Turning 60 should not be a dour affair for anyone; that is why it is important to infuse the celebration with joviality and humour through gag gifts. The birthday boy can be reminded about the positive and healing properties of laughter, and can enjoy the beginning of his new decade in style. Giving a gag gift for his 60th birthday can show that you care enough about them to joke around.
The way the world of technology has progressed may make any 60-year-old male feel a little outdated, so give him some form that he can understand. Gag gifts include a cell phone that is more familiar to him, like two tin cans tied together with a string, or an abacus for a computer. Also, to make light of his advancing years, you could give him a Med Alert bracelet from the famed "I've fallen, and I can't get up" medical emergency services.
Fake Photo Album
This gift allows you to rewrite world history, placing the birthday boy at the scene of historic events. Using a photo editing software, or even just cutting old pictures and pasting them to other more famous ones, place the guest of honour at major events that have happen during his lifetime. Place him at a Vietnam protest rally and the falling of the Berlin Wall. Use pictures of him from the same age, or use current ones to add to the humour of the gift.
Old Man Kit
Make light of his advancing age by giving him a kit to help him with ageing. If the birthday boy is in good shape, give him a walker or a motorised cart for irony. Also, include in the kit a pair of false teeth and some baby food for when he gets older. To help him in the eventual management of his estate, include a fake will that only needs his signature, and also a fake order from the court to commit him to an institution.
