It's no secret that picking out thoughtful gifts for friends and family members is... tricky. Even when we're shopping for the people who are closest to us, it takes a lot of thought to figure out the perfect present. Though, not gonna lie, we're pretty damn good gifters.

But if you think choosing stuff for your nearest and dearest is rough, just wait until you start browsing for your boss. You want to pick something for a superior that is classy and cool, but you don't want to get them something so over-the-top your coworkers will think you're a brownnoser. And if you get something too personal, things could get real weird real quickly.
