How do you say Thank You?

A little history according to our friends at Holiday Insight:

"When :
Administrative Professional's Day: April 27, 2011
Administrative Professional's Week is celebrated:: April 24-30, 2011

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary's Day was created  in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. Klemfuss recognized the importance and value of the position to a company or business. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss, promoted the values and importance of the job of secretaries. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of secretaries.
Today,  the title is changing and evolving. But, the recognition is equally important. There are two new terms in use today. They are "Administrative Professionals" and "Executive Admins". The two names sometimes mean different roles and responsibilities to different companies. Both are broader terms, that encompass more positions than the original "Secretary" role.
The name change recognizes and acknowledges that the role has changed significantly since 1952, and for the better at that. And in Harry Klemfuss' day, these postions were the realm of women. Today, you find some males in these positions.
The most common ways of recognizing your Administrative Professional(s) today are:
  • Flowers
  • Cards, often with shopping gift certificates
  • Take them to lunch 
  • Candies
  • Assorted Gift Baskets"
How do you say Thank You to someone who helps you daily?  A person that juggles the phones, filing, all your appointments, and never lets you forget a special occasion?  Chances are your Administrative Professional does this and so much more on a daily basis.  So how do you thank them for everything they do for you every day of the year?  Simple, say it with flowers, or a great gift from The Secret Garden.

Here are a few of the things we have to offer up for your Administrative Professional(s).

This beautiful European dish garden is sure to brighten up the office.  It features lush green plants and a blooming plant for some great color.  We find these work wonderful in an office setting.  They do not take large amounts of light to grow.  They can also be kept on a desk or small table around the office.
