One of the most important milestones in adult life is retirement. It can be a daunting step in any adult’s journey, often treated like a rebirth into a new world. And while the colleague you know who’s finally retiring will surely be missed in the workplace, it would make them feel immensely more confident if you gave them a retirement present.

Retirement allows a person time to do more of what they want, in addition to spending more time with their loved ones, so keep this in mind when you think of sending that funny greeting card to send them on their way.

For the rest of this article, we are going to talk about a few wonderful presents to go with hilarious greeting cards for someone who’s about to retire. Read on for this information.


  1. A personalised mug

Mugs are a common sight in the workplace, but a personalised mug with either a touching message, a funny joke, their name, or all of the above can brighten their mood whenever they go for that hot cup of coffee at home.


  1. Trick business cards

Business cards with funny jokes printed on them are sure to brighten the day of both the giver and the recipient. The retiree could hand out these business cards as a joke, to family, friends, and so on. They could have “Couch potato!” as the job description, or they could have hilarious messages they could send out in appropriate moments.

Whatever the case may be, this is sure to give many a laugh to any retiree.


  1. Alcoholic drinks with personalised labels

Wine, scotch, or whisky are great congratulatory presents for any occasion, and retirement parties are no exception to this rule. A pack of craft beers is also appropriate depending on the preferences of the retiring person. They may choose to open these bottles now, or perhaps save them for a better day. Whatever the case may be, your gift is sure to bring a smile to the face of your friend especially if paired with a greeting card.


  1. Adult colouring books

Adult colouring books and crayons are a wonderful way to throw back your retiring friend to the days of their youth. Not only can this stir their creative juices in their downtime, it can help them maintain their motor skills especially if they are much older. And the great thing about adult colouring books is that they come in numerous themes. There’s likely a theme out there that’s perfect for the retiree.


  1. A travel planner

What better way to send them off into retirement than with a planner to fill with all their travel, food sampling, and hobby plans outside of work. This is a great way to remind them that their life is theirs to control from here on out. And with a memorable message on an adorable greeting card, you might just touch their heart and make their journey all the sweeter.


In conclusion

Retirement opens up a whole new world of possibilities for anyone, and as such, it is important to wish someone well when they make that journey. After all, they deserve it after a life of hard work.
