50 – now that's a handsome age. What's it like being taken seriously by the world at last, we wonder? And you know what goes perfectly with their new-found DNGAF? 50th birthday presents that sing sophisticated quality – which happens to be what our collection is all about.
Topping our list of 50th birthday gift ideas is personalised leather goods, designer glassware and stunning accessories. Whether you want something simple and thoughtful to reflect that newfound fifties attitude (like, um, this 'no f*cks given' candle) or to really push the boat out with a luxury gift (might we suggest this handmade Italian leather desk pad...), we've got 50th birthday gift ideas for men and women that will keep you in their good books – at least, until sixty!
When it comes to 50th birthday ideas, there are two ways to think about gifting: a throwback gift that reminds them of where they’ve been or a pressie that’s ready to go with them on their next adventure. Our curated collection of B’day pressies has options for both!
If it’s a personalised memento you’re after, customise a mug with their name and fascinating facts from the year they were born (let’s hear it for the peeps born in the time of Robert Menzies and Matchbox Cars!) or choose a special tee that’s printed with a ‘mixtape’ of all the hit songs from their early years. Want to create your own unique keepsake? Have a piece of typographic wall art or a cushion cover created with a few of their favourite memories from the last half century, or personalise a vintage-style map print with a place that’s important to them.
Looking forward with your 50th gift? Toast their future 50 with an Australian gin tasting kit, customised whisky glass or elegant wine decanter. If your freshly-50 is ready to book their next trip, splash out on luxury travel accessories that’ll make their holiday feel less backpacker hostel, more five-star hotel (even if they’re flying economy!). Personalised cufflinks, a soft cashmere stole, smart leather desk accessories and a cologne favoured by JFK in his day… These classic gifts will appeal to any 50 year old with discerning taste.
