Are you looking for the best expensive gifts for your boss that they’ll actually want? If so, get one of these luxury gifts for your boss.
There’s nothing that says, “I’m so happy you’re my boss!” more than a beautiful, luxurious gift.
However, there’s a fine line between a great gift and a gift that can feel either too personal or too impersonal.
So today, we’re showing you the 25 best expensive gifts for your boss that they’ll be delighted to receive.
When Should You Give Your Boss a Luxurious Present?
1. What is your relationship with your boss?
Technically, you can get your boss a luxurious gift even if you two aren’t close, but that can come off as trying to buy your way into their good graces. Pay attention to your personal relationship with your boss, and your company culture.
It’s best to opt for luxurious gifts when you have a close working relationship with your boss.
For example, bosses who have supported you and mentored you to become the best professional you can definitely deserve a thoughtful gift.
2. On What Occasion can you give your boss an expensive gift?
If you’ve ticked off the relationship box, you might be wondering when to get them a gift to express your thanks.
Holidays and birthdays are very appropriate occasions to give your boss a great gift.
In addition to this, if you’re leaving the company organically and your boss is happy for you because you’ve grown with their mentorship, it makes sense to give them a gift to remember you by.
Similarly, if you or your boss are retiring, a luxurious gift can be a great way to commemorate your partnership.
3. What kind of gift should you give your boss?
Focus on their professional and hobby interests.
Don’t try to impress them with a gift that holds no value to them. It’s important for your boss to see that you understand what they might need.
With that in mind, let’s see what the 25 best expensive gifts for your boss are! For your convenience, we’ve categorized this post as unisex gifts, as well as gifts for a female boss and a male boss.
The Best Expensive Unisex Gifts For Your Boss:
1. Gift Baskets, e.g. Godiva Chocolatier Assorted Chocolate Gold Gift Box
Gift boxes are great gifts for birthdays and holidays, and expensive and luxurious ones are the perfect treat. After all, Godiva is the synonym for indulgence, so make your boss’ holidays extra special.
Godiva Chocolatier Assorted Chocolate Gold Gift Box features a selection of legendary caramels, pralines, and ganaches, as well as assorted white, dark, and milk chocolates to suit any palette.
2. Coffee Table Books Tailored to Their Interests, e.g. Assouline Pablo Picasso book
Coffee table books are an excellent gift because they allow you to stay professional while also giving a personal gift. Coffee table books cover a variety of topics; from rock music and fashion to architecture and cuisine.

10. Statement Wall Art, e.g. Renwil Orion Painting

Renwil Orion Painting comes in beautiful muted blue shades with bursting golden accents. The abstract concept will keep the attention on your boss, and make for a unique (and stylish) gift.

19. Candle Sets, e.g. Diptyque Baies Candle
Candles make for beautiful luxury gifts for your boss, although they can be considered impersonal by some. If you are going to gift a candle, make sure that it’s one from a best-selling luxury candle brand, such as Jo Malone or Diptyque. These candles have quite a premium price, so they’re not something that your boss is likely to buy herself.
You can gift a single candle by itself, or combine a few best-selling scents such as the Dyptique Baies, Roses and Feu de Bois. These candles are luxurious and beautiful, giving your boss an eye-catching centerpiece that she can proudly display in her office or at home.
