Funny 60th Birthday Gifts for Men

Updated on September 12, 2014

Be Nice and Have Fun

But Don't Be Boring

Okay, I admit it, parties can be boring. Work parties, birthday go even though you don't really want to and you have to give a gift while you're at it and hope you don't embarrass yourself. I worked in an office for decades, so believe me, I know all about obligatory gifts - that's why I called the Zazzle gift store I opened the Obligatory Gifthouse. But I really think these gifts can make an event that's an obligation into something fun - and they don't cost a lot of money. Cheap is important. So get the man who's about to become sixty something he'll laugh at and that will make him happy...and that will also help break the ice at his party, and not break your own wallet. Then maybe when it's your turn, he'll do the same for you. If you're lucky...

Make a Man Turning 60 Laugh

He's turning sixty - cause for celebration, but also laughter. You will not find the usual "old fart" jokes here - or not many, anyway. These gag gifts for 60-year-old guys are classy, clean, and real lasting presents - not just something he'll stick in a drawer after a chuckle or two. These ideas are suitable for your male person, whether he's a coworker, dad, husband, relative, or friend.

You'll find hilarious 60th birthday t-shirts for men (some of them written by me), funny books about becoming sixty, and cool novelty items.
