I'm going to be leaving the job I've had for the past ten years. I love this company but my husband and I are moving. I've never had a better, fairer, or nicer boss and will miss him a lot. I know they are planning a pot luck lunch for me, but I want to do something for my boss. I want to express my gratitude somehow.
I don't know him on a personal basis, so I don't know if this is appropriate or not. And I don’t want him to think I’m brown-nosing to get a good letter of recommendation. Would it be in bad taste to give my boss a thank you gift?
