Retirement is a huge milestone in the life of today’s workers. This is the time to celebrate his achievements and life’s work while looking towards life’s next big adventure. 

Choosing the best retirement gifts for men

In the past, retirement typically happened around the age of 65. Nowadays, retirement is entirely dependent on personal and financial circumstances. While retirement can seem like a blessing and the worries of work are over, it can be overwhelming and lead to some negative side-effects like boredom, despondency, and lack of structure. It’s important to stay engaged when you retire, both physically, mentally, and socially. When buying gifts for someone in retirement, you can either go the traditional route or you can find items that stimulate and encourage said engagement.

Traditionally, gold watches and plaques engraved with the name of the company were gifts given to retirees. That tradition originates back to the 1940s, whereby the company would essentially be saying “you gave us your time, we’re giving it back to you.” Nowadays, that tradition has been pushed back with the invention of smartphones and watches. A gold watch is considered an elegant novelty but is also timeless. 

The best retirement gifts are ones that show appreciation for his hard work. Yes, sometimes an engraved plaque can do just that. But other ideas include things that will enhance his retirement experience and help him re-navigate his life post-work. Think of his personality and interests. Is he humorous? Will he appreciate a gag gift? Is he an outdoor person and needs new, expensive hiking boots? Personalized gifts are great because it shows you’ve taken note of his individuality.

Tips for buying the best retirement gifts for men

  1. It doesn’t have to be traditional
    You don’t have to splurge on a fancy watch or plaque for his retirement gift. Sometimes, something valuable could just be an item that adheres to his interests and that he’s wanted for a while. Think of what he wants to invest his time in now and make your choice based on that.
  2. Find something that enhances his life
    During retirement, it’s all about taking time to enjoy the little moments and find contentment in every aspect of life. When choosing his gift, find things that will elevate his personal experiences, whether it’s shaving, taking a shower or simply enjoying the finest whisky. 
  3. Don’t be afraid of humor
    If it’s his thing, don’t shy away from the humorous gifts. If he’s the more serious type, select carefully. Sometimes a bit of light-heartedness can make an overwhelming situation seem less so.
