How many times does a day like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a special birthday or anniversary roll around and you think to yourself, “What am I going to her? She has everything?!?!”

5 Reasons to Gift Vintage
One of kind people deserve one of kind gifts - nothing says “You mean the world to me,” than something so unique that it’s one of kind and can’t be easily found again, if ever. Even a reproduction, won’t do -- why buy a copy when you can have the original?

History and Sustainability - Vintage gifts reflect the timelessness of your relationship, it is a peek into your past together. Vintage gifts also reflect a person’s commitment to being together forever.
Starting a collection! If you have ever struggled to find the perfect gift for someone, vintage is the answer.

If they love to entertain why not gift a vintage platter for a birthday, at a later time you could gift some vintage serving pieces to go with it? Jewelry always makes a timeless memorable gift, you could easily gift someone a beautiful necklace and then at a later time gift a matching piece like a brooch or earrings to go with it.
