50th Birthday Survival Kit

My boss was 50 last month and we couldn't decide what to get him at work. I've seen these survival kits before so thought it would be the perfect funny present! It didn't cost very much together and went down really well (luckily he has a good sense of humour).

Here's what was included along with the reasons why:

  • 50 pennies – contribution to retirement fund

  • glasses - for when your eyesight goes

  • duct tape - instant face lift

  • incontinence pads – incase of any accidents

  • memory mints – for those senior moments

  • blue pills – for increased sex drive

  • red tablets – to encourage hair regrowth

  • lollipops - for when life sucks

  • starburst candy - for an extra burst of energy

  • paperclips - to hold things together

  • mls of oil - to keep your joints lubricated

  • marbles - spares for when you lose your own

  • asprin - for those extra aches and pains

  • notepad – to write things down before you forget

  • first aid kit – for when you fall down

  • baby food – to help you adjust to softer foods

  • rubber bands - to give you your flexibility back

  • batteries – for your hearing aid and pacemaker

  • matchsticks – to help keep your eyes open


  1. WOW!! thats absolutely brilliant! I might just pinch your idea for our friends 60th in August if I may. I love all these ideas for these kind of kits. xx

  2. I love this idea and used it for my brother-in-law. I linked your post up to mine.

    Thank you,
