Complete the circle with funny office accessories, funny office decor, funny office signs, and funny office supplies. Show your co-worker or friend that you “get them” and give them the gift of a little stress relief!

Funny oven mits

There is an entire world of gift giving out there dedicated to funny oven mits. If you have not received or given a funny oven mit, do it now before someone steals your idea!

Is this out-of-the-ordinary gift (starting with the letter O) for a Christmas exchange, white elephant exchange, or an alphabet gift exchange? Whatever the reason, we have got you covered with our list of gifts that start with ‘O’ for adults.

Letter ‘O’ gifts: anything ORANGE!

Orange-colored gifts count my friends, in the game of alphabet exchange. Unless your host has made it against the rules 🙁 Imagine all the fun you can have giving a big box of orange colored food, complete with orange decorations for an Orange Party.

Letter ‘O’ gifts: anything ORGANIC!

The world’s your oyster (if it’s organic!) If you are looking for gifts that are eco-friendly and sustainable, organic gifts are a great choice. They are not only good for the environment, but they are also healthier and safer for the recipient.

Choose from organic food to organic personal care products. If you have a personal connection with the grower, or have a favorite product yourself, that would be the organic gift to give. Or support a local person who stands behind Guadalupe Roastery is one such company.

I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying their amazing coffee. My niece introduced me to the decadent blend (who happens to be good friends with the owners). Guadalupe Roastery seeks out growers who practice sustainable agriculture methods. They are also a Farmer First Organization, which means that they pay more for their coffee beans because they believe in helping hard-working farmers get out of poverty.

Products like organic tea, organic coffee, and organic chocolate are grown without the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides

An organic food basket is a great gift for anyone who loves food. You can fill it with organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, and snacks. You can also include organic spices, sauces, and condiments. This gift is perfect for someone who is health-conscious and loves to cook.

It doesn’t stop there. There are organic food and products for dogs, organic food and products for pets, and all of your organic pet supplies.

Oh, and if you keep it local and small business, you get a gold star!

Creative and novelty gifts starting with ‘O’

Origami Kit. For a gift that’s both creative and relaxing, consider an origami kit. This gift is perfect for anyone who loves crafting or wants to try something new.

Ocarina. Made popular by the video game Zelda, teenagers and young adults are eager to become ocarina players (or more accurately “ocarina flutist”). As a mom, I admit that I have a few in my house. Don’t forget to the give instructions (some ocarinas ship with no directions on how to play an ocarina).

Infused Olive Oil Gift Set. Infused olive oil bumps up your ordinary olive oil into the realm of gourment. There are many independent small business operations that infuse their own olive oil, like the couple from Pickle Creek Herbs in Iowa. This couple were former scientists who came back to run the family farm. Anytime you have a good back story to go with the gift, it makes your present super-memorable!

Original Artwork. For anyone who appreciates art, consider getting them some original artwork. This could include a painting, a sculpture, or a piece of pottery. Other options might include a personalized metal sign, or a commissioned piece of artwork with their pet or home, or landscapes of the local region (Etsy artists rock this!).

Organizers start with the letter ‘O’!

Gift the gift of organization. In fact, that is my personal favorite and a way to stay away from gifts that just add more clutter to the home. Organization projects can add up fast. For example, say the person wants to do a closet makeover – that would involve hangers, drawers, cubbies, sock organizers, etc.

Organizers are a one-size fits all gift because everyone could benefit from organizing their life:

Gifts that start with ‘O’ for the kitchen

Let’s just make this easy. Get anything from the Oxo Good Grip Company. Oxo is a company known for high-quality kitchen tools. If you have ever watch America’s Test Kitchen on public TV, you know that when they review products, it’s often the Oxo products that come out the winner.

Gifts for the office

Offices get neglected, whether it’s a company office, or a home office. Lot’s of opportunity here, folks! Maybe the person needs a new:

Don’t forget things for Zoom meetings and online conferences, such as noise-canceling headphones. Scope out or start a casual conversation what the giftee might need, and go from there.
