What to Get Your BossAt some offices, holiday gift-giving is pretty standardized: The whole department draws names, or you have a gift exchange, or everyone decides to go in together to get the boss a lovely gift basket or some concert tickets. And then at other companies, you're pretty much shooting in the dark. What can you get your manager that will impress her, without going overboard and making her (or anyone else) think you're a brown-noser? (And, if we're really being honest, that won't blow your entire holiday bonus check.)
No matter what type of boss you're shopping for, we've got you covered with these perfect gift picks, all under $50.
six-piece olive oil gift set from Crate & Barrel ($39.95). Or, for something extra special, see if you can snag the recipe for her favorite scone from the bakery down the street, and gift it with a lovely baking tin.
from Etsy ($24).
corporate buzzword flashcards ($10), a decision making paperweight ($15), or the classic: a Michael Scott-style "World's Best Boss" coffee mug ($12).
GlobalGiving gift card. She'll get to pick the projects she wants to support (like helping kids stay in school or training service dogs to help war veterans heal) and see how her money has been put to work through regular updates from the field.
A TaskRabbit gift card will let her hire a temporary assistant for anything she needs, from wrapping presents to hanging photos to running errands.
Chandon Carneros Vintage Brut ($45) and a card reading, "Cheers to another great year!"
