Unique and funny DIY retirement gifts for women

1. A special plate reveal surprise

Decorate a plain ceramic plate with a special message for your recipient, then let it dry. Then arrange cupcakes - or even a victoria sponge layer cake - all over the plate, so the design is completely covered up entirely with food.


2. A funny photoshopped picture to frame

You could turn everyone in to Avengers by photoshopped her colleagues faces on to superhero bodies - or if she is an animal lover, you could turn all her colleagues in to dogs, cats, or any kind of animal! Picmonkey is amazing to use for this and is much easier than Photoshop to use!


3. Make her a little jar of big thanks

Why not fill a jar with thanks, memories and special messages, plus cute little extras like sweets and fortune cookies for your recipient.

6. A retirement survival kit

This is a funny retirement gift idea you can have tons of fun with!
