Hello lovely friends, I enjoy making my truly delicious chicken cacciatore for celebrating, well anything really. I smile as I think of who I might gift it to & cook it with love. I keep frozen packs for 2 (altho most of my buds are solo so lucky them:)) & just luv giving it out on their occaisons
Hello. What a lovely post, positive and happy! Love your hat. Yes I agree, all lovely ideas! My birthday falls the week before Christmas, so things always feel a little hectic. For my 60th birthday I had a day out by train in York with 3 friends. I organised it & we had the best time! With the family we took the car (about 47 miles) to Rosebery Topping in Middlesbrough and we climbed that. As you say, both were happy experiences I’ll always treasure. I got flowers too. A close friend bought a sweet little book, called “Why you’re my bestie”. Have you seen these? The blanks get filled in by the sender, 50 responses. So unique and special that I have since bought some for other friends’ birthdays xx
The beret looks so lovely on you, do you know where did your friend learn to knit this type of hat? I'm thinking about knitting one for my mom for her birthday as well but I couldn't find any hat knitting video that as lovely as yours. I'll appreciate it if you're willing to share, thank you very much!
I just try to listen throughout the year to see what my friends over 60 like and go from there. I prefer to take them out to lunch or maybe a pedicure together at the more of a splurge organic nail place in town. I've already planned my 60th (coming up) birthday - two week cruise, just me and the hubby. My 50th was a surprise birthday and I'm not a big fan of surprises.
Love the hat! I think a great gift would be a certificate for a tailor, so one could get one's clothes altered or repaired with ease. Or maybe a "Crafternoon" with friends, where others bring the supplies to try a new craft, and everyone can have a cup of tea of coffee and hang out doing this new activity, without the birthday girl having to store a bunch of supplies.
My 60th birthday was yesterday. I drove from Maine to Connecticut to adopt a senior rescue dog. I didn't want the day to be about me, I wanted to help animals in need. I think it was the best birthday ever! Please consider a donation to a rescue group or shelter and help save a life.
When I turned 60 in 2017, I gave myself the gift I wanted more than anything else. I had a "Sixty for 60" party. I invited 60 fabulous women to celebrate my 60th birthday with me. I had the event at a local restaurant during happy hour, which was very affordable. Women from every part of my life (including my three daughters) joined together to celebrate with me. I asked my guests not to give me a gift but instead to donate to their choice of two service organizations to which I belong. In total, we raised more than $1,500! Best gift ever!
My daughters arranged a surprise party for my 60th at a local restaurant and invited all my family. They made a banner with funny photos of me pulling faces (it's a thing our family do in photos pull funny faces),, they made me wear it walking through the harbour where the restaurant is, I did get a few funny faces from other people there. It was great fun. They also booked a w/end at a posh hotel for just me and my daughters with treatments as well that was lovely. Unfortunately I have a husband who would never think of doing things like that, all he ever does is give me a card with money in it even though I have arranged special treats for him often for his birthdays.
For my 60th I celebrated in Verona, Italy (with hubby) and it was fabulous. Having recently moved from Canada to France, permanently, we can now travel around Europe by train and stay in AirBnB's quite affordably. Hubby and I decided quite early in our marriage that we wouldn't wait or expect someone else to plan our birthdays. We would talk about our wishes and decide together how we would spend each and every birthday. We never expected gifts and if someone asked us what we wanted we would usually say oh just a visit or a phone call or a card would be great. Many times, my husband would surprise me with a special gift. Some years when our kids were small it would be simple - maybe just a special meal made at home or a stroll in nature. Next year when hubby turns 60, he'd like to plan a visit to Prague.
I love the idea of photos, journals or something personal made by those I love. In general I ask for gifts that can be used up so that I'm not accumulating lots of stuff - eg expensive tea, hand cream etc..Sharing a meal with people is also precious. I gave a musician friend a beautifully bound copy of Brahms' piano works for his 70th, and another a leather bound journal to record exciting plans for the next decade on her 60th. Loved your ideas Margaret :-)
Margaret, You made my day,, I was so happy that you received the hat, I really was not even sure it would reach you as we are so far apart. You are a very special person and have brought a lot of smiles into my life. I look so forward to watching your program. My husbend Jack wrapped the little box as he always does such a good job. It was my pleasure to send it to you. Lots of hugs,, Your friend from Canada. Zarina.

A dear friend, now deceased, used to create birthday games and puzzles that involved gift choices based on things she knew I liked or had on my bucket list: a hot air balloon ride, a day trip, a favorite restaurant, a cooking class, a service, a magazine subscription. Depending on the cost, I could choose one, two or three (least expensive). One year she based the selections on the 4 elements: earth, air, fire, and water.She usually presented the gift at a brunch or dinner at a restaurant that we both loved or were curious about. The best part was spending the time with my friend who in her brief 38 years really lived abundantly and adventurously. I carry the gift of her creativity and courage, and find it hard to believe that it's been almost 25 years since she passed away suddenly. I still miss her after all these years.
Good morning (7am) Margaret, I started purchasing and enjoying Pukka teas thanks to you! You hair length and color are right on as is that gorgeous necklace, wow. In Tennessee we give gift cards, a pedicure I love or for a nice restaurant, gets the birthday girl (guy) out and they cook and clean up, bookstore or department store cards and fresh flowers are a staple (minimalist can throw out in several days too) a special picture frame or lovely candle, pretty make up bag would also work, handmade gifts are super special indeed, thanks for another enjoyable video, have a wonderful evening your way. <3
I am going to be 65 this October. When I was 60, three of my children had a dinner for me and I got a beautiful turquoise sweater (in just my style) and the latest book from my favorite author (Nicholas Sparks). Last year for my birthday, my son gave me flowers delivered to my office on my birthday + flowers to be delivered every week for the rest of the year. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! 💐
Good morning... cute hat looks great on you! . I love just being with friends and or family and enjoying a nice dinner at home or out. Nothing like lingering around a table over a simple meal, talking and laughing. It doesn't have to be extravagant, it's about spending time together. ....... Have a great day everyone!,
I got a beautiful flower arrangement from my two older sisters and a trip to northern Michigan to tour and taste at a few wineries with a young couple I know. Best birthday ever! I never do/get either of those things. Also got taken to a movie by a young man I know (I'm like his aunt). AND another young couple invited me to watch a movie and eat Indian food at their home. (All these young people are brothers and sisters and their spouses.) Really--the best birthday ever. What we did was great, but like you said, the best part was spending time with them.
My son and his partner took me on a vacation to northern Italy for my 60th, love those memories, as they told me on this trip that they were expecting my first grandchild... was a wonderful birthday!!!! Here in Iceland, any birthday ending in a 0, is a huge event, with parties and big gifts, and often , gifts for women are gift cards for spa treatments and city getaways abroad
With family, it would be a meal, with a friend a coffee date, the memories are the most important thing to me, totally irrelevant, my granddaughter turns 18 next year, along with a piece of jewellery she will receive a photo album of memories of times spent with us, if I'm asked what I would like, it's usually " oh something for the garden please" the hat looks lovely, perfect colour!
I was extremely fortunate that my children bought me a lovely cruise for my 60th birthday I didn’t want anything not even a party as I didn’t want them to spend too much on me as they all have their own commitments so I was so surprised and emotional when they presented me with a card and the tickets for the cruise I broke down in tears 😭 for what they had done and them telling me how much I done for them whilst growing up I was just happy to be with them as a family as I thought it was just going to lunch I will always cherish what they did I am now 65 and yes I have been on more holidays but that will always be my most memorable from my 3 boys and their partners
