If you have a grandfather, father or close family friend who will be turning 65 this year, you'll want to present him with a gift that is extra special. Taking his interests and tastes into consideration is essential, and you and your loved ones may also want to come up with gifts that have a truly significant meaning, since a 65th birthday is often highlighted as a time to celebrate a man's life achievements.

Retirement Gifts

Gifts that will help the birthday boy relax and enjoy his impending or brand new retirement are great for a 65th birthday. He may enjoy a sophisticated armchair for the living room that is plush enough for him to sit comfortably and enjoy his favourite TV shows. If you're purchasing a 65th birthday gift for a man who is retiring soon and hasn't had the chance to go fishing or camping often, a high-end fishing rod or sleeping bag will make appropriate gifts as well. Or, you can put together a retirement gift basket for your grandfather that includes homemade versions of his favourite snacks (popcorn, crisps), DVDs of the shows or movies he's been wanting to catch up on, and a few passes for playing golf at the local country club.

Wish List Gifts

Giving the guest of honour a gift that he's always wanted is a memorable way to help him celebrate his 65th birthday. Think about something that your loved one has always wanted to do, and try to grant his wish; it may be necessary to work with other family members on this. For instance, everyone could pitch in to pay for his vacation to Europe if he's always wanted to visit Italy and France. Or, your group of friends and family members can work together to hire contractors and designs to convert his garage into a wood shop if he loves building things. Presenting this gift at a home birthday party will allow your loved one to enjoy his present right away.

Sentimental Gifts

Birthday gifts that will hold a special place in the birthday boy's heart can also be given on a 65th birthday. If you're deciding on a gift to give a close friend celebrating a 65th birthday, a framed poem by his favourite author that describes the friendship the two of you share is a wonderful gift. An oil painting of all your father's children and grandchildren presented at his birthday dinner is a beautiful present he can display in his home. If you're a musical family, you can put together a concert for your grandfather, in which members of the family (including the children) sing all his favourite songs. It's also a good idea to put together a slideshow or DVD presentation that highlights wonderful family memories throughout the years in pictures, or a presentation featuring different members of the family telling the man how special he is.
