Retirement Hampers & Food Gifts

Retiring may be the end of an era, but it’s one to be celebrated in style. And a decadent retirement hamper from Cartwright & Butler will help them do just that. They can pop open a bottle of fancy fizz to mark the occasion, gorge on rich chocolate truffles or incredible cheese and biscuit sets. Trust us, there’s no better way to wave goodbye to working life than with a selection of scrumptious treats to indulge in.


Why choose retirement hampers?

A retirement hamper really is extra special; it gathers a delightful selection of goodies into one opulent package and lets you cherish your giftee’s special occasion. 

Gorgeous gift baskets for retirement show your chosen recipient just how happy you are that they’re retiring after all this time. Plus, it reminds them how important their role truly was. Most of all, these plush presents let you celebrate them on this marvellous milestone occasion, showing them just how excited they should be for this incredible new chapter in their life. Not to mention, retiring means oodles of free time. And what could be a better way to spend these freeing moments than with a hamper packed full of delicious sweet and savoury goodies to gobble up?

Whether you’re an excited friend hoping to put a smile on their face as they begin their retirement, or a student showing your thanks to your teacher, we have an array of amazing retirement hampers for you to send straight to their door. Of course, we offer retirement gift baskets for men, retirement gift baskets for women and so much more. So, when you choose plush presents like these, no one will leave their final working day without feeling spoilt rotten – which is how it should be!

Retirement gift baskets for women

If the special lady in your life has announced her retirement, we have a host of generous retirement gift baskets for women to experience.

Spoil your favourite lady with a retirement hamper for her

She may be looking to unwind and cherish her newfound freedom as a retiree. But instead of booking her a busy afternoon tea trip, send her the experience in the post to enjoy from the sheer comfort of her own home! 

Take her tastebuds on an indulgent journey with our appetizing Afternoon Tea Gift Selection, bursting with a range of sweet delights. She can soak up the fragrant, fruity flavours of our scrumptious Cherry & Almond Loaf Cake while she sips a cup of rich English Breakfast Tea and giggles about old stories about working over the years. 

Then, she can make a toast with a glass of bubbly, thanks to the crisp bottle of Baron de Beaupre Champagne included in her gift box. Whether she chooses to share the bottle with you or kicks back and enjoys it all to herself, you’ll know from her cheery expression that she’s over the moon with her gift. For a small cost, you can even add our extraordinary “With Love” gift sleeve, which will really personalise this present and show her how much you care. This is exactly what a retirement hamper should look like.

Retirement gift baskets for men

Choosing retirement gift baskets for men? What an idea; receiving one will leave him utterly speechless. 

Perhaps he loves picking at food and goes crazy for a bottle of beer? If that’s the retiree you have in mind, send our Beer & Nibbles Gift Box to his door. This lavish retirement hamper is jam-packed with treats, from brilliant savoury bites including Baked & Salted Classic Mixed Nuts, divine Cheddar Cheese Crumbles and delicious Gouda Cheese Melts to flavour-filled Seeded Beetroot Flat Bread crackers. Goodies on the sweeter side are also packed into this smart and sleek box, including a tin of mouth-watering Sea Salted Toffee and a bottle of robust Black Sheep Chocolate & Orange Stout. He can revel in his retirement with a glass of Milk Stout, too, as he tucks into a handful of idyllic items. 

The bigger the better

For something bigger and bolder, spoil him silly with our wonderful Bolton Abbey Hamper. To start his retirement off with a bang, he can savour a cracking bottle of rich merlot one evening or a delicate white wine infused with citrus and melon the next! Not forgetting the box of silky Chocolate Wafer Crispies and Spiced Plum Preserve – which are just two of the many opulent items he can devour.
