I usually write a pleasant holiday card to each of them, thanking them for the past year and looking forward to the new. I can't find it in my budget /time to shop for grown men.

I usually give my boss a small gift ($10, something funny) but I’m not this year as she gives me nothing but a “enjoy your break.” My old boss used to give me a few thousand dollars in cash with the instruction to do something nice for myself.

I used to bake / make good bah but they all travel. So getting baked items to them never took place timely. I gave up and just send Christmas card.

Absolutely not. They make 7 figures. They don't need anything. They get a nice card.

Do they give gifts to you? I always feel uncomfortable receiving gifts if I don’t give one as well.

I like to get something small IF I find something I know they’d love. Chances are - if there is something they want, they’ll probably just buy it for themselves.

I get gifts for my Bday, Christmas and Admin Day I have a pretty good group. I also give gifts too when I can.

Gift down, not up. A card will do. I always tell the people I support what I end up doing with what they give me, which I think makes them happy. I got an amazon gift card last year and I had been contemplating buying something that was a few hundred bucks, and the gift card made it a no brained, so I thanked my exec and told them how much the gift helped me.
