Some people are impossibly hard to find presents for, can we all agree? Every family has at least one member who already seems to have everything. And yet that does not negate our wish to give them something meaningful. A gift that will emit a squeal of joy from the recipient – or perhaps a gruff squawk from one of the menfolk. Fortunately Vinterior is brimming with promising Christmas gift ideas. Among the best of these is a true classic: vintage glassware. Sophisticated yet fun, no adult does not enjoy drinking from a beautiful glass. We have come up with glassware for just about everyone: for him, for her, the wild party goer, the arty friend, even your grandparents (who probably used to rock those 1950s parties).
The best part is that vintage gifts are truly unique. So enjoy browsing Christmas gift ideas that no-one else will have thought of!
Christmas gifts for him
The menfolk are notoriously difficult to buy for. It’s a cliche for good reason! Fortunately, we might have something for them. Most likely, this won’t impress adolescent nephews but older members of the family will love them. Shoot a whisky on the rocks with these futuristic vintage tumblers. Not confident that teal is their favourite colour? Fret not. Discover other vintage tumblers here.
Christmas gifts for her
This soft salmon pink Art Deco set of glasses is, simply put, a really lovely gift for your missus. Whether sharing a cosy nightcap with friends or when hosting the in laws for Sunday lunch, this is the set of glasses to bring out. The blush pink is feminine without being twee and will make for a sophisticated but thoughtful gift to last a lifetime. Plus, she will love stirring up new cocktails in the decanter – beats the Pyrex every time!
Christmas gifts for your grandparents
Nostalgia abounds at this time of year and vintage glasses will unleash many memories of parties past. Especially so for the grandfolk in your family. Grandparents may have some old dusty glasses knocking around somewhere but they will treasure a set that comes from you and reminds them that the good days are not over yet. We are particularly drawn to this unusual yet stylish set of 1960s Polish wine glasses with a beautiful amber gradient. Perfect for a catch up with their grown up grandchildren!
A Christmas gift for your arty friend
Your arty friend will happily sip tea – or coffee – from these vintage cobalt blue tea glasses. A matching set of cups and saucers is great fun to pull out for a playful after-dinner party coffee with friends. This beautiful rich blue certainly makes these vintage glasses an eye catching option. A great Christmas gift idea for an aunty too!
A Christmas gift for the party-goer friend
This set of 1950s vintage shot glasses is certainly like no other. The quirky boot shape will have your friend giggling as they tip back a tipple of something festive. Not quite right for your party-goer friends? How about your green-fingered grandmother? Probably anyone who spends time pottering around the garden in their wellies would get a hoot out of using these. Or maybe you’ll find something else in this fabulous collection of vintage shot glasses!
