Holiday Gift Guide for the Dreamer

It’s time for a brand new holiday gift guide! You only have 8 days until Christmas…time to get shopping and wrapping! Do you have a family member or BFF that always has his or her head in the clouds, daydreaming about the infinite possibilities out there – whether its adventures, creative ideas, or inspiring storylines? These people have huge imaginations and wanderlust spirits, constantly thinking up their next trip so they can experience all that the world has to offer. They also have a love for the vintage and the classic, dreaming about the good old days like Owen Wilson’s character in Midnight in Paris. They refuse to live an ordinary, dull life and instead believe life is a journey of exciting adventures and creative ideas. They are artists, writers, travelers…they are THE DREAMERS! Welcome to your holiday gift guide….


All the dreamers out there love capturing their travel moments, especially when they can make these moments into physical memories. Try an instant film camera – they allow dreamers to print out their favorite moments right away and hang them up around their homes so they can daydream about these memories all day long.

The mirrorless camera is compact, making it easy to travel with around the world. However, this compact digital camera also takes very professional, high-quality pictures similar to a DSLR. You can change the lens and the camera even has its own WIFI so you can upload pictures to your phone instantly. I studied abroad and brought this camera with my EVERYWHERE. My absolute favorite.

The dreamer always is inspired by the good old days of an earlier decade. They love making vintage things modern again. Vinyl records are making a huge come back. Get them a few of their favorite records on vinyl (even if they don’t have a record player yet, they make for a cool home decoration).

Mobile Projector

Dreamers have a thing for the old school… like classic black & white films. Instead of watching their favorite classic movie, why not watch a new one in an old fashioned way? This mobile projector pairs to your smartphone, laptop, or tablet so you can stream movies and videos on any blank surface.

Vintage Styled Hardcover Book Collections

Nothing screams “Dreamer” than a vintage looking hardcover book collection. Think Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stein…. the 1920s are for the dreamers after all. Or try a modern book collection in a classic looking style. They can read the books and also put them out for decoration on a bookshelf. A bit of a pricier gift, but it’s timeless and definitely worth it.

Wireless Headphones

You can find dreamers constantly lost in their own thoughts. That is why they always wear headphones pretty much everywhere and especially while traveling. Headphones block out all the noise and distractions and allow them to get lost in their imaginations. Try a vintage style set of headphones that are wireless so no one will know if the headphones are playing music or if your favorite dreamer just needs a noise canceller from all the surrounding noise.

SHOP: Master & Dynamic Wireless Over-Ear Headphones – $549

SHOP: BOSE SoundLink Around Ear Bluetooth Headphones -$199
