National Boss’s Day is coming up. Do you know what you’re getting your boss this year?
Every year, October 16 is set aside for expressing gratitude to our managers and bosses. The holiday was established in 1962 in the U.S. and it’s grown in popularity ever since — some businesses have even expanded it to “National Boss’s Week.” It’s an opportunity for workers to show appreciation to their bosses, and the holiday helps to foster improved employer-employee relations.
If you have a great manager or boss, why not take the time to show your gratitude? Flowers are a wonderful way to show respect and gratitude. Here are some flower gift-giving ideas for National Boss’s Day:
As National Boss’s Day draws closer, autumn colors are in high gear. An autumn bouquet or arrangement can be a fun, seasonal way to celebrate National Boss’s Day. Flowers like sunflowers, daisies and asters in autumn colors exude autumn radiance; however, just about any flower in bright gold, orange or autumn red tones can work. A Change of Seasons bouquet brings autumn bounty with sunflowers, marigolds, hydrangea, roses, and rover mums. Sunset Classic exudes country charm with an abundance of autumn blooms and colors.
The Elegant Lily
If your boss has really gone above and beyond this year, lilies are the flower to send. Their stately grace and beauty exudes class. Consider sending a Lily of the Valley plant or the Peace Lily to promote a feeling of calm and good energy around the office.
Plants and Dish Gardens
If flowers don’t feel quite right but you think your boss could use some greenery around the office, a green plant or dish garden is the way to go. A Lucky Bamboo plant can help improve the feng shui at your workplace, and a Simple Dish Garden offers a simple but beautiful grouping of green plants.
The Beauty of Orchids
Orchids bring a unique, special beauty to any room or flower arrangement. The orchid symbolizes power, integrity and wisdom. A purple phalaenopsis Exotic Orchid is beautiful, hardy and easy to care for; Fall Orchid Splendor offers a variety of orchids in different colors.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who actually has a boss you like, National Boss’s Day is a great day to show your appreciation. If you don’t get along with your boss, you can also use it as an opportunity to “extend an olive branch.” Flowers show thoughtfulness and care and will let your boss know they are appreciated and respected.
