Special Retirement Gifts to Mark the Occasion

Retirement gifts can be bought for a wide array of people to express a multitude of feelings and emotions. A retirement gift can be used as a congratulations for parents or family, on starting a new and exciting chapter in their lives, a showing of friendship for colleagues, or even as a thank you to people that have helped you or your loved ones, such as teachers or doctors.

Not only does a retirement gift act as a good way of showing how much you care for a person, it also allows that person to go and create lasting memories which will stay with them throughout retirement, which can often be much more meaningful than tangible goods.

Retirement Gift Ideas for Men

To get the perfect retirement gift for men, we must think about the kind of activities which men like. Some men love to put themselves in positions which really get the heart racing, in which case our adrenaline-fueled gift experiences would be perfect. Alternatively, some men like a more slow-paced and relaxing lifestyle and with that in mind, experience packages like our urban/rural getaways or fine dining experiences will be more in line with this. We have put together a couple of our most popular experiences which make great retirement gift ideas for men around the UK.

60 Minute Microlight Flight

The perfect gift idea for any retiree looking to make the most of what life has to offer! Go up and explore some history in what most accurately resembles some of the earliest aviation in a Microlight aircraft at 1,500 feet. Get the best of both worlds with the thrill of being in an open top aircraft flying at high altitude, whilst taking in the breathtaking countryside scenery on a beautiful summer's day. Not only will the lucky recipient have the opportunity to soak in the experience as a passenger, but should the instructor be happy, they will also get the chance to take the wheel of the mighty machine and have a go at flying it themselves…now that's one to tick off the bucket list!

National Parks & Coastal Breaks

For some men however, after many years of working, they may want a well-deserved break away from the hustle and bustle of 9-5 life. If this is the case, then our national parks and coastal breaks gift experience is perfect, offering the opportunity to truly unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet in beautiful settings around the UK. Whether you prefer the sound of waves breaking on the beaches, or the natural beauty of our national parks, there truly is something to suit the needs of all men from a choice of up to 20 locations.

Retirement Gift Ideas for Woman

Just like men, in retirement, women will want to enjoy some of the finer things that life has to offer and enjoy having the time to do all those things which have been put on hold due to so many years of work. We have listed a few of our favourite gift experiences which would make perfect retirement gifts for women.

Afternoon Tea for Two

What is better than a cup of tea with friends? The answer is tea with a lot of sandwiches, cakes and delicious treats. Treat someone who is retiring to the opportunity to sit down and relax in a boutique and luxurious location and enjoy one of the UK's oldest traditions…an afternoon tea for two. We offer various packages from Afternoon Tea for Two at Sheraton Grand London Park Lane Hotel for those ladies who prefer high-end luxury, to Chocolate Afternoon Tea at Lion Rock for those who love a cozy tearoom in a quirky English village. Whatever her preference, she will be sure to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea as a memorable retirement gift.

Vineyard Tour & Lunch

As mentioned before, for some, the life of high-octane activities may be behind them, but fear not, there are plenty of slower-paced, more relaxing activities for women who are retiring. The Vineyard Tour and Tasting for Two is the perfect example of this, as it combines three things loved by all; wine, beautiful natural landscapes, and food which can be purchased on-site. With 19 locations to choose from, recipients can relax and explore peaceful and tranquil parts of the UK. Not only would they receive tours of the vineyards to understand more about the heritage of British wine and how it's made and bottled, but of course, the part everyone enjoys the most is the opportunity to taste many of the different wines available. This gift experience makes the perfect retirement present for any budding wine buff out there!

Our Most-Loved Retirement Gift Ideas

One of our best-selling products in this category, is the Steam Train Experience for Two.

It is available in 6 different locations around the UK and can last from 35 minutes up to a whole day depending on the location chosen.
