Summer is here! Which means we’ve got some serious shopping (thrifting) to do. If you’re a little unsure on what to buy for that belated Christmas gift or upcoming birthday – never fear, we’ve got just the gift guide you need. 👇
Keep reading for some great vintage gift inspo (and thank us later).
1. Vintage Tees
Starting off simple with Vintage Tees. Unisex, trendy, and comfortable. The wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or dressed down. A sure-fire Christmas delight that pairs well with pretty much everything.
Next up – Kimonos. Perfect for festivals, to wear to the beach or to simply to layer over a summer outfit. Whether they’re boho-vibe, silky and lacey or a natural hemp and linen ibe – a kimono is guaranteed to surprise (and delight).
3. Cowboy Boots
What’s better than a pair of boots? Cowboy boots. Adding character to any outfit – a high quality pair of boots can last a lifetime (and stay loyal throughout many festival seasons).
4. Boho Jewellery
Boho Jewellery. A simple, yet personal gift. Picking jewellery for someone else can sometimes be tricky, but you can typically tell what type of jewellery someone likes just by looking at the pieces they own already. Pro tip: show them a picture and say you’re getting it for yourself. Their reaction will tell you all you need to know.
5. Levi Cut Offs
Let’s talk Levi’s. They nail the 3 main characteristics of good denim pieces – cut, quality and washes. In summertime, when the weather’s good, a pair of Levi Cut Offs that fit just right are an absolute staple. *BRB adding to your gift list.
6. Basketball Jersey
Something for the sports fanatics and vintage thrifters alike – Basketball Jerseys. Easy to style and a piece you tend to keep for years, they make the perfect gift for any friend, partner or family member.
7. Air Force 1
Go back to basics. A fresh pair of sneakers makes the perfect gift (especially if you’re buying for a sneaker freak – you know who you are). Air Force 1’s are classic, versatile, and timeless. Bound to impress.
8. Branded Overalls
Overalls/Dungarees – our summer BFF. The one piece of clothing we chuck on as we’re heading out the door over the summer months and our favourite thing to layer under in winter. They’re unisex, available short or long and in loads of different materials so there’s plenty of variety. Trust us on this, you can’t go wrong with a thrifted pair of denim ones.
9. Bucket Hat
A classic gift – the bucket hat. Practical for sun protection (important – ✅), they’re the perfect accessory to complete a summer outfit or take your festival get-up up a notch.
10. Bum Bag
And finishing with a trend that’s here to stay – the good ol’ bum bag. Whether it’s one that makes a statement, completes an outfit, doubles as a belt or a handbag – they make a great stocking filler.
