I’ve been told I’m hard to buy gifts for. As a card carrying member of the Crazy Chicken Lady club I can say that’s not true. You can walk into any store and buy something with a chicken on it and I’m happy.
But sometimes you just need more guidance, and you don’t want to leave your house. Online shopping exists for the
lazy shopping averse, I’m in that club too by the way. If you have a chicken lover on your gift list this year I’ve got you covered.
Gifts for People with Chickens
The best part of keeping chickens is fluffy butts. The next best is all those pretty fresh eggs. I put a lot of work into getting a variety of colors and sizes (by that I mean I click buttons on the hatchery website…) and I’d like to show them off.Luckily there are quite a few options for showing off the goods. A spiral egg holder is a great way to keep the eggs separated by freshness. It would look really cool with different colored eggs. Unfortunately my asshole cats would undoubtedly kill it and break all the eggs!
This chicken topped egg basket is much more practical for my uses. I sell most of my eggs in recycled cartons but keep the ones for home use on the counter by the stove. I’ve accidentally broken many an egg with a dropped plate or spoon.
One last option, perfect for those with a small flock is a counter top ceramic egg holder. This particular version is from Le Creuset and comes in several colors to match a variety of kitchens.
Now that you’ve got the egg display down, what about actually collecting them? Personally I shove them in my pockets and hope for the best but there are better methods 😉 This egg collection basket has coated wire to protect the eggs.
I have one and I love it but it’s been stolen by my little monsters. Really, it’s 100x better than the pocket method. For example, you’ll never break an egg on your band new cell phone.
One more amazing gift for the chicken lover in your life is a pair of rubber garden chicken shoes! I saw these in TSC last summer and desperately wanted a pair but they didn’t have them in the gigantic size 11 I needed so I had to pass.
If you’re looking for a great gift and you know you’re chicken lover will be buying chicks in the spring a hatchery gift certificate is always a welcome gift!
Kitchen Gifts for People who Love Chickens
Most chicken lovers I know enjoy filling their homes with chicken items. The kitchen is a great place for that! You’ve got tons of practical doo dads and gadgets anyway, why not make them chicken themed?
Most chicken lovers have lots of eggs to use up and that means baking! A chicken patterned apron is a great gift for the baker in your life. Aprons make great gifts because they’re one size fits all, you don’t have to worry about giving the wrong size as a present.
After you’ve got the apron you might as well get a few kitchen gadgets too, maybe for a chicken themed gift basket? This set of adorable nesting (pun!?) chicken measuring cups would look great on the counter and the nesting means they don’t take up a lot of room, perfect for those of us with overflowing kitchen drawers!
Another adorable kitchen give is this set of ceramic chicken measuring spoons, it comes with a ceramic chicken that holds 4 individually labeled measuring spoons. This one is so cute I can’t see it ever hidden away.
One of my prized possessions is a white milk glass chicken bowl I picked up at an antiques mall. This covered chicken butter dish has the same vibe. I love the addition of the red to the classic white chicken, it makes it more homey.
One last idea, a chicken wine bottle holder. You know, those of us that drink with or because of our chickens.
T-Shirts for Chicken Lovers
T-shirts are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe, whether you’re hiding them under your clothing during a high pressure board meeting or rocking one on the couch on a lazy Sunday while you sip some hot tea. It tuns out you can also find a bunch of chicken t-shirts, and they make awesome gifts!
Cheap & Fun Gifts for Chicken Lovers
Gift shopping can really add up, especially if you have a long list to buy for. The last little group of gift items is packed with cheap finds for less than $10.
This is the gift that inspired this whole list. Last year for Christmas my boyfriend bought me a set of chicken foot socks. I’m a sock hater from way back but I love these! They make great stocking suffers or give them as a quirky birthday gift to your chicken obsessed friend.
Little zipper pouches make great gifts, epecially they’re decorated with chickens & when they’re stuffed with little goodies like Chicken Poop Lip Balm. The lip balm is $10.95 so technically over budget for my imaginary category but you get six tubes so I’m allowing it 😉
If your friend is a fan of all that glitters you should check out this Rhinestone Rooster Keychain. It’s cute, cheap and sparkly!
This chicken coffee mug is a great gift for anyone that needs a little more than a crowing rooster to get going in the morning.
The last little gift is perfect for the chicken lover on the go! This Crazy Chicken Lady Vinyl Decal would be adorable on any car window, it’s only fair to warn everyone what they’re dealing with right?
I hope you’ve found the perfect gift for the crazy chicken lady or man in your life! If you’re my mom or boyfriend I wear a size 11 shoe and an XL tshirt 😉
