Chances are someone in your life absolutely loves Dolly Parton.
In fact, there are likely quite a few people in your circle that look up to her, and for good reason. The legendary songwriter, performer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist doesn't take herself too seriously yet continues to make brilliant business decisions. Plus, when Parton's not donating a million dollars for medical research or quite literally saving a child from oncoming traffic, she is charming us with a joke or storybook song — anything to garner a smile and a laugh.
With so many accomplishments under her (likely rhinestone-embellished) belt, it's easy to be inspired by Parton. Whether you admire her music, business-savvy mind, or her "the higher the hair, the closer to God" attitude, Parton unites people from all walks of life, and her fans' love spans generations. So what do you give someone who loves Dolly Parton? Oh, let us show you. It's truly our pleasure.
There is a wide range of Dolly-inspired gifts available for any age group or fan level, including children's books written by Parton and pet costumes from her recently-launched Doggy Parton line. Whether you know someone is a die-hard fan who needs to wear a Dolly sweatshirt daily or you think a friend could benefit from a "What Would Dolly Do?" reminder every now and then, you can't go wrong with these Dolly Parton-inspired gifts.
Dolly Parton Books (About Her and by Her)
Depending on your Parton obsession level, you may or may not know that she is a huge advocate for children's literacy. Her non-profit organization, the Imagination Library, has sent over 193 million free books to children worldwide. Any child registered in the Imagination Library program receives a book in the mail every month from the time they're born to age five (at no cost to their family).
It's safe to say that Parton and reading go hand in hand, so your Dolly-loving friend will undoubtedly appreciate one of her books, whether it's her autobiography or a beautifully-designed coffee table book like Dolly Parton, Songteller. And in true Dolly fashion, there are many children's books dedicated to telling her inspiring story, as well as those that encourage kids to dream big.
