The Big 5-0; Hawaii 5-0; The Half-Century; Five Top Decades. What do you buy that special person in your life that has reached their 50th birthday? Here are 3 reasons why a Blues Train gift card is the best 50th birthday gift idea.
The older we get, the more important it is to celebrate and mark milestone birthdays and equally important is to give gifts that help create unique experiences and make lasting memories.
We’ve seen a lot in the past 25 years of operation:
- product launches; and
- a number of 40th and 50th birthday milestones.
And this is what we’ve learnt over the past 25 years when it comes to the magic of making memories.
3 Reasons why a Blues Train gift card is the best 50th birthday gift idea.
The best Australian blues music – a Mini Music Festival in one night
There is something about combining music, specifically blues music, on a heritage railway as it moves along the tracks at 20kms per hour. And over the past 25 years, there has been a roll-call of Australian blues music royalty who have played The Blues Train.
The late, great, legendary Chris Wilson, a regular on The Train used to say about the Train that “playing The Blues Train is a rite of passage for all up-and-coming Australian blues artists”.
The line-up is like being at a mini music festival. On any given night, you might see:
- Jimi Hocking jamming it up with Geoff Achison or Sammy Owen (or with his blues outfit, Jimi Hocking’s Blues Machine);
- John McNamara and Andrea Marr pairing up as The McNaMarr Project, singing sweet blues-inspired soul;
- Electric Blues Collective delivering Chicago-style blues via the Melbourne blues scene; and
- Ezra Lee jumping and jiving around his Hammond as you jump & jive.
Flexibility when choosing dates
If your special person is hard to buy for, we can give you the option to give them the gift of flexibility. You can buy a single or double pass gift card, giving them the choice of when to ride. You could otherwise purchase a gift card valued anywhere from $50 up to $500 so they can take a few friends along, or they can buy some Blues Train merchandise on top of their tickets, to remind them of their night for years to come. And you can do this all from the comfort of your home. Select, purchase, print – 50th birthday gift idea sorted.
Making Memories to last a lifetime
You’ll be helping your special person to make their 50th birthday one to remember. The gift of an experience is something that lasts well beyond the actual costs. You can’t put a price on making someone’s 50th birthday party experience a memory to last a life-time.
You can purchase a gift card knowing that they will be fed, will see some incredible Australian live music on a unique festival stage (because, let’s face it, what is more, unique than seeing live music on a moving heritage train!) and who knows, maybe make new friends whilst they are making new memories – all because of you.
