Are you looking for gift ideas for your directorial board? Finding the appropriate gift for your CEO colleagues may be nerve-racking and time-consuming if you don’t know where to look.
It might be your company’s anniversary, or you have just landed a significant client. Whatever you are celebrating, it wouldn’t hurt to give your directorial board a little something to keep them going. As one of the big bosses in your company, there is a certain air of superiority that you may hold. There might be some pressure to find the appropriate present for your fellow CEOs.
Gift-giving may not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to maintaining a business. Still, good camaraderie among colleagues is a significant factor in keeping the company alive and well. It pays for you to be thoughtful in your gifts as it can establish your relationship with your colleagues (and how they perceive your tastes.) What are gift ideas you can use for your directorial board’s celebration?
The Executive Present
If you are one of the big bosses, you know how picky a boss can get when it comes to gifts. It may be challenging to find the appropriate present for people who seem to have everything, but there are still gift items out there that they will surely appreciate. Take the time to get to know their interests so that you can find a gift that suits their tastes.
Let’s start with the unusual. You may have colleagues who are very much into the field of shooting targets. That is not to suggest you give them an extra gun of their own (unless you somehow get a licensed one). With this interest in mind, your colleague may appreciate a laser engraving machine for guns. There is a particular privilege that is exuded from having a personalized item in one’s arsenal. This may be the key to finding a perfect gift for that colleague of yours.
Everyone loves a good slab of steak. So why not gift your colleagues with American Wagyu? Already cooked or not, your colleagues will appreciate a good serving of protein to beef up their dinner.
For the sporty colleagues, you can gift them with something they can use to stay in shape. A foldable bike may be what they need to stay healthy during this difficult time.
Another good gift idea is a delicate and smooth drink for their private bar, which will surely delight any CEO. Splurge a bit to satisfy their taste for luxury. Treating your colleagues to good beverages will always be worth the price.
These are luxury examples of what you could give your CEO colleagues during a particular celebration. Although these are great treats and will surely motivate your colleagues to work even harder, there are also ways to encourage good camaraderie outside lavish celebrations.
Camaraderie Among Colleagues
During the pandemic, working remotely may have slightly changed your relationship with your colleagues. This is not always a bad thing. It is normal for things to change, given the unfortunate circumstances. What can you do to strengthen your bond with colleagues despite the quarantine period?
Try to catch up on their personal stories and take a break from work chat. This can loosen any tension that may have been building up in your company that you may not have noticed. Uplift the mood by talking about family, home life, or that show on Netflix. Keep it casual so that when you get back to work, your mind will be more at ease knowing you and your colleague have bonded.
Do an activity together. The big bosses may have an air of superiority, but you don’t necessarily have to let your subordinates know what your directorial board does together out of office hours. Organize a game night or even a movie night with your families virtually, and you can bond over drinks and popcorn. This will allow you to get to know each other better and keep your relationship stronger.
Keep it casual with your colleagues, especially if you are dealing with your directorial board. Things may get too formal and stuffy, especially during a remote work setup when it is difficult to tell a person’s tone just by reading their words on the screen. By keeping a casual vibe with your CEO colleagues, everyday work will be much easier to deal with.
Gift-giving may be an unusual way to keep a stronger relationship with your directorial board, but you may eventually deem it as essential. Doing so will allow you to get to know each other better. Through this, you will learn how each other works, and your business may run smoother than before.
