birth­day gifts

What to give a man for 85 years?

A sol­id date, like a man’s 85th birth­day, whether it’s dad, grand­fa­ther or acquain­tance, is always accom­pa­nied by painful thoughts about the gift. In this arti­cle, will look at the most prac­ti­cal and cre­ative gifts.

How to choose?

Hav­ing reached such a ven­er­a­ble age, the strong half of human­i­ty becomes no less sen­ti­men­tal than its female part. There­fore, men will glad­ly accept gifts made with love and care. One of the best gifts will be the atten­tion of rel­a­tives and friends and the time when they all gath­er at the fes­tive table. Hav­ing decid­ed to pur­chase a mate­r­i­al gift, it is still worth lis­ten­ing to a few tips.

  • It is worth choos­ing only use­ful and prac­ti­cal gifts that the hero of the day can def­i­nite­ly use. If this is a house­hold appli­ance, then it should be easy to use and come with clear instruc­tions.
  • It is nec­es­sary to rely on the hob­bies and wish­es of the birth­day man, while tak­ing into account the capa­bil­i­ties of the man. It is inap­pro­pri­ate to give gar­den­ing items to an avid angler. Or give things for fish­ing, when the health of the hero of the day no longer allows him to do what he loves.
  • It is no secret that many peo­ple begin to have health prob­lems by this age, so items to strength­en the body will be a good gift.
  • Choose gifts based on the man’s lifestyle. Some at this age are still very active and open to new knowl­edge and adven­ture.
  • Refuse to pur­chase items to main­tain bad habits, whether it is drink­ing alco­hol, even in mod­er­a­tion, or smok­ing. Even if the birth­day per­son has such a bad habit, you should not pro­mote it. That is why you should not buy elite alco­hol, cig­ars, an ash­tray or glass­es.

It is also worth aban­don­ing the grandiose fes­tive pro­gram with musi­cians, fire­works, prac­ti­cal jokes and many guests on this day. From such a bright and noisy feast, the ll-being of the hero of the day may wors­en.

Practical gifts

For a birth­day, it is bet­ter for dad or grand­fa­ther to give prac­ti­cal and use­ful things that will def­i­nite­ly be used by them. The options below fall into this cat­e­go­ry.

  • House­hold appli­ances and mod­ern com­mu­ni­ca­tion devices. Such a gift will be espe­cial­ly appre­ci­at­ed by active men who love to learn every­thing new. A mod­ern TV, tablet, mobile phone, as ll as a uni­ver­sal remote con­trol can serve as a gift. It can both switch TV chan­nels and turn on the air con­di­tion­er. An elec­tric fire­place also deserves atten­tion as a gift for an elder­ly per­son, as it gives the room a cozy and home­ly feel. The main thing is to teach the hero of the day how to use it cor­rect­ly.

  • Mod­ern and prac­ti­cal gifts include a pedome­terespe­cial­ly if a man takes care of his health, or play­erwhere he can lis­ten to his favorite songs or audio­books. No less wor­thy gift will be dig­i­tal pho­to frame with pic­tures of the whole fam­i­ly.
  • Nec­es­sary and com­fort­able fur­ni­turefor exam­ple, a rock­ing chair or a table that can be placed near a bed or sofa.

  • Items for per­son­al use, such as an elec­tric shaver. In this case, it is bet­ter to choose a sim­ple mod­el that works from the net­work. An ortho­pe­dic mat­tress and a pil­low are suit­able, which also main­tain health and strength­en a person’s sleep.

  • Bath set, warm paja­mas, soft slip­pers, light but warm blan­ket (or blan­ket) will be indis­pens­able and prac­ti­cal gifts for the anniver­sary.

  • Gifts relat­ed to main­tain­ing health and main­tain­ing the body. These include an air ion­iz­er, which is indis­pens­able in city apart­ments, a salt lamp, a mas­sager for the whole body or indi­vid­ual parts (arms, legs, head). You can also present as a present a tick­et to a sana­to­ri­um, an exam­i­na­tion at a med­ical cen­ter, or sim­ply hand over the nec­es­sary med­i­cines.

The lat­ter option is best used not as a sep­a­rate gift, but as an addi­tion.

  • Gifts relat­ed to the hob­by of the hero of the day. It can be mod­ern fish­ing gear, a com­fort­able fold­ing chair with a back, gog­gles that pro­tect against glare on the water. For a per­son who likes to spend time in the coun­try, com­pact gar­den fur­ni­ture, a samovar or street lamps that are charged from the sun will be an excel­lent option. For the fan of col­lect­ing col­lec­tions, it is worth buy­ing a new copy. Those inter­est­ed in games will suit check­ers, chess, domi­noes; a set of con­struc­tion tools — for the mas­ter.
