Birthday gifts for a 64-year-old male

Updated April 17, 2017

If you have a male loved one who has a 64th birthday coming up, you want to give him something that's meaningful but fun at the same time. You also want to consider his personality and tastes when purchasing a gift for him. If you want to be creative with your gift, make a personalised item for him that he'll remember for years to come.

Gift Bag of Classic Movie DVDs

If your loved one enjoys classic movies, you can give him a gift bag filled with classic movie DVDs, boxes of gourmet popcorn, and jars of homemade preserves with crackers. Some good movies to get him include Breakfast at Tiffany's, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Psycho and Catcher in the Rye. You can also include a birthday card with film-related decorations on it such as a camera or director's chair.

Set of Books

For the man who loves to read, get a set of books on his favourite subjects. For example, if he reads books about American history, visit the local bookstore and ask the clerk which books are the best ones to buy for those who like the topic. Also include with the set of books a small American flag and a patriotic postcard with a birthday message on it.

Tickets to a Wine and Cheese Tasting

If he enjoys wine and cheese, purchase tickets to an upcoming local wine and cheese tasting for him, and you may also want to give him a wine encyclopedia along with a gift card to his favourite wine seller.

Photo Album

If the man is your older brother, get some old photos you have of the two of you when you were both teenagers and young adults and create a photo album for him. In addition to the photos, paste paper labels of his favourite foods, pictures from his senior prom and graduation and a letter or card thanking him for his love and support.
