There were a variety of good answers (and good ideas) to choose from among the answers we received, so let's take a look at the results and find out which back up gift tops the Jersey Shore's list.

We'll start the top 3 at #3, which is chocolate or candy (15%). Just keep a few boxes in your desk, or purse and when Ed from accounting shows up at your desk with a gift, even though we has never given you one in the six years you've worked together.

The second most popular back up gift at the Shore is a coffee gift card (23%). When Amanda from HR gets off the elevator with her annual gift for you, and you say to yourself, "Amanda...I knew I forgot someone," just reach into your bag of coffee gift cards, and everyone's happy.

And if those don't appeal to you, some other choices Jersey Shore residents made, even though they didn't make the top 3 include general gift cards and Christmas decorations.
