Retiring must kick up a mixture of emotions. Those final few days in the office have to feel rather weird, knowing that after years plugging away, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. At the same time, however, emptying your desk, bagging up the retirement gifts and having the farewell pint all have a very ‘final’ vibe about them.
Most of the GoneDigging crew are 30 or 40-odd years from retirement. And yet this prospect is both exciting and scary at the same time. On the one hand, the idea of kissing goodbye to early starts and the daily commute can only be a good thing. The thought of having time to write a novel, get a dog or tend to the garden is also entirely appealing. Then again, give it 30 years and will we even be entitled to a state pension of any note? Probably not. And making sure you don’t get bored is a biggie, too. It’s all quite daunting but, we’d imagine, pretty darned nice as well.
Anyhoos, here’s the point. At GoneDigging we’re all about the love. So if you know someone who’s hanging up their boots, so to speak, we’ve got loads of personalised retirement gifts to help ease them into a life of leisure. Booze always goes down a treat and we’ve got plenty of that in the form of wine, Champers, cognac, vodka and whisky that you can personalise with a label that includes your retiree’s name and a message. Failing that, you can also engrave glasses and customise mugs, calendars and diaries.
And remember, what we’ve got here is just the tip of the iceberg, so get online and take a look at our retirement gifts for yourself. Go on, you know you want to. We won’t tell.
