What about a book on “how to spend your retirement” or “things to do once your retired” – I’ve been told by the retired people in my life, that sometimes they just get bored (esp if they worked a lot) so perhaps getting her a fun book on “having fun being retired” would be cute.

Also, you can never go wrong with a bottle of wine – maybe ad a note saying “cheers to your last day of work” or something like that.

Is there something work-related (but not corny) you could get her?

When one of my editors left we found a bracelet made out of typewriter keys for her. It’s by far been the best received gift ever. She nearly cried.

Ya i agree, the retirees that I know get bored and sometimes lonely.  Maybe a gift card to a local restaurant and meet her for lunch or dinner after she retires?
