The ripple of the water, the whir of cicadas, a dragonfly landing on my knee as I float down a lazy river; these are things that bring to mind the relaxing nature of summer. I feel like dragonflies as animals symbolize peace and relaxation. This is the feeling I get when I think of dragonflies.
Do you know someone who loves dragonflies? Then they will love these dragonfly gifts, and you will too. Each one is as elegant and peaceful as the dragonfly itself.
1. Wine Tumbler
Dragonfly gifts for adults
I love these trendy stemless wine glasses. Stemless wine glasses make it harder to knock drinks over. Some come with lids and can double as travel coffee mugs. I saw some ladies walking around the neighborhood with these, while taking their kids trick or treating this Halloween. However, I don’t think they were drinking coffee.
For a hostess gift, buy a nice bottle of wine and include a dragonfly wine stopper along with the wine. For someone who has wine glasses with stems, you can include a selection of dragonfly wine charms so guests won’t confuse their glasses. I hate when I set down my wine glass at a get-together to grab a bite to eat, and when I go to pick it up, there is another glass next to it. I never know which one is mine! Wine charms solve that problem. Now you just have to remember which charm is yours!
2. Solar Wind Chimes
Dragonfly ornaments for the garden
I have always loved the sound of wind chimes. Now there is a great visual too. These chimes are solar powered, so folks can still witness their magnificent colors at night while hearing the lovely music of their chimes. They have some for hummingbird fans too.
You can also get some outdoor solar string lights with dragonflies for decorating trees and fences. These are great for apartment balconies too. They can even be used indoors. These would be great to decorate with at Christmas time. Then you can get away with leaving them up all year, because they aren’t actually Christmas lights.
For someone with a yard, you can also get some dragonfly lawn stakes or spinners to welcome guests.
3. Phone Case
Dragonfly themed gifts
I love this selection of cell phone covers. Some are so wild, and others serene. Either way, they capture the elegance of dragonflies.
For those that like to mount their phone for streaming at home, or to use with some car mounts for driving directions, a Pop Socket covered with beautiful dragonflies will be a useful gift. These can also be used on tablets. They are the perfect size for stocking stuffers. For the dragonfly lover with a tablet, you can even get dragonflies on a decorative tablet cover.
4. Tea Set
Dragonfly gifts for her
In Japan, dragonflies are symbolic of happiness, strength, courage, and success. It’s no wonder why we are so attracted to them. Whether you choose a Japanese tea set or a traditional English tea set, both are elegant gifts to give to a classy lady.
Ladies as well as kids will love some fancy hair clips. Every woman, both young and old alike, has that one patch of hair that won’t stay put. An elegant dragonfly clip will make a fashion statement. No one needs to know that it is really being used due to unruly hair. These clips can be a simple Mother’s Day gift or fit nicely into a Christmas stocking.
As an additional gift for her, get a decorative candle holder where the light shines through to create beautiful dragonfly images.
5. Trinket Box
Dragonfly jewelry box
These make nice keepsake gifts for someone special in your life. They don’t hold much, but they look delicate sitting on a dresser or on a bathroom counter.
You can get some dragonfly jewelry to place in the jewelry box, such as earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. By including a piece of jewelry in the box, you have a nice Valentine’s Day gift. Include religious jewelry, and you have a confirmation or first communion present.
6. Oven Mitts
Dragonfly gifts for the kitchen
I try to have different oven mitts to go with each holiday and season. This way they don’t get worn out as fast, and always keep the kitchen looking fresh. A set of dragonfly mitts would be great for spring, or for a Mother’s Day gift. Most sets come with mitt and potholders, but you may be able to find one that includes an apron as well.
Wooden spoons are another great kitchen gift. Some allow you to include a name, making this a nice personalized dragonfly gift. You can also choose a custom coffee mug personalized with their name. Then they will always have the spirit of dragonflies with them to start the day, or for luck at the office. These are good secret santa gifts or a gift for an aunt who loves dragonflies.
7. Jigsaw Puzzle
Dragonfly themed gifts for Christmas
Puzzles are a wonderful activity for the whole family. Doing puzzles improves spatial reasoning and math abilities. Plus it keeps the mind sharp for those older dragonfly lovers.
For a friend who loves dragonflies, get some wall art or a unique dragonfly canvas with inspirational sayings.
You might want to take a look at gifts for lovers of other animals too!
8. Dragonfly Purse
Trendy dragonfly gifts
These purses are so cute, I want one for myself. I am not one for big purses, so I would like one of the small crossbody bags. It is just the right size to fit the necessities, while still leaving my hands free and not weighing me down.
For those who prefer larger purses and need a wallet, there are plenty of dragonfly designs to choose from. My oldest child doesn’t even carry a purse half of the time. She just uses a wallet. You can also get a dragonfly keychain to make it easier to find the keys. Some have motivational sayings.
9. Car Seat Covers
Unique dragonfly gifts
I love these. Car seat covers keep the original seats clean, or if you have an older car, they can cover up stains. Most of these are dark so they won’t show the dirt.
In addition to car seats, you can decorate the steering wheel with a dragonfly steering wheel cover. To prevent the interior of the car from getting too hot, get a dragonfly windshield shade. These also help keep the car interior colors from fading due to sun exposure. These fold easily to store when not in use.
10. Insulated Lunch Bag
Dragonfly gift ideas
These lunch bags can be used for the office, for school, or to take to events on the weekends. Great for picnic lunches at the playground. The insulation keeps hot foods warm longer and cold foods cool.
Don’t forget to include a dragonfly travel mug for their favorite hot or cold beverages. We have a coconut tree at my house, so my husband harvests them to extract the coconut water. I can’t stand the taste unless it’s cold. I fill a travel mug with coconut water and ice, and it stays cold throughout the day. For school kids and teens, choose a whimsical dragonfly backpack. Many teens use lightweight backpacks as a purse.
11. Holiday Ornament
Dragonfly Christmas ornament for the tree
A keepsake ornament for the dragonfly lover is a great stocking stuffer. You can even get a bunch so they can have a dragonfly themed tree.
For those that want to show off their holiday spirit wherever they go, you can get a holiday shirt with a Christmas tree image formed from dragonflies. You can even get a dragonfly Christmas stocking and fill it with lots of goodies.
12. Bath Curtains
Dragonfly presents for the bath
Choose from a beautiful selection of shower curtains for some themed bathroom decor.
Get matching shower curtain rings to add to the set. Don’t forget hand towels. These can be used for the bath or kitchen. Then get some larger towels for the bath or beach.
13. Tiffany Lamp
Unique dragonfly gifts for the home
Everyone knows the opulence of Tiffany lamps. The beautiful stained glass emanates elegance. Whether a bedside lamp, a floor lamp, or one to place on an end table in the living room, this is a gift that will add class to any room.
We collect decorative coasters. We never have enough. Someone drops a ceramic one. The cork coasters eventually swell up. We always buy souvenir coasters when we travel, to express our personality. You can help the dragonfly lover express their personality with a set of handmade coasters, that are both decorative and practical.
Start showing off their love for dragonflies with a dragonfly welcome mat to place at the front door. This makes a good housewarming gift.
14. Bedding Set
How comforting to go to sleep at night accompanied by the magic of dragonflies. Different sizes and designs are available to choose from.
You can also get a cozy throw blanket to curl up with on the couch. These are great to cuddle under while reading a good book or for movie night. You can even get some decorative dragonfly hooks. These can be used to hang a robe from the back of the bedroom door or for hanging a towel in the bathroom. Give a bunch so they can place some by the front door for guests to hang their coats.
