EZ GIFT PICKS: Retro Festive Gifts
When you mix pop culture with Christmas you get Retro Festive, a Canadian online retailer that sells quirky merchandise that speaks to our love of nostalgia. This website will help you shop for the lovers of kitschy paraphernalia, Christmas-themed shows and movies, and funny takes on recent online memes. If nothing else, you’ll get a kick out of some of the products (a Darth Vader Santa Claus toy–well, why not?).
The infamous leg lamp from the 1983 sleeper hit, A Christmas Story. Outside of the main protagonist’s mother advising him not to “shoot your eye out!” with his toy BB gun, this has to be one of the most memorable moments from the movie. Leg lamp, $14.99 – $274.99.
What this tree lacks in grandeur, it makes up for in spirit–no wait, it’s pretty lacking in the spirit department as well. It’s from A Charlie Brown Christmas and we all grew up watching and loving this TV movie, so we have nothing but love for this tree as well. Mini Charlie Brown tree, $12.99
You just might become the best new companion if you get a Dr. Who fan a dalek ornament. Dr. Who Christmas ornament collection, $7.99
Will Ferrell is making the rounds lately for Anchorman 2, but we still crack up more at the sight of him decked out in tights with a crazed twinkle in his eyes. Elf Son of a Nutcracker mug, $9.99
Try not to hum “Frosty the Snowman” when you see this bobble head. Just. Try. Frosty the Snowman Bobble Head, $19.99
Imagine sipping a festive bevvie from this very merry Moose punch set inspired by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Moose mugs and punch bowl, $149.99
This is the claymation Christmas story we’ll gladly watch year, after year (do you remember just how adorable it was when his nose shone so bright?). Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, $7.99 (for sets of 3)
