A man’s 50th birthday is an important milestone. Make it a birthday he’ll fondly remember by getting him a memorable gift. What parts of his personality are not fully expressed? Underneath it all, is he an intrepid adventurer? An undercover James Bond? A little boy who likes to play outside? Tap into his hidden personality to make his 50th birthday gift special.


Give your husband an experience he’s always coveted for his 50th birthday. Is there something he has always wanted to do, but has put it off due to time constraints or money? Now is the time to make sure he gets to live his dream. Perhaps it’s rafting in the Grand Canyon, piloting an aeroplane or travelling to Mongolia. Buy the tickets, lessons or equipment he needs to live his dream, and enjoy the delight on his face when he opens the package.

Crystal Decanter Set

Give your husband a crystal decanter set to add some class to his nightly nip of bourbon, if he indulges. It’ll add a touch of class to an otherwise mundane ritual, and he will be pleased to serve guests in style. It’s not something a 20-year old would typically own and befits his maturity.


Capture the spirit of the little boy in your husband by giving him a new bicycle. If you live in the country or near trails, consider a mountain bike. If you live in the city, get a bike appropriate for that environment. According to Outside Magazine, “A true city bike is lighter, has upright geometry to give you a better vantage in traffic and features mounts for racks and fenders to help you haul your wares.” While you’re at it, get yourself one as well. He’ll enjoy riding the most if he has a partner. Show him that turning 50 means that he can have the time of his life.


Go to one of the major online booksellers and look up books by the date they were published. Choose the year your husband was born, or for an anniversary gift, the year in which you married. Choose a book that is either classic or obscure. It’ll make a memorable keepsake, as well as serve as a meaningful window into the past.

Car Audio System

Surprise your husband on his 50th birthday by upgrading the audio system that came with his car to something that offers an exceptional sound experience. Audiophiles will appreciate an audio system that provides clarity and adjustable controls. If he owns an MP3 player, make sure the system will support it. Personalise this gift by including a few CDs that take him back to the days when you first met.
