Wedding Gifts: Wedding Gift for Boss?

by The Knot
Q:

My boss is getting married in a few weeks. I've been her administrative assistant for three years and while we've always had a completely professional relationship, she is very congenial. I'm not invited to the wedding, but should I get her a wedding gift or a wedding card? What's appropriate?

A:

It's appropriate to give a gift, since you've been working with her for three years. The gift can be from you, or you might organize an office collection (just don't tell your colleagues they must contribute -- ask if they'd like to chip in and get something together). Another option is to plan an office shower before her wedding day. If you decide on that, however, make sure the idea is one she (and you, and everyone else) will be comfortable with.
