For October 16, Boyd's Flowers has some workplace advice: give your boss a gift.
Officially designated National Bosses Day in the 1960s, this occasion was dreamed up by a plucky employee who wanted to honor her boss, who also happened to be her dad. Since then, we've reserved this date to acknowledge the often undersung efforts of our mentors, leaders and guides. Naturally, we think a plant gift is in order. And possibly a workplace party.

Caring for something or someone other than yourself can be a means of satisfying a need in your own life. Sometimes we can get so caught up in our own busy schedules and specific needs that we forget to look around us. A simple remedy for this, and one that will make you more empathetic to others, is to bring an easily-cared-for plant into your own home or office. Learning what something else needs by paying attention closely can improve your ability to listen to others and be aware of their needs, too. Boyd’s Flowers recommends starting with a plant or dish garden that requires little work if you’re new to plant care. Read More about Treat Yourself To A Plant This September »
