gifts for woman

What to give the boss?

Pre­sent­ing a good gift is not an easy task, because it must be appro­pri­ate and pleas­ant for the recip­i­ent. Even close peo­ple can find it dif­fi­cult to choose the right present. With the author­i­ties, the sit­u­a­tion is even more seri­ous. Nonethe­less some dates can­not be ignored, because a gift from the team shows respect and atten­tion to the leader. Let’s fig­ure out what you can give the boss.

What should be taken into account?

Choos­ing a gift for a female direc­tor is a respon­si­ble event. This issue should be approached seri­ous­ly, you can’t just buy the first thing that comes to mind. First of all, it is impor­tant not to for­get that your boss is a woman. There­fore, you need to try to main­tain bal­ance on a fine line, tak­ing into account both the sta­tus and gen­der of the recip­i­ent of the present. When choos­ing, you should con­sid­er sev­er­al basic nuances.

  • The age of the female leader. This fac­tor will help nar­row down a wide range of ideas. For exam­ple, a young boss is unlike­ly to like a too con­ser­v­a­tive present. If your boss is a woman of mature age, on the con­trary, you should avoid cre­ative and humor­ous gifts. Also, know­ing the exact age will help in case of the direc­tor’s birth­day. Anniver­sary gifts should be espe­cial­ly thought­ful and mem­o­rable.
  • Com­pa­ny size. If you work for a small firm, you can choose some­thing mod­est but taste­ful for your boss. Offi­cial­i­ty is not so impor­tant here, cre­ative ideas are accept­able. A large com­pa­ny oblig­es to present a dis­creet but expen­sive item.
  • Boss hob­bies. If you know about the leader’s favorite activ­i­ties, you can real­ly please her with some­thing relat­ed to these inter­ests. If you know absolute­ly noth­ing about the per­son­al life of the boss, it is bet­ter not to guess, but to choose some­thing neu­tral.

Anoth­er impor­tant point is the pack­ag­ing. Do not choose bright col­ors or fun pat­terns for dec­o­ra­tion. It is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to con­cise col­ors (brown, bur­gundy, dark blue, dark pur­ple) and pas­tel shades. Also, gold­en pack­ag­ing is always appro­pri­ate, which will empha­size the sta­tus of the recip­i­ent.

Original gifts

A beau­ti­ful liv­ing plant in an ele­gant pot will appeal to those who seek to make the office space more com­fort­able. In this case, you will be able to com­bine prac­ti­cal­i­ty (the plant puri­fies the air) with sin­cer­i­ty (such a green dec­o­ra­tion will dai­ly remind you of the team’s atten­tion to its supe­ri­ors).

Flo­rar­i­um is anoth­er option for land­scap­ing an office. Exot­ic plants in an orig­i­nal vase in the form of a sphere or a cube will sure­ly appeal to a young woman hold­ing a high posi­tion. The idea is orig­i­nal, fresh and mod­ern.

A com­pact aquar­i­um with a fish is an excel­lent rem­e­dy for stress, which is full of a sol­id posi­tion. Hov­er, the choice of such a gift should be approached with cau­tion. Although the care of such a “pet” is min­i­mal, it is still a big respon­si­bil­i­ty com­pared to the same plants. It is not known whether the boss will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to feed the fish dai­ly, because man­age­ment is often asso­ci­at­ed with trav­el­ing. Of course, the sec­re­tary can do this, but this is also not always con­ve­nient.

There­fore, before mak­ing a deci­sion, you should care­ful­ly con­sid­er the appro­pri­ate­ness of such a gift.

mini foun­tain. This present is per­fect. Beau­ty and pre­sentabil­i­ty are com­bined with func­tion­al­i­ty here, because this is a kind of air humid­i­fi­er. At the same time, the item per­forms a dec­o­ra­tive func­tion and does not require any main­te­nance. A good gift is an expen­sive tea pair.

Just don’t buy prints. Images of flors and cute draw­ings are not entire­ly appro­pri­ate here. Styl­ish plain prod­ucts with an exquis­ite gold­en or sil­ver pat­tern are pre­ferred.

You can also buy good green or black tea (if the man­age­ment com­pa­ny is its con­nois­seur). Qual­i­ty cof­fee will please the one who loves this invig­o­rat­ing drink. Here it is impor­tant to know about the tastes of the boss. beau­ti­ful vase — also a uni­ver­sal option. On hol­i­days, women are usu­al­ly giv­en flors. There­fore, a styl­ish vase in the office will nev­er be super­flu­ous.

Donat­ed from the team cas­ket per­forms 2 func­tions. You can put jel­ry or some use­ful lit­tle things in it. It can also dec­o­rate the dress­ing table. Of course, such a gift is intend­ed for the home, not for the office. The box can be made from any mate­r­i­al, but it does­n’t have to be cheap. Here, refined design and impec­ca­ble qual­i­ty are deci­sive.

Flash card. It is dif­fi­cult to imag­ine the mod­ern life of a busi­ness per­son with­out a com­put­er. A young female boss can appre­ci­ate a flash dri­ve with an orig­i­nal design.

The main thing is to remem­ber that you are choos­ing a present not for a girl­friend, but for a boss. There­fore, it is bet­ter to avoid too fun­ny and cre­ative options. Let it be a cute but styl­ish thing.

Strict busi­ness acces­sories are not exact­ly what a per­son expects to receive in hon­or of the hol­i­day. But if you don’t know your leader very ll and are afraid to make a mis­take in choos­ing, you can buy it in a spe­cial­ized store sta­tus, but ele­gant diary. Of course, such an item must be sup­ple­ment­ed with a lux­u­ri­ous bou­quet.

Anoth­er option — ll-known high-end brand pen. Let it be beau­ti­ful, with an inter­est­ing design. Since the recip­i­ent of the gift is a woman, you can opt not for a lacon­ic black or blue ver­sion, but for a prod­uct in a del­i­cate pas­tel tone with gold details.

Cool and unusual ideas

If your com­pa­ny is small and has a friend­ly atmos­phere, and rela­tions with man­age­ment are not very for­mal, you can show imag­i­na­tion (with­in rea­son, of course). Can be giv­en to the boss tal­is­man stone prod­uct, whose name can be rec­og­nized by date of birth. It could also be some a fig­urine sym­bol­iz­ing, for exam­ple, suc­cess and finan­cial ll-being. An inter­est­ing option is the “tree of hap­pi­ness”.

A cer­tifi­cate for vis­it­ing the SPA-salon will be appre­ci­at­ed by any woman. Relax­ing mas­sage and care pro­ce­dures not only ben­e­fit the appear­ance, but also allow you to relax, get dis­tract­ed from busi­ness. Per­fume shop cer­tifi­cate also will not fail. If you don’t need to give the per­fumes them­selves to the leader, then you can present the cer­tifi­cate com­plete­ly.

This will hint that you see in the boss not only a per­son hold­ing a man­age­r­i­al posi­tion, but also a woman. And also this will allow the gift­ed per­son to choose the aro­ma to their lik­ing.

Ser­vices for cre­at­ing por­traits from a pho­to today offer many artists. Pic­tures are made in dif­fer­ent tech­niques. Choose a good spe­cial­ist, do not for­get to look at his port­fo­lio. The work must be done pro­fes­sion­al­ly.

And if you know for sure that the boss prefers activ­i­ty and adven­ture, you can offer her some­thing extreme. For exam­ple, a lot of impres­sions will give bal­loon flight.

If your boss com­mu­ni­cates with sub­or­di­nates in a sim­ple way, you can sur­prise her with your cre­ativ­i­ty. For exam­ple, you can do it your­self in a graph­ics edi­tor a play­ful diplo­ma or present a cer­tifi­cate for 1 hour of over­time work of the entire team.

Nat­u­ral­ly, this should not be the main gift. Humor is just an appli­ca­tion that cre­ates an atmos­phere of a relaxed hol­i­day.

Budget options

If you don’t have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to buy an expen­sive item for your boss, you can choose some­thing mod­est but pleas­ant. Inte­ri­or items and pleas­ant lit­tle things that make the office of a female direc­tor more com­fort­able are a good option. It could be an anti-stress pen­du­lum, an ele­gant wall clock, a minia­ture air humid­i­fi­er or some­thing else.

In some cas­es, you can lim­it your­self to one col­or (for exam­ple, on the day of March 8). A ll-com­posed bou­quet can per­fect­ly com­ple­ment any main present. If you know what flors your boss prefers, choose them. If this nuance is a secret for the team, you can stop at ros­es. This is the clas­sic ver­sion.

If the rela­tion­ship with the boss is not strict­ly for­mal, and on her birth­day she is at home, you can sur­prise her and use the deliv­ery ser­vice to her home address. Such a pleas­ant sur­prise will remain in the mem­o­ry of any woman for a long time.

Con­sid­ered by many to be the best gift book. Hov­er, in this case it is also worth know­ing about the tastes of the per­son for whom you are choos­ing a lit­er­ary mas­ter­piece. Oth­er­wise, your present will only cause bewil­der­ment in the recip­i­ent and will sim­ply gath­er dust on the shelf. Romance nov­els, cook­books and oth­er options for wom­en’s top­ics are out of place here. It can be clas­sic or some kind of edu­ca­tion­al lit­er­a­ture (but only if your boss is real­ly inter­est­ed in it).

It should be not­ed that although the cost of the pre­sen­ta­tion should not be too high (no more than the amount of the month­ly salary of the aver­age employ­ee), too cheap option would also be a bad idea.

If you can­not raise the amount to buy a wor­thy present, it is bet­ter to lim­it your­self to an expen­sive bou­quet.

What should not be given?

Try­ing to please your leader, it is impor­tant not to “go too far”. With a care­less­ly cho­sen gift, you can spoil the mood or even offend a per­son. Let’s fig­ure out what to give in no case can not be.

  • Office tools. This is not the best gift for a woman, even if she holds a high posi­tion. As men­tioned above, in extreme cas­es, it is per­mis­si­ble to present a lux­u­ri­ous diary or an expen­sive pen for the hol­i­day. Hov­er, they should not be too bor­ing and look like men’s. Keep this in mind when choos­ing col­ors and design items. If you buy a busi­ness card hold­er in brown or black, even if it is expen­sive, it will make a neg­a­tive impres­sion. A flash dri­ve should also not be ordi­nary, but ele­gant and beau­ti­ful.
  • Jel­ry. A beau­ti­ful gold watch or gem­stone bracelet from a ll-known brand is a lux­u­ri­ous gift. Hov­er, in this sit­u­a­tion it may seem like a bribe.

Espe­cial­ly if the gift is not from the whole team, but from a spe­cif­ic per­son or a sep­a­rate group of employ­ees.

  • Per­son­al items. Remem­ber sub­or­di­na­tion. Even if you have a warm rela­tion­ship with the man­age­ment, you should not present items for the hol­i­days that only close peo­ple can give. These are cos­met­ics, per­fumes, wardrobe items (includ­ing scarves, gloves), acces­sories (glass­es, bags), house­hold items (slip­pers, tols, bath acces­sories). Of course, you should not even think about buy­ing under­ar.

  • Kitchen tools. A set of pots or pans pre­sent­ed to a female direc­tor on the day of the hol­i­day can be per­ceived as an insult or ridicule. House­hold appli­ances (microwave, food proces­sor, slow cook­er, etc.) are also not the best option. You can­not know if a woman needs this tech­nique. Per­haps she already has a sim­i­lar device at home. And some busi­ness women do not cook at all and pre­fer to eat in restau­rants.

Such things can also be clas­si­fied as per­son­al, domes­tic. Don’t for­get that the recip­i­ent is your boss first and fore­most.

  • Alco­hol. Male boss­es are often giv­en elite alco­hol for the hol­i­days. But in the case of a woman, this is inap­pro­pri­ate. Even if it is not cognac, but expen­sive dry wine or cham­pagne, the present is unlike­ly to please your boss.

  • A mem­ber­ship to a fit­ness club or a vis­it to a beau­ty salon. If relax­ation in a mas­sage SPA-salon is asso­ci­at­ed with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to relax after a ek of work, then such a gift can be per­ceived as an insult­ing hint. Every­thing relat­ed to body shap­ing, face and hair treat­ments is unac­cept­able in a busi­ness envi­ron­ment.
