A Gift Guide for National Boss Day

If you have a great boss and mentor in your life and want to show them some love – here’s the day to do it!

Nowadays we get to celebrate National cupcake day and National coffee day – so why not celebrate your boss? I have been very lucky to have a few great mentors and leaders in my career that have helped me to shape my outlook on managing people. It is a true honor to be able to positively impact someone’s life and future career as a boss and as a friend. I hope that the people I manage become everything that they want to be and more! (my job is to help them see the ‘and more’ part)

National Boss Day is on Friday, October 16th this year so if you are not prepared, here are a few gift ideas that your boss may appreciate. It doesn’t have to be a large gesture, just a token of appreciation is far beyond anything that they expect.

I have received this mug in the past from my team and I still use it to this day. (below) I’m a lucky lady!


So I am excited to bring you my first ever gift guide – I hope that you find it helpful. (Don’t forget to account for ship time too.) You can also send a card or a text, just make sure to thank those that have helped you get where you are today, boss, mentor, leader or friend.
