If a friend or family member loves ducks, treat him to a themed holiday or birthday present. Celebrate his passion for the feathered animals by choosing a duck-inspired decor piece, edible item or toy, among other ideas. Make your own duck-themed gift using craft items or baked goods as a thoughtful touch. Duck-inspired pieces also make ideal baby shower gifts.
Rubber Ducky Cupcakes
Whip up a batch of whimsical rubber ducky-inspired cupcakes as baby shower favours or for a duck lover with a sweet tooth. If you're short on time, buy plain chocolate or vanilla cupcakes and decorate them at home. For a simple yet eye-catching look, top the cupcakes with light blue-coloured buttercream frosting. Top the baked goods with yellow plastic duck-inspired cake toppers. Surround the toppers with mini marshmallows to resemble bubbles in a bathtub. As another option, top vanilla or chocolate-frosted cupcakes with yellow duck-shaped marshmallow candies such as Peeps. Present the charming cupcakes in a decorative box or on a covered glass cake stand.
Duck-Inspired Gift Basket
If you're attending a baby shower, create a duck-inspired gift basket appropriate for either gender. Start with a woven basket the recipient can use for storing bibs, towels or other items. Fill the basket with sweet duck-themed baby necessities such as embroidered bibs, sleepers, towels and a receiving blanket. Include rubber ducky bath toys and a yellow duck-inspired plush. Duck-themed nursery items include a patterned picture frame, a crib mobile and a hand-decorated yellow light switch frame. Slip handmade yellow-frosted duck-shaped cookies into the basket for the baby's parents to enjoy.
Home Decor Gifts
Treat a nature lover to authentic-looking duck decor items. The recipient can use the pieces to infuse a living room, den, library or home office with a touch of casual elegance. A wood-framed mirror featuring etched mallard duck designs will look charming hanging on any wall in the recipient's home. If you're looking for a large home decor gift, a coffee table featuring a solid wood base and a glass top with etched loon designs will fit the bill. Other gift ideas include a table lamp featuring a duck-patterned shade, hand-carved wooden duck decoys and a cosy cotton throw blanket displaying woven duck designs. Include a pair of duck-themed decorative pillows with the blanket as a thoughtful gift.
