Leaving present

My dear friend and colleague, Taz,  recently left and the 'usual' pool of money was collected for a great gift. I wanted to do something a bit more sentimental too.

Yes, it's that kind of team of people I work with ~ the ones that will gladly embarrass and encourage you to cry in front of a pub full of people at any opportunity.

That was the aim of the game.

I gathered together some random items.....

....and proceeded to write a poem (of sorts!)....

 1. Wispa bar 2. Star fridge magnet 3. body lotion with 'smile' on it 4. Anti-bacterial gel 5. photo pen

6. anti-wrinkle cream 7. Haribo 8. Tissues  9. 'shine' body lotion  10. Me to You bear

I wrapped each item up and numbered them. A simple gift that really didn't cost much at all but it took lots of effort and some time.


  1. beautiful , you are a wonderful friend

    1. I like to make my friends know that I'm thinking of them :)

  4. Wow, that's so sweet :-) Wish I had friends like you lol! #GoldenOldies

  6. Emily, I just live this idea, so creative and so personal. Great poem and live the little gifts :) thanks for linking up #GoldenOldies

  7. Awwwwww ! That’s such a delightful and loving gesture especially the poem and the gift wrapping. You could have tried out giving a gift of Botox Sheffield treatment to your friend.
