Who’s making a list, and checking it twice? At Kate’s official engagements, its her private secretary – Rebecca Deacon. Kate and Rebecca work closely every day, and Rebecca is always by Kate’s side. For the perfect colleague, you need the perfect gift.
Navigating the world of professionalism and friendship can be difficult. For your desk mates and coworkers who you’d like to celebrate the holidays with, a thoughtful-yet-impersonal-yet-still-meaningful gift is in order – and its a tall order at that! We have a few ideas for the Rebecca Deacons in your life…
A snuggly scarf: I like scarves as gifts – there isn’t any sizing guess work, but you still get the satisfaction of seeing your friend wear the beautiful scarf you gifted to her. Kate might choose one from her favorite brand – such as this one by Alice Temperley – in a color Rebecca wears quite often, such as black or navy. Temperately London | $700
Pretty pencils: If your Secret Santa has a budget, novelty pencils are a great little something for their desk stocking. These Kate Spade pencils will only set you back $20, but the cutesy decoration on the pencils make them extra special. They are functional and festive! Kate Spade | $20
A spa day: Your coworkers, assistants, and colleagues work hard every day! They deserve to be spoiled. A spa day is a great way to thank them for all their hard work. If a massage isn’t in the budget, a spa kit is almost as good! I love a good at-home facial, like this one from Dyptique. Dyptique Paris | $75
A special scent: Candles, like scarves, are another lovely gift that doesn’t have too much meaning. A fancy, luxurious candle can make your coworker feel extra special every time she lights it. Kate is a huge fan of Jo Malone, so this special edition “Roasted Chestnut” candle is a fabulous gift to give. Jo Malone | $195
A neat notebook: For your assistant who is jotting notes all day, nothing say special like a Smythson notebook. They are the ultimate luxury item to scribble at your desk. I love the idea of the “Fairy Tale” notebook for the assistant to a woman who lives a real-life fairytale… Smythson | $60
