Retirement Gift Ideas

Retirement has been a discovery of beauty for me. I never had the time before to notice the beauty of my grandkids, my wife, the tree outside my very own front door. And, the beauty of time itself. ~Hartman Jule Retirement is a pastime in an individual's life. It is work free, stress free and carefree. It is the time to welcome pension and goodbye tension. Thus retirement is a special phase in everyone's life. The monotonous and hectic time schedule is broken in order to fulfill the uncherished dreams and desires of life. People want to spend time with their family and friends. They want to enjoy every moment of life.
