Music JukeBox-A Great Nostalgia Gift

Apr 7, 2008
I don't know about you but many times with me I get those overwhelming feelings of nostalgia just looking at something from tester year like a bubble gum machine or a music jukebox. I remember as a little tyke walking down to the corner drugstore, which at that time seemed like a three mile walk, to get my hands on a candy bar or to pt pennies in the various gum ball machines. Ah, those were the days.

That's why Nostalgia gifts are so relevant for the times. Whether it's the sno cone machine, the juke box, the cotton candy or pop corn machines, they all trigger that special sense of nostalgia that brings back the feelings of the security of our childhood home and the warmth and love of those no longer with us. Remember how you felt when your parents surprised you with your first puppy; the trips to the circus with its cotton candy; your first dance with the juke box playing those romantic songs and you were the "belle of the ball"; your first baseball game ending in your spectacular catch; your first kiss?

It's amazing how certain colors, smells, a song, a picture of a childhood toy can evoke such intense nostalgia, a feeling of homesickness for what used to be. You experience once again the serenity and tranquility of your uncomplicated life of simpler times, when families had time to enjoy being together, singing, playing that music jukebox, toasting marshmallows, swinging under an old oak tree. You bask in the pleasure and peace of reliving those times if only for a moment.

Most gifts are welcome and exciting to receive. But one that is as unique as a Nostalgia gift, able to evoke such intense emotions each time you see it, touch it or use it, is one that keeps giving throughout a lifetime, because of the memories that linger. It is a gift most appreciated because it is more personalized than even a monogrammed gift; it reaches to the very heart of the recipient.

Do you remember how often birthdays were so troublesome for you because you never knew what this particular person wanted or liked? Remember how difficult it was to get the gift that would be sure to please? And I suspect that person would be a male member of the family, a husband or father. I was always so disappointed when my father's face would reflect disappointment with his gift. I think women are much easier to buy for, don't you?

From my personal observation, most fathers are not like most mothers-you ask them what they would like and often they either don't know what they like, want or need, or they don't take the time to think about it and simply pass it off or you to decide. They expect you to be a miracle shopper and find what they didn't know they wanted, in the exact size, shape and color they weren't able to tell you when you asked!

Well, let me tell you something that most all dads and husbands would be very happy to receive for any holiday, whether it be Christmas, birthday or Father's Day, and that is a Nostalgia gift; a gift that would escort his thoughts back down memory lane taking him back to this childhood or teen years or even early marriage life.

These are gifts of various purpose and design, but I believe most any family member would be delighted with the vintage music jukebox, electronic machines, the juke box and the neon sign or any others. A gift of any nature is special; but one that brings back happy memories is the most special of all.
