It is hard to say goodbye, but it is even harder to say goodbye to a loved one who’s moving away permanently. Whether they’re relocating to a new town or a new country altogether, you wish them well, but deep down you know the close-knit relationship you had, won’t be the same again. But simply because you hate to see them leave doesn’t mean you say Adios from your bedroom window. If anything, surprise them with a going-away gift so they can have something to look at, and remember you fondly. 

Best Mates Mug

Does your friend love waking up to a hot cup of coffee? Would they rather give up everything than that hot cup of chocolate they take every evening? If your answer to either of the questions is yes, then this best mates mug would make a perfect going away gift. It’ll remind them of you every time they take a sip from it. 

You can have it personalized with anything you feel fits your friend’s personality, words, or phrases unique to your friendship or a unique quote. For instance, quotes like “every end is a new beginning” and “the adventure begins” would be perfect on a going away mug gift. 

Peas in a Pod Bracelet

It’s difficult to watch someone who you’ve been so close to moving to another town or country. But life happens, and there’s nothing we can do but roll with the punches. That being said, if the person moving away is your ride and die best friend or family member, the peapod necklace would make an excellent going away gift. 

It symbolizes togetherness and kinship and is a great way to remind your friend that regardless of how far apart you’ll be, the two of you are like two peas in a pod, that is; you boast a lifelong connection. 

The Life, Love, Travel Pillow

Looking to make your best friend’s journey to wherever they are moving a bit easier? Want to gift your bestie with something they can hug or cuddle whenever they miss you or feeling homesick? Then the life, love pillow makes the perfect fit. It’s a practical gift, so you don’t have to worry about it ending up in the pile of untouched gifts. 

The “life takes us to different places; love takes us home” quote makes it even more meaningful, especially because your friend is moving away permanently. But again, you can always have it personalized with messages you think suit the situation best. Quotes such as “it’s not that far” or “hug this pillow until you can hug me” are excellent. 

Dual Time Zone Watch 

Want to keep your relationship with your friend who’s moving away alive? Communicate frequently! Unfortunately, if they’re moving to a new time zone, this is often easier said than done due to the conflicting time zones. In light of that, another thoughtful gift would be a time zone watch. Just a glance at it, and they’ll determine whether it’s a good time to call. It pays to get one for yourself too.

A going-away gift doesn’t have to be extravagant but just sentimental. It could be something as simple as a friendship bracelet, or something practical like a pillow. Make your loved one’s relocation less difficult by getting them the perfect going away gift at Say it with a gift
