The 75th birthday is a milestone that should be celebrated both by thinking about the future and remembering the past. A 75-year-old father should have the chance to think about his family and his life up to this point. Let him recall memories, spend time with family and celebrate his accomplishments.
History Books and Videos
Let Dad relive some of his memories with books about events from throughout his life. Each generation has its defining moments. He should enjoy reading different accounts about those times. Documentaries and shows from channels like History are available for purchase. Topics ranging from Presidents to wars are all available, normally for under £32. After watching a video with him, ask him what he thought and let him recall some of his memories from the time. Thinking about these times and spending time with loved ones will turn out to be the real gift.
Take a trip to visit Dad, or take him on a trip to somewhere new or somewhere that brings up old memories. He will enjoy getting to see new places, or having the opportunity to tell stories about the old places. Fly, or, better yet, take a road trip to get maximum time with him. Catch a baseball game on the way at a local minor league ballpark and ask him to talk about when he saw a baseball game as a kid.
Put together a scrapbook or video of family memories. Bring the whole family to watch or look through the book with him. He can look through the pictures and see the family he helped to create and realise the legacy he will leave behind. Use this time to tell funny family stories and remember those who can't be at the birthday celebration. Leave a page open at the end of the scrapbook to take a family portrait during the birthday celebration.
