Finding the perfect gift for a 60-year-old: a fascinating challenge

Finding an appropriate gift for a 60-year-old is a difficult task, and one that requires careful thought. 

Indeed, this age is still characterised by a fascinating and profound diversity of interests. So, it’s important to take into account a number of factors, such as the lifestyle, health and physical limitations of the person concerned. It’s also very important to involve friends and family, as they can provide valuable ideas, insights and advice to guide the choice of gift.

Here are a few tips that may prove invaluable in buying the ideal gift.

– Unforgettable experiences:

 A trip to an exotic paradise (possibly by collecting from several people), a ticket to a theatre show, a musical, a front row concert. A ride in a Ferrari or Lamborghini, or a trip in a hot-air balloon are often the stuff of dreams, all accompanied by dinner in a gourmet restaurant. Here, all this can make a gift a unique experience.

– Course subscriptions:         

 For those with specific interests or who are culture lovers, an in-depth course or a course for activities such as photography, cooking, golf or painting can be much appreciated.

– Service subscriptions:         

 Subscribing to entertainment services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, or joining a wine or book club can help make every day a memorable experience.

– Join a yoga or meditation class:     

 If you want to adopt a mindset more focused on physical and mental well-being, a subscription to a yoga or meditation class can be an excellent choice.

– Advanced technology:        

 A touch of modernity and functionality can be provided by technological products such as tablets, mobile phones or smartwatches.

– Personalised luxury items: 

 Designer and prestige items such as handbags, purses and jewellery can lend exclusivity, and if they can be personalised, they are even more appealing.

– Historical tour:        

 For travel enthusiasts, a guided tour of an art city or a historic or natural site can be a surprising gift.

– Board games:          

 For fans of board games, it’s always possible to find a clever and inexpensive solution in specialist shops.

– Foreign language lessons:  

 In its genre, it can always be original. The possibilities are numerous. For example, online courses that offer teaching at different levels, to be followed with complete freedom and autonomy.

– Spa and well-being:

A relaxing weekend in a spa, with rejuvenating treatments, is gladly accepted, gives a good image and always leaves a good memory of the person who has offered it.

Of course, the simple act of thinking about a gift is an intimate and involving moment that is so important that the various interests of the recipient must be carefully weighed up to ensure a gift that enthuses and gratifies them.
