schoolteacher2Boss’s Day is coming up quick. In fact, it’s this week so there’s not much time to think of a way to tell your boss just how much you appreciate and respect the work that they do and the guidance they provide. That’s why we are here to help with some flower, plant, and gift ideas that are sure to please.

The Origins and Purpose of Boss’s Day

Boss’s Day began in 1958 and became a national holiday in 1962. Patricia Bays Haroski wanted to create a day that would recognize the hard work that her boss and all other bosses do for their companies and their staff. The reason she picked October 16th was because this was her father’s birthday.dadc1

While October 16th is the day each year it is celebrated, sometimes it is a day close to this date when the 16th falls on a weekend. Either way, this is an ideal time to take your boss to lunch or gift them with something that they like.

Boss’s Day Gift Ideas

Not sure what to get your boss that would be appropriate for them? Here are some suggestions for Boss’s Day from our online gift selection:dadc3

  • Flowers make a nice gift for a female boss. Pick out her favorite flower variety or make a floral arrangement that features her favorite color.
  • If your boss is not keen on flowers, an indoor green plant can be a nice addition for the office or to take home. You might even consider a dish garden or something similar that a boss with a green theme might enjoy.
  • Gift baskets are always a great idea because they can hold so much and be themed to match what your boss likes. Plus, the gift basket is a generous way for the entire department or team to celebrate Boss’s Day. Our online gift collection is divided up into categories to help you find what you are looking for, including gifts for men, gifts for women, fruit baskets, gift baskets, brownies and chocolate.Carithers Roses
