What is retirement gifts?

Retirement gifts tell our gratitude or appreciation for all their efforts. When your boss, coworkers, or clients retire, we send some gifts.

What is the retirement age of your country? In most countries, the retirement age is around the 62~65 age.
China is one of the lowest retirement age country. On average, the retirement age is 56.
On the contrary, Norway is the highest retirement age country. The average of retirement age is 67.

In Japan, most companies set the retirement age as 60. However, some companies start to raise the retirement age to 65.

Some people decide to retire earlier than their retirement age. For their family, or for their own future, some people retire earlier, and enjoy their new life.
Also, regardless of age, some people retire a company and change their career. Some start new business by themselves.

When people retire, they have different background or reasons. Naturally, retirement gifts should be different for the one who retires at his / her retirement age or for the one who retires to change his / her career.

Therefore, Japan Design Store proposes some retirement gift ideas for each person.

“Japanese masterpiece” has dignity. And it has story or background that have some sympathy with the retiree’s life.
All products in our store have been popular as birthday gifts or memento.
Among many items, our buyer selects some items for the retirement gifts.

What is the budget for the retirement gifts?

When you select a gift, budget is important.
Here, we would like to introduce the Japanese average cost for the retirement gifts.

Of course, the grade of gifts is not determined by price. However, if you are in trouble to select the retirement gifts, the following ideas may help you.

Give retirement gifts personally

If you personally send retirement gifts for the retiree, the price for the gift is said ¥5,000 ~ ¥10,000 (about $50 ~ $100). On average, it is ¥7,000 ~ ¥8,000 (about $70 ~ $80).

Of course, if a person has helped you a lot, you can spend more. However, if you send too expensive retirement gifts, the retired person may worry about you.

If you send retirement gifts as a group, the price for the gift is said ¥10,000 ~ ¥30,000 (about $100 ~ $300). So, you can send a gorgeous present.
If a group has a few members, the price can be not so expensive. A little bit higher than the personal gift is okay.
If a group has a lot of members, ¥3,000 ~ ¥5,000 per person can afford a great retirement gift.

This is the retirement gifts ideas from Japan Design Store!

If a person retires at his / her retirement age, and the sender is much younger than him / her, it is difficult to choose the gift items.

The tip for best presents is catching the taste of the retired person. But “retirement gifts” are a little bit different from other gifts such as “birthday gifts.”

The most important thing for a present is not item, or price, but the thought. Yet, retirement expresses “the compilation of his / her dozens of years.”
The retirement gifts are the last presents from a company or the team.

For the retirement gifts, we need to respect the hobbies of him / her. If your boss is a unique person, unique gift is also good.
However, there is one important point for the retirement gifts. That is “dignity.”

The retirement day or the retirement party means a graduation of a life as a businessman. Therefore, we would like to farewell them in gorgeous and dignified way somehow.
Even a person just changes his / her career, the retirement is one of the turning points of his / her life.

* Paulownia boxes and exclusive boxes differ from item to item.

Retirement gifts is not only a present, but expresses the bond of the retired person and company. The retirement gifts remind people the days in the company after the retirement.

The retirement gift is an item that is filled with the graduation, the time spent together, and his / her achievements. Every time a person sees it, he remembers that “I had good coworkers and boss”, “I made some achievements in the company”, or “my retirement party was wonderful.”
So, we recommend the items with dignified atmosphere.
