8 decades of life ... of course, with all their ups and downs. With all achievements and failures, so many years deserve a standing ovation. If your dad is completing 80 years this birthday, it's time you take matters in your hands and do something big and special. Make this birthday worth remembering.
This day should add to all the special memories collected throughout his life. 80 years is a milestone very few achieve and those few, deserve a treat like no other. Let's see how you can do it.
Collect all his photographs that captured milestones in his life. His first birthday (this one will be great!), his first teen birthday, graduation day, wedding photograph, when his kids were born, when his grandchildren were born etc.
Take Him Away
The younger members of the family are busy with their jobs and other truckload of responsibilities. Finding time for each other becomes a little difficult with age. Children are always working and the grandchildren have school to attend.
Pick the most expensive liquor available in the store and gift it to him. Of course, everyone can drink to him to make it an even better gift. Pick up something of his taste.
Decorate the venue in a way that it resembles a retro movie set. Have everything planned in advance―the music, food, venue, invites, etc.
You will find a lot of software on the Internet that will aid you in making this gift. If there is still enough time for the birthday, you can make this montage and play it at the party.
