Nostalgic Gift Ideas For The Men In Your LifeMay 1, 2020
Growing up in our household meant that without fail, the hardest person to shop for was our father. Every Father’s Day, Christmas and on each one of his birthdays, we daughters ran around frantically trying to think up gift ideas for our humble father. Time and time again, I found myself giving him presents that never really seemed to capture how much I thought of him. By the time I had reached adulthood, he’d had every tool he was ever going to need and enough mugs to last a lifetime. If you are anything like me, you also understand how difficult buying gifts for the men in your life can be. It is often so hard to find a meaningful gift that really conveys how much you care. Fortunately, I have stumbled across some unique and nostalgic gift ideas that just about any man would appreciate.
The first on my list of nostalgic gift ideas can be found at radiospirits.com. This is a unique website that sells radio broadcasts from a number of shows which aired during the forties and fifties. From Superman to the Green Hornet, Radiospirits has something for just about every father or grandfather in America. Whether he was crazy over comics or comedies, Radiospirits is the place to go. Prices vary for each broadcast, depending on time increments, which range from 1 to 20 hour collections. Broadcasts are also offered on both cd and cassette and many packages include bonus items such as collector’s cards and other neat memorabilia. The nostalgic ambience of radio broadcast is a great way to take your father back to his own childhood.
Moviegoods.com is another great website riddled with nostalgic gift possibilities. This website contains thousands of movie posters for purchase and is a great service for anyone interested in movies. At Moviegoods, you can purchase a high quality reproduction photo from just about any movie, from any era. They have tons of classic and nostalgic movie posters from Sergio Leone’s “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” to John Sturges “The Great Escape”. Know your father’s favorite old movie? For about 15 bucks, you can purchase an 11″ x 17″ portal in time.
For the particularly nostalgic man, memoirsink.com is the way to go. They provide a great way to show tribute to any grandfather. Memoirsink creates memoirs from extensive interviews and other bits of personal information that you provide. If you’ve got the time, money and foresight, Memoirsink can create the ultimate nostalgic gift. The detail involved in each memoir is determined only by the amount of effort you are willing to put in and how much information is provided to the Memoirsink’s writers. The effort and thought put into such a gift is not likely to go unnoticed and will both surprise and impress most.
Finally, the last of my nostalgic gift ideas can be found at videoconversionexperts.com. Here you can convert all types of old footage onto DVDs. Whether your home videos were captured on 8mm, Super 8mm, or 16mm, Video Conversion Experts can most likely transfer the footage. Scour your attic for those nostalgic home videos of first birthdays, vacations and other family traditions. Or maybe you just want to restore some old photos or footage. Either way, let the Video Conversion Experts transform your father’s happiest memories. The results will be a tribute so great it will bring any father to tears.
But if you want to give a gift that is somewhat stylish, you may want to consider a minimalist wallet. Gone are the days when men’s wallets were big and bulky. Today, thin and small wallets are the hype and trend.
This holiday season, show your father or grandfather how much they really mean to you. Instead of that new bestseller, surprise them with something a little more nostalgic. You will be glad you did.
