Boss's Day - Unique & Personal Gift ideas
 
October 16th has been known as National Boss's Day since 1958. The holiday started with one employee who wanted to find a way to make up for forgetting her father's birthday, which had fallen on that same day. Her father, incidentally, was her boss at the State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois where she was a secretary. In 1962, the Governor of Illinois proclaimed the holiday for Patricia Bays Haroski, making it a national holiday. It is now celebrated internationally and is observed in countries around the world.

This secular holiday is one of many that has often been criticized and mocked as a Hallmark Holiday, but in fact has an actual history of the appreciation of those who are in charge in the workplace. If you've got a boss that needs some appreciation, here are some great ways to celebrate and let them know that you appreciate all that they do.

  • Heartfelt cards, letters, and emails are good choices if you truly want to make an impression. If you have appreciation that you feel is worthy of sharing, this is the way to go. A simple card or letter can go a long way in letting your boss know how you feel.

  • How about a homemade card? This will offer even more sentiment than one that you can buy, and you can customize it to say whatever you want it to say. You can include inside jokes that go around the workplace, personalized information, and more.

  • If you're more of a lighthearted sort, consider gag gifts or funny presents. If your boss has a sense of humor that is bigger than his or her sentimental side, this might be a better option. Getting funny t-shirts, mugs, or other gifts that are less than serious can often show appreciation without being overly emotional or seeming 'sappy'.

  • Get the gang together and do a portrait of the boss. You can each do your part to create the perfect picture of the person in charge, and then everyone can sign the portrait when it's completed. This is great because it shows that you care enough to invest your personal time and thought into the gift.

It doesn't matter what you choose to do or how you get your point across. The only thing that matters is that October 16th is National Boss's Day, and you need to let your boss know how much you appreciate them. Having respect and appreciation in the workplace can make it a much more harmonious place to be. So get out there, get a card, send a letter, or go get a funny gift that reminds you of the person in charge. Give it to them on the 16th, and let them know just how much you care.
