It doesn’t matter that rainbows are caused by reflection, refraction, and dispersion of light in water, we just know they look beautiful. One time after a light rain, I counted 17 rainbows as I was driving on the highway. Kids like the pretty colors and magical quality of the rainbows. Adults may have an affinity for their sense of whimsy or the religious significance as a promise from God. The rainbow has also become a symbol of universal acceptance. While these rainbow gifts won’t help them find that mythical pot of gold, they sure will feel like they hit the jackpot. Don’t forget to get some rainbow gift bags to place smaller gifts in.
1. Rainbow Tutu
Rainbow birthday gifts
For an unforgettable birthday gift, give her an outfit with a rainbow tutu. She will be over the rainbow with this adorable birthday gift with her new age printed on it.
You can also get tie-dye birthday shirts for boys.
For any age you can get a rainbow balloon arch to decorate the birthday shindig. These can be used for any celebration, not just birthdays.
2. Tie Dye Sneakers
Retro rainbow gifts to wear
My husband and I used to have a tie dye business years ago. We would sell our wares at craft shows. Even people who didn’t want to buy anything were attracted to our booth by the colorful displays. Fans of bright colors will love having a pair of unique tie dye sneakers, making them stand out in a crowd.
Or you can get them a tie dye hat. My husband always wears one of these. It makes him easy to spot when we get separated in a sea of people.
For those who like the festive colors but can’t get away with these bright clothes on a daily basis, give them some rainbow socks. These will be hidden beneath their pants legs, only showing when they sit down.
3. Scratch Art
Rainbow gifts for kids
When people asked what they should get my kids for birthdays and Christmas, I always told them crafts. Crafts give children something to do when they are bored, instead of watching television. When they need help, it provides a good bonding experience. But one of my favorite things is that once they are used up, they don’t take up space in the closet. These scratch projects are something they can do by themselves. Basically, they use a wooden stick to “draw” on the black paper, revealing beautiful rainbow colors beneath.
Sometimes kids like to make jewelry to give to their friends. A colorful jewelry kit will provide hours of fun by themselves or with others.
If you don’t mind the mess, kids also love rainbow sand art. If messes aren’t your thing, just have them do the craft outside.
People of all ages love tie dye. A tie dye kit is a great family gift to do together. When I was pregnant with my last child, my other kids and I used a tie dye kit to create matching t-shirts and onesies for my husband and the baby. It made a unique Christmas gift.
4. Rainbow Pop It
Rainbow presents for stress relief
Pop its are a great way to relieve stress for adults and kids. These are also used to soothe anxious children or people with autism. There are other styles besides purses. I just thought the purse was really cool.
You can also get rainbow fidget spinners. These are great for keeping hands occupied in people with ADHD.
When they need to work out their hands after using the computer for too long, give them a rainbow stress ball to release the kinks.
5. Rainbow Barbies
Rainbow gift ideas
Barbie has always been up on the latest fashion and hairstyles. The new modern Barbie sports colorful tresses just like real trend setters.
Or get them some Rainbow High Dolls and accessories. Each doll has a different color scheme.
For kids who prefer building over playing with dolls, give them some rainbow bricks. They might even grow up to be an architect like Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother. You can also get the Lego Everyone is Awesome Pride collection which includes 11 mini figures in a rainbow of colors.
6. Pride Tote
LGBTQ Rainbow gifts
The Rainbow is a symbol of inclusiveness for the LGBTQ community. But you don’t have to be part of the community to show your support. You can get a rainbow tote if you just happen to like rainbows.
You can also get a pride necklace or a pride flag as gifts to show your pride.

Rainbow themed gifts
These phone cases have something for everyone. There are bright Pride cases, soft pastels with bling, or even a unicorn pop it.
You can also get rainbow wallet cases for convenience. The phone case opens to double as a card holder. These are great for guys who often have to cram everything in their pockets. I like these too because I use a small purse. Due to lack of space, I don’t like having to shove in a phone and a wallet.
You can also get a rainbow popsocket or an airpods case. These are good gifts for teens or if you don’t know what model phone they have.

While these are meant for kids, if you check the weight limits, you will find many adults can enjoy these chairs as well. Then you won’t have to worry about them outgrowing it.
For their desk, kids or fun loving adults will like a rainbow organizer to help get rid of clutter. They will never have to dig under all those papers for a pen again.
When they are ready to hit the beach, a rainbow towel will be easy to spot from the water.
You can even get a rainbow yoga mat for exercising. These come in small sizes too, so their kids, (or cats), can enjoy yoga.
Tie dye backpacks come in a variety of choices from pale pastels to bright spirals. These are great for school kids.

Little girls love unicorns. They symbolize hope and imagination. These jewelry boxes will inspire them to reach for their own pot of gold, plus they can keep their jewelry in them.
What would girls want more than a beautiful unicorn jewelry box? They would love to be a unicorn. Well, they can’t actually be a unicorn, but they can have the next best thing, a hooded rainbow robe with a unicorn horn.
