Gifts with a Twist
I have a friend turning 50. The husband is having a party and has asked for no gifts, unless gag. I was going to give her 50 candy kisses, for when she feels like she needs a little love, and 50 paperclips, for when she needs a little help holding it together.
Does anyone have any other ideas that would go along with this idea???

For my husband's 40th, someone made a black wreath with 40 suckers stuck in it and had a little sign that said 40 Sucks. I thought that was really cute!

a bottle of 50 aspirin's for when she needs a "night off" from her husband
50 "cupid arrows" (or even construction paper hearts) to "hit" her husband with when she wants attention from him

A friend of mine turned 50 and she received a Blow Pop sucker tree (or you can use a vase with a ribbon tied) with 50 blow pop suckers and a sign that says 50 sucks. It was really cute.

When my aunt turned 50, we put together an "old lady kit" and gave her geritol, ben-gay, stool softener, tylenol for those aches and pains, Milk of Magnesia, ace bandages and other "old people" items. It was fun watching her pull them all out...she sat there and bawled while laughing.
