If you forgot to get your secretary, admin, or other office staff member, a gift for Administrative Professionals Day (yes that is a thing), don’t worry -- you always have time thanks to the digital world we live in.
Administrative Professionals Day, (used to be Secretaries Day), happens on the Wednesday of the last full week of April. And if you forget, your staff may leave you wondering what happened to the office morale. If you need some last minute gifts that you can buy online and gift immediately, then read on for some ideas your staff might actually like.
For employees, especially administrative professionals, the best gift is the gift of money. Let’s face it, that’s the only reason they put up with you. So why not choose Administrative Professionals Day to give them a raise or bonus? If you’re going to give out an annual raise or bonus anyway, might as well knock out two birds with one stone (and best of all, you don’t even have to leave your bush).
Digital Gift Certificates
If a raise or bonus is out of the question, then you might want to consider a digital gift certificate. These can either be to an online retailer, like Amazon, or a brick and mortar store that also has an online presence, or for a local spa. Stores like Sur La Table, William Sonoma, or even Target are sure to have something for everybody.
Perhaps just as good as money, for employees, is vacation time. Providing your staff with an extra half day, or even just a couple hours of vacation, at a later date, can go a long way in showing that you care.
Simply put, everyone likes free food. So why not bring in catered lunch for the staff, or better yet, take everyone out for lunch.
If you completely lack creativity and think your admin actually wants fresh cut flowers for their desk, or would appreciate flowers more than a gift card of equal value, then getting same day floral delivery is simple enough (though can be even more costly on holidays like Administrative Professionals Day).
