Choosing a retirement gift for someone is a big decision. After all, you’re thanking them for years of service, not to mention celebrating the end of their official full-time career, so you want to end things on a high note. Not just any gift will do, and you don’t want to cheap out either — but you also don’t want to spend a ton of money on gifts that the recipients won’t actually use. If you need some inspiration, check out this list of our 10 best retirement gift ideas for men, no matter their interests outside the office.

The massage gun uses the power of percussion to release strain, stress, and physical tension — all within the comfort of your home, no massage appointment necessary. The ergonomically designed massage gun comes with a travel pouch, a power adapter, and four easy-to-clean attachments that each provide a different massage experience.

Retirement Gift Ideas for Women

S’well Insulated Teakwood Ice Bucket with Tongs

Speaking of retirement gifts for mixologists, we’re big fans of this insulated ice bucket from the beloved brand S’well. While S’well is more well known for their uber-popular screw-top insulated water bottles, they make a variety of high-quality beverage accessories, including this premium ice bucket that’s crafted from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. This ice bucket features Therma-S’well® Technology with triple-layered, vacuum-insulated construction, designed to keep ice colder for longer and to stop condensation from forming on the outside. The bucket holds up to two pounds of ice and is also the perfect size to chill a standard Champagne or wine bottle. It comes with a stainless steel cover with a quick-access notch that holds the matching ice tongs, and the whole bucket is finished with a smooth matte teak print that resembles distressed wood. The ice bucket can be either laser engraved or screen printed with a large graphic to add the finishing touch to this retirement gift.

If your recipient prefers hot beverages to alcoholic ones, they will probably love this second generation mug from tech brand Ember. The smart mug lets you set an exact temperature between 120°F – 145°F (50°C – 62.5 °C) and maintains your drink at it for 80 to 90 minutes, depending on how full the ceramic mug is, or all day if the mug is left on the charging coaster. This ensures that you never have to reheat your coffee or tea in the microwave, or that you come back to a cold beverage after a long meeting. The mug can be submerged in up to one meter of water, making it safe to hand wash, and the smart LED screen indicates when your beverage is the perfect temperature. The mug is available in both black and white colors and can be engraved with a logo or graphic on the front.
