Many people feel overwhelmed when it comes time to buy a gift. What do you get the person who seems to have everything? Or, what if you don’t know them very well? If you’re looking for a gift that is affordable and unique, why not consider something from our selection of gifts under £100? We’ve got something for everyone on your list, so take a look and find the perfect present!

When an employee leaves, it can be nice to do a whip around.

If you’re the one organising it, make sure to set a limit! No one wants to break the bank, and there’s no need to. There are plenty of fabulous gifts under £100 that will show your appreciation without breaking the budget.

How much should you give?

It’s really up to you, and depends on your relationship with the person leaving as well as your budget. A good rule of thumb is £20 for close friends and family, and £15 for colleagues. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s something they will appreciate!

Did you know that in other cultures, it’s considered bad luck to give someone a clock as a present?

It’s true! In China, the word for “clock” (钟/鐘) sounds similar to the word for “death” (死/死).

Have you also wondered why we give clocks for retirement?

The tradition actually started in the Victorian era, when clocks were given as a symbol of a long and prosperous life ahead. Nowadays, it’s more of a way to say “thank you for your time” to someone who is retiring.

So what are some of the most popular suggestions for employee leaving gifts?

-A gift certificate to their favourite restaurant or store

-Tickets to a show or concert

-An interesting book related to their hobbies or interests

-A nice bottle of wine or champagne

-Gift cards are always appreciated!

-A watch or piece of jewelry: A lasting reminder of their time at the company.

-A nice pen set: For all those memos and emails they’ll be sending in their new role.

-A Keepsake box: To store all those memories from their time at the company.

-A Gift voucher: So they can choose their own perfect leaving present!
