Gifts For 90th Birthday
When a person reaches the age of 90 years old, there are a few things that he/ she has not seen in this lifetime, not to mention about the different gifts that they have received along their long life. It is very important that in this moment the 90 year old is surrounded by friends and family. Try to get together all the grandsons and great grandsons in order to honor this special person.
If you want to truly mark this event, you can even go to your local newspaper and get them to write a special page on your relative; however, if you plan on doing that, please talk to the people from the newspaper with 2 to 3 months before the happy event. They may well be very interested, as a 90 year old person has a lot to talk about and share his/ her experience.
If you want to go on a more sentimental slope, you can organize an album with the most important photos of that person’s life; try to write little messages as well, from you and from friends and family. Also, going more modern, you can make a special memories DVD in which you can gather all the people that were in the birthday girl’s/ boy’s life and let them talk about their time spent together and even make little jokes.
You can also buy CDs with the best music that person listened to in their youth or even get a DVD with the most important events, news and other information that happened in the year the 90 year old was born.
About the over the hill gifts, I would suggest you go easy on this one, as you have to think that a 90 year old is more fragile, although some of them have an enormous sense of humor. You can get them mugs or t- shirts on which you can find messages, like: “I’m not 90! I’m 18 … with 72 years of experience”.11
