As managing editor of Style Nine to Five and Beauty Nine to Five, I’m responsible for a talented team of freelance writers, coordinating all the blog posts you read on our sites, staying on top of trends coming from the beauty and fashion world, brainstorming and scheduling new, interesting content for you, our readers! In this role I mainly work remotely, from wherever my laptop can connect to WiFi, but I still have someone to report back to at the end of the day. My #GirlBoss is none other than founder of SNTF and BNTF, Christie Lohr. And although I work alongside Christie in a non-traditional sense, I’m still faced with the same seasonal dilemma of what to get your boss for the holidays.
Shopping for the business babe who hustles hard, looks good while building her empire, and clocks more hours at the office than anywhere else can be a bit of a challenge, but practicality is paramount for this type of leading lady. Here, I’ve rounded up some powerful presents for your very own commander-in-chic. From thoughtful tokens of appreciation to fashionable, functional tools that help her do her job more efficiently, these picks will bring your boss joy everyday.
No guarantees, but with these glam gifts it looks like someone is due for raise!
Let her wash the day off with a long soak in the tub to unwind and relax as the stress magically melts away.
