What Gifts to Buy for Your Boss

Deciding what to buy for your boss can be quite a bit of a dilemma.
Buying something exorbitant or expensive could be embarrassing,
yet something too small might make you look cheap. This is one gift
where you defi nitely need to stop, think and proceed before you zero in
on it. Avoid picking up something too personal like items of clothing or
jewelry to avoid embarrassment.

One of the wonderful gifts you can give your boss is a remembrance
of successes or good times shared. Get a group picture of your boss with
co-workers and put it in an attractive photo frame or album and gift it.
Flowers are great for any occasion; send your boss a generous bouquet
of fresh fl owers with a warm message.

Cute Desk Accessories

Desk accessories are a good option. Funky cartoon pen stands can break
the monotony of work. A small art piece like a small framed painting, a
statue, animal sculptures and so on will also be appreciated. Inspiration
paperweights or plaques which contain an inspiring message can be just
the thing to perk up a day. Clocks are always appreciated, look out for an
unusual clock, maybe in wood or silver.

Business Gifts

A silver plated business card holder will be an accessory that will be
cherished. A deluxe leather business portfolio or a project manager’s
portfolio kit will also make a great gift. You could also gift desktop
leather gift sets, leather passport holders, leather cheque book holders
and similar functional gifts. Designer pen sets make classic gifts that
every boss will love you for.

Books are a good gift that will be cherished. If you know the kind of
stuff your boss reads, pick up a book. Alternately you could gift a gift
voucher to a bookstore. You can gift a magazine subscription and your
boss will enjoy the gift all year through.

Pamper your boss with a gourmet gift basket. Pick up a gourmet chocolate
basket, wine basket or one that stocks up gourmet goodies like fi ne
cheeses or cookies. Dried fruit or nut selections are also a great idea.
Most bosses are stressed out. Gift something that will bring
relaxation – a CD with the sounds of the seashore or birdsong make
lovely gifts. You can also gift a set of exotic and aromatic oils. Bath sets
with luxury soaps, shower gels, candles and so on make a relaxing gift
too.

Use these pointers to fi nd the perfect gift for your boss and watch him/
her light up with a million dollar smile when you give the gift.

you wouldn’t have a job if he was any smarter.
