Choosing a gift for your superior can be a nerve -wracking experience; after all, you want to show them that you appreciate their guidance, but you don’t want to be too informal or over familiar. These gifts should be thoughtful, but not overly personal. Unless you know them very well and have a close personal relationship, it can be really difficult to choose something appropriate to put under the office Christmas tree.
Thankfully, we have done the guess work for you. Here are our favourite gifts to give to a boss, supervisor or manager this year.
- A gourmet gift hamper – Whether you are shopping at Borough Market, Fortnum and Mason or M&S, gift hampers are available at all price points. Perhaps you would like to make the gift a little more personalised? You can always purchase a basket and fill it with posh goodies that you buy on sale or from discount retailers such as Lidl. It’s nice to include wine, seasonal sweets, gourmet oils and vinegars, delectable nuts and even some cured meats.
- A spa or massage voucher – Whether your boss is male or female, a few hours of rest and relaxation at a local spa will be well appreciated. Consider choosing a Wahanda voucher, and this will allow your recipient to choose the service they want at the location of their choosing, all at a deep discount.
- A personalised photo crystal – If you work for a small start up or for a large corporation, chances are that your company means a lot to your manager. Have your company’s logo laser engraved into a 3D crystal ornament that your boss will cherish and will look fantastic on their desk.
- A quarterly gin membership – This one is for the gin lovers in the house! Sipsmith sends custom boxes of four gins out to its members every three months, allowing sippers to sample a myriad of unique craft spirits all year long.
