Some good 50th birthday ideas are spa services, adventure trips, humorous items and meaningful excursions. A 50th birthday gift can let the receiver enjoy a little self-care, get out of his comfort zone, know how much they are loved, laugh a little, or relax.
A self-care gift may be a massage gift certificate or other pampering experience. Someone turning 50 may enjoy learning or doing something new and fun, such as taking a lesson, skydiving, going on a trip, or attending a musical. Writing a letter is a great way to let the birthday person know they are appreciated. Gag gifts, such as prune juice and walkers, are good gifts for someone with a silly sense of humor. Making a donation in someone’s name is also an appropriate way to commemorate a birthday, suggests Mamiverse.
Theme gifts are a good idea, such as pairing a DVD with a fashion magazine and accessory or beach bag, with all the right accoutrement. A farm share or CSA may be just right for the health conscience birthday person. A chocolate shop tour, similar to a wine tour, is a more decadent option and available in many cities, according to The Huffington Post.
People of any age can appreciate a handmade gift. Something made in the kitchen, a crafty accessory, a rustic cutting board, or a felt iPad cover are gift options suggested by HGTV.
