Why not 50 Lottery Tickets, attached end to end (with minimal tape) to kind of "make a presentations" in a box?? What fun....

For his 50th birthday my brother thought the coolest gift ever was 50 50-cent pieces.

I did something like this once for a 50th anniversary. I bought 50 of those golden dollar coins (not real gold, but golden colored. I can't think of what they're called). I put them in a a decorative jar filled with golden colored sand and tied a golden ribbon on top. They liked it very much.

I received several gifts of $50. I put them all together to help buy myself a new laptop and printer which I love.

I've made "money" shirts before
all you need is some light cardboard and whatever amnt of money you wish to give, and then fold away-----make a standup collar, front shirt pocket and tie. Buttons I usually find pennies of the birth-year.

What about a collection of 50? A friend did this at a party I went to. She had 50 each of 50 different useful items. For example, 50 paperclips, 50 pennies, 50 bandaids, 50 hard candies...you get the idea.

I got my husband an AARP membership with an Over The Hill Card. But that is only for someone with a sense of humor. You can buy it online and print it out for him.
