Valentine’s day gift ideas

Whether you’re looking for something for Valentine’s, PALentine’s or treating yourself to a little something we have gifts fit for any vintage lover! If you’re struggling to find that perfect gift, relax and let us take the lead in finding that special something!Dolores doll dress polka, Dolores doll classic cotton


With spring approaching in the next few months, we’re bringing perfect picnic pieces for next season! We love lighter fabrics and spring colours with a 1950’s twist.

This season we have our Sammy broderie anglaise tie blouse made from a classic vintage-accurate cotton fabric with floral embroidery and cut outs. She features heart shaped buttons and ties into a bow at the waist for that extra sweet vibe. Wear her casually or with a swing skirt to complete your 1950’s vintage look!
She sits on the natural waist giving you room to wear her with highwaisted skirts, jeans or shorts for a 50’s pinup vibe. Our Sammy also comes in white so you can pair her with anything in your wardrobe! If you’re looking for something a little different this Valentine’s, browse more of our blouses here.


Maybe you’d like to create a cute outfit combination for yourself or to give as a gift. Why not pair our Sammy with our Katherine vintage gingham swing skirt for that vintage picnic vibe? Our Katherine is a new style to our Spring Summer collection and comes in our vintage gingham print in pale blue. She’s an A-Line shaped skirt, with a wide ruffle at the hem giving her some added fun and sweetness! Pair her with white or pale blue accessories for a complete retro ensemble! For more fabulous swing skirts to suit your own personal style, browse more here.





We’re all wishing winter away and dreaming about our summer holidays. So why not prepare yours or that special someone’s wardrobe for next season with some of our amazing tropical prints?


On the right we have our Kiana tropicalia pencil dress complete with toucans, hibiscus flowers and tropical leaves. Our Kiana is another brand new style this season which features a sweetheart neckline with a pointed collar and adjustable multiway straps. They can be worn in a variety of ways or completely removed depending on your mood!
She’s a beautiful fitted style that nips you in at the waist, fitting tightly through the body to her under-knee length hem. To complete your gift why not pair her with a tropical flower hair accessory or bamboo sunglasses?


If a pencil dress isn’t yours or your partner’s style, why not try our quirky Matilde tropical banana swing skirt? Our bespoke print features tropical leaves and bananas, perfectly combining a modern design with 1950’s retro style!
To  bring your tropical outfit together, pair her with yellow accessories and bamboo earrings.
Our Matilde can also be worn with an A-line petticoat underneath, we would recommend pairing her with a white or yellow petti to balance out your look!

We have a huge variety of 1950’s retro and pinup tropical prints as well as our amazing swimwear collaboration with Playful Promises! Browse more here and find your favourite vintage tropical design!



If you’re wanting to wear the signature colour for Valentine’s day, we have a variety of beautiful red pieces! We’re loving our casual yet cute Lorena plain top and Dolores vintage gingham top with their elasticated sleeves and neckline which can be worn both on and off the shoulder.
Our Dolores is even complete with heart shaped buttons rather than their classic domed shaped one. She features a sweet floral trim across the bust and back for an extra sweet 1950’s look. The Lorena comes in plain red, complete with a bow and can be paired with swing skirts for a fun and flirty vibe! No Valentine’s look is complete without red love hearts so add our velvet heart studs as a finishing touch to your outfit.
Add a pop of red glitter to your outfit with our Cross my heart shoulder bag! Made in a glitter encrusted PU and has plenty of room inside for carrying all the essentials!
You can also pair our Candy Heart Printed Tights from Pamela Mann with a little black dress for a romantic look this Valentine’s Day! The tights are covered with candy pink and red hearts tesselating diagonally across the legs and is such a cute edition to your wardrobe!  We’d recommend pairing them with our Naomi skater dress complete with a heart shaped buckle on her belt! Or for an extra pop of red use our Obi belt that ties around the waist in a neat little bow for added sweetness.

Still lost for gift ideas? Why not use our gift voucher and let your special someone pick their own perfect piece for Valentine’s?
And last of all, don’t forget to spread the love! 
Love the Collectif team
