Here is an amazing birthday gift idea that come from the heart and not your pocketbook.
60 (or the birthday age) Postcards: Kalyn's Kitchen shared her best birthday present ever. Her sister and children surprised her with sixty postcards in the mail telling "Sixty Things We Love About Aunt Kalyn." You can also write "Sixty (or the birthday age) Memories We Have About _____".
The only cost associated with this is the price of stamps and cardstock for making your own postcards. You will be able to get 4 postcards (4.25 x 5.5) out of one sheet of cardstock.
For a friend or family member who lives close by, you can cut out the cost of stamps and deliver them yourself. If you don't want to mail or deliver the postcards one by one, put them in envelopes with numbers on each one. Then the birthday girl or boy chooses the appropriate number and opens one per day as a countdown to their birthday.
