    Retirement Gifts

    There are millions of people in the baby boomer generation ready to retire. Are you ready? Give your retiring employees a fun retirement gift and they'll be on their way to a life filled with relaxation, entertainment, travel, indulgence, reading, and enjoyment. Office Playground's selection of retirement gifts definitely fulfill a few of these aspects of retirement.

    Why give retirement gifts?

    Managers, CEOs, and coworkers may want to celebrate their employee or coworker's retirement. With the retirement day fast approaching, a coworker may want to give a retiring coworker a retirement gift out of sentiment, kindness, or due to a friendship. Managers and company owners may give retirement gifts for similar reasons, but things like company culture and employee retention also come into play. If a manager gives a retirement gift of office toys, it shows a fun and upbeat company culture. If the gift is well thought out, retirement gifts show other employees that their managers actually care! (We could touch on how this increases employee motivation, but that's another topic.)

    Retirement Themed Gifts

       MY RETIREMENT COUNTDOWN TIMER For the employee who recently announced their retirement and still has a couple weeks to go, give the 'My Retirement Countdown Timer'. Pre-retirees will look forward to seeing their countdown until retirement down to the last second.
      RETIRE MINTS What are a retiree's favorite type of candy? Answer: Retire Mints! Retire Mints will add a burst of minty freshness to your retiring employee's day.


    RETIRED PARKING PERMIT Once an employee retires, make it official with the Retired Parking Permit. This retirement bonus gives pass holders with the privilege to park anywhere they choose. (Of course, the Retired Parking Permit is a novelty item and it does not actually provide the freedom to park anywhere.)



    Depending on the retiree's interests, you could assemble a care package full of goodies related to their favorite hobby. Here are a handful of hobby related categories (just to name a few):

    Coloring Books Golf Puzzles Science TV & Movies



    After a lifetime of hard work, celebrate your retiree's final days of work with pampering office health toys. Your employee or coworker will appreciate head massagers, hand massagers, and hot/cold packs. But, don't think that hot/cold packs are just for injuries and tired muscles: retirees can simply enjoy the relaxing warmth of a heated hot pack anytime they so desire.

    Gag Gifts

    If your retiree has a great sense of humor and if you think he/she would laugh at a few jokes related to getting older, then a selection of Gag Gifts & Toys could make an entertaining retirement gift. Here, we can start out with a few of our favorite old age gag gifts, and check out the Gag Gifts category for more ideas.

    5 Reasons to Give Away Office Toys

    Many years ago, I found my inspiration for starting Office Playground at a trade show. I was working at a trade show consulting firm at the time and my company's job was to help our clients get as many people to their booth as possible. My boss used to call it, "creating an anthill," referring, because that's what it looks like when attendees swarm your trade show booth. Continue reading

  • Create Your Dream Office in a Shed - TigerSheds Guest Post

    Create your dream office in a shed

    Recently TigerSheds created a guide on how to transform your garden shed into the perfect office.


    Create your dream office in a shed The Amur Log Cabin Office Shed - External

    We’re thrilled that Tiger Sheds included our awesome Anti-Gravity Globe to give their working environment a true executive touch.


    After reading this post it inspired us to think; what else would we add in an office shed to bring some fun to the working environment.

    Here are our top choices:

    Desktop Locker

    Wish you had a sacred place to store your favourite pens, jewellery and money? Then the Desktop Locker is perfect for you! You will be the envy of the office with this product as it even comes with a mini picture frame on the inside, padlock, and keys!


    Drum Roll Sound Button

    If you’re planning on kicking your business off in a shed or a log cabin then you may not have that many workers to begin with. But that shouldn’t kill the atmosphere! With the Drum Roll button you can create suspense before declaring exciting news and feel like you’re in an office of a 100.

    Desktop Par 3 Golf Game


    Having your office in a shed could mean you don’t have that much spare space for a mini golf course, however, you can still keep your golf skills sharp with this adorable and yet very cool Desktop Park 3 Golf Game, so you can procrastinate in style!


    Sarcastic Ball

    Want some more office banter? You don’t need to go through the stress and worry of employing someone new! With the Sarcastic Ball you will get all the backchat you crave, with comebacks such as ‘In your dreams’, ‘Ask me if I care’ and ‘Dumb question ask another’. Ahh Perfect.

    Basket Ball Hoop


    If you’re trying to create a cool working environment then how could you forget about having a Basket Ball Hoop on your wall? Then you can shoot hoops whilst in the middle of a long phone call, or a long meeting or maybe just on a Friday afternoon.


    What would you include in your office shed? Share with @TigerSheds and @Officeplaygoun

    We want to thank Hannah at Tiger Sheds for writing this guest post and we encourage everyone to think outside the cubicle and get your own Outdoor Office Shed
