Vintage Gift Basket Ideas--How to make a gift out of Vintage Kitchen Towels Tablecloths Aprons Potholders(pot holders)

Updated on February 23, 2013

Loving the Vintage Look

Have you ever wondered what a nice gift would be for a person who loves vintage, or the vintage look? How about a gift basket filled with kitchen linens that are in the vintage style? To me, original vintage is best, but if you can't find any, or you prefer to buy new, then there are many vintage look items available these days.

Amazon offers tons of choices for this type of linens, including the following:

Vintage tablecloths

Vintage look tablecoths are just beautiful--they come in many bold colors to match any kitchen. They come in patterns such as flowers, themed, kitchen appliances, ethnic decorations, to crocheted, woven,  or quilt-look.

You can choose from different sizes usually, for that perfect fit, and some offer color choices.

Towels and potholders are great ideas, also!

 Vintage style towels and potholders or oven mitts are a beautiful addition to a gift basket, and to your kitchen itself.  It's amazing how little things like these brighten up and really add to the charm of a kitchen decor.  They are also offered in many styles, colors, and fabrics--so you are sure to find something your giftee will love!  

You can even buy a potholder making kit, and let the person make their own in a pattern they love, or it would also be a fun thing to let your kids do, so they can be in on the gift-giving, and feel proud that they made these personally for the giftee. 

How about a vintage style apron?

What better item to add to your kitchen gift set than a vintage style apron? If you can't find a real vintage apron, then these are the next best thing! They come in half aprons(from the waist down) to the full type, which tie or loop around the neck, with a bibbed front and skirt, which protects much better than the half aprons, and are very practical at the same time, if your giftee entertains a lot, and needs to protect her clothing.

Not to mention--they make a wonderful conversation piece, because they are so pretty, and useful, at the same time. What more can you ask for?

Like the other items, these come in a variety of syles--it will be hard to pick just one!

Vintage style napkins add a nice touch to any kitchen

Another idea are vintage or vintage style cloth napkins--they come in so many styles and patterns, and would look beautiful at any meal. You can choose from plain to fancy--whatever your giftee's style is, you are sure to find something they will love, and use on an everyday basis, or bring out when they have guests, for that special touch.

You can also buy matching tablecloths and napkins in the vintage look--there are sets available on Amazon, also.

The choices are endless!

These are only a few suggestions for a vintage style gift basket--there are so many other items offered on to choose from, that you are sure to find those perfect choices.

For a gift basket, there are many containers you can use. A wicker picnic basket would be beautiful, and old vintage bowl...a large cookie jar(old or retro)...even a canister set to hide gifts in each separate one to surprise your giftee. The options are endless, and think of how much fun it would be to put this together, and how the person who receives it will enjoy going through it!
