Why: Secret Santa can be a brutal exercise in office dynamics. The stakes are raised considerably when youâ€™re the (un)lucky employee stuck with shopping for the big boss. Especially when that boss is a man. Few things are as terrifying as finding the businessman who has everything the perfect gift. You debate with yourself – should I go the funny route or stick with something basic? That inside joke you shared at the last company party may not be as amusing under the harsh glare of fluorescent lighting, so stick with something high quality and basic. Trust me on this one. Cross has a great selection of boss appropriate gifts for under $50, and you can never go wrong with a good pen. This Tech3 Satin Black Multi-Function Pen, may not win you originality points, but at least you wonâ€™t be losing any good employee points.

This multi-dimensional pen is the perfect, non-offensive gift to keep you coasting right through bonus season.
