Christmas Gifts for Vintage Lovers - yay retro!

It's a fact that lovers of Vintage adore Vintage gifts over and above any other, but working out what to buy without some heavy hints can be tricky. If you need an easy vintage shop to browse then yay retro! is the place to come.

Our online shop has a Vintage Gift section which highlights the very best items we have from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s & 70s in stock which also appeal as presents. You can scroll and wander through the many shelves of vintage homewares we have for sale, or use the search box in the shop to search by brand, colour or item. It can be a fun thing to use as even entering words such as 'sunshine' can even thrown up interesting results!



We thought to help you shop this Christmas we would run through just a small selection of our top Vintage Christmas Present ideas. Don't forget that we always aim to combine postage, so buying several items is no problem, we will just refund any postage not required (or you can email ahead for a postage quote and special order.) For a little extra postage, we even ship worldwide from Norway to Japan, France to New Zealand and beyond.

In the image above we have a Scandi Style Pontesa Coffee pot, Jug & Sugar Bowl, decorated with bright xmassy red hearts and green flowers this is sure to make a vintage devotee incredibly happy. The set is ideal for use every day or can be placed on display. We also recommend the set of 2 Porsgrund Scandinavian ceramic bottles with golden decorations. This fabulous Xmas present can be sued for oil and vinegar, for perfumes or as ornamental pieces.



If you are looking for something that you can share too, why not choose one of our sets of vintage glassware? We have decanters and shot glasses from the 1950s, as well as many funky glass sets for longer drinks such as vintage ales. Look out for our fine sherry and port glasses too. Simply search 'Glass' to find all that we have for sale.



If you want to impress this Christmas, then our 1960s Flower Power coffee set made by Kahla is 'the thing'. This set has generated 100s of likes and a huge amount of interest across social media.  Rarely found and in marvellous condition this complete coffee set really has the wow factor! Many a fan of retro would be ecstatic to receive this on Christmas day!



We always aim to have plenty of vintage flowery homeware designs from the 1960 and 70s in stock as they are so popular. Right now we have Worcesterware coasters and also the not often seen Washington Pottery Flower Power plates and bowls for sale.

If you are looking for stocking fillers, yay retro! can help with that too. We have a large stock of  vintage for £10 or less, and we can combine postage for you on these to save you even more. (We are imagining a gorgeous stocking full of vintage - would love that!) Try looking through our Art & Ornaments section at some of the lovely glass birds and vases we have right now.



Many people have already begun their Christmas shopping at yay retro!, and with most items being one off's it is never too early to get started. Don't forget, we can combine postage for you via refund after purchase, or email hello@yayretro.co.uk for a postage cost and special order to pay. Prefer to collect? That's okay by arrangement too we are based just outside Southampton. Pop in to yay retro! now and have a good old Christmassy browse....
