Your dad's 75th birthday is a major milestone. He's officially lived a fruitful 3/4 century, so make sure to celebrate the occasion right with a great gift. Don't fall into the trap of getting boring framed pictures or a gift that's overly sentimental. Use this special occasion to give a gift that excites your dad and makes him feel like he's young again.

Old-Time Candy

As time passes, products that we enjoyed as a kid may disappear to make way for new products aimed at younger generations. This definitely holds true for candy. Whether you are 20, 30, or 40 years old, you know it's difficult to find the candy you enjoyed when you were little. Imagine how hard it is to find candy you grew up with if you're 75 years old! It may be difficult, but not impossible. Large speciality candy stores are now carrying hard-to-find candy from years past. These stores carry candy bars from as far back as the 1930s. You can use the Internet and a search engine to find a speciality candy store near you. You can also find websites like and find old-time candy that can be delivered to your door.

Newspaper or Magazine

The best way to get your dad excited about your 75th birthday gift is to get something unique and interesting. What could be more unique than finding the front page of a newspaper from the date your dad was born? You can call one of the major newspapers in the country ("New York Times," "Los Angeles Times," and so forth) and request a reprint of almost any front page from their archives. Or frame the front cover of a major magazine from the same year and month your dad was born. Major magazines like "Time" and "People" have old covers in their archives. You can call the magazine and request a reprint of the cover.

Music Collection

Few things make a person feel young again like listening to the music they grew up with. Old memories and good times come flooding back when you hear an old, familiar tune. Ask your dad what kind of music he listened to while growing up, if you don't already have an idea. Use this information and go to your local music store or find an online music store and buy your dad a collection of CDs that covers all of his favourite music.
