1. They say the best way to deal with a difficult boss at work is the way you would with a difficult toddler. Praise their achievements, ignore their tantrums and resist the urge to tell ’em how their brain is not yet fully developed. Giving them a juice box (or a tumbler of scotch on the rocks) never hurt either. Employees and underlings can keep Chill Pill ice trays handy for those times when your boss no doubt needs cooling off. Store Chill Pills in the break room freezer, or give ’em to the head honcho before that meeting he’s very unprepared for. Sure, he’ll still look like a fool…but at least you’ll earn points for fixing him a refreshing beverage. Help your whole office unwind! Chill Pills loosen up even the most hardassed CEOs and disciplinarians.

2. If you’ve ever worked for a busy, stressed-out boss, it’s likely you’ve seen the guy eat snickers and cheese doodles for lunch on more than one occasion. At a loss for what to get the big kahuna for the company-wide gift exchange? You can’t go wrong with a Luckies of London Brown Paper Lunch Bag. Durable and reusable, this cleverly-designed lunch bag packs and insulates the honcho’s food like a boss. After receiving one of these babies, your boss can say sayonara to those daily trips to the vending machine. Actually, that probably won’t happen, though it’s likely you’ll see a certain someone sunbathe under fluorescent lighting while he dreams about recess and PB & J sandwich days of yore.
