Unicorn Gift Ideas - Holiday Gift Guide

“Always be yourself, unless you can be a UNICORN. Then always be a unicorn.” 🦄😉

*
Hey guys! I’m excited to share that I’ve teamed up with Walmart this year to bring you fabulous gift ideas for the holidays. You might just be surprised (in the best possible way!) about the wide range of unique and stylish products they have to offer, both in-store and online.

Since unicorns are such a hot trend right now, I thought it would be fun to mix a little unicorn magic with the magic of the holiday season! So, I spent some time on Walmart.com curating a special list of favorite unicorn-inspired gift ideas to share with you. There were seriously SO MANY fun unicorn things to choose from – but this list is geared towards recipients that love entertaining, baking, and hosting parties…since that’s kinda what we’re all about over here. ;)

Unicorn Gifting Magic

Gift giving is about making people happy, and gifts that do just that are what you’ll find below – from extraordinary flatware to top-notch kitchen tools to wine glasses that declare *just how magical we are*. (Hint: very!)

Oh, and another thing that will make YOU happy as the giver of the gifts: Walmart offers convenient, free 2-day shipping on orders over $35 (with no special subscription or extra fee required) and Pickup Today on lots of popular, eligible items…because saving time and money is quite *magical* too, you know.

Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Aqua - Unicorn Kitchen

Dreamy Stand Mixer

Let’s start with the dreamiest gift of them all first, shall we?! This gorgeous KitchenAid Stand Mixer in Aqua Sky pulls double duty as an amazing kitchen tool AND pretty home decor. With 10 speeds to mix and 15 optional attachments (sold separately), it’s guaranteed to help any cooking or baking enthusiast whip up some truly magical treats!

The Artisan Stand Mixer is also available in a variety of colors, including these unicorn-palette-friendly picks: Pink, Cranberry, Ocean Drive, Yellow, Aqua Sky (pictured here) White, Silver, and Gold.

Unicorn Head Wall Mount

Unicorn Head Wall Decor

This magestic Unicorn Head Wall Mount Art is guaranteed to add a bit of magic to any home! From whimsical kids rooms to the fashion-forward dining room, bar, or other living space, this darling piece definitely delivers the whimsy and fun. It’s constructed of lightweight resin with a glittery gold horn on top. Don’t be shy about adorning it with holiday garlands and using it as festive seasonal decor, too!

Bose Bluetooth Speaker Gift

Music Magic

Music is such a big part of any celebration, and this Bose Sound Link Color II is perfectly built for entertaining! It’s super compact, making it easy to bring wherever the party is, from the backyard to the park to the pool. Water-resistant and available in 4 stylish colors, this sleek and affordable speaker packs an 8-hour battery life and powerful sound!

Unicorn Wine Stopper Gift

Unicorn Wine Stopper

Put a lid on it – in style! I love the modern feel and pastel rainbow mane of this hand-painted Unicorn Wine Stopper. It’s perfectly sized for hostess gifting…or pair it with a bottle of your recipient’s favorite wine for a creative gifting duo.

Magical Unicorn Wine Glasses

Unicorn Wine Glasses

We could all use a reminder about how magical we are, right? Well, these unicorn wine glasses are here to help! Generously sized at 17 oz, these stemless wine glasses are another one of those gifts that’s guaranteed to bring the smiles over and over again, so CHEERS to that!

Hostess Gift Ideas

Here’s a mini round-up of hostess gift ideas that are creative and definitely won’t break the bank, because sometimes you want to (or need to) bring something other than another bottle of wine… ;)

1. ❤️ Love & Unity Market Tote
Did you know that Ellen DeGeneres has a fabulous new apparel line out at Walmart called EV1? Well, this cute canvas tote bag is one of the items – and I’m getting magical vibes from the stars and metallic foil lettering! Priced at only $9, this also makes for a creative – and very useful – hostess gift. And if you haven’t checked out the full line yet, it’s totally worth taking a peek! Here are a couple other favorites that are already on my own wish list:

2. ✨ Crystal Tumbler Cups
Add some sparkle to their sips! This acrylic crystal tumbler comes with a leak-proof lid + matching straw and works for both hot and cold drinks. Pictured above in Pink Rose and Yellow Topaz.

3. 🦄 Unicorn Food: Magical Recipes for Sweets, Eats, and Treats OR Unicorn Food: Natural Recipes for Edible Rainbows
Both are super cute books filled with colorful recipes, but the latter features natural food dyes only.

Rainbow Mirror Flatware - Unicorn Utensils

Rainbow Mirror Flatware

Seriously, how FUN is this Rainbow Mirror Flatware?! It’s just as pretty in real life, and comes with a beautifully budget-friendly price tag, too. This is a great gift idea for lots of people – from the girlie girl that just loves pretty things, to the fashion-forward hostess that loves setting impressive tables, to that friend that loves to entertain but already seems to have everything. This flatware is definitely not something you see everyday, which makes it all the more *magical*. ;)

Pictured below: the rainbow flatware paired with pretty teal print plates that I found in-store at Walmart.

Unicorn Funfetti Cake and Rainbow Flatware

Pink Watercolor Dishes

Blush Watercolor Dinnerware

Speaking of pretty plates, this Blush Watercolor Dinnerware definitely fits the bill, too! Priced at under $30 for a 12-piece set (service for 4), this Walmart exclusive will definitely beautify any table for an amazing price. Fun tip: for an extra magical breakfast, fill the bowl with some unicorn marshmallow cereal and grab a rainbow mirror spoon! ;)

White Cake Stand Gift Idea Pioneer Woman

Milk Glass Cake Stand

Cake stands – like this charming white milk glass design – are one of my very favorite *tools* for entertaining because they’re so versatile (and pretty!). This also makes them a thoughtful gift idea for anyone that loves to entertain. You can use “cake stands” for everything from desserts and savory appetizers to “risers” for party decor.  I love that this particular 10″ stand comes with a sturdy glass dome, so it can be utilized in two different ways.
