I am having a litle bit of trouble picking a farewell gift for my colleague who is going to leave our team so I am hoping to get some ideas from the lovely bees here 🙂
Budget: everyone in our departament contributed and therefore there’s around 150 eur available to spend
Colleague: doesn’t have any hobbies, is not into sport,lives alone, has no pets.. he likes to eat tough…
So far i thought of a voucher for a sushi-workshop where he can learn to prepare his own sushi at home or a ice cream workshop – same as sushi just with ice cream… But thats about it, I don’t know any better..
I would really like to hear what you got as a farewell present when you changed jobs, or what you gifted to colleagues who left your departament.. all ideas are very much appreciated!
Thank you so much in advance!

gift cards? Movies, restaurants, clothing stores? These can be pleasant to receive and they get to buy what they want.
Also drinks? Alcohol; wine, beer?
When I left my last job, they bought me flowers, cake, and threw me a farewell dinner and gave me a farewell card. All so thoughtful.

Is a sushi or ice cream workshop something you think he’d enjoy? I’d be worried that someone who has literally zero hobbies would find something like that enjoyable
I’d probably just play it safe and get a giftcard to a nice restaurant, that you know he enjoys.

I would do a gift card to a nice resturant.

A decent bottle of wine, something work-related like a tie clip reflecting your industry, and the rest in gift cards.

Thank you for the ideas! 🙂 Maybe you bees are right, i should just keep it safe and simple and do a gift card to a restaurant. A movie gift card is also an awesome idea! Why didn’t I think of that?!
He could even combine the two for a fun night out.
Oh yea, we already have a farewell card and a small work related thing, I forgot to mention that.
