Woo Hoo!! Wednesday

This post came about by a conversation I had with my bank teller.  I visit the same bank so they all know me and this week we got on the subject of birthday's.  Not sure how that came about. You know, one minute you're asking how are ya and then the next you're talking about babies, birthday's, vacation plans.  The bank teller was telling me that her sister's 50th is coming up and what she got her for a gift. I love this idea and it's totally a Woo Hoo!!

With her sister turning 50 and starting to sport some grey hairs, the bank teller decided to do a 50 Shades birthday themed gift.

She used grey wrapping paper and tied some Happy 50th Birthday ribbon in a shape of a tie on the box. Here's a tutorial I found on Good Housekeeping 

Inside the box she filled it with 50 grey things.  Everything from nails, to make-up to the book series.
What a fun birthday idea.


  1. That really is such a clever idea from the wrapping to the contents of the gift. Well done!

    1. Thank you for leaving a comment 1000scarves! I thought the idea was super cute too.

  3. What a great idea! If only that book would've been out around my 29th when my grey hairs started coming in!

    1. You could always file this idea away for when you turn 60. I'm sure your bound to have some hidden grey hairs by then :)
