My birthday was earlier this month and I received an awesome birthday present from my sister.
It was really great. She put a lot of thought into it, and it took time to gather all of it.
Here goes.....I'm going to reveal my age.
I was born in 1971.
I know, you wouldn't have thought I was that young would you.
All of the items that were included in my gift were from 1971.
First up, a Starbucks gift card.
Starbucks was founded in 1971.
Love me some coffee!

Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, with Gene Wilder, came out in 1971.
|Willie Wonka debuted in 1971|
Better Homes and Gardens put out their first cookbook in 1971. This one is a reprint of the original.
|I remember my mom's copy of this from when I was a kid.|
I'm pretty sure I've had this hair style!
Oh, and this magazine is really thin, not like today's Southern Living.

This magazine is from 3 days after I was born, August 6.
|August 6, 1971 Time Magazine|
This Woman's Day magazine had all the tips. And, check out the price.

Here's a close up of the price! Ah, the good old days....
My sister noted that there are a lot of styles in this Architectural Digest that are back in style.

She, also, included a vintage calendar towel (like these) from 1971 that I plan to frame.
I thought this was such a great gift! I loved it and have gone through the magazines several times. It has been such fun!
Have you ever done this for someone? What did, or would, you include?
