Do you know anyone starting a new job?  My sister-in-law recently accepted a job to re-enter the work force after many years of being at home.  I thought it would be fun to recognize this life change for her with a little gift.  Here is what I did for my sister-in-law as well as some other ideas you could use for anyone starting a new job:







A lunch bag – I typed a tag and tied it onto an insulated lunch bag (I found this lunch bag at Wal-mart).  The tag said:

Congratulations on your new job!  I want to “take you to lunch” every work day.  Here’s something to help you “bring home the bacon.”

Congratulations wine glass

Congratulations wine glass stuffed with a piece of colored tissue and a bag of confetti. You could add a tag on this that says "Cheers on your new job!" I tucked this inside the lunch bag.

Hi HO Hi HO tag

Hi-HO Hi-Ho It's off to work you go. Congratulations on your new job! (Two Hostess Ho Ho cakes wrapped up in a cellophane bag were also tucked inside the lunch bag.)

Perfume = You will be SCENTsational in your new position at (name of company).  Congratulations!
Starbucks gift card = I wanted to PERCOLATE up some congratulations on your new job. Hope this helps you to get your first day started with a JOLT as (name of job).  Your new boss will have a LATTE good things to say about your great work.  You will be a shining STAR in your new position as (name of job) and making the big BUCKS before you know it! Way to go!
Candle = You will SHINE in your new position as (type of job) because no one can HOLD A CANDLE to you.  Work hard but be sure not to BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS in your new job.
Calculator = Because you are one talented lady, I CALCULATE great things will happen for you as (name of position at name of company).
Nail Polish = You are always so POLISHED and professional.  You are sure to be noticed in your new position at (name of company). Go get ‘em!
Nail File = I wanted to help you with all your FILING so you don’t get behind at the office.
Hand Lotion = I wanted to give you a HAND at work.
Lunch Gift Card = I wanted to TAKE YOU TO LUNCH.  Have a great first day of work!
