What Gift Should I Give to My Boss on Their Birthday?
Giving gifts to your boss on their birthday is a kind gesture that they will appreciate. However, it is important to be mindful of the rules surrounding gift-giving in your workplace.
Should I Give My Boss a Gift on Their Birthday?
Giving gifts to your boss is something that shouldn’t feel forced. When you genuinely care for your boss, you can consider giving them a gift in addition to a birthday card.
But before deciding on giving gifts to your boss for their birthday, there are some things you need to consider.
Ask yourself about the kind of relationship you have with your boss. Are you in a small company or department under his direct supervision and you frequently talk to them about matters outside of work? Then buying them a gift on their birthday can be considered okay. However, if you only talk to your boss during meetings, then it may not be necessary to give them a personal gift though you might want to consider contributing to a group gift.
You should also review company policies regarding gift-giving before you proceed. The policy will spell out who is allowed to receive gifts, under what circumstances, and what kind of gifts are appropriate.
If no clear-cut policies exist, you can use the guide below when giving gifts.
- Find a gift that is not too expensive or too cheap.
Giving a very expensive gift to your boss might be construed as seeking special favor or treatment so avoid this as much as possible. On the other hand, if you buy a cheap gift, it might appear that you haven’t given it careful thought, and might negatively impact your image. If you are on a very tight budget, you might be better off foregoing giving your boss a gift and sticking to writing a birthday card instead.
- Consider their interests and personality
Find a gift that fits their personality or is in line with their interests. For instance, if your boss loves coffee then a specialty coffee might be a nice gift. Does your boss have a great sense of humor? Then you may get away with a funny gift like a mug or desk sign with a funny inscription on it.
- Organize a combined gift with colleagues
If you are finding it hard to think of a personal gift for your boss or you are on a very tight budget, consider organizing a combined gift with your colleagues. But remember not to pressure anyone into giving a contribution.
