Tacky Cool Retro Things for the Vintage Girl’s Bathroom


These ideas for gifts for a vintage girl’s bathroom live somewhere between being tacky and being cool.

… depending on who you ask.

I’ve done a number of posts on ideas for gifts for the vintage girl. Since this blog is devoted to vintage beauty, I try to keep the gifts related to the same subject. Sometimes they are beautiful, elegant ideas like my post about buying milk glass to use as containers on the vintage vanity. Some of the gift ideas are a little less elegant, like the elvis hair brush.

But regardless, they are always inspired by my love of retro beauty things.

I hope you find something here you never thought of that is everything you ever wanted. We all need some fresh ideas sometimes.

Idea #1 – Every girl needs a little dish that she can throw her bobby pins and watch into at the end of the day and this boomerang dish is just the ticket.

Idea #2 – Pink Flamingos in the bathroom…perfect. This wall decal comes in a 2 foot tall and 3 foot tall version.

Idea #3 – Sometimes you just need a pretty place to hide all the little things that are on the counter like this world class junk box. And because it is tin, it won’t warp from the steam in the bathroom.

Idea #4 – I own 3 robes. One is for cold weather and the other 2 are beautiful Asian print kimono types and this coat rack is a perfect place to hang them next to the shower.

Idea #5 – This pink Cadillac shelf is a little higher price point, but it would be a lovely place to put pretty perfume bottles.

I know some people would look at these items and gag from the tacky, but some find joy from the kitsch of it, like me. 🙂 Wouldn’t you agree?

  1. I’m kind of amused by the title being for a girl’s bathroom, because the bathroom at my dad’s is themed to Elvis, and the guitar hooks and Cadillac shelf would be something right up his alley! lol
