It's the time of giving, but one of the questions we have to ask ourselves this time of year is who exactly do we give to?

There are any number of unofficial "rules" when holiday giving is concerned - tipping service workers, donating to charity, etc.

When it comes to giving gifts at the office, what rules of thumb do you follow?

Many times, supervisors give small gifts to those who report directly to them. You may give a token of your gratitude to a person or department that has been particularly helpful to you over the year, or you may just bring a big goodie basket for the whole office to share.

But how do you decide? Do you give to everyone? Do you just give to those who you work with on a daily basis? Or has it gotten to the point where, so you don't offend anyone, you don't bring gifts to the office? Tell us in the comments!
