As we get older, we tend not to mark every birthday in the way we did as kids. Children burst out of their beds at dawn year after year, eager to see what sort of surprises await them, but as adults, we tend to get a little blasé.

65 is a big deal though — a real milestone for anyone and it deserves to be marked properly.

Whether you’re looking for something for a friend or relative who’s retired, or is still working hard, at IJLI we’ve got just the thing. From great gifts that will bring back memories of their childhood, through to more fun and funny gifts and things for all the most popular hobbies.

Because 65 is right around retirement age, hobbies can start to come to the fore again. For many older folks, watching football is really popular (or maybe saying things aren’t like what they used to be!) and our personalised football gifts make great 65th birthday gift ideas. We have everything from the ultimate football quiz book to comprehensive history books for many of your favourite teams.

We’ve got non-too serious 65th birthday gifts for that loveable old family member who needs a guide to grow older with grace (or disgrace!) with this wholeheartedly tongue-in-cheek Personalised Haynes Pensioner Manual – it’s a thing of comic-genius. And there’s the ever-popular creator of Thunderbirds and other iconic 60s characters, Gerry Anderson, celebrated in this Collectors Edition Book. Yes, M’Lady.

What does the person you’re buying for like to get up to? Anyone who spends a lot of time at home wants a comfortable, stylish environment. Our house and home section has a variety of great personalised items to create the perfect space. For the young at heart, a Banksy-style framed print, for the more sentimental a farmhouse-style jug, or for the foodies - a chopping board for the kitchen. I Just Love It has the 65th birthday gifts you need.

A 65th birthday isn’t just any old birthday — it’s a milestone in a long life. To make sure all of our gifts are as special as can be, we offer personalisation on nearly all of our 65th birthday presents. You can monogram a stylish cheese board or chopping board, create cool custom prints and photo frames, and even put personalised labels on wine and spirit bottles. A personalised gift shows that you value the importance of finding the perfect present.
