Presenting Our Top Ten+ List of 50th Birthday Gag Gifts

  • Put a photo of the birthday guy or gal on a magazine cover —could be Time, AARP, Sports Illustrated or you can make up a funny magazine name.

    A fake magazine cover is a fun 50th birthday gag gift.

    Photoshop this yourself or check out a site that offers this service, such as,, and Make up funny headlines and blurbs about the half-centurian too. For a more sentimental gift, write text highlighting your friend's fabulousness.
  • Write your friend a fake obituary. Misspell his/her name, list all of the things he/she will never do, describe the perfect family and then add "Oh, that's my family," mention that he/she didn't look a day over 60
  • Make a really big AARP membership card and wrap it up beautifully
  • Find that really embarrassing photo, blow it up and frame it
  • Take that embarrassing photo (how about a high school yearbook picture?) and turn it into a roll of (real) photo stamps
  • Wrap up a clear bathroom glass, a box of Efferdent and some fake teeth
  • Find a pretty pouch or drawstring bag and place a comb with no teeth inside (perfect for that balding friend with a healthy sense of humor)
  • Tell the guest of honor you bought him/her a bathing suit for his/her big 50th birthday trip and present them with a gift of Depends
  • Wrap up a pair of big, old people clip-on sunglasses in a really nice eyeglasses case for that same big trip
  • Ask a guest who couldn't make it to the birthday party to tape record or videotape a message to the birthday guy or gal and have him/her scream it, a la Garrett Morris on Saturday Night Live (oh boy, now we're really dating ourselves)
  • Fill one of those huge empty water cooler bottles with $10 worth of quarters and tape a sign to it that says "Retirement Fund"
  • Buy a large bottle of prune juice and two pretty champagne or wine glasses and gift wrap them beautifully
  • Make custom tattoos by printing a photo of the birthday guy or gal on tattoo paper using a laser printer
  • Buy a Viagra switchplate cover for that special birthday boy (these really are pretty darn funny up on a wall; you can find them online)


And if you don't have the time or inclination for a DIY gift, how about one of these for a cute, clever and easy 50th gag?
