Is it just because I’m a woman that men are so difficult to buy for? I steadfastly refuse to buy the same old socks and Whiskey for Christmas presents this year, especially when there are so many amazing gifts out there for guys. I’ve picked some of my favourites and I just hope my husband isn’t reading this post otherwise he’ll guess that I’m buying him a giant T-Rex head to go on our living room wall this Christmas 😉
I apologize right now for the number of Star Wars related gifts in this list. You KNOW I’m a total Star Wars geek (the original movies anyway) so I simply couldn’t resist. I’ve included plenty of other gifts just in case you somehow don’t ‘get’ the whole Han Solo thing…
I also have to mention that I know there are some dinosaur-themed items on here which aren’t exactly retro (more pre-historic) but they’re undeniably cool!
Raleigh Chopper Mug
If I had a pound for every time my husband has loving reminisced about his beloved Chopper then I’d be rich indeed! The Chopper was the king of cool bikes back in the 70s let him re-live the dream…
Crosley Retro Turntable / Record Player
Also available in blue this turntable is the perfect gift for a guy who won’t get rid of his vinyl!
Tetris Night Light
You can stack and change these fun Tetris cube night lights in any order you like, just like the game (but without the annoying music).
Mounted T-Rex Dinosaur Head
Sooooo cool. What else do I need to say. Apart from the fact that it would give my 8-year-old nightmares, but I’m still getting one.
Remote Control Pac Man
These aren’t just remote control Pac Man and Red Ghost, oh no, these play the Pac Man music while one chases the other around the floor! Epic! Hours of happy Christmas afternoon fun!
Cassette Tape Cushion
Ideal for the hipster in your life, this retro cassette tape cushion is comfy and cool.
Star Wars Costumes from the Original Trilogy
I really want this book. Don’t get me wrong, it would be a great gift for anyone who loves Star Wars, but if anyone fancies buying me a copy this Christmas then please do!
The Adventurer Retro Sailor Mug
Everyone loves a sailor, right? Remind him of that by swooning every time he uses this mug.
Polaroid Camera Toilet Roll Holder
There’s nothing quite relaxing as someone pointing a camera at you while you’re sitting on the loo, but I still love this Polaroid style toilet roll holder. Just be grateful it doesn’t actually take photos…
I Heart Princess Leia Mug
Show the world that Princess Leia is still the girl of your dreams, blaster and all.
The Gentlemen’s Guide to Cocktails
If Pac Man and Choppers just aren’t sophisticated for you (imagine!) then the Gentlemen’s Guide to Cocktails might be just your tipple. Get your Cary Grant on and your Cocktail shaker out boys.
My husbands new business has some perfect stocking fillers for men, http://kingclassics.com/
Thanks for that blatent plug Helen! 😉 Here might be a great place for your husband to advertise his business…? Take a look at my ad rates and please get in touch if you have any questions! http://weheartvintage.co/advertise/
The things that I would love on this list are the Polaroid toilet holder (too cute) and of course the tape cushion.
The fact that Polaroids and cassettes are now considered vintage makes me feel slightly over the hill.
I know, terrible isn’t it?!
