List: Ten thoughtful gift ideas under $50 for your father's 50th birthday.

A 50th birthday is a BIG deal!  This milestone birthday is a time for celebration and to beware of the midlife crisis.  For my father's 50th birthday, we threw him a little party in our home with trays of homecooked food, bottles of high quality liquor, and lots of fun.  

Since we were throwing the party, we decided to skip a birthday gift this year.  We thought we were off the hook until everyone and their mother started asking us what to get The Viking for his 50th birthday.  That's when I decided to brainstorm.  See below for our top ten picks under $50 to surprise Dad with for his milestone 50th birthday!

  2. Do not blame yourself for being attracted to Nick Jonas. He like disappeared for a minute and then came back like a Greek God. I think we were all a little taken aback, lol. An dyes, the songs being 'oldies' is SO TRUE.

  6. I used to lose ten pounds in a week if I was super busy. Now I gain ten pounds in a minute. I'm 57. I think all the Jonases are pretty damn cute.

    Love,

  7. I don't find young men attractive anymore. I don't know what happened! But I'll see someone as "sexy" and realize he's, like, 50!!! Young men just look like someone's kid to me. That's all I see! I mean, I can acknowledge they're attractive, but it's in the same way I see a woman as beautiful--not in an "I'm attracted to this person" way...more like admiring a beautiful painting.

  8. Wait until being tired becomes a way of life. Yeah, you'll get there. ;)

  9. I you feel like a cougar, I don't know what I should think of myself :D But um.... why is he holding his sausage? Could it be he's afraid it might get stolen?

    Five pounds in one week... I don't remember ever having been able to pull that one off.

  10. That seems crazy to me that the Spice Girls are considered oldies. YIKES! I just turned 40, so I suppose I'm over the hill. I have lots of grey, and I refuse to dye my hair.
