70th Birthday Presents

Family time is the best 70th birthday gift

70th birthday gifts for men

For 70th birthday presents, stay away from giving "things" that will take up space. He can't take it with him, you know.

To complicate things, we also have more potential for health problems, too. His doctor might be telling him to avoid certain foods. Typically these are foods that are high in sugar. He might need to avoid popcorn, too. If you're planning to give him a gift of food, make sure you do your detective work first.

Men who manage to live this long will most enjoy spending time with friends and family - much more than getting some item that will just take up space in the house. So stay away from knick knacks, novelties, and things that won't be used in the next year.

On my seventieth birthday I felt as if I were standing on a mountain height, at whose foot the ocean of eternity was audibly rushing; while before me, life with its deserts and flower-gardens, its sunny days and its stormy days, spread out green, wild, and beautiful.
Heinrich Zschokke

Another thing to avoid is those "over the hill" balloons, shirts, and so forth. 70 year old men are seeing more of their friends pass away every day. While you might think a gift like this is funny, he won't. It's just a reminder that he is old, so don't go there.

Like for the 60th birthday, I suggest gifts that are consumable or are experiences.

Consumable items such as wine, fruit baskets and other food items can be a good choice (see warning above). Restaurant gift cards are good, too. Other good choices are movie tickets, popcorn tins, or a nice bottle of his favorite alcohol.

Even better - take him out to dinner yourself. Remember, he most enjoys spending time with friends and family (that's you). Enjoy his company while you still can.

Best wishes to him, and tell him I said "Happy Birthday"!
