We all know what we want from our boss this Christmas. A giant raise, or a hefty bonus to help pay for those Christmas presents sitting ’round the tree. We always want a gift from our boss, but year after year do we fail to ever stop and give him or her a gift? While shopping for the boss is not an easy task, first think about the rapport you might have with him or her. Is a personal gift appropriate, or would it be better if you went in with the office and purchased a group gift? Whatever you may decide to go with, rest assured you’ve found the best gift for your boss right here.
If you are going solo on a gift for your boss and know that your boss is a golf junkie, consider buying him some prescription golf balls. Three golf balls are housed inside their own ‘Par-scription’ bottle. The label reads, ‘Use daily to relieve stress, repeat as needed.’ A set of three bottles is only $11.95. Personalization is also available.
If you want to go in on a group gift for your boss, consider buying your boss golf lessons with a pro golfer to help them brush up on their game. Many higher end golf ranges will offer lessons with pro golfers. The cost is only $200-300 per lesson. Your boss will love taking some time away from work to up his game and learn from the best. It might even pay off next time he hits the golf course with clients.
if your boss fills your meetings with sentimental sap, consider getting them a personalized gift. A personalized or engraved picture frame is the perfect gift to house a family photo. If you are going in on a group gift, a digital photo frame to display family and work photos is a great gift to show your boss how much they mean to you. Digital photo frames are available at almost any retail location now, and prices have dropped dramatically over the last year. A decent digital photo frame will cost you about $75-95 depending on the resolution and the amount of pictures the frame can store.
Your boss may be into more nostalgic type items, so consider an old fashioned personal soda machine to sit at your boss’ desk. Perpetual Kids offers a 12 drink nostalgic drink-o-matic soda machine for $150. This is perfect gift for the boss who is always stuck behind the desk and needs an afternoon soda pick up. You can also buy a personal candy bar dispenser for only $20 at places like Walmart if you’re looking to give a personal gift from yourself.
Office Playground also offers a huge selection of office appropriate gifts. From stress relieving gifts, to fun desktop basketball games, to nostalgic and retro office gifts, you’ll find an appropriate gift for your boss.
If you want to send a gag gift to send your boss into a fit of laughter, head to Baron Bob’s for some truly funny gifts at an affordable price. For the boss who is always in the bathroom, you can buy the Potty Putter to help out his golf game. If your boss is always late, consider the flying alarm clock. The top of the alarm clock goes flying. Until your boss is able to stop and find the flying part and dock it at the base, he won’t be able to stay warm under his covers. This is a surefire way of getting him to work on time and most gifts are extremely affordable at under $30.
Whatever you decide to get your boss this holiday season, you’ll find that any of these gifts will cover a wide range of personalities.
