Colleagues giving gift to businessman

From funny T-shirts and mugs to retirement pills and inflatable walkers, there is a wide selection of humorous retirement gifts to fit the interests, hobbies or personality of the person retiring.

Finding the Perfect Funny Retirement Gift

If you know someone who is retiring and has a good sense of humor, giving a funny retirement gift is a great way to bring laughs to the retiree at this special time in life.

Although retirement is a time of ending a life's work, it is also a new beginning: a time when the retiree should relax and enjoy hobbies and interests that may have been put on the back burner during their years of working. For some, retirement means time for traveling, fishing or gardening. Others see it is as a way to enjoy whatever comes.

When you choose a humorous retirement gift, find something that fits the retiree's interests. For example, if the retiree loves to play golf, a set of personalized PARscription golf balls may be the perfect gift choice. The golf ball set found at the Web site, Gifts For You Now, includes six Top-Flite golf balls in two large prescription bottles. The labels on the bottles include the recipient's name, refill information and dosage instructions.

Sports-Related Humorous Retirement Gifts

Here are a few more ideas for humorous retirement gifts that are sports-related.
