Surviving in the business world is not an easy task — even more so when you’re just a millennial who has no idea what to do. The most difficult thing is to choose a gift for boss And you have probably seen many people sucking up to their boss, and it isn’t a very pleasant view. I get it though, we all have our pride — we can all be achievers based solely on our skills. But sooner or later, you will realize that hard work and talent aren’t the only things that matter. But here’s the truth, at most times, your boss is just a person very similar to you. Although I do agree with the opinion that there are bosses who don’t seem human, they really are. Some build a rough exterior so they can lead teams easier, and others don’t really like being in the position at all.
Whatever it may be, establishing a good connection to your superior can benefit you in more ways than one. It will create a fantastic atmosphere, and you will be quick to realize that your boss can also be a very good friend. If you try to put yourself in their shoes, you will even find out why your boss behaves in a certain way. So to be on amazing terms with your superior, there are some things you can do.
Everybody Likes Gifts
And I really mean it — every single person in this world loves gifts. It is in our nature to appreciate surprises and gestures of affection. So now that we’ve established that your boss is just a person as you are, we can also agree that they love receiving gifts.
However, getting a gift for your boss can be very tricky. You don’t want to be over the line and get them something too personal. But on the other hand, you don’t want to give them something impersonal and boring. You might quickly be confused and ask yourself, what’s the silver lining here?
Most importantly, you need to know what your boss likes. What are their favorite sports? Are they into cooking? Do they enjoy a glass of good wine? Or maybe they are technology nerds who love interesting gadgets? Lucky for you, you can find all these things on the Internet for very affordable prices. In case you just started working somewhere, and you seriously want to impress your boss but remain dignified, here are some gift ideas that could help you out.
1. Luggage Locator
Bosses usually travel a lot because they’re busy — and also because they have a salary one can envy. Whatever the reason for their frequent traveling may be, getting them a luggage locator can make them very happy. Your boss can put this in their backpack or luggage and know where their personal things are at all times. Additionally, it is TSA friendly, so it shuts down during the flight. Most importantly, it can sync up with a smartphone via an application it comes with. Buying this gift will cost you only $70, but the look on your boss’ face will be priceless. Your colleagues might hate you though.
2. Flavored Sugar Set
Your boss is probably a heavy coffee addict — it’s something that comes with the stress of workload. And every coffee needs some sweetening — but plain old sugar can get so boring at times. And being a smart employee as you are, you know this, which is why you can buy this gourmet sugar set for your boss. It looks and feels like sugar, only that it comes with different flavors. Not to mention the amazing decorative packaging it comes with. If your boss is a great person, then this will make their working hours even easier. If they’re grumpy all the time, this just might remove all the bitterness off their face. Plus, it costs only $40. Either way, you can’t miss with this gift.
3. Wireless Eye Massager
Now here is a gift that no boss will be able to refuse. Leading teams comes with a lot of headaches and sleepless nights. Offering a massage to your boss could go very wrong, so please don’t do it — regardless of how genuine your intentions may be. Instead of having to physically touch your boss, you can get them a wireless eye massager. Your boss will be very happy with that headache gone, and it just might help with their eye bags as well. Your boss will end up looking relaxed and feeling relaxed, and you get to be the favorite kid in class for only $130. It’s a win-win situation!
4. LCD eWriter
This is for all the bosses who are really into gadgets. Although you might deem it useless, this eWriter has helped a lot of people. Does your boss brainstorm a lot? Is their table crammed with paper and post-it notes? Believe it or not, your boss is probably pissed off by this. They didn’t get to this position by being unorganized and chaotic. Since this probably irks your superior, getting them an LCD eWriter can only make them happy. All their ideas will be stored in one place, and they get the traditional feeling of pen and paper. It’s the best of both worlds. Not to mention how it will make you look smart and considerate. It might cost $130, but it is definitely worth it.
5. Parlor Ice Cream Making Set
So your boss has a sweet tooth, you say? Don’t worry — sugar addicts are the easiest people to make friends with — just buy them candy! However, if you teach a man how to fish, he will never be hungry. So instead of endlessly buying candy for your boss, why not get them an ice cream maker instead? Not only will you make your boss happy, but their family will grow to love you as well. This ice cream making set comes with a cold stone on which they can add different ingredients and flavors. The cold stone will prevent ice cream from melting and keep the taste intact. If you get this for your boss, their wife or husband will make sure you get promoted — and nobody says no to a partner.
How Does That Promotion Feel?
Am I already hearing the sound of a firm handshake? Are those a couple of more digits on your bank account that I’m seeing?
All joke aside, getting a gift for your boss can help you a lot. You will make friends with them, and you’ll be able to communicate in a humane and polite kind of way. And yes, you probably will get promoted at some point. One thing leads to another — such is the power of being a considerate human being.
