17 Gifts Your Boss Will Love

Courtesy of Brands

So many of us love shopping for other people more than we like shopping for ourselves — except when the recipient is difficult to shop for. What do you get that person who already has everything or that friend who you know is super picky? Here's another tough one: what do you get your boss? Whether it's their birthday, a holiday, or Boss's Day, I've got 17 gifts your boss will love that will make your shopping trip so much easier.

Shopping for your boss is so challenging because you want to strike a delicate balance between professional and personal. You want to get them something practical but thoughtful. You want the gift to say, "Hey, thanks for being the best boss in the world, even though I hate you sometimes." An easy task to conquer? I think not.

You don't want to screw this up. Your boss is already kind of annoyed because they know it was really you who broke the fax machine even though you lied about it. (Honestly, you did them a favor. Who even sends faxes anymore?) Put a smile on their face and hopefully a bigger holiday bonus on your desk with one of these 17 gifts.
