Gifts for the New Year

What to give the boss for the New Year?

In our life there are peo­ple who are not our rel­a­tives, but ll-being, good mood and oth­er joys of life depend on them. You need to be able to give gifts to supe­ri­ors on var­i­ous occa­sions. It should be con­sid­ered in more detail what to give the boss for the New Year, what orig­i­nal gifts can be pre­sent­ed to the male direc­tor from the team, as ll as sym­bol­ic New Year’s presents to the leader.

Original gifts

Choos­ing a gift for a dear CEO is rec­om­mend­ed with a fair amount of dis­cre­tion. It is impor­tant in this mat­ter to main­tain a sense of tact and at the same time offi­cial sub­or­di­na­tion.

A gift should evoke pos­i­tive emo­tions — joy, pleas­ant sur­prise, maybe even admi­ra­tion, but not anger, annoy­ance and irri­ta­tion.

If you give your boss for the New Year, for exam­ple, a mourn­ing wreath dec­o­rat­ed with fes­tive rib­bons, you can instant­ly lose your job, be left with­out a liveli­hood. When choos­ing a gift for a boss, regard­less of gen­der, it is rec­om­mend­ed to pay atten­tion to the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria:

  • age;
  • hob­by;
  • addic­tions or “human akness­es”;
  • tem­pera­ment and sense of humour.

If this infor­ma­tion is miss­ing, then it is bet­ter to give some­thing neu­tral, work-relat­ed, such as a Park­er pen or a nice brief­case made of Indone­sian mon­i­tor lizard leather. Uni­ver­sal and inex­pen­sive gifts can be the fol­low­ing:

  • paint­ing by Aiva­zovsky (copy);
  • orig­i­nal table lamp, which no one has;
  • car­pet with the image of north­ern lights.

The cre­ative direc­tor of an adver­tis­ing agency is bet­ter off giv­ing some­thing unusu­al, such as a free sub­scrip­tion (for two) for ten bungee jumps in the park. Hav­ing jumped with a beloved woman from 50 meters upside down, the direc­tor can pret­ty shake him­self up and strength­en fam­i­ly ties. It is pos­si­ble that his wife will leave him over­whelmed with neg­a­tive emo­tions. Then there may be prob­lems for the one who pre­sent­ed such an unusu­al gift.

Under a strict ban, there should be such gifts that evoke the fol­low­ing emo­tions:

  • sar­cas­tic smile;
  • feel­ing ambigu­ous or embar­rassed;
  • vio­la­tion of sub­or­di­na­tion and eti­quette.

You can’t give a boss tam­pons from a “good French com­pa­ny”, and a male head of a school an inno­v­a­tive mod­el of a Mar­ta doll from a sex shop. Such “jokes” end with an entry in the queue at the labor exchange.

A mis­take in choos­ing a gift can be a dead­ly trick for a young employ­ee’s career.

Instead of the head of the sales depart­ment, it is real­is­tic to become a jan­i­tor of near­by yards in a short time. In a few months, dis­missal will fol­low under a plau­si­ble pre­text: due to staff reduc­tions.

A good gift is a flash dri­ve cov­ered with rhine­stones (if the boss is female). A beau­ti­ful set of bath brooms and oth­er sim­i­lar acces­sories is suit­able if the boss likes to take a steam bath with friends in a good sauna. A bot­tle of five-star cognac or Chivas Regal whiskey is a uni­ver­sal gift that is appro­pri­ate to present under any cir­cum­stances. A gift will be orig­i­nal — a ll-made trav­el bag-bar, in which you can place the fol­low­ing items:

  • bot­tles;
  • wine glass­es;
  • a stack of favorite mag­a­zines;
  • box of cig­ars.

A rock gar­den is a good present, espe­cial­ly for those who are fond of yoga. Var­i­ous vas­es, cups, ves­sels, on which good wish­es and a por­trait of the boss will be applied, will not be the last gift if you are inter­est­ed in dec­o­rat­ing it.

Giv­ing your boss kitchen uten­sils or appli­ances is not a good idea.

Most like­ly, she has every­thing she needs, and such an “orig­i­nal gift” will be stored on the mez­za­nine. Some­thing sim­i­lar can be said about dish­es, pans and pots.

An orig­i­nal large dish, on which a por­trait of the boss will flaunt, sur­round­ed by the whole team — this idea seems to be pro­duc­tive if the thing is packed in fes­tive pack­ag­ing and pre­sent­ed accord­ing­ly. Not a bad idea to present the lamp. Now in fash­ion are sim­i­lar light­ing devices that are made in 3D. A gift cer­tifi­cate from a beau­ty salon or beau­ty store can soft­en the hard heart of a female boss. It is advis­able to pack such a good thing in an appro­pri­ate way so that it is clear that this is a wor­thy gift.

Cooked cook­ies can be called an orig­i­nal gift for the boss, on which there will be var­i­ous wish­es or even good humor­ous pre­dic­tions.

All women like inte­ri­or dec­o­ra­tions, you can come up with some­thing orig­i­nal from this theme.

A poem that is writ­ten in a play­ful way can be rephrased in a kind and seri­ous over­tone that will look quite decent. You can order a large per­son­al cal­en­dar in a mini-print­ing house, where you can place a pho­to of the boss, the entire team (if it is not too numer­ous), var­i­ous wish­es of employ­ees and asso­ciates. The sim­plest and most orig­i­nal gift is a mug with the inscrip­tion “Best Boss”.

Every per­son after 40 years old has some kind of hob­by, if you find out this “secret infor­ma­tion”, then for rel­a­tive­ly lit­tle mon­ey you can present a real­ly “expen­sive” gift.

The Monop­oly game is a com­mon gift, it does­n’t seem unusu­al. But the orig­i­nal chess, which is carved by a crafts­man accord­ing to the author’s project, can real­ly be a “roy­al present”. The cost will most like­ly be low. A wide-for­mat book writ­ten on lux­u­ri­ous paper, with a good tex­tured cov­er, col­or­ful engrav­ings will look unusu­al.

A bra­zier and a set of cus­tom-made skers are also a good gift that can be use­ful in the warm sea­son and will last a long time. An orig­i­nal gift can be called a set of vinyl records with love romances and a 1972 Dnepr play­er. Such a gift is inex­pen­sive, you can find it on the Inter­net. Lis­ten­ing to romances on the full moon on the coun­try veran­da is quite an excit­ing expe­ri­ence.

A young spe­cial­ist who rel­a­tive­ly recent­ly “joined” the team after grad­u­at­ing from a uni­ver­si­ty does not know the full infor­ma­tion about his employ­ees and boss­es. It can be dif­fi­cult for him to make an orig­i­nal gift for his supe­ri­ors for the New Year or Feb­ru­ary 23. In this case, it is best to present some­thing “busi­ness” and func­tion­al. These may include gifts such as:

  • a beau­ti­ful ball­point pen with an 8 GB flash dri­ve;
  • a note­book with an orig­i­nal cov­er made of good leather;
  • a diary engraved with the chief’s ini­tials;
  • desk­top set for the office;
  • cus­tom-made busi­ness card;
  • col­or­ful cal­en­dar.

The auto­mo­tive theme opens up a wide vari­ety. In this case, gifts such as:

  • mugs;
  • a small vac­u­um clean­er for clean­ing the inte­ri­or;
  • on the Inter­net you can find a large num­ber of hours for cars;
  • foot pump;
  • video recorder with a gift inscrip­tion.

Gifts can be from the “for the soul” genre, these include the fol­low­ing:

  • the face of a beloved boss, com­posed of many, many tooth­picks or match­es, able to pleas­ant­ly sur­prise any leader;
  • elec­tric gui­tar with fuzz effect and ampli­fi­er, on which the emblem of the com­pa­ny will flaunt;
  • cus­tom-made in the design work­shop cup “Best Boss in the Uni­verse”, while the mate­r­i­al may be dif­fer­ent, fin­ish — from brass to sil­ver; on the sur­face of such a prod­uct there should be the name and patronymic of the head, his pho­to and best wish­es in busi­ness and health pro­mo­tion;
  • a set of glass­es with ded­i­ca­to­ry inscrip­tions and best wish­es; such a gift is quite orig­i­nal, at the same time it is uni­ver­sal, as it is suit­able for all occa­sions;
  • var­i­ous sou­venirs, that are present in huge quan­ti­ties at flea mar­kets and fairs where hand­i­crafts are sold.

You can present fun­ny gifts in which the name and patronymic of the boss will be present. Among them are the fol­low­ing:

  • per­son­al­ized pens or cut­lery in a box;
  • a set of cig­ars;
  • bot­tle of expen­sive whiskey in the orig­i­nal box engraved with the ini­tials of the leader;
  • hon­ey in orig­i­nal jarswhich are in a dec­o­ra­tive bag;
  • pan­elwhich can be hung in the recep­tion room or office.

Symbolic gifts

A sym­bol­ic gift for the boss for the New Year from sub­or­di­nates can be cus­tom-made Christ­mas tree toys. They will include pho­tos of employ­ees. You can think of some­thing else on this top­ic. For exam­ple, bake a deli­cious per­son­al­ized cake or buy choco­lates and wrap them in wrap­pers dec­o­rat­ed with a pho­to­graph of the boss. For the New Year, you can order toys with fla­vors in the form of orange slices or orig­i­nal choco­late fig­urines.

Impor­tant! The biggest mis­take is hand­ing over mon­ey. This can become a start­ing tick­et for dis­missal with­out expla­na­tion in the near future.

Sym­bol­ic gifts include an orig­i­nal ball­point pen, which is inex­pen­sive, but looks unusu­al (it can be sup­ple­ment­ed with a per­son­al­ized inscrip­tion). A bar of soap of an unusu­al shape, packed in a beau­ti­ful wrap­per, is also quite an inex­pen­sive and mem­o­rable gift. In recent years, a head mas­sager is often pre­sent­ed as a gift. It allows you to relax and relieve stress in a short time, with­out resort­ing to med­i­cines, while the whole fam­i­ly can use it. You can donate com­put­er acces­sories, such as a mouse, a key­board with a per­son­al­ized inscrip­tion, a head­set or head­phones, a mouse pad.

It is quite appro­pri­ate from sym­bol­ic gifts to look like a per­son­al­ized mug of the orig­i­nal form. Such devices are sold at fairs on Sun­days, where you can always find some­thing suit­able. Sym­bol­ic gifts from the team include a dec­o­ra­tive chan­de­lier, an orig­i­nal lighter or ash­tray, a set of tools.

Inex­pen­sive gifts have their own charm, mod­esty always dec­o­rates, does not cause envy among col­leagues.

Expen­sive gift offer­ings can be mis­in­ter­pret­ed by a cre­ative team of like-mind­ed peo­ple and asso­ciates.

On New Year’s Eve, you can give the boss Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions for the Christ­mas tree, for exam­ple, hand-made glass balls with var­i­ous pat­terns and inscrip­tions. A gin­ger­bread house is often giv­en for Christ­mas and New Year, because it looks unusu­al and beau­ti­ful. Orig­i­nal can­dles with can­dle­sticks are inex­pen­sive, but cre­ate high spir­its. A cham­pagne bas­ket (or even a dec­o­ra­tive buck­et) for stor­ing cham­pagne would also make a great gift. You can give the boss a warm blan­ket or pon­cho. This gift is use­ful and quite orig­i­nal, espe­cial­ly if it hap­pens on New Year’s Eve.

A non-drink­ing boss can be pre­sent­ed with a lux­u­ri­ous set of bil­liard cues. If he is a pas­sion­ate pool play­er, he will appre­ci­ate these things. When choos­ing such a gift, you should under­stand a lit­tle about bil­liards in order to under­stand which cues are good and which are not. Oth­er­wise, it is easy to get into a mess and present “fire­wood in a wrap­per.” The same can be said about ten­nis rack­ets. Avid ten­nis play­ers know first­hand what the advan­tages of such sports acces­sories are.

Homemade souvenir ideas

You can buy a set of teas for the boss in a spe­cial­ized store and arrange them in cas­kets, which you can first cut and glue from ply­wood with your own hands. You can give the boss a beau­ti­ful mohair scarf or sater that was knit­ted by your beloved grand­moth­er. Such a gift can only cause grat­i­tude. The carved jel­ry box will def­i­nite­ly be a pleas­ant sur­prise for the boss. On the board, you can cut out a por­trait of your favorite boss using a spe­cial tool. If you have such skills, then you will def­i­nite­ly get a beau­ti­ful pic­ture. It should be addi­tion­al­ly cov­ered with dry­ing oil and var­nish before deliv­ery.

Fes­tive pack­ag­ing plays a big role. The more col­or­ful it is (with­in lim­its of ade­qua­cy), the bet­ter. You can order the pack­ag­ing sep­a­rate­ly in a spe­cial­ized store or use the Inter­net. Today there is a huge selec­tion. What can not be done is to give things of per­son­al and inti­mate hygiene. Some­times one such gift is enough to suc­cess­ful­ly end a career.

Budget options

A gift to your favorite leader does not have to be super expen­sive, espe­cial­ly when the salary is low.

Expen­sive gifts can be afford­ed by the direc­tor of a branch of a cor­po­ra­tion or one of the co-founders, since the lev­el of fees and bonus­es they have is much high­er. A mod­est office work­er must make do with “lit­tle blood”, so inge­nu­ity, fan­ta­sy and imag­i­na­tion can become effec­tive helpers. It is worth con­sid­er­ing bud­get options.

  • small cac­ti from the store in pots can be a lcome gift. Among these plants there are spec­i­mens of the orig­i­nal form that live quite a long time, while they require min­i­mal care.
  • The same can be said about the muraya plant. — a minia­ture tree native to South Amer­i­ca. Muraya is not only beau­ti­ful, but its fruits are also use­ful, because they con­tain many vit­a­mins. Muraya costs rel­a­tive­ly cheap­ly, and will live for a long time.
  • table foun­tain for a ner­vous employ­er can help him calm his nerves. The mea­sured mur­mur of water in the office paci­fies the psy­che, pres­sure is restored, the heart works more rhyth­mi­cal­ly.
  • Minia­ture wall mount­ed ather sta­tion can be a very use­ful gift, and it also looks like a dec­o­ra­tion. The same can be said about the barom­e­ter. Many of these prod­ucts have the orig­i­nal case.
  • Cer­tifi­cate for the sale of var­i­ous acces­sories, appli­ances, gar­den tools or win­ter things. There are a lot of such coupons today. They can be pur­chased online.
  • If the boss or boss has small chil­dren, then cer­tifi­cate for vis­it­ing the chil­dren’s enter­tain­ment cen­ter or a dol­phi­nar­i­um can be the best gift.
  • col­or­ful albumin which the achieve­ments of com­pa­nies and employ­ees are present. If every­thing is prop­er­ly arranged and done beau­ti­ful­ly, then such a “doc­u­ment” can become a source of pride for the boss. In it, you can write how the com­pa­ny was formed, how a friend­ly team was formed, what dif­fi­cul­ties re over­come dur­ing the pas­sage of the “glo­ri­ous path”.
  • Good cheese with noble mold (like Dor Blue) and a bot­tle of Bur­gundy wine from France — this can be a classy and styl­ish gift that looks decent if it is prop­er­ly pack­aged and pre­sent­ed.
  • If your boss is rest­ing, spend­ing hol­i­days in dif­fer­ent parts of the world in the most severe regions of Antarc­ti­ca, Novaya Zemlya, Kam­chat­ka, then you can give some alpen­stock or hatch­et. Such a tool will be extreme­ly use­ful on long jour­neys (maybe even save the boss’s life).

Impor­tant! It is worth observ­ing the lim­its that are cer­tain­ly present in every team.

Sub­or­di­na­tion must always remain. If every­thing is done with intel­li­gence and a good sense of humor, then it can turn out to be a very good gift for the boss for the New Year.
