Spa Gift Card
Gift cards are a way to give someone a gift to a place that they have shown interest in, yet they allow the person to get what they exactly are either in need or desiring. One way to make such gifts humorous is to make the note attached to the gift card comical in nature. For example, a gift card to a spa for a day of relaxation can be augmented with a silly saying along the lines of 'I know working for me can be stressful, here is a gift to give you at least a one hour break from that.'
Stress balls, or stress relieving products in silly shapes, can be a funny way to let a secretary know that you understand their job can be taxing at times. Found at chemists, big box retailers and novelty shops; these can be an inexpensive way to get a laugh out of someone when given as a gift.
Downloadable Music Credits
Music can be downloaded directly from the Internet to an MP3 player. This makes giving the gift of music easier than ever before. For a humorous secretary gift you could give a credit to download music. To make the gift funny, add a personalised note that says something along the lines of, 'For those times when you need to plug in to tune me out, enjoy listening to some tunes to take you to another place.'
A one night getaway to a hotel close to home is not always thought of as a humorous gift, but presented in the proper context it can be. Choose a hotel that is located close enough to your secretary's home so that a long drive time is not required. Arrange for an all expenses or room-only credit at the hotel in the person's name. When giving the gift lighten the mood by giving a card along with the gift that says something funny such as, 'I know working for me makes you just want to run away sometimes and hide. Here you go, you get one day to escape!'
