Gifts for a Particular Year

Gift giving never has to be a challenge… instead think of it as a creative endeavor. Would a special person on your list appreciate a gift that shares some interesting history about the birth year, or the year you met, or another significant time in their lives? For instance an old magazine from their birthdate or birth year will most certainly create conversation as folks share stories that they remember.

Another unique item can be music from a given year. This, too, can bring a flurry of conversation… and quite often, dancing! And yes, we have record players if you need one!

Looking for a collectible plate with a certain year,

… or a toy from a particular era, or maybe a toy related to a tv show of years gone by are a few more ways a collectible can make a perfect gift. We highly recommend that if you give a collectible item to a younger person, encourage them to find the tv show, commercial, or other piece of info about the item by searching on the internet. That bridges the generations and also brings a collectible to life!

We have old board games,

…license plates, sports items including collectible cards, models and hot wheel cars, Angels of the Year figures, Barbie Dolls, and even World’s Fair memorabilia. So come on, put you’re thinking cap on and start remembering those ‘good ole days’ … because you just might find a gift that will not just be a box to unwrap, but will become the ‘life of the party’ as you all share memories – we consider this the perfect gift.
