The 60th year is a huge milestone. It is, for some, the dawning of a new age and adventure, while others want to kick back and relax. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to gifting. Some people prefer gifts on the sentimental side while some want something practical. So, we’ve prepared gifts ranging from self-care/pampering and gifts to funny gag gifts. Choosing what your 60-year-old would delight in just became a lot easier. And to make gift-buying a breeze, we’ve also included some great tips.

Choosing the best gifts for 60-year-olds

60-year-olds have lived life! They’ve had long careers and raised families, and they are getting ready to enter retirement. They focus heavily on simply enjoying time with their children and grandchildren, reflecting on their lives, and settling into the next chapter of their stories.

60 is a milestone that should be celebrated with the perfect gift, but it’s not a case of “one size fits all.” Ask yourself what their interests are. Do they seem intent on surrounding themselves with memories? Photo frames and other personalized items are a great choice. Do they seem invigorated and keen to try something new? Consider gifts that can facilitate new hobbies. Maybe they enjoy doing nothing but relaxing, in which case comfortable and luxurious items of clothing and pampering gifts are the way to go. Once you pinpoint what they love or enjoy doing, you’ll have a good idea of the type of gift you’re looking for.  

How we identified the best gifts for 60-year-olds

60-year-olds have had enough experience to know exactly who they are and their likes and dislikes. This also means that while one may crave peace, another may be gearing up for new adventures. We considered that interests, hobbies, and needs vary greatly and selected great gifts accordingly. 

When you reach this age, it’s natural to experience aches and pains. To alleviate pain and promote stress relief and general comfort, we chose massage tools, pampering gift sets, and items of clothing that will make everyday life far more pleasant and relaxing. Many 60-year-olds have taken good care of their health and physical well-being, and they still feel a youthful excitement toward trying new things and learning new hobbies and skills. We chose gifts that will encourage and facilitate their endeavors. 

If they have a great sense of humor that’s only increased with time, we realized that not just your typical gift would do. For this reason, we had to include some great gag gifts that they’ll get a kick out of.  

Tips for buying the best gifts for 60-year-olds

  1. Ask them
    Unless you want it to be a complete surprise, ask them. They’re straight shooters and will tell you exactly what they want.
  2. Pay attention
    If you’d prefer not to ask, the next course of action would be to listen. Chances are, they’ve spoken about their back that’s been aching, gadgets and appliances they’ve been meaning to get for the house, or the next hobby they’d like to take up. By paying attention, you won’t be stumped when buying a gift.
  3. Make it meaningful
    Nothing says “I love and appreciate you” more than a gift that’s meaningful to them alone. You’ve taken the time to understand their needs and interests and bought a gift accordingly.
