Retirement Gifts For Your Grandfather

I’ve listed three awesome retirement gift ideas for your grandfather below. Just in case you haven’t found the most perfect retirement gift for him yet.

1) Masterclass One Year Subscription

As you wish your grandfather all the best in retirement you can gift him access to the best in the world. And by that, I mean a Masterclass Subscription. Masterclass is an online education video platform with over 100+ different masterclasses available. It’s one of my favorite retirement gifts out there. And I’ve spent hours searching for the best, so I know what I’m talking about.

With a subscription to Masterclass, your grandfather can learn new skills from the best in the world. All from the comforts of his own home, at his pace, time, and device. For example, he can watch the Masterclass from Aaron Franklin who teaches Texas-Style BBQ, follow the Basketball Masterclass of Stephen Curry, explore acting with an acting Masterclass from Samuel L. Jackson, get better at writing with the 20 different Writing Masterclasses from the worlds’ best writers. And I can go on and on. Definitely check out Masterclass if you want to make your grandfather’s retirement fun and interesting.

2) Funny Beer Mug

If your grandfather loves beer then this funny beer mug is a home run retirement gift. It has the text “This beer tastes a lot like I’m not going to work tomorrow”. Your grandfather will think of you every time he drinks out of this mug.

3) Book: 50 States, 5000 Ideas

When your grandfather has exciting travel plans in retirement then this beautifully illustrated book: 50 States, 5000 Ideas is the best retirement gift out there. It’s filled with amazing travel ideas and fun experiences in every state. From the well-known to the unexpected. Made by the travel experts of National Geographic.
