Personalized gifts have long been the go-to solution for company bosses who are looking for retirement gift ideas. A personalized retirement gift demonstrates that you know (and appreciate) your employee and what contributions they have made. If you’re sold on the idea of getting something more personal for your employee, but don’t know where to start, relax. The following five retirement gift ideas should get you started on your gift-buying quest.
The U.S. News and World Report points out that many retirees have extensive travel plans. These retires-turned-travelers have been waiting to have the time to make them happen. For them, personalized travel gifts are where it’s at. These gifts could include personalized luggage and luggage tags, travel journals, and passport holders.
It’s also possible to add a few extras to these personalized gifts by tucking a gift card or even plane tickets into one of the pockets. Finally, to add more personal touches, why not take some photos of the retiree’s office-mates and put them in the front of the travel journal? It’s a nice symbolic way for the retiree’s co-workers to send them off.
