    How about some music from the fifties when he was a energetic young man.... something that will make him feel he wants to Bop and Swing and dance to the music of his youth........just a thought

    Default Birthday present

    You don't tell us your relationship with this 70 year old man - I'm surmising he's your Dad/Uncle/Father-In-Law - good grief that covers a fair amount of possible presents then !! My dear Dad was 80 a couple of years ago and we bought him a really good watch - before that he always believed in "Wotsits" best and, because, I lost my Darling Mum 11 years ago, she was never there to advise him any different ...

    A gift voucher for whatever tickles his fancy

    Or for a more sober idea how about a newspaper or something from the day he was born? Or name him a star???

    A shark. I've always wanted one and I'm 35. By the time I'm 70 I'll want one twice as much. Easy

    If he likes whisky then you get vouchers at the Pulteney Distillery that he can go there, pour his own bottle, seal/wax the bottle and write his own label.

    Its something different.

    Default what can you buy a 70 yr old man

    A years supply of Viagra, perhaps you will 6 months supply back after he wears himself out, but just think of the pleasure you gave him.

    Try to find a consumable gift as most people past the age of 40 don't need or want more possessions.
