1950s Retro Gift Box – Baby Boomers will remember these candies from their childhood

Hometown Favorites 1950’s Nostalgic Candy Gift Box, Retro 50’s CandyMore Details

Here’s what customers on Amazon said about it:

“I bought this for my partner’s 60th birthday. Of course, she had fun seeing all this stuff again – though she said that some of it does not look familiar, probably because it wasn’t marketed in NY. We called it the box ‘o fun, we loved it so much.”

“I bought this for my Dad, a man who already has everything he needs. The gift basket gave him a trip down memory lane. His face lit up when he opened it. He went on to share with me stories of his childhood. It was a great moment and a perfect gift.”
