Over The Hill Birthday Sayings Candy And Toys
Getting presents for a loved one’s birthday can be a tedious task when they get older. Birthdays themselves may have become routine and dull after years of celebrating them. Over the Hill Birthday Gifts add a bit spice to what might otherwise be another ordinary celebration. Some people may prefer to insist they have not aged a day past twenty, others may pick a more meaningful number, and Over the Hill Birthday Gifts can obfuscate ones true age. Whether one turns forty or eighty, an Over the Hill gift is relevant and designed to make one feel celebrated and cherished, despite or because of one’s true age.

Over the Hill has birthday gifts celebrating the concept of being "over the hill." That one’s true age is irrelevant and what matters is celebrating friends and family. It is best summed up with, "there's no particular age that means you're over the hill, although usually it is a milestone year that ends in zero or five." You can give one to your grandmother, you can give one to an old friend, but either way it's a small token from you teasing them gently about being that extra special number this year.

Maybe a celebration would benefit from outright Over the Hill gag gifts. There is the ever popular Vulture Hat, teasing an older friend or relative about their age. Of note are various party buttons saying things like "got old?" or "In dog years, I'm dead!" Equally funny are the more practical hats with attached wigs which come in gray and blonde, either straight hair or afro. Perhaps the celebration would benefit from an Over the Hill Bald Man's Comb? Jokes aside; hats, glasses, quotes, and candy are all Over the Hill gag gifts that can make your celebration memorable.

Make your celebration an Over the Hill birthday party with one of the combo packs of Over the Hill sayings, candy and toys. A pack contains an assortment of toys and candy that give the party an air of recapturing their childhood all over again. Some of the retro candy one might get includes: Wax Lips, Rock Candy, Chiclets, Candy Cigarettes, Bonomo's Turkish Taffy, or Buttons on Paper. Some toys in the Birthday Box include childhood favorites such as: Silly Putty, Magic Loops, Slinky, and Wacky Whirler. Make your party and Over the Hill birthday party and people might enjoy themselves so much they forget just how old the birthday boy or girl turned.

In addition to eating these blast from the past goodies, nostalgic candy can be used to create centerpieces or set up as a dessert bar for retro-themed and vintage parties. For example, for a 70's disco themed party, choose candies that were popular in the 1970s like Pop Rocks or Razzles or for a 50's sock hop themed party, Snaps or Bit-O-Honey are a good choice. Candy can be crafted into centerpieces or simply spread on the tables for guests to enjoy during the party.

To create a retro candy dessert buffet, purchase candy in bulk and display it in small clear containers allowing guests to help themselves with an old fashioned candy scoop. Signs depicting the prices of the candy from the era can make cute decorations and enhance the candy shop feeling of the dessert bar. Nostalgic candy gifts can be given as favors for retro parties as well, either by allowing guests to take home candy from the dessert bar or having them pre-packaged ahead of time.

Nostalgic candy gifts make a great present for someone who is hard to shop for or for a person celebrating a milestone birthday year such as 30, 40 or 50. Simply look up what candies were popular in their birth year or when they were a child. Treat them to a trip down memory lane by purchasing candy they will remember from their childhood.

80th Birthday Gift Retro Nostalgic Candy

Although becoming more common, an 80th birthday is still a relatively rare occurrence and deserves that extra special touch, from the decorations to the cake, and the presents. However, when it comes to presents problems can arise; there is hardly anything to give an 80 year old that they do not have already. Once framed pictures of loved ones, gift cards and additional collectables have been given, what else is there that they would really enjoy. Between their reduced activity and a lifetime of acquiring what they want and need, finding 80th party gifts can be a real challenge.

One unique and affordable gift, that will bring a smile to any senior's face, is a gift box of nostalgic candy. This gift works on two levels. First, as we age our desire for sweets increase and by the time one reaches 80 years or more the desire to remain thin has subsided. Secondly, someone celebrating their 80th birthday or who is in their 80s spent their early childhood in the Great Depression, and they probably has few chances to enjoy their favorite candies when young. You can give them a second chance to relish the tastes they craved as a child. In all likelihood they may think those candies are gone for good.  They probably have not thought of them for years but will recognize and still enjoy them today.

Opening a window to the past and allowing them to experience the sweets tastes from long ago makes a gift that stands out from the rest, and unlike fruit, candy keeps a long time.  Many of the old-fashioned candies are individually wrapped pieces instead of bars, making them convenient when just a small something sweet is desired. They can take some of their birthday candy with them in a purse or pocket wherever they go. They can make an instant trip back to their childhood or share the journey with another senior who has a sweet tooth.
Gift baskets are available featuring some of the old time favorites such as Violets, Rock Candy, Good & Plenty and Chuckles. An alternative idea is to make a birthday basket of your own, including these and many other childhood favorite.  A homemade basket put together for an 80th birthday candy gift can include their more recent favorite sweets and other nostalgic items such as a Pages of Time Booklet. Best of all personalized 80th birthday candy gifts are not just a one shot deal they can be given every year with slight modifications to reflect the birthday boy or girls preferences. In addition, 80th party gifts of nostalgic candy are not limited to birthdays but work for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Christmas as well.
