Somewhere in the past, people used to see 50 as the beginning of an old age, but thanks to so many stars, this age has got a whole new interpretation, being seen as the best time of one’s life. It’s the age when your kids are already adults, when your job has reached the highest level and you can take care of all your responsibilities but have fun as well. Therefore, when you have to make a gift to someone born in 1961, you must pay careful attention and choose something that would suit her/his interests and taste and that would also express your feelings, care and respect. As long as you keep these aspects in mind when going to buy a 1961 birthday gift, your present will surely be appreciated and enjoyed.
50 brings lots of new experiences, maturity and knowledge. So, you must use all the information about the birthday boy/girl in order to get the right gift. One of the best ways to celebrate one’s 50th birthday is to make a gift that has to do with the year of his/her birth. Think of buying a box of retro candy and you’ll have the right 50th birthday gift and party idea. You can find this kind of boxes easily, which contain the best retro candies that will definitely remind him/her of the early years of his/her life. Go for a collection of 1961 coins and surprise your friend with a gift like this.
Opt for one of those magazines that were in fashion in 1961 and purchase one of them. Make your gift be reminiscent of old times and create a nice memory with your gift. You can even go for a calendar of the year of her/his birth. It contains information for each day of that year that would remind your friend/parent of those times.
Another way of celebrating a 50th birthday is to go for personalized gifts. The list of things that you can personalize is long enough for you not to have problems in picking one of them. You can opt for a 1961 coffee-mug, 1961 classic greeting cards, “born in 1961” mouse mats, 1961 buttons, 1961 apron, etc. Go for a T-shirt and add a funny message like: “Fifty. It’s not for old people anymore” or “I’m 21 with 29 years of experience”.
Get a gift that will gather some laughter and it will definitely be a winner. Buy her/him a book teaching him/her how to survive the midlife crisis and how to deal with school reunions. If he/she won’t find it funny, he/she will certainly think it’s useful. So, in any of the cases, it will be a good gift to make.
Opt for a gift basket and fill it with 50 items that she/he would use or write 50 reasons why he/she is so important to you. Make a wallpaper and give it to him/her. If it is a she, then go for 50 flowers and you will surely get a smile on her face.
Choose anything that would make him/her spend a good time. Opt for something that would help him/her perform his/her pastime activities more properly and pleasantly. It may be a collection of books or DVDs, supplies for gardening or some hunting/fishing accessories.
Opt for some elegant jewels for your 50th birthday girl or go for a spa products basket gift and you won’t go wrong. Throw a surprise party and gather all his/her family members and friends. Make your gift be a nice memory for years to come and you’ll have just the perfect 1961 birthday gift.11
