“Fa la la la la, la la, ka-ching!” It’s that time of year again. With supply chain and shipping issues aplenty, it’s never too early to start your holiday shopping. We here at Nerds are bringing you fandom gift guides to help you out. If you’re buying for someone who loves The Office, today’s gift guide has everything you need.

The Office Inspired Books
With The Office’s explosion in popularity came an explosion of more merch, including a wide variety of books. First up is The Office: Official Party Planning Guide to Planning Parties. This officially endorsed book is the perfect how-to for throwing the best parties. There are step-by-step recipes, crafts, pranks, and more. Purchase it here.
For the younger fans (or maybe yourself. We don’t judge) is A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary. This adorable picture book brings those beloved characters to a young age group. Readers follow Michael Scott as he tries to be the best line leader. It’s available for purchase here.
Third is an upcoming oral history, titled Welcome to Dunder Mifflin. The book brings together a plethora of inside stories, untold secrets, and more memories straight from the cast and creative team. The book was written by cast member Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) and executive producer Ben Silverman. Welcome to Dunder Mifflin releases on November 16. Pre-order it here.
It’s no secret that Funko Pop!s are all the rage. And they have some A+ Office figures that will elevate every Office fan’s collection. Since there are so many to choose from, we’ve picked a few of our favorites.
- No Nonsense Jim
- Pumpkinhead Dwight (available for pre-order, releasing December 1)
- Kevin Pre-Chilipocalypse
- Casual Day Meredith
- Jan with candle and wine
The Office Crochet
Crochet isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this crochet kit for The Office is a wonderful gift for craftier fans. The kit comes with a booklet featuring many Dunder Mifflin employees, and materials to make Jim and Pam. Other designs also include Pam’s teapot and the Dundie Award. It’s available for purchase here.
Every blank wall space is an opportunity. So, take that opportunity and gift someone a poster of Pam’s painting of the Dunder Mifflin building. This 18×24 poster is a great way to commemorate the series. It’s a must-have for any fan of The Office. Buy it here.
Speaking of Pam, her teapot works as a slightly more subtle gift. Fill this teapot with trinkets of inside jokes you share with your Office fan. Maybe even toss in a sentimental letter everyone will be dying to read. Either way, this memorable item will be an excellent addition to every Dunder Mifflin collection. You can buy one here.
World’s Best Boss Mug
Arguably one of the most recognizable items from the show is Michael Scott’s mug. Now, your Office fan can have their very own! The standard mug comes in an 11 oz. or 15 oz. size. You can also purchase a personalized 15 oz. version here.
Office Ladies Podcast Merch
Pam and Angela may have had their differences, but Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsey are the best of friends. In 2019, the duo launched their Office Ladies podcast. They discuss all things The Office, breaking down episodes, sharing behind-the-scenes stories, and more. Their podcast also has a merch shop! There’s a lot to choose from. So, here are a few ideas if you’re looking for stocking stuffers:
- Enamel pin set (featuring the teapot, Sprinkles, and the Dundie)
- Desk Cornhole
- Pencil pack (featuring some of the most infamous quotes from The Office)
- Princess Unicorn tumbler (yes, this absolutely IS a stocking stuffer.)
The Office Themed Games
Game nights among family and friends are a common occurrence. So, make it a themed night with games inspired by The Office. Kick off the night with a couple rounds of UNO. While this Office version is the familiar (and oddly polarizing) card game we all know, it also has its own special rule.
Next, put those Office memes to good use in What Do You Meme? The Office Edition. The game brings familiar and new content. It’s well-suited to any fan of The Office who loves making memes.
Finally, there’s been a murder! Who killed Toby Flenderson?? With The Office Clue, your loved ones can enjoy their own murder mystery. This Dunder Mifflin twist on a classic game is sure to be a hit. It features employee badges, Dunder Mifflin themed weapons, and much more! Purchase the game here.
George Foreman Grill
If there’s one item every fan of The Office needs, it’s a George Foreman grill. You never know when your loved one will want to wake up to the smell of bacon. Just make sure they keep it far away from their bed.
