As we grow old, the cliché says we develop a liking for slow living, as well as for the finer and more natural things in life. Gardening is, by and large, the kind of pastime one expects to see undertaken by people approaching the age of retirement. That’s why we’re including rakes, watering cans, and indoor gardening kits on our list of funny 50th birthday gift ideas. Alternatively, for those 50 year-old friends of yours whom you know already have a green thumb, you could purchase an ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ sign for their garden, like the one below.
2. DIY projects
Where to buy: DIY supplies
If you really want to be original and you feel that nothing is good or funny enough for the 50 year old gift receiver you care so much about, you can make the funny present all by yourself. From a vintage necklace made of 50 coins, to a bottle of anti-aging pills (containing candy or vitamins) and provided with your own funny label, from building a music box that plays “Forever young” or a hand-made photo frame with a collage of pictures capturing funny moments from that person’s life, the only obstacle in making the perfect gift is only your imagination.
