12 Gifts for People Who Can't Get Enough of The Office


There hasn't been a new episode of The Office since 2013, but the fandom surrounding the series isn't showing any signs of slowing down. It's still one of the most-watched shows on Netflix, and according to many reports, a reboot may one day land on NBC's new Peacock streaming platform. Another area where The Office is alive and well is in merchandise. From T-shirts and Funko Pops to coloring books and home decor, there are plenty of ways for fans to show their Dunder Mifflin pride beyond just binging the series over and over.

So if you're searching for a gift for an Office fan in your life, or are just in the market for a Dundie award to put on your own mantle, here are 12 items that should fit the bill.

1. "That's What She Said" Button; $16

Image of a white button that reads "That's What She Said" in black lettering

It's a classic joke: Someone, a friend or a relative, maybe, says something mildly suggestive, and the only obvious response is to shoot back with, "That's what she said." This button will do the talking for you—in Michael Scott's voice. You'll never have to think long or hard for a comeback with this unique gift at your ready (that's what she said).

Buy it: Amazon

2. Dundie Award; $19

Hallmark Released Some Adorable Harry Potter Ornaments—Just In Time for Christmas


Even if you never received your letter of acceptance to Hogwarts on your 11th birthday, you can still add some magic to your Christmas tree this year with some Harry Potter Christmas ornaments from Hallmark. These pieces have more of a minimalist style than Hallmark's other Potter releases, which are modeled to look identical to the characters' movie counterparts. But with that simplicity comes a unique charm that is sure to be popular with Potterheads.

Shoppers can look for seven different ornaments, which include Harry, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger in mid-flight, as well as Hedwig, the Sorting Hat, Dobby, and the Hogwarts Crest. Each one comes with a hanger, so is ready to be put on your Christmas tree as soon as its out of the packaging. You can find each one for $9 on Amazon—though be forewarned that Harry is currently out of stock (but you can find an equally adorable replacement Potter for $8).

If you can’t get enough wizarding gifts this holiday season, then check out our Harry Potter gift guide, which includes everything from magical cookbooks to chess sets.
