If you have a boss that you admire and enjoy working for celebrate them this Boss’s Day with Flowers or Plants from Bussey’s Florist.

The concept of “National Boss’s Day” was introduced to the United States Chamber of Commerce in 1958. The woman who introduced the concept was working for her father as a secretary at a State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois. In her observation, it did not seem clear to younger workers that their supervisors were dedicated, committed and hardworking individuals. She felt their dedication needed to be realized and appreciated.

For many years it was customary for an employee to simply give their boss or supervisor a thank you card. Today it is very common that gifts are given on Boss’s Day. Typical gifts are candy and chocolates. In many cases employees pool their money to buy even bigger gifts. If you have a special boss that you would like to give a delicious gift basket to, we have exactly what you are looking for.
