  1. i’m going to give this to my best friend for her 14th birthday. I always give her gag gifts and this is perfect! we’ll be laughing about this all summer!

  2. i like this alot…my mom is getting this one for x-mas..haha.. thanks for the great ideas!!

  3. I have prepared a similiar bag for dads with:
    a miniature crossword puzzle-let this be the only cross word you have today,
    a mint sweet- you and I were mint to be,
    worry beads but it will be ok at the end (last bead has letters “OK” printed on it.

  4. I agree … very rude.

  5. I’m planning a 50th birthday party for my DH in September. This is going to be the perfect gag gift.

  6. it’s gonna be funny giving it to a 40 yr old and below, but not to a 50 and above! Can I give it to my teenage friends?

  7. it seems a bit rude to me, I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable giving it to my grandparents
