From awkward office holiday parties to forced family gatherings, events around the holidays seem to always be accompanied by a gift exchange of some sort. Whether you need a silly white elephant gift or are someone’s secret Santa, we have presents for everyone on your list. Yes, even your chatty coworker. Read on for 5 awesome ideas for your next gift exchange and spend more time enjoying the snack table and less time stressing out over whether or not the recipient of your gift is going to like what you’ve given them.
For the Coworker Who Puts “Casual” in “Business Casual”
It’s time for a new tea-shirt. They’ll love the super-soft, yet durable fabric and you’ll love seeing them in something outside of their typical band t-shirts and worn basics. We personally love this Sip, Sip Hooray t-shirt and this Sip Me Baby One More Time tee and think they will too. PS. the Sip, Sip Hooray t-shirt has a matching mug!
For the Indecisive Relative
Whether it’s choosing what they want for dinner or whether they’re going to attend the family trip this year, we all have that relative who has a hard time making up their mind and sticking to it. Our Black Box Sampler is the perfect gift for the indecisive person in your life. Filled with an assortment of teas, this sampler pack gives them the freedom to try everything instead of choosing just one.
For the Outdoorsy Officemate
This popular enamel mug is perfect for the outdoorsy officemate in your life as it will handle the knocks of travel and bears the motto 'The Adventure Begins'. With a compass detail on the base, this durable mug is ideal for camping, festivals or journeys closer to home - like the one from your couch to the kitchen and back.
For the Coworker Who is Always Cold
Our HT Snowstorm Survival Guide will help warm up the coldest of coworkers (talking about their body temperature, of course). We've hand-picked four of our coziest teas, each perfect for staying warm when the weather outside is frightful. From herbal favorites perfect for winding down to black teas that'll perk them up, this collection has a tea that's ready to get them through the snow.
For the Bride or Groom to Be
Although they have their love to keep them warm, newly engaged couples will enjoy wrapping their hands around a toasty, handcrafted Mr. and Mrs. mug filled with our Wedding Tea this winter. If your sweethearts like something a little sweeter, our natural honey beverage stirrers included in our wedding gift will help take their brew to the next level.

I am a librarian and host our library’s book club. For Christmas I decided to have a formal British tea for our members. I used the sterling tea set my mother got in England in the 1950’s and my collection of British tea pots. Along with scones, shortbread, traditional Christmas cake and biscuits, I served a variety of Harney teas including Victorian London Fog, Paris, Paris decaf, Soho and chocolate tea. The members loved tasting your teas. Several have ordered their favorites. Now I serve at least two of your teas at our monthly meetings.
My co-worker had a Mother’s Day and asked me what tea she should serve. I gave her a variety of Harney teas that I enjoy and directed her to your site. She chose Soho, Dragon Pearl Jasmine, Vanilla Cormoro, African Autumn and Hot Cinnamon Spice. Everyone loved your teas. The children especially enjoyed the Vanilla Cormoro and African Autumn. Harney Teas are the vest best!
