Meaningful AF Gifts To Get Your Boss This Holiday Season

Shopping for the holidays can be super stressful, but it doesn’t always have to be. The reason gift shopping can be stressful is when you don’t know what to get them.  Don’t you wish that getting gifts for your boss and coworkers was as easy as it is for your best friend? Knowing what to get your boss will help with the dread of having to go shopping for someone you feel you need to get a gift for but aren’t sure what to get them. But with these ideas, you’ll be excited to go gift shopping for your boss!

1. Their Interests

Gifts for your boss can be hard; there’s a fine line between getting them something that is meaningful and doesn’t seem like you’re doing it out of obligation but also getting them something appropriate. Jewelry or something too over the top and expensive is typically over the line and inappropriate. But, if you get them a gift based on something they’re interested in, it’s not only something they will like, but it also shows you pay attention to them. If they have a favorite sports team they talk about getting them something to commemorate that team would be a perfect way to show you pay attention to their interests outside of the workplace and shows you care about them, without being weird.

2. Mutual Interests

Even better than something that they are just interested in, getting them something that is a shared interest or hobby creates a connection between the two of you. Whether it’s a shared sports team, a favorite TV show you talk about all the time or even a favorite store. Maybe you read a book that you think they’ll love, letting them have that book would be really meaningful to them. Or maybe you always talk about how much you both love wine, getting customized wine glasses can be something they’ll use all the time but also reaffirm your mutual connection. Something that reminds them of that shared connection is meaningful and a perfect gift for your boss.

3. Gag Gift

If your boss has a good sense of humor a gag gift may be a good option for them. It shows you both can take a joke and will give everyone a good laugh. Obviously, you want to pick something that’s funny but appropriate. Maybe it’s a pair of socks with a coworker’s face on them or a t-shirt that says “my favorite employee gave me this” any boss with a good sense of humor would find this hilarious. They may not wear it, but if they do you know it’s true.

4. Office Supplies

You may always steal your boss’s stapler or use their last paper clip, you can repay them with cute office supplies and a funny note about how you always take them. It’s both practical and personal without being over the top or has you break the bank. You could even get them a matching set of office supplies and nice stationery and notebooks as an extra thank you.

5. World’s Best Boss Mug

This gift is twofold. If your boss has ever seen The Office, which let’s face it, who hasn’t, they’ll love the reference. Even if they haven’t seen The Office, they’ll either love the fact that they got a mug with that description or they’ll find it funny. Being a manager at my own job, all I have ever wanted was this mug. And believe me whoever gets me that mug will be on my good list for a long time.

6. Something They Need

What’s something your boss always comes into work and is missing? Is it a phone charger they’re always borrowing from you, or maybe they’re always running out to get coffee for an added energy boost. Maybe they always lose their keys. Getting them a phone charger, or a small coffee maker or a cute key chain may not seem like much but will mean a lot to your boss. It shows you care about their day to day but also is a simple and inexpensive gift they will be sure to appreciate.

7. Alex and Ani Bracelet

Now, I know I said jewelry is typically a no go for getting your boss, you don’t want to come off as weird. But many of us spend 4o hours or more a week with our bosses, and if you’re like me you may love your boss and want to get them something more meaningful. Alex and Ani bracelets have been widely popular so she’ll probably already know the brand but with so many different selections they make a perfect gift. Getting them one that matches their personality is a perfect way to celebrate the holidays for someone you see every day. Alex and Ani bracelets also have a lot of positive messages and symbols so it’s a good way to start the new year on a high note. Your boss will love the accessory as well as the meaning behind it.

8. Alcohol

As much as you may love your job, every now and then we all need a glass of wine to unwind from the day. Work can be stressful and your boss and coworkers may see you at your worst and most stressed out. They know more than anyone how your day goes and some days we all need something stronger than a Diet Coke. Getting them their favorite drink is a simple way to celebrate the holidays but still show you care. If they love red wine, get them a brand you always talk about what they’ve never tried so after the break you can talk about it. Or get them something they’ve never tried before. If you’re from Kentucky and your boss New York, getting them Bourbon is a great way to have them try something from your home state. A personalized glass or set of nice glasses is a great addition for the boss you want to get a little something more for.
