Getting the perfect present for your
boss may be a bit of a challenge. This is
something that must be well thought of
and well budgeted. Before we get into
the items you can get your boss, here
are some tips when getting that pres-
• DON’T GET TOO PERSONAL – When
it comes to your boss you do not want to
get too personal – that means no per-
fume, jewellery or clothing. In addition to
this, you should not spend too much
money on a gift for your boss – you do not
want to appear as if you asking for
• NO ALCOHOL – Even though your
boss spends most of his time at the club
drinking you should stay away from gift-
ing him alcohol.
• GROUP PRESENT – To stay away
from appearing as if you are looking for
favouritism and especially if you have a
tiny budget, getting all your co-workers to
chip in on a present for the boss is a great
idea. By pooling some funds together you
can get one really good present and a card
that you can all sign.
• NO HOME DELIVERY – never send
your boss’ present to his home – this
could land you and your boss in serious
trouble and awkward situations.
So, let’s get down to what you can
get your boss. There are several items
you can get to suit any budget.
• DESK ORGANISER – This may sound
like a lame present but it is in fact very
useful. There are several unique, extraordi-
nary desk organisers that will truly help
keep your boss’ desk neater.
• SCENTED CANDLES – While your
male boss may like the scent, your female
boss will love this present more.
• TRINKET TRAY – A cute, little tray
that your boss can place little tid-bits in.
Female bosses will love this, but you can
also get masculine versions.
• INDIVIDUAL TEA SET – An individual
tea set can come in handy for the tea or
• PERSONALISED TEACUP/COFFEE
MUG – These are always nice presents to
get for anyone. Get your boss’ name
printed on a coffee mug or teacup or even
a couple words like ‘World’s Greatest
Boss’. It is guaranteed to make his or her
cheeks as red as Santa’s.
• TRAVEL MUG – Get your boss a
stainless steel travel mug for those hectic
days spent in transit.
• STATIONERY – Getting personalised
stationery is also a great idea for your
boss. Fancy pens such as Cross pens can
be engraved with his or her name.
• CLOCK – A clock for his or her desk
would add a nice touch and will always re-
mind him or her of the time. There are so
many fancy, creative clocks for you to
choose from…you will ﬁnd one to suit any
• A GIFT CARD – If you simply don’t
know what to get your boss, go to their
favourite store and purchase a gift card.
To encourage boss to spend time with
their spouse, you can purchase a gift card
to the movies or to a play. If they simply
love their car then you can purchase a gift
card to get their car detailed.
Whatever you decide to give to your
boss remember the idea is not to impress
him/her. It is all in the spirit of giving and
in the spirit of Christmas.
