It used to be that retiring employees would be given the traditional gold watch upon retirement. These days, there are a lot more retirement gift ideas for men available, and for cheaper too. If you’re looking to buy one for a male colleague, here are some tips and suggestions on buying retirement gifts for coworkers.

For the Jetsetting Retiree

To others, reaching retirement usually means finally having the time to go on that long-overdue vacation. Titles like the 50 States 5000 Ideas Book or the How to Retire Wild and Free provide some great ideas on what to do and where to go after retirement.

Another great farewell present is a world travel map or a scratch-off map to help them plan and keep track of their next destination.

Some useful tools and gadgets for the way are most welcome gifts too. A lightweight travel camera (like the Olympus Mirrorless Camera) is great for taking touristy photos, while a pair of wireless Apple Airpods are perfect for long flights and layovers.

For the Busybody

All that free time is perfect for picking up a new hobby, like gardening, cooking, or even painting. Unique retirement gifts like a wine-making set, craft beer making set, indoor grow lights, or a bread maker will surely help keep their hands busy.

How about suggesting a new sport or pastime? A poker set or a sock monkey golf club cover are two popular gift ideas.

For the Homebody

After spending almost one-third of their time at work, it’s time for the retiree of the hour to finally put their feet up and get some much-needed down time.

A BBQ grill set makes a great gift idea for the king of the grill. Pair it with a cooler with wheels, a portable speaker (we like the JBL Waterproof Travel Speaker) and a movie projector, and you’ve got all you need for a great backyard BBQ party.  

For the Tech Savvy

With retirement comes the question, “What do I do with all this free time?” Lots, apparently. An Alexa-enabled HD Screen, a smart speaker (like the Echo Plus 2nd Gen Smart Speaker), or a waterproof Kindle Reader will surely keep them entertained for hours.
