Sometimes I miss the 90s. Don't get me wrong, I can't imagine being without my mobile phone, iPad or laptop these days but there was something just so...cool about what was available when I was growing up (and before, I know some of what I'm about to feature was earlier than that, but well, I wasn't here to remember it!). Find Me a Gift are bringing on a bout of nostalgia with their range of retro themed gifts this year...perfect for those who miss the "good old days".
|Personalised Mixtape Print- from £14.99. I'm a bit sad that nobody will ever make me a mix tape. An iTunes playlist just isn't the same as having something physical to treasure and get all romantic over is it?|
|As a child I remember begging for a "Mr Frosty" slush maker and was so jealous of my cousins who did have one. I was also a slush puppy addict so this Retro Slush Machine is right up my street. £59.99|
|Ahh VHS, remembering to set the machine to record a TV programme. Getting the tape all tangled (or worse, snapping it). The clunking noises it used to make. I don't think I miss those but this VHS notebook is still pretty damn cool. £12.99|
|Space Invaders. Before my time but still so awesome. This wallet and cufflinks set is only £9.99 and would be the perfect present for Dads, Uncles, Brothers and Boyfriends. I kinda wish I wore shirts.|
|Before I upgraded to a Nintendo (you know, the black and white screen and as big as a VHS job) I used to have a plastic tetris set that I was obsessed with. The obsession continued on screen and I dare say if given the game again now I would soon be hooked again. I am loving this light (£25.99) especially as you can move the pieces around and have it how you wish. I'd never leave this alone!|
