If you work for yourself, you know the boss is a demanding jerk. This also occasionally happens when you work for someone else. Both situations have their pros and cons—you don’t have to clear anything with anybody vs. letting someone else hold all of the responsibility, for example—so it really comes down to what works best for you.
Good bosses lead from the front, setting policies, identifying goals, and sharing strategies. Effective bosses hire talented people and get out of their way. We won’t list the things that make for a bad boss, because that’s depressing.
October 16 is Bosses Day, so if you have a great boss, give them some thanks. If you are the boss, treat yourself. We have suggestions!
1. Captain of Industry
If your boss is a leader in your field, we probably have a mug for that profession.
2. Outside Interests
Does your boss have a hobby? Search for it from our home page.
3. Business Class
If your boss is constantly traveling to meetings and conferences, help them get their caffeine on the go.
4. High End
For the tea and infusion drinkers. Or coffee. Or whatever. This mug looks classy on the desk.
5. Your Majesty
If your boss is king of the conference room, present his Highness with a special mug.
These are just a few suggestions for good gifts for the boss. You can always use the search tools on our home page to find the perfect mug. If you really want to butter them up, get a couple of mugs. U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping, and every boss out there loves saving money.
