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
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
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

An 81 year old person needs to know that they are cherished, loved and not forgotten. You can buy gifts from online stores that are really inspired or you can make some gifts by yourself.
From online stores you can purchase things like: a photo frame with the message: “1930- A Very Good Year”, a poem dedicated to the birthday girl/ boy that you can compose yourself in the limit of 80 characters, poem that comes with a default frame made out of oak. You can also buy: “The meaning of your name”, which is basically a framed print that contains information, like: the origin of that person’s name and then general information on integrity, personality and so on. Plus, you get to compose your own 50 character message.
Two items that definitely stood out are these two DVDs; one of them has a summary of the most important news, political events, 1930 celebrities, sports and entertainment. The other one contains 20 hits of the year 1930 from artists like: Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Marlene Dietrich, Lee Collins and so on.
You can also make the gifts yourself; if the birthday person has tones of pictures, but that are just spread around in a great mess, you can arrange the most important photos in a very nice album. Next to the pictures, you can ask their friends or relatives to write little messages and I assure you that they will be thrilled to receive such a gift. You can also make a family video in which every member of the family talks about the celebrated person, what they like about them or maybe joke on the things that they never liked at that person or about the most special moments spent together with that person.
These two last gifts are perfect to offer at a birthday party when the senior is surrounded by his/ her loved ones and they can all laugh together, reminisce and have a good time.11
Turning 70 is definitely an important moment and there are three kinds of gifts that you can purchase to celebrate that particular person: nostalgic, reminiscent presents, looking towards the future presents or simple, ordinary gifts.
As for the more nostalgic persons, you can buy a set of Life magazines from the year in which the birthday boy/ girl was born and I think they will find it very interesting. You can also buy a beautiful frame and slip in there a picture of the whole family or better yet, try to manufacture some gifts yourself. You can make a memory book in which you can put photos, special messages from you, the family members and friends. As we live in the 21st century, you can follow the same recipe as the aforementioned, but using a DVD.
Looking towards the future presents include books on healthy eating, on special exercises that are appropriate for this age and you can even buy a food steamer that keeps all the vitamins and minerals of the vegetables and fruits in. All these items will help them by offering information on how to lead a healthy and still active life.
Besides all these presents, you can simply think about what that person loves: whether it is books, movies, music, sports and so on. You can never go wrong when you offer a good book or a DVD set with the best movies of the birthday person’s favorite actor. For men, a great choice can be a book about his favorite baseball player or a DVD with the most memorable game of his favorite baseball team.
For women, you can also buy: a spa gift basket or, why not, a spa gift certificate, so she can relax and have some fun, bouquet of flowers or potted flowers with which she can decorate her house or a cake.11
Turning forty is certainly a milestone for a woman. She can either take things with humor and laughs or she can be on the more dramatic side with: “My life is over” and other stupid phrases. This age is very important: the woman says goodbye to her thirties and enters the realm of 40s.
Gifts for this anniversary can range from gag gifts, humorous gifts to serious gifts. If you think about offering the birthday girl a gag gift, please make sure that she has a very strong sense of humor; otherwise, you will be in big trouble, my friend. If you shy away from the gag gifts, you can simply get her some nice humorous gifts that are a little bit lighter than the aforementioned. Therefore, you can give her books on the subject turning 40: “How did I get to be 40 and other atrocities” or “How to survive your 40th birthday: the complete guide to getting the care you need—and avoiding problems you don’t”
Looking to the more serious presents, women surely appreciate: a spa gift basket that comes with shower gels, tea, body lotion, hand cream, body butter and so on. Other great gifts: a perfume, a pair of earrings, necklace, shawl. If she is more of an intellectual, you can not go wrong with books: literature, art, science fiction. However, these gifts are much more personal and you do have to know the woman’s preferences and interests. If you do not know her very well, try to stay away from such personal presents.
Personalized gifts are also fun and cute: you can get her a mug with a special 40th birthday message, a personalized picture frame, a funny t- shirt with a special message for those turning 40. If you check online stores, you will find tones of options. Women also appreciate a traditional bouquet of flowers, cookies gift basket, chocolate gift basket, a cake that was especially made for her.11
