Gift Guide #4: They Were Born In The Wrong Era And Are Secretly Jealous Of Mad Men

Some call them hipsters and roll their eyes but I think they were born in the wrong decade. If you saw them walking down the street you swear you saw a ghost. They wish upon a star for a time machine and are slightly envious of Mad Men. You may know someone who deeply admires the 1920s or the 1960s and when they get a chance, they dress and decorate their home from their favorite period.

I admit, I'm partially this person. I'm actively trying to recreate my home into my mid century dream and am always falling for retro inspired clothing. I love old black and white movies, big band music, and am a swing dancer. But no, if you saw me on the streets, I wouldn't look like a ghost, I haven't gone down the deep end ;) Because I connect so well, I've chosen a few gift ideas (under $100) I think he and she will truly love.




1. Refurbished Eskimo Vintage Blue Electric Fan,  It's a nice addition to a vintage lover's home and guaranteed to bring smiles. 2. Vintage postcards, with writing is even better! 3. Vintage Polaroid Land Camera is so refreshing from today's digital everything plus you can instantly print pictures. 4. 1946 Western Electric 302 Telephone, let her pretend she's like Lucy while she's chatting away. 5. Classic film box sets are a perfect gift for the classic film lovers! 6. 1950's Pink Portable Holiday Dictaphone, let them be the coolest person in the office with a Mad Men like office item. 7. Etsy Gift Cards are perfect for those who love vintage and homemade items!     



It is sad that I want all of the 'For Him' ideas (I'm a female)? LOL! Anyway, great blog, would you like to follow each other?

This made me laugh out load because I really WAS born in the wrong era. A typical night for me and husband consists of watching the Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Hour!!

Perfect gift ideas!
