the girlboss gift guide



Selecting the right gift for your boss can be tricky. You want to show that you value her without being too personal. The following gifts work great because they can each be utilized within the office setting, and are therefore always appropriate — except for one. You’ll have to decide if a massage gift certificate is the right thing for your supervisor or if it is better to stick with a day planner. ūüôā

Any successful exec knows that a huge key to success is gratitude. What better way to help your boss say her thank you’s than with this¬†classy stationary from Rifle Paper? You’ll come to mind every time she writes a thank you note. ūüôā


Another key to success is organization. After using a digital calendar for a year, I discovered that I simply MUST have something on paper to look at in order to organize my thoughts. Somehow, my schedule and goals get imprinted on my brain this way! Do the same for your boss with this cute Kate Spade agenda.

Organization can be a boring task, however. These fun geometric file folders from Paper Source make it a delightful experience. No glam boss will be truly happy with plain manila folders, you know?
