Farewell gifts for guys
Give a present to your man before he leaves on a trip. (cruise ship image by palms from Fotolia.com)

For the businessman taking a extended trip from home, the significant other going on a vacation or the colleague leaving the office, a farewell gift conveys warm sentiments. Select a gift to reflect the lifestyle of the man in question or find a gift to help him in his travels. A parting gift forges an amenable bond between the giver and receiver and presents the opportunity for a deeper friendship if he returns.

Photo Album

Buy a photo album for the man in question and fill it with photos and mementos of shared experiences. A photo album or scrap book gives you the opportunity to display the good times you shared together and will provide a meaningful keepsake for the man leaving. Write funny captions or include a heartfelt inscription in the book to bring back fond recollections whenever the recipient reads it.


Throw a party for guy who is leaving and get some wine. Buy a couple of bottles of his favourite brand, one to drink with him and one for his own consumption. Champagne or sparkling wine makes great celebratory drinks. Offer a toast in front of his friends and family to mark the occasion. Gather things for a wine gift basket with dried fruits and cheeses to pair with a bottle of wine if a party is out of the question. Wrap basket in cellophane and tie a large bow around the handle.


If waving "Bon Voyage" to a man travelling for vacation or extended trip away from home, consider investing in a quality camera. Wrap up a digital camera for the recipient to snap shots of his new location. Include account information to share his photos online and relive his travel experiences with him. Even a simple disposable camera will let your guy document his travels.


For a lavish gift, you can buy a set of quality luggage for the man who is travelling. Choose a set with easy open and storage options to make life easier when travelling. If he already has luggage, get him a backpack of durable messenger bag to store personal items. Buy a briefcase or laptop bag for a work colleague who is leaving for another position elsewhere.
