Send your friends on their next adventure with a thoughtful going away gift and our printable friendship gift tags.
Best Going Away Presents
Last month I said goodbye to a friend and her family who were moving out of state. I hate goodbyes, but I know this was a great move for her family and I am hopeful our paths will cross again in the future.
As a going-away present for my friend, I designed a printable gift tag that I wrapped in ribbon with a bag of her favorite candies, and I included a handwritten note. It wasn’t a grand gesture, but most of the time there is beauty in simplicity, don’t you think?
If you’re looking for a simple way to tell a friend goodbye, this thoughtful idea is absolutely perfect!
It’s generic enough to give to a neighbor or coworker, but sentimental enough for that special friend or family member heading to a new job, a new home, a new city, or on a new adventure. It’s also something that doesn’t take up a lot of room in their moving truck, which I am sure is much appreciated!
This idea is also totally adaptable and can be as inexpensive as you need it to be!
