Dear Experts, What's the right thing to get your boss for the holidays? Our company isn't having a holiday party this year because we laid off people, but my boss is still planning to take us out to lunch with his own money. I feel like I should get him something. Any suggestions? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#388 Something fairly inexpensive, thoughtful/useful/fun: gift 2 charity, pic frame, wind-up toy related to business. (@juliaerickson) Q#388 Don't get your boss anything. If you feel you absolutely have to, go for a Christmas card. (@gradversity) Q#388 What does ur boss like? A good book or bottle of nice wine makes a very nice gift. (@DebraWheatman) Q#388 I always give a book w/inscription. Books are luxury nobody spends money on anymore - even bosses! (@jtodonnell) Q#388 Only buy if they deserve it. They know when it's sucking up & when it's genuine. I do a ~$20 gift card.
