Impressive Going Away Gift Ideas They'll Never Let Go Of

Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things we have to do. Saying it in style is often impossible.

These going away gift ideas take the awkward guess work out of knowing how to truly say thank you to a loved one, a colleague or a retiring mentor.

The key to making a farewell celebration a success is getting organized, so get your friends, family or colleagues together sooner rather than later and say goodbye in style.

Going Away Gift Ideas - Family Collage

She's graduated from university and has decided to enjoy a gap year traveling through Europe.

While she'll be traveling with a friend, she has never lived away from home before. She's showing a lot of tenacity and passion for adventure, but you know she's going to miss her family.

To make it clear that you and her family will always be there for her, present her with a going away gift from the heart - a happy, friendly family portrait to take with her.

This collage canvas is your compact, light-weight answer. As well as being easy for her to fit in her suitcase, there are six photo frames - enough to feature multiple images of the whole family.

Ask every member of the family to choose a favorite moment from their time spent with the new world traveler then create your canvas using this traditional collage template. 

The idea isn't to provoke home sickness. The idea is for her to have loved ones she can hold onto while she's away.

Of course it's not as though it's going to be her only contact with you. It's just a great keepsake to tide her over between Skype chats - a piece of home.

This balloon collage from our modish collection has 10 frames, a wonderful opportunity to include a wide variety of photos as well as a personalized message from the team.

Whether Sally has been there 20 years or 20 months, collect as many photos as possible for the collage.

The shots don't all have to be of Sally, they can be of colleagues, special events as well as typical Sally's 'day at the office' shots like the coffee machine or the photocopier.

Think of all the sentimental memories and in jokes you can and adorn the collage with those memories.

To create a personalized message, simply visit Canva and design a simple text image.

On Canva, there are a number of free text options available. Alternatively, ask your inhouse graphic designer to create the image for you.

This gift will see your colleague leave with a smile on her face and a spring in her step, knowing she's felt valued and will be dearly missed.

It will also be a wonderful addition to her new office, don't you think?

None of you are ever going to admit it to him face to face, but as proud as you are of him, everyone's a bit bummed that he's leaving.

Whether your friend is off to make his millions in the big end of town or simply set to be stationed elsewhere for a while, this photo gift from the boys, mounted on metal, is a noteworthy way to say goodbye.

Think of the most amazing adventure you shared together and mount a photo from that time on a single brushed aluminum print.

Choose an image that's bright and colorful. It's not about depressing the poor man into coming home - it's about inspiring him onto great heights.

Your brother is reluctant to leave home, but his work has found him a great opportunity in London he simply cannot turn down.

This gift will help inspire him to embrace the bright side.

Whether he's looking forward to the experience or not, it's important to find the right quotes to suit his individuality.

The great news is that you can choose whatever images and quotes you like. Check out Pinterest for some inspiration or simply Google 'travel quotes'.

Once you've found two of the best quotes, design an image in Canva by adding a photo as the background and some text to the foreground.

The trick to getting this design right is making sure the text is visible, so you may need to trial a few images, font styles and font colors to get it right.

Once you've downloaded your images from Canva (we recommend selecting 'PDF: To Print' for the highest quality), convert them into JPEGs then upload them to our Canvas App, selecting this ideal two-panel traditional collage template.

Margaret has been a volunteer for 15 years incuding three terms as president of her local Rotary group. She's now ready to retire.

Great looking. Fit well!
This is my third Self Pro Balaclava, I have already owned and used the Balaclava - Windproof Ski Mask - Cold Weather Face Mask Motorcycle Neck Warmer or Tactical Balaclava Hood. Ultimate Thermal Retention in the Outdoors Super Comfortable Hypo-allergenic Moisture Wicking and Balaclava Fleece Hood - Windproof Face Ski Mask - Ultimate Thermal Retention & Moisture Wicking with Performance Soft Fleece Construction, Black, One Size extensively.

I use these masks to walk/run 5/6 miles at a time in very cold weather. This new mask is an improvement on the original windproof mask design. The individual segments of the mask and seams are placed differently, which makes it feel as if the mask was custom made (at least to me). The inside of the mask is lined with a very soft material that makes it even more effective at keeping warm and dry. The best change so far is the front of the mask: it has additional material on the nose/mouth area, it makes it a lot easier to breathe but at the same time it stays dry (the original mask gets damp if you are a mouth breather). The shape of the head area is perfect for wearing under a cap.

The way the seams changed also makes it a lot easier to route headphone cables outside of the mask. I wear a wireless Bluetooth headset that loses connectivity if I wear it inside of a mask. With the previous design it's a bit hard to route the cable, with this new design there's a bit more room due to the way the fabric flaps over the ear.

I have used this mask down to around 25 degrees Fahrenheit adjusted for windchill and I was always extremely comfortable.

Update: January 2018: I have now worn this mask during negative windchill (my worst one so far has been -4 F), and I am still very comfortable. I have been running in < 10F for the past week without issues and the windchill doesn't seem to be a factor as long as I remember to wear the mask so it covers my eyebrows, unlike how I wear it in my photos.
Not as soft as other Hanes products I've gotten. Very rough/scratchy even after a few wash/dry cycles.
:( zipper broke after using it for 6 weeks
Its perfect
fit great and great price.
They are nice but to big for my face
these last better than jeans! super happy
My daughter is curvy, but these were loose in the waist and long in the length. We kept them because I'm hoping she can grow into them.
Just great
So stunning!!! Looks fabulous in person. Obviously I liked it enough to purchase it but so much more prettier in person! Very happy with the purchase. Very large and roomy bag.
Bought these for my husband. They were a good price and fit as expected. He likes them.
So warm and cozy!! Easy to clean.
No too small
I have been buying this very cut of jeans for years, and have even been ordering them from amazon but this particular order of 2 pair fit TOTALLY different than all of his other 501 original fit. Not sure how or why but they are a no go for sure!
I Like the ankle length
I have never seen a sock that is so thin.
Shame on Hanes for selling this garbage.
perfect. everything in one place and protected!
Item as described....perfect and the slot for my gun fits perfect! The wallet is spacious and having the option to carry it alone with the straps as a purse is a huge plus! Love it!!
Excellent fit
The design is really good. It is compact and holds what you need. I have five cards and some cash in it and it's perfect. The only complaint I have is that the zipper doesn't zip sometimes. I am a little more careful with zipping this then I have been with anything else.
Bought it for my boyfriend, and he is quite pleased with it. We have a heavier one for the winter, and with the warm summer months, this is the perfect house-lounge wear.
Does not fit regular sized credit cards or IDs. What are they thinking? Good tri-fold wallets that close shut seem very hard to find!
Ordered these for a wedding, worked perfect.
Run a little shorter than I expected, has me concerned about sizing once washed a few times. The quality of the product is very good, excellent value.
Arrived on time and fit as expected
They are at least two sizes bigger than what you would expect...but they are really nice shirts.
There is surprisingly a ton of space in this bag!
I don't really care for the gold chain strap so I switched it out with a plain black one I had from another purse and I honestly love this bag!
The ears and more rounded and kind of curve to the sides of the bag rather than standing up pointy on their own like the picture, but i don't mind that very much.
Love it and it carries all my cards and cash PERFECTLY!
