If someone you know loves mythical creatures - dragons, unicorns, and the like - why not buy them a beautiful figurine that captures the magic of these wondrous beings? I'm a lover of these amazing creatures and nothing makes me happier than a lovely figurine of a dragon, unicorn, or pegasus. And then there's Nessie to remind me of my home in Scotland, always welcome too of course!
These work especially well for Christmas as well as birthdays, graduations, Mothers Day (I'd go for that one!), Valentines, or any special occasion for a lover of mythical creatures.
(The Nessie figurine shown above is designed by my husband and available from Shapeways.)
