Valentine’s Dates for Cheap Skates

Looking for something to do with your better half that won’t break the bank this Valentine’s? We’ve got your covered with our awesome date ideas!


The Perfect Date Night Ideas

  1. Set up an indoor picnic – one for the more fussier eaters who may not like eating out, this idea makes perfect sense. Simply get all of your favourite foods and drinks and binge on a comfy blanket set up on the floor!
  2.  Make your favourite sweet treats – whether you both love the same cookie or have completely different tastes, get together all of you necessary ingredients and cook up a storm with your other half (plus, you won’t have to share!)
  3. Head to the arcade to play some games – if you’re still new to the dating scene or in a very long term relationship, this date night idea is sure to bring out the more competitive side of you both… So be prepared.
  4. Get the face masks out and have a spa night – you don’t have to break the bank on the most expensive masks and creams, just simply head down to your favourite bargain shop and collect a few different masks, you could even try making your own.
  5. Order a takeaway (or cook some real food) and binge on Netflix – now, this may be a regular occurrence and if it is, I would urge you to try something different on Valentine’s Day. However, if you’re both not that fussed about the day, then it can be the perfect way to chill and get your teeth into a completely new series!




Whether you decide to pick one or all of the above, you’re sure to impress anyone with our fabulously romantic (and cheap) ideas…

Halloween Horror Loveliness

It’s that wonderful time of year (again!) and as Halloween creeps upon us, it’s the perfect time for us to dedicate a whole blog post to our favourite Halloween films and merchandise to boot...

What is Halloween Without the Friday the 13th Franchise?


Comprising of twelve slasher style films, a TV show, novels, comic books, video games, and awesome merchandise – which of course, we cannot get enough of at Retro Styler HQ.

Check out our Friday the 13th Messenger Bag here.

Jason Voorhees, is one of Horror’s most iconic villains. The slasher classic has a legion of devoted followers and is one of cinema’s most memorable horror classics, we can hear the creepy whispering already…Ki Ki Ki Ma Ma Ma.


The Ultimate Classic: The Shining

The Shining tells the tale of Jack who unravels into a homicidal maniac who’s completely focused on terrorising his own family, which is more relatable than ever now I’m a bit older… It’s easy to see why The Shining is among the top Horror classics.


Ditch the standard white bed sheet with two eye holes this Halloween and shake things up with this The Shining Murder Grey T-Shirt. Perfect for those who don’t like spending a whole year making their costumes, this T-Shirt requires minimal effort but will attract a lot of attention.

Last But by No Means Least: The Joker

With so many differing portrayals, the Joker is the most versatile villain to ever grace our screens. As HUGE fans of DC Comics and the superhero (and villain) clan, we can’t get enough of the Joker at Retro Styler HQ, so it would make little sense for us to leave the sinister guy off our short Halloween-themed list!


If you’re planning an awesome Halloween house party, then we have come up with the perfect way to welcome your guests into your humble abode. Check out this Welcome to Arkham Asylum Doormat, complete with ace Joker character detailing, it’s the best way to start your spooky evening as you party well into the night…

How to Celebrate Your Fridays in Style…

It’s Friyaaay! And after a long, hard, busy week, what’s better than getting all dolled up and heading out on the town for a few drinks?! (In a responsible manner of course…)


I have kindly put together a super short list of all our favourite (and equally awesome) drinking accessories that are guaranteed to put a spring in the step of any party…

Okay, so you’ve mastered the art of beer pong, but are you ready to take up the challenge of this Shot Pong Party Drinking Game?! This one will definitely separate the drinkers from the sinkers as the odds are higher and the cups are A LOT smaller…


Beer pong a bit too mainstream for you? Want something a bit different to really surprise your guests? Check out this Battle Shots Party Drinking Gamewho can hold their sea legs and nerve steady enough to drown and sink their opponent? (Literally…)


No beard? No problem… Take a look at this awesome and quirky Beer’d Stein, perfect for all those guys (and maybe even girls) who have always tried, yet failed, to grow that hipster beard. Please your girlfriend or even just yourself as you sip away at your favourite beverage thinking about all of the other hipster activities you can now take part in…


Now one for the GoT fanatics… These Game of Thrones shot glasses are sure to liven up any prinks or party. Featuring Stark, Lannister, Targaryen and Tyrell designs, this set of four shot glasses will go down a treat as a party accompaniment or as the ultimate stocking-filler.



Did your party even happen if there’s no pictures to prove it? Spice up your Instagram feed with the help of this DC Originals Character Photobooth, and get your snaps looking ship shape as you take on the personas of the much loved DC Comics clan…
