10 Unicorn Gifts You Can Actually Use

I have long been into unicorns (like, actually way before they became au courant), so pretty much whenever people see unicorn things on the Internet, they share them with me. It’s been awesome to see unicorns get so mainstream; however, I'm not a fan of clutter/tchotchke type gifts...of which there are now tons in the unicorn domain. So in honor of National Unicorn Day today (yes, really!) I wanted to share 10 unicorn gifts that you or your kids will actually use/enjoy repeatedly. Enjoy! And feel free to share any other useful unicorn favorites in the comments below!

1. BOOK

Violet received Not Quite Narwahl as a gift and she LOVES this book, whether being read to or reading it on her own. You can never have enough books!

2. PUZZLES

Puzzles get a ton of play in our house! If your kid loves puzzles and loves unicorns, these 42, 100, and 500 piece options will suit different ages.

3. BACKPACK

There are a lot of patterned unicorn backpacks out there but I love the glam simplicity of this metallic unicorn backpack.

4. SOCKS

I bought Laurel a pair of these narwahl socks and she wears them all the time, and I also love that unicorn athletic socks exist. I mean, seriously, way to bring your whimsy to the field or court!

5. GAME

I love board games, whether it's with the family or a group of adults. I am highly intrigued by this Unstable Unicorns game. The packaging design is on point!

I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend Brave New World Design’s awesome unicorn birth year t-shirt!

7. TRAVEL PILLOW

I travel a lot for work and I’m thinking this unicorn travel pillow will help me up my airplane nap game.

8. WATER BOTTLE

Because hydration = important. Without fail, I drink more water if I keep a water bottle with me at my desk. I love the dark backdrop on this unicorn water bottle.

9. MUG

Also in the domain of beverages, I drink a lot of hot beverages through the day, and I love the vintage styling of this unicorn mug.

10. CUPCAKES

Be the best office mate ever and bring a Georgetown Cupcake rainbow and unicorn dozen to work. (The girls and I have bought all but the rainbow cupcake individually on Newbury Street and to the surprise of no one, they are delicious!)
