Buying for the boss? Here’s what to get

It’s everyone’s nightmare – the collection for the boss. The BIG boss.

What can you get someone who already has a top of the range car, fancy watch and more suits that Superman?

It’s a tricky one. If you have a Collection Pot running for the boss, you’ll need some ideas in case you don’t want to transfer the balance and would like to pick something up.

We’ve trawled the internet and asked a range of CEO’s to pick up some good ideas. These work whether your CEO is male or female, tidy or unorganised, traditional or modern.

  1. Luggage tags
  2. Leather goods – wallets, keyrings, toiletry bag
  3. A phone and keys desk caddy
  4. Memo or notebooks
  5. A travel pillow
  6. A potted office plant
  7. Headphones
  8. An alarm clock
  9. Coffee machine and personalised mug
  10. A beautiful box of snack bars for that 4pm blood sugar dip
  11. A flask
  12. Candles – premium branded
  13. Scarf / Gloves
  14. Gadgets
  15. A luxury hamper
  16. Magazine subscription
  17. A food subscription
  18. Restaurant vouchers
  19. Premium toiletries
  20. Craft beers or premium wine

These are just a few ideas that might get you thinking about what they would like. Don’t forget to set enough time for your Collection Pot to accumulate and remind people that donations can be anonymous, which will take the pressure off feeling they have to donate a big amount. As you can see, with a little bit of time, you can find something just perfect for the boss you have.
