Personalised Milestone Birthday Gift Ideas

16th February 2022

Birthdays provide the perfect opportunity to treat your loved ones to gifts you know they deserve. Every birthday is a special one, but some numbers just seem more significant more than others and for these years, we like to think about how you can make the gifts a person receives just as significant. Read on to explore milestone birthday gift inspiration regardless of the age you’re looking to buy for.

The Early Years

Even from an early age gifts can be made special and something to be cherished for years to come. From treasured keepsake to games to get the little ones involved with, there’s isn't a limit to things you can create!

Personalised 1st Birthday Gifts

More for the parent’s memories, a child’s first birthday can be a wonderful time to celebrate with family and share in the special moment. Seeing your little one grow is such a pleasure, and celebrating that big first date is a special time. To help you make the birthday unforgettable (for you), we’ve rounded up some gift ideas for the 1-year-old to be.

Creating smaller gifts that they can carry with them through their whole life is a great place to start -think about creating their very own teddy bear featuring a photo of the loving parents. However, sometimes a gift for a first birthday can be something to enjoy later in life. Creating a CEWE myPhotos account allows you to make folders to store photos of your child’s life to be looked back on in later life – think of it as a virtual time capsule!

If your child loves educational toys, a photo board book is a great addition to a bed time routine. Place images of family, animals or places in your life on 22 extra-thick durable pages to help train motor skills and help recognition.

Personalised Gifts for a New Adult

We say age is just a number, however, some numbers mean that the world opens up a just a little bit more. 18th and 21st birthdays are often seen as birthdays that mean a person becomes a little more free to do what they want, so why not remind them that they were once a chid with a cute baby photo on a mug for coffee or maybe a mug cake? For those getting to grips with shopping for themselves, create a fun family photo collage on a tote bag to help them with their weekly shop - without the single use plastics too.

Alternatively, entering into the adult world can be stressful and a great way to relieve that stress is through creativity and drawing. Create a personalised set of watercolour pencils and help them find a new hobby to express themselves.

Celebrate Life on a Milestone Birthday

As we grow older, we have so many stories that are left untold. However, we often don’t have a keepsake to remind ourselves of the times we’ve shared. Creating a personalised gift for 50th, 60th or 70th can remind someone that you care for them and help them remember the wonderful times they’ve had in their life.

Personalised 50th Birthday Gift

The 50th birthday is considered the “golden birthday” and so it should be as - it’s celebrating half a century of life! To really see a smile on their face, we love the idea of gifting a framed photo print surrounded by a premium golden metal frame. Take a favourite photo of theirs and have it professionally printed ready to hang. If you can’t decide on one photo, create a collage of up to 27 photos on a larger print and add text and Clipart to really emphasise the 50th birthday theme.

Personalised 60th Birthday Gifts

The diamond birthday doesn’t mean everyone has to gift your diamonds, although that would be nice. It can mean gifting something that is special and meaningful in its own respect. Maybe something with a sparkle will put a tinkle in their eye and create a lasting smile. A photo embedded in a crystal heart is an elegant gift perfect for a significant other. Ideal as a desk ornament or an addition to the side tables décor.

Taking a meaningful photo and turning it into a jigsaw to be put together as a family, couple or group of friends is a way for them to slowly piece their past life together in a fun way. It can be a smaller side gift as a small personalised puzzle or a larger gift with photos being printed on a 1500 or 2000 piece puzzle.

Personalised 70th Birthday Gifts

As the platinum jubilee birthday, the 70th is a wonderful time to get together and not just celebrate the one life on the day but all those they have touched in their life. At this point in their life, they be considered to have it all and this can make them difficult to buy for. However, this can mean they appreciate the little things even more. Adding small touches to their home to showcase their life and memories you’ve had with them is perfect. Create a set of photo magnets , or feature one key memory on a personalised ceramic magnet. Use it to create a collage on any magnetic surface!

The ultimate gift for someone who has lived such a long, wonderful life is a photo book compiling all of these wonderful moments into a worthwhile keepsake. A large landscape photo book is a fantastic personalised gift for a 70th birthday. Not only can you eternalise photos taken over a lifetime but with the addition of text, Clipart and video via QR code, a persons’ story can be told in a heartfelt way. Every photo book is completely customisable and can be displayed as a coffee table book or safely kept on the bookshelf ready for its next review.
