That's what I did! I was from S FL and had several friends meet us at OKW for a big ole 50th!
Then a DCL cruise (no friends invited on that!)

I also requested no gifts and bless their hearts, not one gag gift (I think a couple did bring a gift though).

Nix the gag gift.

As for gag gifts.....many people dislike them but some do not. Only you know your friend. A slightly different idea is to get him 50 of something.....balloons, lottery tickets, bottles of beer......

Good luck with your choice!
I was just thinking the same thing. Great minds...... How about 50 of his favorite candies, nips. I loke the lottery tickets too.

I turned 50 at WDW last year. Also turned 47, 48, 49 and will turn 51 there next month. It really isn't my birthday unless I have breakfast with Donald Duck at Cape May Cafe!

Dh and I walked into our DSIL's 40th birthday carrying 40 helium balloons. She loved it!

When my next door neighbor turned fifty (it is a woman) her friends strung up a clothes line in her front yard with 50 old/used bras. The sign said, "Isn't it nifty Peggy is fifty lets all give her some support".

It made me laugh. Peg didn't care, she laughed too. The wind took a few and they lived in our respective trees a few weeks.

You could do the same for the guy with old jock straps---not sure where to get 50? or those support stockings old men wear.

OP here- thanks for some gag gift ideas. I know no gifts means no gifts. I am also turning 50 this year and have been friends with the birthday guy for over 25 years. We are NOT old- heck, we aren't even mature. We also have kids under 10 so we plan on being young at heart for quite a while.
I like the 50-item idea and will put jelly beans in a decorative jar for him. Thanks all.

I saw something cute on Pinterest awhile back. Although I don't agree with the actual statement, the gift was fun. It was 40 Tootsie Pops stuck in a decorated styrofoam block with a card on the front that said "40 sucks". I'm thinking of doing that for a friend who will be 50 this year as well.
