On Boss's Day Employers Need Love Too
Yeah, we know - the big cheese, head honcho, El Jefe - whatever you call him or her, they're the boss, and maybe they're not always our favorite people. But they work hard, they get pressure from both sides of the company structure, and they're a big part of making sure we still have a job. So, it's a good idea to make sure to appreciate how hard it can be to be the boss; they deserve thanks for their leadership, compassion, mentoring and support. And there's no better time or reason to send a gift than National Boss’s Day annually observed on October 16. Originally started in Illinois in 1962, the holiday quickly gained popularity in the United States and has now spread to Australia, the UK, India, and South Africa.
Don't be shy about giving your employer the recognition and appreciation on Boss's Day that they truly deserve. The best way to go about funding these ideas might be chipping in with your co-workers, it will allow you to take the financial burden off yourself, get a nicer gift for your boss and show a team spirit. Traditionally, Boss's Day gifts include flowers, balloons, and different keepsakes. However, if you want to do something a little different and more special for the upcoming holiday, try one of the following ideas.
Office Accessories with Style and Function
Whether your employer is male or female, they will certainly appreciate a corporate gift
that is usable in everyday life. A gift for Boss’s Day should be both classy and functional so that it's used often and looked upon fondly as a constant reminder of employees' appreciation.
Executive desk and office accessories like keepsake boxes, a globe, miniature clock, paperweight, photo frame, or desk set are some of the all-time favorite gift ideas for your employer that can be useful for many years to come. A beautiful personalized pen set is another classic, it says office, it says chic, and it says professional. Every time your boss reaches for a pen he or she will see the token of your thoughtfulness and respect.
If you want to help give your chief's office a cozier feel, give them a lovely plant, bouquet of flowers in a vase, or a set of candles. Such a gift will suit any workplace, add a splash of color and life to the space, and brighten their day.
Tea or Coffee Break
If your boss is a real coffee addict or a tea connoisseur, then there's nothing they will appreciate more than a gift basket filled with a fine selection of gourmet coffees and teas complemented with chocolate and cookies or optional liquor or cognac that go so well with a cup of their favorite invigorating drink. A great addition to such gift is a stylish or personalized mug that will put a smile on their face each time they use it.
Every head honcho needs to wake up in the morning, cheer up during the day, or set the right mood at an important meeting, so you can be sure that your tea and coffee gift will definitely hit the spot!
When you are not certain what to choose for your employer on Boss's Day, or it seems like your boss is the guy who has everything, consider an edible gift. Select anything from a gourmet basket
with a selection of cheeses and meats to simple snacks or fruit and sweets depending on your recipient's tastes.
You can also give your supervisor something they can enjoy after hours. Almost anyone can appreciate a good bottle of wine with complementary edible goodies all beautifully packaged to suit the occasion.
Show your supportive employer or go-getting boss your gratitude, respect, appreciation, and well wishes this Boss’s Day. Express your professional sentiments appropriately with a sense of genuine style, sophistication, and a token that will show how much you appreciate their guidance and your working relationship.
