Birthdays tend to lose their celebratory appeal as you grow older. However, the 50th birthday is often a significant one for many men -- it is a reminder they have reached the mid-point of their lives. Some men embrace their 50th birthday, while others look for ways to stay young. You can give a birthday gift that reflects the attitude of the man in your life who is turning 50.
- One option for a 50th birthday present for a man is a sentimental gift. Provide the guy in your life with a reprint of the New York Times from the day he was born. This gift reminds him of where he came from and all he has accomplished since that day. Alternatively, give him a picture frame with a meaningful photo inside.
- If you want to give a humorous gift, give him a few gag gifts. A 50th birthday poem that pokes fun at being "over the hill" is a good option. You can also add other small gag items to the gift, such as a back brace or something else that signifies growing older. For example, hair dye or hair regrowth systems can add a humorous touch to the gift.
- Men at the age of 50 may already have hobbies they enjoy, like golf or bowling. Give him a gift that encourages his hobby. For example, give him a box of very expensive golf balls that he may not purchase for himself. Alternatively, give him something unique, such as a golf lesson with a PGA pro. If he enjoys bowling, buy him a new bowling accessory, such as a glove or bowling shirt.
