A quick guide to selecting the right gifts for Administrative Professionals’ Day
If there’s anyone at the office who deserves our appreciation, it’s our administrative professionals. And we don’t have to wait until Admin Day to show it. After all, they’re the ones who hold the keys to the kingdom. Who else should we count on for getting the boss to answer our calls, approve our expense reports, or schedule our reviews? Administrative professionals are often the magicians who keep the office running seamlessly.
To acknowledge admins for coming to our aid and helping us out time and again, it’s certainly appropriate to give them a gift on Admin Professionals’ Day. It's also nice to say thank you any day throughout the year, not just Admin Day. If it’s your own administrative assistant, all the more reason to recognize them. You might also consider acknowledging the assistance you receive from the admins who support your colleagues with a gift.
But how do you go about coming up with Administrative Professionals’ Day gift ideas?
When looking for gift ideas either for Administrative Professionals’ Day or any day you want to recognize your admin, remember that the first rule of gift-giving is to put some thought into what the person would actually like. So take a look at the admin. What do you know about them? What’s on their desks? What are their interests?
Based on the person, the perfect Administrative Professional gift could be an office plant, a bud vase or a basket of bagels. If you know more about their interests, it could be tickets to a concert or sporting event. For either gender, it could be as simple as a bouquet of flowers (but not roses; they have a romantic connotation). Just remember that well-chosen Administrative Professionals’ Day gift ideas are about the person you are giving it to. It's not about you.
One surefire gift that makes any day feel like Admin Professionals’ Day is an American Express Business Gift Card. It says “thank you” and “I appreciate what you do." Your admin will be thrilled because they can use the Gift Card to get exactly what they want. To make the gift more personal, write a handwritten note to accompany it. Granted, this takes time, but it also takes thought, and that is what’s most appreciated — your expression of thanks and acknowledgement.
