60th Birthday Gifts: Ideas and Presents

What do you get for someone who is 60 years old? Are they thinking about retirement with travel or new hobbies? Are they into fine dining and luxuries? Indulging in new interests and pursuits? Do they like to reminisce?

Comfort and health also become a priority as you get older. Try good quality pillows and cushions, comfortable recliners in the garden. Here are some of Australia's best online retailers with gifts suitable for 60 year olds.

Birthday Experiences

Experience vouchers are popular for birthdays, often the V8 drives, but there is a wide range to suit all sorts of tastes – everything from cooking classes, getaways, horseriding, sailing, skydiving, bungy jumping and so on. If you choose an experience in Australia, be careful to choose one in the location of the recipient. Most experiences are in the capital cities.

Experience companies also offer general vouchers so you don't have to decide what they'd like, and hampers as “experiences” these days for those people who receive an experience voucher but don't want to do any of the activities in their local area.

  • Adrenaline – adventure and experience vouchers for Skydiving, V8 Race Cars, Rally Driving, Hot Air Ballooning, Jet Packs and more. They also have the option of some impressive gift hampers. Delivery Australia-wide.
  • Classbento – fun, creative, and recreational courses for individuals and groups in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.
