Retirement is an important milestone in man's life, which brings a mix of emotions. It is a time when all the pressures and stresses of work are released and he can take time to relax. With a few creative ideas, you can give him a unique gift he can treasure through all years of his retirement.
A framed caricature is a unique and comical gift, which is an ideal keepsake for a man heading into retirement. It portrays the life journey, hobbies, interests and even the quirks of the retiree in an amusing way. All you need is a photo of him and you can have a caricature specially made and framed. Choose a photo you think reflects his personality -- and maybe even his interests and hobbies.
A new retiree will have a lot of spare time on his hands, and giving him a one-of-a-kind gift certificate gives him something special to look forward to and provides him with memories he will never forget. Choose a gift certificate for something he has always wanted to do, that he has always been too afraid to put himself up for or just that you know he will love. Choose something that he would love to do, such as wolf watching, taking a private tour on a fire engine or riding in a hot air balloon. Be creative and select a gift certificate which you think will suit his personality.
There are few gifts as unique as a personalized item, and it can make for a memorable retirement gift. You can engrave an item with a message of your choice or personalize it with his name, a fascinating fact and the date of his retirement. Choose a good quality item to personalize, such as a silver pocket watch, a marble clock or a marble keepsake. If he is your boss, a photo of him in a frame engraved with his name and personalized with the signatures of all his colleagues can be a great gift idea.
Antique Map Reproduction
If he loves unusual antiques, an antique map reproduction can be excellent retirement gift idea. He can hang this unique item on his wall and be reminded of your thoughtfulness and appreciation every time he sees it. You can either give him a map of the world, or choose a map of an area that has sentimental value for him or that has particular interest to him. For example, if he loves to travel in Germany, a map of Germany or of Europe could be ideal.
