The Best Vintage Gift Ideas, Just In Time For The Holidays

Anna Brockway, Co-Founder and CMO

“For me Christmas shopping starts January 2! I keep a little pile of things I pick up all year. When I see something, I pounce! It’s really fun come December to rediscover what I’ve tucked away and see whom I have already ticked off the list! Not so subtle hint: I am really hoping that MY HUSBAND NOTICES the swan tureen on my list here! Growing up my mom had a similar one (it sadly broke in a move) and I was just mesmerized by it as a child!  I thought it was the prettiest thing in the world. With three kids at home, I think we could have a lot of fun with this one.”


Ashley Williams, Director of Merchandising

“For gifting this year I’m really inspired by original art and ceramics. Commissioning works by your favorite artists/artisans or gifting a made-to-order piece is a great way to give a personal and one-of-a-kind gift to your loved ones. I also love giving gifts that people wouldn’t ordinarily buy for themselves – to me, it’s about delighting your loved ones and giving them something that would bring them joy.”

Noel Fahden, V.P. Merchandising

“Especially when gifting for vintage aficionados, I try to find things that are especially hard to come by—if I can save them time by finding something unusual, then that’s even better! This trompe l’oeil plate by Tiffany fits the bill: these plates are rarely available, bring a sense of whimsy, and will make the recipient smile.”

Ale Bennett, Associate Buyer

“The great thing about shopping on Chairish for Christmas gifts is that you’ll without question be able to find something thoughtful and unique for everyone on your list (and a little something for yourself, too!)”

Katy Cannon, Buyer

“For better or worse, I tend to take a ‘one for you, one for me’ approach to gifting… might have to snag one of these for myself!”

Emma Neville, Merchandising Manager

“For a memorable gift for my fellow foodie-in-crime, I’m planning to pair this vintage oyster plate with a day trip to local Hog Island Oyster Co. The drinks set is perfect for my crusade to bring back the old school sofa fountain drink in 2018. This retro Italian tumbler set is number one on my holiday lust list! #hostessgoals.”
