How to Get Promotion Worthy Gift Ideas for Your Boss
Bosses: Whether you love 'em or leave 'em, they're in charge - which means that sometimes, you're in charge of getting them a gift. Think positively and shop for gifts that truly rule (and will maybe score you a raise?).
Stick with humor
A sense of humor is great quality - especially if you work in a serious office. Your boss is bound to crack a smile when you gift her with a silly mug, a funny "name plate," or a hilarious desk accessory. Plus, it'll make her more relatable to everyone who steps foot inside her office.
Deck out his desk
A set of high-quality pens, a leather portfolio, a docking station, or a fancy letter opener will upgrade the desk where he likely spends most of his day.
Cater to the traveling boss
A framed map, a portable alarm clock, a toiletry case, or a travel mug are all great gift ideas for a boss who's always on the go. Think also about her actual travel time - a portable neck pillow, a travel blanket, or a weekend bag are thoughtful presents, too.
Consider his family
He's not always the boss. Sometimes he's a husband, a dad, a friend - you know, a person. A picture frame for family photos, a golf set for outings with friends, or a game he can play with his kids show you think of him as an equal as well as a superior.
Encourage her health
Odds are, your boss works a lot. She's the boss, after all! So if you know she likes to keep fit, consider athletic gifts like a yoga mat, a water bottle, or a subscription to fruit-of-the-month club.
Keep him alert
Being the boss requires major brain power. A coffee maker for his office, crossword puzzles to keep his mind sharp, or vitamins to help him function on a high level are all great gift ideas for a boss.
Give her the day off
Reservations at a raved-about restaurant or tickets to a sporting event or concert will help your boss make the most of her weekend.
