Your boss just might be the most important person you'll need to give a gift (other than your spouse, mom, and children). The boss is the boss, so sometimes you might need to kiss up to him and give him a fun gift. When you give your boss an office toy, he'll play with it every day and think, "what a thoughtful gift from [YOUR NAME HERE]. I should give him/her a raise!" Note: raise is not guaranteed, bosses may vary.
