Fake Newspaper Clipping

30th birthday gag gifts newspaper clipping

Use our handy newspaper clipping 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:

I heard that you'll turn 30 this year
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!
