Why not get him a card and a box of choccies seperately and then you can direct the card, and the sweets for boss and family. Something like this as a message would work: Dear Boss and family, thanks for your kindness, support and consideration this year. I greatly appreciate it. Yours etc, Yellow Elley

I think I would just sign my name but get him and his family a seperate card just from you & h2b - then you could say thank you for all your support and help over the year it was much appreciated by us both, Merry Xmas blah, blah. I think he would appreciate the gesture & I personally wouldn't like to write too much on a general card from the office where everyone is signing as well ......

Is it a Christmas card for him? If so, write something like: Dear X, Hope you and your family (if you know wife/kids names you could put them in) have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for all you've done for me this past year, you've been so generous in so many ways and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it all. Looking forward to working with you again in 2007, best wishes etc etc

If everyone is going to see it keep it simply. Just say how gratefull you are for all his help during the year and wish him a happy xmas. If you want to make it personal you could always just say to him after that you didnt want to write it down but thanks so much for all that you have done. Or just say on the card "well, im not a woman of many words, so thanks for everthing.

Can you get him to have a word with Niall for me or give me a job!! I'd say just write a little note on the office card and get your own one for him too. We got your card here the other day. Kelly seeing as you have met her you know she's a woman of many words haha
