Celebrate their 70th Birthday and remember the good times with this Happy Birthday greeting, complete with a lucky sixpence and all important birthday candle.
Open this wonderful '70 Happy Birthday' matchbox to reveal a genuine lucky sixpence and the cheeky message 'That's 47...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 ages" 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 sent through the post.
This matchbox is a witty and original way to say Happy Birthday on this milestone birthday.
