My hubby and I are both blown away with the wonderful ideas. You have set our wheels in motion. As luck would have it, he worked in a beautiful building that would offer a nice piece of artwork. Thanks designmom and readers for the inspiration.

My father will retire early next year and we wanted to do something to celebrate.
So, knowing what his passions are we are sending him (along with my brother and husband) to the Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp. Since he’s a huge fan of the Tigers and loves playing baseball, this will allow him the chance to play baseball with some of the retired greats that he grew up watching.
You could do something similar…find something he’s passionate about and surprise him with a trip, or an experience that he won’t forget!

My dad is newly retired but we haven’t “celebrated” it yet because his retirement conincided with a death of a family member so we’re waiting a little bit. My dad is the sentimental type also so any of these ideas would be wonderful. Thanks!

I’m sure that as a lawyer your father-in-law has similar appetites. A first edition of a book special to him is always a great idea.

I mailed out letters to all his family, friends and some close collegues and asked them to write a letter to my dad about what a wonderful father/friend/collegue he is and then i made some handmade envelopes and put the letters in the envelopes and then in a black page photo album … he treasures it to this day – if you want some pics i can get them for you :0)
