Celebrity Birthday: Melanie Griffith

Blabber birthday greetings go out to Melanie Griffith, who turns the big 5-0 today. If I were tight with Mel -- like in her Fave 5 tight -- here's what I'd get her for her birthday on my budget... She just loves plastics (see exhibit HB as in "Her Body"), so I'd get her 1 share of Tupperware stock (TUP). ($31.73) I loved Mrs. Banderas in Working Girl, which is one of my all-time favorite movies. So to inspire her to make good movies again, I'll get her one ride on the Staten Island ferry. (Free) Speaking of hubby Antonio Banderas, Mel always seems so jealous to me. Maybe it's the giant Antonio tattoo that shouts: Hey ladies: Stay away from my man! So for her birthday, she should have a leash to keep him on for one day. I saw some cute nautical ones at the Black Dog recently. ($22) And because celebs are their own biggest fans, I'd spring for eBay auction item number 170137291190 -- Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas Magazine Clippings. She can spend her whole birthday reading about... herself. ($4.29) Total: $58.02 But seriously... happy birthday, Mel! var addthis_pub = 'ivillage_blogs';
