Retirement is that time in one's life when she retires from the working world. Most of the time when a person has worked with her coworkers for some time the coworkers will throw a retirement party for her. It is normal to give gag gifts at this type of party to keep the party fun spirited and enjoyable.
Fortune Teller Gag Book
Make a fortuneteller gag gift book for the lucky woman who is retiring. The idea is to make up funny fortunes about things that will happen in the retirement years. Each person in the office can contribute one or more fortunes for the retiree. Make the fortunes pertinent to the retiree and pertinent to events that happen in retirement, such as getting on Social Security, but put a funny twist on it. For example, you could say, a large sum of money will come your way. The sender's name is Uncle Sam. Put someone in charge of printing the fortunes out and then putting them in a binder with Your Retirement Fortunes as the title.
Take one of the office chairs and decorate it as a throne. Buy a toy crown or tiara to give as the gag gift. During the party present the retiree with her crown, lead her to her throne, and pronounce her the retirement queen. Insist on a speech delivered from her throne. For a twist, each person can stand up first one at a time and give a toast or roast to the retirement queen before she gives her speech.
Buy novelty items (see References below) such as a wall plaque, coffee mug or other item with a cute saying about retirement. Personalize your gag gift with the retiree's name where applicable. A twist on this one is to wrap up office supplies such as a pack of paper clips and present these presents to her. You can say something like, just want to make sure you won't run out of supplies now that you are retired.
