Retirement Gift for Spouse, Parents, Children of Retiree

Recommended Posts

Not a very exciting thread I'm sure!  What do folks get their family members when they retire? Everyone does flowers at the ceremony and I'm guessing it is like a funeral at the house with many sets of flowers for all the woman-folk... I know it is not typically a time to celebrate them, but I'd like to make this as much of a day for at least my immediate family as I feel they have put up with a lot of sacrifices along the way.  Thoughts?

Obviously jewelry, but is there something that is a bit unique? Anything besides jewelry?

Kids are nearing or in teenage years.

Thanks!

Is there any place you guys have wanted to go over the last 20 years and never made it? I think a big trip to celebrate could be cool.

As lame as it sounds, I think if you put together a book of photos with you and the kids over your career and then inscribed it with something heartfelt would be a cool touch that they could keep.

Congrats on retirement!

We are doing a trip! But a photo book is a great idea...  Lot of work, but might be great.

I did find this Gem, for other folks looking:

Make a book (and can personalize each page and even a quasi-avatar for you and the spouse, and I believe kids)... definitely worth looking at.

I did one of these for my wife recently. Can confirm that it was a hit. Fairly easy to make too. Congrats on the retirement!
