  • A friend had their 50th recently and we got him 50 m and m's , 50 aspirin , 50 toothpicks....etc. We put each 50 in its own box and then wrapped them in a big box.......it was fun to see how many 50's we could find at the dollar store.

    As far as the picture, why not scrap the picture in a cheap frame...you can even decorate the frame .

  • You could get a frame for it. Micheals craft store usually has some that are on sale and look nice. So does Walmart for that matter. You could also just get a really nice card and put the photo in it adn write something special in the card.

  • Walmart (spit on the name) usually has some fairly nice looking frames that aren't expensive.

  • Get a nice frame, you can find one for under 10 dollars at Target or Walmart. He will be surprised and I know he will like it. You could also check the Dollar Store for unusual frames. It's hit and miss there but sometimes I find some pretty good bargains and nice looking things.
