Holiday shopping for friends and family is both difficult and exhausting, albeit rewarding in the end. But throwing your coworkers into the mix can make things especially tricky—especially when you’re shopping for your boss.

Unless you can think of a really good reason to splurge on your boss (like, if you make a million dollars a year, or your boss is also your mom), then by all means—go for it. But for most of us, it’d be inappropriate to spend boatloads of money on our bosses. Yet, as with any gift, we want them to actually like the things we buy them. Otherwise, the whole thing feels like a waste of time and money, and we end up with a whole new kind of anxiety we didn’t even know existed.

Below, shop 17 thoughtfully selected gifts your boss will actually enjoy. The best part? They’re all under $100, so they won’t break the bank.
