What would you want in your gift bag?

You are travelling to a different city, which you may or may not have visited before, on business. You check into your hotel to find that someone from your office has prepared an awesome gift bag for check-in. What's in there?

Gift ideas for boss

My boss's birthday is coming up and our small team always gives gifts. I am struggling with what to buy her. I know her well, but I don't want something too personal. Here is some background: We work in mental health crisis. She also lives on a hobby farm where she takes in animals who are in crisis (sick, dying, or on their way to the slaughter house) and has a heart of gold. She loves her chickens and horses. She is a soon to be empty nester. She also enjoys cooking and baking. So far, my only thought is a magazine subscription to the Modern Farmer, but I am not 100% on it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

oh no. i screwed up.

In true sitcom-character form, I've gotten myself in a situation. I promised weird and exciting Christmas presents for work people by accident. I was half-bluffing half-joking, but now it has been taken seriously, and I didn't kill it soon enough, so now it is too late. And I need to deliver. By tomorrow. [more inside]

so long, and thanks for all the fish

I'm leaving my job at an environmental foundation after 5 years. My last day is tomorrow, and the 15 people in the office are starting in a new office space on Monday. I'm probably going to write individual cards to a few people, but what's a good gift for the whole group? They're overstocked with chocolate, plants, and cut flowers.

Gift ideas for a midllevel exec and an executive assistant, on the level of $500 each?

I work in a small office and two employees are leaving. The first was a midlevel exec and the other was an executive assistant. We are throwing a going away party for both of them, and the boss has charged a couple of us with the mission of getting them each something on a budget of $500 each.

Any suggestions?
