The best turtle gifts for the turtle lover on your list. 43 turtle gifts, including gifts for home, kitchen, kids, and fashion and jewelry.
For 38 years now, my mom and I have exchanged turtle-themed gifts for every birthday and Christmas. There have been a lot of turtle soaps, turtle jewelry, turtle clothes, sea turtle decor, a turtle mug, and even some TURTLES® candies! We both have a sweet tooth and a soft spot for that charming turtle with a top hat and monocle, so I don’t mind!
And now, after years of blogging under the name A Turtle’s Life for Me, people in the community have started referring to me as That Turtle Girl! I love it!!
For one, because at 30-something years old, they can call me girl any time they want! It always beats ma’am. ALWAYS.
But also because it helps reinforce my turtle themed tagline “living life from the slow lane”. It’s not my tagline just because I thought it sounded catchy. It’s because it truly is the way I try to live my life.
Everybody is always in such a hurry to run from one activity to the next. I want to encourage people to slow down (like a turtle) and enjoy the moment. Delight in all the little things that make up our lives!
And since people already call me That Turtle Girl, why not delight in some turtle gifts!
This holiday season, I’m going to try to live by my motto. And I also want to encourage my loved ones to do so too. And plan to gift turtle gifts to me nearest and dearest to remind them that life is too short, and we should all try to slow down and enjoy each moment!
As a turtle lover myself, and as someone who has received a lot of turtle jewelry, turtle art, turtle figurines, and more over the years, I wanted to share this list of great turtle gifts.
Whether you have a turtle lover you need to shop for, or want to remind your loved ones that life is best enjoyed from the slow lane, I hope my list of turtle gifts inspires you!
Turtle Themed Kitchen and Dining Gifts
From turtle wine glasses to a sea turtle mug, these cute turtle kitchen gift ideas are a great choice for someone who loves to cook, bake, or linger over a delicious meal.
Channel laid-back turtle vibes with this cool, artisan mug made of stoneware. It is oversized for endless sipping and microwave- and dishwasher-safe. I LOVE the turquoise coloring, which reminds me of an elegant sea turtle coasting through the water, enjoying life in the slow lane!
Bring some style to your beach-themed (or turtle themed) table spread with this gorgeous Earthenware turtle serving dish. It is over nine inches long and could double as an accent piece. While it isn’t super deep, this light blue sea turtle would be great for serving something shallow, like a tomato bocconcini salad or a meat and cheese plate.
Classy and cool, this set of two cute sea turtle serving dishes features two turtles with a modern swirl design on their shells. The largest is just over eight inches at the longest point, and the smaller one is just over five inches. They make a great set for entertaining!
Channel your inner chef with this sea-life themed apron featuring a large sea turtle gliding through the ocean. The turtle design is position front and center, giving it a bold, statement look. It is made of polyester and comes in one-size-fits-most, with an adjustable strap at the neck. Works for women or men.
Made of crystal and featuring a mama turtle with her baby tagging along for a ride on her back, this candy dish is an elegant piece that is perfect for serving goodies at any event. A great birthday gift or holiday gift idea for someone who makes their own candy or loves to entertain. Would also work as a small jewelry or trinket box.
Featuring a neutral, beachy background and beautiful hues of blue, this burlap table runner is the perfect trendy accessory for any laid-back, beach-themed room. The sea turtles have a slightly abstract design to them, making this a modern looking turtle gift for a summer table.
Bright, colorful and versatile, this turtle towel is made out of 100% cotton flour sack material and can be used as a kitchen towel, tea towel or even a bar towel. The original artwork features a gorgeous green and yellow sea turtle, and it’s sure to become a favorite kitchen towel. Would nicely compliment bright and beachy decor.
Adorable and functional, this tea ball allows you to sip your tea with style. The ball itself is made of durable stainless steel and the turtle charm brings a personalized touch to tea time. If you know someone who is a turtle lover and a tea aficionado, this unique turtle gift is a slam dunk!
Bring a bit of laid-back elegance to your table setting with these handcrafted, 100% flour sack cotton napkins. Each one portrays a simple and beautiful sea turtle that is ink-transferred by the artist. With this gift, you’re also giving an eco friendly alternative to disposable napkins, which I’m sure an actual sea turtle and its marine life buddies would thank you for.
Ideal for a wedding gift, anniversary gift, or housewarming gift, this charming cutting board is made of long-lasting bamboo and features two smooching turtles along with personalized names and a date. This is one of the cutest sea turtle gifts for a couple, but could make a nice birthday gift too.
