Hinduism associates the peacock with Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and good luck. The bird with the magnificent tail is also an emblem of the Taoist goddess of compassion, Kuan Yin. Keep these qualities in mind when shopping for peacock-themed gifts. If you're looking for a gift for a friend or family member who loves the vibrant colours of peacock feathers, you have a wide range of choices from which to make your selection. No matter what the gender, age or hobbies of your friend, you can easily find a peacock gift to suit that individual.
Clothing and Accessories
For a wedding or other dressy event, a woman can wear a hat made with actual peacock feathers. A tie decorated with the image of a peacock feather can make a striking fashion statement for a man. You will find T-shirts in all sizes, including maternity and plus-size, bearing the immediately recognisable feather image. Select a feather-decorated tote-bag so your friend can carry books or groceries with the pride of a peacock. Everyday items become more distinctive when emblazoned with a peacock feather picture: baseball caps, canvas shoes, aprons and keychains are some of your options. You can even give someone to whom you are very close some peacock underwear, available in styles from thongs to briefs.
The person you gift can hang a poster or recline on a pillow decorated with the image of peacock feathers. If you have a tight budget, a person who loves these feathers will appreciate a bouquet of them to place in a vase. You can often find individual feathers at relatively inexpensive prices at many craft and decorating stores. You will also find peacock calendars and clocks, as well as small items like magnets, mugs, and coasters adorned with the image of this bird's feathers.
Your giftee may enjoy writing his diary or just his to-do lists in a journal with a peacock cover. She can communicate elegantly with friends on a wide range of stationary and greeting cards using this visual theme. You can even buy peacock stamps to cover the postage. Give someone just starting out in an artistic line of work a box of personalised peacock business cards. Give someone who can't live without his smart phone a peacock case in which to carry it.
Give a dog-loving friend a peacock T-shirt or coat for her pooch. Buy a skateboarding friend a colourful new board to ride. If your friend gets around in a more conventional way, give her a peacock-adorned number plate frame. Present your friends who just became parents with a peacock-themed baby bib.
