Administrative Assistants’ Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time to show our appreciation to the people who make our businesses (and lives!) run smoothly. These are people who remind you when you have a meeting, deal with the rude customer at the front desk, and take and handle heated messages like a boss.
Finding the right gift can be difficult, so here are 5 great gift ideas for Administrative Assistants’ Day that do not involve flowers and a card passed around the office.
1. TRAVELING AURA GIFT CERTIFICATE
Because Administrative Assistants are so integral to keeping our businesses running smoothly, it is important to consider their wellness. They will surely appreciate a spa day, either in-office or at home. You could also get them gift cards so they can add products and services to their pampering day of bliss. Everyone needs a little TLC now and then, especially our assistants who take such great care of our day-to-day activities in our businesses.
2. CUSTOMIZED JOURNAL
Customized gifts are a great way to personalize your message of appreciation. A customized journal with their name and maybe their favorite quote embossed can make a great gift. To add a nice touch, ask everyone in the office to write a few lines telling them why you appreciate them. Add a nice pen to round out what will be a cherished gift. Minted has a lovely selection of customizable journals.
3. FRONT ROW TICKETS.
Is your assistant into music, sports, fine arts, or theater? Make it your business to find out during conversations and take note. For Administrative Assistants’ Dayy, get them front row VIP tickets, or gift cards to a ticket buying site, such as TicketMaster, Eventbrite, or Live Nation. Give them a memory they won’t want to stop talking about.
4. TABLE ORGANIZER.
There is a chance that they already have this, but one way of showing your appreciation is to upgrade something they may use every day. Levenger offers a wide variety of home office and in-office desk organizers (as well as journals and pens!). Check out their new Editors’ Desk, perfect for working from home.
5. SHOPPING VOUCHER
Everyone needs a little bill lifted off their shoulders now and then. How about you give them a locally owned gift shop? In South Florida, here’s a list of locally owned gift shops, and here’s a list for North Florida.
6. SELF-CARE WELLNESS RELATED
Gift your admin assistant a self-care or wellness basket, include our Liquid Gold Cuticle Oil Pen, it's a pocketable and it's infused with vitamin E and is our custom oil blend. When used, it goes deep into the cuticles and nails and saves them from being brittle and getting broken.
