A big holiday is ahead — the head of the family turns 50 years old. The gift should be special, serious. In gratitude for a really nice present, you will receive the most sincere smile and “thank you” from your loved one.
We decided to help all the wives who are preparing for the golden anniversary of their spouse, and have compiled a voluminous list of ideas for what to give her husband for 50 years.
Top 25 best original gifts for husband for 50 years
Let’s talk about the best gift options. We are sure that you will find something interesting in this section. And if you can’t get your bearings, then there is an impressive list in which you can definitely find a gift for your soulmate.
1. Fishing kit
Even if a man is not an avid fisherman, but is not averse to sitting on the shore for a quiet hunt a couple of times a year, he probably has a fishing rod and some tackle. But such amateur fishermen often have a limited and democratic set.
We offer to give a complete set of angler for 50 years, which includes:
- fishing rod (spinning, donk or float),
- rod stands,
- landing net,
- sometimes even a chair.
2. Tourist tent
With age, many men wake up craving for country trips. They remember their youth, how they nt with their comrades to conquer forests and slopes. Today, equipment for tourism is produced convenient and thoughtful. You can please your husband on his birthday with a new tent. Go for quick builds with taped seams, ventilation and an extra inner tent.
You can cook fish, meat and vegetables on the barbecue oven. If you have a dacha or live in your own house, then the grill is a good gift idea for your husband for 50 years. Choose a device with legs and wheels or consider desktop models. There are two types on sale: on coal or on gas — you need to attach a fuel tank to them.
If your husband does not refuse the pleasure of preparing a truly “male” dish — barbecue or the like, you can give him a smokehouse. The design is similar to a barbecue: it folds up and does not take up much space. The device is simple and easy to use. You can experiment with wood chips (it is sold) and ingredients.
5. Suit for outdoor activities
Such an “outfit” is suitable for trips to the forest for mushrooms, hunting or fishing, for hiking. Protective overalls that do not restrict movement, made of utility fabric, sewn so that mites and various biting insects cannot reach the skin.
If possible, it is better to take a colored suit, rather than a protective khaki: if necessary, a traveler dressed in bright colors is easier to find in nature.
He’s a Swiss Army knife. Perhaps such a thing will seem small and nondescript to you, but for the anniversary you want to give something solid. But knowledgeable people understand: good multi-tools cost decently. If your spouse is a jack of all trades, then if he takes a quality tool, he will immediately appreciate the thoughtful design and understand that the thing is expensive and reliable.
On sale you will find different combinations. Some even have cutlery, a flashlight, pliers, etc. Choose what suits your husband.
7. Electric scooter
It may seem that this is for the young and reckless, but as a present for a beloved husband for 50 years is not suitable. But in fact, this is an excellent convenient form of urban transport and an option for leisure. And if you choose the right model, more expensive, but also more durable, then you can ride on the country road without fear and with comfort. We also recommend paying attention to models with a seat.
Important: if the husband does not have a driver’s license, do not buy a scooter more porful than 250 watts.
A gift option for fans of water tourism: measured, not extreme.
You don’t need any special skills – just row with an oar, admiring the views from the water along the way. You can ride standing or sitting (and you can sunbathe lying down).
The projectile is relatively safe, not traumatic and does not involve extreme. But it makes you keep balance and use all muscle groups of the body. Despite the large size when inflated, the SUP can be deflated and folded compactly into a bag.
9. Universal por station
This is a combined simulator: almost the entire gym in one device. True, it’s cumbersome. With it, you can press, pull, swing — everything you need to keep in shape. Models are supplied with programs and instructions. And for the price, such a station is quite comparable to an annual subscription to the gym.
10. Breakfast station
There are different combinations of this miracle machine. Some know how to fry bread, eggs and sausages, others also brew coffee. Some appliances are manual, others with different cooking programs. For example, for hot dogs, French sandwiches, etc. If it is not customary in your family that the wife prepares breakfast for her husband in the morning, and he is used to “cooking” himself, then he will be delighted with such a birthday present.
11. Urban bacweack
Fashion trends of recent years are aimed at utility, practicality and efficiency of clothing and accessories. Business bags and briefcases fade into the background. Even in office skyscrapers, there are a lot of white-collar workers in suits and city bacweacks on their backs. Fits more, ar more comfortable. There are different models: more sporty or strict — made of leather.
If you and your spouse are not superstitious, then you can safely go to a watch boutique for a gift. There are not many such accessories for a man! One watch for going out, another for casual ar, and one for sports. Universal and win-win gift for 50 years.
Gift for all fashionistas. Cufflinks are a rarity these days. Practical buttons beat this historical accessory. Although designers produce very interesting models: from precious metals and stones, or vice versa — from inexpensive materials, but with a unique shape. You can complement the present with a luxurious shirt, which just has holes for an accessory.
A simple yet effective dental instrument that is great for home use. It is enough to pour water or a special solution inside, and then with a jet you can massage the gums and clean the interdental spaces.
There are portable devices (water is poured into the body tank) or stationary (water tank separately). The second ones are more thoughtful and perfect, but bulky, and the first ones can be easily taken on the road, but during cleaning you will have to replenish the tank a couple of times.
15. Electric shaver
The rotary shaver is perfect for a close shave, while the foil shaver is great for contouring to shape your beard or stubble. Modern devices can shave dry or with foam. They are easy to clean, waterproof and charge quickly.
16. High pressure washer
It is not necessary to buy a model from a German company that plays the first violin in this area. Today there are many budget and worthy analogues on the market. The main purpose of this device is to wash the car. And it will also come in handy in the country: wash the house, the parking lot, tidy up the carpets, etc.
16. Bath set
Includes caps, essential oils, slippers and bathrobe. Sometimes they put herbal preparations so that after the bath you can make tea. There are kits with a Velcro tol (you can wrap it around your waist) and zaparkas — these are fragrant dry herbs that are designed to prepare an infusion for fragrant soaring. The best sets are collected in a convenient bag or a beautiful box.
By the age of 50, many men accumulate a motley set in the garage or at home: grandfather’s screwdriver, father’s hammer, pliers that are left over from a long-standing repair. If your spouse uses the tool regularly, give him a modern tool set packed in a special box, and sometimes even in a suitcase on wheels. Such a kit closes almost all scenarios for a home master.
The best cameras for cars are also equipped with a radar detector and a navigation system. There are recorders with two cameras: the second is mounted on the rear window. Preferably, of course, a model with a screen. But if the cabin is cramped, then you can take the option without a display.
19. Luggage box
This is a compartment that is installed on the roof of the car. If your husband has a relatively new domestic car or a foreign car produced over the past 20 years, then any box will do. In other cases, it is better to consult a specialist.
Choose models with a central lock, with UV protection and a load capacity of 50 kg.
20. Car refrigerator
It can be pored from an outlet in any car. Or connect to a regular network of 220 volts. The auto-refrigerator is useful when traveling, for picnic trips, fishing, hunting. Some models also know how to warm up the contents.
21. TV box
Makes the TV “smart”: with its help, you can access the Internet from the TV, watch b channels, streaming services, download applications. For the set-top box, you need an Internet wire or Wi-Fi. You can insert flash drives and hard drives into set-top boxes to watch downloaded movies.
22. Wireless headphones
Must-have gadget. Connects to phones, tablets, laptops. Works for a long time: an average of 6–10 hours on a single charge. There are different form factors: full-size with large ear cushions (the part of the headphones that comes into contact with the ears) or compact in a neat case.
23. Smart home kit
Suitable for apartments and country houses, provided that everything is in order with the Internet in the latter. Through the central control panel, you can configure various devices: sockets, lighting, video cameras, security devices. And receive information remotely, for example, using sensors for opening doors and windows. Management is carried out via a smartphone.
24. Facial care set
Modern gentlemen do not shy away from taking care of themselves. Moreover, high-quality men’s cosmetics will not be superfluous if the passport is already 50 years old. Give your husband a cosmetic kit: eye cream, aftershave moisturizer, cleanser, etc. There are interesting combinations along with shaving accessories and manicure sets.
25. Set for making tinctures
Another gift idea for those who like to cook something more complicated than scrambled eggs. Packets of herbs and spices are placed in the infusion set, which can be mixed with different spirits, aged and obtained a new taste. The best producers arrange everything in beautiful boxes and even put bottles for infusion.

How to choose a gift for your husband for 50 years
Sergey Evdokimov, marketing director of the Milarky online gift store recommends adherence to four rules.
- Think about your spouse’s hobbies.
- Pick up a gift that makes his everyday work easier.
- Refuse to purchase on your own taste. Often the tastes of the spouses do not match, and the things that seem necessary to you, the man will consider trinkets.
- Make a surprise. If a person treats this kind of gifts ll. Such a present evokes emotions, it is they who are remembered, and not the thing itself.
More original ideas: gift options for husband’s anniversary
From myself, will add a few more recommendations that will help make a great gift for the anniversary.
- Do not forget that the gift does not have to be material. We live in an era of digital service subscriptions and entertainment gift certificates. If nothing comes to mind from a traditional set, look this way.
- If the thing that you have chosen as a gift is in a budget and expensive version, and you are limited in finances, then contact your friends and relatives. To buy a gift for a purse. Perhaps they are also racking their brains on what to give a loved one for 50 years. And so you buy a quality gift together.
- Went through 120 gift ideas, but didn’t like any of them? Ask your husband directly: “What do you want for 50 years?” There is a chance he will ansr. And if he is not straightforward with you, then you also act with cunning: start a conversation from afar, ask his opinion about various things and inadvertently ask if he needs such a thing or not.
Popular questions and ansrs
We asked our expert to ansr the questions, Sergey Evdokimov, marketing director of the Milarky online gift store.
What can not be given to a husband for 50 years?
Tool kits, something for the car, home theater — all these things are good only for men who are passionate about this. A person who has never held a hammer in his hands hardly needs a set of tools.
It is definitely not worth giving clothes and shoes, despite their cost. These are everyday things, and 50 years is a major anniversary that you want to remember. A kind of Rubicon, when a person begins to look back at his life and analyze successes and failures.
Avoid cosmetics as ll. Even an expensive perfume that you buy at your own discretion may not please your husband.
What a surprise to arrange for her husband on his 50th birthday?
Many adults continue to be children at heart, so you can choose a more “childish” surprise. Send your husband to an adult camp for a ek, take him to a shooting range with real apons, arrange a meeting with old friends. You should not choose standard trips to Turkey for holidays or events that take place in ordinary life.
As a surprise gift, there can be both appliances and gadgets hidden in unusual packaging. For example, a large metal safe, an army box, or a black Kinder Surprise.
Where is the best place to celebrate your husband’s 50th birthday?
In summer, various pavilions near water bodies are popular. In winter, banquet halls or country hotels are most often rented. Moreover, the option with a country hotel is much more interesting, because in addition to the feast, you can visit a bathhouse, ride in a sleigh, etc. Organize active recreation for all guests. Of course, the cost of such a holiday will be high, but the memories will remain for a long time.
