Retirement Party Ideas -
make it memorable!

Bringing everybody together is a perfect time to have a look back at a lifetime of work and good times.

Just remember - the retiree may be longtime friends with retired folks, more than current employees, as their co-workers may have retired first. Often, the current co-worker relationships aren't strong like former co-workers. Just something to consider...

If you are planning the party for someone, please take their wishes into consideration as they may have definite opinions on a retirement party. To the soon-to-be retiree, retirement is often downright scary -- please don't give them more anxiety. You want to ensure that the retirement party is as memorable as the long career.

When planning a retirement party, decide on the major issues:

  • Whether this will be a small intimate affair or a huge lavish party?

  • Is this a retirement dinner or munchies and desserts?

  • Open house party at the office, a rented hall or home?

  • Do you want to do a theme party?

  • How many will you invite?

  • Do you invite past retirees? current employees? family/friends?

    Fun Gift Ideas

    Some Amazon.com ideas are shown below, click to see much more on their website. Great ideas...

    Another fun gift ideas could be a personalized cartoon of the new retiree. For example, a golfer or Las Vegas vacationer may be presented as a personalized photo hand drawn as a cartoon. You can get caricatures and cartoons done for only $5 at fiverr.com. Yep, only $5.00, then frame it, and you've got a unique retirement gift!

    You can find lots of retirement gag gifts which can bring loads of entertainment. Bear in mind that the gifts chosen should not cause a negative vibe and not hurt feelings in any way. Again - the retiree may be smiling, but internally, there might be great anxiety, so why create more?

    Retirement gag gifts are a great substitute to conventional, dull, practical gifts. These funny retirement gifts will not only cause amusement and laughter but will also help create a memorable event!

    Retirement Party Games

    Depending on the party you host, you might consider a few games to get the party going.

    There are Printable Games, select one to match your party theme and simply download. Choose the season of the party, or the retiree interests, and print as many as you need. It looks like you really took the time to make the party fun (and you DID!)

    Some ideas: Star Trek trivia, Super Bowl party games, Christmas office party games, United States trivia (for travellers), Cubicle Chaos Mad Libs adult party game (this one is "adult"... grin!) or even a Spy Party game!

    Then there is Beer trivia, Wine trivia, or Cheese trivia - serve different cheeses and everyone will remember the party!

    Retirement Cakes

    Retirement cake ideas here. You can make your own, maybe a theme cake matching the theme party, or cupcakes (which are Cool now!) Some are a bit pricey but this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, someone special to you is going into retirement, so if you don't care to bake... this is the solution for you!

    I hope you found many great retirement party ideas on my website!
