digital photo frame with photos of all the family on

My father is about the same age. Wine always a hit, and the newspaper from the day of his birth is a great idea. You could get a really good/nice/sentemental book and write a nice message in the front. You could take him out for a yummy meal - or make him one. Make a cake?


An oldie but goodie :lol:

a flying lesson?

does he like football-most grounds have tours and some do a meal with a player (or ex-player) too?

For our dads 60th we paid for him to go and feed the lemars at Marwell park cause he really likes Lemars. He loved it. We gave him the tickets as we did it a few months after his birthday as his birthday is in Feb so we did it when the weather was warmer


a day out or trip some where, nice memory for him and the grand kids maybe, places like chessigton also do the ye old photo shoots which would be a fun memento of the day

i know its a bit chilly, but a family picnic and walk in a woodland or national park place are nice


My father enjoys drowning squirrels in his water butt.
Maybe you could arrange for Ian Botham to help your father kill some vermin (if he is a cricket fan).
