10 Unique Whimsical Gifts for Every Wild Personality

Don’t panic — you’re just in time to start looking for the perfect whimsical gifts. 

The season of giving is fast approaching, and you’re already thinking hard about what your friends and family will love most. We’re right there with you, so we put together a list of 10 whimsical gifts for the fashionable free thinker in your life. 

Nobody’s born knowing how to pick a meaningful gift. The trick is to put yourself in their shoes. As silly as it sounds, make sure you’re buying for them, not for you — pick items and styles that they’ll love, even if it’s only your second favorite. 

The best part of unique personality gifts for friends is that you picked it out just for them. Unsure about where to start? Look no further. 

1- For the bubbly one-of-a-kind cat lover in your life.

3- For those who sometimes live in outer space 

We all know someone who has a wild mind. The creative soul who sometimes travels to a different dimension, and then centers back to Earth and tells you something like: “what were you saying?”. There’s nothing wrong with day dreaming, we do it all the time, so our CAT ABDUCTION Scarf can definitely reflect something unique going on in someone’s mind.

4- For the outfit repeater seeking effortless style

Have you ever wanted to gift the feeling of wearing an outfit that’s athleisure-level comfy and runway-level gorgeous? It’s real, and you can. 

Our ethical loungewear is designed to be versatile to the extreme. Dress it up for brunch, down for sleep, and never once have to unbutton your pants to sit down. This is perfect for your sustainability-minded companion on the hunt to create the perfect capsule wardrobe.

Mix and match our cotton pants and tops. Wear them together or wear them apart. These make the perfect PJ set, toss on a pair of heels and a fit sweater and they’re your next party outfit, or wear them with sneakers and a crop tee for a casual Sunday walk.

5- For the vegan or Earthy gal. 

There’s no better way to stand for what you believe in than by wearing your beliefs all together. Gift these gorgeous conversation starters to catch even more eyes at the farmers market. 

Wearing your values goes beyond wearing ethically sourced, sustainably made silk and cotton. Sometimes, it means wearing broccolini. A love of stylishly arranged, beautifully designed vegetables means taking a very serious stand, and we’re here for it. Down-to-earth like a beet and sharp as a turnip, any veggie-slinging marketeer would be more than glad to wear their veggies.

Sometimes, all the things that make our loved ones uniquely great just can’t be expressed in one hobby or interest. For the friend that loves anything a little out there, completely unique, and smile-splittingly fun, check out some of our very favorite one-of-a-kind designs. 

Based on a real memory and place in Kawaguchiko, this pedal boat design breathes life into the feeling of whimsical childhood nostalgia. Gift that feeling to someone who needs it and let them drape themselves in an aura of fun and good fashion.

Gift giving is a love language 

Giving gifts goes so far beyond just buying someone an item. 

For some people, gift giving is a love language that makes them feel appreciated. It’s less about the gift, and more about them knowing that you’ve carefully reflected on what they’d like and that you pay attention. 

How well do you know your friends? For the statement-piece-searchers, the always-fashionable party-goers, the makes-hungover-brunch-look-good types in your life, these unique whimsical gifts are sure to please.
