Retirement is a huge life event, so you have to make sure you’ve got the right gift. Whether you want sentimental or funny or both, a caricature does it all.
I absolutely love this retirement gift! She’s reading her favorite book, being served hot chocolate by the school’s mascot, her various awards decorate the scene.
Touching, silly, personal, and totally unique — these are the qualities you look for in an excellent gift. A retirement caricature IS that gift.
This life event is too important to not be perfect.
Moreso than any other personalized retirement gift, a caricature can capture someone’s personality.
Take this awesome retirement caricature, for example:
There is so much of his character in this gift! A funny story is behind the bandage wrapped around his finger, a nod to his unnatural love for Cherry-flavored Pepsi, a farm and a pheasant to show what he’ll be doing after he retires.
A caricature shows it all – whether you want a funny retirement gift, or a retirement caricature that tells a story. You can browse our gallery for ideas, or tell us what you’d like to see and let us bring your ideas to life!
Caricatures make great graduation gifts for any milestones, with their ability to capture a person’s past, present, and future. Graduations make for particularly awesome caricatures – take this one, for example:
I love how they included aspects of her past and present (the diploma on the wall, and her graduation cap) as well as her future (the setting with the patient, her engagement ring, etc). But they also included the constants in her life – like how she’s dancing in her favorite traditional dress, or even the subtle fact that her stethoscope is her favorite color, orange.
It’s hard to find the perfect retirement gift. An engraved plaque, pen, or trophy? Overdone. A pocket watch? Too dated and detached. A gift card? Too impersonal!
This is what makes caricatures perfect for retirement gifts. They’re unique, personal, and completely customizable. You can incorporate company logos, memories and job history, inside jokes, personal interests, and quirky habits. Just send in your photos, describe your scene, and our artist will work his magic.
Take a look at these awesome examples!
His favorite books and music are represented, as are his hobbies of guitar-playing and tai chi. They included an inside joke about bacon, and a subtle reference to how he’s going to research his family tree after retiring.
This retiree tortured the office with updates about his favorite sports teams, so they had to include team paraphernalia. There’s a busted computer referencing a funny story, and the walls are decorated to show his military and government service. There’s even a banner thanking him for his years of service.
These caricatures say more than a thousand words.

Mother’s Day was earlier this month, and this was one of my favorites. This mom loves nothing more than her two boys…and the WSU Cougars!

A caricature social media avatar is a fun and unique way to express yourself online. You can use it as a profile pic on Pinterest or Facebook, on online forums, or blog posts. This is one of my favorite avatars we’ve done – it’d be perfect for a cooking/recipe blog!
