There are plenty of reasons to buy a gift for your colleague. Perhaps you’d like to say thank you to the colleague who never minds switching shifts, or get a little something for your colleague going on their maternity leave. Maybe you’d like to send a get well soon gift to a colleague that’s under the weather. Lots of people struggle to find the perfect gift, which is why we’re here to make things easier for you! Read on for some inspiration.
When arranging a gift for a colleague, one of the main questions is whether to go for individual gifts or pool together for a group gift. The good thing about a group gift is that it tends to involve a larger budget, which means more or better gifts. It will mean making sure that everyone has put in their share of the budget on time, of course, but with all of the apps that are around these days, this shouldn’t be too difficult. Our tip would be to make sure that you send out the request on time!
Unfortunately, it’s part of life: lovely colleagues finding new jobs and leaving the company behind. You don’t want to let them leave empty-handed, especially if they’re someone you enjoyed working with. Depending on your budget, there are various gifts to choose from. How about a personalised mug featuring a photo of all of the colleagues they’re leaving behind? Or a delicious bottle of wine with a personalised label? If you have a slightly bigger budget, you can take it up a notch. Why not go for a beer brewing kit with engraved glasses?
What can you get for a colleague that’s tying the knot? This can be a difficult question to answer. Most couples that are getting married prefer to receive a monetary gift. If you prefer to go a different route, how about engraved glasses featuring the couple’s last name and the wedding date? Or a personalised doormat for their love shack featuring a photo of the happy couple or a funny photo of your colleague as a joke? We also offer a lovely set of personalised pillowcases to add a newlywed touch to their home.
A great gift that they can use on their honeymoon would be our personalised travel journal, allowing them to look back on all of the fun they had when they’re back at home.
Aren’t they cute, our lovely gift sets? You can’t let your colleague leave for maternity leave empty-handed! Surprise her with a fun gift, so she can enjoy that wonderful time. Our decorative play suitcase is another great option, as it can be used to put together a cute gift set, to decorate the baby room and then played with by the child when they’re ready! Each gift can be personalised with the little one’s name, but if the name hasn’t been revealed yet, go with ‘Baby boy’ or ‘Baby girl’.
Has your colleague shared their new arrival’s name yet? If so, surprise the new parents with a sweet gift featuring their little one’s name. Create a cute baby romper or baby beanie featuring the baby’s name. If you have a bigger budget, put together a gift set including a personalised play suitcase, personalised dummy, personalised romper ánd a personalised baby beanie!
A great gift tip is our personalised ‘Welcome to the world’ book by From Lucy, in which a little elephant shows the baby all the wonders of the world. Simply add the baby’s name and allow them to play the lead role in their very own book!
When a colleague is having a rough time, you want to let them know you’re thinking of them. In some cases, the colleague won’t have the energy to keep in touch with everyone, as this can be mentally taxing. Nevertheless, it’s always good to know that people are thinking of you and you haven’t been forgotten. A sweet personalised card can be just the ticket, though if you’d like to go bigger, you could always add a cute bear with a personalised t-shirt featuring the photo and/or text of your choice. We have lots of cuddly toys to choose from, so there’s something for everyone.
If they need a little pick-me-up, you could always go for a tasty box of chocolates featuring a sweet personal message and photo.
If you’d like to thank the colleague that always gives you a lift or doesn’t mind switching shifts, we have plenty of fun gifts to surprise them with. How about a tasty bar of Toblerone chocolate featuring their name? We also offer personalised Milka chocolate and Verkade chocolate, if they prefer. Chocolate is always a good way to say thank you, and they might even share. Another original gift is our Super Hero tote bag, to show them just how much they mean to you.
All good things come to an end, so the chances are that you’ll be leaving the company that you work for one day. Saying goodbye to colleagues may seem simple enough, but can be harder than you think, especially if you spend more time with them than with your partner or friends. If you’d like to treat them all before you go, but want to make it extra special, we have everything you need. Go for a personalised set of chocolates, a huge jar of sweets or a Chupa Chups lollipop tower. All guaranteed to leave a lasting impression and personalised with the photo(s) and/or text of your choice.
