Let me just begin this page by stating I sure hope someone who deeply loves me, sees this, because I would love to have any of these finds! I enjoy shopping, just ask my very patient husband. So that stated, honey, I did not purchase any of the items noted below…except for the Christmas cards, purchased 2 months ago so they sorta don’t count.
So , what about you? Thinking of gifts for your favourite Mid-Century Modern fan this year? Well, I have put together some great items ranging in price from a few bucks to bigger. Just click on the links of interest to shop! Happy Holidays!
How about some adorable Charlie Brown stamps ($12.65 includes shipping) to get cards in the mail? Whether for you to spread the cheer or give to someone you love, these are forever stamps to be used at any time, even perhaps Christmas in July!
After we purchased our MCM home, I began getting these delightful retro cards every year. I adore these fun and spirited cards from the Retro Christmas Card Company. Many designs to decide from, too! ($12.00 & $4.00 shipping)
Who doesn’t want a groovy Calder inspired mobile by AtomicMobiles? (I suppose someone that already possesses a Calder) But these are well made, true in design and I know this because I have one.
Mid Century Houses Today, by Lorenzo Ottaviani, is a weighty hard cover coffee table book for both looks, educational and inspirational reasons. I soaked this stuff up when learning about and looking for my Middy as well as, because the search was such a bitch, keeping me on point, not settling, keeping hopes up and staying the course. Now I display these books and use them as reference material.
For a gift that keeps arriving, there is always the delightful read all the way through Atomic Magazine, $19.95.
And for the well stocked MCM kitchen, who would NOT love this ensemble? Atomic Dreams Linen Kitchen Set! Potholder, apron and oven mitt and a dish towel, $32.00 and free shipping.
I love this flowery tea towel! This yummy jacquard print is by Split P, it’s hip and mod.
This retro butterfly flask ($10.00 and free shipping) really sets a groovy tone and looks way more expensive than it is! Perfect for cocooning in a corner by the fire or display on the bar.
And this set of 6 retro floral cocktail napkins are hand made! ($11.99 & $3.94 shipping)
Same price, and hand made by the same artist, this pastel set of 6 retro floral cocktail napkins.
OMG, what is NOT to like about this Lava Lamp Ice Bucket by destination PSP! ($58.00 & $4.49 shipping) I’m dying over the lucite topper, and those colours!
You get 6 rather stunning rocks glasses for $34.95 and free shipping. Not sure you can beat that. They are gorgeous and manly….but I like it too.
Everybody wants to look and feel shaggadelic. I rep for Miessence which is a certified organic skin and body care line with a few enzymatic home care products too. It’s easy to shop online but harder to find pure organic ‘skinfood’ like this. Take a look and I am here for any questions you have. Give the gift of healthy, safe, potent and pure beauty!

The blue on this retro set of 5 shot glasses is stunning. Perfect for the individual who appreciates something truly from the era. ($58.99 & $24.50 Shipping)

The simplicity of this amber Blenko style glass is classic. $60.00 & $4.49 shipping is nicely priced.
The strong and silent type, Man’s face planter, great for many things from agave to fern. $160.3.4 & $6.98 Shipping makes it so.
For some hip music, I personally know this guy. He not only is a great family man, but a fantastic entertainer! We hired him to play at our housewarming and you’d swear to it that it was 1962 all over again. This is cheap and fabulous if you like the era of Dean and martinis.
Ricki Derek’s Holiday album is fantastic. $1.39..cheap and fantastic. How often are these two things combined?
And non holiday Ricki Derek:
