70th Birthday Ideas for Dad

Is your dad getting to the 70-year-old mark, and you do not know what you buy him? Don’t worry; there are several options in the market to choose from depending on his taste and hobbies. Seventy years is a milestone, and as a son or daughter, you probably understand everything your dad needs and loves to do.

At this age, he has most likely seen it all, so whatever you gift him must help him in his daily routine. Or help him revisit old memories. Whatever you do, find something sentimental with meaning. I did a little research on what most seniors prefer on such birthdays. It was impressive to understand what they like. 

70th Birthday Ideas for Dad?

Here are some of the best options that your 70-year-old dad will love for his birthday. 

Luwak Star Coffee Bean

This is one of the best items you can gift a coffee-loving 70-year-old man. Luwak coffee, also known as kopi luwak in Indonesia, is the world’s rarest gourmet coffee. It features the sweetest coffee beans from civets that roam freely in the Gayo highlands of Central Aceh, Indonesia.

These coffee beans organically grow without chemical fertilizers and are much ecofriendly, hence their nickname, green beans. The handpicked coffee beans go through an entirely natural process that involves manual sorting, sun drying, and roasting to give you the perfect product. With is you won’t expose your old man to any

The Luwak star coffee bean is heavy-bodied with slight acidity, making it a perfect diet for an aging man. It has a clean, smooth, earthy taste with some hint of chocolate or caramel flavor. 100-gram coffee beans are enough to make 10 cups, so you can buy as much as you want to gift someone an illustrious period of enjoyment.

BedJet Cooling Heating Fan

At 70, all a man requires is a peaceful sleep in a conducive environment with a regulated cooling and heating system. There is no better way to achieve that than BedJet Cooling Heating Fan; it can be BedJet V2 or BedJet 3, but the latter is more modern, so I recommend it.

This device uses a simple concept. It comes with a large blower that sits under your bed. You then use a remote control to blow hot or cold air into the environment, depending on your needs. If you want to make it more memorable, it would be best to accompany the gift with a custom sheet.

If he has a tight clearance beneath his bed, he will appreciate the new design that comes with the BedJet 3 unit that sheds over 30% of the previous size to fit within mere 6 inches of clearance on the bottom of the bed frame.

Even though the unit provides cooling and heating functionalities, it is the cooling part that the recipient will love, especially in the summer. It cools through powered ventilation of fresh air directly injected into the bed.  It gently gets rid of the body heat and moisture trapped on the mattress and bed covers.

Gift your old man this to help him keep the right temperature in bed, ensuring they have the perfect night’s sleep they deserve.
