11 Retirement Gift Ideas You Can Give Your Beloved Colleagues

You’ve been with them through the ups and downs of your professional life. You’ve seen them grow throughout the years — project after project, client after client. You may have even forged bonds that go beyond the walls of your workspace. This is why when they permanently put off their blazers or suits, it’s just right to give them retirement gifts.

Here are 11 retirement gift ideas that your beloved colleagues will surely love.
