Would it be okay to put a 65 watt light bulb in a 60 watt lamp?

Yes. That's fine, not that big of a difference

I would say yes only because the light bulb is only five watts over but I would hate for you to do it because I said it was okay and have the light bulb blow up or something.

I have a lamp that I've done that for years. I agree that a difference that small won't hurt anything. I'd never try if if the wattage was much higher.

The safest way would be If you want more light , Then use a compact fluorescent bulb (The spiral kind) of 100 watt equivalent , You get more light and uses only 23-25 watts which in much less than a standard bulb and plus , They operate cooler than a standard bulb . Anytime you need more light from a small fixture , Use a compact fluorescent bulb , It is your best and safest alternative
