50th Birthday Gift Ideas
There are few birthdays as significant as the 50th, so when it's time to celebrate, you'll want to make sure you do it right, with a present they're certain to love.
If you're looking to buy a gift for the gear head in your life, we have a range of exclusive driving days to choose from. Give the birthday man or woman the chance to sit in the driving seat of a Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, or other luxury supercar, and test the car's speed and agility on a professional-quality track. If they're more interested in off-roading, however, they can hop into a 4x4 Land Rover for a one-on-one driving adventure with an experienced instructor. You'll learn how to handle rough terrain, as well as have the opportunity to explore the impressive handling capabilities of a true wilderness vehicle.
For a more down tempo day out, Buyagift has an array of fun and stress-free activities that you'll love to give, and they'll love to try! Whether your favourite birthday celebrant is a lifelong Londoner, or has always dreamed of visiting the city, there's nothing quite like seeing the storied view from the top of the city's newest skyscraper and the tallest building in Western Europe, The Shard. With our View from the Shard voucher, the lucky recipient will be able to go up this magnificent feat of engineering and architecture with a guest, and take in 360-degree views of one of the world's great cities-on a clear day, they may be able to see as far as 40 miles! Or, if they're an aspiring oenophile, you can always give them a Vinopolis wine tasting day, for them and the guest of their choice to enjoy a tasting lesson before being offered a selection of wines, including Champagne, to taste at their leisure. They'll love putting their newfound skills to good use, and you'll love knowing that you gave them the gift of good taste!
If they're seriously into food and wine, you can't find a much better 50th birthday gift idea than one of our carefully-selected dining experiences. No matter where they're celebrating their birthday, they're sure to love a voucher for a 3-course dinner with a Champagne cocktail-it's offered at 16 Hilton Hotels across the nation. Or, for classic British style with more than a hint of luxury, give them anafternoon tea for two, hosted at the elegant Great Hall of Thoresby Hall in Nottinghamshire. This historic estate is a grade I listed home from the mid-1700s, and your special birthday guest of honour will feel spoiled rotten from the moment they walk in the door-the Great Hall is three stories tall and includes a minstrels' gallery and enough antique armour and weaponry to entertain even the most enthusiastic history buff. The food, though, is where this experience day shines, with scones, jam, Devonshire clotted cream, cakes, pastries, sandwiches, and more, all homemade fresh on the premises. Make sure to leave some time to explore the grounds before or afterwards, and this day out in the countryside will be truly memorable!
For a thoughtful 50th birthday present idea that will make them smile and say "Ahhhhh" we offer exclusive access to a range of high-end spa activities. By partnering with some of the most respected names in health and wellness, like Bannatyne and Champneys, as well as offering treatments at located all over Britain, you favourite birthday celebrant will be able to indulge in a day of one-of-a-kind pampering, completely at this or her convenience. Our incredible 2-for-1 Champneys Relax Spa Day offer is a top choice among those looking to properly ring in this special year-it includes 9 hours of unfettered access to health club facilities for two people, as well as a luxurious 3-course buffet. There's no better way to spend quality time with a partner, best friend, or family member than to spend a day in this haven of relaxation.
If it's family time that would do your special person good, there is one gift that is truly unmatched - a photoshoot for everyone, so he or she can make some memories whilst goofing off for the camera. Even more special is the knowledge that the resulting portrait will sit in his or her home for years, keeping everyone close. This makes such a great gift because not only does it come with an 8"x10" portrait included, but your family can also select any additional prints (at a small additional cost), so that you could even present the birthday man or woman with a custom photo album. You'll be making memories, and holding on to them, as a family.
