To help celebrate this day in style, we put together a list of ideas and tips to help you avoid those typical clichés and impress your boss.

Take them to lunch – Know their favorite lunch order at the bistro up the street or their daily coffee order? Take a break from work and Surprise them with lunch!

Decorate their office or shared space – Sneak into their office the day before Bosses Day to decorate their desk with streamers and balloons.

Give them something to display on their desk so that every time they look at it, they know they are appreciated.

Give them a gift – Stay away from cliché gag gifts or personal gifts like perfume or clothing. Be thoughtful and don’t spend too much as that can be perceived as inappropriate.

Sometimes, a thoughtful and professional gift like a personalized business card holder or name plate for their desk can really go a long way.

A simple thank you – Sometimes the best way for you to show your appreciation and gratitude is to just say it! Hand write a simple card or type up a short and sweet email expressing your thanks and how great of a boss they are. The simplest acts of gratitude are usually the most remembered!

No longer at our feet but, forever in our hearts

Best Friends come into our lives and leave Paw Prints all over our hearts.

Many pet parents don’t consider their pets as pets but rather members of the family. Treating and spoiling them like children is a testament to the relationship between humans and pets. When you lose a pet, it is like losing family member. National Pet Memorial day is a day to celebrate all pets past and present and to bring closure to the departure of our loved ones. Here are a couple ideas to celebrate your late pet’s life and the impact they had on yours!

Plant a tree – Pick a nice shady spot in your backyard or in your local community and plant a tree or shrub in their honor. If they had a special or favorite spot in the house, commemorate it with a house plant. If they liked the yard, create a special healing garden memorial and build a bench like this one to really make it a special project.

Help animals in need – Shelters and rescue centers are always looking for extra volunteers and donations. Find your local shelter and donate towels, food and toys. It might be too soon or hard to adopt but helping to volunteer on adoption days to help other animals find forever homes. Who knows, you might even fall in love with another fur ball.

Memorial Frames/Keepsake box – Do you have a favorite photo of your beloved pet? Maybe with their favorite toy, doing something silly or a great portrait? Display it in a classic Wooden Frame or this cute Dog Bone frame to always keep their memory around. Still have their favorite toy, leash or clothing? Store their precious items in a Memorial Box big enough to hold all of their favorite things and your special memories.

 

Hold a Memorial Ceremony – Give your pet a proper Memorial ceremony, invite friends and family over to say sweet things and remember the joy they brought. Reflect on silly and cute times or a moment your beloved pet helped you through a hard time. This ceremony could include planting a tree, creating a memory box or simply lighting a candle and is designed to bring closure after a loss.

Memorial Headstone – Commemorate their grave site OR your special healing garden/ceremony with a special headstone. Dignified and classic, this Engraved Black Marble Stone is perfect headstone for your late pet. Suitable for your outside healing garden and classy enough to compliment any home décor.
