A well though out collection of pin up girl gifts that make a better impact together than apart, although feel free to pick and choose from these suggestions. Make your best gal feel special with items that bring out her inner diva.
For the gift box, use a hat box or make up case with pictures of pin-up girls decoupaged outside and/or inside. Pin up girl playing cards or poker chips work perfectly for decorating. A nice red or hot pink case makes a great base, although a simple black one works as well. Depending on her style, a simple image of Bettie Boop or Bettie Page can be glued to the top.
Fill the box with some of the following;
Red nail polish, emery boards, polish remover, clear polish for the extra shine. Pin-up girls were often depicted with pointed red nails.
Red lipstick, gloss, red lip pencils anything to recreate the pin up girl pout. Besame has a great collection of lipsticks that come in classy gold cases slipped into red velvet pouches, very nice touch.
Fake lashes, liquid eye liner and white eye shadow can be added for sultry pin up girl eyes.
Pretty compact, powder and a mirror complete the matte pin up girl look. All the make up items can be decoupaged with leopard print paper or polka dots or choose pretty carrying cases for the supplies.
Fishnet stocking with seams up the back for a classic look. If your local Target doesn’t carry them, look in a costume or party store or find them online. Leg Avenue has a large selection of stockings at reasonable prices, with or without garters.
Dolce Mia soaps could be the highlight of the gift. This collection of super moisturizing soaps created with yummy fragrances like tangerine, almond, lavender are made extra special with their canvas wrapped bands depicting classic 40’s pin up girls and cowboys. The soaps are also made for men and children. The liquid soap is nice for the display factor as well as being practical.

Lingerie. There are so many options in this category; a set of garters, leopard print panties, baby doll nightgown, anything that you feel comfortable giving. The price range is huge, look around and find something that fits your budget.
