My dad is turning 70 this year and I wanted to do something fun!
I got my inspiration from Creative “Try” Als and added some of my own funny gifts.
Being that my dad has the best sense of humor than anyone I know, I knew he’d love it! I tied on a baby picture with a message that said. “70 years ago…on what otherwise might have been just an ordinary day THE WORLD GOT YOU!”
I got a basket and filled it with all kinds of “senior” goodies, but ones he’d be able to use in his daily life.
Some of the items I put in the basket were:
Pill Organizer- Even the days of the week say “WTF”. So can you.
Worcestershire Sauce – “What’s this here sauce?”. Don’t worry no one else knows how to pronounce it either.
Popcorn – Welcome to the next stage of your life. Play your part well!
Olive Oil – Oil of Old Age
Magic Sizing (or Starch) – Wrinkle Remover – For when the iron isn’t enough
Batteries – To help keep you going and going
Tissues – For when happy memories sneak out of your eyes
Socks – Sit back and kick your feet up. Relax! You deserve it.
Lollipops – Because getting old sucks
Hemorrhoid Cream – Getting old is a pain in the ass
Antacid – Laughter is the best medicine. But, when that doesn’t work, go to the medicine cabinet
Deck of Cards – You’ll still have a full deck. You just may shuffle slower.
Get a nice clear bag or shrink wrap and voila!
