Birthday Present Ideas for the Trickiest of Customers

June 3, 2016

I could not tell you what we got him for his 50th birthday, or his 40th for that matter. There was possibly a spirit level thrown in there somewhere. Maybe a brand new drill. Some high-quality gardening gloves perhaps. All quickly forgettable, as well as the reason we wanted to have this one suitable. So there we were. My brother went in initial, carrying the guitar by its neck. I followed with the amp. It was our Dad's 60th and we have been determined that this time round we'd purchase him a birthday present to bear in mind. I believe we did alright - he definitely seemed quite chuffed. And I'm pretty sure that in the years to come, we'll all have the ability to recall what we bought him when he hit six-and-o.To know more about birthday present ideas

Thoughts you, our efforts - surely on a financial level - pale into insignificance when compared to today's celebs. Take Katy Perry, as an example, who spent $200,000 on a birthday present for her beau. In exchange for this serious wedge, our Russ is booked onboard a Virgin Galactic flight into space. We've no idea when Mr Brand will probably be heading into the mesosphere, but as birthday present ideas go, it really is absolutely memorable. Or how about husband and wife, Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles? With earnings to make Perry and Brand appear like Twist and Fagin, the R&B star forked out $2.6-million on a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for her rap-star hubby's 41st. Yikes! It wasn't even his 40th!

Okay, so it'd be a little 'naive' of us to assume you've got a spare few million down the back of the sofa. But that doesn't mean to say you can't buy friends and family some fantastic personalised birthday presents - I absolutely keep in mind getting a couple of things for my 18th that had been engraved on my behalf. So if you've found yourself wracking your brains for birthday present ideas, take a look through these suggestions. It might just give you that little spark you need...

For 18th and 21st birthday suggestions, how about personalising a bottle of Champagne or vodka? You've got lots of label designs to pick from, all of which can be customised with their name and a message. It might be a gift that disappears rather sharpish, but keeping the bottle still makes for a great memento. Footie fans, meanwhile, provide no end of possibilities, with everything from personalised football books to spoof footie magazine covers. And as for the girls, you'll find personalised charm bracelets, handbag mirrors, pampering days and everything in between.

Fast forward two or three decades, and both 40th and 50th birthday ideas are in no short supply either. If some gentle ribbing seems appropriate, you can't go wrong with a spoof newspaper cover, whether you have them sweeping into Downing Street, being knighted or simply throwing the mother of all parties. And because they're all produced in association with all the Mirror, they really do look like the real McCoy. Failing that, other big hitters also tend to revolve around newspapers - only this time, real ones. There's the option of buying an original newspaper from the day they were born, or buying 1 of the brilliant newspaper books that feature reprints from your chosen date, or dates. Trinkets, gift days and any number of other fun tips complete the line-up.Click here birthday gift ideas for her
