Gifts for the Unicorn and Cat Obsessed



 I have to confess I have a thing for unicorns. I've always believed that if there are such things as whales with horns (aka narwhals), sheep with horns (my very loose interpretation of mouflons), and other fantastic-looking animals, there is no reason for unicorns not to have existed. 

The explosion of merchandise bearing cute unicorns indicates I'm not alone in my beliefs. That is why I decided to personally curate a gift guide dedicated to every unicorn and cat lover out there. Ideal for teens, tweens, and adults with a penchant for anything cute (like yours truly), this unique guide includes very affordable gift ideas. Sounds like another fantasy of mine? Just check my selection below and you'll see for yourself!

2. Rainbow Unicorn Beanie Hat by Spencer's ($14.99): This exclusive beanie hat has it all: Unicorns and rainbows!

Plus, the rainbow striped cuff will match literally any outfit you wear with a pop of color. Who said winter has to be boring? However, consider yourself warned: This beanie is so cool you'll want to keep it for yourself and will need to find another gift. Just sayin'.

3. Vanilla Chai Classic Picks Gift Set by The Body Shop ($19): If regular horses love apples, your unicorn-obsessed friend will squeak in delight when she sees a gigantic apple-shaped tin with goldish-glittery beauty products inside. The kit includes a mini shower gel, sugar scrub, body butter, and body lotion scented with the decadent and luscious vanilla from Madagascar. Believe me, if a she-unicorn were to take a bath, she'd indulge in the decadence of this gift set.

4. Pusheenicorn by Gund ($26): If you're looking for the perfect gift for a friend who loves cats and unicorns, I can't think of anything better than this plush.

Can't get better than this!
