While the audience of this blog is mostly lolita fans, my hope that you can use these gift guides as a helpful hint for the well meaning friends and family who need ideas. Feel free to send this link to your parents, leave this tab open on your significant other’s computer, or print out a copy for grandma. Maybe they’ll get the idea.
Lolita fashion is an international phenomena, so its not surprising that there are friendships that span the globe. This year perhaps more than ever, friends and family might not have the chance to see each other in person. Here are four gifts you can give your lolita friends, no matter where you live.
If your lolita friends love reading or browsing magazines, check out Dentelles Lolita and Just Below the Knee’s digital zines. I’ve reviewed both here on Wunderwelt Libre if you need help picking one.
Art commissions are a great way to relive a fond memory, celebrate a gorgeous coordinate, and support independent artists. If you don’t follow any artists, check out #eglart or #lolitaart on Instagram to see some talented artists and see if they’re taking commissions. If you have a copy of Dentelles Lolita, you can also check out the list of their contributing artists.
This may be tricky to pull off if you’re not familiar with your lolita’s town, but see if you can find the photographers credited in their photos. If they live near Texas, you can gift them a photo session at KuroShiro Kawaii.
