To be having buyers remorse for gifts for office employees
TowerRavenSeven · 17/12/2019 21:32
I work in a non profit charity office, was hired a little over two months ago. The company is progressive and really tries to cut down on waste, plastic, etc. There are 12 of us, ranging from 22 - 50 for context.
I got for each one of my co-workers a roll (cut to size) beeswax fabric that you use instead of plastic wrap on bowls, etc. I use it and haven’t used plastic wrap in a year, and it really does a good job and you just wipe it clean between uses. It has a decorative label explaining what it is and how to use it, the fabrics are solid red, green and navy. Each one was about £12.
I’m now rethinking this gift. Would you think this an odd gift? It’s either this or nice chocolates. I use mine all the time and would think maybe it’s something that would be handy but you wouldn’t buy yourself so would be a good gift (Or at least not an awful gift)
Yabu = You’d think this gift odd
Yanbu = You’d think this gift a bit unconventional but a nice idea
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Yes a bit odd, but I'm a practical person and would never buy and like to give these a go.
Really depends on your audience, but it's a gift with rwally thoughtful intentions, go for it with confidence that everyone will love it and they more than likely will!

I personally probably wouldn't use it as don't really use clingfilm and being gluten free don't have sandwiches, but would probably use it for dd's lunches. I personally probably wouldn't spend quite as much on a co-worker but wouldn't think you odd for giving that gift.
