So you want to find the perfect gift for a boss or manager? Regardless of the holiday, choose one that's thoughtful and meaningful, but also within budget. Below we offer a curated collection of gift ideas for the boss, depending on his or her style, tastes, hobbies and preferences.
The Techie and Family-Oriented Boss
This individual might really appreciate a great tablet accessory to change out from the ones being used, or even for a different style. Pick up a stylus in a cool color or fun style, or a even a new tablet case or screen protector. For those that love to stay connected while on-the-go, consider a Bluetooth headset or a wireless phone charger. With anything tech related, there's always new gadgets and other options to consider in a variety of price ranges. It's easy to stay on top of the latest and greatest.
If your boss loves sharing treasured photos of the family, children and pets, choose a picture frame since one can never have too many of these. There are decorative frames to display proudly on a desk or bookcase along with a favorite portrait or child's artwork. If your boss is tech-savvy, consider a digital photo frame to fill with dozens of photos from family vacations, holidays and work-related events.
The Very Busy Boss
Choose a gift to keep your busy boss organized and on time. Consider a large desk pad calendar that takes center stage or an erasable wall calendar that works great when schedules change at a moment's notice. Consider a handy organizer so he or she can store all critical information in one convenient place or a planner that keeps track of both personal and professional appointments.
The Boss With a Sweet Tooth
If your boss can't resist the urge to snack, give a gift that satisfies a sweet tooth. Send a luscious gourmet dessert cake to share with family or
co-workers. Wrap up a box of cookies, or fill a pretty glass vase with his or her favorite chocolates. For those who might prefer salty snacks, a yummy gift basket filled with potato chips, popcorn, pretzels, peanuts and pistachios is another great idea.
The Hard-to-Please Boss
Does it seem impossible to find a gift that suits your manager? Consider something for the office. An artificial plant is a great way to add a natural and welcoming feel to a work space. You can also decide on a soothing indoor fountain to create a relaxing mood. Wrap up a desk globe to add a distinguished feel to the space, or choose a piece of wall art that suits his or her personality and decorative tastes.
If you're looking for a creative gift idea for the hard-to-please boss, take personality, hobbies and interests into account rather than simply choosing an impersonal gift card. You can stay within budget and find a gift that will be appreciated with just a little thought and creativity.
One last note of caution: when planning holiday celebrations at your office, check your company's internal guidelines and policies about gift giving and any related activities. If you're not sure whether a gift complies, ask someone in Human Resources or a colleague who is knowledgeable about the policy.
