A 70th birthday deserves a big birthday celebration. Throwing a “happy 70th birthday” party can make your friend or family member feel cherished and loved. You can hold your 70th birthday party at a venue, a restaurant, or at someone's home.

Another way to share beautiful memories is to ask guests to bring or share photos or videos of them and the birthday person. If you ask beforehand, you can turn these into a slideshow or mini-movie celebrating the wonderful things they have done in their lives so far.

What are some good 70th birthday gift ideas?
Anything that spans 70 years is considered to be an outstanding achievement. This includes anniversaries and even the reign of royalty. Monarchs who reign for 70 years, turn 70, or have had their kingdom for 70 years celebrate their platinum jubilee. Similarly, couples who have been married for 70 years celebrate their platinum anniversary.
It might be a nice gesture to acknowledge the massive accomplishment of someone who is celebrating their 70th birthday by giving them something made of platinum. Platinum jewelry like rings, necklaces, or bracelets would make beautiful 70th gifts for women while platinum cufflinks could make an excellent 70th birthday gift for men.
Although you could give the birthday boy or birthday girl a platinum gift, thoughtful 70th birthday presents do not need to be more extravagant than 50th birthday gifts or 60th birthday gifts. Find some inspiring 60th birthday gift ideas here.
70th birthday gifts also don't need to be less extravagant than 80th birthday gifts, 90th birthday gifts, or even 100th birthday gifts.
The secret to giving the perfect 70th birthday gift is the same as any other gift: it should be something thoughtful. The best gifts are those that come from the heart, with a lot of thought (and sometimes planning and resources) invested into them.
Some thoughtful 70th birthday gift ideas include tickets to your loved one's favorite show or an event they would love to attend, a class for a hobby that they enjoy or would like to take up, or a gift card to their favorite store.
Many 70-year-olds might enjoy experience gifts instead of things. They might love to spend a day with their loved ones or do something that they always wanted to do but never got around to. Gifting someone who turns 70 years old with a memorable experience might be more meaningful than another tie or pair of socks. Of course, if the person loves collecting ties or socks, these would make excellent 70th gifts for men!
Personalized gifts like monogrammed anything usually make great gifts. You can also add a more personal touch to a 70th birthday gift by adding a heartfelt birthday card. With much of our communication happening digitally these days, it is always a pleasant surprise to receive a handwritten note from someone telling us how much we mean to them.
