Turning seventy is a huge milestone. If you have a guy in your life who’s hitting the big seven-zero this year, you want to be sure to celebrate the big occasion with a bang — and a spectacular gift. Sure, you could pick off any old thing off the shelf and call it a day, but the best gifts require a little insight and creativity. Don’t worry if you’re all out of ideas. We’ll help you find something he’ll totally go nuts over.
How to Choose a 70th Birthday Gift
Choosing a 70th birthday gift doesn’t have to be complicated. If you know a little bit about the guy you’re shopping for, it can go a long way in helping you choose the perfect gift. For instance, if you know he spends every Saturday on the golf course, a golf-themed gift will be like a hole in one. Choose a personalized shadow box that displays golf balls or get him a set of personalized golf bag tags. Or, if he’s into chess, a custom chess set is sure to please.
If his grand kids are the apple of his eye, get something that celebrates the kiddos in his life, such as a personalized wall plaque or doormat with all the names of the little ones. Of course, there’s always going to be people in your life who are super hard to shop for. You really don’t know what they’re into and whatever you uncover just doesn’t seem to pan out. In this case, you can always turn to a delicious food gift. Food is something that’s universally loved, especially if it’s super delicious and arranged in a gift basket or box.
