Farewell & Going Away Gifts for Coworkers
It’s never easy to say goodbye to one of your trusted colleagues but it’s a part of life that has become unavoidable for many. The sad reality is that you may never see this person again so it’s important to mark the occasion with something memorable, and what better way to do that than with a gift?
When it comes to gift giving one can never go wrong with food and drinks. At Miss Macaroon we offer a variety of hampers that cater to all kinds of dietary needs so no matter what, you’ll always be able to find something suitable and delicious. Our hampers, for example, come in a wide range from our collaboration with Sea Change Prosecco for that touch of sophistication to our LoveWell candle hamper which will give them something even longer lasting to remember you by.
Maybe you’d like your gift to be a little more personal and have a touch of comedy too. In that case our Eat Your Face gift boxes are perfect for you. Whether it’s a picture of the two of you together or a simple selfie to remind them who their favourite coworker is, it’ll be impossible not to think of you when they see this tailor-made treat.
Gift Ideas For Your Boss
Buying gifts for your boss tends to be perceived as a little trickier or more intimidating. People often forget their bosses are still people in an effort to avoid picking a less than appropriate gift or looking as though they’re trying to buy favour.
Never forget you’re a part of a larger team and that includes situations like these. Get together with your colleagues and all chip in to get your boss something they’ll really appreciate. It can take some of the intimidation factor out of the equation too, if you’re all chipping in and putting something forward then your good intentions can’t be misinterpreted as trying to get one up over your team.
Being at the top of the ladder may seem like the most desirable position but it can come with a lot of stresses and responsibilities. A good way to let your boss know you appreciate what they do and help with stress is by giving them something made to take the edge off. One of the most relaxing and comforting things you can do is sit back with a nice, hot cup of tea so why not get your boss one of our delicious herbal tea caddies? You can always take it that little step further with our Miss Macaroon x Tea People hamper, giving your boss something sweet to pair with that freshly brewed cup.
Farewell Gifts To Your Employees
What if the situation is reversed and the shoe is on the other foot? What if you’re the boss and it’s your soon to be leaving employee that you’d like to show appreciation for? Whether they’re retiring after many years of hard work or just moving onto their next career move it’s important to show that they were a valued member of the team.
Something as simple as a box of our macaroons with a ‘thank you’ printed on, along with a handwritten note, could go a long way in making this person feel they were appreciated. However it’s likely they might share their parting gift with others, so you could use this as an opportunity to show your company values and ensure people have a positive impression of your business. Perhaps opt for a branded gift. We offer a range of branded products from a gift box with your logo printed on to a selection of small favours with logos on coloured ribbons, perfect for work parties and events.
It’s not just the employee receiving the gift who benefits in this scenario. A small action like giving a parting gift does wonders in fostering an environment where you workers feel they mean something and are appreciated. Naturally this boosts morale around the workplace, gives your brand a good reputation and feeds back into your company.
Whether it’s for one of your colleagues who’s moving onto other things or simply an effort to cheer up a coworker who may be going through a rough time, giving gifts in the workplace is perfect for creating a positive atmosphere.
Here at Miss Macaroon we’ve taken this to heart and put into practise many of the things outlined in this article. When it’s time for one of our workmates and friends to move on we show how much they meant to us with a small gift. It leaves them with one final positive note to cap off their time working in our team and the employees who remain know they’re valued all the same.
So consider offering a box of delicious, hand-made macaroons in the office with the knowledge that it can only do good to those all around.
