60 Hits CD

Create a unique music CD set with a compilation of songs that were No. 1 hits on the Billboard Chart on the birth date of each year for the past sixty years. Download the songs from an Internet tunes site and use your computer's compact disc system to create the CD or download them directly to the gift of a digital music player. Print a list of the songs titles, artists and years they topped the chart to give along with the music.

Personalised Gifts

Turn an otherwise ordinary gift into a one-of-a-kind treasure by personalising it with the birthday person's name and a message of Happy Birthday. Gifts can bought and engraved at shops that specialise in personalised items or bought and designed by hand to add a personal touch. Use fabric markers, craft paints and stencils to add a message to gifts such as throw pillows, canvas tote bags, scrapbooks blankets, T-shirts or caps.

Sweet Treat Gifts

Craft a sweet cake display made from miniature candy bars. Attach miniature candy bars around the outer edges of styrofoam rounds and stack to create a layer "cake" that is equally visually appealing and satisfying to the sweet tooth. Get creative and design your cake layout to 60 candy bars or stake 60 lollipops into the top of the styrofoam to look like sixty candles atop the cake.

A cookie bouquet is another sweet gift option. Bake cookies on lollipop sticks, tie with ribbon and present the birthday girl with five dozen cookie flowers arranged in a basket or vase that serves as a functional gift to use once the cookies have been enjoyed. Have the cookie ribbons or basket personalised with a message of "Happy 60th Birthday."

60 Gifts

Because 60 is a multiple of 12, it is easy to give a gift that will last for 60 months. Give the birthday boy a five-year subscription to his favourite magazine. Depending on your budget, other five-year gift ideas include beer or wine of the month, fruit of the month, DVD of the month and candle of the month. Consider the birthday person's favourite hobby and seek an "of the month" service based in the theme of that pastime.
