Gag gifts for someone's 50th birthday party should play with the number 50 and make fun of the idea of getting old. This should be done in a lighthearted, not cruel or mocking, way. Options include a set of 50 rocks or lollipops, and a garden chime made with the metal numbers "5" and "0".
To make gag gifts for turning 50, there is no need to spend a lot of money. A witty idea is worth as much as an expensive gift. Before preparing the gift, it is important to consider the gender of the birthday person. For instance, a fan for dealing with hot flashes is suitable for women only.
