Birthday gifts for men over 50
50 isn't old anymore, so gifts for men over 50 can be fun or exciting. (three men with notebook image by GeoM from

Although 50 is still a milestone, being 50 and over 50 isn't as old as it used to be. Men over 50 are still enjoying life and are more active than ever. When selecting a gift for someone who's "over the hill," think in terms of fun and excitement. Remember no one is ever too old for a little fun.

Active Gifts

Men in their 50s are often active and enjoy outdoor sports to stay fit. If the man you have in mind already has a hobby, buy him accessories for it. Perhaps he could use a new tennis racket or a new golf club. Maybe help him develop an interest in sports activities by purchasing him a one-month membership at a local country club or health and fitness centre. Consider buying him a basketball and hoop, or some gear for racketball. Browse any sports store, and you're sure to find something to fit his interests.

Modern Toys

Just because a man isn't a teenager doesn't mean he doesn't keep up with the latest in technology. Buy him an iPad or a new laptop. Or for something less expensive, buy him the latest in accessories, such as the new Arc Touch mouse which can lay flat when not in use or pop-up for use. Maybe it's time to upgrade his system or set him up with a camera so he can do video calls to family and friends. Other electronic toys he might enjoy include RC (radio-controlled) aeroplanes, helicopters and boats.

Entertainment Gifts

For a lot of men, grilling their steak is a good way to spend an evening. Look into buying him a new grill or accessories for his grill. Plan an evening with friends where he can entertain his buddies while turning over a few steaks. Buy him a personalised steak brand with his initials for marking his steaks. Or instead, buy him sports tickets to watch his favourite team. For a more extravagant gift, get him a season ticket. Consider all his interests. He may prefer to go to a concert by his favourite band. Or he might really like that DVD collection of movies from a favourite star. Just ask yourself, what is his favourite form of entertainment?
