A coworker leaving your office is always a bittersweet occasion, and a farewell party is a great way to celebrate the relationship that has grown between you. But it can be difficult to find the perfect going away gift, especially if you haven’t been working together for long.
One of the best ways to show a colleague you care is with a thoughtful gift that you know they will use and cherish. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
1 – Plants
Give the person leaving your office a special plant they can take home and care for. A succulent is a great choice as it’s easy to keep alive and a lovely reminder of your friendship. You can even choose to include other small items, like a cute candle or a notepad with their name on it, in the box.
2 – Wine
If your friend loves drinking wine, then you can’t go wrong with a bottle of wine. This is a simple and inexpensive way to let them know how much you care, and it will make them smile every time they open it!
3 – E-Book Readers
If someone you know loves to read, but isn’t quite ready to give up paperbacks, an e-book reader could be the perfect gift for them. This is a lightweight option that makes reading on the go easier than ever, and it can be used on any device.
4 – Travel Scratch Off Maps
If the person you’re shopping for is a big traveler, then they will be thrilled to receive a travel scratch off map as a farewell gift! They can place this wherever they’re headed, and it will help them remember all of the places they’ve been.
5 – Mini Golf Pen Set
If they’re always on the go, a mini golf set is a fun gift that they can take on their next adventure! This is a great idea for a gift for someone who’s leaving their job, and it will make them smile every time that they open it!
6 – Personalized Tumblers
If you’re looking for a more practical gift that they’ll actually want, try a customized tumbler. This curved tumbler cup is available in different colors and sizes, and it can be engraved with the recipient’s name.
7 – A Photo Mug
If your coworker is leaving their office, then consider giving them a mug that includes their favorite photos. This will help them remember all of the times they shared with you, and it will also look great on their desk in their new job!
8 – T-Shirts, Stickers, Wall Art and More
These are some of our favorite going away gifts for coworkers. They’re all designed by independent artists, so they’re one-of-a-kind and created with love in mind. They’re printed on quality products that are made in socially responsible ways, and every purchase helps support artists.
