Unusual Gifts for Her 70th Birthday
Memories Over Things
Turning 70 is a major milestone, so why not celebrate with something that will last a lifetime? Instead of buying a traditional gift, you can put together a unique gift that celebrates the past and looks forward to the future. A great way to do this is to create a memory book full of photos, mementos, and other sentimental items. If you have the time and budget, you can have the book professionally printed and bound. But if you’re short on time and resources, you can easily make a digital version on a website like Shutterfly.
The Gift of Music
Music is a great way to transport us to another place and time. So why not give the gift of music to mark her 70th birthday? A great way to do this is to create a custom playlist of her favorite songs, old and new. You could also get her a subscription to a streaming service like Spotify or Apple Music, or give her a vintage record player. A unique gift idea would be to put together a compilation of songs from her youth, or songs that have special significance to the two of you.
Personalized gifts are always a hit, and there are many unique options to choose from. For example, you could get her a personalized canvas print with a special photo of the two of you or of a place you both love. Or, you could get her a personalized mug, jewelry, or keychain with her name or initials. You could also get her a personalized book, with her name as the protagonist or a story that’s tailored just for her.
The Gift of Experience
Rather than giving her a physical gift, why not give her an experience she’ll never forget? You could book tickets to a show or concert, or plan an unforgettable trip. You could also book a spa day, or set up a special dinner with her closest friends and family. Alternatively, you could arrange for a special activity like a cooking class, a painting class, or a wine tasting. Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be a memorable experience for her.
If you’re looking for a sentimental gift, why not make her something special? You could make her a scrapbook full of photos and mementos, or write her a heartfelt letter. You could also make her a quilt or blanket with her favorite colors and patterns. If you’re crafty, you could make her a photo frame or a jewelry box. If you’re not the creative type, you could always buy something special and personalize it with a special message or photo.
