5 Leaving Gift Ideas for a Memorable Send Off

Deciding on a leaving gift can be a daunting and difficult decision. No need to worry though, we have a quirky compilation of gift ideas for you. From some of the ultimate classics to thinking outside the box. After all, you want to make sure your gift giving is truly remembered.

Pick the perfect parting gift

1. Next job gifts

Even though you will be parting, your leaver will still have a daily work life. Therefore, getting them something for their next job is a classy touch. Perhaps a gorgeous bonsai to sit on their new desk or even a fashionable planner to help them stay organised in their new role. 

2. Experience day

Ever wanted to jump out of a plane at 10,000 feet? Nope, neither have I, but you might know that your gift recipient has always dreamt of skydiving. Experience days are very much a unique gift that will be remembered forever no matter how big or small. Treat them to a high thrill experience or perhaps something more relaxing like a spa day.

3. Personalised mug

I don’t think you can read a ‘gift ideas’ article without the mentioning of a personalised mug. This ultimate classic can help remember the good times. Make sure they remember you by customising with an inside joke or a favourite quote you share. 

4. Gift box

Why not treat them to a gift box containing all their favourite goodies you know they love. There are a variety of gift box themes, ranging from personalised snack boxes to cocktail lover boxes.

5. Gift card

Ok, so you really can’t decide what to get them and you just wish they could pick something for themselves. Wait…they can! Why not let the recipient select their own gift by providing them with a gift card that gives them flexibility. Even better, Collection Pot allows you to create a group collection, where you can collect contributions and then send the Pot to a recipient. They can then redeem via our great range of gift cards such as John Lewis, ASOS and much more.
