When my sweet sister friend Teresa turned 50 I decided to put together a 50th Birthday Survival Kit care package for her and mail it to her to open on her birthday. I wanted her to know how special she is to me and to give her a little fun mail at the same time. Because this was mailed through the USPS I had to be sure not to include liquids. Feel free to adapt this gift idea if you are going to see the birthday boy or girl in person.
I hope you enjoy this 50th Birthday Survival Kit Gift Idea. My friend Teresa really enjoyed it and it was a way for me to be apart of her special day even though I live far from her. You don’t have to spend a fortune to let your friends know you are thinking of them on special birthday celebrations!
50th Birthday Survival Kit Gift Idea
In the gift I included the following items:
Balloons: To start your day off with a bang!
Confetti: It is time to celebrate.
Candles: Blow them out and make a wish
Straw: Have a drink and celebrate
Starburst: To give you an extra burst of energy
Penny: For your retirement fund 🙂
Scentsy Circle: Because you are “scentational”
Note Pad: When your memory fails, to take notes
Colored Pencils: To color your future bright
Bookmark: No matter how far apart we are always close at heart
Gold: Chocolates – Because you are worth your weight in gold and every girl needs some chocolate on her birthday.
I hope this gift idea helps you if you are looking for a way to shower a family or friend with love of their 50th birthday. The true gesture here is not the gift but the thought. When my friend Teresa moved 10 hours away it could have been the end to our friendship however what we learned it is really just solidified how strong our bond is. Now we have to take the time to remain in each others lives and that takes a bit of planning. It is totally worth it though!
You can pick up many of these items at your local dollar store or big box store. I didn’t spend a fortune but let my friend know how much she means to me on her “golden birthday”. Hopefully this will help you with gift giving too! It is truly the thought that matters most.
