When you have to buy a present for a 60 years old man, it can be quite tricky because you might think that particular person has almost everything after a life’s work. However, you can offer him gifts that take into account his hobbies, you can introduce him to the new activities or you can purchase the well known gag gifts.
Try to find out what the 60 year old enjoys to do; there are even men at this age that engage in an arts and crafts hobby, like pottery. Of course, they do more “manly” things, but a pottery turntable or pottery utensils will surely be appreciated. Do not laugh at them if they choose such a hobby because the pottery does have the ability of relaxing your nerves.
If he enjoys reading, you have tones of options. The men at this age also appreciate a good wine bottle or a good set of cigarettes; the best advice I can give you is try to go to a specialized store with a person that can direct you to the best products.
One of the greatest presents is the gift certificate. There are many men who on this age take up golf as one of their hobbies or tennis; therefore, you can offer them a gift certificate at clubs that have these activities. If he has not tried on these sports, introduce him to these new activities. It will offer him the chance to loosen up a little bit and why not, socialize with different people.
Also, there are 60 years old men that jog every morning or at least every weekend in order to keep in shape; therefore, a new pair of snickers or a pedometer, might tell him the distance he has traveled, the number of steps and even the calories he has burned.
At this site you can find a variety of gag gifts for a 60th birthday: from mugs with funny messages to gift baskets that contain retro candies and a CD with the most popular music of that person’s youth.11
Five year old children are full of imagination and are eager to learn more and more about the world that surrounds them. Buying a gift for five year olds is not that difficult: you can get them presents that emphasize the educational part of things, their imagination, their motor and conceptual skills or you can simply buy items that are only for fun.
Kids love to combine and build things: both girls and boys. You can purchase a Lego game, a puzzle, a jewelry kit that requires that the girl mixes the beads on her own and makes her own bracelets, necklaces and other things. The Martian Matter Alien Maker Playset- Spaceship pretty much works on the same concept that the aforementioned items do: the child will have the possibility of combining the pieces in all kinds of combinations. It will only cost you 12.69 dollars and the set is appropriate for children with ages between 5 and 8; always look at the age ranges.
If you want to help them enrich their imagination you can buy them a costume of their favorite character; in order to find out what their favorite character is, simply ask their parents. Girls usually love to dress up in princesses, in the popular Hannah Montana and boys love cowboy costumes, Spiderman costumes, Batman costumes and I could go on forever. Once they put on these costumes their imagination starts to work and they imagine different places, situations and so on.
The kids also love books: you can purchase interactive books or even get a pop out book that they will have to draw and write themselves. Now, items for fun: a bicycle is a great gift for a 5 year old. You can offer him the chance of finally giving up his tricycle and move on to a two wheeler. Also, include a helmet for the kid’s safety. If the parents will not have anything bad to say about it, you can even purchase a trampoline that will definitely amuse the child.11
The two year old toddlers are full of energy, they are very active and curious about the world that surrounds them. You will notice the fact that they start to imitate the persons in their life or even what certain characters in their favorite cartoons do. Therefore, you can focus on gifts that help develop their imagination, different skills, presents that are educational or simply fun. There is a variety of gifts out there and I assure you that a 2 year old baby will surely appreciate almost anything you give them.
You will also notice that the kids at this age start to express themselves via art: you will see them drawing on almost everything, which can cause some headaches to their parents. In order to help and ease the parents’ pain, you can purchase a drawing pad, watercolors, chalk, crayons, markers and other drawing related items; just make sure that all these products are age appropriate and non toxic.
The kids at this age are also interested about how things are build, that is why the presents like a Lego game, puzzles or the cube puzzles are great for 2 year olds. A great gift is the “assemble it yourself” Potato Man form Toy Story, which the bay will have to accessorize himself and add his eyes, feet, hat and others. Again, you have to make sure that they are age appropriate and that the parts they are made of are not too small and dangerous for the baby.
The two years old children also love to play pretend; therefore, you can give them a cowboy hat and cowboy boots so he can imagine that he is somewhere in the Wild West or a princess dress so the girl can pretend she is part of the Cinderella tale and so on.
The important things that you have to take into account when you buy presents for a 2 year old child are the safety and fun.11
Celebrating a person’s 80th birthday is, indeed, something very special. People this age need to be ensured that the people around them love them, respect them and honor them; therefore, a very good idea is organizing a birthday party where you can invite all the friends and relatives of the birthday boy/ girl.
At this party you can hang old pictures, important pictures that captured the most important moments in that person’s life. You can even hire a professional photographer so this opportunity remain in the 80year old’s photo album. To go even further, you can make a DVD with friends and family in which every person can talk about their experience with the celebrated person. In the end, you can invite people to write in a special guestbook, which the 80 year old can read later.
As for the more physical gifts, you can get funny gifts: t- shirts or mugs that have funny phrases, like: “It took 80 years to look this good” or “New and improved 80 year old- please note that our 79 year old model has been discontinued”. Other gifts that 80 year old may appreciate are: for the ladies, a beautiful shawl, maybe one that has been hand painted and for the gentleman you can get them a bathrobe or even an armchair that does a lot of tricks (like massaging) and is comfortable.
If you want to do something truly special, you can name a star after your loved one. At this site you will find several packages; for example, the standard one costs you 49.95 dollars and it includes a framed certificate, information about the constellation in which the star is found, the name you give to your star and others. Also, you can choose to buy 1 acre of moon land; these gifts are truly special for a special person that has been on this Earth for 80 years.11
A woman that turns 30 is definitely very busy: she most probably has a career and also a family and all these elements do take a strain on a person. You can purchase gifts that will help her release from all this stress, gifts that are based on her hobbies, interests, funny gifts or general gifts that all women love.
All women love to receive flowers on their birthdays; you can get a normal, traditional bouquet with her favorite flowers or if you are clueless about what kind of flowers she likes, get different flowers from 30 species. However, you can also go on a more unconventional way: purchase her a bouquet of flowers made out of chocolate; she will surely appreciate it.
Women also love jewelry; it is best if you know her style and what she prefers to wear. If she is more classic, you can buy pearls or vintage jewelry, which is very trendy nowadays, if she is more of a free spirit, purchase handmade jewelry or jewelry that is made out of real flowers.
If the 30 year old girl would need some time out from all her responsibilities, try to get her a spa gift certificate, which will allow her to relax through manicure, pedicure, a facial and massage. You can also try other gift certificates: adventure gift certificates- you can take her bungee jumping, scuba diving and so on.
If she is not that into adrenaline activities, then get her a gift certificate that will allow her to shop at her favorite store. Sometimes gift certificates are frowned upon, but let’s be realistic and admit that these cards offer the freedom of choice and instead of offering her clothes, accessories she will not like, it is better to let her decide.
As the age of 30 is an important step in someone’s life, you can even go with funny gifts: t- shirts, mugs with funny messages (“30 isn’t old…depressing, but not old”), a DVD with the most important events and news about what happened in the year she was born and others.11
After the whole turmoil that his/ her 40th milestone birthday caused last year, you should give the 41 year old a break this year. This time focus on their hobbies, interests, lifestyle and maybe think about what they would want to do: maybe try new experiences or go to a place they have never seen before.
A 41 year old woman is interested in how she looks, in taking care of herself and trying to exercise more. Therefore, you can purchase a spa gift certificate in order to give her a chance to relax by having a manicure, facial, pedicure and even a massage. If you have noticed that she is more into sports nowadays, you can buy her fitness equipment that can easily find its place into her house or even a yoga set.
Of course, if you know her better, a perfume or some jewelry are not bad ideas; however, know what scents she likes and what kind of jewelry she mostly wears.
As for men, it’s kind of the same situation as for women; some of them do start to pay more attention to the way they treat their bodies. Therefore, a boxing bag or some snickers for the jogging lovers could be great ideas. If the 41 year old man is a business guy, try to get him a good suite or a nice tasteful brief case.
There are also gifts that go great for both genders. You can never go wrong with a good book; if the 41 year old is a friend of yours, then you should know what kind of domains he/ she is interested in. Gadgets, everybody loves and needs gadgets nowadays. Especially if you are dealing with very active people that need permanent interaction with their email, social networking and other features, a smartphone will surely come in handy.11
Turning 40 is a very important moment in an adult’s life; this special occasion can bring up some negative feelings, nostalgic feelings, but it can also be an occasion to get together with your best friends and your family. You can choose from several types of gifts: from ordinary, hobby centered gifts to gag gifts or going out gifts.
Celebrating a 40thy birthday should be spent with your closest friends and family. If your friend turns 40, you can organize a barbecue party where he will do nothing and just wait to be pampered. You should take care of all of the grilling and make sure you cook his favorite foods.
If your wife is turning 40, there is a good opportunity of showing her how much you care. Take her out on a special dinner to a classier restaurant, where you can offer her a beautiful jewel or a perfume she loves. After this, you can go and see one of her favorite movies; she will surely appreciate the whole experience.
When people turn 40, they start thinking about eating healthier, exercising more and even relaxing more. Therefore, you can get them a subscription to a healthy cooking class or purchase them a book about healthy eating; you can also give them a one year subscription to a gym class or a spa center.
Ones of the most popular gifts are, of course, the gag gifts. However, be careful, as some people may be a little bit too sensible about that particular day; therefore, make sure that your friend or relative has a good and strong sense of humor. Gag gifts range from mugs, t-shirts to personalized inflatable walker and time capsule gift sets.
Just keep in mind that you have to make the birthday girl/ boy feel better about themselves and not go down a slippery depressing hill. Make their birthday a fun and loving event.11
Food gifts are great presents, whether you make them yourself or you call upon an online store or your local bakery. The first thing that comes to mind when you think about food gifts are gourmet gift baskets. You can purchase a gourmet gift basket depending on two things: the foods that the birthday girl/ boy is crazy about or if he ever went to France or Italy, you can get him/ her a gift basket with foods that will remind that person of their time spent there.
For example, you have this “Weekend in Paris” gift basket that contains champagne, truffles, caramels, champagne biscuits and other foods, all from France. If your celebrated person is crazy about popcorn, you can get him a “Popcorn Lovers/ Night at the movies gift basket” that contains popcorn, lots and lots of popcorn; plus, you can end the night watching the birthday person’s favorite movie.
If you are good at cooking, you can make a gourmet gift basket yourself or better yet, fix a nice dinner. Think about what that person loves to eat, but has not eaten that particular foods in a while and prepare them for him/ her. Light up some candles, listen to some good music and they will surely appreciate the fact that you went through all this trouble only for them.
Great gourmet gift baskets for women are the ones that contain chocolate, cookies or if you know she has a hidden passion for junk food, you can even get her a “Deluxe Junk Food Bucket”. We all know women love flowers, but you can surprise her by getting a bouquet of chocolate flowers. Not only they are beautiful, but they are also delicious. You can order this type of a gift from your local bakery and ask them to make a chocolate bouquet in her favorite flowers.11

With custom or personalized gifts, you can go two ways: either purchase items from a store or online store that does personalized presents or, better yet, do it yourself. Personalized gifts are really appreciated, especially if we are talking about a relative or close friend, as they enjoy more a gift that you made or a mug on which you ordered to be put a very special message towards the recipient.
This online store offers a variety of items that you can personalize. Starting with the most common ones, you can purchase a t- shirt that says: “Vote for …” and you can add the birthday person’s name or you can buy a pretty funny mug called: “Personalized Mug Shot Coffee Mug”. All you have to do is provide a photo of the recipient, his/ her name and a small message.
If you want to be more sentimental, you can appeal to a picture frame that contains a side where you can put a picture and a side on which the producer can engrave your own message towards the birthday boy/ girl.
Now, as for the gifts that you can make yourself, not all of them require art skills. For example, you can put together a gourmet gift basket with what foods that particular person loves the most. If she loves snacks, fill that basket with all types of snacks and some sodas to go along with it. You can also make a gift basket for a music lover, for example. Fill it with CDs, DVDs, posters, mug, t- shirt, bracelet, scarf and a surprise two tickets to that person’s favorite band or solo artist.
If you are more skilled, but you do not want to make a custom gift on your own, you can appeal to a crafts course where you can make a vase or a mug that you can paint it yourself.11
Purchasing a gift for a 26 year old can be rather difficult, because we are talking about a young adult that basically has everything. Of course, if you want to get a more traditional gift you have to pay attention to that person’s personality, hobbies, interests and so on.
I want to take you on a different path with these gift ideas. For example, instead of getting the celebrated person a physical present, you should try to get all your friends together and try to organize a camping day and night. Just imagine how pleasant it will be for all you guys to be together around a fire and talking about everything that is going on in your lives. The birthday girl/ boy will definitely enjoy this kind of a gift.
Also, if you have saved some money along the time thinking about his/ her birthday you can offer them a beautiful trip to whatever place they wished they would have visited. This way they will know a different culture, eat different kinds of foods and meat new people. However, this type of a gift can cost you some money, therefore it does require a little bit of ahead thinking.
Other great ideas for a 26th birthday are the so called adventure gift certificates; these cards are simply great. This site offers you a variety of gift certificates, which are categorized by the type of experience you want your friend to go through. For example, you have “air and water” where you can find activities, like: whale watching, hot air balloon ride, sky diving, scenic airplane flight, wind surfing and others.
If the celebrated person is more adventurous you can try these gift cards: extreme stock car driving, fly in a real military aircraft, indoor skydiving, dirt bike riding, ice climbing. You literally have tones of choices and prices for all pockets; while the indoor skydiving gift certificate has a value of 85 dollars for two minutes, flying in a military aircraft costs 1425 dollars.11
