Retirement is a very special occasion, so if you are giving a gift to someone in celebration of this happy time in life, why not give this person a special gift. A retirement gift that is different than what is normally given will be long remembered and cherished. Unusual retirement gifts can be difficult to find, but worth it when you find a retirement gift the recipient will be happy with.
Unusual Retirement Gifts for Men
For some men retirement means spending more time on the golf course. A golfer who is retiring may not need another golf club, but a golf club that holds and serves beverages may be an unusual gift he can use. If the retiree likes to sail, consider giving him a tote bag made from the sails of a boat. A pocket watch attached to a chain is a common retirement gift for a man, but a pocket watch he can put in his pocket or display on his desk is something out of the norm. Other unusual retirement gifts include a letter opener with a handle made of 1,000-year-old oak, bookends made of 1,000-year-old oak and a handmade rosewood pen. Framed survey maps of the retiree's hometown today and at the beginning of the 19th century also make a unique retirement gift. A handmade change bowl is another unusual retirement gift you can give to a man.
Unusual Retirement Gifts for Women
One simple and unusual retirement gift you can give a woman is a greeting card made of ceramic. A greeting card of this kind will outlive any paper card and is a keepsake that can be displayed. A beautifully decorated glass with a handle and the name of the retiree printed on it is a one-of-a-kind retirement gift for a woman that can also have words printed on the back that wish her a happy retirement. A plate made of fine bone china with the date of retirement and a special message printed on it is another unusual retirement gift that can be given to a woman. Another kind of plate you can give to the woman who is retiring is one you sign and have others sign. This unusual retirement gift is a gift a group of co-workers may want to give.
Unusual Retirement Gifts for a Man or a Woman
A framed share of stock makes a retirement gift you seldom see hanging on a wall and one any man or woman would want to receive. Another unusual retirement gift that will have its recipient celebrating retirement many months after his retirement party is membership to a wine or beer of the month club. A massager you can sit back in is an unusual retirement gift, and one that will help a retiree savour relaxing moments that are synonymous with retirement.
