Have you struggled with what to get your boss for the holidays, retirement or for his or her birthday? This list of funny gifts for your boss should solve the problem!

Let’s face it, there is no one type of boss. Whether your boss is the techie, the golfer, or the type who loves watching Netflix on the weekends, we believe we’ve cracked the ultimate gift giving formula for your boss. Introducing our very own list of 10 funny gifts for boss!

So here it is...in short, you can never go wrong with giving your boss something that’s customized, personal, and reminds them just why they are awesome (after all, who doesn't like their egos stroked). 

1. Custom Aprons

For the bosses who enjoy cooking, grilling, or baking, give them the gift of a custom apron. Put your face, their face, their pet’s face, or their partner's face on an apron. And here’s why, seeing a loved one on an apron will guarantee smiles around the kitchen counter or make for a great icebreaker when hosting company. After all, quality time with friends and family usually involves good food.

What’s more, Funny Aprons are made of water-resistant material that saves you from spills. Simply wipe away water, oil, flour, you name it. Plus, they're washing machine friendly! 

Funny Aprons are also equipped with large pockets for grilling utensils, beers, and sauces, adjustable neck straps for different heights, and long waist straps for a range of body types. You can even fit a couple bottles of wine (handy when Q4 hits)!

Customization takes less than two minutes. Once you select how many heads you would like us to crop (up to 3), select the background color, and then choose from 30+ patterns (organized according to theme). Finally, upload your photo and leave any special order notes for our designers. 

Plus, if your boss enjoys spending quality time with the kids cooking or baking, you can customize a matching kid's size apron!

We promise Funny Aprons are unlike any other off-the-shelf apron, and will be a memorable gift that is not only thoughtful and practical, but also budget-friendly, starting at USD 34.95.

2. Funny Text Aprons

For the boss who loves to crack jokes (and you're obliged to laugh even if they're not that funny), give them the gift of a funny text apron to match their sense of humor. For example, how can you go wrong with a “Take a Pitcher, It Will Last Longer” text apron for the boss who loves beers, or an "I Have Mixed Drinks About Feelings" text apron for the boss that has had one too many at  company parties. Even if you have the urge to roll your eyes at their jokes, at least they'll have a good kitchen pun on his or her apron. If you can't find a phrase you are looking for, our team would be happy to create a custom phrase and give you a preview, just email us at hello@buyfunnyaprons.com.

If your boss isn’t the type to sport an apron, why not gift him or her a pair of custom funny oven mitts or a long custom funny double mitt? They’ll certainly impress Thanksgiving company by presenting the turkey with some fun mitts. Plus, the mitts are thick and soft so the wearer knows they won’t get burned when removing hot items from the oven. We wouldn't want the boss to get upset after all!

5. Custom Funny Pot Holders

Everyone needs a pot holder to prevent burning their hands, the countertop, or the dining table (plus, moms will appreciate it!). Give the gift of a custom funny pot holder designed with a family photo or a cropped face on a fun foodie background pattern. 

6. Custom Funny Socks

You can’t go wrong with a pair of custom socks. Pro tip: baby photos will knock their socks off! He or she will love showing off these bad boys. We admit these have all been the rage recently, however due to their lower price point and novelty value being lost, we think that you can do one better by getting a kitchenware gift for your boss. 

With these custom socks, you can upload your face in a similar fashion to other products on this list. There are also text socks that are pre-printed which you can buy from shops like Walmart or Amazon, but you might seem lazy for getting your boss something unoriginal!

7. Custom Mouse Pad
