My father is retiring this week and I want to get him something special as congratulations (and thanks). Any ideas?

What's he into? How old is he? Where does he live? Is he married? Is there someplace he's always wanted to go that you could send him on a trip to? What's your price range?

Response by poster: I don't really have a price range. He's 61. He's still married to my mom. They live in Richmond VA. He's obsessed with golf but has other interests too.

Inscribed golf clubs? Personalized caddy?

A golf vacation to a place he's never been?

...To St Andrews Old Course. (wait till it gets warmer and sunnier here)

How about something like a nice, user-friendly digital camera so he can take up a new hobby in his spare time. Then when he and your mom do go traveling, they can take wonderful pictures to remember their trips by.

What did he do for a living? You might think of something that commemorates his career. When my Dad retired as an engineer, I put together a photo album of his building projects.
