    Default Retirement Gift Ideas??

    Been given £100-ish to spend on a retirement gift for a bloke I work with.

    I was thinking iPod/Digi Camera, something useful but different rather then a carriage clock

    Any ideas?

    Blimey, I guess it all boils down to what he likes/his interests are! He may very well be the sort of person that does like carriage clocks!

    He's a quiet person and doesn't really let on what his interests are hence the reason I am struggling for ideas.

    Looking for something different I suppose, something of use.

    and yes a carriage clock could well be the answer, but someone else can buy him it

    Strike up a conversation with him over a coffee break, and try and slip the a question in about his retirement plans.... he's gonna mention Golf or Gardening or Fishing, and that should give you a clue.
