Dear [recipient's name]:
It is with great pleasure that I wish you a wonderful National Bosses' Day! In the past two years since I started working for you, I have learned so much professionally and am grateful for all the ways I've been able to expand my career. Aside from that, you have been an excellent mentor and a wonderful person with whom to work.
I look forward to taking you to lunch this week to honor you on this special holiday. Thank you again for being an excellent boss.
