As you all know I’m a sucker for a bit of the past, the good bits mind, rose tinted spec’s and all that 😉
The vintage look has become hugely popular in the last couple of years and whether you are just starting in the world of vintage or have been a vintage die hard fan since childhood, these gift ideas for Christmas could be right up your street.
Send your other half, (I’ll be sending it to mine!) friends and family this article and you’ll be sure to find something in your stocking that you adore.
First up is the vintage fashionista’s “Go To” jewellery brand – Luxulite. Handmade in Sunderland, UK these are vintage inspired pieces made from Lucite in most cases and they are just so lovely it’d be hard to choose just one! This one below is £15-from Etsy.
Next up is the cutest tech item you ever did see, an exclusive to John Lewis. This mini DAB radio has got the retro look down to a fine art and would make a great gift. It comes in different colours but personally I love the red. *sigh* Get it here.
I stumbled across the Garden Trading website when looking for some bedside lights- they do so lovely vintage inspired lighting. I saw this new range of kitchenwares with a very 50s looking muscat design and had to add it to the list. The do milk pans, mugs and canisters in two colourways but my favourite item is this utensil holder.
There is a huge amount of choice now in the vintage repro clothing world. One brand that has gained a bit of a cult following just recently is Silly Old Seadog, they are reknown for their quirky prints and the fact they go up to size 28, not always a given in repro clothing (or any clothing for that matter!
Finally if you’ve a large amount of cash to spend on a gift for your vintage lady this Christmas, and want something to knock her socks off I suggest a car! A Nissan Figaro to be exact, they have the curved lines of the cars of yesteryear, but with the technology of automobile’s today, and include things like power steering and air conditioning. There’s a large selection of Nissan Figaro’s for sale here.
Tune in tomorrow for gift ideas for those cool kids in your life… See you then.
