Tips choose the great gifts for your boss

Buying a gift for a boss can be precarious. You don’t want to spend too much and appear to be pining to be the favorite. You don’t want to spend too little and come off as cheap either.

“The best way is to get everyone in the office to buy a gift,” Patricia Rossi, a business etiquette coach, told Business News Daily. “It’s not always possible, but if you can, go in on a gift together.”

Rossi noted to remember not to purchase anything too personal, like perfume or lingerie. “It should go without saying, but I have seen multiple instances of this,” she said.

Thoughtfulness should always be in the forefront of your mind when purchasing gifts, she added.

“Always be kind. It will come back to you,” Rossi said.
