The Dressing Vintage Holiday Gift Guide
Posted on 08 December 2016
Everyone knows that person. You know the one. The relative or friend who buys themselves the latest trend gadget or perfectly-them sweater a week before Christmas, and you are left scrambling to find the gift receipt.
Our answer to that tricky loved one (and anyone else you want a special gift for) is the Dressing Vintage Gift Guide! When you get someone a vintage Christmas present, you are not only supporting ethical small business, you are giving a quality, unique, one-of-a-kind, perfectly thoughtful present.
Vintage Gifts for Her
Buying vintage online can be tricky, especially as a gift for someone else. What you really need are the bust, waist, and hip measurements (and often other various other lengths and widths, depending on the garment) in order to ensure the perfect fit.
Those measurements can be very hard to procure without your loved ones becoming very suspicious (or downright alarmed).
Fortunately, accessories are (for the most part) one size fits all, and fit most budgets. Most accessories are under $100, and a lot these exquisite gifts are under $50! That's why our vintage holiday gift guide comes from our large assortment of vintage accessories!
Vintage necklaces with precious metals or gemstones make an incredible gift for women of all ages. A vintage choker is the perfect special gift for a teenage girl or girl in her 20's, and 1920's Deco necklaces are fun and unique pieces for women with fun, retro taste. Gold and silver are classic choices for women of all ages.
Necklaces aren't the only vintage jewelry gift option, there are also earrings, hair accessories, fur clips, bracelets, shoe clips, belt/sash buckles, brooches and more! With so many options of colored stones and metals, you are sure to find something special for your someone special!
From novelty scarves to designer silk, there is a vintage scarf for everyone on your gift list. I love scarves because of their versatility. They can be knotted around the neck, worn loosely on the shoulders, tied like a headband, tied on a purse strap, or framed to admire like a piece of art.
The look and feel of vintage leather gloves cannot be beat. Whether silk lined or suede, you can't help but feel luxurious in a pair of vintage gloves!
There is a hat for every season and every style! Hats add a sense of flair and sophistication to every outfit, while also serving as an essential staple of the winter wardrobe. These faux and real fur hats and velvet berets will keep your loved ones ears and head warm all winter long!
The Dressing Vintage team is heading to Scandinavia this winter in search of vintage treasures, so be sure to place all orders by noon on December 15th to ensure your packages arrive in time for Christmas!
And keep your eyes peeled for Dressing Vintage Blog posts from Sweden for upcoming shop listings!
