Reaching 50 is a major milestone in anybody's life and it should be given the celebration it deserves. Entering the 50s should be seen as a special achievement marking the beginning of a new decade that should be devoted to spending more time on oneself. So when someone special reaches the big 50, mark the occasion with a special present that will really pamper them and force them to put their feet up, at least for one day. A 50th birthday should be all about spending time with friends and family and letting the birthday boy or girl know how special they are so invite all their favourite people for a dinner or a party and let them know they are loved.
We don't often get round to telling those we love how much we appreciate having them around but a birthday is the perfect opportunity, so make sure your choice of 50th birthday gifts
does just that. Personalised gifts are the perfect way to show someone how special they are by appealing to the recipient's own unique tastes and preferences. Think about how they spend their free time and what makes them happy and try to choose 50th birthday gifts
to match. For example, if their major passion in life is sport, choose something related to their favourite team. The important thing is to find something that they would never buy for themselves and give them a special birthday treat they will not forget.
For a special 50-something lady that spends most of her time running around after other people, give her a chance for a break and treat her to a day of pampering to rejuvenate her mind and body. To really indulge her on her special day, why not send her for a health spa day, where she can enjoy a range of luxurious treatments, such as a facial or massage. She can complete her day of relaxation with full access to the swimming pool, sauna and even fitness classes if she is feeling energetic. This is a lovely way to show someone special how much you care and give them a well-deserved chance to take care of themselves for a change.
Or perhaps she would really benefit from being treated like a celebrity for a day with a deluxe glamour makeover to help her unwind and boost her confidence. Your gift could treat the birthday girl to a professional hair consultation and brand new style followed by a makeover with a professional makeup artist, who will give her hints and tips to help her recreate her striking new look at home. Once her new look is complete she can strut her stuff and enjoy a fun photo shoot with a selection of images on CD to keep and cherish for years to come. Giving someone special the chance to think about themselves for a change can really give them a confidence boost and make them realise that they are still young at heart. Even half a day spent focusing purely on their own desires will revitalise both her mind and body and give her a buzz that will stay with her for a long time after the event.
If you're looking for special 50th birthday gifts
to give a hardworking man a break, choose a personalised gift that will help him enjoy some birthday relaxation time. For a gentleman that enjoys the finer things in life, a lovely gift for a special birthday is a bottle of personalised birthday whisky. With a personalised colour label incorporating his name and birth year, this delicate Lowland malt will delight any whisky fan and give him a special memento of his big day that he can either share with his closest friends or keep just for himself. You can add your own special gift message to the professional label to commemorate his half century and wish him well for the years ahead.
50th birthday gifts can be light-hearted too and there are plenty of great little gifts to make them laugh as they reach this important milestone. For a female with a sense of humour, a fun little extra is the Life After 50 – Survival Guide for Women book. It does exactly what it promises and is full of amusing cartoons and witty observations to bring a smile to the face of any woman entering her 50s. It makes a great talking point for a girly party or night in and will delight anyone with a sense of fun.
So when someone special in your life is reaching the big 50, give them the chance to really relax and enjoy their big day with a special treat specially chosen for them. Your personal greeting and best wishes will be appreciated and they will really feel special, which is, after all, exactly how they should feel on such a special birthday.
