Retirement congratulations

Retirement congratulations

Many people look forward to the end of their working life and the beginning of retirement. At last, the evening of life can be enjoyed to the full thanks to the new free time. However, the sudden absence of working hours also requires a major adjustment, which is managed more easily by some and with more difficulty by others. In any case, it is important to celebrate the exciting new phase of life and honor it with congratulations on retirement or retirement.

The right greeting card for congratulations

For retirement, relaxing landscapes such as a sunset by the sea or a blooming garden are often chosen as card motifs. They also like to show the things for which the retiree finally has time: Gardening, traveling, crafts, painting.... thereby the personal interests and hobbies should be dealt with. An extremely active retiree will probably be more attracted to a skydiver than to a quiet garden landscape. Finally, motifs featuring sleeping or lounging animals are also a fun, tongue-in-cheek choice for your congratulations. Include a nice group photo with all your colleagues as a memento.

Personalization of congratulations and greetings

Those who retire can look back on a long and hopefully successful working life. Recognition of years of service and gratitude for the many good deeds that the newly retired or retiree has done in his life are possible ideas for a personal greeting or saying. A witty poem on growing older also fits the occasion. Encouragement to finally fulfill long cherished wishes and dreams is also important. Congratulations and greetings should be written legibly and large enough by hand.

Achievement was your principle, not doings.

poor in sickness, rich in shaping!

I wish you so much happiness fine,
so many stars in the sky.

As much as the sand on the sea
I wish you all the best,
As much as the tree has branches.
