Happy 50th Birthday Greeting In A Matchbox

Celebrate this milestone birthday and remember the good times with this Happy Birthday greeting, complete with a lucky sixpence and an obligatory birthday candle.

Open this unique '50 Happy Birthday' matchbox to reveal a genuine lucky sixpence and the cheeky message 'That's 21...plus inflation'. Included is the essential item no birthday can do without - a birthday candle. For, quite literally, the icing on the cake, turn the matchbox over, place the birthday candle in the candle holder and light. And finally - the most important ritual of any birthday – blow out the candle and make a wish.

Take a trip down memory lane with the card “sixpence through the decades”, also included in the matchbox. Reminisce about the good old days when you could buy a packet of custard powder or a Mars Bar all for 6d. Our list of what sixpence (in old money) could purchase in decades gone by will bring back those wonderful memories when tea was loose and a text message was a letter in an envelope with a postage stamp.

This matchbox is a witty and original way to say Happy Birthday on this milestone birthday.
