My husband and I don’t do fancy gifts for each other much. But it’s fun to have sooooomething to open on a holiday or birthday. And I’ve been thinking about this one for a while, and fiiinally made it.
Laughter really IS the best medicine. This post, for example…. an excellent “reset” button for your day. And my husband is a pretty serious guy when it comes to work and responsibilities. If I can give him a good laugh here and there (although it’s usually when I’m not even trying) then I feel like I’m doing my job.
To give a bit of Laughter, the Best Medicine, all you need is:
- a clean, empty, largish medicine bottle
- a printer and word processing program
- clear packaging tape
- jokes and photos that will crack your recipient up
Make a label that fits your bottle. Use recipient’s name, your prescription for them, add a pharmacy icon, directions for use, contact info for the prescriber, etc. Print, trim and apply. Add “caution” labels, found here.
Print tiny photos and jokes that relate. For my husband, some school-related, some sports-related, some Onion, some location-related. Photos of our silly family and of grafitti we saw in Ireland that cracked us both up: “Scott R. has no willy.” Bahahahaha. Print at 2 x 2 or 2 x 3 ish. Reader’s Digest sizes are good too, if you have some of those around you want to cut up.
Fold or roll up and tape or glue an edge. Cut rounded corners if you like.
Fill the bottle. Give with joy. Hope for laughter. And hope your husband doesn’t have time to read your blog before tomorrow morning.
