Wrap Up

  • If you’re looking for a unique gift for that 65th birthday, I found some fun stuff for you to give.
  • Birthday Gifts for a 65-Year Old Man. If your 65-year-old uses handkerchiefs then the Patterned Handkerchiefs are a great gift.
  • I have given the Woodstock Candy many times as a gift. Everyone, no matter your age loves this! You can pick the year for the candy and it will bring back all those favorite memories from that era. He will talk about the time he went to the dime store to get his favorite treat. When candy only cost a dime. Get ready for all the fun stories.
  • No one wants to give a generic, boring gift to someone. We tend to think someone in their 70’s should dress a certain way and act a certain way. I believe we need to look at who they were in their life, then give that gift. If they loved to fish, give them fishing stuff. If they were a farmer, give them something a farmer needs. Do not limit your gifts because of their age. Have fun, give them something cool and new! A great idea is the Echo Dot so he can tell Alexia to play Old Country Music, or Rap, or Cajun. Whatever he loves.
