Gift shopping is sometimes a hard thing to do, and because of that, often gets put off until it’s almost too late. We put together the best 50th Birthday Gift Guide for her and him, so you don’t have to put off finding their perfect gift that represents the impact they have had in your life.
As a kid, every birthday is one step closer to a small milestone. When you reach your first year, your parents go all out for a party none of us actually remember; you smash some cake, have your first bites of addicting and delicious sugar, and receive gifts you will soon outgrow. Fast forward to your 5th birthday, where you are no longer a toddler and get to choose what theme you want your party to be. Your 10th birthday, the first time you hit double digits, then when your 13 you’re no longer a little kid—you’re a teen—then 16 you can start to drive, 18 you’re an “adult” and after that, the rest of your birthdays after 21 just remind you how much, every day, you’re getting older.
For some, their 50th birthday is just a reminder of their older age. But your loved one’s 50th birthday should be more than just a number; it should be a time to remember the adventures they have had and a celebration of the adventures that await. Your loved one’s 50th birthday is a big milestone; there are now five decades of memories, adventures, additions to their family, and now five decades that have formed your loved one into who they are today.
