50 Nostalgic Gift Ideas

From 90's-Era Beauty to Modernized Instant Film Cameras

— December 25, 2017 — Fashion
Nostalgic gifts can be purchased for the young and old alike, and this year the 90s revival has brought about some retro items for consumers to enjoy.

90s fashion and beauty has been a big hit this year, with brands responding in kind by either redistributing products that were popular in this decade, or designing new products with the 90s as inspiration. Gifts associated with this emerging trend include the new all-white Buffalo sneakers, Forever 21's jelly slides, and Polly Pocket-lookalike purses.

Instant film cameras are another excellent gift this holiday season, particularly for those who have more artistic proclivities. An example of this is Lomography's 'Lomo Instant Square,' which fuses retro camera designs with modern capabilities.
