But what if your birthday person prefers wine to coffee? Okay, maybe not at the same time of day, but vino is more up their alley. I love this “21 with 49 Years Experience” caption mug on Amazon. After all, life is all about perspective, and age is just a number (or two numbers, in this case)! Your 70-year-old has lots of experience with being 21, almost five decades. This 70th birthday wine tumbler is BPA-free and has a splash-proof EZ close lid.

Your 70th-birthday person probably loves newspapers. After all, they (and many others) grew up with them! And who wouldn’t want to be front-page news? This customized gift from Etsy puts your friend or family member’s face on the front page of a vintage look printed newspaper. It’s so much fun, especially for print lovers. To personalize your gift, you specify the size you want. You can choose from five different sizes. Of course, the headline is all about your loved one’s birthday. You include a subtitle and other information, like date and place of birth.
Does your friend or family member love fishing? This is a fun T-shirt from Etsy that says they’ve been “Keepin’ It Reel” since their birth year! I highly recommend this gift if you ever go fishing with your 70th-birthday person. You can choose from three different colors: black, navy, and charcoal. It also comes in a range of sizes, from small to 2X. The t-shirt itself is comfortable as well as stylish. It’s made of 100% ring-spun cotton and is pre-shrunk.
Everyone loves an art print to hang on their wall, so why not get this artistic piece of decor for the home as a 70th birthday gift?
