Welcome to GiftTree’s 20th Anniversary Blog Series: 20 Ways to Elevate Your Gift Giving. At GiftTree, we delight in taking ordinary gifting moments and transforming them into extraordinary ones. When a special occasion arises, giving a gift that doesn’t understate the sentiment is the cornerstone of gift-giving. Whether the gift-giving be professional or personal, throughout this series, we intend to focus in on what makes a good gifting moment great, as well as how you can learn to select the perfect gift for any milestone or cause for celebration.
Today we’re focusing our attention on giving gifts to the boss! This can be kind of tricky situation – a gift that’s really over-the-top can make it look like you’re trying to win favor, and a gift that understates the special occasion might come across that you haven’t taken the time to get to know the person that your boss really is. (And guess what, surprise! Your boss is a person, just like you!) The first step to finding a great gift for your boss (or anyone, really) is considering who they really are. Remember this solid rule: the best gift is one that is tailored to the recipient. So think about what your boss is interested in, and where they find joy! This should help you begin to narrow down your gift giving ideas. Here are some appropriate gifts to give to the boss on a special occasion.
