Gift Ideas


It’s not always easy buying gifts for family and friends. In a materialistic world, what do you buy the person that has everything? Gift giving is important to both the recipient and the giver. Why? It has a positive effect on your mental wellbeing, lifting spirits and reinforcing bonds. Therefore, we are all very keen to make sure we make the right choices when selecting gifts.


Here, at Sweet and Nostalgic, we think we have the solution. Stimulating feelings of nostalgia, has been proven to be great for health and well-being. So, giving a gift that is nostalgic, will have a massive positive effect on the person receiving it. We established our business from humble beginnings in 2008. Over the years, we have expanded our gift ranges to incorporate the whole of the 20th Century. From the end of the Victorian era – right up to the 1990’s.


We have a wonderful array of gifts from each of the decades. Ideal for anyone celebrating a special landmark birthday! As our name suggests, we stock delicious sweets from each era. From the Sarsaparillas of the 1940s to Kola Cubes from the 1980s. The sweet gift pack selections are very popular, or, you can select our exclusive sweet gift mugs! The mugs all relate to popular images from the decades, including product advertising, famous people and popular TV programmes or films. Each mug is then filled with a selection of retro sweets.


In addition to the decade related sweets, we have some amazing personalised newspapers that relate to the year of birth. These come as bound books, or as a newspaper with your loved one’s favourite tipple! Likewise, if you want something completely unique, we have a range of personalised books, from spoof Ladybird books, to starring in your own classic novel, like Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’!


Of course, you can’t get more individual than a personalised present. Unique personalised gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but, combining personalisation, with nostalgia, will have a double whammy effect! Personalised sweet hampers could be a great gift for her. Personalised football newspaper books may be a great gift for him! Or vice versa, of course!


Naturally, we have a plethora of gifts that would thrill anyone interested in history. World War I and World War II memorabilia, the history of transport through books and advertising memorabilia, and books on the royal family. In addition to this, we have some great gifts for sports fans. Newspaper books about rugby, football, horse racing, cricket and formula one!


With over 1000 products in our store, there truly is a gift idea on our site to meet all needs. Our extensive range changes regularly, as we’re always looking out for new, unique, retro gift ideas that slot into our Sweet and Nostalgic theme. Our 1990s themed gifts are expanding rapidly, for example. Of, course, we can ship directly to your loved ones too, see our delivery page for details. So, for an extensive range of great gift ideas, visit the store, you won’t be disappointed.
