Mod Bettie aka Donna Scott has got to be one of the most thoughtful and creative vendors when it comes to merchandising.  Here she is sharing her top gift giving tips and tricks for how to delight anyone’s Holidays with a little bit of vintage:

It’s time to start thinking about vintage gift giving and as usual, you have a long list, right? Let me pass along my top quick and easy and memorable vintage gifting ideas so you can check some of those names off your list- pronto!

1.Vintage Trays and Tins

Everyone loves to receive your baked goods around the holidays…why not gift them in or on a reusable vintage tin or tray? It makes a beautiful and more memorable presentation than tissue or bags and can be used continually throughout the holidays!

2. Vintage Ornaments 

Of course I love these for their traditional use on the tree but they make such a heartwarming presentation when attached to gifts, used at table place settings/ or centerpieces, around the buffet table or even given as party favors throughout the holidays.

Ornaments can be used to decorate gifts and add a vintage touch.

3.Vintage Mugs

These make an adorable presentation when gifted with tea, hot cocoa, candy or vintage linens. Vintage soup mugs can be gifted with gourmet crackers or bags of soup mix.

Dried soup with a vintage mug and vintage napkins makes a great gift!

4. Vintage Cocktail Glasses

Want to bring the best hostess gift at your next party? Vintage Champagne coupes with a bottle of bubbly will do the trick, every time…trust me! See also: vintage pilsners or mugs with a local craft beer, or some swanky lowballs with a favorite liquor- both an equally fab option.
