Secret Santa help: My work does Secret Santa every year (small group of 8 people). The limit is $25 I have no time during normal business hours so I have to be able to pick this up before 10am or after 8pm before Thursday the 23rd. My co-worker likes musicals, Firefly, and is gluten free. Thoughts? I'm local to NYC.

I'm leaving my job at an environmental foundation after 5 years. My last day is tomorrow, and the 15 people in the office are starting in a new office space on Monday. I'm probably going to write individual cards to a few people, but what's a good gift for the whole group? They're overstocked with chocolate, plants, and cut flowers.

My creative coworkers aren't famous
, yet deserve some recognition for their efforts on a tough project with an impossible client. Internally, I'm singing their praises and making their successes known to management. Additionally, I'd like to get them a treat. Here's where you come in: [more inside]

I work in a small office and two employees are leaving. The first was a midlevel exec and the other was an executive assistant. We are throwing a going away party for both of them, and the boss has charged a couple of us with the mission of getting them each something on a budget of $500 each.
