Christmas Cheer - Tricky This Year?

We go back in time to help you find the perfect gifts.  

Choosing the right present for those we hold dear has been made even more tricky this crazy year with shops intermittently closed.  We have also missed trips out together pointing at desired items in shop windows, opportunities to exchange hints and clues.  Whilst we haven’t had the visitors to our own showroom, thankfully our website has kept us afloat where we have been able to bring you a good selection of vintage & vintage-inspired goodies despite the circumstances.  This season we have expanded our range of potential Christmas gifts to spark some ideas and help you find something unique. Here we share some of our favourites for the vintage lovers in your life or someone who appreciates a personal gift that doesn't follow fast fashion trends.

Selection of 6 mens gift ideas from Revival vintage

12 Days Of Vintage Gifts For Men

1  A Vintage Style hat,  This green Fedora is one of many vintage style hats and caps to compliment clothing from several eras.  Tweed caps look great with country-style clothing and retro Peaky Blinders style outfits.  Our Fedoras, Panamas and Trilbies come in a good choice of colours so they can be coordinated with 1930s and 1940s suits and jackets.

Revival men's hats £16.99 - £31.99

2   Socialite Moon Tweed Jacket. Of course, we offer a range of original vintage tweed jackets but size availability in the styles you like are always going to be a bit hit and miss.  This fabulous range of tailored tweeds using Moon high-quality cloth takes away the gamble.   One size can always be exchanged for another if, for example, the receiver has had one too many mince pies on the run-up to the big day.

 7  Starlet 1940s Vintage-Inspired Dress.  Buying a true vintage garment as a gift can be risky.  With Revival, you don't have to worry on that score.  We accept returns after the Christmas Five!.  Not only that we offer a range of vintage style dresses which are closer to standard sizes.  They can also be swapped for a different size of the same dress which of course isn't possible with true vintage.  Here we have one of our Socialite dresses which have been cloned from an original vintage dress in our archive.

Socialite dresses from £52.99

8  Mustard Vintage Style Knitted Cardigan.  The cardigans of the 1940s and 1950s fashion tended to be fairly fitted and stop at the waist or just beneath.  This cardigan reflects the look of those decades.  Available in green or mustard, two great shades for Autumn & Winter.
