40th Birthday Ideas

Greetings from South Africa! My brother-in-law is turning the big 40 in December. They're throwing him a massive b/day bash with the "Naughty Fourties" theme. His brothers are planning on giving him gifts in line with the theme. What can I give that will be original and memorable? All ideas and assistance will be very welcome! Regards.

Make the invitations using pictures throughout his life. Collected empty Metamucil containers and filled with sand

and then had pink & turquoise ballons coming out as the centerpieces. Also put false teeth and other sillies around bottom of centerpiece. It is a lot of fun. Visited several of the local nursing homes to gather the empty containers. They were a lot of help.

Not so much a gift, but a cute card is to take a blank card, glue 4 tea bags in a row and label it "Happy 4 Tea Birthday".

we purchased empty pill bottles at the drug store. filled them with red hots. labeled them a 'virgira' claming that they would restore hair, make you slimmer, etc.

our daughter had a 'boob cake' made for her dad - it was a cake in a double hump decorated like a lacey bra. it got a good response.

drug stores and novelty shops usually have buttons with cute sayings, banners, etc. good luck . and have a great time at this once in a lifetime event for this gent!

Give your over-the-hill friend a paintbrush with a note to let them know it

is an over-the-hill makeup brush. If you're crafty, you could even paint it

on the handle or write it with a paint marker. - Heather
