Why is an online money pool the perfect going-away present for a colleague?

Whether it's Alex from accounting, who's been with the company for over 20 years, or Kim from marketing and communications, who's leaving after 2 years within the company... A colleague's departure is a moment of both joy and often melancholy but above all, it's an opportunity to celebrate the good times spent together with a special going away party, while wishing them the best for their future endeavors.

Good news is you don't have to rack your brain to find the perfect going-away present anymore : the online money pool now makes your life easier.
Choosing to create an online money pool for a goodbye party means :

  1. An easy-to-organize collective gift: you can create an online money pool and invite your whole team in just a few clicks. Each colleague can contribute with the amount they feel comfortable with, depending on their budget and how close they are to the person.
  2. Polyvalence and freedom: an online potluck offers great flexibility to everyone, contributors and "receiver" alike. Ea ch contributor can decide to participate anonymously if they wish to. And the "recipient" can choose to use the funds as he or she sees fit: travel, restaurant, care, leisure, furniture... It's up to him or her to decide what he or she wants. This way, you can be sure your gift is always on point!
  3. Your secret is kept until the last minute: when using the old fashioned envelope moving from desk to desk, the risk for it to end on the departing colleague's one is quite high… And there goes the surprise! With online fundraising, everything happens… online of course but also securely and confidentially, for a guaranteed "WOW" effect".
  4. You will get it right each time: when giving a traditional gift, chances are you may not choose the ideal gift: you do not want to offer something your colleague already has nor a gift that will not be useful to him or her. Last thing you want is for your gift to end up in an attic! With an online money pool, the person you wish to spoil will be able to indulge in something they truly like.

What exactly is a farewell party?

The farewell party or a going-away party is a well-established tradition in the professional world. It's an opportunity for employees to get together and share a convivial, even festive moment to celebrate the departure of a team member. It usually takes place in the office at the end of the day, after work. It starts calmly at work, with a few drinks and snacks. It's an opportunity to hand over the farewell money pool to the person leaving the company. In some cases, speeches are made to celebrate the departing employee. It's up to the departing employee to give a speech recounting his or her career with the company. This festive moment is an opportunity to say goodbye to a person who has contributed to the life of the company, or who was even a pillar of the team. This farewell drink marks the respect and friendship that binds you together. And if your colleague is a close friend, you can expect to celebrate this departure well into the night. In fact, you're free to extend this moment outside the office, whether in a bar, restaurant or nightclub - it all depends on the atmosphere!

Goodbye gift for coworkers: looking for an idea?

With the money that was raised for the farewell party, you can also decide to buy the gift(s) yourself. What is most important here is to choose a gift that matches your colleague's interests and personality. You can even get in touch with your colleague's family or partner to share your ideas and get their input. You'll then have the best chance of making the right choice!

If you are on the lookout for ideas, here are a few:

Books: What if this was the opportunity to offer the missing piece to complete a collection of your colleague’s favorite author or comic? A gift with a personal touch that will surely warm your peer's heart!

Gift boxes: there are now many gift box options available in the market. You can even personalize depending on the amount you raise. Getaways, Facial treatments, courses, workshops: a gift box exists to match every taste and every budget.

Subscriptions: give your colleague a subscription to their favorite magazine, gym, theater, streaming service... You're spoilt for choice when it comes to making them happy.

Experience: surprise your office friend with a unique experience such as a fine dining experience, a show, a massage at a luxury spa... An opportunity to make their dream come true and spoil them with something they would not have dared to buy themselves. And if your budget allows it, offer an experience for 2 people: an experience is even more meaningful when shared.

An extravagant gift: if you are sure you know your colleague's taste, you can also opt for the gift of their dream such as a watch, a piece of jewelry, a handbag, the latest cell phone or tablet... Keep in mind that you need to stick to your colleague’s specific preference, when buying such personal gifts, it’s all a matter of taste!

Contribute to a personal project: has your colleague shared his or her involvement in a personal project, an organization, a cause, a sport... You can decide to organize a fundraiser on their behalf and contribute to a cause that is close to his or her heart.

Why give a colleague a going-away gift?

There's no obligation to celebrate a colleague's departure. It's up to you! It all depends on your company's culture and the history that binds the employee to the company. However, celebrating his or her departure with a gift is a great way of showing how much he or she was appreciated within the team. Whether out of respect for his or her career, appreciation for the work done, friendship... It's a positive gesture that will please everyone in the company. And given the amount of time we spend at work, it's important to cherish the good moments shared together.
