Boss's Day, 16th October 2009

The History of Boss’s Day

Boss's Day (also known as Bosses Day or National Boss Day) is a secular holiday celebrated on 16th October. It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their boss for being kind and fair throughout the year. The origin of Bosses Day dates back to 1958. Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois, registered it with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Haroski chose the date because it was her father's birthday. Who was her boss? .... her father. Four years later in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the day.

National Boss's Day has become an international celebration in recent years and now is observed in countries such as Australia, England and South Africa.

What To Do on Boss’s Day

Boss's Day is an opportunity for you to thank your boss for being a mentor and leader throughout the year. Now here is a day that gives you a chance to both tell and show the boss what you really think of him or her, and to give your boss the appreciation that he or she truly deserves. You can do many things to make Boss’s Day a good thing in your office! This is a time to set aside petty conflicts and invest in your future by taking care of your boss. After all, Boss’s Day only comes around once a year.

How long you've worked together and how well you know each other will play into your gift-giving decision. If you want to play it safe, a modest food gift basket is a great choice. If you know your boss enjoys a good cuppa coffee then a gift hamper such as our The Coffee Addict is a good idea. If you know that your boss enjoys wine, a wine gift hamper containing a good quality wine as our The Boss's Choice, will be a very welcome gift. Are they mad about chocolate? Our The Chocoholic hamper should really please them.

It's a tough job to find a good gift for your boss. But help has arrived!
