Updated July 19, 2017

Searching for the perfect gift for the police officer in your life who is retiring? From plaques to personalised trinkets, there are dozens of wonderful gift ideas that will not only welcome your loved one into retirement but also honour his law enforcement career.

Police Throw Blanket

The police throw blanket is a unique present that will make the occasion extra special. Made from 100 per cent cotton and woven into three layers, the blanket features a stunningly detailed collection of images, including a shield, police car and a Bible verse from the Book of John. The blanket is machine washable and measures about 48 inches by 69 inches. The blanket is available at Keepsakes-etc.'s website for £29.20 and will usually ship that same day.

Framing Achievement Large Double Medallion Certificate Frame

A more traditional gift for a police officer's retirement would certainly be a certificate frame. Available through Framing Achievement, the Large Double Medallion Certificate Frame features premium wood moulding and two 24 carat plated medallions. It has two certificate holders, one of which features a custom-picked image. There are three choices, including one specifically designed for police officers. The frame can be further personalised with the recipient's name, rank, department, date of retirement or other information. The Large Double Medallion Certificate Frame can be purchased through Framing Achievement for £129.90

Personalised Police Officer Picture Frame

A personalised picture frame from Gifts For You Now is another outstanding option. The frame measures 3/4 inches by 6 3/4 inches and can hold a 3 1/2 inch by 5 or 4 by 6 inch photo. Wall mountable or equipped with an easel back to be placed on a desk or other flat surface, the frame can be personalised with up to two lines of text and comes with large text reading "police officer" along the top of the frame. Personalisation is offered for free when purchased through the company's website. The personalised police officer picture is £12.90.
