2016 Colorful Gift Guide: Multi-Colored + Rainbow

I can’t believe it! Today is the last one in our color coded gift guide series. We hope you’ve been enjoying them, all the while giving you some great gift ideas and adding color to your life. Today could be our very favorite of the bunch, and that is because it encompasses ALL the colors. You’ll see more ideas below than we’ve done in the others because we honestly had such trouble narrowing it down. There were SO many good multi-colored choices. I guess that’s not such a bad problem to have though, right?

20 Multi-Colored + Rainbow Gift Ideas We Love

1. Neon Yoga Mat : The yogi in your life NEEDS this mat. The pattern is enough to make anyone smile. The colors!

2. Vogue Coloring Book : Whether for a child or an adult, this coloring book is unlike the ones you’re used to. It’s as chic as a coloring book can be, and it’ll bring out the creative side in anyone.

3. Sophie Hulme Albion Glittered Striped Leather Tote : Have you ever seen a more fabulously, colorful bag? In LOVE with this one. A bit of a splurge, but more than worth it!

4. Gap Crazy Stripe Merino Wool Blend Scarf : A combination you know we all love is color and stripes. This scarf makes our hearts pitter patter (as do the gloves and hat!).

5. Colorful Hair Ties : If you’re like me, you’re always either losing your hair ties or they get stretched out. I, personally, would LOVE this as a gift under my tree.

6. Pared Sonny & Cher Sunglasses : We adore these sunglasses. They are pure beauty, and would top off any look in the most stylish way.

7. Geary & Geary Resin Swirl Coasters : Now, THESE are stunning coasters. These have already made their way onto my wish list. They are almost too pretty to use!

8. Les Bonbons Tutti Earrings : These are earrings that would jazz up any outfit. This is another great option for someone in your life who typically stays on the neutral colored side of apparel, as it’s a subtle way to add color. Of course, they would also be great for your color loving friend, too!

9. Molton Brown 12 Days of Christmas Collection : Anyone in your life would love 12 luxurious scented body washes. With the most delicious scents, it’s for sure to be a hit.

10. Edie Parker Rainbow Bag Charm : This would be the ideal gift for someone who doesn’t stray too far from neutral colored bags. It will add a fun and colorful touch in a more subtle way than getting a rainbow colored bag.

11. Edie Parker Jean Rainbow Jewel White Clutch : As you can tell, we have a thing for all things Edie Parker. And for good reason! Who wouldn’t love a jeweled clutch like this one?

12. Deborah Lippmann Her Majesty Nail Polish Set : We are big fans of Deborah Lippmann polishes, and this set includes all her best colors. Get this for your bestie, and it’ll completely transform her at home mani situation.

13. Beaches by Gray Malin : We are also such fans of Gray Malin. He is an incredible photographer, and if you’re looking for a gift for someone who appreciates photography, loves the beach, or simply enjoys beautiful photos, this is the book to get.

14. Edie Parker Flavia Happy Box Clutch : Who wouldn’t want a clutch that says ‘HAPPY’ on it?! Again, we love anything from Edie Parker, and especially this gem.

15. Malin + Goetz 6 Piece Travel Kit : Your globe trotting sister will love this one, as it has the main toiletries you’ll need no matter where you go. And, of course it’s no surprise how much we fell for the colorful bottles.

16. Hanky Panky 20 Pack : You can never have too many! This is a gift that isn’t only pretty, but it’s a necessity, too! Any gal would love.

17. Gucci Print Silk Scarf : A luxe scarf that’ll elevate any look, this one your fashionable friend would adore. You might remember seeing a similar print on a shirt here!

18. Allude Striped Cashmere Sweater : You know our love for stripes runs deep, and between the beautiful cashmere of the sweater and the gorgeous colors, we instantly knew it had to make its way into this gift guide.

19. Color Puzzle Game : Not just for the kids (although they would definitely want to get their hands on it), this puzzle is pretty enough to leave out, and next time you have friends over for drinks, it’s sure to be a hit.

20. Nannacay Joana Multi Medium Tote : This is the perfect beach bag. While it might be hard to think of going to the beach right now given the cold weather coming our way, it’s perfect for vacation or to have ready when summer hits next year. And those pom poms!

Gift Guide


  1. Karla says:

    I first saw the Sophie Hulme bag and fell in love. I don’t have anything like this in my closet! To have it would be like carrying around sunshine and happiness.?

  2. Aubrey says:

    Seriously though, I had seen just the rainbow version of that Sophie Hulme bag and I was already smitten, but glittered??? Dead. It’s something that my current fashion tastes and my 6 year-old Rainbow Brite loving self can agree on! But Edie Parker, man do you make spectacular stuff…those clutches are just so gorgeous yet unexpected, perfect combo for a night out (did you hear that husband??? ?). I’ve always appreciated your deep and abiding love for bold color choices, like that International Delights commercial “I expected to be delighted” and I’m never disappointed ❤️????

  3. Erin says:

    I knew this would be my favorite day of your gifting ideas, Carrie! I ❤️ Every single item on this list! The Vogue coloring book! How fun! The rainbow bag charm & rainbow tote & clutch are amazing! Totally gonna add these to my Christmas wish list! ??❤️

    OMG! Last day to enter. The time has gone by so fast. Kitsch hair ties are so essential for any girl. Edie Parker is always a good choice. Malin + Goetz travel kit works for this traveler. Deborah Lippmann nail polish I have been wanting to try and is my favorite out of all the gifts. Personally I like the other color gift guides better, but this one was still fun. I love that you did these gift guides. They gave me inspiration on what to buy.

  14. Lisa Phillips says:

    I love scarves, fun way to dress up a plain simple sweater for going out and wanting to be warm and comfortable and kick up the fashion a bit, and a multifunction item, can use on a table or shelf to decorate room like the old days doilies;-)

  15. Madison says:

  16. Nikki C. says:

  17. Megan says:

    I’m loving the pattern of that yoga mat! So fun! Great ideas!

  29. JessZ says:
