Where to Begin

Reflect on your boss' accomplishments and contributions to the team or organisation. Include items that acknowledge their achievements.

For example, consider adding a personalised plaque or trophy to the gift box to commemorate their leadership.

Leaving a leadership position can be both exciting and challenging too. Help your boss relax and unwind with items that promote relaxation.

Finally, why not include a pack of Canyon Instant Coffee or the elegant fine-liner pen, Black Le Pen? Not only will it give them a taste of their working days, but it creates a lasting memory of you every time they use either.

A heartwarming way to bid adieu to a valued colleague stepping away from being a cog in the machine is to craft them a personalised retirement gift box.

ShopBOXD has got you covered with multiple curated gift boxes that you can pick items from and craft a more personalised retirement gift. Boxes like The Care Package and The Celebration are great places to start!

Where to Begin

Begin by considering your coworker's interests and hobbies. This personal touch will make the gift box more meaningful.

A well-rounded gift box strikes a balance between practical and sentimental items as well.

Crafting a Coworker Switching Careers Gift Box

When a coworker embarks on a new career path, it's a significant life change that deserves celebration and support. A gift box is a wonderful way to support and encourage your colleague as they embark on a new professional journey.

Crafting a thoughtful gift box can provide encouragement and show your colleague that you're cheering them on in their exciting journey.

Here are a few handy tips to help you get started, along with some examples of items you can include from our shop.

Begin by considering your coworker's new career and what they might need for this fresh adventure. Choose items that align with their goals and aspirations.

For instance, if they'll be taking lots of notes in their new role, our Black Desktop Notepad and Brass Pen are perfect choices for staying organised and jotting down important ideas.

Encourage your coworker to take care of themselves during this transition too.

Include items that promote self-care, such as our Well Kept Hampton Tech Wipes for staying refreshed and Organic Earl Grey Tea for moments of relaxation.

Why not present these thoughtful gifts in a Luxury Keepsake Box? A symbol of celebration for their achievements and new beginnings.

Include a handwritten card with a special message to make the gesture even more meaningful.
