15 Gifts to Send You Back to a Simpler Time


This year the Gift Guide takes inspiration from favorite throwback movies, all available to stream now. Buy some presents, watch some old favorites, and close out 2020 with all kinds of good cheer.

“Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine?” Our Back to the Future (Part I, 1985, Part II, 1989, Part III, 1990, streaming on Netflix) gift guide will take you down memory lane, nodding to the past with a futuristic flair. We can confidently say that Marty McFly and Doc Brown would approve all of these selections, from a Polo Ralph Lauren packable vest made from recycled fabrics, to Celine high-top retro sneakers paying homage to Marty’s signature look, to nostalgic hits from a new Razr phone and a Polaroid camera. And it may not be a DMC DeLorean, but the new Maserati MC20 will blast you into the future with its 630 horsepower V6 engine. We can’t get there fast enough. —Miles Pope
