Give a Congratulations Gift for a New Job

Whether it’s a promotion or moving onto something new, getting a new job calls for a celebration, and what better way to congratulate your work colleague than with a gift? It could be something practical, or just a gift that reminds them of all the friends they’ve made. If you’re looking for inspiration for a present, here’s a selection of the best options to say congratulations for getting that new job.


Help them kit out their new desk with brand-new stationery. From stylish notebooks and stunning fountain pens to handy office tidies and practical memo holders, you’ll find a whole host of options to choose from. Paperchase at the Mall of the Emirates is home to a fantastic range of stationery, whether you’re after elegant pens or diaries with bold designs.

Leather goods

If you want to buy a smart congratulations gift, you could think about buying elegant leather goods. For example, a leather wallet for a man will always be a practical choice, especially if you get it personalised with their initials. For a female work colleague, a sophisticated leather handbag will never go out of fashion. See what’s on offer at Tumi at City Centre Mirdif for some elegant bags that pick up on the latest trends from the European catwalks. Depending on how formal their working environment is, you could even consider treating them to a leather briefcase

If you want to go all out, you could treat them to a brand-new watch to celebrate their achievement. It’s a big purchase, so take the time to think about their style, which will suit them the most, and how formal their working environment will be. If they work in the creative industries, how about bright design from Swiss makers Swatch? Or if you’re looking for a timeless timepiece for a corporate environment, a watch from Cartier and Rolex are guaranteed to satisfy. See what’s on offer at high-end stores such as Jewel Corner at City Centre Deira

Mall gift cards – a great alternative

If you’re having trouble deciding on the perfect gift to say congratulations for a new job, why not give them a Mall gift card? Treating them to a gift card is always a good idea; that way, they’ll have the chance to pick something for themselves and have the opportunity to treat themselves to a day at one of the UAE’s most exceptional shopping experiences. A Mall gift card lets you say ‘well done’ in style, and they’ll be able to spend it as they wish in any of our City Centres or at the Mall of the Emirates.
