Make It Personal
Retirement gifts are part of a global tradition for the different industries to acknowledge the service of any worker or personnel, a company official, employee, or perhaps even a trustee. It is a way of showing a career person his worth and acknowledging what he has done for the maintenance of the company. It is also an added bonus for employees to work hard to be able to stay in the company for a longer period of time.
Companies and colleagues alike give out retirement gifts as a final commemoration of someone’s work portfolio. Nevertheless, the kind of retirement gifts is not limited by anything, but is instead flexible to be as unique as possible. Unique retirement gifts are anything but personally made or crafted.
Uniqueness Equals Non Conformity
For one, uniqueness of such a retirement gift should be considered as not commonly acquired in the commercial market, ordered from a third party manufacturing agency, or given to any other retiree from previous and even present retirement parties in an institution.
A unique retirement gift should be the first item of its kind in terms of tag, item type, occurrence of being given, or award. Furthermore, being unique in the simplest sense, the retirement gift should also exude some sort of distinguished prestige for a specific accomplishment of service. This would not only allow the retiree to personally claim that such a gift was meant for only one, but also raise self esteem for the self as well as others as they work hard to achieve such recognition.
In line with recognition, this is one of the most probable reasons for creating a unique retirement gift. A personally crafted gift makes it gain an identity that it has been crafted not by any commercial means but with the individual’s effort and passion in going through the trouble of making one.
Most probably, it may not be as extravagant as a car or a golf club, or anything of that sort which would require such complex machinery and equipment to create, but personally crafted unique retirement gifts could be anything, given the proper resources. Ever wonder why limited-edition, and order-based cars are so expensive and valuable? It is because these cars were crafted not in the industrial assembly line but are custom built, which adds up to the aesthetic and face value.
What makes unique retirement gifts nicer and more valuable than any other extravagant commercial gifts is the personal touch. Even a kid who has no idea of such extravagance and complexity of creating lavish gifts or even acquiring them could still create a simple gift, by his own means, and present it as a retirement gift.
It never is limited by the sole occasion alone. Retirement gifts are classified as such only because it speaks of an event of a worker that he is formally stepping down from work. The gift’s essence in itself is pure and simple in the sense that it is a thing worth keeping. Nonetheless, unique retirement gifts is a combination of a pure intention to acknowledge someone’s work service and the parting of something worth keeping.
Uniqueness is only limited by the imagination. Even still, once a person has started to think of an idea of what to give a retiree by heart has already started to imbibe a personal touch to the unique retirement gift.
