Gift Boxes for Your Boss from Unique Baskets to Useful Gadgets (2021)

For better or for worse, most of us have a boss. Some of us have a great boss -- the type who leads by example, comes to work all smiles, and crushes it day in and day out. Others have a boss who prefers to crush their spirits. Whether they’re dishing out good days or bad, we’ve rounded up some of the best boss gifts.

What do you get the boss who has everything?

One of the biggest gifting challenges when it comes to bosses is knowing their wants and needs. There's nothing wrong with the standards, like ‘World’s Best Boss’ coffee mugs and generic gift cards, but monthly subscription boxes are inspired gifts that provide the giftees with a unique experience.

Get the competitive advantage you're after by sending everything from robust coffee to start their day off right to succulents for the office, the latest tech gadgets or life-coaching sessions to drop a not-so-subtle hint. Subscription boxes make fun and exciting holiday gifts, birthday gifts or any-day gifts!
