Vintage Hardware and Plumbing Fixtures: Holiday Gift Ideas that Keep on Giving and Look Good Doing So

Let’s face it; most gifts given are used up, forgotten, or out of style within six months. Finding a gift that will be appreciated for years often times calls for thinking outside the box. Shop 4 Classics does not sell scented soaps or candles but does specialize in vintage home hardware and plumbing fixtures featuring timeless designs and quality construction that is designed and warranted to last for years of trouble free use. It is understandable that antique reproduction hardware or plumbing fixtures do not come to mind when creating your gift list, so consider the below list of unique alternative gift ideas as inspiration before settling on that basket of overpriced toiletries.

Hearth & Kitchen Hardware Accent Items
Gatherings of family and friends for special meals define the holiday season. Shop 4 Classics offers a number of unique hardware items for the hearth and kitchen. Cast iron stovetop steamers with potpourri humidifies and fills your home with holiday scents. Shop 4 Classics collection of stovetop steamers includes many with colorful porcelain coatings and novel designs. Cast iron trivets provide a safe place to sit hot pots and pans. Like the stovetop steamers, our trivets are available in a variety of unique designs and many are available with colorful porcelain coatings.


Exterior Home Hardware Accent Items
Used to announce the arrival of invited guests or surprise Christmas carolers alike, a gift of a decorative doorbell button or door knocker can offer a unique and stylish welcome to visitors and introduce them to the home’s distinct character. A new set of bronze or copper house numbers make a thoughtful gift for those who moved into a new home during the past year. A wall or post mount mailbox can serve as a creative gift basket for gift certificate envelopes and smaller gift packages.



Decorative Cast Iron and Bronze Vent Covers
Do you really want to see a surprised look upon opening your gift this year? Heavy cast iron and bronze vent covers will almost certainly be a surprise and make particularly smart gifts for those who routinely try to lift and shake their gifts before opening. Just like giving a gift of trousers, you have to know the proper widths and lengths before giving vent covers as gifts. We highly recommend reading Shop 4 Classics’ Vent Covers Tips to help ensure the right vent covers are selected for your application.



Vintage Kitchen and Bathroom Sink Faucets
Quality vintage bathroom sink faucets and kitchen sink faucets provide years of service and offer timeless designs. Shop 4 Classics offers a wide selection of  bathroom and kitchen antique style faucets from some of the top brands that warrant their faucets to properly function for years after purchase. As with vent covers, it is important that you understand which types of faucets will work with the intended sink’s configuration. Shop 4 Classics also provides helpful Sink Faucet Tips that should be reviewed prior to making a purchase.



Hopefully a few new gifts ideas have made your gift list. Find enduring gifts while avoiding the often times chaotic crowds at the mall and big box stores, visit Shop 4 Classics soon to ensure that your gift arrives in time for the holidays.
