Celebrating one's 75th birthday is indeed a glorious and special occasion. More so for the children because rarely do they get the opportunity to celebrate the platinum jubilee of their parent's birthday. So it's quite the expected thing that to make this occasion memorable, you will start planning for something special. A party maybe? With all their close friends and relatives perhaps? But is that enough to make the birthday grand? What about the gifts? Cause, really, is any birthday complete without gifts? And since it's the 75th birthday we are talking about, no ordinary gift will do either. Then what? Ideas for that will follow in the next section.
75ᵗʰ Birthday Gift Ideas for Dad
Memory Locked Album
At this age, a photo collage containing snapshots of all wonderful moments of his life would be an excellent memorabilia for him. Arrange the pictures chronologically, right from the day he was born, i.e dad as a kid, dad as a college grad, dad on job and then dad wooing your mom. Wrap it beautifully and gift him.
Gifting your dad his favorite sport goods or hobby items is also a good way to let him feel active at this age. You can present him golf bag figures, billiard cue, fishing poles, etc. This would further rejuvenate his mind and he can engross himself in pursuing his hobby at his leisure hours.
75ᵗʰ Birthday Gift Ideas for Mom
What else could be her best companion at this old age? A pet? Right. If she is fond of animals and birds, just present her a cute dog or beautiful species of birds. Passing time with pets will definitely enliven her mind. The pet will also be happy to get an oldie mistress.
Message of Love
You can write down your experiences with your mom by glorifying her company with you right from your childhood till date. Make her feel special by emphasizing how much she means to you and that she is still the world for you. These words of belonging, attachment and love would definitely add a smile on her lips.
At this age, your mom must be engaging herself into worshiping Gods and performing rituals. If this observation is true, then gift her holy books or idols of Gods and Goddesses. I'm sure the happiness she derives cannot be equaled to anything else.
