Milestone birthdays deserve special attention, and the 50th is no exception. So if someone special in your life is rounding the bend on the "Big 5-0," be sure to celebrate the coming of their 5th decade in style with a creative and memorable birthday gift. From humorous trinkets to handmade treasures, there are many great 50th birthday gift ideas to choose from.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few ideas to narrow your search:
Name a star in his honor, or present him with a hometown newspaper from the day he was born. Or, make his wish come true by treating him to a NASCAR driving excursion, hot air balloon, or sky diving adventure.
Make a scrapbook featuring all of the milestone events in the guest of honor's life, or create a DVD using treasured family photos. Invite family members to complete a "This is Your Life" questionnaire sharing their favorite memories, then compile in a scrapbook along with an audio recording of special birthday sentiments.
Now that the quintagenarian is entering a new chapter in life, he or she may appreciate a make-over, personal health and fitness evaluation, yoga, bicycling, or swimming classes, or personal training sessions.
For the guest of honor who appreciates a lighthearted jab at the aging process, it's hard to top bed pans, dentures, hearing aids, and walkers. For added fun, surprise him with an "Over the Hill" birthday bash.
With so many fun and creative 50th birthday present ideas to choose from, you're sure to find a gift that will suit the guest of honor's personality and interests. Enjoy sharing this milestone birthday with the special 50-year-old in your life.
