A retirement gift for wife is a novel way of cheering her up. A nice gift would perk her up if she has been viewing her retirement as something depressing. Or, if your wife has been actually looking forward to the day she retires, you could always surprise her with something she has desired for a long time.
A travel package to her favorite destination can be a great retirement gift for wife. It could include a series of places which she has always dreamed of visiting but could not do so due to the pressure of maintaining her professional as well as personal life. Such a trip would surely be an exhilarating experience for her, one which she will enjoy immensely.
Heath club membership or any other club membership is also a nice retirement gift for wife. It would give her a chance to be involved in something that is good for her and will have a positive effect on her.
