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.)
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
