Hi bees, I need help with choosing a gift to buy for my boss. I am a teacher and my boss is the principal at my school. She is such an amazing person who is very caring and supportive. The school I am currently working at is a private school and getting a public job is very unlikely especially for beginner teachers. Anyways, my boss helped me get the public school job and I couldn’t be happier. I would really like to get her a gift but am not sure what is appropriate. Most of the discussions we had are professional although we have talked about some personal things as well. I feel comfortable purchasing her a gift, but I don’t want it to come across as untasteful or offensive. She is in her late 50s and is very fashionable (wears beautiful but expensive clothing) and classy. She owns very fine jewelry, mostly diamonds. I was thinking of buying her a Swarovski crystal brooch (I have seen her wear a brooch before). Is this tacky? I want something that is thoughtful and that she would like, but does not come off as tacky or strange. If you have any ideas or any advice in general on this, please help. Thank you.
