Appropriate gift for 80th birthday 2008/5/17 12:43
My boyfriend's family is having a big party to celebrate his grandmother's 80th birthday. I would appreciate ideas for a traditional Japanese gift. Thank you.

The 88th birthday is important but the 80th birthday is nothing tradional in Japan. The Japanese didn't even commonly celebrate birthdays until WW2 was over.

Perhaps your boyfriend's family follows a special tradition. Do you think it could be regional or religious? Maybe you can ask your boyfriend where this custom comes from. Or maybe they're just making it big because 80 is a big number and not because it's traditional.
