Vintage Christmas Gifts For Women

Here are a few of my top picks for Christmas, all from Coolclobber. Whatever your favourite era, you can accessorise with a stylish handbag, scarf, hat or gloves, to add a bit of Vintage “ je ne sais quoi” to your outfit.

It is easy to create your own style with Vintage pieces, knowing that your look is unique.  Friends too appreciate the thought that goes in to finding them a special Vintage gift. My gift suggestions include leather goods, such as a good quality wallet, belt or writing case, as well as powder compacts, which are practical as well as beautiful. For compacts, look for makes like Stratton or Coty, for quality pieces.

If you are buying Vintage clothes on line, (and particularly if you are buying for someone else!), do check all measurements carefully, remembering the sizes can vary enormously on Vintage items, and size labels are therefore deceptive.

Many items at Coolclobber and Floslingerie have free postage within the U.K. for the rest of the year.

Vintage Christmas gifts for men

November is here, and the High St shops are already decorated for Christmas.  It’s a great time to start thinking about Christmas Shopping, and if you are into Vintage, it’s a great time to source the perfect gifts for your friends and family.

My selection of menswear items includes both clothes and accessories. My on-line shop, Coolclobber, has a wide selection of menswear from all eras, with a particularly good section of small items that are perfect for gifting.  Wallets, grooming kits, scarves, gloves and hats make great gifts and many of these items are priced between £20 and £50.  I also have some fabulous shirts, sweaters and coats, and many of my items are Deadstock ( unworn old shop stock).  Many items in stock are postage free within the UK, right up until the end of the year!
