Etsy Christmas Gift Guide: Skulls

Ceramic skull planter

Ceramic skull planter by Mud Puppy

If there’s one thing in competition for my love of all things sparkly, its anything with a skull on it… much to my mother and my husband’s dismay! I’m not sure where this slightly macabre fascination came from but if there’s something in a shop in the shape of a skull I am instantly drawn to it.

I don’t like ugly or hyper realistic skulls mind, just the pretty ones in candy colours or covered in glitter. I know you understand.

If there’s someone in your life with the same weird obsession, I’m sure you’ll be able to find them a gift from this collection. I’ll have one of each please.

  1. I have the same thing! I secretly want a pink glitter skull in my house, but I’m not sure the BF would go for it. Btw, I was insanely fascinated and excited when I got to visit the Chapel of Bones in Faro, Portugal. Completely decorated in skulls. Fascinating! I’ve written about it too, and seems more people share this odd fascination 😉 (sadly, no glitter there..)

    Explorista- wow that sounds awesome. I have to keep my skull collection in my office as Gareth wont allow them in the rest of the house haha!

  3. Ahhhh I LOVE skulls! My husband has one tattooed on his chest… I’m looking to get one tattooed somewhere as well. I’ve had shoes with skulls on them and had a mini white ceramic skull on my bedside table.
    ThankYou for compiling this nice little pile of skully skulls! x
