A friend of mine is turning 40 in a few weeks, and he is being given a surprise "over-the-hill" party. I am seeking ideas for a gag gift (or gift collection) for the occasion. Things like Metamucil and Geritol have become cliche, so I'm looking for something creative/clever/unique.

Any ideas? What have you seen? I tried Google searches, but mostly what came up were sites trying to sell the typical stuff.

You absolutely need to find some little blue pills. :)

Here was the hit list at my 40th. A cake with a black tombstone as a candle. A bottle of "Horny Goat Weed", (don't ask me, some type of herbal thing supposed to be the natural little blue pill?). The obligitory black balloon's everywhere. A cane with bicycle horn and rear view mirror (My personal Favorite). A "Clapper", and a hair brush with no bristles.

How about a gift certificate to MCL cafeteria? And maybe a brochure for some kind of lift chair?

Or cane tips? Or those plastic coin purses?

I agree with Red Leader. Depends are the way to go.

Black dress socks and white tennis shoes, or loafers are always effective when you give them together as well.

Bi-Focals, you can buy cheap ones at Wal-Mart (of course).

You can send away for literature for a motorized scooter at a site like this:

...and to answer any questions, my Dad turns 60 next year.

I've already started preparing, as you can see. :lol:

Can you find any brochures for a retirement home?

:eek: Wow! That's harsh. I thought just having one of those was mean, but that's a lot worse than anything I've heard of :laugh:
