My Dad's 60th Birthday is comming

It's that time of year for me again. Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays!!
There is a special one this year in particular - my dad's 60th.
I am really excited as I believe it's such a fantastic milestone. I am having his party at my house as I have lots of space. My dilemma is....What do I buy him?
I have brainstormed this over and over alone and with everyone and anyone. Everytime somebody gives me a suggestion he either has it or has done it. One thing suggestion that has stuck in my mind, 'an experience'. So I jumped on Red Balloon this morning and came across a scenic flight in a Tiger Moth Plane. This is the plane below, I think this could be perfect anything with some history behind it dad loves. I started to giggle at considering buying him this, as maybe he could be 'Biggles" for the day.

What do you think? I would love to know if anyone else has done given something like this before? I am guessing it would be an absolute blast.

Hey Kylie,

My dad is also 60...on Sunday. We actually gave him a Tiger Moth joy ride (and yes he did look like Biggles) for his birthday last year and he absolutely loved it. We booked it with Red Balloon too but for the Gold Coast. My dilemma is now finding something better for this year's special birthday. I say book the Tiger Moth flight for your dad. He'll love it!

What a fantastic idea! My Dad was a steam train 'fancier', and we'd thought about giving him a day learning to be a driver. Unfortunately, he became ill and died before it could happen. So, if you want to treat him - go ahead! Love him, spoil him, and do it all now!!
