90th Birthday Gifts
Turning 90 is so special and so unique. Try as we might, many of us don't make it to this special milestone birthday. Sometimes this person is a grandma or a grandpa, so you might want to use this theme to mark the birthday. Another idea might be to figure out what happened when they were born, and create a party celebration around a year or even theme. So what to buy for a 90th birthday? Here are a few ideas that might help.
- Ask the party guests ahead of time to make a short funny limerick (just 5 or 6 lines) either about the person themselves, and a funny quirk about them, or something about their age.
- Buy one of our mugs on this page, and fill it with their favorite teas, or a bag of retro candy that they will remember having as adults. Be sure to make sure they are not diabetic, if you choose the candies idea.
- Order a fake newspaper from our store. This makes a fantastic idea because it has the person's name on it, which is always appreciated by the gift recipient. What you can expect to receive is the black frame shown online, and the personalized birthday gift inside it. The USA leader of that year tells everyone that your special person was born, and then the newspaper has the main news headline from the birthday month. You can even choose to personalize the very bottom of the gift with a little message from you, the gift giver.
- Is the birthday man or woman of a particular ethnic background, e.g. Italian, German, etc? One fun suggestion is to have a potluck adventure of the favorite food specialties of the region. For Italian, one person could bring lasagna, one could bring carbonara, etc. to share. The reason this makes a special gift idea is because at that particular age, often the person no longer cooks for themselves, or does not often get homecooked food where they reside.
90th Birthday Decorations & Party Supplies
Now that you have some ideas for gifts, how to make the party a special and unique event?
One popular decoration idea is to fill the entire ceiling with streamers that hang down with the number on them, spaced about 8 inches apart. When guests enter the room for the first time, it makes a stunning visual effect.
Gender can also become a decorating factor. If you are choosing 90th birthday gifts for men, does he have a favorite sports team? You could decorate the venue in the sport team colors, and find custom banners that have the sports team on there. If you are planning it for women, perhaps she is a huge pet lover. You could decorate the room with pictures of cats, or dogs. Get creative and you will find that it's worth the effort when you receive the thank-yous from the guest and the recipient. They will be stunned at your efforts.
