My boss bought me a bday present for my first bday at my job, then hers was a month later so I bought her a gift. I've now been there for almost 4 years and we have exchanged gifts for every bday and Christmas since. I hate having to go buy her a present, even though I get along really well with her, for some reason I just wish we weren't in that habit now. She usually gets me a voucher for $50 and I usually spend $30-40 on body lotion, hand cream, candles, etc. I think it's really lovely that she spends her personal money on me but it's just not necessary. At my next job, I want to try to avoid this situation again, any pointers?! Also just curious to see how many do and don't buy their Manager gifts?
