50th Birthday Presents

Someone close to your heart is hitting the big 5-0 real soon and you are now looking for some 50th birthday present ideas for them. This can be tricky so we will help you put some thought into it.

For sure, the first thing that comes to mind would be to go the traditional way, right?

What is the traditional gift for a 50th birthday?

When it comes to milestone celebrations like a 50th birthday, most people would love to bring in a bit of tradition. A 50th, whether a birthday or any another occasion, is associated with gold. So perhaps you would think of giving them a gold jewelry, or a gold wine glass or anything in gold. But if we are not literally talking about that kind of “gold,” there are absolutely other ways where you can add the Midas touch.

What do you get someone who is turning 50?

With one foot just out of the forties, and the other foot not quite over the hill, 50-year-olds are definitely not alike - that’s what makes this golden age so interesting. Some still strive to be forever young, while others have settled into their skin, and still others are wondering who they are seeing in the mirror. Some are still so excited about a great journey ahead, some are already content with where they are currently, and others are cruising toward retirement. Some are celebrating, some are commiserating, and some are denying it all together.

Does any of these sound like the person you are celebrating?

If it is a yes, it is indeed a tough job to look for 50th birthday gift ideas for them, but with We Wander that’s not the case!

How can We Wander help you give special 50th birthday presents?

Give them a gift of a new experience to celebrate their birthday. Experience gifts are definitely more memorable than objects that can be easily forgotten, explains psychiatrist Neel Burton, M.D., in his "Psychology Today" article "How to Find the Perfect Gift."

With We Wander, you’re giving both a tangible present, as well as an experience gift.

It’s a beautifully packaged gift box, but it gives them an out of the box experience.

All boxes include four distinct categories of experiences: Wellness, Escape, Adventure and Lifestyle. There is no doubt that they will enjoy any of these no matter what type of 50-year-old they are, and they can even share it with their loved ones too. We Wander is truly a gift that can suit anyone. Plus, they can redeem the experience even until they're 53!
