With less than a month until Christmas, I know some people are already pulling their hair out over what to get for the non-pinups in their lives, let alone the pinups! Shopping for someone who has a very specific style is hard and it can be easy to assume you know what they like if you don’t consult them beforehand. You don’t want to end up giving them a bad case of present face.
All that said, here’s some quick Christmas gift ideas for the pinup/vintage lover in your life if you’re working on a small budget. Please note, this blog is not sponsored in any way, shape or form! Just a collection of bits and bobs that I know wouldn’t go amiss under my Christmas tree this year.
An Erstwilder brooch
Calling me obsessed with Erstwilder is putting it lightly. Since discovering the brand a few months ago, I now own fifteen Erstwilder brooches. They’re perfect for people who love adding that extra touch to their outfits and they even have an adorable range of Christmas brooches (which I own five of). Here’s some super cute ones that I would pick up if I were shopping for a pinup.
A Deer Arrow brooch
I personally don’t have any Deer Arrow brooches, but I’ve seen some in real life and they are super cute. Here’s my personal picks from their brooches.
A necessity to finish off any pinup outfit, there’s no such thing as too many hair flowers! Here’s a few that I have my eye on.
Blush Pink Cymbidium Orchid Cluster on Clip – $20.00NZD
Flower cluster from Rita Sue – $20.00NZD (available in store)
If all else fails…
A $50.00 gift certificate to their favourite store will get them a a ways towards their next purchase and make them a happy pinup indeed. My favourite haunts are Pinup Girl Clothing, Lindy Bop and Lady Vintage.
Hope that helps you buy for the pinup in your life! If nothing else, it serves as a nice hint list for those in mine.
Lots of love,
