Classic gifts of lasting loveliness

The end of the year is fast approaching, so I've started thinking of gifts for our nearest and dearest. As it can be quite difficult to find the perfect present, I turned to this 1945 Sears catalogue for some seasonal inspiration. It's the ginchiest!

Here are a few of the featured products (you can click on each image to enlarge it and read the snappy advertising copy):

...I'm so glad I now know 25 ways to please a man!

There are more delightful archived catalogues over here at wishbookweb.

I noticed that Spiegel's 1955 offering has at least four pages of guns.
