Celebrate Bosses’ Day the Right Way, With Help From AAA

October 14th, 2021

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a boss worth celebrating. If you’re one of those who do, express your gratitude by commemorating the person who made such a feat possible: your boss!

Though not a federal holiday, Bosses’ Day continues to be observed annually on October 16 by all the employees in the world who wish to thank their employers for being awesome. If you wish to give a shoutout to your employer, a manager, or a leader in your company, consider these fun and affordable ways to observe the holiday.

Send a Bouquet of Gratitude

Flowers are an easy way to say “Hey, I appreciate you.” When you go in on the costs together as a team, they’re also affordable. And, when you use your AAA membership to order flowers through 1-800-Flowers, they’re even easier on your wallet.

When you shop 1-800-Flowers, you can easily deliver a smile to your boss’s face and up to 20% while doing so. 1-800-Flowers has locations across the country, from California to Michigan, and from Texas to Washington. If your boss just isn’t the rose and tulips type of person, shop through other 1-800-Flowers brands, such as The Popcorn Factory®, Simply Chocolate or Harry & David®.

Serve Up Some Thanks

If your boss’s love language is food, flowers may not be the best form of thanks. Steak, burgers and other prime cuts, on the other hand, may be. Go above and beyond with Atlantic salmon filets, Chicago beef franks, steak burgers or a Chateaubriand tenderloin roast from Stock Yards. If you’re thinking such an elaborate gift is bound to break the bank, don’t discount it just yet. You can save up to 20% off your order as a AAA member.

If your boss enjoys dining out more than he or she likes cooking, surprise him or her with lunch at an upscale restaurant. Think Hard Rock Cafe, Claim Jumper, Mitchell’s Steakhouse or River Crab at Blue Water Inn. Save up to 10% on food and non-alcoholic beverages at all Landry’s Restaurants.

Get Personal

If you’re looking for something more one-of-a-kind for a one-of-a-kind leader, shop with Personalization Mall. Part of the 1-800-Flowers Family of Brands, Personalization Mall aims to a smile on peoples’ faces by offering unique gifts at affordable prices. Appeal to your boss’s inner host by surprising him or her with a personalized bamboo charcuterie board. If you know your boss is all about that cozy lifestyle at home, he or she may laugh at (but secretly love) a personalized robe from the team at the office. Or, you can always stick with the traditional “Worlds Best Boss” mug. Regardless of what you order, AAA members enjoy 15% off the total price.

Not everyone can say they have a boss who makes the job fun. If you can, express your gratitude this Bosses’ Day with help from AAA.
