How to celebrate admin professionals during a pandemic

Over the last few weeks, most companies have been going completely virtual, taking away the ability to see coworkers at the office. Daily morning meetings, lunch breaks, and coffee chats aren't the norm anymore (or at least, not in the same way). Because of this, it's important to find other ways to express gratitude to fellow colleagues. Admin Professionals Day is coming up on April 22nd, and it's the perfect time to celebrate the secretary or office admin in your life with words of appreciation, gifts delivered straight to their door, or the gift of fun activities they can do at home.

Admins keep up with the organization of a company, the communication between managers and employees, and deserve to be recognized for their hard work. To help workers in all industries celebrate the coworker who keeps the office running smoothly, the team at Wikibuy has come up with a guide on the best deals during Administrative Professionals Day. 

Top gifts for admins 
  1. Flowers. There are several options for flower delivery services, like From You Flowers and 1-800-FLOWERS. Roses, orchids, and lilacs are elegant and classy bouquets that are sure to brighten up your office admins at-home workspace.
  2. Breakfast for the family. Restaurants like Panera and Einstein's Bros. Bagels have catering deals that would serve as a great celebratory breakfast. Especially if the admin has family members in the house with them, they can enjoy the meals with the people they love as well.
  3. Personalized gifts. Gifts.com has a large selection of gifts that can be personalized to your admin's style and interests. There are leather bags and wallets for fashion lovers, and wine glasses and barware for those who enjoy kick-back and unwind. With a personalized gift, you can add meaningful messages to communicate your gratitude for all the hard work that they do.
  4. Meditation classes. There are plenty of virtual meditation classes offered nowadays, along with other mindfulness practices like yoga and aerobics. By giving this to your admin, you are promoting mental and physical wellness and investing in their personal development as well. Some options to choose from are Alo Moves, Within Meditation, and MindBodyGreen.


In times of stress and uncertainty, it's necessary for employees to be recognized. Holidays like Administrative Professionals Day are a great time to celebrate an employee's achievements and accomplishments, and thanks to the latest technology there are plenty of ways to do this remotely. For more ideas on what to gift an admin, no matter your budget, the infographic below is a great resource. It also includes some deals that administrators themselves can redeem on their special day as well.
