What gift can you give a man for his 50th birthday?

What gift can you give a man for his 50th birthday?

The 50-th birthday is an important moment in every person's life, because it notes the maturity and wisdom accumulated over the years. It is a new stage, a new life line filled with wisdom, dignity and confidence from what has been achieved so far. People who reach this age know what they want from life and they know how to achieve it. They are more patient and mature and feel they deserve such a special gift.



  1. Know the person's interests

This will help you sort the products that are of value to your friend and focus on products that are really related to their interests. Choose a product that corresponds to the person's hobbies and try to personalize it - with a special message or have it specially designed for their 50th birthday. Involving emotion in the process of choosing a gift always touches and impresses. Remember your own special day. What was the thing that most impressed and pleased you?



  1. Choose something that will always remind him of you and his special day

Birthdays are special moments and occasions to bring all your love and respect to a person by offering them a present that will remain a precious memory. Everyone who celebrates the birthday sees that they have reached a certain age and the special presents are those that return them to that special moment. Choosing a unique present is the best solution. However, this requires taste and tact. Make an effort and find a fine gift that will really impress.

  1. Make them feel special.

People love to have precious things that are created with emotion and thought, that bring energy and message, and birthdays are the perfect occasion to put all this into one object. Such items might not be cheap, but their value goes far beyond their price. A 50-th birthday is a symbol of wisdom and stability. It deserves to be honoured with an eternal present that will be treasured through the generations This will also bring emotion to you, because what really makes us happy is the feeling that we have truly honoured someone.



  1. Be unique with what you have chosen

One of the worries when choosing a gift is whether it will clash with someone else’s present. Therefore, you should seriously consider the personalization option. This is a very important part of the present and it guarantees that your message and the emotion you have put into it will be unmatched and unique. Personalization can be done in various ways; personal words accompanying your present, or unique craftsmanship addressing the birthday person. Whatever you choose, think about the value it will bring and the emotion it will stir in your friend.

  1. Forget about the 'money in an envelope' present

When we cannot choose a suitable present, we often fall back on the 'money in an envelope' option. But what does that really say? 'I didn’t have time to choose a present for you...', 'I don’t know what you’re interested in...', 'Maybe you need money...' Please don’t forget you are choosing a birthday present and such an option might be quite offensive to the birthday person. The birthday is an occasion that demands a special present that will show your feelings to the person and your attitude to them.



If you are looking for a unique, precious, personalized present, full of positive energy for a 50-th birthday, we have two suggestions depending on your loved one’s interests.

Luxurious whiskey cup

Hand-made of walnut and 24K gold-plated spun copper sheet, which gives it its perfect shape.
The wood is processed by special technology. Besides the walnut, the wood can be wenge, niangon, mahogany or other exotic wood.



Ever since ancient times, it has been thought that every item we give as a present, brings energy that can affect man both in a positive and negative direction. Besides showing our attitude towards the person, we also give them part of our energy and the thoughts that we have put into their gift. The materials from which the gifts are made have their meaning and are often a symbol of the person's age. Do not choose gifts of fragile material because, as you know, broken presents bring unhappiness. Choose hard and vital material, such as wood. According to Feng shui, wood can enhance a person's mind and stability, creating a sense of calmness and comfort, and help restore their strength.


Luxury packaging for an ultimate experience

We know what emotion the unpacking of a present brings, and how important all the small details of luxury and beauty are.

All our products are available in luxurious packaging, tailored to the shape and colours of the cup to give a complete finish to the overall impression.
The packaging is included in the price of the item.

You can also add a card with a personal message and greeting, which will further enhance the feeling of the special moment.



There is a risk of damage to the surface of the fine gold and silver coatings if exposed to too-frequent use and/or abrasive washing.

If the item is intended to be used frequently, we recommend that you order it in solid silver or gold. This is how your needs can be fully satisfied.



The ritual of holding a drink in your hand that relieves tension is a favourite of almost everyone because:

  It is an occasion to share time with our loved ones.
  It is connected with the sense of freedom.
  It is a symbol of our personal satisfaction with our successes.
  It is a sign of the end of a busy period.
  It's a reason to stay alone with our thoughts.
