7 Gift Ideas for Someone Leaving

Updated on October 27, 2010

What to give to that someone ?

Everyone hates to say goodbye . But it is a fact of life that we have to say a lot of goodbyes to a lot of people whom we love . Often times , it is not what we say at the beginning , but what we do at the end that people will remember us by . Giving a gift to someone leaving you is a good decision to make because you will make the person feel appreciated and hence feel love. In return,you will be remembered by the person as a caring and loving individual.Let's get to it then .

Literally a "Goodbye" Present?

Contrary to what people think , a goodbye gift does not have to be a sad one or something going " We will remember you" But instead, it should be something that the person can use for the next phase of his life . This will be more practical and encouraging to the person! Put yourself in the shoes of that person leaving you , what would he want or need for the next step of his or her life?

No Clue of what to get?

Well if you have no clue of what the person may need or if he seems to already have everything , it is no use getting him something common like a mug , bag ,pen or anything that he already has . Why not get him something quirky ? Something cool or fun that will brighten his day ? From what I know , everyone and I mean EVERYONE can deal with one more smile everyday.
