When I shop for people I either like to buy in a theme, or buy two little things, so if one doesn't quite work out the other one will. Call me a "type A" personality, but I like recipients to like what they get from me! Don't you?!
Here's some ideas of little sets from Cats Like Us so you have the perfect gift! Mix and match them to get the right price point for you! (Note: All of these make great stocking-stuffers or individual items too.)
Vintage Hair Styling Book +
This is a must have for all girls looking to recreate that vintage hair style. The author writes, "This book shows how to recreate so many of those vintage hairstyles. This 2nd Edition takes hairstyles from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s and breaks them down into simple, easy-to-follow instructions. It uses over 750 brand new photographs and illustrations and detailed directions in a 200-page full-color book. No matter your skill level or hair type, Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step by Step Techniques has something for everyone. If you are just looking for a hairstyle for a special occasion like a period wedding or a style to go with a vintage prom dress, Vintage Hairstyling has both up-do options and options for a longer hair look. Swing dancers looking for a style for dancing will find many options with staying power." $36.95.
Add a Hair Flower ($4-8) OR a Krampus Cuties Hair Tie ($8). With over 50 designs to choose from you're sure to find one for someone on your list! OR a Chiffon Hair Scarf ($8 or $3 for a vintage scarf only available in our boutique). They can be used in your hair, around your neck or as a decorative accessory!
Vintage Apron +
Have a friend that is cooking a lot from home now and trying to be festive while cooped up? Maybe you need a hostess gift for someone in your "bubble"? These Aprons are sure to make your food taste better! (Just kidding, but you'll look like you worked really hard in the kitchen) $16-18.
Add some Cats Like Us Swizzles ($4) because after cooking away in the kitchen you deserve a cocktail. Why not add a Tiki Mug ($22-30) too? Or a hand pinstriped Flask ($28)?
Vintage Handbag +
Get them a one of a kind gift like a vintage Handbag ($14-88)! Pair it with a Vintage Wallet ($16-22) or Vintage Gloves ($6-16) to keep their hands safe from germs! Many of the Vintage Wallets we have are New Old Stock too! AND you don't have to worry about getting the right size with a purse or wallet.
Vintage Brooch +
A Brooch is always a nice gift because it can be worn so many different ways, on a collar, coat, sweater, purse. ($6-68) They make great stocking stuffers and we carry over 100 different designs!!! Add a Magnet Brooch Holder ($18), so they don't have to worry about damaging any of their clothes with pin holes! It's such a handy gadget!
Along with the jewelry theme, we have Necklaces ($10-38), Earrings ($6-18), and Bracelets ($4-48)that can be mixed and matched. Some of the jewelry we stock even comes in already matched Sets ($18-48)!
If you know their size and style a fun cardigan Sweater ($30-68) is always a welcome gift in cold weather! Add some vintage Sweater Clips ($16-18) to make it even more special!
Socks are always a "safe" gift. Everyone wears socks at some point. We have Mens and Ladies socks from $9-12 with all kinds of themes including, cats, mixed drinks, food, hobbies, tropical, and holiday.
Maybe you're buying for someone who is more swanky? Pair a Tie ($18-38) with some vintage Cufflinks ($12-18) and classic Viva Las Vegas CD ($25 that have become collectable).
Gift giving can be tricky, but a gift card fits even the finicky friend! Give them the gift of choice with a Cats Like Us Gift Card! Gift cards are delivered instantly.
