Consider giving the outdoorsman in your life fishing materials, something that can make his camping trips more enjoyable, a breathtaking helicopter ride, sporting merchandise, or tools for gardening.
Turning 50 is a momentous occasion that you can commemorate in various ways. There are many 50th birthday gifts you can give, from simple but meaningful keepsakes like recorded messages on CD to treating the celebrant to a grand birthday party. Finding the perfect birthday gift for your outdoor enthusiast can also be an enjoyable task. Consider these gift ideas:
Fishermen can never have enough fishing gadgets and supplies. A brand new fishing rod may be an ideal gift for the old-school fisherman who loves quiet fishing trips. You can instead give him accessories for fishing or various types of lures, if he already has numerous fishing rods. There are more sophisticated fishing devices like a digital fish finder which fishermen can use on their boats.
Something to make his outdoor stay more pleasant
If the birthday celebrant likes outdoor camping, present him something that will make his camping trip a more pleasant one. You can give him an air mattress which can be easily tucked into a backpack and will let him sleep comfortably during camping trips or a set of portable chairs which he can lounge on at the campsite. Alternatively, you can buy him a camp stove he can use to prepare hearty meals even when he is away from home. You can help him enjoy viewing different wildlife during his outdoor trips if you get him a pair of binoculars.
Charter a trip onboard a helicopter
Those who love outdoor adventures will adore the idea of a helicopter ride. Some sightseeing companies offer helicopter tours over cities and different landmarks. Include the celebrant's family and close friends when making reservations so they can all have fun. The flight times of scenic helicopter rides vary depending on where the tours will be, but they usually last from 10 to 40 minutes with every minute sure to be fun and memorable.
Many men who enjoy the great outdoors also like engaging in sports and physical activities. You can give him equipment for the particular sport that he enjoys doing. If the birthday celebrant is a golf player, you can present him with accessories needed to play golf. The right gift for the hoop aficionado might be a new pair of basketball shoes. If you don't know what sport the birthday celebrant enjoys doing, you can give him a gift certificate for a sports shop as a birthday gift instead.
Tools for gardening
Older outdoors enthusiasts may like to partake in more mild activities such as gardening. You can encourage his hobby with a gift of useful gardening tools and accessories. Consider a gardening hat or tools like spades, shovels and hoes. If the birthday celebrant already has all the necessary equipments for gardening, you can think of giving him a garden fountain to beautify his garden. You might also want to add some new plants he can tend to especially if it is planting season.
Just remember to put extra thought and effort into whatever birthday gift you are giving.
