5 Perfect Holiday Gifts for Vintage Enthusiasts

vintage office accessories
Some gifts just never go out of style. For vintage lovers, even more unconventional pieces can make amazing gifts this holiday season. If you have an old-school soul on your shopping list this year and are at a total loss, consider some of these fun and unique vintage gift ideas:
  1. Record Player
    Vinyl is back in a big way. Many music lovers are returning to the sounds of yesteryear and purchasing record players and portable turntables. Some people swear that vinyl sounds better than today's digital music, so why not give the gift of music this holiday season? A record player can help any room feel a bit more refined and give off a retro vibe. Who knows, you may spark the recipient to start a vinyl collection as well.
  2. Vintage Office Accessories
    There's no better way to throw it back to the 1960s "Mad Men" era than vintage office accessories like specialty pens, custom logo embossers, and personal library stamps. While we don't receive them regularly, letters are still in circulation. In fact, 141 billion letters were mailed in 2014 alone. With these vintage desk accessories, maybe you'll find yourself getting a handwritten thank you note this year.
  3. A Pair of Mary Janes
    Whether heeled or flat, Mary Janes are very retro, but still super stylish and classic. Paired with a skater skirt or a dress, these shoes are sure to make a statement and reel in a few compliments.
  4. A Polaroid Camera
    While most of us are using our phones to capture photos these days, and there are filters that make these photos look like a Polaroid, there's something special about being able to hold a tangible photo instantly. If you can get your hands on an old Polaroid camera and film, you're sure to make any retro-enthusiast's day. You'll have a blast taking photos and making memories throughout your holiday celebration. Plus, you can find modern versions of these classic Polaroid cameras, one of the hottest Christmas gifts of 2016.
  5. Jewelry and Accessories
    Specialty boutiques carry vintage-inspired accessories like collar clips, berets, pendants, and more. Talk to a shop that exclusively carries these types of items and don't be afraid to ask for a recommendation. You never know what you might find if you just ask!
