He's a great guy and it's his 60th birthday. Whether he's your husband, your father or your best friend, this milestone birthday is an opportunity for you to show him how much you truly appreciate having him in your life. So rather than shopping for the usual necktie or a pair of cashmere socks -- go for the gift that will give him a rush -- something he will not soon forget.
Get him a pair of seats at his favorite sporting event, the seats he's always dreamed about. Make the next season in his life one to look forward to. They don't have to be courtside seats to make him feel like a kid again. Package it with a team jersey and the pleasure of your company and he'll be your best friend for life.
Take him out for a test drive. A man only celebrates his 60th birthday once, so take him out for a test drive in his dream car. Give him the gift of getting behind the wheel of his all-time favorite sports car. It may sound simple, but this could be your way of handing him the keys to a dream come true, even if it is just for a quick spin around the neighborhood.
Deep Sea Fishing Trip
Give him a fish story of a lifetime. Send your greatest catch out deep-sea fishing with some of his buddies. This will be a great opportunity for him to hit the open sea, bond with his buddies and attempt to catch that infamous fish that has managed to allude many a great fisherman. Nothing says I love you like giving the man in your life, at any age, a manly trip with his buddies.
His Favorite Photograph
Give him the gift of nostalgia. Chances are the birthday boy is feeling nostalgic for his youth. Find an old photograph of him, one of his favorites, and have it enlarged. Then have it framed so he can hang it up in his home. Pick a photo that has sentimental value, like the photo taken of him while he served in the Marines or the one with he and his bride on their wedding day. You might choose an old family photo when he was just a baby or the one taken of him sitting in his first car. Be creative. It just might be the gift and memory that he treasures most.
