Anyone born in 1974 will be turning 40 years old this year. Turning 40 has long been a dreaded age. Forty was once considered to be middle-age, assuming you expect (or hope) to live to be 80. Just think of all the changes, both good and bad, that have occurred over the last 40 years. Most modern music doesn’t sound like the music of the 70’s. Fashions, hair color and what about piercings? Anyone born in 1974 is probably not considering a belly-button ring, or even a tongue piercing, which is so common in 2014. On the other hand, there might be some forty-year-olds, in an attempt to stay young, that are coloring their hair with streaks of pink or blue as is the trend in 2014.

Fashion in 1974 was one of a kind. Bell bottom slacks and platform shoes were in style. The flared pants were popular with both men and women. The style was that they were frequently worn around the hips, below the waist, and were usually very tight fitting. The slacks got the name bell bottoms because the flare started at the knee and had the look of a bell as it got larger going down the lower leg to the ankle. This style was carried over from the late 60’s hippy trend.

Whatever the person turning 40 thinks about being a little older, anyone would enjoy a 1974 Hippies - 40th Birthday Gift. Reviews from people who have sent these gifts indicate they are quite appreciated and enjoyed by anyone turning 40. They are fun to send and even more fun to receive. There are many types of 1974 Hippies - 40th Birthday Gifts to choose from, a range of prices, and a variety of candies and toys remembered from that beloved year. They are also hand-packed in some version of a gift box that either indicates the year or the age of the birthday person. Face it 40-year-olds – you have hit that golden age you once thought was “old”, so why not enjoy it!

It can be hard to find a gift that is just right for someone who is turning 70. The ideal gift would be unique, and it would make the recipient feel young again rather than point out that another year has passed. Gift boxes of retro candy are just that kind of gift.

Boxes of retro candy are perfect to give as a gift, use as party favors, or send to those turning 70 this year. When given to anyone born in 1944, it immediately brings back a flood of memories. They are once again that little boy or girl peering into the candy case at the local soda shop or drug store. These gift boxes are filled with all their favorites from days gone by. This includes hits such as:

• Juicyfruit

• Bonomo Turkish Taffy
• Chiclets
• Giant Taffy

• Candy necklace
• Atomic Fireballs
• Neco Wafers

Sending one of these retro boxes to someone on their 70th birthday will be like delivering a smile to their door step. They will be thrilled to go through all the flavors they remember enjoying with their best friends.

Including any of the retro boxes from the Unique Gifts 70th Birthday Celebrate 1944 Nostalgic Candy selections in a birthday party will add instant fun. Those tuning 70 will reminisce over the good times these candies will bring to mind, while the younger crowd will love the retro feel (and the stories!).

One can choose from a variety of gift boxes. The Retro Candy Gifts for 70th Birthday Junior has 30 types of candy in it. All candy is shrink-wrapped in a decorative box that is ready for gift giving. The 70th Birthday Gift Celebration Box of Retro Candy includes 40 different flavors, and it also comes in a decorated box that’s perfect for giving or displaying at the party.

The 70th Birthday Party Favor Retro Nostalgic Candy comes in a smaller box entitled “Candy Memories from the 40’s.” When used as a party favor, it’s a great way to allow guests to take that “walk down memory lane” home with them. One thing's for sure, a good time is to be had by all!

A Milestone birthday can be celebrated in simple and unique ways. Here are some 50th Birthday Ideas to Gift and Celebrate 1964 born boys and girls.

Generic 50th birthday invitations and party-ware are easily found in big box stores. Focus your attention on bringing 1964 to life with the music and popular themes of the year.

The British Invasion began in 1964 when the Beatles appeared on the "Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964. Music from 1964 is fun for all ages and easy to dance to. Play a selection that includes the Beatles, Beach Boys, Supremes, and Elvis Presley. Don't forget "The Girl From Ipanema", Grammy's Record of the Year in 1964.

G. I. Joe was introduced that year and sitting amidst Barbie and Troll dolls (also introduced in 1964) would make a nostalgic and fun table decoration. Also, look for toy Mustangs, Ford Galaxie and Thunderbird cars and muscle cars like the Pontiac GTO, all popular 50 years ago.

If a special theme is chosen, try a tropical island as in "Gilligan's Island" or a haunted house like "The Addams Family" or "The Munsters" all of which debuted in 1964. Serve standard party finger foods and throw in a few theme foods like pineapple skewers or gummy worms.

Retro candy and foods are a great way to fire up childhood memories. Many stores and online companies still sell the candy we grew up with including candy necklaces, cigarettes, Zotz, Sixlets (now gluten free!), Chuckles and Nik-L-Nip. Ritz crackers, American cheese, Vienna sausages and Bugles are nostalgic. If serving more hearty fare try macaroni and cheese with cut-up hot dogs, iceberg wedge salad, or Swedish meatballs.

These 50th Birthday Party Ideas will help you to celebrate 1964 with your party guests and honoree. You might even seek their help as half the fun in a party is in the planning! Reminders of a simpler time in their life will surely bring lots of birthday smiles.
