My Parents Retired–Now What? 16 Great Gifts for the Newly Retired

It’s estimated that there are approximately 40 million baby-boomers still in the workforce, a number that will shrink exponentially over the next several years as this generation rides off into the sunset. It can be an exciting time for people as they work through their bucket lists, spend time with grandchildren, or enjoy long awaited relaxation with their significant others.

August 21 is World Senior Citizen Day and while many boomers don’t consider themselves Senior Citizens (officially this designation begins at age 62 – eeks!), we wanted to put forth some great gift ideas for anyone entering this golden age.
