Jobs, particularly new jobs are being discussed quite a lot at the moment. This, in case you didn’t know, is down to COVID-19 and the current lockdown, with many wondering what jobs will be available afterwards. That being said, many businesses are creating lots of new jobs post-lockdown, so, things could be looking up for the job market.

However, this brings up a particular question – what do you buy someone who’s just got a new job?
Well, if your friend or loved one does get a new job and you want to get them something nice, you’ll find a list of ideas below to help you out.
From chocolates to toffees and even a basket filled with sugary sweets, these types of gifts are always a winner, because, after all, everyone loves the sweeter things in life. Of course, if you know someone who likes things a little more savoury, how about a cheese board?
Another winning option, if the person you know loves a glass of red or white you can always grab them a bottle of their favourite tipple. Or, you could buy them something extra special and pricey to try.
Who doesn’t love a wonderful bunch of flowers? Not many people, which is what makes flowers a wonderful gift to receive. And, with so many shops doing wonderful bunches for fabulous prices and multiple online services delivering them, you’ll be spoilt for choice here.
If they’re going to be busy at their new job, a journal is a great idea as it’ll help them to keep track of their time and plans, making sure they never miss a meeting. Go a step further by getting them one that’s personalised with their name for that extra special touch.
Expanding on the above, you could grab them some new pens, highlighters are something along these lines to help them out at their new job. Of course, most jobs provide stationery, but there’s nothing quite like your own fancy pen to make you smile while getting the job done.
If you want to go all out when it comes to getting that new job gift, what about a watch? An excellent item that they’ll have for life, this will be with them throughout the day and week and will ensure that they’re always on time and won’t have to scramble around for their phone to find out how long it is until their next meeting.
Excellent gifts here! I’d also suggest an insulated travel mug. I can’t do without my tea haha. I could really do with someone getting me a watch though. I seem to run 5-10 minutes later than everyone else.

Very good idea!
What a lovely idea. I guess I haven’t known anyone that has started a new job in a while but I will keep this in mind for the next time a friend does!
Thank you ☺️
Great list here! My friend has been in and out of jobs lately so it’s nice to have a variety of choices. Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome 🙂
Love the ideas. This was very timely as my dear friend is starting a new job this week. I got her a #GirlBoss mug filled with chocolate kisses.
Oooh that’s a great gift!
What great ideas! A lot of my friends are applying to jobs at the moment and starting new ventures so I’ll be sure to get them stationery or chocolates as a congratulations. It’s always the little gestures with these things, such a brilliant list of ideas
Little gestures like that really do make all the difference!
this si so sweet! getting someone a new job gift is so personal and thougful!!
I know – it makes all the difference!
Great ideas Jenny, I would love all of these. x

Thank you 🙂
Totally would appreciate any of these gifts if ever I got accepted in a new job! Thanks for coming up with this list x
Same! Those small gestures make a world of difference!
What great gift ideas! They are all so thoughtful. When I started my apprenticeship, I was gifted some flowers and chocolates. It’s a small gesture but I loved it! Making a stationary bundle would be a dream for me! I think it’ll be a cute gift for those starting an office job or similar
These are all great prezzies to get someone! You can’t go wrong with a bit of stationery or even wine! A really meaningful card goes well with them too!
Thanks for sharing!
It sure does!
New stationery is my all time favourite. Can’t beat it 🙌 xxx
New stationary is my absolute go to gift for my female friends but certainly with a new job. In fact this week I am off shopping for new stuff for the new school year, I can’t possible use last years stuff! Lol
Flowers are a wonderful gift, If I could bottle the feeling I get when someone buys me flowers I reckon I’d be a rich woman.
Great ideas Jenny x
Awh that’s lovely. You know I’ve never been gifted flowers? Only from brands who have sent me them to review!
What?!?! It really is the best feeling! To be fair most of the tile I buy them for myself, not delivered of course. You need to get the man to rectify this x
Love that there are gift options for those with new jobs. I am big on alcohol or even office supplies that may brighten their day. Thanks for sharing!

Those are great ideas 🙂
Some lovely ideas here! I tend to buy someone flowers when they get a new job – depending on who the person is and if I know they’ll appreciate them though – but if it was me and someone got me a bunch of flowers I’d find it lovely! xx
Oh same. I don’t think I’ve ever received flowers actually!
Its Really Kind and Sweet Ideas… <3 <3 🙂
Great ideas, Jen. Especially at the moment when more people will be starting new jobs.
Thank you ☺️
Oh, I adore this!! Once a few of my friends start to make their big career moves, I think I’m gonna have to come back to this post for ideas and inspiration to give them something that will nicely commemorate and celebrate their newfound success xx
Awh that’s so nice of you!
Thanks for sharing, these ideas are great, I would like a bottle of wine or fizz to celebrate the fact I have a job that I was finally happy about 🙂

Sounds perfect x
I am a total sucker for stationery. That is always a great gift for someone like me. And chocolate. Oh, the wine also. I’m now feeling a gift basket vibe apparently.
Haha definitely all great ideas!
This is such a thoughtful list… Any of these kind gestures would be so appreciated. 🙂
They really would because getting a new job is a big deal!
This is a sweet list of ideas! 🙂
What a creative post! I have some friends getting new jobs so thanks for sharing!
Congrats to them!
