Shopping Tip
Online gift buying is an easy way to please just about anyone.  Save time while you let your fingers do the shopping for 50th birthday presents from the comfort of home.  Allow ample time to order and receive your gifts.

Night on the town.
Treat your Guest of Honor to a special dining experience.  Pick a favorite restaurant or a new one he or she is anxious to try.  Consider splurging with tickets to a concert, premier movie, sporting event, etc.

Birthday getaway.
What could be a more exciting 50th birthday gift idea than travel?  Whether for a weekend or an extended stay, a birthday getaway provides a wonderful opportunity for relaxation and fun.  

Perhaps making travel a gift theme for all the guests would be a good idea and design your 50th birthday party theme around the destination point.  For example, if your gift is a trip to Mexico, plan a Mexican fiesta dinner with margaritas.  If you have booked a trip to Hawaii, throw a luau complete with grass skirts and leis.

If the budget allows, make your Honoree feel like a celebrity with a stretch limousine.  Whether you take a drive out of town or just ride around familiar surroundings, arranging for limo service is the perfect addition to this special celebration.
