There are birthdays and then there are those birthdays that just seem to hold more meaning than others and a persons 40th birthday is one of them. The only problem with special birthdays is coming up with special gifts but what do you give to the person who has everything they need? The answer is in nostalgic gifts like 40th birthday candy.

40th birthday candy might not seem like such a big deal but to the person who places more value in sentiment than anything else, it is everything. There are gift packages available online that come with candy that will take you back and it's all wrapped and ready to go. Anyone who enjoyed candy back in the day knows how candy has changed and it just isn't the same.

Finding some of the favorites such as Giant Taffy, Jujubes, Chuckles, Bubble Gum Cigars, Candy Cigarettes, and Razzles might have been difficult at one time but this is no longer the case. Finding gift baskets with these favorites included is as easy as a quick web search and placing an order. These nostalgic gifts are fantastic in that they are not only unique but are probably a gift that will bring back a few terrific memories for the birthday person.

The sites that sell these birthday candy packages have taken all of the work out of choosing. There are packages custom built for different age groups and decades. This helps to guarantee that the candy included in the gift package is candy that was enjoyed by the birthday person during their childhood. No work for you to do and all of the benefits of looking like you spent days putting it together.

But why candy you might ask? Well candy is something that we all enjoyed as children and there are always memories attached to certain candies that we enjoyed. It is a known fact that memories are triggered by senses and taste is one of our strongest senses. The flavor of candy has the potential of easily taking one back to the good old days of childhood. It is a gift that can give in ways that other gifts simply wouldn't be able to give in.

If you are searching for a gift with meaning or an absolutely unique gift, the birthday candy gift package is unbeatable. The pricing is very reasonable and your gift can be delivered conveniently to the recipient on that special day without a problem. 40th birthday candy is perfect for that milestone birthday and will be appreciated even more than you might realize.

Everyone loves delicious, tasty, and sweet candy these days. How can they not? Children, adults, you name it, everyone loves a delicious bowl of candy after a long day. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to come up with great candy gifts ideas. There is truly a type of candy for everyone and anyone. If they are looking for candy that is from their particular era, say the 70’s, there is candy from that era, candy they grew up eating every day and loving. When they take a bite of the candy, it will bring them back to that happy time in their life when they would hang out with their friends and enjoy some candy at the local candy shop. They even offer candy from the sixties, which can be put in an awesome basket. Who wouldn’t love to get a basket full of candy? It’s a thoughtful, outside the box idea that will make someone incredibly happy. It shows that thought and love was put behind this gift idea.

Just imagine how happy they will be when they open up their present and see tons of candy in it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and lasts for a long, long time. They can store it and keep it handy all year round, for football season, to give to their friends, or to keep it for themselves if they so choose. These days, it can be so hard to come up with creative and original gifts. That’s why candy gifts ideas are truly the way to go, especially with the variety of candy that is offered. This is not your typical store candy that just anyone can buy. That wouldn’t be special. This is candy that is hard to find. In fact, some of it is out of stock and hasn’t been in stores for years and years.

This is retro candy, which makes it even cooler as a gift idea. It’s not your typical run of the mill candy. What’s also tremendous about is that every piece of candy comes with a great memory attached to it. They are not just getting a piece of candy that will be eaten and forgotten about moments later. They are getting a memory, a positive moment, and something that will make them feel all warm and fuzzy inside. That’s not something that just any gift can do, that’s for sure. It takes a special, heartwarming, and thoughtful gift to do that. These gifts can be given for birthdays, especially ones that have a particular number attached to it, for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, you name it. They are a great gift for any occasion.

Next time someone is struggling to come up with that perfect gift, make sure they know about retro candy. It comes shipped directly to their house and is always in great shape and tastes even better. It’s the one gift that they won’t soon forget.

The 50th birthday gift basket has many favorite candies from the year 1963, but with a twist. The twist is that both the giver and the recipient will experience instant nostalgia, transporting them back to a time when life was filled with simple pleasures. The candy collection is a blend of rare oddities, some of which are no longer commercially available such as candy buttons on paper, Zotz Fizzy candy, wax lips, and candy lipstick.

The gift basket is a perfect unexpected gift for a surprise 50th birthday celebration, no more rushing around trying to locate something special. The 50th birthday gift basket is a convenient present, because it’s already beautifully wrapped. The only thing that will be more of a surprise is the number of smiles that will appear watching the gift basket being opened for the first time. There’s a place inside of our hearts that we reserve especially for fond memories, and that’s the appeal of this gift basket. It brings back the sweet memories of childhood; the candies represent a time of innocence, when every day was an adventure full of laughter, friends and dreams.

There’s enough candy to share in a party environment or for an out of state recipient to collect and store in a vintage jar. Everyone needs a gift basket like this when turning fifty. Because when it comes down to it, turning fifty is a milestone; it’s a wonderful birthday present for a person to open and suddenly realize that they’re allowed to cut loose and let their inner child run free.

Most importantly, the 50th gift basket is a combination of two things, a sense of whimsy, and a sense of history. It looks pricey, but the basket is reasonably price at $34.95, which makes it an affordable way to tell someone that you think that they’re special and deserving of a unique birthday gift.

There are no real themes for a fiftieth birthday party; most people feel that it’s best to keep things simple. You can throw a very special party without breaking the budget; the gift basket adds a simple but sweet touch to any celebration. The best gifts are ones that are about family and friends.  These candies are connected to the past but also have a modern touch for the younger generation. Most people at this age have kids and grandkids. There are candies that they can enjoy and recognize today, these include Smarties, Atomic Fireballs, Sugar Daddies, Lemonheads, and Red Hots.

For anyone looking for a great gift idea, this one is a rare treasure. Besides the nostalgic appeal, it is a nice to share memories with the younger generation, by telling stories connected to the individual candies. This gift basket is sure to become the conversation piece at the party. Included with purchase is a free cellophane baggie of individually wrapped candies, great to share with guests. Nobody wants to think about getting older each year, but with a gift like this, no one will mind.

Help your friends and family remember just how sweet life is by giving them unique candy gifts to celebrate your favorite milestones.


Of course we all want plenty of candy on our birthdays! And especially for those hitting their later milestones, remembering the candy of your youth is a great way to celebrate how far you've come. Seeing a pack of your favorite childhood candies wrapped up for your birthday is a great way to feel young again, and if you're a gift-giver, taking the time to track down candy that was popular back in the day--candy that is filled with fond memories of lazy summers and happy play-dates--is much more meaningful than a simple pack of cheap chocolate from the grocery store.

For someone hitting a milestone such as a 50th birthday, try tracking down a whole selection of favorite candies from the last five decades. You'll be helping your loved one celebrate a long, sweet life, and the promise of more to come!


If someone you love has just graduated, gotten married, won an award, or moved to a new home, unique candy gifts will help to sweeten the moment. If you need special gift ideas, look at the year you met your loved one, when they were born, or their favorite candy growing up. It's a great way to celebrate not only their accomplishment, but how happy you've been to know them and watch them grow.

For a wonderful housewarming present, see if their new address corresponds to a year, like 1986, and track down some fun candy from that year! Or build a gingerbread house and cover it with the new family's favorite treats.

For a new graduate, remind them to stay sweet as they move forward in life with some favorite retro candies from their adorable toddler years. If someone you love is celebrating an anniversary, try giving a gift basket of candies that were popular during the year they met, and help to celebrate the many years of joy they've had since.


Unique candy gifts aren't just a pack of candy: they're a celebration of a life well lived and a long, sweet friendship. Help your loved ones remember the best times of their lives with favorite treats, and celebrate the hope for many more years of love together!

It's easy to come up with excuses to give out candy as gifts, and the more you give, the more you'll be celebrating the lives and love of the most important people in your life. Hit all the important milestones together with joy, and maybe just a little bit of teasing. Most of all, enjoy, and remember: life is sweet!    /

Retro gifts for women are hot now-- from organizers to makeup to apparel, what was old is new again!

Many trends are picking up on the old-fashioned or vintage vibe right now. Walking through any store, the consumer will find items themed with two-tone polka dots, a direct nod to the polka dot craze of the 50's. The most popular colors right now are mint-green and chocolate brown (a delicious combination), and pastels like baby pink and cream. Notebooks, planners, and calendars are especially given to this trend.

Another popular retro item is the classic frilly apron. Once considered old-fashioned and dismissed in favor of classic white chef's aprons (or no apron at all), pretty aprons have made a strong comeback and are very trendy right now. Usually made of a bright, floral material (lightweight canvas is a popular choice), but occasionally in the aforementioned two-tone polka dot, these aprons are for sale at bookstores, gift shops, big-box stores, and boutiques. They are often decorated with grosgrain ribbon and sport decorative and/or useful pockets.

Pearls, cameo brooches and rings, and plastic-framed glasses have also come back to the accessory market strongly. A pretty twist on the classic pearl bracelet is the ribbon closure, usually made with satin ribbon and tied in a bow. The pearls are often strung on elastic for ease of wearing. Faux-pearls are more easily available and make more sense for this trend, which seems as popular with juniors as it is with adults. Today's cameos are more popular on black or onyx backgrounds than on the traditional pale pink or pale coral background. And of course, plastic-framed glasses and sunglasses are everywhere. Ranging from white to black to tortoise shell to floral print, plastic frames are huge. Some of the younger crowd adore the plain black "Dick Tracy" types, even going so far as to wear non-prescription frames just for the effect.

Hair and makeup is another area in which retro is the new style. Over the past few years, eyebrows have evolved from delicately understated to a more defined, strongly accented look reminiscent of mid century Hollywood starlets. Hairstyles are as varied as ever, but for special events from the red carpet to the Rotary club dinner, elegant and old-fashioned updos are de rigueur, often accented with vintage costume clips or velvet flowers; and while the smoky eye is still extremely popular, it is beginning to use more subtle neutrals and allow for a vibrant red lip color, not unlike the makeup trends of the 40's and 50's. Additionally, a simple, winged, "cat-eye" look with black kohl eyeliner is increasingly popular. And all of these makeup trends are complemented by actual makeup accessories in adorable retro designs, available at any drugstore or department store.

And of course, one can never go wrong with retro candy; those candies that baby boomers remember from their youth as “penny candy” are in demand and quite cool again.

Times change and trends come and go, but for now, retro gifts for women are the best of old and new.

50 is a big number in most people's lives and can even be scary for some. If someone you know is going to be turning 50 soon, why not lighten the load of turning half a century with some 50th birthday novelty gifts? Don't know where to start? Why not try some of these great ideas out for your older friend?

Celebrate a Different Year

The 50th year may be a heavy one to deal with, but that doesn't mean some of their younger years weren't to be enjoyed. Bake them a cake with a big "Happy 1968" written on it. They'll be sure to chuckle at the notion. If not a cake, even a toy or article of clothing from their younger years will bring a smile to their face. Your friend isn't turning 50, he's turning 25 again.

Be 50 and Proud

If there's one thing a good friend knows how to do it's definitely how to push your buttons, and now that your friend is getting up there in age, you have one more thing to tease them about. One novelty gift that will definitely do some good for their sense of humor are some novelty apparel. What separates their 50th birthday from the rest? The fact that they're wearing that number proudly across their face in the form of gigantic plastic glasses. They're not just turning 50, they're wearing 50.

Party Favors

Okay, so your friend is going to be enjoying himself, but what about the party guests? After all, the gifts are only half the battle for birthdays. Will your friend look out and see everybody with no unique party favors? Of course not! Some retro party favors will be the surefire way to get the party popping. Items like candy cigarettes, Zotz, Pixy Stix, and Boston Baked Beans should definitely do the trick.

No Fun For Fifty
Now what if your friend isn't much of a joker? Aren't there any 50th birthday novelty gifts that can suffice? Thankfully everyone has a sense of humor, you just have to know which angle to take. Instead of making fun of the big number try letting your friend hate it as much as they want to. A box full of lollipops with the big words "50 Sucks!" on it may just be the route to take.
