Finding someone's dream gift is never easy and something we are challenged with every year.

This gift guide aims to be helpful to everyone regardless of budget or the person you’re buying for so that you can have a straightforward and hassle-free shopping experience this December.
Now, to the gifts...
Gifts Ideas For Your Dad
A lot of the time, buying for your Dad is the hardest challenge to face at Christmas. If this rings true for you, you have come to the right place. All of these items have been selected with the father figure in mind. From a simple pocket watch to a knitted waistcoat, you will find a gift that will make your Dads Christmas truly special.
The Rufus waistcoat is one of our most popular pieces that is inspired by forties fashion. The Rufus was made to layer up either under a formal jacket or over a shirt and tie, whichever sounds more like your Dad, we bet he’d be happy to have such a versatile piece in his wardrobe. It should also be noted that the Rufus waistcoat was named after our founder Helene’s father who is one of her biggest inspirations.
This vintage-style pocket fob watch is a great gift for anyone that loves vintage. It comes with a brushed silver finish and makes a great accessory for any outfit to give it that classic vintage touch.
Does your Dad regularly wear shirts? If so, cufflinks are a great gift to spice up any shirt. If your Dad is a lover of 40s fashion or enjoys the wartime look without feeling too utilitarian, these RAF spitfire cufflinks are the ultimate option.
If you don’t know where to start with shopping for your Dad, a vintage tie is a great option. They are versatile and come in a wide range of colours and patterns meaning that you can find a tie just as perfect as your Dad. If ties aren't his thing, we also have a fantastic selection of cravats and bow ties.
Trouser braces are a great option as they are universally loved and can be paired with nearly any outfit dependant on the trousers. We have an extensive range of men's trouser braces which means you can choose a pair faultless for your Dad! A personal favourite option is the Monochrome Stripe Button Braces as their minimal colour palette makes these braces simple to style and highly versatile.
Gifts For Your Mum
This high-quality cardigan is a soft knit that can only be described as a wearable hug. The timeless Fair Isle design means it will never go out of style and can be worn for years to come which makes it the perfect long-lasting gift that will keep a smile on your Mum’s face for years to come.
A vintage scarf is a great option due to the diverse offering we have. All of our scarves are one of a kind but there is a large variety meaning that you can find a scarf as perfect for your Mum as she is to you.
These catseye glasses are the winning gift if your Mum loves fifties fashion. The clear glass and black frame make these the perfect accessory to complete any fifties looks. As these glasses are so affordable, they would also make an exemplary Secret Santa gift for anyone who loves fifties fashion.
These genuine leather gloves make for a perfect gift this cold season. They feature a faux fur lining for extra warmth and comfort and would make a great addition to any vintage outfit. These gloves are available in three colours and are the ideal practical and fashionable gift for any Mum this Christmas.
Instead of a beanie hat, why not treat your mum to a turban this year? The turban headband is a chic option for the coming cold seasons and will last for years to come. These turbans were knitted in Scotland out of 100% Merino wool and are of exceptional quality. If your Mum would like chic headwear but isn’t a fan of the turban, why not look at our berets? They are now available in 12 colours.
Gifts For Your Male Partner
When it comes to buying for your male partner, we thought about simple yet practical products that every man needs and will treasure for years to come. Regardless of your partner's sense of style or your budget, we have hand-selected five items that we think would make their Christmas a little more special.
This satchel is ideal for any man, especially those who commute or regularly run errands. This satchel is a handmade and high-quality dream. In a dark brown colour, this bag is highly versatile and will add a preppy touch to any outfit.
These Dents gloves are a practical gift for the man in your life. These durable gloves are made from hairsheep leather and are fully lined with silk. They are also a snug fit to avoid excess bulking. Made by Dents, the glove specialists where quality is the focus.
One from our in-house Socialite label is the Fair Isle Tank Top created with pure Scottish wool, perfect for men who prefer the finer things in life. Due to the quality of the wool, this tank top can be worn this year and for many years to come.
A staple in any vintage fashion lover's wardrobe: a wool fedora. This classic hat can be worn with any outfit to give it that forties touch which makes it the ideal gift for anyone that loves forties fashion.
The Logger shirt is one of the newest styles at Revival Vintage and has proven popular so far. This shirt is the ideal gift for any man that loves fifties fashion as it was designed based on real fifties advertisements and clothing patterns.
Gifts For Your Female Partner
We thought about the classics when it comes to buying for your female partner. No matter how long you have been together or how well you know your partner, these products are certain to get the reaction you want this Christmas. There are also a lot of colour options for these items so that you can tailor your decision-making around your loved one.
The Nostalgia bag is the perfect accessory for any woman. It is made from a soft faux leather and has a classic style that is sure to become a wardrobe staple. It is also available in three other colours so there is a Nostalgia bag for everyone.
Perfect for people concerned with animal welfare, this top has no animal products in it unlike a lot of knitwear pieces. It gives a nod to the forties with both its shape and colour but if cream isn’t your partner’s thing, this cable knit tank top is also available in five other colours.
I would be excited to receive this beauty for Christmas. The Promenade coat is a high-quality coat that can be paired with almost anything to create a sophisticated look. This lightweight coat is lined with a buttery satin fabric and is made for any woman that loves the forties and needs a transitional coat.
There is a beret for everyone in a range of twelve colours. This beret is a great way to keep warm and stylish in the colder months but can also be taken into the spring easily. These berets make beautiful gifts that will be appreciated all year round.
We all know the hassle of taking our gloves on and off in the winter to type, so why not make your loved ones' life a bit easier with these touchscreen gloves? Made by Dents, the glove specialists where quality is the focus.
If you have someone that you need to shop for but are completely lost with what they would choose, we also have gift vouchers starting from £10 so regardless of your budget, you can still make someone's Christmas special with a touch of Revival Vintage.
