A Guide To Your 50th Birthday Weekend

Birthdays should never be boring. We don't want anyone shrugging off their 50th birthday and opting for what they do every year - telling people they've had enough birthday bashes so they're not bothered about celebrating. We've been planning group trips for a long time and we KNOW that deep down even the staunchest birthday deniers want to celebrate. So, whoever you're planning for, we've got a trip that'll trump every bash to have been before!

Our Top-Tip: Go with your gut. You know them better than we do, but we've got the gift of planning expertise to make your idea into a pretty impressive reality. And remember...

Wise Up

Everyone assumes you know what you're doing. Maybe you do, maybe you don't, but that doesn't mean you need to fall into the same routine of 'drinks and dinner' or an M&S dine in for two deal. There's no shame in that, but you can do better!

It's Not Weird, It's Quirky!

You might know more than most what it's like to go your whole life being referred to as 'weird' - we prefer 'unique'. So, for a 50th birthday, we say bring on the quirk-factor to christen the event as truly unforgettable for those who have had a pretty wacky ride so far. If they've embraced the grey with pink highlights, then they probably deserve one of our unusual, crafty or adventure experiences.

You've Got It All, Baby

Everyone knows your birthday wish list gets shorter year on year. So, what do you get someone who has it all? The world is moving away from material gifts and moving towards experience. What a way to quash the existentialism of growing older than opting for a trip to remember with all the best of family and friends!

Don't Fake It, Just Make It

Fake it until you make it is not part of your repertoire anymore. Remember when you used to pretend to like clubbing? No one actually likes clubbing, if you hadn't already noticed. A 50th birthday trip will be on the terms of someone who knows you, so you won't have to feign enjoyment when someone takes you to a bar where it's too loud to hear.
