Have a girlfriend turning 50? Need a gift to give her? 
Here's a fun idea to celebrate 50 years with 50 affirmations of who God says she is.
Now this is the way to celebrate a big birthday!
(You could also make this work for a friend with a 20th, 25th, 30th or even a 40th birthday. Keep reading to see how.)

We all need to be reminded of the scripture truths of who God says we are...especially when we turn a year older! The Bible is filled with so many affirmations that reveal God's amazing love for us. These are not because of who we are, but because of WHOSE we are. We are His.
We are His creation...created in His image, for a plan and a purpose and for His glory.
When we know and believe these things, we can live with confidence and assurance that we are greatly loved no matter what! No matter what mistakes we've done, choices we've made or issues we're dealing with...WE ARE LOVED! No matter how we feel or how old we are-- we are deeply loved by God. 
What better time to remind a friend of this---than on a milestone birthday!
Here's how I put this together. 

50 Affirmations of Who God Says I Am

I found a sweet faux floral arrangement at Home Goods that had a foam base in it. The foam base inside the pot allows sticks and skewers to be easily placed into it. Be sure to double check your arrangement and make sure it isn't a solid acrylic block that won't let you add sticks into it. Your arrangement can be any color, but I chose a white one for my friend.

Use 50 paper cookie sticks, wooden skewers or plastic treat sticks.
Use the 6", 8" or 12" sticks depending on how tall your arrangement is.
Use 1 longer stick or skewer for the 50 sign (or another milestone #) to place in the middle of the arrangement.

Use a piece of tape to stick each affirmations to the sticks.
Tie on a small piece of ribbon in a simple knot. I found my ribbon at the DollarTree.

Now the fun part...start sticking the affirmation sticks in the floral arrangement-- place them all the way around. Be sure to place the 50 card high above the arrangement in the center.

I gave my friend this gift for her birthday and told her to put the affirmation sticks in a jar (or around her home) after she reads each one. That way she can enjoy the flower arrangement and continue to enjoy reading the affirmation sticks.

Thankful Tree-Themed Cards and Tags

Ah, November. The month of gratitude and thankfulness. How can you not love this month?

There is something amazing about saying 'thank you' to someone that actually makes YOU (the giver of the 'thank you') feel so good. That's the power of gratitude. When we give thanks, we take our eyes off ourselves and place it on others. And when we move our thoughts off of ourselves, good things happen. We have a new mindset, a healthy attitude and a selfless heart that brings joy no matter what our circumstances.

I love to tell people thank you and if I can tell them thanks with a cute little card and treat...even better! Check out these printable thank you tags you can use all season long.
Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter and Christmas.

Thankful Tree-Themed Cards and Tags

I love these Reeses's chocolate peanut butter trees candies. Have you seen them in your stores? If not, (affiliate link) click here. These candy trees work perfectly with any of the tags. Just tape a small size onto the back of each tag and hand out to those you want to say 'thanks' to.

You could also use these tags with other candy or chocolates that have a tree printed on the packaging. Look how fun this Andes Mint chocolate bar looks with the Christmas thankful tag. Hole punch tag and tie on with a coordinating ribbon.

These also work well with gifts with leaves printed on them. This is my current favorite smelling hand soap this year from Bath & Body Works....White Coconut Caramel! Oh wow!

Another fun idea is to use this tag on a mini Christmas tree or plant. Hole punch the tag and tie with ribbon directly on the tree. What a fun and festive gift!
