Retro gifts to cherish at The Contemporary Home...

As we hurtle ever further into a future of high tech gadgets and gizmos, it seems that gifts have become all about having the latest ‘thing’. Well, that’s not the case here at The Contemporary Home. From us, you can still buy something original for your nearest and dearest, and sidestep the technology rat race altogether. Our range of retro gifts harks back to simpler times, when life was full of wonder and more than a little whimsy…

So, where to begin? Well, of course, a lot depends on the person for whom you’re buying the gift. Are they arty, practical, a baker, a flower-arranger, a traveller, a writer, a medic? Only you will know! Whatever their personality, we have quite a selection of vintage and retro-feel goodies for you to choose from: from crackle-glazed vases to old-fashioned trinket pots; from nostalgic signs to enamel mugs and teapots, our great retro gifts are brimming with character. Choose wisely and you’re sure to make someone’s day – and all without a screen or power cable in sight!
