We have listed some presents that would be geared more towards men on
their retirement but keep in mind you may find one or two of these items

you could have personalized but not a very useful gift if your wishes are to sit back and relax!
Gift Basket - this is a great idea if you have some knowledge of his

add maps and books of places to see and stay.
Leather Passport Case - this is a nice way to say bon voyage and will
keep their passport nice and safe.
Cigars - If he likes smoking cigars, why not celebrate with him by
lighting up a celebratory cigar?
- This is a massage pad that sits over another seat that
gives massages and/or applies heat to back, neck and sometimes legs.

retirement: doormat, magnet, t-shirt, savings bank, plaque, clock, mug,
