What’s the best way to thank your boss?

  1. A gift certificate for a relaxing activity that your boss will enjoy is a great gift. Anything from Spafinders, to a sailing lesson, golf lesson or something else that your boss has been saying that they would like to try. This kind of gesture will show the boss that you pay attention when they talk, and not just when they are giving you a new project to work on.

    1. Great ideas Anne! Giving a gift that inspires relaxation such as sailing lessons is a really creative and original thought. Thanks for sharing.
