A good 50th birthday present is a personalized canvas or a plaque. Other good gifts include photos and customized photo frames.
When purchasing a 50th birthday present for someone, take their hobbies or likes into consideration. For example, if the birthday person collects wine glasses, a personalized set is a wonderful gift. Gift baskets are also a good choice. Wine, candy or specialized food baskets work well, especially if the gifter is not sure what to purchase. Other ideas include gift cards, flowers or plants. Making a donation to a charity on the behalf of the birthday person is another idea.
