2011 Holiday Gift Guide Day 3 - Retro Planet Affordable Gift Guide



Once again it has come time to bless all my readers with another fun review of RetroPlanet.com!  In case your not familiar with them let me introduce you to one of the most unique stores on the internet...Retro Planet

Have someone on your list that has everything or is extremely hard to buy for?  Or maybe your just looking for the perfect gift to buy someone special on your holiday shopping list?  Well then Retro Planet is your answer!  Retro Planet offers something for any and everyone no matter how young or old they are.  From Retro inspired tin signs and furniture,  to old fashioned candy,  and just about everything in between,  Retro Planet has you covered! 

 No matter who your shopping for Retro Planet is sure to have a nice selection of products to suit just about anyones fancy,  no matter if your shopping for your parents, children,  teenagers,  or maybe even yourself!  Right now Retro Planet is offering a helpful section that includes fabulous gift ideas for her,  him,  unique gifts, Christmas decor,  stocking Stuffers, and gifts under $25.  While shopping on Retro Planet I was able to find something for everyone left on my holiday shopping list,  take a look around their site and I am sure you will too!  Below you will find some of my selections along with some great ideas for Christmas shopping on Retro Planet.


GIFTS FOR MEN
Retro Planet offers an awesome selection of Gifts for Him including clocks,  mugs,  unique gifts,  and my favorite - Tin Signs.  Tin Signs make great items for men to collect or display inside their man cave because lets face it every man needs a place to spend "man" time and what better way to decorate your "Man Cave" then with tin signs from Retro Planet.  Their selection of tin signs is absolutely amazing and once you see it I am sure you will agree.  From Pin Ups and Adult Humor to Gas Station,  Oil,  & Garage,  I am sure you will find something for basically any man that loves tin signs. 

 My uncle is really into tin signs especially Auto, Motorcycle, & Tractor Metal Signs.  One of the things I always remember about my uncle is his passion about cars from the past,  well basically because they were cars from his time.  While he liked a broad variety of cars,  he was always most fond of Pontiac GTO's,  so I searched through their selection of Pontiacs GTO cars to find the perfect sign for him.  I wasnt quite sure which model was his favorite,  so I decided to be safe and go with the Pontiac GTO American Classic Metal Sign.  This particular sign features five different GTO models in various colors and years.  The sign reads "GTO American Classic and is 17W x 11H inches.  It is going to look perfect displayed in his garage. 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the GTO American Classic Metal Sign from Retro Planet for only $11.89.

Check out some of their other awesome signs for Men,  Teenagers,  or Women!  Below are a few that caught my eye,  just a few because believe me their are a bunch that seemed to catch my eye! 


The Dancing Snacks would make an excellent addition to any home theatre, restaurant, or kitchen.


How cute is this festive circular tin sign for Christmas!


I am sure you all know by now that I am a huge Betty Boop fan so of course this sign caught my eye as well! 

You may want to check out their assortment of discounted tin sign packs which contain minor dings and scratches,  but for the price you can't beat them! 




UNIQUE GIFT-HUMOROUS GIFT For Men Or Women


I love Retro Planets selection of unique humorous gifts,  sure to fit anyone with a good sense of humor - such as myself.  While shopping on their site you will find mint tins,  kitchen towels,  mugs, signs,  keychains, magnets all printed with hilariously funny sayings.  You will also find a lovely assortment of unique items that will take you back in time. 

As I was browsing one of my favorite sections on Retro Planet (their salt & pepper shakers) I came across a set of salt & pepper shakers that I knew would be perfect for my older sister.  The Outhouse Salt & Pepper Shakers  are something that would be right up her alley and I'm sure she will appreciate the humor in them!  This set of ceramic salt & pepper shakers each feature a brown outhouse with a green roof, one reads " Full of S",  while the other one reads "Full of P".  Not only do they make a great addition to your cabin or camping trip,  they also make a great funny everyday item.

Be sure to check out their other large selection of salt & pepper shakers.  Not only do they make great table decorations,  but they are also fun to collect.  I recently started collecting salt & pepper shakers and plan on keeping them for many years to come.

BUY IT:  You can purchase the Outhouse Salt & Pepper Shaker Set for only $8.99.  At less than $10.00 this makes a great gift! 


CHILDREN'S GIFTS


Go back to the 50's,  60's,  or 70's with Retro Planets selection of fun old fashioned toys.  Remember the Original Metal Slinky,  well you can find it on Retro Planet!  How about Toy Cap Gun Revolvers,  because they offer those too!  I couldn't believe it when I came across the Magic Cymbal Monkey Toy because I use to own the same toy when I was a young girl.  In fact,  it just so happened to be one of my favorite toys! 




It is so exciting that the same toy that brought me so much enjoyment as a child can now bring my child the same enjoyment.  Not to mention the fact that I have been trying to find this particular toy for quite some time now.  The Magic Cymbal Monkey Toy hops and chirps as he plays the cymbals.  With an adorable face,  red shirt and hat,  and cymbals in hands,  this toy will be sure to capture your childs imagination and have him entertained for hours.  He can be somewhat loud,  but as a mom I have learned that the noisy toys come with having children. 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the Cymbal Playing Monkey Toy at Retro Planet on sale right now for only $12.99.

STOCKING STUFFERS


Who says good stocking stuffers has to be expensive!  Retro Planet offers a wonderful selection of stocking stuffers at affordable prices. Their selection of stocking stuffers are so affordable that they start at only 0.69 cents.  To get some great stocking stuffer ideas be sure to visit their Unique Holiday Stocking Stuffers section.  Another great idea is to check out their current clearance section for cheap toys that would fit perfectly in a stocking.  I was lucky enough to come upon a Racer X Bendable Figure that I know my son's will love,  which one to give it to is the only problem! 

Candy also makes a fantastic stocking stuffer and rest assured Retro Planet carries plenty of that too!  Their selection of candy will be sure to take you back to your childhood,  it sure did mine!  As soon as I came upon the Take - Out Candy Carton Gift Set I knew it would make a perfect stocking stuffer for my oldest son.  It comes in a cute little chinese style take out container with a metal wire handle and filled with plenty of yummy penny candy. This carton is filled full of some of your favorite penny candy including Bit O Honey,   Smarties,  Double Bubble,  and many other tasty candy.  Besides using it as a stocking stuffer it also makes a fabulous favor for any birthday or holiday gathering.

BUY IT:  You can purchase a Take - Out Candy Carton Gift Set for only $2.99.
