Most people might have retired by the age of 65, but that doesn’t mean all the fun has gone out of their life. If anything, the fun is just getting started as they have much more time to do exactly what they want. You can help them on their way by getting them the perfect 65th birthday presents that they will love and treasure forever.
When it comes to buying 65th birthday presents for your mum, there are some great options open to you. For example, she is sure to adore afternoon tea at one of a range of amazing locations right across the UK. With tasty sandwiches, cakes, scones and of course tea, as well as some beautiful surroundings, she’s sure to love this gift. An alternative trip out could involve a visit to a spa, where she will be pampered like a queen and have the time of her life. This could be the perfect way to celebrate her birthday and relax into the slower pace of retirement.
Retirement also leaves more time to explore skills you’ve always wanted to develop, so a great gift for any 65 year old would be cooking classes. There are course available for every style of food imaginable, from Indian to Thai, Italian to French and British. So, if your mum or dad has always been great in the kitchen but is in need of a few new skills, this could be the perfect gift for them.
There is also some fantastic 65th birthday presents available for your dad, so you will have loads to choose from. For example, if he likes his cars then he is sure to love the Ferrari and Aston Martin Driving Experience. Most people never get to own wonderful cars like these so this could be the opportunity your dad has always dreamed of. He’s also sure to love a steam train journey for two, where he’ll get to take a trip on the Cathedral Express and experience rail travel as it used to be, complete with the romance and excitement of it all.
If you are buying 65th birthday presents for someone who is slightly more traditional then don’t panic, because there are good options available here as well. For example, a personalised bottle of wine, cava, champagne or whiskey is always guaranteed to go down well. You can choose their favourite beverage and then have the bottle personalised so they will know that you put thought and effort into choosing the right gift for them. They are also sure to love a framed newspaper from their date of birth, giving them an insight into what was going on in the world on the day they were born.
