Gift ideas for female colleagues

It is usual to exchange gifts between colleagues for special occasions. When looking for a gift for a female colleague, we can think of something inexpensive, suitable for the workplace and that suits the personality of the person.
For example, for a coffee-loving person, we can offer samples of coffee or a mug, for a person who likes to display her photos, we can choose a new frame, for a person attached to her home, an element of decoration will be appreciated.
Bath products and body treatments are also cheap.
However, the flowers are to be avoided, especially by a man, because the message may seem ambiguous.
Gift certificates for a restaurant or a movie theater are a good alternative.
We will refrain ourselves from making crass jokes or giving sexually inappropriate gifts.
