how about a gag gift??? get a roll of tpaper....cut a circle bigger than the tube...glue on some bday candles... set it on top of the tpaper... wrap the tpaper roll with cellophane or saran wrap ...add this poem...(I make the poem....center it....print it out on stock card....cut arnd it...punch 2 holes at the top...thread with yarn.....tie arnd the tpaper roll) ...sorry ..cant show a pic yet....

Happy Birthday

Money is scarce and times are hard,
So, I'm giving you this instead of a card.
Birthday cards are a bit of a farce,
But this will be handy for wiping your arse!

If he likes a certain sports team, get a jersey or tshirt of that teams and have "30" placed on the back along with his last name or some funny thing.  Then you can also do a surprise dinner for his friends and family and have everyone sign it in perminate marker.  (Yes, I did it and it worked great, espicially since the friends/family for dinner was a surprise.  But that part takes planning.)

that's really funny you should say that... he's single, likes pool and poker, owns his own home, has a golden retreiver named Daisy, used to date a Russian girl, and pretty much smokes pot and plays video games all night. LOL.  but i love the guy. Smiley

Trying to think of other things for oyu ...
there is a condom cake on the condom thread.
Maybe if you sew a few little zipper bags to keep stuff in his car, or dresser organised.
OR some CD or Movie storage, A duct tape wallet or cd holder
all i can think of now
