There are millions of people in the baby boomer generation ready to retire. Are you ready? Give your retiring employees a fun retirement gift and they'll be on their way to a life filled with relaxation, entertainment, travel, indulgence, reading, and enjoyment. Office Playground's selection of retirement gifts definitely fulfill a few of these aspects of retirement.
Why give retirement gifts?
Managers, CEOs, and coworkers may want to celebrate their employee or coworker's retirement. With the retirement day fast approaching, a coworker may want to give a retiring coworker a retirement gift out of sentiment, kindness, or due to a friendship. Managers and company owners may give retirement gifts for similar reasons, but things like company culture and employee retention also come into play. If a manager gives a retirement gift of office toys, it shows a fun and upbeat company culture. If the gift is well thought out, retirement gifts show other employees that their managers actually care! (We could touch on how this increases employee motivation, but that's another topic.)
Retirement Themed Gifts
|| MY RETIREMENT COUNTDOWN TIMER
For the employee who recently announced their retirement and still has a couple weeks to go, give the 'My Retirement Countdown Timer'. Pre-retirees will look forward to seeing their countdown until retirement down to the last second.
What are a retiree's favorite type of candy? Answer: Retire Mints! Retire Mints will add a burst of minty freshness to your retiring employee's day.
||RETIRED PARKING PERMIT
Once an employee retires, make it official with the Retired Parking Permit. This retirement bonus gives pass holders with the privilege to park anywhere they choose. (Of course, the Retired Parking Permit is a novelty item and it does not actually provide the freedom to park anywhere.)
Depending on the retiree's interests, you could assemble a care package full of goodies related to their favorite hobby. Here are a handful of hobby related categories (just to name a few):
After a lifetime of hard work, celebrate your retiree's final days of work with pampering office health toys. Your employee or coworker will appreciate head massagers, hand massagers, and hot/cold packs. But, don't think that hot/cold packs are just for injuries and tired muscles: retirees can simply enjoy the relaxing warmth of a heated hot pack anytime they so desire.
If your retiree has a great sense of humor and if you think he/she would laugh at a few jokes related to getting older, then a selection of Gag Gifts & Toys could make an entertaining retirement gift. Here, we can start out with a few of our favorite old age gag gifts, and check out the Gag Gifts category for more ideas.
Now, you have a wide variety of retirement gift ideas for your employees and coworkers. Share your thoughts: what kinds of retirement gifts would you enjoy?
