Enchanted Unicorn Gift Ideas, Part 1

Unicorn Gift Ideas

Unicorns are more than just horses with horns, they remind us to believe in magic and to dream big. So if you know someone who needs more unicorn magic in their life (and who doesn’t?!), this gift list is for you.

And why did I label this gift list ‘part 1’ you ask? As I was doing my research for these unicorn gift ideas, I realized pretty quickly that this was going to be a two-parter. There are simply too many beautiful unicorn gift ideas to limit myself to just one list. And there are no shortage of unicorn gift lists flying around the interweb, but thanks to a lot of digging and a little bit of my own unicorn magic, I found some gems I bet you’ve never seen before.

Watch for part 2 of the unicorn gift list coming later this summer!
