During the holiday season, finding the right gift for your boss can seem like the biggest challenge. While you know you won’t actually get fired if you get a present they don’t like, it certainly feels like it.
Getting your boss a personalized gift will undoubtedly put you in good graces with them, especially at the last minute. No pressure, but you’ll find it hard to develop something that’s personalized, thoughtful, and impressive at the last minute.
However, it can be done by listening to what your boss says they need and doing your research. If you want to give your boss something they’ll actually use, a desk frame will probably end up getting re-gifted. Get a gift that is in line with their interests or is applicable.
Additionally, you should have it monogrammed for brownie points. There’s nothing more personalized than having someone’s initials etched into something, so find the time to order your boss a present and then have it monogrammed. Make sure you know your boss’s initials. Here are a few monogrammable gifts to impress your boss this holiday season:
1. Personalized cutting board
Despite most adults having cutting boards, these boards usually have lots of carving marks and food stains. A chic upgrade like this will undoubtedly be appreciated.
2. Personalized whiskey glass
You can give your boss a personalized whiskey glass as a gift to add to their bar cart if they love whiskey.
3. Personalized golf ball display case
They’ll love seeing their initials along with a display set of golf balls if your boss is a golf enthusiast. The decor and function go hand in hand.
4. Personalized phone case
I believe that one can never have enough phone cases – they are always getting cracked or dirty. Consider getting your boss a personalized and festive case for the holidays.
5. Personalized oven mitts
No matter if your boss is a passionate cook or simply has a kitchen, they’ll likely appreciate having their initials embroidered on a pair of oven mitts. It’s thoughtful and classy.
6. Plaid scarf
You can never have too many plaid scarves during the holiday season, and your boss will appreciate a scarf with their initials monogrammed to avoid scarf mix-ups.
