To the organizers. The planners. To those who keep us on task, on time, and well-prepared for whatever the day may bring, on April 26, we say: Thank you. Don’t let Administrative Professionals Day pass by this year without acknowledging the hard work, dedication, and perfection of the administrative professionals in your life who make your day-to-day schedule seamless and successful. We’ve got gift ideas to help you say “thank you,” and show them how much they are appreciated.
The History Behind Administrative Professionals Day
National Administrative Professionals’ Day coincides annually with National Secretaries Week. The unofficial acknowledgement week was designated in June of 1952 by then United States Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer. June 4, 1952 was first proclaimed as National Secretaries day. Today, we observe this unofficial U.S. holiday on the Wednesday of the last full week in April, each year. It is a day to acknowledge and thank our secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and all other administrative support professionals for their hard work and dedication.
Helping You Say Thank You
To help you say thank you to the administrative professionals in your life, we have your gift buying guide below, and ideas to help you get started.
For the Perfectionist with Exceptional Penmanship
Show your appreciation for the high-quality work they perform with a LAMY Safari fountain pen. We particularly love this shiny black pen with its brass wire clip. It is lightweight and functional and proves its owner is sophisticated, professional, and cares about quality—just like your admin.
For the Successful Multi-Tasker
Your administrative professional most likely not only keeps your life well organized, she keeps her life, and the lives of her family members planned and executed flawlessly. Show her you value her time—both in and out of the office—with a quality and convenient day planner. We recommend the Quo Vadis Texas Notor Daily Planner. Conveniently sized at 4 ¾ x 63 ¼, she can tote this planner to the office, to her home, and everywhere in between. Choose the color you think may be her favorite. It’s available in black, blue, red, purple, and green.
For the Detailed Note Taker
Admit it, you’d be lost without your admin’s meeting notes. Show him you appreciate hisattention to detail with a notebook that demonstrates professionalism and prestige. We recommend the Maruman Mnemosyne Special Memo Notepad in size A5. This elegant notebook measures approximately 6.05 x 8.25 inches and contains 80 A5 size micro perforated sheets. Each page has a space on the top for “Date/No.” and “Title,” making it perfect for documenting meeting notes, or even home journaling. It also features gray lines for subtlety and sophistication. The 24 lines on each page are even segmented into eight line groups by a bolder gray line for better organization.
