1920s and 1930s memorabilia gift ideas.
Great 20th Century Gifts from The Roaring Twenties and Art Deco period of the 1930's. We have a superb range of nostalgic gift Ideas that capture the essence of this influential era. The Roaring Twenties, or the 'Jazz Age', were the halcyon days of free living and extravagant style. This inter war period saw a flourish of new inventions, including the first working mechanical television by John Logie Baird in 1925. The silver screen made the step from silent films to 'Talkies' and saw the rise of movie superstars like Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy. More people were becoming the proud owners of a Motor Car and international travel on cruise liners became very fashionable. However, the Wall Street crash, in October 1929, was the harbinger to the end of prosperity across North America and Europe and the Thirties, as a result, was a tougher decade. With economic depression both home and abroad and the looming shadow of another war, towards the end of the decade, life for people living in this time certainly changed. However, it wasn't all bad! This decade saw the mass commercialisation of confectionery and the style and glamour of the Art Deco period was born. The 1930s also saw the introduction of the iconic VW beetle, a car loved so much it is still being manufactured today! Our nostalgic gifts evoke memories of the early part of the 20th Century and some of these will make unique 90th Birthday Gifts for your loved ones. Maybe you have a keen interest in this period, we have vintage household gifts, replica Gifts and much more, great items for the family, historians or as teaching aids for school projects.
