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 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.
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.

- a set set of jam, honey or chocolate with nice wishes on the package, a bouquet of products that the birthday person loves;
