Since the recession hit a few years ago, America became a place that really looked back to nostalgic times to make us feel better — while also buying brand new iPhones every other year and multiple iPads.
It’s safe to say, we love the past but we love to live in the future even more.
With that in mind, here’s a look at some old school items that work as fun tech gifts.
6 Fun Tech Gifts to Remind Us of Yesteryear
It was never more convenient to live in the past!
Trapper Keeper iPad Case — $29.99
Remember when you used to draw cool Van Halen logos on your homemade paper-bag book covers, and use your Trapper Keeper for all of your important middle-school documents? With this iPad case, you’ll still feel like an insecure teenager with raging hormones, but you’ll look goooood doing it!
Cassette Tape iPhone Case — $1.73
Ahhh, the mix tape. No adolescent crush was complete without it. You’d take some cool songs off the radio, or if you were cool enough, you even had a double-tape deck, so you could dub from one tape to another.

Phone Handset for Your iPhone — $9.50
