A man turning 50 deserves a celebration and gifts as unique in variety and character as he is. Let’s take a look at a variety of gifts ranging from food to spa treatments, because there’s something for everyone. Here are five unusual 50th birthday gifts for him.
Michelin Star Tasting Menu at Club Gascon
Celebrate this milestone birthday with the luxurious gift of food. Taste a variety of French delicacy in traditional and original combinations, with specially imported wines.
Take home a personalized celebration card signed by chef Pascal Aussignac. After the meal, he can visit the nearby Barbican Centre or the Museum of London. St. Paul’s Cathedral is close enough for a visit as well.
A BIRTHDAY TOAST
Microbrewery Beer Tasting with Food Pairing
Get ready to enjoy beer tasting with food pairing for two at the infamous Hops & Glory. Give the gift of a freshly poured beer and a tasting lead by a beer expert such as Durham Atkinson (2015 Pub Personality of the Year.)
He will be able to try six unique craft beers matched with delicious food, like bratwurst and Pilsner. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the brewery which holds over 100 pale ales, wheat beers, stouts, porters, lagers and Trappists beers. In the cellar, he will also be able to see the microbrewery.
When he is finished, he and his friend can always take a stroll by George Orwell’s house.
PUT THE RIGHT FOOT FORWARD
Bespoke Shoes with Heron & Co.
On this birthday, set him off on the right foot with a pair of correctly fitting shoes. Not just any shoes will do, mind you, but a pair of bespoke hand made shoes by Heron & Co. on Savile Row.
Only the finest calf leather is used, and he will have personal consultations and fitting with a master shoemaker. The selection of soles, stitching and toe caps will be his to make, and he will also receive accessories such as shoelaces, shoe tree, bags and polish. When the shoes are ready, they will be home delivered.
Here is true customisation and personalisation for the true gentleman.
TREATED LIKE A GENTLEMAN
Bespoke Treatment at Gentlemen’s Tonic
What can you get a man whose time is precious and limited? Perhaps some time to relax is the best gift of all. Why not give the gift of a manly spa break?
Gentlemen’s Tonic is a soothing, elegant and urban sanctuary for men. It contains leather, marble and wood surroundings with private treatment rooms. Here, he can celebrate his 50 years by refreshing his mind, and rejuvenating his body with 125 minutes of gentlemen’s treatments. The treatments include a multi-vitamin facial, as well as foot and hand treatments.
At the end of this enriching experience, Gentlemen’s Tonic aftershave balm, facial scrub or cleanser will be sent home with the birthday boy.
RAISE YOUR GLASS
Private Tour for Two at Hambleton Vineyard
What better way to celebrate 50 years, than to raise a glass of wine at the Hambleton Vineyard. Here is the oldest commercial Vineyard in England. Vineyard production is under the care of Herve Jestin, an expert on minimal-intervention wine making.
Vineyard owner, Ian Kellet, will be the guide of this private tour for two, and explain dosages, sweetness and the aging process. Enjoy the “Grape to Glass” process behind English sparkling wine. Taste a variety of sparkling wines from Europe, such as Cava and Prosecco among others.
To finish this experience, a bespoke bottle of Hambleton Clasic Cuvee will be brought home, to enjoy at leisure.
Fifty years is something big to celebrate! Make it memorable by giving something he won’t guess with these 50th birthday gifts for him.
