Know someone who’s hanging up their proverbial boots soon? If you’re throwing a retirement party for a female coworker, giving her a “farewell” gift is a welcome gesture to celebrate a momentous occasion.

Retirement gifts for coworkers need not be expensive, and you don’t have to think too seriously about it. In the end, what matters is that the item expresses your well-wishes.  

Here are a couple of retirement gift ideas for women that are worth considering. From funny gifts to unique mementos, we’ve got you covered.

Funny Retirement Gifts

Giving a gift to someone who’s known for having a great sense of humor? Give her a retirement gift that suits her lighthearted personality.

You can give funny retirement gifts in the form of clothing items that come with funny messages. A statement Retired T-shirt with a humorous message (like “I worked my whole life for this shirt”) will surely elicit some belly laughs. Pair it with the colorful and tongue-in-cheek I Don’t Care Socks for even more hilarity.

Touching Retirement Mementos

In the mood to give something that warms the heart? Why not give a retirement keychain with a touching retirement message engraved into it?

If you’re having trouble getting your thoughts across, why not say it with a retirement mug or tumbler? It comes with a touching message that’ll surely remind her that retirement isn’t the end of a chapter, but is rather the start of another great adventure.

Bucket List Starter Pack

Speaking of adventures, retirement is the perfect time to get started on that bucket list. Help your retiree tick off the items on theirs with these unique retirement gifts:

A decorative cork world travel map or scratch off map makes a not-so-subtle reminder to make her post-career days count and take on the world one trip at a time. Guidebooks like the US National Parks Book, How to Retire Wild and Free, and 50 States 5000 Ideas Book are full of great ideas and suggestions on what to do and where to go. Don’t forget to document those road trips and adventures with a user-friendly and lightweight camera like the Olympus Mirrorless Camera.

Now that she has all the time in the world, your retiring colleague may also want to take on a hobby or craft that she’s always wanted to explore, like gardening or baking. Give her a bread maker, craft beer making or wine-making set, or indoor grow lights and she’ll never have a dull moment.

Retirement is a time to slow down and enjoy life. A movie projector, travel speaker, or a waterproof Kindle Reader will surely keep her entertained in her free time.

Thoughtful Personalized Keepsakes

We spend one-third—or about 90,000 hours—of our human life working. It’s no wonder then that some of the deepest relationships are formed at work. Make your retiree know that she is more than just a coworker to you by giving her gifts that come with an added personal touch.

  • How about gifting a retiring colleague a Retirement Wish Jar? The wish jar already comes with tickets and a pen—all you need is to fill it with heartfelt personalized messages and wishes from well-wishers at work.
  • Other great personalized retirement gift ideas are custom bobble heads, canvas prints, and photo pillows.
