The idea of National Boss Day originated in 1958, when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce. She chose October 16 as an homage to her father’s birthday, and her goal was to show appreciation for her boss at State Farm Insurance Company. She also imagined that the day could serve to enhance the relationship between employees and supervisors. In 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner officially proclaimed the day, which has grown in popularity and is observed not only in the United States, but also in Australia, India, and South Africa.
At Bagoy’s Florist & Home, we believe that anyone who is a great leader deserves a little recognition. So for the encouragers, the promoters, and those who make our workplace a fun place to be, we say thank you! If you want to thank your great boss for all they do, we are here to help.
Just as your boss works hard to make something beautiful and productive out of many people, our Green Globe succeeds in taking green plants, rocks, shells, and other natural elements and combining them into a perfect environment. Ideal for their desk, or to adorn the front office, this is a gift sure to let them know you appreciate them.
Make it Special: Consider taking up a collection around your office or business, so that you can buy a single gift for your great boss. The fact that it comes from the entire team they helped to build will be especially meaningful.
Another gift that is sure to add beauty and refinement to an office – and is great for corporate environments – is Tropical Breeze, shown below. The gorgeous variegated dendrobium orchid design and artistic greenery will bring an air of sophistication your boss will love.
If you are lucky enough to have a great boss, let them know that your job is fun and rewarding because of them. On October 16, send a plant or floral design from Bagoy’s Florist & Home, or stop by to browse our gift shop. We always love catching up with our Anchorage friends and brightening desks!
