What should I do? Read Description

Ok, if you have read my questions I have been sick and annoying for the last two weeks. My boss gave me permission to leave the country on a short notice and she also let me go home when I was sick for the last two days. In other words, she is a pretty awesome boss. What is something that I can do for her, besides hard work, to show her that I appreciate all the things that she does for me. Is very rare to have an amazing boss these days. Any ideas? Nothing too weird, like no flowers or candy, she is my boss, not my girlfriend. Thanks!

hahaha. Ok.....(thinking) that is not a bad idea. I could get her two tickets, one for her and one for her husband. There is a lot of natural thermal pools and spas in the wine country near where I live. There are not pricy neither and this will force her to take a break from work. THANKS.

Maybe just a thanks? Maybe a mug, or something simple. When you get back tell her she's and awesome boss, and you really appreciate it!

well you could always go chiche and send a cheesy card with a gift card or something. Or something convenient for her home or something you might have noticed she needs. Just don't buy her an ugly vase.

You could write her up a nice card and place it on her desk telling her how much you appreciate her for being such an amazing boss(: and give her chocolate with it(:

Find out her favorite store and give her a gift card? I think the best way though is to casually just ask her. The key word is casually. Offer to take her out somewhere. Casually, of course.

thanks, but I don't want her to get the wrong impression. I am a huge flirt and I don't know how to ask casually. lol, besides my girlfriend would murder me.

Oh! So you have a girlfriend? Let your girlfriend help you then! I'm assuming your boss is a girl, correct?
Report as
yep. My girlfriend is an opera singer and she said that she can get me tickets to her next opera in California, but that won't be until winter. She didn't give me any more ideas but she also said "Don't get your boss sick with the flu or whatever you have. I am sure she would appreciate that better than any gift." LOL

Haha! I agree with her! But still try to stay simple with your gift! :)

I like the cup idea.
Report as
I think this is the right idea. Simple, appropriate, not too much or over the top.
Report as
yeah, I don't want to freak her out. Or to think that I am sucking up to her. I just want to say thank you.
