But what type of gift do you get. If you know the person more personally
you may decide not to go with the normal retirement gifts of a watch -
which is pretty redundant. Isnít retirement a time when you stop looking
at the clock or worrying that youíre late for something!!! This is the
time for relaxation and no schedules! No limitations and no one to tell
you when or what to do! So, if you want to think out of the box, get
them something that they will use or enjoy during their retirement.
We thought that maybe we could help you make a decision of what to give
by putting together some suggestions. Of course we know how different
men and women are, so weíve separated them into two different pages to
help narrow down the choices. And then for those traditional gifts, like
the watch, which I guess you could write that they are receiving the
watch, personalized with the date of their retirement so they never have
to look at it again!! Just kidding! Many people receive watches on their
retirement and its a mementos occasion for them.
Gifts for Men - Need
a masculine gift for a male retiree? Something that they will enjoy
receiving? We hope to have your answer here.
Gifts for Women -
It is usually easier to pick out gifts for women, but sometimes we just
need a little assistance. Find your help here.
- If you want to give the retiree something to remember their retirement
by, personalizing a gift is probably the best way to go. We have
compiled some ideas for you here.
We can only hope that you will leave this page with something wonderful
in mind to get for the newly retiring person. Keep in mind there are
many creative gifts that you can make on your own if you are looking for
something more personal and less expensive. For example, get a nice
picture of the retiree or of the retiree and the staff he or she
commonly worked with and frame it using a signature matt. At the
retirement party, have those staff members or everyone who attends write
their congratulations on the matt around the picture. What a nice
remembrance gift to give them to remind them of their working days and
their party. And best of all, the cost factor is quite low
but the appreciation will be high!
