Jimi Hendrix Puzzle

In today's fast-paced society, where we have smart phones, iPods and other technological gadgets, it's sometimes easy to forget how some of the simplest and nostalgic things, in life bring back simple pleasures and smiles. Things from our past bring back fond memories of fun and slower paced times. They also make very unique gifts for milestone birthdays or props for mystery dinner parties.

Do you remember candy cigarettes, and how cool they were as a kid? You looked rough and tough with one of these candy coated sticks dangling out of your mouth. Candy cigarettes make a great gift when added to that 80th birthday gift package for your dad. Imagine your 80-year-old mom dangling a candy cigarette out of her mouth, as she mimics the actions of a military cigarette girl from the past. Or use these retro candies as an accessory for a murder mystery dinner party. It's the subtle small things that sometimes spark conversation.

Another blast from the past that brings back simple and fond memories is that big spud with removable eyes, ears, nose and glasses. Yes, we're talking about Mr. Potato head toys. This iconic Hasbro toy has aged a few years since most adults played with them as girls and boys. This funny face kit was the first toy to ever be advertised on TV. In 2012, it celebrates its 60th birthday. You can celebrate too by adding Mr. Potato head toys to your child's gift list or that adult who has everything.

Photos and children's drawings are often seen on refrigerators these days. Consider using a retro refrigerator magnet set to hold them in place. You can really stick anything you want on your refrigerator. Explore your sense of style. Be creative and have fun. How about hanging up those photos with album cover magnets? Your kids may ask who those album covers belong to. This gives you a chance to introduce them to music from the past. A refrigerator magnet set makes a great gift too. Give a special set to that crazy uncle who has everything under the sun.

Nostalgic gifts make giving fun. They bring back fond memories and show someone you care about them. They're also great for someone that someone who already has everything.
