Retirement gifts can be tricky. What do you give someone who you may have known for years, but likely only in a professional capacity? Retirement gifts can feel cliché or impersonal, and keeping a gift within a reasonable budget can be a challenge.
I present… a custom Quiltlove quilt! Our quilts are excellent retirement gifts, checking so many of those tricky boxes. They are a great way to bring people together and ensure a (literally) warm send-off for a colleague or friend.
Retirement gifts should be personal, budget friendly and work for groups
I recently made a quilt for a woman who is retiring from the University of Oregon and it came together so well. I love how the organizer used our a la carte ordering process to pick green and yellow fabric to symbolize the University of Oregon’s colors, but then added a few accent colors. This kept the quilt from feeling overly corporate.
What’s more, some members of the group included ducks on their squares, bringing additional references to Oregon to the gift, without being too literal. What I love most however, are the references to memories of time spent together and Department accomplishments. Great job, Ducks!
