Based on what you’d see in pretty much every text message on my phone right now, it’s clear that emojis aren’t just for kids. Yes, I might have even used one in an email the other day. I know I’m not alone in the grown-up emoji-lover camp, which is why I had a blast rounding up all these fun emoji gifts. Sure, kids would love them, well, most of them that is, but I’ve got a few of them on my wish list too.
Here, a bunch of emoji gifts in every price range — yes even DIY — that would make fabulous holiday gifts.
