Deck out your desktop and send some end-of-year cheer to your colleagues. Elf yourself, your office pals and other department members to get your workplace feeling more like Santa's workshop. If you're wondering who to elf, try these folks, as you certainly won't want to jingle all by yourself.
Every company has a Scrooge, but instead of shying away from even the grumpiest of Grinches, dole out an extra dose of holiday humor. If you have yet to see your office curmudgeon crack a smile, this might just do the trick.
Don't forget the reserved co-worker who isn't one to join in on your reindeer games. There’s no better icebreaker than a good laugh, and you can never underestimate the power of inclusion. Besides, you’re bound to be buddies after elfing together!
Your boss already knows who’s been naughty or nice, but it never hurts to make them laugh. Thank your supervisor for a great year by elfing them, along with your entire department. You never know, they just might bring you that bonus on your wish list.
Your Work BFF
You might already have matching holiday sweaters, but be sure to remember the person who makes Mondays less painful. You finish each other’s sentences and coordinate your lunches, so there’s obviously no one better to elf than your closest co-worker.
Your Office Crush
Since hanging mistletoe over their desk might be frowned upon by HR, simply Elf Yourself® and your crush. Don't be afraid of rejection; they'll be laughing either way!
