Your African Gift Inspired by African Wildlife

Whimsical Collection is a proudly South African company creating ‘African’ gifts featuring designs painted by Dezireë Smith.

Our collection of stretched canvases, magnets, beach bags, cosmetic bags, cards, signed prints, gift tags, placemats, and scatter cushions is a celebration of African wildlife. Made in South Africa, our ranges, seasonally new and different, always feature the Big 5 along with the hippo and wild dog so often overlooked. Future ranges will include a wider variety of African wildlife. Each product in the whimsical family has been handcrafted and is exclusive to us.

Since 2013, the Whimsical Collection team has grown steadily.

Our products are primarily handmade in our warehouse by a dedicated team of craftsmen and women from the local community, and each product features one of Dezireë’s whimsical designs – elevating everyday objects to collectible art status.

Wildlife and conservation remain key focus areas for the team, and we donate to various charities supporting our indigenous animals and conservation efforts in South Africa. Adding to our collections and product offerings regularly means you will always find something new to be excited about in the Whimsical Collection! The perfect gift with collectible-quality awaits!


We promote the plight of endangered African animals by donating to ‘Care for Wild’, dedicated to rearing the baby rhinos that lost their mothers to poaching.
