Personalised Retirement Gift Ideas
After a lifetime of living the “nine to five” regime, it’s time to say, “Good-bye tension, hello pension.” That lucky retiree has entered the everlasting coffee break experience. It’s au revoir to horrible bosses and bonjour to nonstop lie-ins, breakfast in bed and – in general – adhering to the new rule that is, quite simply: chilling out.
It’s the beginning of the golden years, time to put their feet up and take life at their own pace. It’s when they stop lying about their age and start lying around the house.
So, for all those newbies to retirement out there, we’ve compiled a cracking collection of personalised retirement gifts to welcome them into emancipating freedom. What makes our retirement gifts for men and women stand out is the fact you get to add the retiree’s name to your gift along with a cheeky farewell message of your own.
As for retirement gift ideas, we’ve got mountains! Whatever you choose, our retirement gift range offers both a modern twist with classical nature – the perfect way to send them into the new chapter in their life in style.
One of the best retirement gifts you could give would be our This is Your Life Newspaper Book. You can choose up to ten newspapers from important dates in his or her life to create a gorgeous hardback book they won’t forget in a hurry.
The obvious cliché is golf – but if your dad or hubby adores the game, then buying them a pass to the local course or lessons with a pro would make ‘em smile from ear-to-ear. Combine it with a new engraved golf putter in a presentation box to make the day extra special. Just don't complain about the argyle, it comes as part of the deal, unfortunately. Smiley face.
We’re not short in the funny retirement gifts department either. If your soon-to-be retiree’s a bit of a standup comedian, our spoof newspaper – featuring them in the headlines as the new retiree – will be sure to raise a laugh or two... even the Big Boss himself would love it.
Engraved Trinket Boxes make uber thoughtful, affectionate retirement gifts for women – you can have the lid engraved with her name along with a special message. If that doesn’t quite cut it, why not treat the retiree to a gift experience day? Send them off on a vineyard tour, a trip to Harrods for tea or even a spot of dolphin and whale watching.
We also have an incredibly yummy collection of retirement gift ideas for men and women – our delicious Gourmet Food Hampers being one of them. Each wicker basket is filled with a scrumptious selection of goodies, from chocolate to olives plus a bottle of their favourite tipple, be it red wine, white wine, whisky or champers.
Tea and coffee addicts will fall head over heels with our personalised tea and coffee gifts. And let’s be honest. There’s nothing like a good ‘ole bottle of bubbly to get them moving into the slow lane, right? Especially one that’s personalised with their name, a personal farewell message, the date they started work and the date they retired on the label. They can enjoy a glass over dinner or a bottle to begin the retirement shindig!
