Retirement Party Ideas

Are you looking for Fun Retirement Party Ideas? Just consider your options for a memorable retirement party, then Go For It!

Your soon-to-be retiree deserves a great send off! All it takes is a little time to consider the retirees wishes, some unique memorable party ideas, and your retiree will have a party to remember.

Don't FORGET the Camera!!

This doesn't mean a big, expensive retirement party. A small office party can be quite memorable with simple items to spice it up and make everyone smile!

Plan a unique send off and make it a happy time for all involved!

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 a retirement party that is as memorable as the long career. Fill it with friendly faces to help them into this new phase of life.

I have oodles of Retirement Gifts from Amazon here. This is a great way to get ideas on what you might give your special retiree.

Retirement books are another good idea... retirement is not as easy as you'd think. This is a huge life transition -- the retiree is gone, alone...  family and co-workers busy at work still.

Buy on Amazon, or not, it's easy peasy to do so, and have it delivered to your doorstep too.

Retirement cards are a great sendoff for the new retiree... sounds too simple, but with a handwritten and personalized message, the card will be tucked away for memories later in life. Be sure to make it personal, sign off like: "Jenny Smith, the gal who sat next to you in Accounting" or tell them a small memorable story. They will love that simple card!

What type of retirement party will you host?

Decide 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 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 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!
