Surprise 50th Birthday Party

I am throwing a surprise 50th birthday party for my husband, who recently retired from the Air Force. The party is this coming weekend and I need ideas for party favors for the guests. I am really crafty, but I need "quick, inexpensive" ideas for the guests.

They will be mainly former military employee's of my husband. Help. I just want to have something for them to take home. My colors are black, white, and dark lime green. It's his first party, ever!

My idea is to have die cast model planes as a token or party favor. They cost around ten dollars each on this website, but they are Air Force models. Other sites I've checked run higher. Maybe they will ship next day for you if you're interested.

Does your husband's former unit or department (fill in correct term) have a saying that is preferably an "in" phrase or a joke that they all recognize. Go to your local small printer (may be called "offset" printing) and see what it would cost to get notepads made up with a slogan or shield or the unit's name. 5x8 is a good size, color maybe. This is the most inexpensive guy thing I can come up with. Good luck and have a wonderful time. (10/29/2009)
