Need gift ideas for backyard chicken keepers and the chicken obsessed in 2020? I’m here to help! This is my speciality, lol. I love my backyard chickens, but my style is more vintage/modern – less farmhouse chic. While it’s easy to find chicken gifts that are more country/folk, it’s harder to find modern gifts for chicken lovers. So here are some cool and contemporary gift ideas for the chicken lovers in your life – from affordable stocking stuffers to a $1200 egg necklace I CANNOT stop thinking about!
I am trying really hard not to order these chicken flats for myself, but it’s proving near impossible because these shoes embody all of my favorite things: chickens, the color aqua, a cute vintage aesthetic – plus I love this chill, cotton canvas kind of slip on shoe. I live in this type of footwear, come spring and summer!
Normally art with chickens is very farm/country but this Barred Rock hen art print is modern and fun, with a muted color paletted I love. It’s made with fine art paper and archival inks and there are other chicken breeds available too.
Times like these make face masks a practical gift for anyone, BUT chicken keepers will continue to use them because they’re handy for cleaning out the coop and stuff. I didn’t wear one at first, but now I do and this one is super cute.
I don’t even eat devilled eggs but I want one of these egg trays, just for fun – mostly for photos! This muted teal and the vintage vibe of the Fiestaware is perfection (but it comes in other colors too!).
I love a useful gift! These egg shaped beeswax candles are pure beeswax from the maker’s own bees – that’s something most chicken keepers will love because once you get into backyard chickens, you look for more and more ways to simplify life and look for natural picks for everything from candles to groceries to clothing.
This is vintage so act fast because there is only one! This West German pottery vase, shaped like an egg, is a timeless piece with vintage flair (made in the 1960s) but also feels fresh and modern – and will delight any chicken keepers!
I love these covered dishes shaped like hens and they’re super practical. I really love this carnival glass one, because it’s so iridescent and beautiful, but I’ve also seen them in jadeite and milk glass and other colors.
A little more ethereal than the crisp art above, this watercolor print of a hen is beautiful and whimsical.
I love the style of these chickens and this is a useful gift, which is always my preference!
Made in the Ukraine, this beech rolling pins imprints dough with hens, roosters, chicks and eggs! I love it!
We can’t forget vintage Pyrex! The butterprint is a classic pattern, in turquoise with a mod motif featuring chickens! One of the first patterns I collected, I’m newly interested in this design.
You can find it at thrift store, antique stores, or Etsy and eBay because it’s incredibly common but still a treasure. Mixing bowls, butter dishes, fridgies – you name it! There are even people using the pattern to make modern items, like this printed mug and face mask (another cute stocking stuffer idea!).
Egg stamps are the cutest and lots of shops sell them – you can even get custom stamps for egg cartons and food safe ink. I have zero need for this but, as a backyard chicken keeper, I really want one for when I give eggs as gifts.
I am OBSESSED with this egg and claw necklace by Annette Ferdinandsen. I love that it’s 14k gold and holding a turquoise egg, but I can’t afford to spend $1155 on a necklace. Ohhhhh, but I want to! And this is heirloom quality jewelry that can be passed down for generations – or from chicken lover to chicken lover, lol. I have tried to DIY my own (no joke) but it did not end well. Le sigh. I pine for this a lot.
Here’s a WAY more affordable pendant necklace for backyard chicken keepers – choose from a chicken or egg, or both for a layered look.
I have a LOT of chicken themed socks and a chicken keeper can always use one more pair! Any chicken lover will appreciate more chicken socks and they make an easy gift to mail or give as a stocking stuffer.
This egg shaped bath mat is so quirky, but also still practical and soft and looks so beautiful in a neutral bathroom.
I actually use a Henrietta to boil my eggs, but not everyone likes to keep a separate gadget just for that. I’ve had Henrietta since I was a kid, though, so I’m attached! For anyone who boils eggs in a pot, this egg timer is the cutest little contraption.
For a regular chicken timer, this hen shaped one is adorable and comes in black and white.
Check out the rest of the shop, because this Etsy seller makes different colorways of this pretty chicken printed tea towel.
You HAVE to click through and look at the gorgeous cookies made with this chicken shaped cookier cutter, another perfect stocking stuffer for chicken people.
Ahhhhhh, this is adorable. It’s small, but so, so cute.
Farm fresh eggs still have the bloom, so they don’t need to be refrigerated! That means backyard chicken keepers can keep their eggs on the counter – and this solid acacia wood egg tray is the perfect complement to the beauty of colorful eggs. Here’s a link to another one.
Can’t go wrong with egg cups – as a chicken keeper, I love collecting them. This pottery style is super pretty and handmade.
The print on this table runner is super cute and the colorway is neutral enough to work in any home!
This trio of pale turquoise egg shaped planters are handmade ceramic and you can also buy them individually. I love how they look like a cracked open egg! And anyone with blue egg layers, like mine, with appreciate this beautiful gift. This is one of my FAVE gifts from this list because these are beautiful works of art. I bought myself expensive pottery, many moons ago, and I treasure the three pieces I bought more than a decade later.
When we got the copper roof, I really badly wanted a sailboat one of these and now I want the chicken copper weathervane. So pretty! And also a timeless gift a recipient will never tire of and treasure always.
I have no idea what it’s like to get so many eggs that you need this. I think our all-time pull for a day was five eggs? I might be imagining that, it seems high, lol. There’s just always someone broody, or it’s too weathery outside, or whatever, lol. But apparently people with productive chickens love these and this one has a mid-century inspired print and is made in Amish country.
If you don’t have chickens, you might not get it. I want one of these tutus. A bunch. So I’d be delighted to open a box and find a chicken tutu. Merry merry to us indeed, haha.
Another gorgeous vintage egg-shaped vase, in case my first recommendation is sold out. This has a beautiful glaze that’s speckled like some of the gorgeous eggs olive eggers and other breeds lay.
Most chicken keepers will already have books on how to raise chickens and feed them and treat their ailments, etc. But this book is about communicating with them and it’s a lovely read! Fun and sweet and full of chicken stories and practical advice and research into chicken behaviour, I read this for leisure and enjoyed every minute.
How sweet is this pattern on these chicken print napkins? So useful and adorable!
This glass chicken figurine is so irresistibly cute.
If you own a Cricut – you can even just buy iron-on letters – you can make this funny sweatshirt EVERY backyard chicken lover will love.
This egg scale is practical for anyone who sells eggs, but also just fun for weighing eggs as a hobby.
Okay, there are other animals alongside the chicken, but also it’s turquoise…. so….. love these stacked ceramic measuring cups.
I just love the aesthetic of this mug – along with the cute message! Of course, not good for lefties like me haha.
