Gifts For Your Boss

After everything that 2020's thrown at us, the even-more-premature-than-usual arrival of the holidays isn't as much of a curveball this year. And, getting a head start on our gift-buying initiatives (and inevitable shipping delays) is actually a priority when so many of us are still separated from our families, friends, and even our work crews — this includes The Bosses. Whether you work for one who's worthy of gifting OR are more on the saving-face front, picking the right present for your manager is a delicate dance of looking try-hard but making it easy (aka affordable).

To help, we undertook this usually last-minute gift hunt for you in-advance — including a range of ideas that will ship to their doorstep and cost everything from very little to not a lot and a decent amount (all depending upon how you feel about your particular B-word). Ahead, 19 unique picks intended to wow the good, the bad, and the ugly of bosses — without too much effort on your part. ("World's Best Boss" mugs not included.)
