Q: In regards to business gift giving, is it appropriate as a group to give the boss an impressive Christmas gift ($150-$200) each year? The boss always takes these 8 people out for a holiday lunch, which is nice. But the gift to the boss seems excessive and feels awkward.
A: In an office, individuals may contribute to a group Christmas gift. The value of the gift doesn’t have to be based on what the boss spends for a holiday lunch but what the individuals can afford and want to give toward a group gift. It’s a matter of choice.
