What would you give your boss on his big day? Now this one may sound a bit different, not your typical gift giving routine. It may not be as easy as handing over a wrapped present to a close buddy. He's your boss. At least you expect it to be quite formal and classy. Funny gift ideas? Yes, could be. All for the spirit of fun? Permissible. But don't go overboard. What's hilarious to you he might be offending for him.
No matter what theme or context you're working on, you want a gift that still retains respect above all. So what should you give him? Or sometimes the real question is, do you really want to give him something in the first place? Keep in mind that gift giving is, supposedly, a kind gesture.
On what occasions will you give gifts to your boss anyway? Besides obvious holidays, he's holding an office party -it's his birthday, or perhaps he got promoted (again) and he wants to celebrate (with you). Given that, whatever the reason, as respect and norm it's courtesy to give him something - anything - for his day, even sometimes you honestly don't feel like doing it.
Now if you have an exceptionally great boss you really look up to - like he's been your friend and mentor all these years - gift giving then is so much lighter, but still stressful. Now you have set yourself some standard. You want to give him something special, as your way of expressing admiration and appreciation. But either way, even with good intentions, somehow you want to impress him, too.
If you happen to be thinking of gift ideas - cufflinks are right on the way. Cufflinks make perfect gifts for any boss - all the time - and it goes well for whatever occasion.
How's that? Cufflinks come in so many designs. There are different types of cufflinks too - classics, contemporary, and novelties. And of course, there are the rare and expensive antique and vintage cufflinks. What's great with cufflinks is that you have so many designs to choose from. It's easy as picking out a pair, get it wrapped up and that's it - you're done.
You can also be quite creative and exert extra effort. You're sure to find a great pair of cufflinks for any occasion. If you don't want to think that much, classic cufflinks are your easiest choice. Classic cufflinks go well on almost any attire and any event. You can have it handmade or monogrammed with your boss' initials with custom cufflinks. If you like, you can get him cufflinks that match his type of personality or character. If he's the jolly type, novelty cufflinks would be a good choice. Or career cufflinks perhaps. If you know he likes sports, you can get him sports-oriented cufflinks.
Whether or not you like your boss, cufflinks still are the safest gifts you can give. Best of all, they don't have to be expensive at all.
