gifts for a man

What to give a man for 55 years?

To please a man with a gift for his 55th birth­day, you need to choose some­thing real­ly worth­while. And for this you will have to show sen­si­tiv­i­ty, con­nect log­ic and act intu­itive­ly. In addi­tion, you have to under­stand the psy­chol­o­gy of the hero of the day and show your imag­i­na­tion. Then the right deci­sion will come to mind, and the gift will bring real plea­sure to the recip­i­ent.

Features of choice

Some guests invit­ed to the cel­e­bra­tion do not even think about the mean­ing and qual­i­ty of the gift. It is assumed that an adult man will favor­ably accept any thing as a con­grat­u­la­tion and tact­ful­ly keep silent if some­thing is not to his lik­ing. But the one who real­ly cares about the hero of the day wants to present him with some­thing real­ly nec­es­sary and impor­tant.

It remains to be seen what exact­ly. Every­thing is not as dif­fi­cult as it might seem at first. It’s eas­i­er to fig­ure out what inter­ests men and what present is most appro­pri­ate if you divide the exist­ing options into cat­e­gories.

First of all, one must imag­ine what the hero of the day is in his respectable and rather con­tro­ver­sial age. At first glance, this peri­od of a man’s life seems ide­al, because much has already been achieved, and all the impor­tant pri­or­i­ties in life have been put in place.

In addi­tion, most of the desires have already been real­ized, and the finan­cial sit­u­a­tion gives con­fi­dence in the future.

At this turn, cri­sis moments in the fam­i­ly are already in the past, giv­ing way to an under­stand­ing of how impor­tant har­mo­ny and tran­quil­i­ty in the house are. Career also occu­pies a sta­ble and firm posi­tion. If you have your own busi­ness, it is usu­al­ly already devel­oped and suc­cess­ful.

If the hero of the day serves in a pub­lic posi­tion, then he prob­a­bly already occu­pies one of the high­est steps on the career lad­der.

But there is anoth­er point of view: by the 55th anniver­sary, phys­i­cal activ­i­ty decreas­es and it is already nec­es­sary to give the body more time to rest. Sports loads are also not very invig­o­rat­ing and cause less enthu­si­asm com­pared to the sen­sa­tions of five years ago. After all, I want­ed to cel­e­brate 50 years on a grand scale and con­tin­ue to rush for­ward at the same speed.

Men who have approached the age of 55 are tempt­ed to under­stand them­selves and find out what is now para­mount. At the same time, the atti­tude of rel­a­tives to the age of the hero of the day also becomes spe­cial. Each rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the stronger sex at this age wants to receive ll-deserved respect not only among col­leagues and friends, but also in his own fam­i­ly. The under­stand­ing that at home he remains in the fore­ground is very invig­o­rat­ing and stim­u­lat­ing for a man.

That is why a gift from rel­a­tives on the anniver­sary date of 55 years must cer­tain­ly express respect, sin­cere atten­tion, grat­i­tude and love. Close peo­ple should try to remem­ber what was impor­tant and nec­es­sary for their hero of the day late­ly. Maybe he want­ed to accom­plish some­thing, but work and house­hold oblig­a­tions inter­fered?

For exam­ple, he has long want­ed to vis­it a spa or learn to ski again. Even just a ekend spent with loved ones in nature has long been an unre­al­iz­able dream, because every­one is always busy with busi­ness. And a man is unlike­ly to be able to refuse an already paid tick­et or an orga­nized fam­i­ly trip. He will have to adjust his work sched­ule to this gift.

And if he is not a fan of active pas­time or long trips, orga­nize a trip to the coun­try or a coun­try pic­nic. This is a more relaxed type of vaca­tion in the cir­cle of the clos­est peo­ple.

For a man who appre­ci­ates good food and music, it’s a good idea to orga­nize an anniver­sary cel­e­bra­tion in a restau­rant. Of course, if the state of finances of the orga­niz­ers of the cel­e­bra­tion allows. Favorite music, show pro­gram, dances, songs — all this will bring the hero of the day in good shape and remind you that life is still full of col­ors and smiles.

Prac­ti­cal gifts from rel­a­tives can be pur­chased joint­ly. It is prof­itable and con­ve­nient. Thus, even buy­ing a plas­ma TV, new lap­top, smart­phone or cof­fee machine there will be no invoice for any­one.

If the hero of the day occu­pies the post of chief, and you serve under him, it is more log­i­cal to pre­pare for his 55th birth­day a nice gift from the whole team. Chip­ping in with col­leagues is con­ve­nient and not too expen­sive.

At the same time, it is pos­si­ble to count on an impres­sive amount, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly expands the bound­aries of choos­ing a gift. It is usu­al­ly accept­ed to give things that do not go beyond the bound­aries of office eti­quette and the dis­tance beten the boss and sub­or­di­nates.

One of the impor­tant com­po­nents of such a solemn event as the cel­e­bra­tion of 55 years are flors. Yes, buy­ing a bou­quet in this case is appro­pri­ate and indi­cat­ed.

It is advis­able to insert a post­card with wish­es from the team into a chic bou­quet or bas­ket of flors. As a present, a cer­tifi­cate for the pur­chase of var­i­ous things is suit­able. This idea will allow the man­ag­er to make an inde­pen­dent deci­sion on what to pur­chase and will not put him in an awk­ward posi­tion.

Alter­na­tive­ly, you can give a 55-year-old male man­ag­er a brand­ed office. For exam­ple, a pen with a gold nib or adorned with oth­er pre­cious met­al. Or present one of the exclu­sive acces­sories use­ful for busi­ness­men. An object of paint­ing or sculp­ture will cause no less pleas­ant emo­tions, but only for an art con­nois­seur or col­lec­tor.

Busi­ness part­ners also con­grat­u­late the hero of the day on this day. Most often they are not in close friend­ly rela­tions, but friend­ly com­mu­ni­ca­tion beten them exists. In this case, the hob­bies of a 55-year-old man are tak­en into account.

If the hero of the occa­sion is fond of hunt­ing, an excel­lent present would be good gun. For a book lover, you can pre­pare a rare copy of the print­ed edi­tion or a high-qual­i­ty e‑book. Items for office or home office decor can also serve as gifts. For exam­ple, an orig­i­nal­ly designed map of the world (of a par­tic­u­lar coun­try), a sta­tus table (wall) clock, a brand­ed set of sta­tionery. In gen­er­al, a pres­ti­gious, expen­sive and indi­vid­ual present is pre­sent­ed.

A gift from friends for 55 years is often bought col­lec­tive­ly. Then you can afford to give some­thing real­ly pre­sentable and worth­while. Espe­cial­ly if a friend­ly com­pa­ny has exist­ed for a long time and it is numer­ous.

A gift can con­sist of two parts: intan­gi­ble and prac­ti­cal. In the first case, a con­grat­u­la­tion is meant, framed in a beau­ti­ful frame.. It is bet­ter if these are mem­o­rable poems or a col­lage of pho­tos from dif­fer­ent years, of course, with the image of friends on them. Each friend, if desired, writes his per­son­al wish to the hero of the day on the reverse side.

An excel­lent solu­tion is to give a friend a video about his life with joint pho­tos and favorite music of the hero of the occa­sion for his 55th birth­day. The video will be more inter­est­ing if it is accom­pa­nied by orig­i­nal com­ments to the frames. Sure­ly in the fam­i­ly archive of the birth­day man there are fun­ny pic­tures that can be appro­pri­ate­ly used in cre­ative con­grat­u­la­tions.

Of course, with the per­mis­sion and sup­port of the wife or adult chil­dren of the hero of the day.

Prac­ti­cal gifts are a selec­tion of the 55-year-old man’s favorite items. For exam­ple, a broom for going to the steam room, a rare book, elite alco­hol, cig­ars. Or some­thing from hob­bies — ten­nis rack­et, gui­tar, pic­nic set in the coun­try, car acces­sories.

Useful things

An anniver­sary gift does not have to be high-pro­file and expen­sive. The main thing is to give it from a pure heart. Even a trin­ket can some­times cheer you up if it empha­sizes the respect of the donor and the mas­cu­line qual­i­ties of the hero of the day. Usu­al­ly, small use­ful giz­mos of bud­getary val­ue are pre­sent­ed to the god­fa­ther, uncle, old­er broth­er.

You can choose one of these options:

  • penknife of unusu­al design;
  • styl­ish wine corkscrew;
  • orig­i­nal lighter;
  • mug with the name of the hero of the day;
  • sol­id diary;
  • unusu­al ash­tray;
  • lamp.

It will be very sym­bol­ic to hand over to a believ­ing per­son (god­fa­ther) icon. Such a gift will also be to the lik­ing of the grand­fa­ther. In church shops, you can choose the image of a saint and not just give a present, but cre­ate por­ful pro­tec­tion for a dear per­son from evil and mis­for­tune.

A prac­ti­cal gift for a rel­a­tive — tea set with a jar of hon­ey instead of sets. It is much eas­i­er for a loved one to choose some­thing nec­es­sary and use­ful. Rel­a­tives are usu­al­ly ll aware of each oth­er’s pas­sions and desires.

It is impor­tant to under­stand that no one will be pleased to receive a gift that empha­sizes age, but a father or father-in-law will grate­ful­ly take care of them.. In this case, it is allod to give blood pres­sure mon­i­tor, glu­come­ter, foot or back mas­sager, a tick­et to a sana­to­ri­um or for cer­tain pro­ce­dures. A gift in hon­or of 55 years to a father from chil­dren should con­vey their con­cern for his health and the promise to pro­long his years in a cheer­ful spir­it and strength.

A prac­ti­cal and hard-work­ing man, capa­ble of tin­ker­ing, will like good set of tools, elec­tric drill, screw­driv­er - in gen­er­al, some­thing that will facil­i­tate repair work around the house. A bra­zier or bar­be­cue set is also con­sid­ered a good option as a present for a home­ly man.

It is not nec­es­sary only on the anniver­sary to present things that the whole fam­i­ly will use. For this, there are dding anniver­sary, New Year and oth­er non-per­son­al dates. It is nec­es­sary to do some­thing pleas­ant on a birth­day to the one who had it.

Then even a sym­bol­ic gift will delight to the core.

Unusual surprises

A per­son cel­e­brat­ing his 55th birth­day can be giv­en a medal or a cer­tifi­cate in hon­or of this event. They are sold in a large assort­ment in many sou­venir shops. It will be great to make an orig­i­nal inscrip­tion in the form of an engrav­ing as a keep­sake. You can choose com­ic wish­es for a friend or broth­er and present a mini­bar, a stash book from your wife, a T‑shirt or bar­be­cue apron with a three-dimen­sion­al image of a beefy tor­so.

It is also not for­bid­den for a wife to approach the choice of a gift with humor. Espe­cial­ly if the spouse in life loves to laugh and joke. In addi­tion to the main gift, the spouse can play a trick on the faith­ful by giv­ing him a new dress or shoes, which she her­self chose. This is done with the impli­ca­tion that the best gift for a hus­band is a beau­ti­ful wife near­by. After pre­sent­ing such a pre­sen­ta­tion, the hero of the day is pre­sent­ed with a real gift.

It can be a prac­ti­cal item that the hus­band was going to buy and was sav­ing to buy a lit­tle mon­ey. Or some­thing mem­o­rable, rem­i­nis­cent of mar­i­tal feel­ings that have not dis­ap­peared over many years of mar­riage. A man wants to feel loved at any age and sta­tus. No need to feel sor­ry for emo­tions, because not only mon­ey and expen­sive gifts express grat­i­tude and love for a loved one.

DIY gifts

Among the pop­u­lar options are a cozy sater knit­ted by a lov­ing wife, a favorite pie from a daugh­ter or a shelf from a son, mas­ter­ful­ly knocked togeth­er for a father. With their own hands, all fam­i­ly mem­bers often make some­thing in mem­o­ry of the hero of the day. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the younger gen­er­a­tion tra­di­tion­al­ly draw, build cre­ative crafts, learn rhymes.

Men in adult­hood are sen­ti­men­tal, so the hero of the day is def­i­nite­ly touched by such a good atti­tude towards him. You can per­son­al­ly issue a medal or diplo­ma in hon­or of the 55th anniver­sary for the “Best Father”, “Most Car­ing Hus­band”, etc. Do not for­get to pur­chase a frame for the diplo­ma to hang it in a place of hon­or.

To cre­ate a diplo­ma, you do not need a lot of mate­ri­als or time. Down­load a ready-made tem­plate on the Inter­net. This can be done com­plete­ly free of charge and in dif­fer­ent ways. Or you can sim­ply man­u­al­ly, enlist­ing your imag­i­na­tion and your own taste, cre­ate some­thing unique. It will be incred­i­bly touch­ing and pleas­ant for any per­son.

Even small grand­chil­dren can cope with the man­u­fac­ture of the medal. You only need gold-col­ored card­board, col­ored paper, satin rib­bon, glue and scis­sors. Some half an hour — and a medal for 55 years of life for a grand­fa­ther or uncle is ready.

It is bet­ter to present it to the music, giv­ing the event more solem­ni­ty.

Commemorative gifts

This cat­e­go­ry is asso­ci­at­ed with pur­chas­es, which should sym­bol­ize for the man of the anniver­sary the atti­tude of the fam­i­ly towards his per­son. Ded­i­ca­to­ry inscrip­tions for mem­o­ry, engrav­ings on met­al, wood, etc. are lcome. A sim­pler, but sim­i­lar move is embroi­dery on a bathrobe, a per­son­al­ized T‑shirt, a por­trait lamp with the image of the whole fam­i­ly assem­bled.

In fact, there are many vari­a­tions. The main thing is to rely on your own funds and under­stand what will be more pleas­ant and most appro­pri­ate in each case. Some­one would pre­fer to give their dear rel­a­tive a piece of jel­ry with a ded­i­ca­to­ry inscrip­tion for his birth­day, while some­one would rather read the author’s ded­i­ca­tion to the hero of the day or sing a song in his hon­or at the cel­e­bra­tion.

All this is pleas­ant in any man­i­fes­ta­tion, and for all par­ties: donors and the hero of the occa­sion. As a keep­sake for the birth­day boy from all the clos­est and dear­est peo­ple, you can cre­ate a video mes­sage in which every­one express­es their atti­tude towards him and con­grat­u­lates him.

If a man is a fan of board games, backgam­mon or check­ers in a gift ver­sion will amuse him from the bot­tom of his heart and bright­en up his leisure time. In addi­tion, there is so much space on the inside of the wood­en field for com­mem­o­ra­tive sig­na­tures from lov­ing peo­ple.

Pleas­ant gifts for a hus­band from his wife will be:

  • cozy blan­ket or bathrobe;
  • a con­tain­er with a heat­ing func­tion for stor­ing lunch;
  • heart shaped cake;
  • brief­case for doc­u­ments and impor­tant papers;
  • fish­ing gear;
  • some of the tech­ni­cal inno­va­tions.

You can give your spouse head­phones for watch­ing evening TV, some­thing for com­fort in the car inte­ri­or, or an item that match­es his indi­vid­ual hob­bies. Even such small plea­sures will become a pleas­ant gift for a man on his 55th anniver­sary.
