Finding the Perfect 60th Birthday Gag Present
It’s never easy to find the perfect gift, but it gets harder and harder as your gift recipient gets older and older.
Kids can be satisfied with cardboard boxes, but grandma will probably complain if you try to stuff her in there. Here are just a few ways to choose a better, more appropriate gift for 60 year olds.
Avoid Sensitive Subjects
Gag gifts should be funny for everyone, so don’t offend or disrespect your loved one with a gift that crosses the line.
For example, if they’re self-conscious about their weight, a spare tire joke isn’t going to make them laugh.
If they hate the fact that they’re going gray, a “silver fox” gift will be painful rather than reassuring.
It’s their birthday. Remember that. Their gift should make them happy.
Take Their Limitations Into Account
A funny t-shirt will lose some of its punch if the words are printed so small that your gift recipient can’t even read it.
A coffee mug will be rather pointless if the doctor has told them to quit drinking caffeine. Make sure that your gift will be genuinely useful to them, and keep their sight, vision and mobility issues in mind while you shop.
Do Something Fresh and Original
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with your gift, but you should make an effort to give them something that they’ve never gotten before.
Even if it’s just a key chain with a particularly clever saying, it should be something that will surprise and delight them. You can also wrap their gift in a clever way for extra fun.
They’ve been around for 60 birthdays now. They aren’t going to marvel at the same old gifts. You’ll need to step up your game to be memorable.
Do you like these 60th birthday gag gift ideas? We have plenty of other suggestions, but we had to stop somewhere.
What about you? What do you consider the perfect present for a 60 year old? Let us know!
