Thank your bosses on Boss’ Day!
Bosses Day is celebrated on October 16th in the United States and Canada. It’s a great day to let your boss know how much you appreciate them. You may want to buy them a small gift yourself, or perhaps join your coworkers in celebrating your boss all together!
Boss Day Gift Etiquette General Guidelines
1. Buy something that matches their personality and/or lifestyle. Think about their interests and activities.
2. The gift probably should be relatively inexpensive. You don’t want to give the boss the wrong message.
3. The gift should be professional. No grooming or beauty related products. Good ideas are: Food, Gift Cards, Books, Sports Related Items, Funny Gag Gifts (this depends)
