Golden Gifts

Traditionally gold represents the fiftieth anniversary of anything, including birthdays.

If your man is stylish and into the finer things, a gift in gold is an elegant commemoration of his fiftieth.

For the collector, a gold coin or coins is a unique and unusual gift.

If giving something made of gold is out of your price range, you can always give something relating to gold ... Gold Lottery, Gold Class, Gold Lottery and Gold Coast are just a few ideas.

Additions To His Man Cave

All men either have, or should have, a man cave. Whether it's a room, a shed, the garage, or wherever, it's somewhere to retreat for fun and for time out. Believe it or not, this need is primitive and it's deeply psychological!

For many men, reaching 50 years of age means having a bit more leisure time. Others are busy with work or family. Having a personal haven helps men deal with the pressures of everyday life.

Sports Gear

Most men really enjoy their sport, whether they are playing, watching, listening or reading about it.

He's turning fifty, so make your sports gift special. Give him professional equipment for whatever sport he plays.

If he prefers to watch, give him tickets or a season ticket to his favorite team's games.

If he's a reader, many sportsmen and women have written very interesting biographies (if you can get it autographed - top marks!!). A subscription to a relevant sporting magazine would also be a great gift.

There is also a huge amount of merchandise available for pretty much any sport. Choose something of quality for the ideal present.


Most guys love the latest gadgets. The very latest cell phone, tablet, tv and so on makes a perfect 50 year birthday gifts for men. The great thing about technology is that as long as you have a reasonable budget to begin with, you can usually get something really cool!

Whether he'd like a drive in a racing car with a professional driver, or take a flying lesson, or visit somewhere he's always wanted to go ... giving a personalized experience is limited only by your imagination.
