Fungi-fied apparel and toadstool-shaped decor are taking over as one of the hottest trends for the fall . That means that mushroom gifts are a foolproof option this year. Virgos, take note.
The cottagecore aesthetic is still going strong, and there’s no better season to embrace it than autumn. City-dwellers flock to the country to see the vibrant foliage, enjoy apple picking, and sneeze their way through hayrides. And the woodsy mushroom vibe fits in perfectly.
So why not take a little souvenir to enjoy year-round?
We found the coolest ‘shroom gifts for anyone who wears Birkenstocks and bakes focaccia bread every weekend. Between graphic tees, kitchen gear, jewelry, books, and decorations, this list is a forest dweller’s dream. Even if you only dwell in forests in your dreams.
23 Mushroom Gifts for Cottagecore Aficionados
1. Handmade Clay Mushroom Earrings, $15
