100th birthday present

My great uncle is turning 100. My mom and I were thinking of sending him 100 of something, but what? We will need to ship the items as he is out of state. Any suggestions?

I couldn't put this request on Facebook because my uncle has a Facebook account Click here to enlarge

Can he eat a candy? Or you could send him 100 dollar bills.

Is it too late to have 100 people send him cards? That is what we did for my grandma's 100th.

I like the 100 dollar bills Click here to enlarge
of course, if he is canadian it will be very $$ since you would have to send him 100 loonies and those buggers are heavy

I think we will go with the 100 dollar bills. It will be the easiest for me. Love the letters or the news clippings, but that would have taken some time and I can barely get my laundry done Click here to enlarge

How big is your family? 100 pictures of his lifetime and loved ones? What an amazing gift to have such a long life. Click here to enlarge

100 flowers (delivered by a local florist).

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

It is. He is the last one standing of his 11 siblings. Most lived into their 80s and 90s. He still posts on Facebook, gardens, rides a bicycle. He's great.

MIL sent BIL 40 $1 bills for his 40th. But wadded them all up so he had to unfold them all. Don't do that. LOL
