Are you wondering what the perfect gift would be for an accountant this holiday season? We did the legwork and went around the office surveying our team of accountants. Some initial responses ranged from luxury cars to extravagant vacations (which we’re guessing aren’t gifts they’re likely to get this holiday season…), so we narrowed down the criteria, and asked them to focus on items that can be used within the confines of the office or on their way to work. That allowed us to narrow down the 10 best items you’ll want to surprise a loved one, friend, colleague, coworker – or possibly add to a wish list of your own.
The list caters to all budgets and all items are guaranteed to make Accountants happier while doing all that exciting number crunching.
We hope you find it helpful.
