Is your boss’s anniversary or birthday getting closer? Or are you already preparing for Christmas parties at the office? No matter the occasion, your boss will appreciate a nice gift, but you have to be very careful not to offend her. So, here are some of the best present ideas for female bosses that are perfectly respectable and useful.
If your boss can’t be seen without a coffee mug in her hand or on her desk, you can surprise her with something that will make her coffee experiences even better. You can grab a practical mug warmer that serves as a hot coaster for her cup of coffee. This little guy can keep her java steaming all morning. Or, you can choose to grab a thermos mug that is perfect for businesswomen on the go.
No matter if your boss is a big reader or not, a good business book will always come in handy, especially to very ambitious bosses. There are so many great books about business people and business tips that will not only inspire her to work harder but also teach her how to work smarter. Grab one for yourself if you’re eyeing that higher position or that corner office.
If you can see your boss is struggling with all her weekly appointments and meetings, you can gift her with a practical weekly planner. Choose something beautiful like moleskin and she’ll be proud to show it off and carry it with her wherever she goes. Accompany it with a matching pen, and she’ll always have everything under control without stressing out and racking her brain.
If you want to introduce some relaxation and freshness to your boss’s office, opt for a plant. A touch of greenery will look good in any office and create a much better space for concentration and motivation. Additionally, indoor plants are great at cleaning out the air and removing toxins and other harmful particles out of her environment. Grab something that won’t take a lot of her time (succulents or cacti) yet will provide her with all the benefits. Combine your plant with a modern and chic planter and she’ll certainly love the present.
Everyone loves to sport their name on personal items, so grabbing a personalized item is a perfect gift for any chic businesswoman. If she can’t stay away from her smartphone, getting a monogram phone case as a gift for her will be a perfect decision. This will help grow her brand in a subtle yet classy way. Choose the color, style and letters and you’ll have a perfect present for any occasion. There are other personalized gifts like keyrings, wallets, bags and pouches so you can make a nice little set.
If you know your boss needs to relax and unwind in the office, you can get her something beautiful yet useful like a scented candle. These come in all imaginable sizes, colors and scents, so pick something relaxing like lavender or chamomile to make your boss a little more forgiving. On the other hand, you can get lemon, cinnamon or peppermint to provide your boss with some productivity, focus and better mood. If you can’t have an open flame in your office, grab an essential oil diffuser and you’ll achieve the same results.
These are very practical for both bosses and work colleagues, so find an appropriate subscription box and you’re done with your gift picking. From teas and wine to books and makeup, you can find many great subscription boxes today that will surprise her once a month or once in two months. You can tailor your box according to your wishes or you can pick a random assortment of products. If she likes the subscription, she can continue paying for new boxes, so you’ll help her create a whole new habit. With these, every month is Christmas!
If your boss is constantly on the road, a luggage locator will help her know the exact location of her luggage once she lands or embarks. It sincs up with smartphones and can be turned off during flights so it’s TSA friendly!
With these gifts, you’ll not only pleasantly surprise your boss but also not break your bank. Even though very affordable, these gifts are thoughtful and practical and will definitely not go unnoticed.
