Celebrate The Grandest Of All Birthdays With Marvelous 100Th Birthday Gifts
Author: Roger Black
The 100th birthday deserves to be called a super-milestone birthday and when someone reaches this birthday, that person deserves to be hailed like a monarch. The 100th birthday should be celebrated in a princely fashion such that the President of the US sends you a letter wishing a very happy birthday (this is a common practice in the United States). Friends, family, neighbors, colleagues and all the near and dear ones of the birthday girl or boy, can add more sentiment to the occasion by making a retrospective of the entire life of the 100year old person in a scrapbook. The photos will start from the childhood and depict his or her entire journey of life. This would be a truly touching gift and only a few can present such wonderful 100th birthday gifts.
Another fascinating idea for honoring the just-turned 100 year old, is to arrange a special event for the special occasion where everyone in the entire family will share their stories about the birthday boy or girl, what role the person had played in their life, how the person has stood by everyone through thick and thin, etc. and the speech should end with a message from the family member to the 100 year old. Speeches from the near and dear ones will make heartiest 100th birthday gifts.
You can deviate from these out-of-the-box gift ideas and think of something that follows the ages old tradition of material gift giving. Put your thinking cap on and come up with extraordinary ideas for presenting 100th birthday gifts. Take all your family members on board; bring them along with you on trips to the supermarket, hit the specialty gift stores and fish out the items that seem to be perfect as 100th birthday gifts.
Not everyone gets to celebrate their 100th birthday. Being a centenarian is really a special and rare feeling. But when it comes to 100th birthday gifts, what can you think of gifting someone who has been around for a whole century? You do not have to choose something made of platinum or diamond or something that can make you bankrupt. Simple stuff like a coffee mug embossed with the picture or name of the birthday boy or girl, or a birthday clock wherein the photo of the centenarian would be displayed under the hands. These are beautiful 100th birthday gifts that will not cost you a fortune.
Among the milestone birthdays, the 40th birthday is quite a prominent one. It comes at a time when a person can neither be called young nor old. 40th birthday gifts have the essence of this time of life one transits from being young to getting old.
