Do you have a male boss that you love (or want to love you)? Boss’ Day is October 16th so get all your coworkers together, pool your money, and grab one of these Boss’ Day gift ideas for him!
Boss’s Day Gift Ideas for Him
Good bosses should be celebrated so if you really love your boss (or really want to suck up) you can give him one of these gifts all on your own. They’d also make great birthday and holiday gift ideas!
Make People Fear You Mug
Getting your boss a mug is a classic Boss’ Day gift idea! Break that tradition and pick up this funny mug for your boss, perfect if has a sense of humor or ruthless demeanor.
Golf Club Pen Holder
Golfing is kind of a classic boss golf time. If he likes to spend weekends (or “meetings”) on the green, gift him this mini golf bag pen holder for his desk.
This t-shirt is perfect for a more casual workplace so he can wear it to work. Yep, that’s most boss’ idea of teamwork alright.
You’re Fired Button
Your boss doesn’t have to be a fan of Donald Trump to have fun with this button on his desk. Now he can pretend to fire people all day long, which is oddly satisfying.
Decision Maker Paperweight
A funny Boss’ Day gift idea for him! For those times where your boss is unsure of what to do with that paperwork sitting on his desk.
World’s Best Boss Mug
This is a great Boss Day gift idea for fans of the Office. On one side it says “World’s Best Boss”, on the other Dundler Mifflin, the fake company from the show.
Keep Your Tears Where They Belong
This is another TV show reference, this time from Parks and Recreation. Ron Swanson is everyone’s favourite tough guy and your boss will probably love this sign sitting on his desk.
Massaging Chair Pad
Being the boss doesn’t just mean bossing people around, it also means putting in long hours and working hard. Give your boss a massaging chair pad so he can relax for once.
Forget inspirational stuff. For Boss’ Day this year, gift your boss this uninspiring flip book. It mocks your traditional motivational imagery with cute animals and messages like “dream small” and “it’s never too late to go back to bed”.
It’s Always Personal Book
Either you have a boss who’s open to learning new things or you want to send a strong hint if you give this book as a Boss’ Day gift for him. Either way, it’s a good read!
Boss Candy Covers
Most bosses aren’t going to complain about getting some candy as a gift. These printable candy wrapper covers are a great way to make a simple gift like chocolate bars a lot more meaningful.
If your boss hangs art in his office (or has an office) this print might be a funny addition to his workspace. TGIF! Get back to work.
Good Luck Finding Better Employees Mug
Sometimes you have to give it to your boss straight. Sure, you guys are sometimes imperfect, but good luck finding someone better, so he better be nice! This would be a great group gift idea.
Emergency Chill Pills
Does your boss have a bit of a temper sometimes? Gift him some emergency chill pills for Boss’ Day so he can take one and calm down when things go wrong. Not sure if they work, but they’re funny!
These notepads will help your boss express how he feels when he chooses the appropriate cartoon while making a note.
Whiskey and Flask Set
Alcohol accessories aren’t always a good idea, but if you know your boss drinks whiskey this can be a great Boss’ Day gift idea for him. Pair with a nice bottle of something smooth.
Desk calendars can be helpful but that doesn’t mean they should be boring. Get him something with a fun daily thing, like this Dilbert one that’s full of office humour.
Your boss is going to be so be stylish going into meetings carrying this leather and canvas portfolio. You can even get it personalized!
Wine Bottle Wrapper
What better gift to give from the team than one with a picture of everyone on it? Well, their picture on a bottle of wine. After all, you’re the reason your boss drinks!
When all else fails, you can just give your boss a card for Boss’ Day. If you do choose to gift a card, make sure it’s one that’s a bit more personal than something at the grocery store. Adding a small gift card is also a nice touch!
Hopefully these Boss’ Day gift ideas for him will help encourage your boss to pay attention to your request for that promotion…
