Gift Ideas for Unicorn Lovers

Gift Ideas for Unicorn LoversThe unicorn has served as a legendary symbol in magical fairy tales, dreamy myths, and childhood lore for centuries, where the animal appears as a horse displaying a spiraling, pointy horn (usually golden in color) that is situated on its forehead. Appearing in storybooks, movies, and tales from antiquity, you may have encountered its graceful image on more than one occasion. If you’re shopping for someone who has a soft spot for the mythical creature, consider the following unicorn gift ideas:

Pottery Barn Bedding and Room Décor

Pottery Barn actually inspired this post…as the retailer has a nice selection of unicorn items to consider when you’re looking to treat a young child to new room décor. They also offer gift ideas for a new parent shopping for something to add to their nursery, such as plush unicorns and the Unicorn Rocking Chairs shown here, available in two different styles:Unicorn Lamp Base and Unicorn Rockers from Pottery Barn

  • The Nursery Unicorn Faux Fur Plush Rocker measures 26″ long x 13.5″ wide x 22″ high, and is recommended for ages 18 months & up.
  • Recommended for ages 3 and up, the slightly larger Kid Ivory Faux Fur Unicorn Rocker measures 32″ long x 14″ wide x 28″ high.

You can also add a name or monogram to the wooden base of both rockers.

Other Pottery Barn items to browse include:

  • Unicorn Quilted Bedding and Unicorn Sheeted Sets come in blue and pink colors.
  • Unicorn Lumbar Sham front side made with 100% cotton velvet and features a velvet appliqué design; available in pink and blue.

Magical Unicorn Rug - sold by ThinkGeekMagical Unicorn Rug

Decorated with roses and a unicorn, this oval-shaped rug is an exclusive ThinkGeek creation which I think would look lovely in a sewing room. Channeling the Middle Ages tapestry look, the Unicorn Rug would also add whimsy to a bathroom, bedroom, entryway, or home office. The measurements of this rug are 4′ tall by 3′ wide.

Magical Unicorn Bag and Wallet

Sold separately, ThinkGeek also sells a white/gold purse and wallet decorated with gold-tones, including an unicorn accent. The bag, which measures 9″ wide x 8 1/2″ tall x 1 1/2″ deep, is large enough to conveniently hold an e-reader. It comes with a magnetic closure; faux leather strap that adjusts from 20″ – 23″ drop; exterior pouch for easy access; and two interior pouches – including one that zips closed.

The trifold wallet is a gem (with or without the purse), and measures 7 7/16″ wide x 3 1/2″ tall x 1 3/4″ deep (folded). In addition to a zip coin pouch found on the outside, the wallet also has two bill-sized pockets and a see-thru ID slot that holds 12 additional card slots.

Movies with Unicorns

‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe’ (2005) features all sorts of wondrous creatures, including a magnificent unicorn. ‘The Little Unicorn’ (2012) is a nice little tale for the younger crowd.

The Movie Legend features a Unicorn

For the adult unicorn lover, consider gifting Ridley Scott’s fantasy classic Legend’ (1985), which stars Tom Cruise and Mia Sara as lovers, and Tim Curry as the ‘bad guy.’ Fans of Michelle Phieffer and Claire Danes might enjoy a copy of ‘Stardust‘ (2005), which offers a few twists on the contemporary fairytale genre.

My Little Pony Unicorns

My Little Pony has been around for quite some time, and whether you are shopping for a collector or wish to introduce a childhood classic to the kids or grandkids, there are a few fun ways to go about it:

Made from yarn, felt and thread, artisans such as WordsofWisdomNH, put their crocheting talents to good use for unicorn lovers. Shown here is a stuffed, crocheted version of the My Little Pony Unicorn Rarity. This shop also sells various other sizes and styles.

Vintage My Little Pony Unicorn and Crocheted My Little Pony Unicorn

To get a hold of vintage My Little Pony Unicorns, conduct a search on Etsy where you’ll find an array of options, including Sparkler (who hails from a second set of unicorn and pegasus ponies released in 1984). The unicorn from this particular listing sells for $8.50 from JaybirdsBrain, who sells many other collectibles in various colors, themes, and levels of condition.

Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn Line

Uncommon Goods is home to a line of rainbow unicorn products that offer a mug, cereal bowl, and piggy bank featuring Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn. Made from stoneware clay and lead free glaze, these handmade pottery works are one-of-a-kind pieces and safe for use in the microwave and dishwasher. The piggy bank comes with a rubber stopper at the bottom to remove change.
