BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ: ODP), a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions and parent company of Office Depot and OfficeMax, today unveiled the Co-Worker Collection, a new, fun way to shop for the holidays. The collection takes typical co-worker quirks and turns them into gifting opportunities. Perfect for everyone in the office, the Co-Worker Collection is now available online and is coming soon to Office Depot and OfficeMax retail stores.
According to a recent Office Depot survey, 85 percent of workers enjoy exchanging gifts with their co-workers. Ninety-three percent of part- and full-time employees intending to buy a gift indicated that they give holiday gifts because they consider co-workers friends and 25 percent intend on purchasing a playful gift this season.
The Co-Worker Collection features a wide array of everyday office gear with a tongue-in-cheek twist, including items such as the “keep your music to yourself” headphones or the “we get it, it’s yours” label maker. The collection allows you to inject office gifts with a humorous, personal touch – perfect for the phantom pen thief, the 9 a.m. music enthusiast or the disorganized project manager.
“Finding the perfect gift for your co-workers can be exhausting, but we’ve got you covered,” said Tim Rea, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Office Depot, Inc. “This holiday season, Office Depot is introducing the Co-Worker Collection, a light-hearted way of showing you really know and appreciate everyone at work.”
The collection also offers items such as the “I have no idea what you do outside the office” gift card, and many options under $20 to help everyone gift their co-workers with humorous and personalized holiday office gear.
