Get sentimental with recorded greetings on CD

This will bring back special memories of your loved one from different times, making it a really sentimental 50th birthday gift. Do not forget to include a special video of greetings from you and your family or even from some of the celebrant’s closest friends to make it more meaningful.
Personalize a gold-themed accessory for the celebrant
Personalizing a present turns it into a gift especially made for the celebrant. To match the golden theme of a 50th birthday celebration, you may consider giving gold accessories, such as a bracelet, anklet, pendant, watch, or a ring on which you can include an engraving of the celebrant’s name and date of the celebration.
Make a scrapbook of fun-filled memories
Bring together fun and meaning by making a scrapbook especially for the 50th birthday celebrant.

You may also write greetings and include drawings by kids, grandchildren, nephews, and nieces to make the scrapbook more meaningful and sentimental.
Present a collection of items from yesteryear
Time capsules and chests also make great sentimental gifts for 50th birthday celebrants. You can use a bottle or a small box full of items that will remind your loved one of yesteryear. Put in magazine pages and newspaper clippings that were significant during the celebrant’s life. You can find a lot of these clips online. Include one or two childhood pictures, favorite childhood candies, old coins, stamps, and more. Another great idea is to include collectibles of the celebrant’s favorite sports team, music bands, and pastimes.
