Boss's Day Gift Ideas

Mark your calendars for Monday,
October 16, 2017 to celebrate Bosses Day.

Patricia Haroski, a secretary from Deerfield, Illinois, originated National Boss Day in 1958 in honor of her white-collar father, who helped all of his children with good advice throughout their careers.

In honor of the elder Haroski's birthday - October 16 - daughter Patricia registered the day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Four years later, National Boss Day was backed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner who officially proclaimed the day in 1962. The idea quickly gained favor across the country and is now even observed in England, Australia and South Africa.

Today, National Boss Day (or Bosses Day) always falls on October 16 and is traditionally celebrated with greeting cards, e-cards, flowers, gifts, and a few extra smiles in honor of the big Boss Man or Lady.

This year, mark your calendars for Monday, October 16, 2017 for the official day to honor your boss on Bosses Day!

What to get the boss on Boss's Day

One word might describe a gift for the boss on Bosses Day - awkward. Make it less so by asking their admin or secretary about their likes and dislikes. Keep it light, and if your boss has a good sense of humor, make it funny. But not TOO funny.

And if in doubt, always err on the side of inexpensive. A lavish gift may prove embarassing for the boss, and will probably earn you a reputation as a "suck-up" with your colleagues.
