Gift Ideas For Men aged 60 to 70

'As one door closes another one opens'. This is a time of change in most men's lives. Many will be retiring from paid employment. Many others, with businesses to run, are looking to balance work, family and recreation commitments. It's a time for looking back on the path taken so far, and looking forward to travel, spending time with family and friends, and doing all the things that did not fit in to a busy working life.
