How about 50 Baseball cards? I looked on eBay and many are low priced.

Good morning, all!

I am in the process of planning a 50th birthday party for my wonderful hubby. It's still months away, but I'm working on ideas - never too soon to plan a party in my book!

One of the things I did for my sis a few years back when she turned 50 was to give her 50 of 50 different items. Such as 50 pennies, 50 paperclips, 50 flower bulbs...you get the idea. Well the gift was a HUGE hit! She loved it and everyone had a fun time watching as she discovered what all was in the box.

I'd like to repeat that for hubby, but men are much more difficult to buy for. For my sis, I could include items for craft projects or things for her classroom - which made it a cinch to come up with ideas. For hubby, not so much. There are some things that will work for either men or women, such as the pennies and paperclips, so I've already included those on my list. DH works in a school office, so there are some things I can do with that in mind, and some things that relate to his two main hobbies which are drumming and baseball.

So...I'm asking for your creative ideas. What can I include in a 50/50 gift? I'm open to just about anything. Even if you think it sounds weird, it could be something that would be perfect!

Ready? Fire away!!

Thought of you today, Randamax. In the lobby of my fitness center today they were having a baseball card show.

Oh how fun! DH and I both would have enjoyed that. Thanks for thinking of me.
