Buying A Gift For A Boss

Mar 6, 2008
It is no easy task buying a gift for your supervisor or employer. Go all out and you will get accused of kissing up, don't buy anything and you could burn a relationship with someone who was expecting at least a small token of appreciation.

So what can you get for your boss to celebrate Christmas, their birthday, or a business anniversary? Here are some helpful suggestions.

A Scrapbook

If you have been employed under your boss for quite awhile, then you can put together a scrapbook of memories, with pictures or mementos to show your boss that the time spent together at work has been excellent and enjoyable. A picture frame could also be included in this type of gift, or even a photo album of memories.

Gift Baskets

It is quick and easy to do and everyone loves them. A gift basket of muffins, chocolates or specialty coffee is always a hit. Mix things up with jam, tea and biscuits or anything that may celebrate your boss's hobbies or heritage.

Books

Is your boss a book lover? If so, get him or her certificates to a book store or buy them a book by their favorite author. They will appreciate the attention to detail and the fact that when they talk about themselves and their interests, you listen.

Gift Certificates

Like a gift basket, these gifts are easy to find and easy to buy. It is the perfect type of gift for a boss as it shows you took the time to buy them a gift, without you having to figure out what exactly to buy. The gift is not to over the top that your co-workers are going to think you are kissing up, and it is not to cheap to get you dirty looks from your boss.

Specialty Items

Get your boss an engraved pen with their name on it, or a special desk set that has their personal stationary on it. There are many different types of specialty gifts you can get for the office to show appreciation to your boss, including a name plate, a coffee cup with their name on it or a small plaque for their desk.

The key thing to remember when buying a gift for your boss is to not make it to big or expensive, but also not to waste money or time on a poor gift. In fact, a poor gift will look worse than if you go over the top or don't get a gift at all.
