The only thing more nerve-wracking than not having a gift for your boss (when everyone else does) is having a gift that's all wrong. So keep these few simple guidelines in mind. Steer away from gifts with a punchline that she might not get. Skip over any gifts that feel too personal. And head straight to this gift list of ideas for your female boss. She'll be happy with her gift, and you'll be relieved that you got it right.

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?).

1
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.

2
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.

3
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.

4
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.

5
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.

6
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.

7
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.
