Retro Candy Gift Box with Tin Sign

This Retro Candy Gift Basket comes with an everlasting treat, too – a retro tin Candy sign.

If you’re looking for a unique gift for that special someone, a retro candy gift basket or gift box is the perfect solution. Unlike flowers and “edible” baskets, there’s no short-term spoilage.

Filled with penny candy and nostalgic treats, these gifts bring back memories. With yummies from the ’40s through the ’80s, who could resist a blast from the past that tastes so good?

Retro gifts aren’t just for those who grew up many years ago. Even today’s kids and young adults will appreciate the history; gummi bears aren’t anything new – they were actually first produced in 1922 – and Necco Wafers first hit candy jars in 1847!

Of course, those who grew up in simpler times will reminisce as they study packaging, shapes and flavors. They also might remember first tasting some of the candy as a result of paying a mere penny for a handful.

Perfect for birthdays, retirement, anniversaries and more, retro candy is also great for those serving overseas. Consider including a few classic toys, like a handful of parachuters to give service members some simple but fun playtime.

Retro candy boxes make great thank you gifts. They’re less expensive, ship well, and are chock full of treats that will last longer than perishable bouquets… okay, that depends on how much of a sweet tooth the recipient has…

And if you have trouble keeping your hands off retro sweets, these gifts can be shipped directly to the recipient along with a personal message. Of course, there’s no rule that says you can’t just get one for yourself!
