Out of the Past - 2012 Classic Movie Gift Guide

It's that time of year again! If you have a classic movie fanatic in your life, you know the know who has everything and is impossible to shop for, here are some cool gift ideas. I have not included DVDs or Blu-Rays because we are all familiar with that trepidation that precedes gift buying, when you wonder whether the recipient has the gift already or not. I have listed below some really unique gift ideas that your loved one will probably not already have.

 Enjoy and happy holidays!


Make sure your image is at least 234 X 490 and that your design has a blank space at the top left (the above image is inverted).


For that fan of The Women (1939) . Just make sure it doesn't come with a one-way ticket to Reno, Nevada!

Because everyone needs one of these in their homes.


They can double as a dress. Just watch Gone with the Wind (1939) for inspiration.


That gentleman in your life will look as good as Robert Walker in The Strangers on a Train (1951)

Williams-Sonoma - $89.95

I'm sure they'll do a much better job at making coffee with this gadget than Tess Harding (Katharine Hepburn) did in Woman of the Year (1942)

Yellow Raincoat

For that special person who gets that glorious feeling to sing in the rain. Make them happy again!

Ray-Ban RB4164 Sunglasses
$94.98 (sale price)

For that conniving person who needs to hide the evil behind their eyes with a pair of sunglasses.
I wish Kate Gabrielle's print of Leave Her to Heaven (1945) was still available!

UPDATE: The above print is available at Kate's society6 store

It's pricey, but I would like that Maltese falcon statue, provided I'm not swept in some mystery a long with it! :-)


OMG, the Maltese Falcon is all I want! :)
The shoes are a good idea: I have a pair of flats in black and white that remember me of tap dance. These shoes are actually known in my house as "Fred Astaire shoes". By the way, I'm painting my nail jungle red as I read this post!

Nikki McKim said...

This is fabulous!! I want Jungle Red Nail Polish. I Loved everything about this post!!

Citizen Screen said...

GREAT STUFF! How creative. Love this! I want everything!


Raquel Stecher said...

Terry - I think this one is a more reasonable buy than the one in the film! That one came at a much greater cost. :-)

Raquel Stecher said...

Le - Oh yes, Fred Astaire always had nice shoes. And how swell! I love a nice red nail polish. It's very striking. :-)

Raquel Stecher said...

Nikki - I worked so hard on this post so your comment and Aurora's just made my day! Thank you.

Raquel Stecher said...

Thank you Aurora! I really appreciate your nice comment.

I was watching 'The Maltese Falcon' recently and I thought how cool it would be to have my own falcon...

Giselle said...

Love the Maltese Falcon but my favorite item on this list is the Hollywood and the Ivy Look coffee table book. I could probably spend hours looking through it. :P

kate gabrielle said...

Thank you so much for including me Raquelle!! And I wish that falcon statue wasn't so expensive.. that would be such an amazing gift for my dad. I wonder if it's something I could DIY ;)

ps. Gene Tierney lives on in my society6 store! :) http://society6.com/kategabrielle/gene_Print

Raquel Stecher said...

I love how the Universe works that way!

Raquel Stecher said...

Giselle - That book is quite spectacular. I hope to review it soon!

Raquel Stecher said...

Kate - You're welcome. Thanks for the link! I updated my post to include it so that people can get that fabulous Gene Tierney print. Beside the Norma Shearer painting you did for me, that one is my favorite.
