No need to worry about what to get your boss during their special occasion. These gifting ideas for bosses should help you select the best gift for every occasion and event.
- Breckenridge Bourbon
You must know your boos before you get them some bourbon; it can also be easy to know bourbon lovers. Check their office alcohol selection or home alcohol selection. There are many bourbon options to select as an ideal gift to your boss; however, some stand out and leave a lasting memory as a gift. This is your chance to create lasting impressions or inform your boss how well you know them.
Breckenridge bourbon is not any other ordinary gift; it has some taste of prestige and class that comes with it. The taste is fantastic and rare, but you can get it from exclusive locations. If your boss truly loves bourbon, they will be amazed by the gift.
- Journal or Notebook
This is the best gift a secretary can give to the boss; otherwise, it is good for those bosses who love records about their days and plans. As you purchase the journal or the notebook, consider customizing it to make them look appealing. Add their name initials on the books, or you can add their surname at the left edge bottom. Do not buy a prominent journal or notebook; buy a medium-sized, light, attractive book. You can buy a pen with a similar cover to complement the main gift.
A painting would make a perfect gift but not any other painting; a customized one would be a better option. Sometimes it is good to order a painter to paint something new and unique. If you are going to create a new one, then their portrait would be the best. This is a good gift for both male and female bosses. You can take or download one of their best pictures from social media, send it to an artist and ask them to paint something unique.
If you are going to select other art, you need to consider various factors. Art can be expensive; hence your budget should be the first consideration. Next, be sure about their taste and preferences for art. Alternatively, get them something contemporary and unique that can blend with different environments.
- Kindle or Tablet
If your boss is a reader, the best gift is a book, but that shall only limit them. You can give them a gift offering unlimited access to all the reading materials they wish to access, and that is an Amazon Kindle. This is the best gift to give to a boss who has been instrumental in your company’s growth and development.
The other option is to get them an iPad or tablet. They can use it for reading purposes, i.e., reading company documents while en route home or carrying it for travel reasons. If they have a kindle, a tablet would be a better choice, and vice versa. Select a light tablet with attractive color and perhaps a tablet pack to carry the tablet or a detachable keyboard.
- Personalized Airpods
Bosses sometimes find it challenging to have virtual meetings since they do not have all the virtual call accessories to make the job more comfortable. Instead of earphones, you can get them AirPods to enable them to have discrete meetings even when driving or walking. You shall have saved the entire company the burden of listening to their boss talk loudly while on a meeting call. Equally, the department will happily have its boss embrace more virtual calls than physical meetings.
Instead of office and laptop zoom calls, the AirPods can change everything, enabling them to have mobile virtual work calls while attending other events. If you buy AirPods, ensure you get the best quality. Preferably, buy them Apple versions. You can also buy an Airpod bag for safe storage. To make everything more attractive, you can customize the storage bags by inscribing their names and initials.
Tickets can be a good and readily affordable gift, but if you are going to get one, you need to do some research to ensure you buy the right ticket for an event the boss enjoys. First, get them a ticket to a concert by their favorite musician. Music or concert tickets are ideal for single bosses but not married ones.
If the boss is older and married, perhaps you can get them a ticket to a museum if they love art or exhibitions. The other ticket option is one for a major event or training seminar. You can get them a ticket to a talk show or event related to their profession. There are always corporate events in town; hence you can readily get the tickets; the only challenge is getting an affordable ticket.
- Mug And Accessories
How well do you know your boss? What type of coffee do they like most? Do they like tea? Once you understand these questions, you can make a mug and accessories. If your boss is an early riser, you can get them a mug and a flask to store some hot drinks. The best approach is to get them the mug, their favourite coffee, cocoa, or tea bags.
This is one of the best gifts an assistant or a secretary can give to the boos, especially on their birthday. Do not just buy any other mug; ensure it is classy and attractive. You can also add some writing to it. For instance, ‘the boss of the year, the best boss.’ The words you write on it should invoke some emotion and act as an appreciation for their goodness towards you and congratulation for the job they are doing. If you are unsure about their favorite color, get a white mug with some black writing on it, then wrap it and present them.
Selecting a gift for your boss should not be a challenge; all it takes is knowing a few things about them and then getting them a gift based on what you know. Do not just get any other gift; remember, the purpose of the gift is to congratulate and inform them how much you know them. Best of luck with your next gift selection
