Birthday presents used to be full of wonder and excitement. As children, we always had something new to look forward to whenever it was our birthday. It could’ve been a video game, a toy or even some new clothes. But as we age, the amazement starts to wear off and you’ll find yourself asking for less and less. When you approach 40 or even 50, there are probably only a handful of things that could surprise you as a birthday gift. You might have most of the material possessions you’ve ever wanted to own, and you’ve probably experienced a good chunk of what life has to offer.
So what do you get for someone approaching 40, 50 or any milestone birthday past 30?
Understanding the essence of a good present
First thing’s first; what makes a good present?
Some people would say that it’s the value of the presents while others would say it’s the thought that counts and not the present. Everyone has their own idea of what the ideal present is, but here’s our take.
A good present is something that makes memories.
Material possessions are great but at the end of the day, what sticks with us are the memories associated with the gift. You probably remember a bunch of presents you got in the past and while the physical item might no longer be around, you still have the experiences and memories of it in your head. Compared to today where technology can be outdated in a few months and people hoard too many material items and cheap personal gifts, our memories are becoming increasingly valuable and more sentimental, making a unique experience a far more interesting and appreciated gift to give someone.
This is exactly why our milestone birthday present boxes are such a great gift choice.
What makes our 50th Birthday Present gift boxes special?
Each of our 50th Birthday Present boxes contain 50 fun ideas that someone can do on their 50th birthday regardless of their gender. It’s a sleek black box with 50 colourful envelopes, each with a unique idea for an activity. They can be done with family, friends or even alone if they prefer a bit of peace and quiet. There are also five blank cards that you can use to add your own ideas. This gives you the option of personalising the gift for your recipient.
The included activity ideas are fantastic for encouraging your recipient to get more active. Some examples include going to karaoke bars and singing with your friends, having a movie night in with your favourite childhood films, or even going to play mini-golf.
These days, people around the age of 50 are far more active than previous generations, making them more likely to engage in fun activities. Be that indoors or outside, with their friends and family members, or even on their own if they prefer having some peace and quiet. This makes the 50th Birthday Present gift boxes a wonderful birthday present that can create some meaningful and long-lasting memories for your recipient.
