Favourite Hobbies

Create a homemade card for your uncle based on his favourite hobbies. If he loves to sail, try making a card in the shape of a sailboat or create a card featuring images of sailboats and other nautical touches, such as pieces of seaweed or dune grass. Uncles that play recreational or professional sports will enjoy a sports-themed card, such as a card shaped like a baseball, football or basketball, sports jerseys or sports equipment.


Create cards that focus on the age your uncle is turning. Milestone birthdays, such as 30, 40 and 50, can be celebrated by tracing and cutting large bubble numbers on card stock --- attach numbers together with hole punches and pieces of string. Make a funny card of your own by writing something witty about his age or noting amusing anecdotes from his younger days. Clipping various sayings about age from magazines, books and online resources and pasting them together in a handmade card is another option.


Create a collage card for your uncle filled with family photos, such as pictures from family vacations, barbecues, graduations, birthdays, holidays and other special events. Include as many photos of just you and your uncle as you can, or write funny captions to go along with each photo. Collage cards do not have to involve photos only --- create a card using images and memorabilia from your uncle's life, such as pieces of pendants and ticket stubs from high school and college sporting events, logos from past and current careers, images of favourite pets and photos from assorted vacations.

Favourite Music and Movies

Make a card based off of one or more of his favourite bands, musicians or movies. Use the card stock covers from his favourite DVDs, such as the "Harry Potter" films or various action movies to make cards. Cut out all ISBN numbers and unnecessary wording and write birthday wishes on the inside of the card along with any other related images you would like to include. Make a card that is a small cutout of his favourite band or singer, such as an Elvis or Beatles-shaped card.
