Thank you for being a wonderful manager! Thank you for your guidance and care over the past year. Have a happy holiday season! For the best manager there could be, your leadership was both inspiring to behold and instrumental in leading the team to achieve the company’s goals.
According to reference verification firm Allison & Taylor, it’s definitely a good idea to send your boss (and his or her boss) a proper holiday greeting. It’s an important way to send the message that you value your relationship with the company and respect these people as individuals.
< li>There is no better place for the holidays than at home, but since you can’t be with us…
< li>It’s a real pleasure doing business with you.
Thank you for trusting me. I am sure you will be happy with the results. I wanted to let you know how much having you as my boss has meant to me during my time here. Your guidance and support have helped me achieve my professional goals and for that I am forever grateful.
< li>Thank you for helping me with (a specific task) today.
Gifts from an Individual
A $50 to $100 gift certificate is appropriate for those with higher incomes; Less is “cheap” and more is not necessary. If you are buying or giving a gift, the value of the gift should not exceed $150.00.
The rules of business etiquette do not require you or any employee to give your boss a gift for any occasion. In fact, giving a gift when it’s not necessary can seem like you’re trying to buy into your boss’s good graces. And if you give your boss an inappropriate gift, your boss might feel uncomfortable.
It’s a thing some people do, but ideally they wouldn’t do. Etiquette states that gifts at work should flow down, not up (meaning your boss can give you a gift, but employees shouldn’t be expected to give gifts to their bosses). This rule exists because of the power dynamics in the boss-employee relationship.
I wish you a holiday full of fun and laughter and best wishes for a prosperous New Year. Warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. With much love. I wish you a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
