What should 60th birthday presents say? Get amongst it and don't take life too seriously at all anymore, if we're to be trusted. We've built a whole collection of 60th birthday gifts around items that celebrate this milestone of milestones, and hey – Jagger is still touring in his '80s, so find a gift that encourages the birthday girl or guy to kick up their heels and enjoy all the pleasures they can get their paws on.
Give a nod to this big-deal birthday with something thoughtful that's fitting for this next decade! Maybe they're ready to kick off the big SIX-OH with a trip abroad? Help them travel in style with personalised leather luggage or accessories. Stay-at-home sixities will appreciate 60th birthday gifts with a cosy homebody vine – think record players to spin their fave retro vinyls or bespoke champagne glasses to cheers their milestone B'day!
Welcoming your folks into the 60 club? We've got your old man covered with 60th birthday presents for Dad. Treat him to a personalised leather cufflinks box (perhaps with a pair of sixpence cufflinks inside, just sayin') or give him a mug to mark the special occasion – he'll think of you every time he's siping his tea or coffee... or cheeky nip of whisky! (We won't tell if you don't...). While you’re browsing, check out our gift department for even more amazing gifts for dad.
And because we know mum's can be tricky to buy for when the stakes aren't 60 years high, we've curated a special collection of birthday gifts for her 60th. Make her birthday with a hamper of handmade delights or give her something that she'll keep in her heart (and maybe even on her couch) for years to come, like a bespoke word art cushion. The 60th birthday presents for Mum in these pages will elevate you to favourite child status in no time, but if you’re still stuck for ideas, head over to our Gifts for Mum department for even more inspiration.
No matter who you’re buying a 60th birthday present for, you’re going to want to make this one special. We’ve collated a few team tips on how to choose the perfect pressie. Read on, gift-buyer.
Regardless of your usual gift-buying go-to's, 60 is a big deal and your gift needs to make some noise. By this, we don’t mean that you need to spend a fortune on a huge hard-hitting gesture. Rather, you need to pack an emotional punch, ideally by making this gift a personal memento rather than another thing that’s forgotten forever by the time 61 rolls around.
There’s no better way to achieve that than with personal gifts that speak to the heart. From a personalised pendant that you can fill with a photographic memory, to namesake wine glasses, pocket watches and everything in between, our collection of unique, personalised 60th birthday gifts can certainly add a special edge to gift-giving on the big day!
A present that is both thoughtful AND useful is the way to go (not an easy find for the 60-year-old who has everything). A few ideas from our collection include:
At 60, life is all about living, so experiential birthday treats are always a bonus. Of course, you’re still going to want to give them a lasting present to remember the day by, so why not pair a quality weekend away with a personalised toiletry bag that’s already packed and waiting at the hotel? Or, take them out for that day trip they’ve always lusted after and keep your camera handy so that you can fill a personalised photo album with all the memories of the day - it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
Who said gifts had to get boring with age? Embrace the giftee’s humorous side with a novelty gift from our Quirky Gifts department. Even if you’re opting for a serious gift, simply adding a funny, personalised message will spark happiness and joy.
At sixty, most people have collected everything they could want, and they’ve had a whole load of gifts to boot. Heck, you might’ve even given them a load of those gifts yourself! With that being the case, it can be pretty hard to know where to go from here, which is why our Gift Finder could be a lifesaver.

Whether she’s a style icon or budding artiste, our global gift finding prowess will certainly make sure that your gift is her number one when the big moment comes!

Simply tell us what you need, or make use of this collection and order away!
Eighteenth and twenty-first birthdays might be the most obvious ‘milestones’ in a life, but they’re by no means the best, and they certainly aren’t the last. In fact, forget legal ages and sweet sixteens, if all those milestones were to go up against each other, sixty would be right up there at the top because this is a TRUE coming of age birthday, when age, experience, and knowledge all come together at the peak of what we now lovingly refer to as ‘the golden years’.
Unfortunately, while a first drink and a big ‘18’ badge might’ve been plenty for those lesser, younger birthday hotspots, it’s a whole lot harder to know what to get someone for the big 6-0. Luckily, finding the ideal 60th birthday present doesn’t need to give you the migraine of the decade (or six, considering the event). You simply need to take your time and, primarily, consider the 60th birthday gifts that are ready and waiting in our fantastic collection here at Hardtofind.
