Congratulations on Retirement

Do you know someone who has paid their dues and is finally retiring? Retirement is a wonderful new chapter in a person's life that often gives one more freedom to take up new hobbies, visit family and friends, travel to faraway places, write that great American novel or just lounge around! Here are some ideas for a congratulations on retirement card:

  • Is your newly minted retiree planning on traveling? Consider decorating the front of the card with pictures of exotic locales, a photo of a departing airplane, a world map with little destination flags all over it, or any travel related images -- and, of course, don't forget to write a gigantic "Congrats on Retirement!" message on the front!

  • Does your new retiree plan on taking up a special hobby? Is a lot of gardening, classic car repair, or antique collecting in store for your retiree? Consider incorporating their special hobby onto the front of the card along with your congratulations on their retirement.

  • Along with a handmade card, consider what types of fun retirement gifts your soon-to-retired friend may enjoy, like a new passport holder or maybe tickets to an Antiques Roadshow!

Congratulations on Passing a Driver's Test

Do you have a young adult in your life that has recently passed their driver's test? Passing a driver's test is one of the biggest events in a high schoolers' life because it is a milestone in their journey to adulthood. Making a homemade congratulations card for passing a driver's test is a sweet way to acknowledge their accomplishment.
  • Congratulations card ideas for passing a driving test can incorporate a lot themes related to travel, traffic, and journeys. Consider incorporating a map onto the front of the card with a note of congratulations.
