Birthday Gag Gift: In Memory of Ones Youth Tombstone
(Kelowna, BC, Canada)
I have made two of these gifts....one for a 40th birthday and one for a 50th birthday. You simply take a piece of wood and have the top cut or sanded into a curve the same as a headstone. You paint it all black and buy white stick on letters from the stationary store. You simply stick them on with the following message:
In Loving Memory
(use their name)
1961 - 2011
(their year of birth and current year)
Stick some fake plastic grass around the base of it, attach some kind of stake to it so that they may place it in there garden.
I have had nothing but good comments on this gag gift. Hopefully others care share this idea!
