How to choose the best leaving gifts for friends

When a friend is leaving to carry on with their life somewhere else or maybe he or she got hired in another company, it’s always polite to give them a parting gift. Why is this important? Being humans, we are not sure if we will ever get the chance to meet again so a gift is perfect to act as a souvenir for them to remember you by. As much as we wouldn’t want to say goodbye, it is inevitable. If you’re the one who’s leaving you’d want your friends to give you something small. You wouldn’t buy your friends a random gift, it has to be something that is of significance to them.

Factors to help us pick the perfect parting gift

Like I said above, you don’t just pick any item as a leaving gift for your friend. If you do consider yourselves as friends, you obviously know something that is sentimental to them. Something that is unique to only the two of you.

1. Something you once shared together – maybe you liked dressing up for parties. At Luckies, we offer the Book of Masks which has tear-out masks of every design from Cleopatra to Victorian age masks which you can use for occasions like Halloween. If you were avid fans of Halloween or Masquerade parties, buying them a gift like this one is sure to make them feel loved. Don’t hold back, reflect on what you love doing together.

2. Something they like doing – you obviously know activities your friend likes doing. If they are avid travelers, you should buy them an Adventure Map and Adventure Journal. An Adventure Map has a scratch map which you can scratch the cover off to reveal the contents. They can scratch of the areas they have visited around the world or even of the place they’ll be moving to so as to get an idea of what to expect. We have a wide range of framed maps which can be customized to fit their needs and preference such as cuisines, geography and so much more.

3. Something new you know they might want to try – maybe there’s something you wanted to try but didn’t get the chance to. At Luckies, we offer a wide range of scratchable bucket list which will encourage them to try out new stuff when they settle in the new place. The bucket list can contain as many activities as you want making sure they never lack an adventurous time.

There are so many reasons that maybe more personal which will affect the kind of gift you want. Visit our online store and see for yourself the wide range of gift you can get for your friends. Our gifts are affordable for all and totally worth it. If you want a custom made gift just contact us so that we can get your specifications. It may be a bit costly but it’s also worth every penny.

Top 5 cool birthday gifts for men

Top cool birthday gifts

It’s hard being good all the time. It’s hard always getting it right, and sometimes you’re gonna find yourself stumped for a cool birthday gift. You’re going to hit a mental block on just what exactly you can buy to satisfy and delight. A dad, a brother, uncle, grandad, second cousin twice removed; the men with birthdays come in all shapes and sizes. It can be quite a minefield, all this being cool, but at Luckies we understand that, so if you think you’re in danger of buying your guy a Crocs voucher out of sheer exasperation and you’ve used up all the good ideas you thought you had, we’ve got 5 cool birthday gifts for men listed below to save your skin.

Explorer Bottle

Our Explorer Bottle is a stainless steel drinking bottle that does exactly what it says on the tin. Just to be clear, like we said its made of stainless steel, and it says it on the bottle which isn’t a tin. But look, you get the jist. It can be clipped to a bag or waistband for the more scatty birthday boy in your life, and he doesn’t need to be a Bear Grylls to benefit from its hardwearing exterior.

Camera Light

The Camera Light is a rechargeable ambient light presented as a vintage camera. Perfect for a bedside table, desk top, or corner of a feature shelf in a particularly cool living room.

Perry The Capitalist Pig

Perry The Capitalist Pig is a chalkboard money box, so if think your man is a little more difficult to please, maybe suggest he saves for his own gift. He can even keep track of his proximity to (and distance from) his goal by writing on Percy’s belly.

Adventure Wristband

The Adventure Wristband is a slap on PU leather wristband that houses an 8GB USB drive. Perfect for travellers, big important business men, or maybe just if your guy likes pretending he’s a spy – all equally cool reasons they might need portable storage.

If he’s a Summer baby, the coolest gift you can get him is one he can use at his (inevitable) BBQ birthday party. The BBQ stamp can be heated up in flame, and has 3 toppers so that he can brand different messages into the meat he’s cooking – “Black and Blue”, “Nearly Burnt”, and “Little Bit of Blood”. He’ll be the coolest host at the coolest party, and your job will be done.
