Whether it’s a friend who’s landed a promotion or a colleague who’s moving on to pastures new, here are our top gift ideas to let them know you wish them well in their new endeavour.
The useful gift
Laptop bag – A laptop bag is a great gift for someone who’s starting a career where they’ll need to take a laptop to work, or perhaps head up meetings. Choose a patterned one or perhaps one with a vibrant colour instead of a traditional black one. Every time they get their laptop out, they’ll think of you.
Lunchboxes – Save the planet at the same time with a lunchbox. Lunchboxes have been given a cool grown-up make-over. Whether you opt for a vintage inspired steel one in pastel tones, bamboo with a bright pattern, or opt for a traditional compact lunchbox with cutlery. For the ultimate fashion accessory, a reusable lunch bag tote is sure to be the envy of all their new colleagues.
The thoughtful gift
Monogrammed diary – For a truly thoughtful gift, why not opt for a monogrammed diary? Whether you choose one from high-street favourite Paperchase, or go for true luxury with a Smythson, adding their initials provides the final flourish.
Audible subscription – Whether they commute on the train, in the car, or walk to their new job, an Audible subscription is sure to thrill. They can escape to another world when they listen to Audible. Fact or fiction, romance or thriller, with thousands of books to choose from, they’re sure to find the perfect listen for their journey’s to and from work.
The luxury gift
A hamper – A hamper is a great gift for someone who doesn’t normally treat themselves to luxury food items. Chocolate hampers are perfect for those with a sweet tooth, whist cheese and cracker hampers are ideal for those who like to host dinner parties. Why not create your own hamper with all their favourite things? It doesn’t have to be a food and drink hamper – you can create a beauty one with their favourite make-up and skincare brands too.
A gift voucher – If you want to celebrate in style, why not get a gift voucher for an experience? Perhaps there’s a fancy restaurant they’ve been dying to try, or why not treat them to a spa day to get them feeling relaxed for their first day at their new job.
If there’s a group of you, club together to get a voucher for a weekend away at a luxury hotel. Whether they prefer a city break or quiet weekend in the country, it’s an ideal gift to show them you care – you may even get an invite!
