What to buy the mid-mod man in your life this holiday season? Mr. Retro Renovation has Everything, so it is exceptionally hard. I’ve been prowling around all week and have come up with a few things. But, I need help bad. My guy would love this mid-century decorative tile from bungalowbill.com for his home office, I bet.
Bungalow Bill has a beautiful selection of Danish Modern and other mid-century tile. A regular commenter on the blog, he says that if you mention “Retro Renovation” he will provide free shipping. Thanks, Bill.
Continuing my hunt… I’m considering these Munsingwear Balbriggan pajamas, tailored from the original 1950s pattern, available from Vermont Country Store. Vermont Country Store, the motherlode of items reproduced from original 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s patterns and molds, also has cotton flannel pajamas — the kind with feet — as onesies or two-piecers. In case you have not heard, it gets wicked cold here in Massachusetts, so DH might like those, too.
Hubs is a history teacher and sports nut, too, so I think he would like this 2009 biography of Satchel Paige. History + Sports = Work + Play in this house.
But…How sad is this three-item idea list? Okay, readers. What else should I consider for the man-gift gift-list 2009? Guys, what are you hoping Santa leaves under your aluminum Xmas tree?
