60th birthday present
One of our favourite 60th birthday gift ideas is an extra special, personalised photo album. Buy a scrapbook-style photo album and start looking for great photos to put in it. Include the best memories, photos of their family, children, grandchildren, childhood photos and any fun memories, especially previous birthdays. Take some time to write funny captions for some of the photos and decorate with little doodles and stickers.
When looking for a 60th birthday present, remember that some people feel like they’re now headed towards old age or retirement age. The big six-oh doesn’t sound so cheerful to many. Your gift needs to be extra fun, cheerful, and unique and something that makes them feel young with years to look forward to. A great idea is holiday tickets! Book him/her a holiday with their spouse (or with yourself!) to give them a memorable experience for their 60th year.
Fun 60th Birthday Gift Ideas
A personalised newspaper-style book is a fun gift for a milestone birthday. It will be fun for him/her and all the family to flip through and read all the major headlines from the day they were born. It's a nostalgic gift to make them feel special. If you like the sound of that, then we have plenty of fun, innovative and quirky gift ideas in this category.
When shopping for the birthday person, think about something that they want rather than simply need. Think of something that they've been wanting but didn't feel like they should splurge on for themselves, such as a brand new watch, perfume, or even a spa day. This makes a great gift because very often people want something but aren't keen on buying it for themselves; buying it for them is a great way to show them that, yes, they deserve it! Spoil them with some fancy wine or a dinner to top it off.
Tips to Make your Gift Extra Special
If you want to take any great gift to the next level, something personalised is always a great idea that anyone will appreciate. If you think your gift might seem a little cold on its own, add a little message inside the gift. If you're getting a birthday card, don't simply write the 'to' and 'from' parts only! Take some time to write a heartfelt message telling him/her why they deserve their day of celebration.
If you're still not sure what to buy, get sneaky and get in touch with those closest to the birthday girl/boy to find out something they've been wanting for a while. Giving a gift that shows you've put in a lot of time, effort, and thought into it is always guaranteed to bring a smile to their face regardless of how much you've spent on the gift! Finally, don't be afraid to go for fun, quirky gifts - remember, they're not old yet and your gift needs to remind them of that!
