When it comes to expressing appreciation on Boss’s Day
, make your effort sincere and personal to make an impact. This is especially true when it comes to Boss’s Day gifts. Use these three tips to find a gift that will express your appreciation and earn you brownie points in the office.
1. Plan in Advance. Boss’s Day takes place annually on October 16, so there’s no reason not to be prepared! Will your Boss’s Day gift express your careful selection of a gift that made you think of your boss, or that you picked up something at the gas station on your way to work? A hasty choice will tell your boss you didn’t put any thought into the gift. This not only makes you look poor, but it doesn’t make your boss feel appreciated either. Circle October 16 on your calendar and look early for a great Boss’s Day gift.
2. Research Personal Gift Ideas. In order to choose Boss’s Day gifts that are personal and meaningful to your boss, you’ll have to know what she likes. In the weeks leading up to Boss’s Day, pay careful attention to her mention of hobbies, favorite snacks, or special interests. You can research your boss’s interests on her Facebook profile or Pinterest page. Don’t hesitate to do some face-to-face investigation, too. Talk to one of your boss’s close colleagues if you’re struggling to come up with ideas.
3. Write a Personal Note.
Express your sincere appreciation on Boss’s Day by writing a personal note for your boss. Boss’s Day cards are common, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a card that’s a good fit for your boss. If all else fails, you can write your note in one of our free ePraise ecards
