Make a personalized poster to celebrate the momentous occasion of their 30th birthday!
Survival Kit 30th Birthday Gag Gift
Turning 30 can be very traumatic ;-) To help your friend cope in this difficult time, cheer them up by putting together a survival kit containing all the things they will soon need:
Survival Kit for Turning 30
Heavy Duty Makeup Brush (Paint brush)
Fan (for hot flashes)
Oil of Old Age (replace the label on a bottle of moisturizer cream with this printable "Oil of Old Age" label" )
Bald man's comb (get a regular comb and break off most of the teeth, except a few at either end)
Spare parts (put gummy teeth candies in a box labeled "Spare Parts")
Snore stoppers (put clothes pegs in a box labeled "snore stoppers")
Denture Wearer's Cookbook
Age spot remover (sandpaper)
Funny Newspaper Clipping
Use our handy newspaper generator to make a fake newspaper story about how your friend has turned 30 and is now officially "old".
It's a nice touch to print it out and put it inside their birthday card. You can include a little note which says something like:
"I almost forgot your birthday but then I saw this article in the paper that reminded me!"
"In Memory of Youth" Tombstone
Here's a slightly mean (but funny) 30th birthday gag gift. Use this online tombstone generator to create tombstone that says "In loving memory of (Name)'s Youth. 1981 - 2011" .
You could also go one step further and make an actual physical mini-tombstone out of a plank of wood, and put a little bit of fake grass on the bottom. Alternatively I think it would be fun to make one out of gingerbread and decorate it!
For a balding guy, an alternative tombstone message could be:
"In loving memory of (Name)'s Hair"
30th Birthday Gag Gift Poem
A silly poem to go along with your gag gift:
But don't be scared - there's nothing to fear!
Nothing, that is, but creaky joints...
...and an achy back, and a few other points...
Oh and wrinkly skin, and age spots too
But don't worry old man (or woman), we'll still love you!
