You can also find T-shirts on sale at times from Disney Store.com. I would do the tins of hot chocolate or coffee or maybe a pin. My last boss was a male and loved Ariel (clamshells and all) so he got an Ariel pin. Now I do nto buy the office anything...and they never get me anything, or anything for anyone else.

But when I was 26 I did purchase things for people at the office...at 44 I just don't any more.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

You can find Disney mouse pads pretty cheap, and they're cute. They're also lightweight and easy to pack.

This isn't exactly the one I was thinking of, but it's $13. http://www.disneystore.com/idesign-b...11295/1000235/ You can find them in most of the Disney park stores.

Any of the packaged snack items in a tin would be good. Could always use the tin afterwards to hold their office/desk supplies.
My son's girlfriend always gets shot glasses as keepsakes from each place she goes.

I also buy for a few of my co-workers, but since they are not necessarily Disney fans, I opt for a non-Disney gift. Epcot has the best offerings for this IMO. I've given: murano glass Christmas ornaments (from Italy pavilion), jewelry (most pavilions have jewelry), I think Mexico might have tequila, Mexico also has these great blankets (not too big)...are they hockey fans? Canada has hockey stuff, soccer in the UK,
I believe In downtown Disney you can custom make a disney themed t-shirt too.
Good Luck!

Do lots of people really buy gifts for their co-workers when they go on vacation? It's not something we do where I work. I think it's great that you are thinking of them. I wouldn't spend much, if you know they like coffee a mug is nice or just some candy. Men always like food.

We don't. I teach on a faculty of over 120 teachers; it simply wouldn't make sense.

I have gotten thank you gifts from people who went to Disney and asked me for advice, but that's about it.

Mickey Treats or any other type of edible works well.

This. I know my mom buys small things for the dog-sitter and whoever else helped make the trip possible (neighbor that picks up the mail,etc) That also includes coworkers having to work double shifts while I am on vacation. It's just courteous. Never anything big, food makes good gifts. I'm partial to the bags of Mickey pasta.

One thing that was pretty popular that my husband bought for his co-workers were the ice cube trays. Some guys still talk about it to this day and that was many years ago.

gift ideas

You could always opt for some funky socks or ties-depending on the dress code in your workplace, etc.

When we went, my daughter was in Kindergarten and wanted to get something for all of her classmates. At first, all I could think of was dollar signs. We finally found a decorative tray that had chocolate coins in it. Luckily, there was one chocolate for each of her classmates (with a foil wrapper embossed with a different character), and her teacher was able to keep the decorative tray.

With that said, maybe you could find a set of something and divide it into threes.

Good luck and have fun.

P.S. Maybe while at Epcot, see if you can have some of the rare, imported beers shipped home.

I think it depends where you work. At my old job, I wouldn't have bothered. My department now is pretty small (only 4 of us). We are the Global Logistics/Customs Compliance group and arguably have some of the most stressful jobs in the company so we have all become pretty close! I have a friend in Payroll who gets along with her coworkers but is not on a buying gifts type of level with them.

I think food is the way to go. Not too expensive but definitely won't go to waste!

I don't know who starts all these, to me, stupid traditions....for sure, I've never done the worker souvenir gift... Believe the wife gas on occasion and I called her out on it.... What's the point, you're not related to them and they don't really care... So, to each their own!
