The­mat­ic gifts

What gift to choose for an accountant?

Even the most seri­ous and bal­anced peo­ple will be hap­py with a gift received on the occa­sion. This ful­ly applies to employ­ees of the finan­cial sec­tor. Let’s try to fig­ure out what is bet­ter to present to them, and what should be imme­di­ate­ly aban­doned.

Best Presents


Choos­ing some kind of sur­prise for accoun­tants seems to be quite a dif­fi­cult task, but you can sim­pli­fy things if you first focus on the most com­mon options. These are the things that are direct­ly relat­ed to the pro­fes­sion:

  • flash dri­ves for use at work or at home;
  • fold­ers for doc­u­ments;
  • writ­ing acces­sories;
  • cal­cu­la­tors;
  • note­books and diaries.

With humor

Gifts for accoun­tants with a joke are quite pop­u­lar. It:

  • charms-com­pli­ments;
  • styl­iza­tion for orders and medals;
  • mag­net­ic sculp­tures.

There are also options such as:

  • an impromp­tu order for the “Best Accoun­tant”;
  • gift cer­tifi­cates;
  • t‑shirts and mugs with the inscrip­tions “The best accoun­tant in the world” or some­thing like that;
  • award “The most respon­si­ble financier”;
  • awards “Gold­en Accoun­tant”, “For dili­gence and tal­ent”, “For loy­al­ty to the orga­ni­za­tion”, “For the gen­eros­i­ty of the soul” and so on — there are sim­ply an incred­i­ble num­ber of options.


There are a lot of orig­i­nal gifts for account­ing work­ers. So, on New Year’s hol­i­days it is quite appro­pri­ate to give lamps or night­lights in the form of a flor or a bou­quet. For com­fort in the wor­welace, you can hand over warm blan­kets. But it is impor­tant to under­stand that such a gift is appro­pri­ate only for real­ly close peo­ple. From unfa­mil­iar col­leagues, he will look defi­ant and even ridicu­lous.

If you have no idea what gift to pre­fer, you can take a clos­er look at a pig­gy bank that looks like a safe opened by a code. Such a gift is not too mas­sive, it will def­i­nite­ly cause sur­prise. It is guar­an­teed to empha­size the idea of ​​pros­per­i­ty and mate­r­i­al suc­cess. It is use­ful to take a clos­er look at busi­ness card clas­si­fiers. In the “house­hold” of any office work­er, soon­er or lat­er dozens and even hun­dreds of them accu­mu­late - order­ing is indis­pens­able!

Talk about gifts of a per­son­al nature is invari­ably del­i­cate. Employ­ees, even imme­di­ate col­leagues, should be giv­en them only if they have excel­lent knowl­edge of:

  • inter­ests;
  • pri­or­i­ties;
  • hob­by;
  • cat­e­gor­i­cal antipathies of gift­ed peo­ple.

Some­times the line beten per­son­al and gen­er­al gifts is very con­di­tion­al. So, a mug can be hand­ed over by col­leagues, as ll as per­son­al­ized wal­lets and key rings. But it is bet­ter not to buy clothes, shoes, cos­met­ics and per­fumes. It is rather a pri­or­i­ty of close peo­ple. It is fool­ish to give socks and jel­ry to a per­son who is unfa­mil­iar or famil­iar only super­fi­cial­ly at work.

Selection Guide

Of course, you can give the chief accoun­tant a vari­ety of things. They choose prac­ti­cal items or just sou­venirs, some­times even just a sym­bol­ic one.

The main thing is that this or that sur­prise should be done with a soul, and not just as a kind of “depar­ture of a room”.

Account­ing is a seri­ous pro­fes­sion, hov­er, the sim­ple human approach is all the more impor­tant. For the New Year, as ll as for a birth­day, espe­cial­ly for an anniver­sary, it is appro­pri­ate to pur­chase cakes. To make a hint at a spe­cif­ic per­son, to indi­vid­u­al­ize the set will help:

  • spe­cial inscrip­tions;
  • orna­ments in the form of accounts;
  • cal­cu­la­tor draw­ing and so on.

Often they buy elite sets of sets, choco­late in the orig­i­nal design (say, a ball). A good idea for any hol­i­day would be the pre­sen­ta­tion of a bou­quet, espe­cial­ly if it is accom­pa­nied by a recita­tion of orig­i­nal poems.

A non-stan­dard sur­prise for the chief accoun­tant is a con­grat­u­la­to­ry news­pa­per in a sin­gle copy. Some com­pa­nies offer such “pub­li­ca­tions” styl­ized as bygone decades. Impor­tant: such a sur­prise is not use­ful to all peo­ple, here you need to feel the psy­chol­o­gy sub­tly.

An attrac­tive choice could be diary. Any account­ing employ­ee lives exact­ly accord­ing to a strict plan. It is eas­i­er to draw it up, mon­i­tor the imple­men­ta­tion of the sched­ule, and make adjust­ments if you have a diary. You can look at the ther­mal glass. The drinks poured there remain hot or just warm for a long time, there­fore it is eas­i­er to main­tain the rhythm of work.

And anoth­er option is a pen with a built-in flash card. But such prod­ucts are found more and more often, it is unlike­ly that they will sur­prise any­one. There­fore, you can pur­chase a mem­o­ry card of the usu­al type, albeit the most capa­cious one — the thing will def­i­nite­ly come in handy. Accoun­tants can also eval­u­ate oth­er elec­tron­ic gad­gets.

When choos­ing, it is worth con­sid­er­ing the col­or and geo­met­ric pref­er­ences of the addressee. A spe­cial engrav­ing will help to make the stor­age medi­um more orig­i­nal.

To warm up in the cold sea­son will allow the desk­top biofire­place. It is used not only at home, but also at work. Indeed, often the cen­tral heat­ing does not work in ear­ly autumn or late spring, when it is quite cold. Ther­moses, cups and mugs will help keep warm with drinks. In the main work, sta­tionery sets of the orig­i­nal design will come in handy, the main thing is that they be made with a humor­ous effect.

If the accoun­tant is in charge, only first-class gifts should be giv­en to him.

For exam­ple, if you buy flors, then only in large quan­ti­ties. If they give sets, then only elite hand­made ones. Buy­ing reg­u­lar alco­hol does not make sense. It is nec­es­sary to choose tea from the lead­ing plan­ta­tions, and cof­fee — per­fect­ly roast­ed, from the best blends. The same goes for oth­er cas­es:

  • house­hold appli­ances — pre­mi­um seg­ment;
  • desk­top sets of lead­ing brands;
  • lux­u­ry pens and pen­cil sets;
  • orga­niz­ers and diaries — only in gen­uine leather cov­ers, pro­vid­ed with per­son­al­ized engrav­ing.

By the way, since are talk­ing about hot drinks, should also men­tion cof­fee machines. Cap­sule or built-in option — at the dis­cre­tion of the donor. You just need to find out in advance whether a per­son real­ly likes cof­fee. Many appre­ci­ate tea: in this case, they choose beau­ti­ful, ele­gant teapots. Alter­na­tive­ly, use ser­vices.

The Gifts for Chief Accoun­tant overview includes por banks for gad­gets and sub­scrip­tions to lead­ing trade mag­a­zines. Hov­er, it’s bet­ter to casu­al­ly find out what oth­er cir­cle of hob­bies a per­son has and order a sub­scrip­tion to a spe­cif­ic pub­li­ca­tion. The lists of the best gifts also include orig­i­nal-look­ing vas­es. But here must take into account that there are peo­ple who do not need them. To please the chief accoun­tant for the anniver­sary, the boss will be able to:

  • a tourist vouch­er to warm coun­tries or to a decent sana­to­ri­um, tick­ets for a riv­er cruise;
  • fur coat;
  • lux­u­ry watch­es;
  • lap­top or per­son­al com­put­er;
  • sets for var­i­ous crafts and needle­work (which a per­son is fond of);
  • col­lectible coins.

What is better not to give?

The ques­tion of what not to give to accoun­tants almost com­plete­ly coin­cides with the ques­tion of what can­not be giv­en in prin­ci­ple, espe­cial­ly to a woman. Like all peo­ple, it is unde­sir­able to present some­thing that hints at phys­i­cal, men­tal defects or char­ac­ter traits. It also includes cos­met­ics and per­fumes. Even the clos­est peo­ple make sense to give such gifts with great leg­i­bil­i­ty. The fol­low­ing are under the ban:

  • pills and oth­er means for ight loss;
  • lit­er­a­ture on health and beau­ty;
  • Med­ical equip­ment;
  • room scales;
  • cer­tifi­cates for plas­tic surgery and cos­met­ic pro­ce­dures.

The restric­tions don’t end there. An accoun­tant is a seri­ous pro­fes­sion, there­fore banal “fun­ny” presents, all kinds of fig­urines and toys are obvi­ous­ly unac­cept­able. It would be a very bad idea to give a pet as a gift. The only excep­tion, of course, is when it is asked for or trans­par­ent­ly hint­ed at. When choos­ing bags, clothes or oth­er brand­ed items, even “very sim­i­lar” sub­sti­tutes should be cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly avoid­ed.

If you real­ly want to show your cre­ative abil­i­ties, you can attach to the main gift home­made set cal­cu­la­tor. See the next video for a mas­ter class on how to make it.
