Well we are here to help with this dilemma. We know how much people wish
to show their individuality and not be like everyone else. Why is it any
different with sending best wishes? So here are some options for you to
Send a gift basket. This can be a very nice way to say felicitation! You
can customize it to the retiree’s favourite things or interests. Some
examples are, coffee, teas, candy or chocolate golf, gardening, etc.
Send a card with lottery tickets in it. Your message can be something to
the terms of “Hope this helps make your retirement wishes come true!".
There are so many different scratch and win tickets out there you can
find one that peaks the retiree’s interest so that even if they don’t
win, they still had some fun playing the game!
Sending flowers are always a nice gesture. But having a bouquet made
with only the retiree’s favourite flowers is something not every thinks
of. Always make sure when buying a gift to get something that is about
them, not you!
Instead of getting them a gift, one can take him or her out for lunch or
dinner on you. It can just be the two of you or you can make it a
gathering of friends and co-workers.
Plan a retirement party for this retirement individual. Pick a theme
that is all about the retiree so that you know they will have a great
time at their party. This can be a very nice way to get everyone that
also wants to send their congrats can do so at the same time. This can
be the retiree’s one last farewell before stepping into their new role
as a retired person.
If you have a bunch of people getting together to buy one big retirement
gift, by not choose to send the retiree on a trip. It can be somewhere
big like Europe, Greece or even the Caribbean or somewhere less
expensive and far away as a nearby spa or resort for them to relax and
enjoy their first few days into retirement.
