Default Nostalgia basket

I am thinking of making up a nostalgia basket for my parents this Xmas, and I was wondering if you had any ideas for what I could put in it. I am getting started with a retro sweet box, and have a couple of other ideas as well, but all input would be welcome!

I agree with Racklen what sort of age? Pictures of the whole family in a photoframe always go down well. Lots of different photos of the family throught the ages etc., Give us a heads up on the age and then we can give you more ideas!

I tracked down a comic and magazine from the week my mum was born on ebay for next to nothing

I just entered the year on ebay and took a wander, you can also find old pictures of the area they were born in
