I just started full time at my job.

I was a part time employee in the past.

My new fo workers have gotten me gifts.

I felt very included but have no idea if I should reciprocate. It's possible that I won't see some of them until after the hoilday.

Funds are low. I wanted to get food or something simple. They are all women.

I am doing movie night at home baskets for everyone on that sort of list this year. A small blanket, a $5 movie, bag of popcorn, and some candy.

I only buy for two ladies that I work with (we have worked very closely together for years) and I usually spend around $10 each.  One lady I've gotten a Wawa gift card because she stops there every morning for coffee and the other lady I'm going to get a gift certificate to a local nail salon. 

Other coworkers have brought in a holiday snack to share with the office which is always appreciated, too.

Is there a day where the majority of them will be there? All though it would be nice to include everyone that is likely not gonna happen. There will always be someone who will be out. So if there's a day where only one or two will be out bring in a muffin basket for the others. When you see those who were out say, I'm sorry I missed you. How about I buy you a cup of coffee sometime?

Are they holiday gifts or welcome to the office gifts. If office gifts a simple muffin thank you basket would suffice. If holiday gifts, I am not sure.
