Even if you’ve got a great working relationship with your superior(s), gifting is always tricky. You want to give him or her something that shows you’re a valuable team player, but you also want to make it fun. We recommend a couple of different ideas. First up is a VoIP phone system. This system will help the company save money, as most service providers bundle unlimited usage plans under a flat monthly rate, as well as connect the whole organization for conference calls and web-based voicemail.
If the word “boss” is more of a suggestion than an official title and your boss is as much of a friend as an employer, consider giving him or her a karaoke machine. Everyone says they don’t karaoke, but when the microphone calls, few can resist. Even better, bring it to the company holiday party and be prepared to unleash the rock star within.
