It can be difficult to think of a gift ideas for retirement,
especially when after most of a lifetime, the person retiring is likely
to have almost everything they want or need!
It's a case of retirement gift ideas for someone who might have
everything, or at least has entered a reflective stage of their lives
and may think that retirement gifts are unnecessary.
So what to do?
Best of all,
you could get them something that honours their time in the work place
such as a scrapbook, with photos of places as well as people, and signed
captions by the others in the workplace.
Add a humorous twist by posing the retiree's work mug/pot plant/effigy in some newer 'set-up' photos, to show how much that item is enjoying retirement already.
If you want to go more up-market, it's best to organise amongst a large group to get an experience, such as a holiday, hot air balloon ride, fishing charter, or tickets and accomodation to a special event. Try to be generous and include another person to go with them!
