Make Your Retirement Gifts Humourous.

Retirement Gag Gift Ideas.

Is it a good idea to make your Retirement gifts humourous?

I certainly think so! I know I’ve written elsewhere that retirement was potentially one of life’s most difficult transitions - but hey ... lighten up!

A humorous retirement gift can add sparkle to a retirement party, or other retirement function. Choose a gift that suits the retiree, the audience, and the occasion, and will not give offence.

The gift may poke fun at the recipient in a good natured way, but when in doubt about how the retiree may react, err on the side of caution.

Some gifts require a degree of familiarity. That gag gift from a best mate about that great weekend, when ye were young, may not be amusing to a partner!

A funny retirement gift is a great way to celebrate with laughter a transition that also involves emotion and retirement sentiments.

Here are some great retirement gag gift ideas to get you started:
  • Inflatable walker

  • Hair re-grow kit

  • Anti-nagging ear plugs

  • ‘I’m retired’ and other gags t-shirt

  • Retirement Bingo kit

  • Senior Moments memory mints

  • Retired business card-‘don’t call me, I’ll call you.’
