"An employee may not give, or solicit a contribution for, a gift to an official superior, and she may not accept a gift from an employee receiving less pay than her if the employee is a subordinate.
On annual occasions where gifts are traditionally given, such as birthdays, Christmas, Boss's Day, an employee may give the following to an official superior:
Items, other than cash, valued at $10 or less;
Items such as food and refreshments to be shared in the office; and
Personal hospitality provided at a residence which is of a type and value customarily provided by the employee to personal friends.
On special, infrequent occasions, such as marriage, illness, or the birth of a child, or an occasion that terminates the superior/subordinate relationship, an employee may give an official superior a gift that is appropriate to the occasion. In addition, an employee may solicit voluntary contributions of nominal amounts from fellow employees, but not subordinates, to contribute to the gift. 5 C.F.R. § 2635.301-304 (see Subpart C - Gifts Between Employees)"
Never has there been a better excuse to be a cheap *** in shopping for your boss!
