Do you have a co-worker, family member or dear friend who is retiring soon?

Retirement is an event in which you want to recognize achievement, honor the individual, wish them well, show your appreciation and congratulate them; and all of this has to be wrapped up in an appropriate gift.  A gift you hope they will like and display to reflect on their career and colleagues.

So what to give?   Personalized gifts are very popular retirement gifts – keepsakes for a career.  A custom engraved gift allows you to give a gift they’ll admire and add your words of appreciation.  The most typical gifts we engrave for  retirement are:
