In 1958, an enterprising young employee wanted to create a special day for her boss, who also happened to be her dad. Just a few short years later, National Bosses Day was officially adopted, and thereafter, our mentors, leaders and guides were treated to some much-deserved appreciation on October 16. Nanz & Kraft Florists has a bevy of appropriate gifts to offer in tribute, all of them hitting just the right note. But our favorite item is green, interesting and the perfect scale to keep on an office desk.
Our Air Plant Driftwood Terrarium is definitely a Bosses Day gift to beat them all. These little air plants are also called epiphytes, or plants that grow not in the soil but in the air. These spiky-headed fellows can nestle in a bed of rocks, as they do here, and grow with very little effort on their owner’s part. A bit of a conversation piece, they help green up an indoor office space, especially when presented in a terrarium-style bowl sitting atop a piece of driftwood.
And look, there’s even a pop of color in the center. Offer this dynamic beauty to your boss and your gesture will not be forgotten, mostly because air plants last a very long time.
