LOVE this idea!!! ___________________________ "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!!

Sixty years of memories; send a message to family and friends and ask for a written memory of the birthday boy/girl, then put them in individual envelopes and seal them. Lovely to read through them, I'm sure. (Great idea for birthdays # 40, 50, 60, 70, etc...even anniversaries!) (Read the link, she explains it way better than me and even includes the note she sent out to family/friends.)

Saw this and loved it what a great idea! Send a postage paid postcard in an envelope with a letter asking everyone to write down their best memory with the person you want these mailed to. Then on their special occasion they get all these memories in the mail from friends and family galore. What a special gift to give that truly would be Priceless!

Birthday wish mad libs I made for my friend's birthday party this weekend. They were set out on each table along with the fans. Each one had a fun little story to fill out on top, then you got to fill out a short birthday wish and give a piece of advice for growing older. It was a small birthday surprise for my friend, but she loved them!

I made this for a friend who turned 40. My writing wasn't as pretty but I put "Turning 40 Sucks!" on the bucket, displayed 40 suckers in it (blow pops and tootsie pops), and added a little mylar balloon and garland to it to make it pretty. I would also like to add that ALL the materials were purchased at the Dollar Tree. Super inexpensive gift!
