10 Things to Consider When Searching for 60th Birthday Gift Ideas

1. Get a gift to use for entertaining

This is a great gift idea to consider if you are shopping for someone that is looking forward to hosting more parties and events for friends and family.

Consider getting them some new serving plates or something like a chalkboard platter that they can use to serve unique cheeses or other appetizers!

This makes for a great item and encourages them to keep up with spending time with loved ones and friends.

2. Encourage a hobby

As you get older you finally get more time to spend on hobbies! If you are shopping for someone that is newly retired or a veteran about to retire, consider getting them something that will encourage them to stay with their hobby.

Without a hobby, life after retirement can feel a little boring. Don’t let that happen to them!

3. Make them try something new

The older you get, you do tend to get a little stubborn and set in your ways. Does that sound like the person you are shopping for? Help them try something new!

They are not likely to seek something out on their own, but you can help them by getting the senior in your life a unique 60th birthday gift that will force them to!

Whether they like it or not, the experience is something they will remember and appreciate.

Just remind them that it is always good to stay curious in life and stay open to trying new things!

4. Incorporate memories

While you should always keep looking forward in life, when you turn 60, it is also nice to look back and remember some of the great memories you’ve created.

If you are trying to think up the perfect gift, try to incorporate some of those best memories!

Maybe that is framing a certain picture, taking a trip to a certain location, or engraving a piece of jewelry with an important date or person’s name.

There are a lot of options, and they all result in a personalized gift that is sure to make the person smile.

5. Get a joint gift

If you don’t have a large budget but want to really wow them for their 60th birthday, consider getting together with friends or family to get a joint gift that they will really love.

That isn’t to say that less expensive gifts aren’t good, but if you want to say treat them to a vacation, or get them a nice new massage chair or golf club set, don’t feel like you have to do that all on your own! Consult with other people and consider getting the gift from all of you.

6. Add to an existing collection

Does this person have a collection of something? By the age of 60, they are sure to have quite the collection going. If they do, consider getting them a new item that they can add to it!

This is certainly something that interests them and you know they will absolutely love it. Can you complete a set for them? That will really surprise them!

7. Personalize something meaningful

Any gift can quickly become more special by taking the time to have it personalized. This could mean putting the person’s name on it or a meaningful date to them.

Whatever it is, it makes the gift unique to them and only them. They are sure to love it and hold onto it forever - and what more could you want out of a gift than that?

8. Include a handwritten note

We think it is a great idea to include a note with whatever gift you get for the person! We live in a digital world, but sometimes it is nice to break out of that and go back to the basics.

Someone turning 60, trust us, will love getting a handwritten card or note that shares some great memories or well-wishes.

This is a simple touch that really will make a big difference.

9. Help keep them connected

Thanks to technology, it doesn’t matter if your family is located all across the country (or even the world) you can still keep in touch!

Consider getting them something they can use to keep them in touch with family and friends- this could be an iphone, a webcam, or other related video technology that will allow them to stay in touch with the people that matter the most to them.

10. Encourage physical activity

Staying active is one of the best things you can do as you get older. Consider a gift that will help encourage them to stay active.

This doesn’t mean they need to be in the gym 6 days a week or running marathons, but they should still have some type of physical activity as part of their daily routine!

Consider getting them a fitness tracker, for example, to help keep them informed of how active they are!

Or, get them a more specific gift if they have a certain sport or activity that they enjoy - such as a new set of golf clubs or a tennis racquet.

Aervana Original 1 Touch Luxury Wine Aerator Like me! 0
Certain types of wine, notably young red wines and a few white wines need to have the wine aerated before consumption to oxidize the tannins, sulfates, sulfides and various other chemicals within the wine that affect its flavor. Traditionally a red wine is decanted into another bottle to allow a large surface area to get in contact with the air and to remove the sediment in the original bottle so that it doesn’t end up in the wine drinker’s glass. There are other types of aerators for sale that rely on getting extra air contact by pouring the...
