40 messages from 40 friends - a memory, a tribute, a birthday wish *You could do this for any # birthday, or adapt it for weddings, farewells.... even funerals (have people write down a memory of the loved one).

A beautiful birthday gift idea for the older adult! Ask every family member to write a memory of the birthday person and collect them to give at the party

A great idea for year end party! Have everyone write one at the beginning of the evening - What was your favorite memory this year and then share them at the close of the party.

Love this - for their dad's 70th birthday they mailed stamped/addressed postcards to 70 of his friends/family members and asked them to write their funniest memory of him. he received the postcards all month long. so simple, so wonderful.

"50 Memories for 50 Years" I "borrowed" this from a pin I found on Pinterest a few months ago. I did this for my husband's 50th birthday, recruiting MEMORIES from family, friends, former neighbor's, co-workers, former students and employees. My husband LOVED it. He told me this was the best gift he's ever received!!
