Are retirement gifts a requirement?

No, they are not, but it is a thoughtful way to show appreciation and love to that person in your life that has worked really hard for many years and is now about to start a new chapter of her life. 

Can I give cash to a retiree as a gift?

Yes, you can but try to get creative on how you give your retiree the cash.

A gift should always be meaningful so try to put the money as a gift card in an envelope or a small decorated box with a personalized retirement card. 

Should you bring a gift to a retirement party?

Yes definitely! It is customary to bring a gift to the party.

The gift does not have to be something expensive or fancy. The size of the gift does not matter.

It can be something simple. The only thing that matters is that you give it from the heart. 

How do I find the “perfect” gift for a retired person?

This is probably the first and most important question to ask yourself when looking for a gift.

Honestly, it really comes down to the “taste”, “personality” and hobbies of the person you want to celebrate.

The first thing you want to do is create a list of things your retiree is interested in and use that to brainstorm the type of gifts that would be a good fit for her.

After that, you might what to ask around and find out exactly about her retirement plans.

Does she plan to go abroad? Relocate to another city? or Pick up a new hobby?

Knowing that information will help shorten your list of gift ideas and help you choose a useful gift for her.

  • Special Drinking Station

Cocktails and mocktails are a MUST during this special day. Create a fun drinking bar with beautiful matching glasses or tumblers with fun retirement messages. You can also purchase insulated can sleeves with printed logos for canned drinks. The cool thing about investing in these personalized designs is that your guests will be able to take them home as souvenirs from the party.
