I just started working at a new job in September and my co-workers are each all getting my boss a Christmas gift. What’s strange is that they all talk about it – constantly – and it seems like some sort of competition to outdo each other. The other day just after a meeting, my boss mentioned he was looking forward to what everyone had for him this year. This is not some joke gift thing either. It’s serious. It seems like I’m expected to get in on the gift giving. I hadn’t planned on getting anything much less tell anyone about it. I feel like i’m in some weird alternate reality. Now I have no idea what to do. Do I say something to my boss, go along with it, or say and do nothing? Gift anxiety in Kitchener
