What a joy it can be to celebrate the milestone birthday years. Life can be busy and taxing on one's soul, so it is a wonderful idea to stop and take a break from the swift moving pace in order to mark the special occasion of a life well-lived. It is healthy to look back and appreciate the past, reviewing memories, both good and difficult. Whether the desire is for a fancy event or simple homemade fun, a fiftieth birthday can easily be planned.

For a dressed up event with a little playful fun thrown in guests can be invited out for a fussy dinner party that includes unexpected nostalgic 50th birthday party gifts. These little treasures can be contained within a fancy jar or laid out at each place setting. What fun the guests will experience as they don 50th birthday sunglasses while sipping glasses of expensive wine. A fun touch would be to hire a professional photographer to capture the wonderful moments of the birthday dinner celebration.

Another popular theme for a nostalgic birthday party involves guests dressing up like the hippies from past times of flower children and maxi-dresses. This is an easily arranged event as guests receive tie dyed paper invitations inviting them to partake in some groovy fun. Friends should be encouraged to find a time period outfit and show up ready for some wild fun of cooking out and dancing to era appropriate music. As guests arrive they can be offered peace sign buttons and strands of colorful beads.

If a fancy dinner party or a silly theme event are not desired, a dessert party might fit the bill. Hosts can plan to set out various dessert experiences for friends and family to enjoy. One station might be a chocolate fountain including all the amazing dippers, such as cut fruit, chunks of cake and pretzels. A milk and cookies bar is another popular idea. Whatever type of celebration is decided upon the birthday person should be pampered, honored and showered with plenty of nostalgic 50th birthday party gifts, kind words and wonderful new memories.

Show some love and take your birthday guy or gal back in time with any one of these great ideas!

As we get older, gift giving gets more difficult. It can be difficult to find unique gifts – ones that relate to the person and will bring a smile to their faces. But there is something you've probably never considered before. Give the gift of candy… retro candy!

There’s no better way to bring on nostalgia than to eat the candy of your youth. It could be Atomic Fireballs, Coconut Long Boys, and Saf-T-Pop from the 1950's or Bubble Tape, Candy Necklaces, or Nerds from the 1980's. Get the candy that was introduced or popular in the decade the person you are buying for was born and watch their face light up.

You can’t find much of the candy we grew up with on the market anymore. As we grow up, the sweet and sticky candies that were so yummy to us when we were kids are often put aside in favor of chocolate and other snacks. We may move on, but we never forget the taste of our favorite lollipop. Imagine the joy a 70-year-old might get when presented with the rock candy from their youth? Slip a pack of Now or Laters into a 40-year-old’s hand and watch them almost skip with excitement. Candy is the great equalizer.

Memories of summer and fun, friends, and playing are associated with foods and smells. It would be difficult to find an adult born in the 1970's who doesn’t remember eating Pop Rocks. But how many of them have eaten them recently? Giving retro candy will get them talking about the past and sharing stories you may never have heard before. You might learn about summer vacations with family whom you've never met, or hear about the first school dance while sucking on an Astro Pop. Give the gift of youth; retro candy will make them feel like a kid again.

So, as you do your Christmas shopping and fret over the right gift, consider sweets for the sweet on your Christmas List. Personalize Your Celebration Year - Retro Candy Gifts and see how much joy candy can bring to an adult.

The concept of a person being "over the hill” is one that has been around for many years. The meaning of the phrase implies that once a person is a certain age, he or she has reached the peak of his or her life. Once someone reaches the peak of a hill, that person will go over it and then begin to descend. The common “over the hill” age is 40, but some people do not start referencing it until ages 50 and older.

Some people do not accept aging very well, while others might embrace the occasion. Those who know someone who is approaching the over-the-hill age may want to buy that person a special gift to welcome the occasion. Over the hill birthday gifts might provide the perfect pick-me-up for a close friend, family member, boss or business associate.

Types of Over the Hill Birthday Gifts

A wide selection of gifts are available for a person who is entering the mature zone. A person who has an active sense of humor might enjoy a visor hat with a head full of gray hair. A person who is turning 40 years old might appreciate something that celebrates his or her year of birth by accenting it on a box filled with familiar nostalgic candies. Other types of gifts include buttons, glasses, teddy bears and more. Over-the-hill presents exist for people from age 40 and beyond.

Knowing how the Person Will Respond

Before purchasing this type of gift, the individual should gain insight on the recipient’s personality. Certain types of gifts for mature people could cause a birthday man or woman to become sad or sour. However, gifts that include candy are usually neutral. Therefore, a person could get away with sending this type of gift to a sensitive person. Candy has a way of changing the brain chemicals in a manner that invokes happiness.

Consumers can order special birthday gifts online and have them delivered to the birthday woman or man. Another option is having them delivered to the purchaser’s home, so that he or she can deliver them personally. Whatever the birthday occasion, have fun with your "over the hill" birthday. They'll love these wonderful gifts!

Metal lunch boxes and mugs come in a variety of shapes and designs. They compete with their plastic and cloth cousins, and they are often hard to find at typical retailers. Some people, however, still believe in them and insist that they are better than any other type of lunch box.

1. Versatility

The metal version of lunch boxes and mugs are often more versatile than any other type of box. They can be used to carry lunch whether it's hot or cold. Metal naturally holds heat or cold and will often be found in their plastic counterparts anyway. After the lunch box is no longer used for food, it can be used for storage. It packs away easily with others of its kind - it can stack in closets or storage areas quite compactly.

2. Style

The metal lunch boxes come in a variety of styles, as do the mugs. Since metal is easy to paint, an owner can purchase any design on the side of the box or mug. Metal boxes and mugs have been used for decades so they bear the markings of decades of hobbies and popular culture. Whether vintage or brand new, metal holds its picture and will match everyone's unique style.

3. Time Tested

As mentioned before, metal boxes and mugs will last for a very long time. This makes them timeless pieces to be used generation after generation. While plastic may crack and cloth may tear, metal barely shows the wounds of time and will be a constant companion for many years. Purchasing a metal box for lunch or mug for a drink is not only a one-time purchase; it is an investment which could last a lifetime.

Metal boxes and mugs for midday meals are timeless, versatile and stylish. It is smart and safe to have these on hand for everyday use or for safe storage. Every household should have one on hand for every member of the family.
