When Mad Men Meet Christmas – Vintage Gifts for the Holiday Season
SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 5, 2012) - It's true that the hottest gifts this holiday will focus on technology including iPads, iPhones and Kindles; but even technophiles love classic gifts that were beloved in their first release even decades ago. Knowing that the classics never go out of style, the gift specialists at FranklinPlanner have compiled a list of their top gift ideas that are vintage in styling, but updated for the modern user.
Among the vintage classics in FranklinPlanner's 2012 Holiday Gift Guide include:
Vintage Leather Messenger Bags by FranklinCovey (MSRP: $249.95) - One can imagine this bag being loaded on a steamship bound for Europe, or carrying artifacts from an archeological expedition. FranklinCovey updated this buckles-and-pockets design with signature organizational features, and added padded compartments to hold and protect a 15.4" laptop as well as a 10" tablet.
Etch a Sketch Case for iPad 2 & New iPad by Headcase (MSRP: $39.95) - Everyone loves Etch-a-Sketch! Now designed for the iPad 2 and new iPad, this impact-resistant plastic case features windows providing access all switches, ports, and buttons. With rubber feet and a felt backing, devices remain secure from scratches and slipping off the table, while the built-in kickstand accommodates viewing at a variety of angles.
Peanuts Portfolio Case for iPad 2 & New iPad by iLuv (MSRP: $49.95) -- This plush portfolio case adds lasting protection to the iPad 2 and new iPad, with a unique twist. Its design allows several tilt positions in portrait or landscape for a customized view, and the iconic design reminds recipients not to take life too seriously.
Commemorative Leather Edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (MSRP: $84.95) - Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top-seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. This limited edition life-changing book is wrapped in genuine calfskin for a soft touch and quality that lasts for years.
Dr. Seuss Themed 16-Month Calendar by Graphique de France (MSRP: $14.95) - "Do you like to plan ahead? Yes I do, CEO Fred." Come to think of it, we'll leave the clever rhymes to Dr. Suess - which show up throughout this eye-catching, 16 month wall calendar.
Classic Century Gold-Filled Ballpoint Pen & Pencil Set by Cross (MSRP: $170.00) - This icon of American design and innovation is the choice of successful movers and shakers since 1946. Generations later, passionate fans remain loyal to the iconic silhouette, while trendsetters appreciate its authenticity. The 10-karat gold filled/rolled gold finish is preferred over gold plate for its higher gold content and lasting beauty.
