One of the bright­est hol­i­days of the year brings us not only pleas­ant sur­pris­es, the aro­ma of tan­ger­ines and a dec­o­rat­ed Christ­mas tree, but also a few wor­ries. It is impor­tant not to for­get about any­one and to give each sig­nif­i­cant per­son some­thing spe­cial. Since some­times spend an unac­cept­ably long time at work, the ques­tion of what to give col­leagues and boss for the New Year is always rel­e­vant.

As a rule, are not very famil­iar with the man­age­ment, and the choice of a present can con­fuse you and your col­leagues. There­fore, have pre­pared a list of gift ideas for the boss for the New Year 2023, among which you can find some­thing inter­est­ing and present from your­self per­son­al­ly or from the team.

Top 25 Best New Year Gift Ideas for Your Boss

It is impor­tant to pre­pare in advance so that before the New Year hol­i­days you do not run cross-coun­try shop­ping. We have sim­pli­fied the task for you and com­piled a list of what you can give your boss for the New Year — with­out triv­ial bot­tles of alco­hol and sets.

1. Desktop humidifier

Pho­to: pixabay.com

A use­ful thing for those who mon­i­tor their health. The mois­tur­iz­er pre­vents dry skin, irri­ta­tion and flak­ing. In addi­tion, it is much eas­i­er to breathe in such air, which is espe­cial­ly notice­able in the office. There are many clas­sic options for humid­i­fiers in stores. But as a gift for the boss for the New Year, you can also find a mini desk­top ver­sion that con­nects to a com­put­er. It is also impor­tant to remem­ber that a humid­i­fi­er is use­ful when it has fresh water in it.

2. Desk writing set

An inter­est­ing and sta­tus thing that will dec­o­rate the wor­welace of the head. When choos­ing a writ­ing set, pay atten­tion to the design. It should be in har­mo­ny with the inte­ri­or of the office. Also, con­sid­er the dimen­sions of the table. On a mas­sive one, a set that is appro­pri­ate in size will look bet­ter.

It will be inter­est­ing if you com­plete the set with a com­pa­ny logo, for exam­ple with a metal­lic stick­er.

3. A glass with a funny engraving

A fun­ny gift, which, nev­er­the­less, can be a pleas­ant sur­prise. Suit­able if you are on the same wave­length with the leader and you know which phrase on the glass he will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate. Here are a few options: “It’s hard to be mod­est when you’re the best”, “I’m a teacher, I need”, “For med­i­c­i­nal pur­pos­es.” In online stores, there are an abun­dance of options for such engrav­ings — you can cer­tain­ly find a suit­able one for the occa­sion.

4. Tea or coffee couple

It is pleas­ant to drink from a beau­ti­ful cup not only at home, but also in the office. As a gift, you can choose a tea or cof­fee pair made of fine porce­lain with an exquis­ite pat­tern or a more durable ver­sion of ceram­ics. It’s great if the design of the cup and saucer will have some mean­ing for the leader. For exam­ple, lovers of art (and in par­tic­u­lar Male­vich) will suit a min­i­mal­is­tic mono­chrome ver­sion, and for a fan of vin­tage, you can buy rare dish­es.

5. Interior painting

A won­der­ful gift that will dec­o­rate the office of the head. You can buy an inte­ri­or paint­ing in a fin­ished ver­sion, or you can make it to order. For exam­ple, present the chef with a repro­duc­tion of his favorite paint­ing or a com­po­si­tion of the paint­ing and the orig­i­nal frame. A trip­tych (a paint­ing divid­ed into three parts) will also look inter­est­ing in an office, espe­cial­ly if the walls are rel­a­tive­ly emp­ty and the size of the room allows you to har­mo­nious­ly place all parts of the pic­ture.

6. Wall clock

It is not advised to give watch­es for per­son­al hol­i­days, but for the New Year, why not. Wall clocks can be made from dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als: plas­tic, wood, a com­bi­na­tion of wood and resin, and many oth­ers. It is bet­ter to choose the size of the clock in pro­por­tion to the size of the cab­i­net: large clocks will look good in a large room. Wall clocks can also become an inter­est­ing accent of the room — then they should stand out from the over­all design.

7. Gift Order

If you plan to present a gift to your boss at a cor­po­rate par­ty, then you can arrange an impromp­tu award. Give the leader a gift order on a rib­bon, list­ing what you are grate­ful to him for. Reward­ing can become an inter­est­ing tra­di­tion for the whole team — in this case, oth­er employ­ees can also pre­pare cer­tifi­cates. But don’t take it too seri­ous­ly, it should be light and humor­ous.

8. Handmade sets

Since child­hood, New Year has been asso­ci­at­ed with ekends, deli­cious food and the aro­ma of tan­ger­ines. There­fore, a New Year’s set of hand­made sets or choco­late with fes­tive fla­vors: pine nee­dles, tan­ger­ine, nuts will be an excel­lent gift. You can also choose the shape of sets to match the hol­i­day. Nut­crack­er, squir­rel, Christ­mas pic­tures on choco­late — cre­ative man­u­fac­tur­ers offer the most amaz­ing options.

9. Game retro console

If your leader’s child­hood fell on the era of Atari game con­soles, then such a “hel­lo from the 90s” can be pre­sent­ed as a gift for the New Year. These con­soles eas­i­ly con­nect to mod­ern TVs and play 8‑bit and 16-bit games. The kit usu­al­ly includes from 300 to 600 games, so you don’t have to buy any­thing in addi­tion to the con­sole.

10. Gift-bound book

Pho­to: pixabay.com

If your boss has a large col­lec­tion of books, then he will be hap­py to replen­ish his library with some beau­ti­ful pub­li­ca­tion. It can be fic­tion, some rare books, auto­bi­o­graph­i­cal albums. You can also buy pub­li­ca­tions in for­eign lan­guages, works in the orig­i­nal. When choos­ing a gift for the boss for the New Year, be guid­ed by the field of activ­i­ty of a per­son, his hob­bies and hob­bies.

11. Good coffee

Pho­to: pixabay.com

The best gift for cof­fee lovers is a new type of cof­fee or a whole set with dif­fer­ent options. Ara­bi­ca is con­sid­ered a uni­ver­sal option for a gift. There are sev­er­al vari­eties to choose from. Or you can donate mix­es with robus­ta. It is best to give cof­fee beans as a gift so that your man­ag­er can choose the grind size him­self, depend­ing on his pref­er­ences.

A good tone is to col­lect all this in a beau­ti­ful gift bas­ket, com­ple­ment­ed by a cof­fee mug or a book about cof­fee.

12. Gift set for making tinctures

Pho­to: Tara Win­stead, pexels.com

A set of sev­er­al tinc­ture bot­tles is usu­al­ly gift-wrapped. At the bot­tom of each bot­tle is a mix­ture of herbs, spices and berries for mak­ing dif­fer­ent drinks. Also includ­ed are usu­al­ly labels for label­ing bot­tles and instruc­tions with recipes. Using the set is quite sim­ple even with­out pri­or prepa­ra­tion.

13. Funny stamp

For those who are on the same wave­length with the lead­er­ship, this idea will come in handy. You can pur­chase a fun­ny stamp for doc­u­ments. For exam­ple, “Fuck! Remake!” or “No good.” If your boss has brand­ed phras­es, then you can make a stamp to order and solemn­ly present it to the head before the New Year hol­i­days.

14. Pen with engraving

A pre­mi­um option that is suit­able for almost any com­pa­ny and any lev­el of rela­tion­ship with the man­age­ment. A beau­ti­ful pen with or with­out a com­mem­o­ra­tive engrav­ing will dec­o­rate the man­ager’s desk and will be a great gift for the New Year.


Hard dri­ve, lunch box and 150+ more Christ­mas gifts for col­leagues

To make the pen uni­ver­sal, it is bet­ter to choose black ink. If more orig­i­nal options are clos­er to you, then you can find a foun­tain pen. But in this case, do not for­get to buy ink in the kit.

15. Diary

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Many man­agers still use note­books and diaries, despite the over­all dig­i­tal­iza­tion. We rec­om­mend tak­ing leather-bound prod­ucts as a gift. It is bet­ter to let the pages be undat­ed so that the diary is more ver­sa­tile. There are also many eco-friend­ly options in online stores, made from recy­clable mate­ri­als, as ll as prod­ucts that come with col­ored pens and even a phone cord.

16. Stones for cooling drinks

Cooling Cubes

Such spe­cial stones replace ice with­out chang­ing the con­sis­ten­cy and con­cen­tra­tion of the drink. They keep the tem­per­a­ture ll, which is why they are often called reusable ice. Sold in a box or case for easy stor­age. Note that high-qual­i­ty stones do not change the aro­ma and taste of the drink.

17. Funny T‑shirt

As an addi­tion to the main gift, you can pur­chase a T‑shirt with a fun­ny pic­ture or a quote. More­over, it will be quite easy to guess with the size. But if in doubt, take a larg­er size — over­sized is still in trend. As for the col­or, a white, beige or black t‑shirt will be uni­ver­sal.

A map of Rus­sia made of wood can dec­o­rate an exec­u­tive’s office and will be an excel­lent replace­ment for a reg­u­lar map in the form of a poster. When choos­ing such a gift, pay atten­tion to the dimen­sions of the card, as ll as the details that are includ­ed in the kit. If there are LEDs, take care in advance of bring­ing elec­tric­i­ty to the desired wall in the boss’s office. And in gen­er­al, if you donate such things, try to pro­vide a turnkey instal­la­tion.

19. Handmade Christmas toy

An aes­thet­ic themed gift. Toys in the form of snowflakes, San­ta Claus, Snow Maid­en, ani­mals, cones and Nut­crack­ers … There are many options for Christ­mas tree dec­o­ra­tions. For exam­ple, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of mod­ern folk crafts pro­duce won­der­ful spec­i­mens of glass, cot­ton, wood­en toys for every taste. When buy­ing a Christ­mas tree toy, pay atten­tion to the pack­ag­ing. The box should be fes­tive and immerse in the New Year’s atmos­phere.

20. Composition of fir branches

Per­haps the best option that many will like and serve as a desk­top dec­o­ra­tion on the eve of the hol­i­day. Fra­grant spruce branch­es at room tem­per­a­ture will reveal their conif­er­ous smell even more strong­ly. Typ­i­cal­ly, such com­po­si­tions are pack­aged in bas­kets, box­es or bowls. They can be sup­ple­ment­ed with small toys and arti­fi­cial snow.

21. Paracord bracelet

A sym­bol­ic gift for trav­el fans, it is also called the sur­vival bracelet. This thing will come in handy when trav­el­ing to the moun­tains, hik­ing, raft­ing.

The bracelet com­bines a lantern, a strong nylon cable, a com­pass, a knife, a whis­tle, a steel. The con­tents may dif­fer depend­ing on the mod­el.

22. Board game

Board game

The clas­sic option is a monop­oly or mafia. If your boss isn’t into board games, this is the most fun place to start. If you know that the man­ag­er likes to spend a cou­ple of hours at the desk­tops, then look for some­thing new or not the most com­mon­place. For exam­ple, detec­tive card games. Each of them is built on a spe­cif­ic plot, the details of which will need to be guessed dur­ing the action.

22. A set of reusable straws for drinks

Eco-friend­ly sou­venirs are now at the peak of pop­u­lar­i­ty. Sort­ing garbage, using recy­clable pack­ag­ing and reduc­ing the use of plas­tic are good habits for nature. The gift will appeal to a per­son who is think­ing about it or is already doing some­thing to min­i­mize harm to the envi­ron­ment. Such a set can be car­ried with you, the straws are easy to wash by hand, since a clean­ing brush is usu­al­ly includ­ed in the kit.

24. Certificate for participation in the quest

Gift Certificate
Pho­to: pixabay.com

On the eve of the big work­ing hol­i­days, a cer­tifi­cate for some fun enter­tain­ment will come in handy. For exam­ple, quest. The point of any game is to get out of the loca­tion with­in a cer­tain time using hints. Such a cer­tifi­cate can be used to play for 3–5 peo­ple. Advance book­ing is required.

25. Decorative pillow

A bud­get gift that will please the head and bring a fes­tive atmos­phere to his office. To do this, you can choose a pil­low with a cov­er in red or, for exam­ple, with a print in the form of New Year’s deer. These pil­lows look great on the win­dowsill if it is used as a relax zone or on the sofa. It is bet­ter to choose a square shape, it fits more advan­ta­geous­ly into any inte­ri­or.

How to choose a gift for the boss for the New Year

Share your rec­om­men­da­tions eti­quette coach Christi­na Tubbritt.

  • If you are a new­bie, the first thing to do is to look into the inter­nal labor reg­u­la­tions or the Code of Con­duct and Ethics and clar­i­fy what the require­ments are in the com­pa­ny. If there is no gift pol­i­cy in the doc­u­ments, check with col­leagues about the gift-giv­ing cul­ture in your orga­ni­za­tion.
  • In col­lec­tives, gifts to the leader should always be on behalf of all sub­or­di­nates. If you need to make a present on your behalf, do it face-to-face.
  • Art. 575 of the Civ­il Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion lim­its the val­ue of a gift to 30 $ for employ­ees of edu­ca­tion, med­ical insti­tu­tions, civ­il ser­vants and beten employ­ees of com­mer­cial orga­ni­za­tions. Be care­ful when choos­ing a gift for col­leagues or boss: such presents should not be extrav­a­gant and expen­sive.

  • Gen­er­al rules of eti­quette also warn against offer­ing per­son­al care prod­ucts and oth­er per­son­al items as a gift.
  • Don’t give prob­lems, give sto­ries. Here, the word “prob­lems” means any­thing that requires addi­tion­al action for the recip­i­ent and / or costs. For exam­ple, if you give flors — then in a bas­ket or water box; if the prod­ucts are those that do not require a refrig­er­a­tor, etc.
  • A gift should always be wrapped.
  • Pre­pare gift ideas ahead of time. Think about the inter­ests and hob­bies of the boss.
  • When choos­ing per­ish­able gifts, which include: flors, food, wine, be sure to con­sid­er your boss’s dietary/religious and aller­gy restric­tions.

Over 150 orig­i­nal ideas for cor­po­rate gifts for the New Year

Popular questions and ansrs

Before the New Year, employ­ees ask them­selves ques­tions about what is appro­pri­ate to give and what will look strange. We ansr the most com­mon of them to help elim­i­nate doubts.

What should not be given to the boss for the New Year?

We do not rec­om­mend giv­ing cos­met­ics or hygiene prod­ucts: these are per­son­al items that are appro­pri­ate to present only to rel­a­tives or close friends. Gifts with alco­hol are best giv­en if you know exact­ly what kind of drinks the chef likes. Cloth­ing (bow ties, ties, tights) is also not the best option.

What can be presented from the team to the boss for the New Year?

A fun option would be to record a video greet­ing to the man­ag­er along with col­leagues. Choose a theme that the chef will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate, select cos­tumes, fun music and con­nect your imag­i­na­tion. The video can be pre­sent­ed at the begin­ning of the cor­po­rate par­ty or sent by e‑mail.

How to pack a gift for the boss for the New Year?

It is not cus­tom­ary to give some­thing with­out pack­ag­ing for any hol­i­day. Espe­cial­ly the boss. An excel­lent option would be to pack the present in paper with a New Year’s print and tie it with a red satin rib­bon. More “every­day” pack­ag­ing is con­sid­ered a hol­i­day pack­age. This option is quite accept­able, but, of course, it will not cause delight.
