Retirement Gifts Ideas – Special Gifts They’ll Really Use

Posted by Kyle Design on June 4, 2008

This is a busy time of year for us here at Kyle Design – from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, with graduations and retirements in between. For those of you looking for something truly nice yet affordable for the retirement of a special colleague, employee, coworker or staff member, we may have what you’re looking for.

Artistic Wooden Box with Education DesignElegant Wooden Box – Among our most popular items for retiring professionals, whether teachers, lawyers, doctors, etc., are these beautiful wood boxes customized with design and background color accent of choice. They also may have a plate engraved and placed inside the lid inscribed with thanks for their hard work and contributions to the company. These boxes are a lovely coffee table accent destined to become a topic of conversation – the type of item the recipient will be proud to discuss (and will be happy for the opportunity to do so). Perfect size for keys, loose change, rings and jewelry as well. Pictured is the Education Themed Box, but these boxes may be ordered in one of nearly 300 images to suit every industry or interest by visiting our page Custom Wooden Boxes in Artistic Designs.

Engravable Retirement Bookmarks in Gold or Silver with Sunset DesignEngraved Bookmarks – A bookmark is a smaller yet useful gift that will be a constant reminder of those friends and coworkers who miss them. We have room for three lines of text, about 14 characters in each. An affordable choice when there are many people you’d like to acknowledge. A bookmark is a practical choice now that the retiring individual will have time to catch up on their reading. We show the Sunset Bookmark here, but it may be ordered in 100s of patterns – golf, knitting, cruise ship, professional symbols and more by clicking Engraved Personalized Bookmarks in Gold or Silver.

Palm Tree Holiday OrnamentCelebration Ornaments – After retiring, do they plan to travel? If so, a tropical Palm Trees ornament is a wonderful way to send them off as they embark on a new phase of life. These celebration ornaments can be placed on a Christmas tree or in a window as a reminder that the gang at work is wishing them smooth sailing. A wonderful way to mark an important event or milestone in someone’s life. Again, we have many patterns and shapes, both in silver or gold, all of which may be engraved, so just visit Celebration Ornaments to see other styles.

Photo Brag Books with Unique DesignsPhoto Wallets – Another good idea for someone who is about to retire is a wallet for holding photographs. These cases hold up to 12 photographs in a slim metal case that fits easily in a purse or pocket, or propped open on a desk. They make an especially nice gift when you include a group shot of the coworkers or former students who will be thinking of them. Or the individual receiving them can fill the case with a few of their travel photos to share when they come back to visit. Easily engraved on the back with plenty of room to thank them for their dedication and service through the years.

Metal Wallets for Two Sets of Business Cards - Available in Silver or Gold with Stylish DesignsSecond Career Business Card Holder – Perhaps this particular person is only retiring from one field in order to start a second career in another field they feel passionate about. We have these striking credit card wallets with clips inside for two sets of business cards (ones from the profession they are leaving along with cards for their new business). They also work great for those who hand out and collect many cards at one time – yours on side, those received on the other.

Kyle Design offers many other unique options to show appreciation to someone retiring on our Unique Retirement Gifts in Artistic Design page. We do all our own engraving in house and can quickly create your custom gift for fast shipping. We’ve been creating our special gifts for over 25 years, so if you’re looking for something special yet affordable from a reliable company, please be sure the check us out.
