If you want to make an outdoorsman’s birthday more special, consider giving him a gift like fishing paraphernalia, something to enhance his camping trips, a chartered helicopter ride, sports gear, or something he can use for gardening.
Turning 50 years old is a meaningful occasion which you can honor in several ways. Some ideas for 50th birthday gifts are a simple but sentimental CD recording of birthday wishes or you can go for a grand party. Searching for a birthday gift for the outdoorsman in your life will prove to be fun and exciting as well. Consider the following gift ideas:
It seems like fishermen are always in need of fishing supplies and accessories. A brand new fishing rod may be an ideal gift for the old school fisherman who loves quiet fishing trips. You can instead give him accessories for fishing or various types of lures, if he already has numerous fishing rods. There are more sophisticated fishing devices like a digital fish finder which fishermen can use on their boats.
Something that can make his camping trips more enjoyable
If the celebrant loves camping trips; consider giving him something that can make his camping experience more comfortable. Consider buying an air mattress that he can easily tuck in a backpack and sleep comfortably on while camping out or a set of portable recliners that he can sit and relax on at his campsite. Alternatively, you can buy him a camp stove he can use to prepare hearty meals even when he is away from home. You can also get him a pair of binoculars so he can enjoy viewing various wildlife on his trips.
Charter a trip onboard a helicopter
Outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers will surely enjoy something as exciting and unique as a helicopter ride. Some sightseeing companies offer helicopter tours over cities and different landmarks. Make reservations for the birthday boy and include his family and friends as his guests so they can all marvel at the scenery. Depending on the tour itineraries, scenic helicopter rides last from 10 to up to 40 minutes but every minute of the whole experience is sure to be exciting.
Most outdoorsmen enjoy physical excursions and sports. If he is a collector of sports memorabilia, find something he’ll prize as an addition to his collection. If he enjoys playing golf, think about buying him a new club, bag or clothing he can wear for playing. Brand new basketball shoes can be great for a basketball fan. Should you be uncertain as to which sports he prefers, a gift certificate from a sporting goods outlet would be a good alternative.
Older outdoor lovers may be interested in stress relieving hobbies such as gardening. Give him gardening tools to support his interests. Give him a gardening hat or gardening equipment like shovels, hoes and spades. If he already has those, you can go the extra mile and give him a fountain to enhance his garden landscape. If it is already planting season, why not include new plants that he can add to his garden.
