I’m old, so there aren’t many things I “need” anymore. But for Holiday 2016, here are a few ideas with “real people” appeal. Stuff I bought for myself this year. Not necessarily “retro” or “renovation” oriented, but hey. Note: All the links in this story are affiliate links.
What is more classic than family and friends sitting around the kitchen playing board games? This Thanksgiving, we were introduced to Catan. It was super fun — I adored it! And when I got home, I bought the whole getup, the basic set and a bunch of the extensions.

I am also kind of obsessed with playing Connect 4 right now.
I bought this for myself and LOVE it. I’m calling it “retro”, because I spent my college junior year abroad, 1979-1980, in Madrid, Spain. There, they put steamed milk in their morning coffee. Steamed milk makes your coffee all that more delicious. When I visited my brother this autumn, he had one of these Nespresso milk steamers, so I bought the same kind. I’ve been using it daily since October and yummmmm, my coffee is betttttttter than ever.

Okay, so this next one, I don’t have. But it intrigues me. As I mentioned at the outset, I am old. This could actually be quite useful.
