For a guy’s 50th birthday unique gifts are important. A 50th birthday gift requires a certain amount of careful thought and creativity.

The question you have to answer is “What kind of things fit that description?”

A guy’s 50th birthday isn’t a time to cheap out and just grab a gift certificate at the last second, It’s time for something unique that takes his interests into account.

Coming up with such a unique gift will require you to get involved, plan, and most importantly, don’t wait until the last minute! Whether he’s your friend, son, father, or husband you can’t possibly hope to find truly unique gifts for his 50th birthday by waiting to the last second to do your shopping.

Finding Unique Gifts online

If you allow yourself time for shipping, you can search any of thousands of online shops, and come up with any number of great gift ideas. You can even personalize a lot of things with a monogram or favorite picture. If you use a photo, be sure to include a caption he alone will fully appreciate by speaking to one or more of his long time interests.

Here’s a few ideas to get you started. You can also even combine one or more of these for a really unique gift basket.

A calendar with a dozen photos of him, his wife and family

A tee-shirt or sweatshirt that you can have personalized with a slogan, photo, or joke. The funnier the better.

There are also sites where you can can create a unique birthday card which not only shows you cared enough to do more than buy something “off the shelf” but that you took the time to put some creative effort into it.

A chef would appreciate a deep basket filled with gourmet cooking supplies, spices, herbs and ofther things related to his cooking passion

A gardener would like a collection of stuff ranging from garden gloves, hand cream and special seeds to a long-sleeved shirt that you’ve had personalized to fit his personality.

For a wine lover the thing to do is find a bottle of wine, either a vintage he loves or one that he’s never tried but wanted to, along with a new corkscrew. You might also include a book on rare wines or a tour through a local winery if there’s one nearby.

In all this, the best birthday gifts are those that you create yourself. and in truth, it really is the thought that counts.
