60th Birthday Gift Ideas
The Oxford dictionary defines birthday as, “The anniversary of the day on which a person was born”. Birthday is probably the most special day in the calendar for every person. This day is bound to be the happiest and most celebrated day of the year. And birthday celebration means cakes, candles, cards, prayers, flowers, balloons, blessings, party and last but not the least the birthday gifts. In a person’s life, there are probably three most celebrated birthdays, his 1st birthday, his 18th birthday, that is the day when he becomes a citizen, and his 60th birthday, the day when he registers himself as a senior citizen. It signifies that he has completed his hard worked life, and now it is time to enjoy the rest of the life on savings.
At the age of 60, many people decide on how to live life, some plans for a quiet and inactive life, whereas some still goes on in order to strive for more. Pablo Picasso said, “One starts to get young at the age of 60, but then it is too late”. But the great Sylvester Stallone said, “I wanted to show, I had guts at age 60. Just because society says I am old, does not mean that I am. I am pursuing happiness, even if it makes the people around me unhappy”. So, here are some ideas on what to gift these old men with so much difference in mentality and opinions. A scrap book filled with photos, mementoes which had comprised that person’s life. A bouquet of flowers with a self made birthday card is always a birthday special. Organise a theme party, titles can vary from Aged with perfection, the big 6 – oh! , Sweet 60. A surprise birthday party can be the best gift ever. There is nothing better than spending one’s 60th birthday with childhood friends and family and grand children are a cherry on the cake.
