39 was so last year

This year our HOD, Zakariya Hoosain celebrated his 40th birthday. But his team was not sure what to buy him to celebrate this milestone.

His PA, Lesley-Anne Smith, came up with a fun and creative gift suggestion that got the entire team excited. During the next few days, his birthday gift was carefully planned and all items sourced to put the final touches (humour included) together.

So what was the gift?

  • Quirky signs related to 40 year birthdays
  • A huge coffee mug
  • Nuts and something sweet
  • Something to improve flexibility
  • Something to help keep everything together
  • Something that the HOD has already lost
  • Something to help the HOD find his way should he get lost
  • Something to help him should he fall and cannot get up by himself

Want to see what the HOD received?
