Christmas Gift Guide: New fits for all the family

Dec 15th 2019

‘Tis the season for fresh garms! Stuck on what to buy your family this year? You need look no further as Brag are here to help…

According to results from a YouGov survey, the UK is set to waste 60 million presents this Christmas - 60 MILLION! Of course we get it, as the 25th creeps closer we are all guilty of panic-buying or getting a bit over-excited in the shopping centre, but if we only buy things we know people want or need, we could really make a difference in reducing that number.

Our family gift-guide brings together a curated list of vintage, pre-loved and retro items that are bound to bring smiles to their faces. From siblings to grandparents, we’ve got you covered and these are gifts that won’t cost the earth!

The Golf-obsessed dad with all the gear, but no idea…

We all know the bloke and who can blame him? His kids are old enough that they can probably feed and entertain themselves, he’s semi-retired, so what to do with all this free time... I know! Find a hobby that requires as much stuff as possible, otherwise known as Golf. Your dad will tell you, it’s not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle, and he’s not wrong. Aside from equipment, outfit choices are vital in separating the winners from the losers. But this is what makes the golf-obsessed dad the perfect target for Christmas presents, what better way to help your dad look like a seasoned golf pro than by kitting him out in vintage gear?

The “I’m a cool mum” mum…

This is a mum that isn’t quite ready to settle into a life of cardigans and capri pants, and to that we say, fair enough hun. Yes, maybe sometimes she dresses a little young for her age but who wouldn’t love to look that good in a strapless dress? We wouldn’t have her any other way, but if you are a little worried about it getting out of hand, why not intersect that situation by buying her some Christmas garms?

We know that mums will love our range of denim. Not only do we stock timeless pieces, but they are pieces that have literally stood the test of time! We’ve picked out some of our vintage favourites below, but there’s lots more to be found on our site.

The brother who would much rather sit on his Xbox than talk to any of you…

Don’t worry, we know you’re much more interesting than any Xbox will ever be, but for now there is no competition in your brother’s mind. While you wait for the obsession to run its course, Why not treat him to a fresh look for all the hours he spends in his gamer chair?

Comfort is key when you’re defending the country from the safety of your room, so why not kit him out in some of our joggers? From Nike to Champion, we have loads of brands and styles to choose from, the only worry is whether he will want to take them off once he’s put them on…

If you’d prefer to get him something that would look great beyond his bedroom, why not buy him a fresh shirt for Christmas? This may seem like a bit of a mum move, but wouldn’t you rather take it upon yourself to buy him a vintage Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger?

The sister who swears “it’s not a phase”...

It’s safe to say we have all been there, but we have to thank our childhood phases for shaping us into the well-rounded citizens we are today, right?? With this in mind, it's time to be the supportive sibling we know you are and find a vintage piece to fit the phase! From 90’s grunge to gothic, skater to festival chick we have loads on offer. To make things EVEN easier we have categorised these trends and loads more in our menu...we are just too good to you!

The Grandparents that are NEVER warm enough…

Tired of sweating on Christmas day? We are too, but how can anyone ignore the incessant murmurs of a chilly Grandparent? Despite wearing several layers, two scarves and that curious shawl Granny loves to whack out on Christmas day, you will still witness the overly-dramatic shivers and quiet whisper: “Oh, dear would you go and check the heating’s on?” Being the incredible grandchild you are, you waste no time in running to the thermostat, naruto style for speed and efficiency, but no matter how many times you check it, it’s never warm enough. How can we stop this madness?

Get your Grandparents clothing that will ACTUALLY keep them warm. Does this even exist? Of course it does! Clothes made from wool are the warmest you can get, and luckily for you we stock a range of retro and vintage items made from wool or a wool blend - from L.L Bean to Woolrich, it’s time to save your grandparents from those festive chills, leaving more time for you all to enjoy your day.

Happy shopping and a very Merry Christmas from the Brag Vintage team x
