5 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Retirement Gift

Jessica Jones

Choosing a retirement gift can be a challenge, you want to give a meaningful gift the retiree will enjoy without breaking the bank. Not sure how to pick out the perfect gift that shows the recipient how much they mean to you, we have a couple of tips to help you pick the right gift.

Group Gifts

Group gifts are a great way to get something big without spending a ton of money. You could pool Flatterbox for Father's Daytogether and get a big gift like a trip or you could opt for a smaller gift that shows the recipient how much they mean to everyone. Flatterbox  is a great gift option that collects how much the retiree means to family and friends and packages them ready to gift.


Instead of a gift consider giving the new retiree an experience. They will have a lot more time on their hands so consider gifting them something to do in that time like a painting class or wine tasting.


Does the retiree have a hobby? Consider gifting them something related to their hobby. This could be something small like personalized tees and balls for the golf enthusiast.


If the retiree is a giver they may appreciate a donation to their favorite charity, this is another gift you could pool together for and make a big donation somewhere.


If you are particularly close to the retiree consider a sentimental gift that shows how much they mean to you and how proud you are of them for all their years of service. Some great options include a memory book, memory quilt or get everyone involved and gift them a Flatterbox full of sentiments from all the party invites (great way to include those who couldn’t make it to the party).
