As you all know, I am a collector. I drag all kids of treasures home I find while traveling, as I shared with you in this post. My primary addiction…..Vintage Christmas. I LOVE ALL OF IT! Flocked reindeer, blow molds, felt hangings, Shiny Brite ornaments! I have tubs and tubs and tubs. But, if you don’t want to go hog-wild with the retro Christmas, but still yearn for a little Vintage Christmas in your own celebrations, what to do? Today, with the help of Etsy, I’m going to show you Vintage Christmas Wrapping Paper, Handmade Christmas Tags, and Mid Century Modern Christmas inspired gifts, including Face Masks!. There are many ways you can incorporate Vintage Christmas easily, without needing to rent a storage unit for all your goodies….not that there’s anything wrong with that!
The fine print: I am an Esty Affilitate, and might make a small commission from qualified purchases, which will not impact your price, but will help support my Blog, so thank you!
Vintage Christmas Wrapping Paper
The easiest way to add a little Vintage Christmas flair is by choosing Vintage Christmas wrapping paper with vintage images. I found six choices that are darling, and would look so happy underneath the Christmas Tree. Click on the images below to go straight to the Etsy store selling each style.

Mid Century Modern Christmas
These days, Mid Century Modern Christmas is wildly popular! As I have shown you, there are darling Christmas Wrapping Paper designs with a MCM flair. And there are many Handmade Christmas Tags that also have a fun Mid Century Modern Christmas vibe.
One of the aspects of Etsy I love, is discovering creative small businesses, that apply a Mid Century Modern Christmas aesthetic to many different products. Talk about fun gifts! Here’s a sampling:
Vintage Christmas: The Real Deal
OK….if you REALLY want some true Vintage, here’s some ideas…and let me say this. I do not collect Vintage because of what each item is worth. I collect whatever brings me joy and makes me smile, so I suggest not worrying about what something is worth…get it because you love it!
Vintage Christmas tea towels are really cute, and an inexpensive way to add retro flair to your home. Be sure and check the condition before you buy. They are typically used, so there might be a stain or two. Does not bother me, but that might bother you. You might even want to add a monogram to modern-it-up!
I also love to have lots of Christmas candy dishes sitting around my house. I like Lefton, which was popular in the 1970’s and Holt Howard, which was at its most popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Etsy really is an endless source for inspiration, so have fun searching, and supporting creative small business owners who can make your Christmas a very Merry Christmas!!!!
