The holiday gift-giving season is upon us! It seems like everyone at the office is gearing up for Yuletide celebrations. The office halls have been decked with cheerful decorations, glittery fake snow encrusts the tops of every cubicle wall, and an abundance of red and green stockings have overtaken the typical office décor.
It's a great time of the year for strengthening bonds between members of the office team, for celebrating your team's accomplishments, and for taking a break from the hectic day-to-day routine of the job.
What is the best way to do all of the above, though? At the end of the day, an office party might be a good way to blow off steam, but does that help you create a long-term appreciation for your coworkers?
Besides, this year, you want to do something special for the boss. Whether your boss' retirement is coming up, or you and your coworkers just want to say "thank you" to the person who puts in the extra hours to help everyone else, throwing a cheap little party just doesn't seem like it would be enough. You want to give the boss something to remember you by, something that he or she can take into retirement or proudly display in their office. You want to give the boss a gift that will keep on giving day in and day out for years.
Plaques Make Perfect Gifts
Have you considered giving your boss a feature article plaque? If your company, or better yet, your department has been featured in a major trade publication, you can immortalize your team's achievement and give your boss a gift to be proud of. Why settle for a generic mug that says "World's Greatest Boss" when you can make a plaque that says the same thing, but then provides the proof that can substantiate the claim.
Another thing that makes a featured article plaque a great gift is that it has that personal touch. This gift shows that you put thought and effort into the present and that you truly appreciate your boss' contributions at the office. Plus, this personal quality to the gift will give your boss a reason to remember you and your coworkers fondly for decades as this personal trophy adorns their office or home.
Beyond simply being a great gift for your boss, an article plaque of your company or department's achievements can be a great morale booster for everyone else in the office as well. When your boss proudly displays this plaque in the office, everyone can share in the sense of accomplishment that comes from knowing that your work was newsworthy and meaningful. Every member of your team was a part of that success, and having a reminder of that can be a great pick-me-up for someone in the office on a dreary day.
Also, unlike the cheap office party which will be forgotten within a week, these plaques are built to last. The article featured in your plaque is sealed inside to protect it from the elements and the ravages of time. This means that your featured article will be kept looking like new for decades without becoming cracked, yellowed, or torn like it would be without the protection of the plaque. These plaques are durable designs that can weather the passage of time, as well as the occasional stray cup of office coffee.
Plus, an In The News article plaque is professionally arranged and engraved to give it the elegant appearance that will fit in both at the office and in the boss' trophy cabinet at home. With a selection of both traditional wood finishes and sleek, modern crystalline acrylic plaques, you can create the perfect, long-lasting gift that will be appreciated for decades to come.
Get the boss a gift that will make sure that they remember you this year with their very own In The News article plaque that shows them why they're the "World's Greatest Boss" and how you were a part of that success today.
