National Boss's Day is Tuesday October 16th.   When I first heard about it I thought it was a put-on.  Of course I thought that about some other 'Hallmark' holidays too - like National Re-gifting day (no lie!) which is celebrated on the Thursday before Christmas.   I have no explanation.  

So when I looked up Boss's Day I was surprised to find out the following:  Boss' Day (also known as Bosses Day or National Boss Day) is a secular holiday celebrated on October 16 in the United States. It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their boss for being kind and fair throughout the year. The holiday has been the source of some controversy and criticism in the United States, where it is often mocked as a 'Hallmark' Holiday (that's not intended as a compliment BTW).

National Boss' Day is usually celebrated by presenting one's boss with a small gift or greeting card. It is also customary to treat one's boss with extreme kindness, very similar to a birthday. Some fair-minded and generous bosses have been known to use petty cash to treat their employees to lunch on this festive day -- though it may take some time before this observance becomes widespread.
OK that last bit was actually funny.   But presenting the boss with a small gift is a solid tradition and a Boss' Day  fake magazine cover shows your apprecation for not having meetings at 4:30PM on a Friday.  
I decided to have a little fun at Mark Zuckerberg's expense making the cover nobody at Facebook dares to design!   The point is to have fun making a personalized magazine cover and making a few people smile or even laugh out loud!

Personalized Coach Magazine Cover


Fall sports season is in full bloom with some seasons nearly half-over.  That's a little odd given that the 'official' start to fall was only two weeks ago on September 22nd!.   Even if the season has another 6+ weeks to run you might be thinking about the postseason banquet and what to get the coach.  

The relationship a team coach has with his or her players is often critical in helping forge both team and individual success.  A personalized fake magazine cover from can offer those inside jokes and sayings that will be the best gift for a coach they'll ever receive.   A YourCover is a unique gift and one that will be treasured and kept for years to come. 

You know that the coach does so much to help players improve as well as handle the ups and downs that seem to be a part of every season.    When the season is over there's always a sense of a chapter being closed and the end of a truly shared experience.   Players feel this but coaches do as well.  

A great gift for coach is the way you can truly honor someone who is such an important part of every season.

Turning 50 in today's world probably means you've got a whole lot more living left to do.  Some people feel the best years are still yet to come when they turn 50.   But what can you get that will stand out from the usual 50th birthday gifts?  A personalized fake magazine cover  From will delight not only the celebrant, but everyone else who sees it.   

Maybe there's more time for golf, traveling or hobbies, or maybe just spending more time with family will become even more important.  When you turn 50 you have received a great deal of life experience, and honoring that experience with a unique gift that can be framed in many different ways so it will be a keepsake for years to come is a really special gift.  

Wouldn't you agree that being fifty years old today is completely different than it was fifty or more years ago?   People work longer, live longer and enjoy life longer than ever before.  It's more and more likely that being fifty only means you are halfway done (medical science is helping make living to 100 more possible every day).   

A personalized birthday gift allows you to show off your creativity and how well you know the person you care about so much.

Kim Kardashian & Kris HumphriesIt's fun to tease newlyweds with the old saying - "And they said it wouldn't last".   Making it to that one year anniversary is an accomplishment - just ask Kim Karsdashian - oh wait she wouldn't know that!   

But if Ms. Kardashian had made it to her one year anniversary she could not have done better than commemorating the event with a Personalized 1st Anniversary Magazine Coverpersonlized fake magazine cover.  Since the traditional first anniversary gift is paper the choices are sometimes not much better than monogramed napkins, designer toliet paper (really!) and other less than thrilling possibilities.   

And if you are up against a deadline and need an instant gift , YourCover can make you look good since you can download the file and print it out at home if you don't have the time to have it professionally printed and framed.   

If you can't think of enough things to write about Yourcover has a cool suggestion list of things you might consider adding - but remember to make it ultra-personal. 

A YourCover personalized 1st Anniversary magazine cover is so much fun to make and give to the happy couple - or your spouse.   Eat your heart out Kim!

Our customer, Merry, wrote about how she used a YourCover Scholar personalized magazine cover for her son's graduation party.  Merry created the Scholar cover with her son's graduation photo, and instead of a framed magazine cover photo print, Merry had the cover design printed in the poster size (18" x 24").

Here in her own words is what Merry has to say about YourCover: "The Fake Magazine was so much fun to make and it was displayed on an Easel outside our Garage so was the first thing our Guests saw.  Most everyone commented and some took their pictures with it.  I plan to hang it on my Wall in my Scrapbooking Room which will help me feel connected to my son as he makes the transition of moving away to College in the near future...."

Merry is an avid scrapbooker and you can read the full chain of comments about her great idea here.  Below are some images of Merry's poster and her son!  Thanks so much for sharing Merry!
