Christmas seems like it comes sooner every year. Isn’t it crazy? I want to make extra sure my friends get their presents on time because shipping is taking longer than usual this year. That’s why I’m putting out this holiday rainbow gift guide early, because it’s better to be prepared. If you are looking for what to buy your BFF, I got you! All the best gifts for friends that are rainbow inspired for colour lovers.
Do you have a color lover on your Christmas gift list this year? Rainbows are very popular this year, and it’s easy to see why. People of all ages love rainbows. They can be bright and bold, or they can be subtle and muted.
Whether your friends love bright colors everywhere or just colored accents here and there, this list will guide you toward the best gifts for friends.
Rainbows are fun, youthful, and often nostalgic. Does that remind you of any of your friends? One thing I love about rainbows is how they remind me of a simpler time. There are so many nostalgic rainbows, and there’s a distinct difference between the bold eighties rainbows and the Lisa Frank 90’s rainbows. You can buy whichever matches your friend’s aesthetic the best!
What to Buy your BFF
Another thing I love about rainbows is that they always bring a smile to someone’s face. Neutral colors can be elegant, but sometimes they come off as cold. Rainbows are the exact opposite. They invite lots of emotions, feelings, and especially optimism. With how much red and yellow is typically in rainbow patterns, it’s no surprise that rainbow gifts remain some of the best gifts for friends.
You’d be surprised how many things come with a rainbow pattern. Seriously, you don’t have to look too hard to find what to buy your BFF. Anything from home decor, accessories, to school supplies all have rainbow pattern options.
One of the reasons that rainbow-colored gifts are some of the best gifts for friends is because you can get rainbow merchandise in so many variations. Minimalist rainbows are widely popular, but so are bold rainbow mugs, sweaters, and shoes. If you have friends who appreciate color, you can find a rainbow for them.
I love rainbows because they are somewhat universal. It’s pretty easy to find what to buy your BFF when you’re looking through my rainbow holiday gift guide. Rainbows represent happiness and youth, and most people can appreciate that.
Best Gifts for Friends
That being said, there’s a chance your BFF may have a specific aesthetic and not appreciate the simple beauty from a rainbow. That isn’t a problem, you can search through my other gift guides. Rainbows aren’t for everyone, especially those who don’t like certain colors. I’d also go out on a limb to say your friend whose favorite color is black probably won’t love a rainbow gift either, although they may appreciate a more minimal one.
That being said, even your neutral-loving friend would probably appreciate some fun rainbow-colored socks or something rainbow for their home. You really can’t rule anyone out of the rainbow-colored trend.
That’s why I put together this holiday gift guide! Your friends are all unique, with different tastes and interests. Whether they prefer pretty pastel rainbows or bold bright ones, rainbows will bring a smile to your friend’s face.
