Thoughtful Farewell Gift Ideas for a Parting Colleague
It’s bittersweet when a beloved colleague is making the move to leave the company. On one hand you reminisce about the times spent working together after work hours, perk-me-up water cooler chats and of course, the great support they’ve been. On the other hand, you’re excited for their next chapter and what’s to come for them.
Here are a few gift ideas to give a little thanks and wish them all the best in their endeavours.
Leaving the company may be a stressful decision and candles are one of the easiest ways to create a relaxing ambience. We have a selection of apothecary and hand poured soy candles that make the perfect gift.
Here is our Natural Hand Poured Soy Wax with different floral-infused scents such as Wood Sage & Sea Salt, English Pear & Freeasia, Cherry Tea, Rose and Pine:
On top of that, this gift can be a cheeky way to say how much you’ll miss them - they will think of you every time they see and smell it.
Another way to help your former colleague relieve stress would be salt lamps. Pink salts are thought to release negative ions into your space, which would be able to get rid of dust particles that may affect your health, thus purifying your space and helping the air quality of your home. Other beneficial claims include: increasing energy levels, alleviating symptoms of allergies and even boosting one’s overall mood that helps one sleep soundly. Plus, it’s a pretty stylish design that can seamlessly blend into any space.

First days are always nerve-wrecking. What better way to give your support to your colleague than giving them support on the day. Gift them with functional and handy office essentials such as a moleskin notebook, trusty pen and an office mug to wish them good luck for their first day.
With a sleek and modern design, Ana Hana’s two-in-one set of a Vacuum Flask and Cup is the perfect choice to spruce up the work desk.
Nothing really beats a compilation of thoughtful words from the office. It’s the people you work with that makes work dynamic and exciting.
Get everyone involved! To make it more interesting, you can prompt each person with a few general questions to make it personal and memorable. E.g.
- What was your first impression of him/her?
- What’s your favourite trait of him/her?
- Memorable projects you’ve worked on?
- Favourite moment you’ve shared with him/her?
Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion! We’re sure your colleague will be more than happy (and pleasantly surprised) to receive a fresh bouquet of flowers on their last day.
Did you know? Ana Hana has omakase-style bouquets which are customised according to your preference. Apart from the bouquets available on our site, you can also opt for personalised bouquets - all you need to do is share with us some references you have in mind, or give us a peek of your colleague’s personality and we can craft the perfect arrangement for you!
More than just flowers - Ana Hana has a selection of options for you to handpick the perfect farewell gift!
