5 retirement gag gift ideas for laughs

There are so many retirement gag gift ideas around these days that we’re spoiled for choice. Choosing just one can seem to be such a waste when there are so many other great ideas too! Here we’ve chosen five cool ideas to help you narrow it down.



1. Gag magazine cover

Here’s a great retirement gag gift. Create a gag magazine cover featuring the retiree! Depending on what he works as, customize the magazine name to reflect that particular field of work (like “Editor’s Digest” if he is an editor). You can use real magazines featuring real celebrities as a sample to work with. Make sure you use a great picture of him at work on the cover.

Laminate and frame it for an unforgettable retirement gag gift. If you’re not inclined to create this by yourself, don’t worry. You can turn to online gag gift sellers who offer easy customization for your convenience.

2. Retired parking permit

This is a simple yet funny retirement gag gift. Give the retiree a special parking permit for retired folks. This gag gift is guaranteed to bring smiles and laughter! These permits are easily available from various sellers on the internet or from your local gag store.

3. Retirement office hours sign

If your retiring co-worker or friend plans to offer “consulting” services after retirement, here’s a hilarious retirement gag gift. Get a custom retirement office hours sign especially for him! Instead of the usual hours like those on normal office hours signs, this gag sign contains humorous statements and lines about opening and closing hours (as well as when and why these hours would sometimes vary!).

Such signs are easily available across the internet. Most are sold as is for your convenience. However, if you prefer to customize the wordings, you can also use them as samples to refer to and create a special office hours sign for the retiree!

4. Retirement Fun(d)

Poke fun at retirement fund concerns with this particular retirement gag gift idea. Get a cash box and label it as “Mike’s Retirement Fun(d)” as a gag gift, depending on the retiree’s name. You can fill it with coins or spare change collected at the party for laughs. Alternatively, you can also get or make a bigger box and fill it with well-wishes cards, coupons, tickets etc. This gag gift will be a hit at the retirement party!

5. Life begins…

You know how they say life begins at 40? This retirement gag gift idea plays on this saying as a joke. Get a wall clock and customize the background. In big, easily seen letters, add in the words “Life begins at...” and put in the retiree’s age. This idea is simple and easy to make, but funny nonetheless.
