Now if you have any animal lovers on your list then you might want to consider heading over to the Vancouver Aquarium for some great gift ideas. Something you can totally do without having to buy admission to the Aquarium itself if you are running in trying to check people off your list this holiday season. The Vancouver Aquarium has an endless supply of amazing gift ideas and even ways you can make your gift and charity efforts work hand in hand. With proceeds going to help fund the aquarium and all its conservation efforts it is a brilliant way to feel good about every gift you buy from them.
For Sloth Lovers
They have an endless supply of adorable stuffies to choose from. All the stuffies are great quality and totally to die for if you love sloths yourself or have a hubby like mine who wishes he was one. Either way they have a great selection of items to choose from: socks, stamps, stickers, toys, and even underwear for those particularly slow days! This loveable little creature can cover your whole house if you have been a good boy or girl this year.
For Wannabe Mermaids
In your life they always have a great selection of choices. From beautiful seashell themed ornaments to octopus tables they have exactly what the mermaid princess on your list has been searching for. I do have to admit that I have never wanted a table more than when I first laid eyes on their teal octopus glass top table. Paired with their blue and silver serving tray and glasses would really just take the whole look up a notch in the posh department.
For Bubble Splashers
There were so many great toys for those younger kids out there. My favorite of all the choices were their bath tub toys. They have every animal under the sun that are perfect for splashing around in the tub with. From wind up toys that swim through the water to large bags of different animals they have it all for any bath tub loving baby. I think one of the best things I found for the tub were their glowing jelly fish balls! They were fantastic and I don’t think need to be kept for just the tub if you have little ones who love jellies and are afraid of the dark. This item would work brilliantly as a portable night light for bathroom breaks in the middle of the night etc…
For Clingy Friends
You know that friend of yours who loves to give hugs and is always up for a phone call chat or facebook conversation. The amazing friend who deserves all the love in the world, the kind of love only a huge squid shaped stuffie could bring. This amazing creation can be your friends new best friend, keep her safe at night while giving her all the comfort in the world with its tentacles. It took everything in my body to not leave with this squid.
For Penguin Lovers
I am not sure I know anyone who isn’t a penguin fan and luckily for you the Vancouver Aquarium has something for all of them. There is no short supply of penguin stuffies, clothing, toys and even hats! A penguin object for any occasion and ideal for anyone this Christmas. Their little penguin mugs and slippers are totally to die for and would be great for any instagramer on your list. Their penguin face butt pjs for kids are the cutest things I have ever laid eyes on and a great idea for Christmas jammies this season.
Of course for those of you who would prefer to give or receive an adventure over more things then you are in luck. The aquarium offers a wide range of great experiences: parties, adult only events with great wine and lovely ocean wise nibbles, to family sleepovers that can be an incredible bonding experience. They even offer great one on one experience with the animals where you can learn a bit about them, get some quiet time with them and feed them with the time is right! You can even get a membership for someone who loves to go as often as possible. Giving the gift of education and beautiful animals will always be a brilliant idea! During the holidays it is extra special with visits from Scuba Claus and a great holiday movie in their 4D theatre.
I hope this holiday season you will think of the Vancouver Aquarium for some of your shopping!
