Purple is the color of royalty. It symbolizes wisdom, bravery, and spirituality. People who like the color purple are thought to be creative, intuitive, and ready to help. Do these traits sound familiar? Maybe you know someone who adores the color purple. If purple has been their favorite color for a while, you have probably run out of ideas for what to get them. I mean really, do they need another purple mug or shirt?
I went outside the box to find these unique purple gifts that they probably didn’t even know existed.
Purple gifts for pets
Cats already think they rule the castle. Give them a purple scratching post in this royal color to use as their throne.
For naps, give pets a purple dog bed. These aren’t just for dogs. Cats will enjoy them too.
Dog bowls are also available in the color purple. Some of these are even rigged so dogs won’t eat too fast.
To show off their favorite color, give Fido a purple harness and leash set.
Purple gifts for the kitchen
Most people have boring black or silver pans. Why not spice things up and get them a set in their favorite color? Some even come with matching utensils.
You can also get them a dish set in various shades of purple.
Every cook needs measuring equipment. Even if they aren’t a chef, many people measure their food for portion control. A set of purple measuring cups will do the job.
A good set of knives makes a huge difference when cooking. There are different ones for chopping, cutting meat, and for slicing bread. Give them a new set of kitchen knives in their favorite color, purple.
Purple gifts for Mom
She will feel like Belle, minus the Beast, when you give her this beautiful glass flower. Watch her eyes light up just like the flower does.
I know there are times you wish you were with Mom to give her a big hug. For times when you can’t, give her an inspirational blanket to remind her how much you love and admire her. It won’t be the same as being wrapped in your arms, but this blanket will still be a cozy substitute.
Although wine isn’t purple, her wine glass can be. To show her how special she is to you, give her one with a hand painted design. She can sip her wine while wrapped in the cozy blanket.
Purple gifts for guys
While in American culture dragons are thought of as scary evil creatures, in Asia they are considered symbols of power and good luck. Make him feel lucky with a pocket knife emblazoned with a purple dragon.
Or get him some purple wireless earbuds for listening to his favorite tunes.
Purple gifts for her
Girls in our society are usually trained to choose the color pink as their favorite color from a young age. Then they start to get a rebellious streak when starting elementary school and graduate to purple. If her favorite color is purple, she will be really excited when she opens her present and sees a Barbie with purple hair. Especially now with so many people sporting different color tresses.
For fans of Rainbow High dolls you can get a Violet Willow doll.
If they prefer villains, give them Disney’s Maleficent or Ursula dolls.
Purple gifts for a friend
Your best friend. You know everything about each other. So of course you will know exactly which model phone they have and can pick out the perfect purple phone case for them.
You can also get them a fluffy purple pillow for the couch or bed. They can use it to cushion their head while chatting on their purple phone.
For another cozy gift, give them a wearable purple hooded blanket.
Purple gifts for women
Amethysts are the birthstone for February. But even if she is born in another month, these semi precious jewels still make good gifts. They symbolize spiritual healing, calmness, and wisdom.
For a more spunky idea, get her a purple purse.
At the end of the day, she won’t be calling for Calgon to take her away if you give her a lavender spa basket. She can wash her stress away while inhaling this calming scent.
Something purple gift
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, or in this case something purple. Have their cute pup lead them down the aisle in a fancy dog dress.
As Barney says in How I Met Your Mother, “Suit up,” in a purple suit that is. The groom can wear a purple suit on their big day.
While she may still want to donn white for her wedding, she can still have a hidden bit of purple for the groom to find. Get a purple garter for the bride to wear under her wedding gown.
Want to see gifts for lovers of other colors too?
Romantic purple gifts for him
Give him some love with a bear made from artificial purple roses. I know these are marketed for moms, but come on girls, let’s be honest. You know you want to get your guy a cute stuffed animal for times you aren’t there with him.
However, if you want a less flowery choice, there are other purple stuffed animals to choose from. Slip a secret message into the note card with hints for later.
10. Live Orchids
Purple gifts for flower lovers
My friend Pat raises orchids. I love looking at them when I go to her house. Some people enjoy cultivating orchids as a relaxing pastime.
Are they looking for a new hobby? If they don’t have space for a full size tree, you could get them a small wisteria to cultivate as a bonsai. Then they can look upon beautiful purple flowers every spring.They will also need tools for pruning and a book on growing bonsai trees.
If they prefer herbs, you can get them a lavender plant. These can grow both inside and out.
If they don’t have a green thumb, (or should I say purple thumb?), they can still enjoy purple blossoms with a flower umbrella.
11. Purple Rain
Purple presents for music fans
Music fans can still go crazy for Purple Rain with this new version on purple vinyl. Of course you can also get this on MP3 or CD.
Vinyl is making a comeback, so if they got rid of their record player during the last century, you can get them a more modern one with built in speakers. Better yet, give them a purple turntable!
You can even get guitar players a purple electric guitar so they can feel like Prince up on stage.
Purple gifts for the car
You can get a full set or just the seat covers. Some sets even include steering wheel covers and covers for seat belts so the straps don’t cut into the skin.
Car coasters are also available. These prevent that yucky pool of condensation that forms in the cup holders.
For a unique purple gift, give them car valve covers for their tires, in the color purple. Those will make their car stand out. You can also protect the inside of their car from sun damage with purple sun shades for the windshield.
Top off the gift with a lavender air freshener. Then their vehicle will smell as fresh as it looks.
Purple gift ideas for the office
Show them the world through rose colored glasses, rather purple glasses, with these purple office supplies. You can create your own purple gift basket by combining some of these gifts.
You can place them all in a purple desk organizer to use instead of a gift basket.
14. Purple Cookies
Purple birthday gifts
Instead of cake, give them purple cookies. These are great gifts for a birthday at the office. If you are lucky, they might even share with you.
To create a fancy birthday beverage, give them some purple drink glitter to add to their cocktail. This edible glitter adds fancy shimmer to alcoholic beverages, but it can also be used in libations that are alcohol free.
Purple Christmas gifts
Christmas is a time of year when we give either more expensive gifts than usual or buy things that people will never buy for themselves. Here I have gone with the later option. Why not get someone who loves the color purple a cute elephant figurine to decorate their humble abode. Due to being the largest living land mammals, elephants represent strength, protection, wisdom, and luck.
Another cool gift is an Aladdin’s lamp in the color purple. Have them dreaming of 1001 Arabian Nights with this unique present. This is definitely something you won’t have to worry about them already having.
