Saying farewell to a beloved employee is never easy. Whether they’re retiring, being made redundant, or moving onto pastures new, having to say goodbye to an employee can be tough, both personally and for the business. However, it doesn’t have to end on a bad note. Say goodbye to a leaving employee with a sentimental and unique gift that can be cherished for years to come.
We’ve collated a few helpful tips and leaving gift ideas to help make choosing a leaving gift as simple and easy as possible.
Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Leaving Gift
- Make sure you choose a quality product. When presenting a leaving present, the recipient needs to feel their contribution to the company hasn’t gone unnoticed all these years. The gift you select needs to reflect their dedicated service and acknowledge their contributions throughout the years.
- Choose your timing carefully. Think carefully about the timing to present your gift. It can often be a nice gesture to award the leaving gift as a presentation on the last day.
- Consider personalising the gift. Never underestimate the power of personalising a gift with the recipient’s name and a unique message. This shows that some thought has gone into designing and choosing the leaving gift.
- For large-scale leavers, such as employees on a graduate scheme that’s coming to an end, choose a gift that will appeal to both men and women. This isn’t easy as selecting the perfect gift is always a challenge. Luckily, our stunning award gifts have always been received with great pleasure.
- Presentation – first impressions really do count so make sure you spare a thought for the packaging of your leaving gift. A lovely high-quality box can add so much to the perceived value of the gift.
Personalised Crystal Leaving Gift Ideas
If you’re struggling to think of a suitable leaving gift for a departing employee or colleague, then there is no need to stress. We’ve created a range of leaving gift ideas to help make your life easier.
- Our Crystal Paperweights come in a vast range of shapes and sizes and can all be 3D laser engraved as well as colour printed to add a pop of colour to your gift. Our in-house design team create a bespoke design including your company logo, employee name and dates of service to the company engraved into the crystal for the perfect personalised leaving gift.
- Why not personalise a Crystal Pen Pot with a unique design – the perfect memento from one job to another. The Pen Pot can be 3D engraved and colour printed with a design of your choosing and is the perfect gift for the departing employee to place on their new desk, allowing them to remember their favourite employer.
- Alternatively, if you’re saying goodbye to a group of leavers, such as graduating apprentices, then our smaller tokens may be more appropriate, such as our Crystal Memo Clip or our LED Light Keyring. Both of these gifts are not just stunning but functional; providing those young apprentices with a thoughtful gift to commemorate their time with your company, as well as a functional leaving gift they can use in everyday life.
Here at Laser Crystal, we offer an extensive range of gifts and crystal shapes, all perfect for use as a leaving gift. In fact, any of our Awards & Trophies shapes would make a great leaving gift; above are simply just a few leaving gift ideas to provide you with some inspiration.
Leaving Gifts for Other Occasions
Leaving gifts aren’t just for employees leaving businesses. Maybe you have a family member or friend who is relocating to another area or country. Or maybe a member is leaving a club or association. Or a team member is leaving a sports club. Whatever it may be, it’s always nice to honour the departing person with a gift they can treasure.
Here at Laser Crystal, we offer a range of crystal shapes and other unique items perfect for leaving gifts. Whether it’s an LED Light Keyring, or a Crystal Paperweight, we can create the perfect leaving gift for you. Our in-house design team will work with you to create a 3D design to honour the leaver, which will then be 3D laser engraved into the crystal item of your choosing.
