  • For every job, there are tools of the trade. Find something that’s the perfect fit, from a cool iPad iBed to a stylish desk organiser or chic coffee machine stand.

  • Ensure they start their promotion on the right foot with gorgeous personalised leather. Choose the latest travel accessories, overnight luggage or messenger bag. 

  • Find something inspiring to bring luck and positivity to their new role. Uplifting books, travel journals, wall art or even a climate clock, are all super ideas. 

  • For wackier loved ones, it’s fun to add a little quirkiness. Perpetual calendar cubes, Mensa genius tests or a daily desk plaque are sure to make them grin every day.
