From Portable Vintage Speakers to 80s Landline Telephones

With the arrival of every new year comes an assortment of new products, but rather than looking ahead, these retro gift ideas turn to the past for inspiration.

These nostalgic gift ideas take after the form and functions of items from days past. This includes vintage speaker designs, sneakers, as well as a variety of home decor that seems to come from a simpler time.

While many of these designs emulate the past in appearance only, others incorporate technology of today to permit familiar activities to be carried out. A perfect example of this is the new Holga Digital camera, which takes film-style photos and saves them to an SD card. Products like these provide the best of both worlds, indulging nostalgia, while also keeping up with the technology of the times.
