The season for law firm bonuses, holiday cards and related gift-giving is already upon us.

So this week, we’d like to ask you: Do you give gifts at the office? If so, who are your recipients, and how much do you spend? Do you just buy for the person you report to, the people who report to you, or for co-workers who are truly close friends? Or all of the above?

Tell us instead if you opt out of shopping altogether and hope your co-workers do the same with regard to you. Or if you just bring in some baked goods and call it even.

Answer in the comments.

Featured answer:

Posted by Happy State Bar employee: “I am thankful for my job at a really great forward-thinking state bar association. As a disabled individual I would not be able to keep up with the rigors of private practice, the client dinners, the rain-making, etc. So I am grateful that I have a chance to make a positive difference in the lives of our state bar members as a Bar lawyer and keep working full time even with my health challenges. And of course am grateful for my wonderful son and husband who are truly the best men in the world.”
