We all have people in our lives that are difficult to shop for. Whether it’s your mother, dad, step-mother, step-dad, mother-in-law or grandmother, finding a unique present they’re going to actually appreciate is stressful. Instead of spending hours walking around the mall looking at every possible store, shop online for a beautiful gift that shows how much you care.
Did you know that Boss’s Day is only five days away? On this coming Monday CEO’s and executives desk’s all across the country will be filled with gifts of appreciation. Don’t forget to show your thankfulness for your boss with an exceptional gift! Here are some of our favorite flower arrangements that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
Ordering a flower arrangement from your local florist takes the hassle and stress out of searching for a gift. The flowers only take a minute to order and they are delivered right to your boss’s desk! It can’t get anymore convenient than that!
What flowers do you choose?
Now all you have to do is pick out an arrangement. Traditional flowers are always a safe bet. For example this fall-themed arrangement with lilies, sunflowers and roses would be an excellent choice. Ask some of your co-workers if they want to purchase the arrangement together to split the cost.
If you have a close relationship with your boss and happen to know his or her favorite color or birthday, think about ordering a more personalized arrangement. If your boss’s birthday is in November you could order an arrangement with the November birth month flower, chrysanthemum. If your boss loves the color pink, ask your local florist to only include beautiful pink blooms. You could even add a box of chocolates to sweeten the surprise!
Thanking your boss on this holiday is a great way to strengthen your relationship. Everyone loves to receive positive affirmation and to hear that they are doing a good job. Include a simple card message with your flowers that says, “Thank you for being a great boss!” If you have specific examples of a time when your boss was kind or fair, include that in your card message as well.
