Gift giving- employee to management

Can I/should I give my direct full-time supervisor a gift for Christmas/the holiday season? I couldn't find an employee handbook so I'm asking here. I work for the hub, not the UPS store, if that wasn't already obvious. And, if I can give them one, should I also give one to my manager? Would it be rude not to? Thank you.

Word! That wouldn't be cool unless you two are real friends! And then do it outside of the work environment.

And since my experiences are just that ... my experiences.
Ask one of the Union leaders in your group or even the steward.

Get an employee handbook anywhere you work.
The best gift any boss can receive is by you doing good work all year long.

Just for context, I don't like management, I just have a crush on my boss I wanted an excuse to get him something... I don't think I will though; I'd probably just weird him out.

Nothing good can come of thinking and acting like your full-time supervisor is your friend. It will come back to bite you in situations in which the supervisor has to look out for their own interests and will throw you under the bus to do so. Can't blame them for it. A healthy, mutually-respectful working relationship is all that should be expected with them.

Gifts to OMS, sure. But definitely not expected. The ones I've known have typically been great people. We get along great and being friendly and open with them has been no problem.

Give your supervisor a gift for Christmas! Never keep things as non personal as possible. This is a company that cares little to none about its employees. Save your money and buy something better for someone that actually cares about you.
