Blast from the Past: Throwback Gifts to Give
Let's all agree now that the '70s, '80s, and '90s were pretty great. Reminiscing about the good ol' days around a coffee table with friends is one way to keep the memories alive, but what about all those items you tossed out long ago? Bring them back to life with these modern twists, and you're sure to be crowned best gift-giver in town.
Jump on the wayfarer trend with these Ray Ban-style Zeal Kennedy sunglasses, and opt for the bright colors from the '90s that we all dig so much. The red nose pads and temple tips add extra style and comfort, while the polarized lenses offer extra protection for runners.
Hello, Old Sport
Classic literature is having a moment, from the latest remake of Romeo + Juliet to The Great Gatsby. Help a friend show her fan-dom wherever she goes with an Out of Print iPhone 5/5S hard shell phone case featuring one of six classic covers. Haven't upgraded to the latest Apple phone? No problem — choose from four titles for the iPhone 4/4S.
Turn Back the Beat
Put down the iPod and return to the sweet sounds of vinyl. The Cruiser Turntable has a built-in speaker system that plugs directly into modern devices to throw it back in style. For those who still have Dad's old records — or enjoy hitting up the local record store — the portable, briefcase-style table works on three speeds to listen to the old school tunes in their purest form.
There are some pretty sweet arcade games on your iPhone and iPad — we're talking Pac-Man, Frogger, and Temple Run — but those tiny little keys aren't doing anyone any favors. Whip out the pocketable iCade 8-Bitty, a wireless retro-styled game controller to play like a pro.
Capture life's greatest moments right away on the Polaroid PIC 300 Instant Film Camera instead of resorting to blurry iPhone pics. Not only does it skip the time-suck of waiting for pictures to upload, it also prevents the eternal question of "Who's going to send me a copy?"
