Experiences as gifts are a very original idea and, although they can cost hundreds of pounds, they can also be bought for under £50. For the thrill seekers, a ride in a powerboat is available or for something a little more sedate he can go on a helicopter ride. For something the whole family can enjoy, why not take three generations go-karting. Granddad can show dad and the grandkids how it's really done!
If granddad is a bit of an Elvis or Sinatra fan (and as a teenager in the swinging 60s he surely will be a fan) then maybe he would jump at the chance to be a crooner for the day. After all, it's not just teenage girls who want to be pop stars! For between £80 and £230 (depending on the length of the session) you can get granddad recording his favourite track ('Love Me Tender' is always a popular choice) in a professional recording studio with an engineer. If his granddaughter or grandson is another budding pop legend then there are sessions for two available and a recording of granddad and grandson recording 'My Way' will create memories that last a lifetime and a CD that will be played endlessly for birthdays still to come. Accompany this day at a recording studio with a personalised rock-star birthday card and you have created one of the most unforgettable 60th birthday presents of all time.
