Two of the most important days of a man’s life are: the day he gets his first “real” job – the job he intends to turn into a 20-year career – and the day he retires from that career to seek out new experiences and adventures.
Funnily enough, a gift for a man on the day he gets started on his career track, and a gift for him on the day he decides to go in a different direction with travel, volunteer work, or any of a host of retirement activities, can actually be the same type of gift!
Stylish, high quality leather bags of any type make the perfect retirement gifts for men.
Travel wallets make ideal retirement gifts for men because one of the dreams most men – well, most men and women, come to that! – have is to be able to travel wherever they want to go, whenever they want to go there.
Lots of retirees purchase an RV and start driving across country, seeing all the sites. A travel wallet, constructed of high-quality leather, with nine slots for plenty of credit cards as well as one’s driver’s license, a billfold pocket and a hidden pocket to store theater tickets or even grocery receipts, is so handy when on the road. And while checkbooks are dying out of fashion, a travel wallet can also function as a checkbook holder for those men that still use them.
Men's Toiletry Bags
A genuine men’s travel toiletry bag is another one of those ideal retirement gifts for men.
Whether the retiree is going to purchase an RV and travel around locally, or plans on taking frequent trips by airplane to experience other countries and cultures. A men’s travel toiletry bag is a necessity.
And a leather travel toiletry bag is just so stylish – not to mention sturdy – that it’s a pleasure just to look at, as well as use it!
Way back in the 1600s, manufacturers in the town of Duffel in Belgium began to make cylindrical bags that were very popular – easy to carry and sturdy. Back then they used a certain type of cloth, also called duffel, for the bags.
Today, duffel bags for men can be made of any material and leather duffel bags are the cream of the crop. Stylish and sturdy, they are among the ideal retirement gifts for men because they are easy to heave over a shoulder – unlike suitcases – and it’s easy to just pick up one’s duffel and go. Whether as a duffel carry on bag or a bag that one shoves into the luggage hold of an RV, they make the grade.
Once our retiree has reached a destination to explore, the luggage is left in hotel room or RV, and the perfect bag to carry any souvenirs is a leather messenger bag. So-called because they resemble the bags messenger boys used to carry, with a long strap to rest over one’s shoulder, an oiled leather bag with handles looks masculine and stylish at the same time.
Hiking is a popular activity for men and women of all ages, and if you’re looking for retirement gifts for men who love the outdoors, a leather backpack bag with plenty of zippered compartments for necessities will be well received.
No matter what the interests of a new retiree, a genuine leather bag may well become a treasured gift.
