We’ve put together a selection of retro and kitsch gifts that we think you’ll love. If you’re looking for unique Christmas gifts, with a large helping of nostalgia, our retro homewares and accessories could be the solution to your shopping quest. If you’re stuck for ideas for Secret Santa gifts, we’ve got gift sets for under a tenner, which are perfect for office colleagues. We also have super cute stocking fillers for retro gals and rockabilly chicks.
Our retro gift collection celebrates all things retro and vintage. We use the past decades of the 50s, 60s 70s and 80s as inspiration for stunning accessories and home décor. Our designs are full of nostalgia for days gone by, appealing to those in need of finishing touches for their modern retro homes, or for whom such designs bring back nostalgic memories from their childhood home .... or even those who remember these styles the first time around! We have something for all generations.
And for the ladies, in particular, we have Rockabilly, Tiki and Tropical themed accessories, which make perfect gifts for girlfriends, best friends, wives and Moms … especially those who love wearing vintage style clothes, or who like a bit of Tropical or Pin Up Glamour.
Stuck in the 70s? If you're shopping for someone who likes a bit of 70s kitsch then we’ve got a fabulous Op Art Inspired design available on both mugs and coasters.
If you’re after gifts for office colleagues, or Secret Santa Gifts, our matching mug and Coaster Sets are only £9.99 and come gift wrapped in their own box. Buying a Christmas gift for a work colleague can be tricky especially if you don’t know them that well, but these sets will add a touch of retro cool to any desk.

If you want to add a finishing touch, we have a great selection of retro compact mirrors, in classic Rockabilly and Mid Century designs, which include Atomic Starbursts, Leopard Print, Cherries, Pin Up and Tiki.
And if you can’t decide, we have ‘matching bandana and compact mirror gift sets’ for tropical babes and flamingo fans.
What girl doesn’t love a bag!?! Bags are NOT something you can ever have too many of … especially tote bags. SO handy for shopping, college, work ... the beach (yes it WILL get warmer one day ….). Rockabilly chicks and Mid century gals will love the retro hibiscus flower and tropical parrot print on our denim tote bags.
Shopping for Roller Girls, or 80s wannabees? We have a selection of roller skate themed retro accessories. Fun and kitsch, this design suits those who love roller skating, or who have fond memories of playing out in the street as kids … yes, we did that back in the 80’s, with our leg warmers, ghetto blasters and bubble gum!
Both Mug and Compact Mirror are available in ANY colour of your choice!
