    Employer Christmas Gifts

    What sort of gift have you gotten from your company/employer this year?

    I've gotten the same thing, seven years in a row.

    I have gotten nothing...

    I did get an Itunes card at a vendor customer appreciation event last night. That was nice.

    Re: Employer Christmas Gifts

    A captains chair with the company logo on the back - nice tax writeoff for them.

    I got a $20 Barnes & Noble gift card last year from my VP, and I'm really hoping for that again.

    Re: Employer Christmas Gifts

    I guess I got a best buy card from one of our sister sites that I am in charge of running also. That was nice and unexpected. I forgot because I spent it that day on halo 2.

    Hy-Vee GC. I guess it's better than the box full of crap we used to get. I don't mind as long as the stock does well and I get a decent raise.

    $40 preloaded Visa card.

    Sure beats the $25 Fareway gift card they gave me last year. This way I can spend it before the wife even knows about it.

    A Jack Daniels gift basket for me the last 2 years. I didn't know I had THAT memorable of time at the first company golf outing I was at.

    Re: Employer Christmas Gifts

    So far I have gotten a card. No gifts personally from the boss or VP.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Re: Employer Christmas Gifts

    My new boss gave me and a couple other higher up employees a new Roomba, one of those robotic vacuums. It was pretty cool at first I used it for about 3 hours at home before it broke. I'm not sure if it was the manufacturer's error or mine, who knows. The instructions didn't say you should clean a shower, but they also didn't say you shouldn't use it for that. Oh well. I have already given it to a female coworker of mine. Hopefully she will think that she broke it and I will still come off looking like the good guy.
