50th Birthday Present Ideas - Gifts for Someone Turning Fifty

Need a gift for someone reaching the golden fifty? Here are 50th birthday present ideas.

Turning 50 is a huge milestone in a person's life. Not only does it celebrate half a century worth of living, but by the time you reach 50, you've inevitably seen a lot and done a lot, although there's still much left to do.

Many people start looking at their 50's as a time to really begin celebrating life and relaxing, while some people go off in an entirely new direction and discover new hobbies and pastimes that they hadn't partaken in before.

So what do you get someone who is turning 50?

There are a variety of 50th birthday present ideas out there. Some are humorous, some are practical, and some continue giving after the moment that they are received.

"Clubs" are becoming very popular and enrollment into these clubs can be a one of the best 50th birthday present ideas. The "Wine of the Month" club sends a bottle of wine to the recipient every month. There is also a "Fruit of the Month" club as well, which does the same thing. There is even a "Flower of the Month" club and a "Plant of the Month" club, too.

A really fun present is the "Memory Lane Custom Art Print." This is an original piece of artwork that uses graphics, images, and topography to show the person's most memorable moments and recollections.

You can also design your own "Time Capsule" for the person if you are feeling creative. Or, you can purchase one if you're not. The 1960 Time Capsule costs around $40 and includes things that were popular in 1960, including a bag of marbles, a Fifteen Puzzle, a Slinky Jr., a mood ring, nostalgic candy, a booklet full of facts and figures from 1960, and a humorous old style report card.

For something that is still entertaining, as well as thought-provoking, there is also the popular book "50 Things to Do When You Turn 50." It contains 300 pages of essays and ideas for those people who are ready to move on with the next chapter of their lives.

A lot of people start traveling more in their fifties. Either they are looking at retirement, or their children have started their own lives and they have now found that they have more time on their hands. If your friends or loved ones are avid travelers, then you might want to think about getting them something for the road. A travel guidebook, embossed and leather-bound passport holder, or even leather bound journal or photo album can all be good 50th birthday present ideas.

If you're at a complete loss, or if the person that you are buying for seems to have everything, then traditional gift certificates are almost always appreciated. However, instead of simply giving them a certificate in an envelope, try to add other items to the gift. For instance, if you are providing a certificate to Williams and Sonoma, then include an inexpensive mixing bowl, mixing spoon, and magnet to the gift set as well.

Above all, when considering 50th birthday present ideas, keep in mind that you are purchasing for the person and not for the age itself. Therefore, when you're trying to decide what to get, make sure that it fits the personality and individuality of the person that you are buying for.
