Milestone Birthday Gift Ideas

in Gift

Does someone you know have a milestone birthday coming up in the near future? If so, then you need to begin thinking about a gift. Milestone birthdays are special events that call for some innovative gift ideas. 

For the sake of our examples we will begin with the 40th birthday. Turning forty years of age is when many people suddenly realize that their youth is over. Being forty means that you are mature, responsible and a contributing member of society. It also is the BIG birthday for many people because this is when many of us stop to evaluate our lives and the paths we have chosen to take. Instead of giving the usual and  expected 'over the hill at 40' present consider giving a 40th birthday gift that is more unique such as a U.S. coin set from the person's birth year. These sets most usually come in handsome cases that can be personalized with the person's name and date of birth.

A nice 50th birthday gift idea is a simulated newspaper that includes the person's name, date of birth and your own personal message.  These fake newspapers generally feature events that happened on the person's birthday as well as many interesting facts that occurred that year. They typically come framed and ready to hang on a wall and could even include a fake announcement from the then-president of the United States. Imagine the laughter and joy this type of present would invoke! If you choose to be a bit more conservative with your present consider a 50th birthday gift basket that is filled with the recipient's favorite things such as cheese, wine and fine chocolates.

Some good 60th birthday ideas are things such as CD collections of hits from sixty years ago, or customized jigsaw puzzles that feature the person's photo. For a bit of humor, consider buying a bar sign that says 'I am not sixty, I am only $59.95!'. 

There are tons of great milestone birthday gift ideas out there meaning that you should not have a problem finding one that  perfectly matches the personality of the intended recipient. Remember that milestone birthday celebrations are those that are most often remembered. Why not make the day even more special by giving a gift that is sure to be cherished for years to come? Use your imagination and have fun choosing a terrific gift!
