Tell us more. What are his interests? Sporty? Foodie? Arty? Bookish? Travel? Also (sorry to be so vulgar) what's your budget?

I've got a couple of the cheaper items from here and secretly lust aftersome of the more expensive toys:

PS dh is 50 next year so interested in the idea!

My best gift ever (in dh's eyes) was probably the Swiss Army Knife. Has he got one of those? Or a wind-up torch?

IVe found an experience in an Aston Martin which I think he would likesmile

Helicopter trip if you can afford. Is fab. You can usually get one in your area for around 75 -95 pound. If he's not been in one before he'll love it. Good Luck.

I'm going to hire local arthouse cinema for dh - they will show his favourite film,get lots of tickets and it'll be in the programme and everything!

I would like to 'fly' in that windtunnel in milton keynes - safe skydiving is my kind of fun.

I think I read a survey that said that experiential gifts have much more potential for pleasure than material things.

Oooh, what a fab idea Lucky re; the arthouse cinema. I'm going to remember that one! smile

If you are going for the driving experience google 'Drivers Dream Days' or Prodrive - my DH had a 40th present with them and they were fab - very professional and efficient - we went to the circuit in Kenilworth

We did the cinema thing for a friend's 40th birthday. It was fantastic! Late afternoon showing of his favourite film, with lots of wine/beer/snacks. Then, off to a great restaurant for a lovely meal.
