Best Gifts To Send Your Boss Before Appraisals


    Now that we have your attention, no, please don't send your bosses anything during appraisals. Do it any other time of the year, instead. You wouldn't wanna look like a suck-up now, would you?

    Choosing the right kind of gift for your boss can be... well, tricky. You don't want to seem too eager to please but also convey your respect and appreciation. So, yes. It can be pretty intimidating. But it doesn't have to be if you know exactly what to get them and what would look appropriate. Nothing too exorbitant yet classy enough. 

    To help, we've rounded up a bunch of gifts you can get for every kind of boss. Disclaimer: these won't land you in any trouble. Promise.
