No one would disagree that the 50th birthday is a big day in most people’s lives. Since this day is a one-of-a-kind type of event, it deserves a totally unique 50th birthday present. Fortunately there are many different, yet unique, types of presents that you can buy for a custom and personal gift. Focusing on the first half century of life is a common theme for a 50th birthday party, giving the perfect chance to give one of the following 5 “This is your life” type of presents.
Personalized Magazine Cover
Chances are the birthday guest of honor has a hobby, favorite past time pr dreams of fame and glory. Having a custom personalized magazine cover made up to feature the birthday ‘girl or boy’ is an ideal way to make their dreams come true. Men can be featured as the hottest baseball star or the richest business executive while women can be put in the spotlight as the ‘Most Successful Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ or the sexy girl on the cover of a swimsuit magazine. All you have to do is search for the term “personalized magazines” online and you will be presented with quite a few options to choose from.
“Your Hometown” Framed Print
Give the gift of a trip down memory lane. How cool would it be for your loved one to be able to look at the candy shop they went to after school as a kid or the high school they graduated from or even the first house they lived in as an adult? There are companies that specialize in making framed prints of “your” town. It can be any town that you feel sentimental about. It does not have to be your hometown. When you order, you will have to provide information about the town, buildings and any landmarks you want included in the print, so be sure that you know exactly what you want in the picture.
“Birthday” Coins, Stamps, And Newspapers
Giving a coin, stamp or newspaper from the birthday and year is a sweet, affordable, easy to attain and personal gift. Archived issues of newspaper can be bought from the newspaper company provided they are still in business, as can magazines. You can also check out places like eBay for people selling old newspapers, coins, stamps, etc. Prices range widely depending on what you want and where you buy it. It may take some time looking but it will be worth it when you see the look on your loved one’s face.
Family Tree Quilt, Poster Or Book
If you have a good knowledge of the birthday person’s family, you can have a special item ordered to display their family tree. Family tree quilts are beautiful, warm and practical while posters and books can be looked at over and over again and even handed down as family heirlooms. Again, all you need to do is type in “Family Trees” in Google or another search engine and you are guaranteed to find something that you like. These items can be a bit pricey though, so be prepared to do some comparison-shopping for the best deal. A less expensive alternative is to purchase a blank family tree book and fill it in yourself then add some embellishments.
Most people have that one “special celebrity” whose autograph they would just love to own; sports heroes, movie stars, musicians and famous authors to name a few. By searching online and on eBay, you have a good chance of finding that one-of-a-kind item autographed by the person most admired by the birthday guy or gal. Depending on the fame of the person and the item purchased, prices can range from the rather affordable to the outrageous. You may even find a $15,000 football helmet signed by the winners of a super bowl! Once again, take your time and search around for the best deal. Be sure that what you get is authentic though; it is worth the extra money to get the real deal.
When shopping for a 50th birthday present, consider the personality of the person turning fifty. Personalized gifts are almost always a better choice than a common present and will better show how much that special 50-year-old means to you.
