2. A Plant
You know the person sitting next to you who got the amazing bouquet from her boyfriend/husband/partner that she just happened to let it sit at the front desk for all to see? Well, pity her because her flowers ( and possibly her relationship) are going to be dead in a week. And while her flowers are in the office garbage can, you’ll be watering your lovely plant . My advice is to get a rubber plant or something that doesn’t need a lot of attention (unlike your office mate).
