  Men's Health magazine has done the computation, calculated the consequences and has come up with a master plan for your holiday giving to the non-family/loved ones in your life.  I don’t know the formula but here are the results….so you aren’t done shopping yet!

  • Postman: can't accept gifts worth more than $20, so get him a couple of movie passes or a restaurant gift certificate.
  • Trashman: Five bucks each in a nice card.
  • Paper Carrier: $5 minus the cards.
  • Secretary: Work related. Fancy pen, classy desk clock or a nice organizer.
  • Co-Workers: Gift certificates, picture frames, a pretty candle.

Boss: Go in with everybody else for a group gift. Anything else is just schmoozing
