Retirement Sentiments

Retirement sentiments in a greeting card often are simple phrases to wish the soon-to-be retiree the best.

As sentiments are usually thoughtful expressions it may be helpful to check out a few sample retirement messages before signing the card.

If you are especially fond of your co-worker, then they'll appreciate your thoughtfulness on writing a personalized retirement message.

Here are some examples of retirement sentiments for inspiration:

  • Wishing you the best in retirement!
  • It was great working with you all these years! We'll miss your smile around the office!
  • To one of my favorite soon-to-be ex-coworker, Happy Retirement!
  • May the next years be the best of your life!
  • Now who is going to make our yummy morning coffee? We'll miss you (and your coffee making skills)!
  • Cheers to you living the good life! Enjoy your retirement!
  • You have been a wonderful person to work with! I remember when you took me out to lunch on one of my first days here and really showed me the ropes. I will miss you dearly, but wish you the best in retirement.
  • Your bright smile and infectious laugh have always made this place all the more bearable! You will be missed!
  • Although I've only gotten to know you these past few years, it has been great swapping stories about our kids and sharing recipes! I hope you enjoy your retirement to the fullest, you deserve it!
  • Thank you for all of your help over the last years! You have been a important part of this company and your presence will be missed.

Stumped for retirement gift ideas?
Here are some ideas!

The Joy of Not Working, by Ernie J. Zelinski

My husband got this book when he retired (aka, got laid off) by his co-workers. It was actually a very eye opening book for us and a fun parting gift.

The author talks about doing stuff that you find joy in after you "retire."

Hilarious Retirement Pillow!

This is an "I don't want to...I don't have to...And you can't make me! I'm retired!" pillow.

I think the writing on the pillow says it all! This would be a really fun and even practical gift for your retiree!

Another Funny Retirement Book!

This retirement book has less reading than the one above. It's a light-hearted look toward retirement and is bound to invoke some chuckles.

If you are looking for a friendly, inexpensive fun retirement gift, then this is it!
