Elephants are one of things that people love for no real reason. I mean, yes, elephants are beautiful, magnificent, amazing animals that deserve all of the happiness and magic in the world. And yes, most elephant products do have a certain adorable charm to them that makes you want to throw your money at whatever store is selling them even though you do not need said product at all. So, I guess we have our reasons for being obsessed with elephants, but basically it just boils down to the fact that they’re really, really lovable. And we all know someone who can’t get enough elephant-themed stuff – maybe it’s you! – so this year, indulge them and buy them some elephant products (or, ask people to buy them for you).
Here’s a cute fact to go along with your gift: elephants are a symbol of good luck. For years and years and years, elephants have been seen as signs of strength, stability, and wisdom. Many cultures position elephant statues or artwork by entryways to protect homes and project knowledge and success. An elephant product doesn’t just look cute in a trendy, boho way – they offer luck and fortune. You can’t get much better than that. So, whether you’re looking for gifts to ask for this holiday or trying to find something to buy a friend, check out this list of elephant gift options. Try to make it through without spending money, I dare you.
1. Elephant Gloves
Glittens (gloves with the fingers cut off with attachable mitten tops) are the best for winter, and everyone should have a pair. Especially a pair that makes your hands look like little elephants, because why not?

3. Elephant Sweatpants
I personally love getting cute sweatpants as a gift, because they’re so comfy and nice to wear, and you can never have enough of them. These elephant pants are extra special, as each purchase donates a portion of the money to the International Elephant Foundation.

4. An Elephant Ring Dish
A ring dish is a great gift because it’s something people typically don’t buy themselves. This little one is inexpensive and makes a great extra gift, or a good option if you don’t know what else to get someone. It holds rings and small earrings.
