Here’s where to start with ergonomic gift ideas for male boss
A Standing Desk
Bosses of companies are go-getters, leaders, negotiators, and doers. What better way to encapsulate that drive than to make sure they are at their best 100%? There are several studies that show sitting is getting more and more dangerous for people, especially for very long periods of time.
Studies have even shown that whenever you are on your feet, you get your muscle mass going. Even if you do something as minimal as stretch your legs or tap your foot, that expends energy. All of those little movements, plus the activated muscle mass, can burn far more calories than when you sit.
You might want to spill the beans on this gift and ask your employer if they even want a standing desk or what their office setup looks like. In a way, it is more fun because they can get in on the gift with you and everyone is happy.
Ergonomic Office Chair
If your boss is more of the sit-down type, then an ergonomic office chair might be just the thing for them. An ergonomic office chair is designed to give your boss the best support if they sit all day and can let them sit correctly. Most ergonomic chairs are very versatile and adjustable, and your boss can easily modify the chair to suit their needs and comfort level. The chairs also support the natural shape of the spine and can help them rest against the chair.
Ergonomic office chairs are designed to keep your boss comfortable as they work their long hours, and a comfortable boss is a happy boss! There are lots of ergonomic chair options, and you are sure to find one your boss is going to like.
A LED Desk Lamp
Bosses tend to work much later than everyone else does, and they need something to illuminate their office whenever the midnight oil needs to be burned. A LED desk lamp is powerful, energy efficient, and also very customizable. You can find a nice lamp for cheaper than you think so you aren’t going over the agreed upon budget, and some lamps can even be in the shape of something your boss likes.
Get a lamp in the shape of a golf club, a race car, or something else important to your boss. It can keep them happy and add a bit of personality to their office. Who doesn’t want to smile every single time they turn on the light?
A Flow Board
We’ve already discussed the problems with sitting down too much at the office, but why stop at just standing while working? While your boss might not have the time to crank out a set of pushups or head down to the company gym while working, they can still burn some calories and think on their feet whenever they are in the office. You can purchase a flow board, which combines the sports of surfing and skating, and can be an instant hit with any employer.
The flow boards are a large flat board with some type of weight in the middle, and you can stand on the board. The weight tips the board back and forth, and you need to maintain your balance on the flow board. It’s an easy concept to grasp, and it’s pretty hard to master. Still, all the extra movement is helping your boss burn calories and improve their balance.
Flow boards can be fun and can help to break up the monotony of being stuck in an office all day. Plus, some flow boards are electronic, and can learn your movements!
Now this isn’t some contraption that might monitor your fellow employees, but instead, a device that allows your boss to have total control over their monitors. If they work with a separate monitor in addition to their main computer, then this arm can allow them to move, rotate, and adjust their monitor to their liking. It’s perfect for video calls, monitoring data, and seeing the big picture with just a glance.
Rather than being a slave to the way their static monitors are placed, your boss can take back control and make their monitors work for them! A monitor arm is a fun gift that your boss can use every single day, and it can really give them the advantage when it comes to using a multi monitor setup.
The Best Gift Ideas Come From The Heart
Gifts for men boss are just like any other gifts for work from home. If you want to make a good impression on them, go for the heart and try to get them something that they might actually use. Look at your boss’s needs, lifestyle, workload, and personality. By getting them office furniture, you’ll be able to get something for their specific style and can make sure that your bosses can use and benefit from your gift.
Get started on finding the perfect gift, and the boss man is going to thank you! Plus, a happy boss certainly equals a very happy working life!
