A 60th birthday is a milestone in a person's life. Your father may start to feel like a senior citizen as his 60th birthday approaches, and may dread this milestone birthday. Therefore, it is important to show him how much you love and appreciate him by giving him a thoughtful gift.

If you father has a sweet tooth, fill a decorative straw basket with favourite candies from his childhood. Order a bunch of candy from the 1950s or 60s, such as candy cigarettes, root beer barrels, Mary Jane, candy buttons, Sweetarts and Walnetto's. You can find this retro candy by visiting websites such as GroovyCandies.com or FindGift.com. Add an old-fashioned birthday card and a decorative ribbon to complete the gift basket.
If your dad is the unselfish type and has spent his whole life sacrificing for others, treat him to an adventure gift. Well in advance, so he's not "on" to you, ask him about his dreams in life and what kind of adventure might interest him.
It may be that he wants to learn to scuba dive, try white water rafting or bungee jumping, travel on a safari, or sit behind the wheel of a race car. When his 60th birthday arrives, purchase this type of day for him and join in the fun, or make it a family adventure by including your mom and siblings.
Many fathers spend their lives working hard for their families and spending little money on activities for themselves. Now that his children are grown, make it clear to your dad that he has earned the time to pamper himself or enrich his mind with hobbies.
You can give this gift by yourself or have your siblings contribute. Present your dad with a season's pass to his favourite sports team's games, or golf lessons, or stained glass craft lessons, or even learning to cook Italian foods.
Giving a gift that lasts is a thoughtful way to give pleasure to this important man in your life.
