Ah, the 1970s. The decade of rocking out to The Rolling Stones in our Dodge Colts, popping mouthfuls of Bubblicious gum, and scaring ourselves silly on our bean bag chairs watching The Exorcist. It’s hard to believe that those of who grew up in the 70s are “adults” today – it seems like just yesterday that we were lusting over 8 track tape players in our cars. Have a friend or family member who grew up the 70s? Chances are they have fond memories just like you do, so gift them 70s themed gifts, paired with 70s Candy favorites, such as Pop Rocks, Bubble Yum, Charms Blow Pops, and Ring Pops!
Rotating Disco Ball Light + Pop Rocks
Disco balls were all the rage during the 1970s, and whether you were old enough to hit the disco or not, you still admired those glittering disco balls. Choose a rotating disco ball that lights up, perfect for placing in a bedroom as a unique nightlight! Pair it with 70s Candy, like Pop Rocks, for a delicious explosion in your mouth.
Star Wars Alarm Clock + Gobstoppers
It seems like the Star Wars series will never end, and we certainly hope it doesn’t – that’s why we’re pairing it with “everlasting” 70s candy like Gobstoppers! We just love the look of Star Wars alarm clocks, but celebrate the decade that brought about Star Wars with just about any Star Wars collectible – and oh, there’s a ton out there!
Vintage Atari + Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
It makes total sense to us that one of the Atari models was named “Candy”, as we had as much fun playing it as we did eating 70s candy! Try searching eBay or other online stores for a vintage Atari console, and if it indeed works, purchase one or two games for it. Whether it works or not, it’s a really fun gift to give. Pair it with Jelly Belly Jelly Beans – so easy to pop in your mouth while you’re playing!
Polaroid Camera + Charms Blow Pops
The Polaroid camera as we know it came out in the 70s, and although it might be pretty pricey to find an original today, pick up the updated version and pair it with 70s candy like Charms Blow Pops. The recipient will absolutely love your gift idea, and it’ll be functional, as well – though you won’t have to shake it like a Polaroid picture anymore!
