There are plenty of gag gifts for 50-year-olds that highlight the changes that come with ageing. Imagine the priceless look on the 50-year-old’s face when they receive such a gift. Just be sure to provide an actual gift that they can appreciate along with the gag gift to ease any hurt feelings.

Fake Lotto Ticket

A fake lotto ticket like the ones sold at Prank Place will have the gift recipient believing they finally struck it rich. Be sure to let them in on the joke before they start planning an early retirement. Don’t forget to get other partygoers in on the gag so the joke isn’t ruined.

Denture Cream

Have a laugh over a tube of denture cream. It can be found in stores near the toothpaste and other oral health care items. Take this gag gift for 50-year-olds up a notch by making it into a denture cleaning kit. Add a glass they can use to soak their dentures in.


A cane is a hilarious gag gift for 50 year-olds. An inflatable walker with tennis balls affixed to the bottom is also funny. You can buy both online at most gag stores. Attach a horn or a bell to the can so that people know to get out of the way when the 50-year-old walks by.

Adult Diapers

Buy a pack of adult diapers in the supermarket or shop for some online. This is one of the best ways to poke fun of the gift recipient on his 50th birthday. Giving adult diapers and incontinence products as a gag gift may offend some people, so gift with caution. The intent is to make them laugh, not to offend.

Senior Discount Merchandise

Get a sweater, T-shirt, mug or other senior citizen merchandise with a message proudly displaying the fact that the person is eligible for a senior discount. These gifts can be found in novelty shops and online, or you can make them at home. Use iron-on sheets to print out funny sayings about being a 50-year-old and transfer them onto a T-shirt.

Magnifying Glass

Does the gift recipient squint when trying to read a menu? Is she trying to avoid the fact that she is ageing and needs glasses? A magnifying glass would be a perfect gag gift. A basic one can be bought at an office supply store or dollar store. Find one that lights up or is pocket sized so she can put it to use while dining out.
