Easy Gifts That Will Wow Your Boss

Christmas is a week away with the New Year following shortly after — and who's the last name standing on our gift lists? The boss. Whether you work for one who's worthy of gifting or are more on the just need-to-save-face front, picking the right present is a delicate dance of looking try-hard but making it easy. Since it's so last minute and holiday-shopping tanks are running on empty, we went ahead and did the heavy gift-idea lifting for you.

Scroll on to shop our top affordable-unique picks intended to wow the good, the bad, and the ugly of bosses — without too much effort on your part. ("World's Best Boss" mugs not included.)
