What to Get Your Assistant for Administrative Professionals' Day
Administrative Professionals' Day (formerly known as Secretary's Day) is April 21, 2021 -- these are all of our past discussions on the blog for what (and how much) to get your assistant, how to celebrate an amazing assistant, what to delegate to an assistant, what to get a male assistant for Administrative Professionals' Day, and other related discussions!
If you're thinking of ordering a present early, these are some good ideas for Administrative Professionals' Day:
- Amazon giftcards - after all, what can you NOT get at Amazon?
- Nordstrom has a great gift section! I love that you can sort by "under $25" or more than that, as well as see everyone's reviews. (Pro tip: anything from Barefoot Dreams is a sure thing!)
- Your local florist - because who doesn't love flowers or a nice fresh plant
- Take him or her out to to lunch - the newer and fancier the restaurant, the better!
