Things change every decade. As children, we all have our memories of what once was. Candy is no exception. So many memories and emotions can be tied to the candy of our childhood. So what better way to surprise a loved one than a basket of candy tailored to their decade? With birthday candy baskets, this is the perfect answer to any gifting need.

The first step is to do the research. There are many different ways to create a birthday candy basket. You can make it yourself or find a service that makes one for you. There are many candies that go with each decade, and some carry over into multiple ones. Here are just a few examples:

     1950's- Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy, candy cigarettes, Red Hots, candy buttons and Necco wafers.

     1960's- Smarties, Dots, Jujubes, candy necklaces, Pixie Stix, wax lips and Pop Rocks.

     1970's- Slapstick, Fun Dip, and Jolly Ranchers.

     1980's- Tootsie Pop, Jolly Rancher, Ring Pop, Nerds, Swedish Fish, and Bubble Tape.

There are many more, just look it up and make a list.

Additionally, you may want to consider a few things before making the actual basket. When were they children? If they were born in 1969, you may want to focus on candy of the 70's. However, you may want to do more than one decade, tying their birth year into the decade when they were a child. Talk to other family and friends to find out what their favorite candies were as kids and let that can be the focal point for your birthday candy baskets. Whatever way you choose to go, tailor your basket to that goal, and add some flare to it, as well.

Just placing candy in the basket and slapping a bow on it is probably not the best you can do. There are so many ways to decorate the basket and make it even more special. Add some decorations themed in the decade or year of their birth. Find photos, symbols, and other trinkets that can add to this special blast from the past. What is their favorite color? What are their interests? Incorporate that, as well. Personalize this as much as possible to give them the most out of the memories. Think about adding a mix CD with music from their teen years, or a DVD of a movie popular in that era. As always, add a personal and heartfelt card to bring the whole thing together into one beautiful display.

Candy is a foolproof gift idea. Everyone has at least one candy they loved and many happy memories that can be tied to it. Just the scent of a candy that the birthday person loved as a child can unlock memories they haven't thought about for a long time. Be creative with the gift and really put some thought into it. This is already such a unique way to show someone you care, so make it as special as possible.
