Shopping for a great gift for your bestie or your mom one of those things that can completely stop you in your tracks—but picking the best gifts for boss? That’s a whole other ball game.
Our Top Picks:
You might have a great relationship with the nicest and most understanding manager in the world, but picking out the perfect gift is still a delicate dance. No matter the holiday—Christmas, their birthday, or National Boss’s Day (October 16 this year, you’re welcome)—the best boss gift is thoughtful but not too personal. Generous, but not over the top.
With that in mind, you really can’t go wrong with something that recognizes the boss lady (or man’s) interests—like a gilded candle snuffer for a candle lover. Of course, a busy bee like your boss might also appreciate a small beauty Advent calendar, tech gift, or a cozy present to help them rest and recharge. Personalized gifts from Amazon—like a monogrammed notepad—will also deliver.
To help you gather gift ideas you can feel really solid—and not at all stressed—about, we scoured popular retailers to curate the ultimate gift guide that honors every type of boss, from coffee lovers and foodies to creatives and homebodies. So scoop up one of these unique gifts and save that gift card for another day.
