Celebrate their milestone 60th Birthday in style with this Happy Birthday greeting, complete with lucky sixpence and all important birthday candle.
Open this unique '60 Happy Birthday' matchbox to reveal a genuine lucky sixpence (just like the good old days) and the cheeky message 'That's 42...plus inflation'. Lift up the insert to uncover 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 candle in the candle holder and light. Finally - the most important ritual for any birthday - blow out the candle and make a wish.
Take a trip down memory lane with the leaflet 'sixpence through the decades', also included in the leaflet. Reminisce about the good old days when when you could buy a cinema ticket for 6d or a bag of chips for 6d. Our list of what sixpence (in old money) could purchase in decades gone buy will bring back those wonderful memories of when tea was loose and a text message was a letter sent through the post.
This matchbox is a witty and original way to say Happy 60th Birthday.
