Gag Gifts for Over 50
Give a silly over-the-hill gag gift for an over-50 birthday (oap image by from

An over 50 birthday is generally when friends and family will begin to tease a birthday honoree about being "over the hill." Gag gifts will generally be focused around this theme. The good-natured ribbing will generally get a chuckle from the gift giver and receiver. Keep the recipient in mind when choosing a gag gift to ensure it is well received.


Gift the over 50 birthday honoree with a large fake tombstone for a gag gift that will surely get a chuckle. This is a great way to share the humour of ageing and remind your loved one to celebrate life.


A funny gag gift for a birthday boy with a sweet tooth is a large lollipop. Include a note with the sucker that says: "50 Sucks!". It's a comical way to gift a sweet, nostalgic treat.

Over-sized Remote

One of the complaints of getting older is the need for glasses and the steady decline in eyesight. Gift someone over 50 with a huge oversized remote so they can read the buttons without a magnifying glass. This will make a humorous gift, but you might be surprised how practical it will also be!

Wheelchair or Cane

A goofy gift for a over 50 birthday is the tongue-in-cheek gift of a cane, walker, or wheelchair. Be sure to decorate the gift with over-the-hill streamers and a squeeze horn.

Grim Reaper Statue

Remind the birthday girl of the passing years with a statue or poster of the grim reaper. Use this gift as a fun way to remind the honoree to enjoy the years that she has left.

Old Age Kit

Create an "old age kit" that will get a laugh, but will most likely also come to be used! Use a bedpan as a basket. Fill it with haemorrhoid cream, Ben-gay, denture polish, adult diapers, and some reading glasses. Wrap with a big bow and a label that reads: "Old Age Kit"
