Turning 40 gag gift

My sister will be turning 40 in December and I would like some help.

I want to get some personalized M&M's here My M&M's - Personalized Chocolate Candy Messages but I am not sure what to write. I will probably buy a couple different ones and would like your ideas. You can write on them here My M&M's - Custom Printed Chocolate Candy Messages

Please help!

Also, I need some other ideas! I have already had some free samples of Depends sent to her house and will have a walker that has been passed around in the family when someone hits a milestone.

Thanks for any ideas!!

I knew someone who had a "wake" for her husband when he turned 50.

I gave my mother a wake for her 40th. She died 16 years later and still hadn't forgiven me for it. Make sure your sister isn't sensitive about turning 40 or you could really hurt her feelings.

I recently gave a friend of ours 50 cans of beer when he turned 50 - I have also seen a money tree- 40 singles making up the leaves --

I'd take 45 cans of beer on my upcoming 45th birthday.

A friend of the family, guy, was turning 50, so they planned a backyard surprise party.
The huge pine tree was decorated with 25 bras they collected from everyone and it had a sign on it-"Celebrating Fifty Big Ones"

nachef, have you ever seen one of those fake lottery scratch offs? they're a little cruel, as the scratcher thinks they've won a bunch of dough, but the fine print on the back explains that they've been had.
