A birthday present for a boss is a responsible matter and is not always easy to find and choose, especially when it comes to selecting a truly worthy present for a leader. If you find a gift for a colleague in the office is quite simple, because of the equal situation with him, then picking up an exclusive gift for the boss is not an easy task.
In most cases, the gift to the leader is bought either by the whole team or departments. Buying a gift for the head of the entire department is an excellent option for those who do not want to take full responsibility for choosing a gift and spend a lot of money. Unfortunately, even a collective gift can be quite expensive if you work in a small enterprise.
As a gift to the boss, it is best to choose some kind of art object – for example, a large picture in a solid frame. Very often, works of art are the best and win-win choice for large bosses who need special attention to themselves. Making such a gift should be entrusted to people who understand what they are doing, having extensive experience and good recommendations.
Our studio Art Studio BRAND HISTORY, in 2011, completely independently developed and manufactures the Commemorative Silver Medal “City of Saratov”. This, in its way, is a unique gift item, we make to order, piece by piece, in single copies, for our customers who decide to congratulate their leader in a special, memorable way.
If you decide to give a gift individually, and you have a limited budget, then most likely stop at the proven option – elite alcohol, oriental sweets, good coffee or tea. It is worth noting that such gifts should be quite expensive, and not purchased for 1000 rubles at the nearest supermarket five minutes before delivery.
Alcohol and various types of tea can be found in specialized shops, and sweets will be made in the pastry shops according to your wishes. As a rule, for men choose stronger, and for women – weak drinks like wine or champagne. When choosing such a gift, it is especially important to know the tastes of the chef: perhaps he prefers only one specific brand of cognac or does not tolerate milk chocolate.
A good option would be the so-called “office” gifts. This is the name of the presentations that find their application in the ordinary life of the company – a notebook covered with leather, expensive writing accessories, a leather briefcase, wall or hourglass, thematic posters. The latter should be chosen based solely on the design of the office of the boss and the aesthetic preferences of your leader.
You can also give a collector’s edition of the book in a beautiful binding – it will not only help brighten up a few boring evenings, but will also become a decoration of the office. Many present a houseplant as a gift, especially to female leaders, but before you do this, you need to ask how much such a present is desired. The plant requires constant care, very often – specific, and not everyone will like the need to devote time and money to it.
If your leader is a woman, the task of finding a suitable gift is complicated, because getting lost in the world of cosmetics, perfumes and jewelry is very simple. As a rule, you need to give cosmetics and perfumes only if you know for sure that she uses them or will use them. Very often, even the expensive products of world brands are not suitable for this or that woman due to skin characteristics or personal preferences. In this case, it is better to seek advice from female colleagues who have a more trusting relationship with her and discuss such topics.
Very often women are presented with jewelry, but when choosing such a gift, again, you need to know the tastes of the person presented. Watch what jewelry she wears – metal, stones, design features, and pick similar ones. If in doubt, choose things with a simpler design. As a rule, women leaders are given pendants, brooches, bracelets and chains; rings are a rather intimate gift and are presented only to beloved man or close family members.
When choosing a gift for the boss, you can resort to tricks and find out about his hobby. For example, if he is fond of fishing, you can give him a good spinning, hunting – a hunting knife or a flask, and if your boss is an avid theatergoer, present him with a couple of tickets for a famous production. The main thing is to be sure that your boss does not have just such an instance of a knife, spinning, binoculars.
Such a choice will show that you were responsible for choosing a gift for this person, and, of course, will arrange a leader for you. If your boss is a fairly loyal person with modern outlooks on life, give him a funny gift.
