Going Away Gift Ideas for a Boss

Save

When your boss is leaving due to retirement or taking another job elsewhere, it is customary to give him or her a nice going-away gift. That can be an item that was purchased by you alone, or a larger gift that several coworkers pitched in to get toether. Selecting a nice gift for your boss can be difficult, especially if you do not know him or her very well personally. However, there are several gift ideas that can suit a wide range of individuals.

Many executive gifts allow for personalization. A nice briefcase can be personalized with the recipient’s initials. Executive desk sets that include items such as clocks, pen holders, and name plates are often designed to be personalized as well. A leather passport case or portfolio will look much nicer with a name or initials embossed on the cover.

From the Cheesecake of the Month Club to the Cigar of the Month club, one can find a "monthly membership" to suit almost any taste. Those monthly memberships can get quite pricey, typically running from $200 to $500 for a year’s worth of gifts, so these gifts are good for several employees to give together. For a work-related gift, consider the Tie of the Month Club. For a gift that offers a little more fun, try the Candle of the Month Club, Movie of the Month Club, or Pizza of the Month Club.

If your boss is retiring, a business-related gift may not be useful. Instead, give your boss something that he or she can use to enjoy retirement. Ask some careful questions before selecting your gift to determine what you boss is most looking forward to. An avid golfer may enjoy a set of monogrammed markers for golf clubs, a golf gear case, or some new clubs. If your boss is planning to travel after retirement, consider giving a passport holder and travel journal.

The Fishing Gift Basket from GourmetGiftBaskets.com is perfect for the retiree who is looking forward to casting his or her worries away out on the water. That basket contains tasty snacks such as wild smoked salmon and olive oil and sea-salt artisan crackers, fishing-themed coffee mugs, and more, inside a useful fishing creel basket.
