My apologies to Susan from Illinois, who hoped all of you might give her inexpensive retirement gift suggestions. It's taken me so long to post her request, she's probably retired herself by now : )
Q: I thought that maybe you and your readers could give me some good, low-cost ideas for some events coming up. First of all, we have a dear friend who has been a school teacher and principal for about 30 years... My dad is also retiring this spring, and I would like to have ideas on something special we could do for him. We also have some special friends from church who are going to be moving across the country in another month. I would love to hear any ideas you might have, and I think the readers of your site often have great ideas to share, too!
A: I shared some ideas earlier with Susan via email, but I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
