Boss’s Day Gift Idea!

Stumped on what to get your boss for Boss’s Day?

National Boss’s Day is observed on October 16th,… or the nearest working day.

This gift idea costs about $20 (plus liquor, in this gift variation) and is sure to be an office hit! 

Disclaimer: this was not my original idea,… but rather a variation of an ingenious idea a fellow pinner on Pinterest had!

The thick 20″x30″ poster board was $5.99 from Party City, I purchased all of the candy from CVS and I used black Sharpie fine point markers I already had at home, for the lettering. I used the fine point Sharpie because I found it easier to draw the lettering in pencil, then write over the pencil with the Sharpie and then thicken up the letters afterwards. 

Hot gluing the candy onto the board only took about 5 minutes… the lettering took the majority of the time… consuming approximately 2 hours.

I left the space at the bottom of the board, for the rest of my team to sign, before we present the gift to our boss. My boss is very fond of Jack… Jack Daniels whiskey LOL… so I signed the name ‘JACK’ (who is not a member of our team), in hopes that he’ll fall victim to my plan of asking… “who’s Jack?”… so we can then present him with the whiskey bottle gift!

With the variety of candy in stores, this gift could be tailored to your boss in so many ways. The possibilities are endless!!

I give this gift idea 4 paws!
