  • What to buy for your colleagues when you are leaving the company?

    Care to share what you bought for your colleagues when you leave? The norm seems to be chocs but what brand and how much to give? Each one 1 choc or 1 box?

    I feel that it's not neccessary to buy gifts when you leave.
    But nice to give a small momento.

    I received small photo frame and stud earrings from ex-colleagues.
    When I left my ex-co, I bought stalks of roses and carnations (for mummies) and distribute to the closer ones.
    Bought about 20 stalks in all.

      It depends how close you are to them. If so-so only, chocs will be a good choice. Ferrero Rocher is good. For closer ones, you may wish to get more personalised items or useful stuff like a "mouse" which they can use and remember you at the same time.

          Hmm..I have around 20 plus colleagues ..so I bought individually packed pastries ( Sun biscuits from Taiwan because my mum happen to just have been there ) for the "masses" ..for all to share and for the colleagues whom I work closely with and whom really went out of their way to help me, I bought Royce chocolates for them , each box $14. Bought around 5 boxes in all. Plus thank gave thank you cards as well.

              Didn't buy anything. Instead, we have a farewell dinner together on my last day.

                      I can't recall receiving farewell gifts. My colleagues would usually buy a meal or drinks when someone leaves. I guess it really depends on the so-called culture of the company.

                            if very close then i will give, if not i feel that this is not necessary.

                            if have to, probably a farewell lunch or farewell dinner can already.
