Vintage Stocking Fillers

By La Petite Pinup

The tree is up, the decorations abound and Christmas will soon be upon us. It’s time to start thinking about those last minute gifts, and whether it’s cute and quirky stocking fillers for the family, or something for your retro friend who loves a vintage Christmas, you’ll find the perfect treats here to fill those Christmas stockings, whatever your budget.

Retro Stocking Fillers Under £15

The new range of matching masks, tote bags and cushion cases are
undeniably cute and stylish – matchy-matchy never looked so good! The masks are fully adjustable too which is a great feature. If you’re buying for a Collectif fan, these accessories will have them stepping out in style, finishing off their outfit with a perfectly co-ordinated mask or tote bag. Or choose something like the Gingham or Rainbow Star which will go with most pin up outfits. With their classic but fun designs they crossover too, so non vintage fans would love to find them in their stocking as well! If you prefer a gift for the home, you can keep it cosy and enjoy a little Collectif on the couch with the cushion cases.

Everyone deserves a little pamper now and then, so why not give your friends the gift of a few minutes to relax while enjoying one of these little treats. As we use so much hand sanitiser every day, the V&Co mini hand care kit is a great little set to pop in a stocking to care for hands. I love the incredibly festive bath bombs which are formulated for sensitive skin too – ideal for an indulgent soak. And the glittery eye pads are the perfect antidote for anyone that’s had a hard day. Just pop them in the fridge for a very ‘chilled’ out evening!

Sometimes the pin up look can seem a bit daunting and complicated. This
handy little book is full of original tips and tricks for an authentic vintage look and would be fun to trial different styles whether you’re an amateur or a pro with the hair tools! Every pin up has to practice her brush outs, so give the gift of the Miracle Curl Brush which is perfect for smoothing curls and sits pretty in pink. A cute head scarf or neckerchief instantly transforms anyone’s style and oozes retro feels. I particularly love the Goshka heart print scarf which would add sass to any outfit.

Festive Treats from £15-£25
‘Lounging’ is the new going out at the moment, but with Christmas fast
approaching it’s an opportunity to glam up. The Le Keux eyeliner pot makes for dramatic cat eyes and the packaging is just darling. Adding some jewellery completes an outfit, and with some of us having seen the snow already, what better choice this season than the Snowflake Pearl earrings. The drop pearls are such a classic look and the sparkling snowflake makes a really festive addition. The Emerson mini heart jewellery box is perfect for safely keeping all those trinkets and accessories. It even has a mirror to make sure that eyeliner lines up and the earrings are in place before your loved one dazzles on Christmas Day!

If you’re buying for someone that loves a brisk walk out in the elements, the Shanaya Pom Pom gloves in burgundy are practical but super fun with the pom poms and gloves make a great gift. Everything is better with pom poms! The Sourpuss Death Moth travel tumbler in bubble gum pink is girly but means business! It’s a fab gift choice for coffee addicts on the go. To keep the rain at bay but keeping the vintage style, the Soakes Clear Dome Umbrella in black is a lovely choice. Birdcage umbrellas are so reminiscent of the era and stand out while keeping you dry.

T-shirt’s make handy stocking fillers, and the Twinnie striped T-shirt in black and white has 3/4 sleeves to layer for the colder weather. It looks great with some retro jeans for winter walks or to lounge in at home. If you’re looking for something for them to sleigh at home instead of heading into the elements, then the Reindeer slippers are ideal! How sweet are these little guys?! ALL the festive feels and ridiculously warm and snuggly! A Jeanie Bolero is a staple for any vintage lovin’ gal and they go with everything already in their wardrobe. Such a great little gift and its soft knit oozes cosiness.

Luxury stockings from £25-£50
There are some fabulous festive knits this season which can roll into a lucky stocking. The Raven Woodland jumper depicts a cool blue winter wonderland setting, perfect to snuggle up in while watching a Christmas movie! The Padme Star cardigan also makes a great little gift with its long sleeves and hood to keep them super cosy and star shaped glitter buttons for added glamour. If you want to add a little more sparkle to someone’s Christmas, the Dolores Glitter Drops top will dazzle and delight! In a sumptuous navy velvet and twinkling in glitter, she’ll be feeling like a princess on Christmas Day.

You may need Santa’s sack rather than a stocking for these, but why not send some love their way with the Martina Love Letter bag. The scalloped edge on the envelope style front is just divine. Shoe boots are perfect to transition into winter and the festive red Vera heels will add a pop of colour to any of their outfits. The gift of a vintage styled hat like the Lissy in black will always be appreciated. It’s often something that’s last to be thought of but makes such a big impact to the overall look and features a stunning birdcage veil.

A good red lipstick is hard to find, but a staple for any pin up’s dressing table. The Besame 1946 Red Velvet is a great shade for all skin tones and
historically accurate with a really pretty case. Within this price bracket, you could also treat someone to the perfect holiday dress! In a wonderful red and white check, the Amber holiday romance pencil dress can be slid inside a stocking to be worn by someone special for Christmas lunch. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a cheeky robin visiting and this one by Oh So Flamingo with its gorgeous red breast is carrying some mistletoe to spread some festive cheer.

But what about the guys? With a range of men’s stocking filler ideas, there’s
something for everyone and to suit all budgets.

Retro Accessories Under £15
Socks don’t have to be boring! And these snazzy Beatnik pairs with geometric and pop art prints would be great to pop in a stocking. Or add some rockabilly style to their outfits with the Luke Slim braces. Check the sale section too for some bargain fillers like the Alex Knitted tank top for a classic 40’s look.

Dapper Gifts from £15-25
Rockabilly guys looking to perfect their quiff will be thrilled with Suavacita
. And for vintage lovin’ gents with a moustache, Captain Fawcett’s
will tame their tache into submission! The Tiago Woodland plaid shirt
with its 50’s workwear style makes a great stocking filler too for any guy in to vintage aesthetics.

Midcentury Modern for £25-£50
The Timmy’s Biker Slim Wallet comes with a removable chain which can be
attached to jeans, giving a rockabilly feel to a simple outfit, as well as being
practical for holding cards and notes. The Bobbie Nautical top features a ship sailing the seas and an atomic North Star. Roll it up to pop in a stocking and brighten up his daily jeans combo! Get luxury for less with the Lenny Jacket in the sale which would make anyone’s day to open in their stocking! It’s an authentic vintage shape and features crosshatching design details over the shoulders.

So whether it’s friends, family or a Secret Santa you’re shopping for, give everyone a treat this year and let the stockings be full with Collectif! Have a
have a great day for those who celebrate Christmas.
