Retirement Gift Ideas

After years of dedication and service, send retiree off with a custom Visa® gift card that can be used to kick-start the permanent vacation. Is he headed to the fishing hole? Is she trading her office chair for a lounge chair? Find out what this longstanding employee has planned for the next chapter of life and get a gift card to go with it.

Below are some retirement gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:

Weekday Golfer. If the retired person has been a weekend golfer, he or she is likely to spend more time on the course now that the workday is clear. Find a photo of the retiree driving a long ball or deep into a back-swing. Upload it to make a golfing gift card the retiree can use to pay for green fees, new clubs, or new golf clothes. Write the words, “Time to tee off” on the retirement gift card. Deliver it with a new golf balls signed by everyone in the office.

Beach Bum. Trading in the office for the beach? Take a picture of a beach chair, pool lounge, or hammock. Use the picture to make a personalized gift card and write the words, “Your chair awaits” on the card’s embossed message line. Deliver the customizable Visa® Gift Card with that same chair, now signed by everyone in the office.

Retirement Garden. Finally time to spend pruning the roses in winter or planting bulbs in the spring. Send retiree off with a gardening gift card and supplies to get started. Take a picture of the retiree’s current garden (better if it’s been ignored) and use the image to make a personalized gift card. Write “Your new job” on the card’s embossing line. Deliver the retirement gift card with a variety of potted plants, bulbs, gloves, and a garden sign from the office

If you don’t have a retirement photo of your own, select a retirement gift card design from our predesigned gallery. The gallery is full of gift cards created by our designers plus thousands of images submitted by photographers, artists, and designers who participate in the PicPaid program.
