Gifts For Your Boss

There are not too many employees out there who are excited to buy a gift for their boss. It is intimidating, frustrating, and time-consuming  – all things you have had enough of at work. These days buying online is the easiest and preferred way to buy gifts that are not overly personal or personalized; I will guide you through some not-so-generic gift ideas for the boss that you can source online, right here.

Creative gift-giving is fun. If you’re stuck for ideas, think about what type of gift you want to give. What is your relationship with your boss like? While buying a gift for the boss might not be top priority for you, putting in a few moments’ effort will make the whole process a lot quicker and more simple. 

There are a few avenues you can take when brainstorming gift ideas for your boss. Professional, like a charger kit for the office. For something personal, think familiarity and pick tickets to a game, show, or experience. Personalized gifts for your boss might include planters or artwork. A practical gift for the boss could look like a coffee machine or ice cube maker. 

PROFESSIONAL

These items are for the boss or colleague you do not know well or someone you might not be directly working with. If you want to keep the gift serious rather than making it a joke gift (so tacky for the boss), look around the bosses’ office. If they are celebrating an occasion and not moving to another office, you might find inspiration here in the items that are missing, so use your investigative instincts. You might even ask a few sneaky questions to gather information about needs and wants.

PERSONAL

Buying a gift for a boss that you know more intimately is usually not too difficult, but finding original ideas can be tough. Sometimes the most appropriate gift is traditional, like wine, and sometimes the occasion might call for something a little more exciting, like hang gliding.

  • Favorite bottle of wine
  • Theatre or game tickets
  • Wine tasting box or distillery samples
  • Adventure experience
  • Essential oil diffuser

However, these gift ideas require more time on your part. If you’re looking for something quick and easy and want to lean on Amazon’s fast free delivery service, the following gifts might work for you:

Desktop items can be engraved or personalized with images and color

A personalized tote or laptop bag with a monogram is an idea that is simple and easy to pull off

Planters in the workplace give a little life and color. If you are familiar and friendly with your employer, look at mini herb gardens that you can plant herbs in on their behalf (personalized to their tastes) or hanging gardens. Little planters are easily personalized also.
