The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off [Abe Lemons].
Here are the top 10 things people say they will do when they retire from work:
- Spend more time with the family
- Start doing some charity work
- Get out in the garden
- More trips to the cinema
- Start the hobby they’ve always been interested in
- Take a class
- Keep fit
- Move house
With such so many opportunities available, how do you find the perfect retirement gift?
That’s the quandary that we had when we started putting together our retirement kits. A lot of companies will give the traditional gold watch which I’m sure will be greatly appreciated, but how about something that’s a bit more personalised?
We’ve recently extended our retirement gift selection so that it’s tailored to people who want to spend more time gardening, cooking or rambling. Fun and useful books, handy equipment and the brilliant mug which say “I’m Retired. Go and ask someone else”
But we’re not going to stop there. There’ll be plenty more retirement kits coming to the Kitcentric site in the coming weeks – all with a slant to a new hobby or activity. And with the various sized kits, we really hope that you’ll find the perfect retirement gift.
