When my friend Lillian turned 50, we had a wonderful Spa Outing in her honor. That's the least a friend can do, right? ;-) I wanted to really let her know I put an effort into her gifts, so I customized the print on self-adhesive full sheet label paper. She seemed very impressed. Perhaps your friend will feel that way too. Inserting pictures of the birthday person on your labels, or pictures of the two of you together, would also be a delightful touch.
