Okay, this is always a really weird thing to talk about cause I NEVER know what to do for my boss around the holidays. I literally feel like if I got him something, it would be in the trash can as soon as I left the room. Not cause he doesn't care, but I think he just doesn't want "stuff." And according to this, it's actually a BAD idea to get your boss something for Christmas.

"A gift to a boss is not just a gift- it carries a loaded meaning when you pay for a gift for someone who has influence over your career." Apparently, the right thing to "get" them is free- a handwritten note of how they've helped you or influenced you to be a better person or employee.

What are your thoughts on this?
