"Nest egg" is a term used to describe money that is saved by an individual for the purpose of fulfilling a specific goal. In most cases, people use the term "nest egg" to refer to the amount of money that they have saved for retirement. Just because it is most commonly used when talking about retirement, though, does not necessarily mean that it cannot refer to other things. A nest egg could also be used for other specific goals such as buying a second home, paying for tuition or even going on a dream vacation.
