I am a huge animal lover and ever since I was a toddler, dolphins have been my favorite animals in the world. They just seem so happy and playful and kind. For me, receiving any kind of dolphin-themed gift for any occasion would be a dream come true. As such, when it comes to gifts for dolphin lovers, I really know what I’m talking about.
I have created a list of the best dolphin gift ideas ranging from cool dolphin items to thrilling adventures that will let the receiver know that you really know him and show how much you care.
A mind-blowing dolphin adventure
Swimming with dolphins is most dolphin lovers’ biggest dream. While swimming with them at a theme park, where you can touch them and take photos with them may sound appealing, most true dolphin lovers are not willing to support captive dolphin facilities, as such, it’s way better to give the dolphin gift receiver an authentic experience with the sweet animals in the wild.
A thoughtful dolphin gift for her
If you are looking for a lovely dolphin gift for your mom, sister, wife, or girlfriend who is totally into dolphins, buying her a cute pair of dolphin earrings may be a wonderful idea. Every time she will look in the mirror and see a sparkly dolphin in her ears, she will have no choice but to smile with joy.
Depending on the occasion and her style, you can buy her a sweet pair of sterling silver earrings with color-shifting opal stones, the romantic sterling silver and gold plated double heart dolphin earrings or 14K gold dolphin earrings.
A great dolphin gift for adults and kids alike
When it comes to cool dolphin stuff and dolphin-themed gifts, dolphin phone cases must be one of the best. Why? Simply because nowadays, our phones are the one thing we tend to hold in our hands and look at most often. Having a dolphin-themed phone case will enable your dolphin lover friend to look at these marvelous animals virtually all the time. A dolphin phone case would make a great dolphin gift for him or her, for the young or the old.
Depending on which phone your dolphin-loving friend has, buy him/her an iPhone case or perhaps a phone case for a Samsung smartphone. In case your friend’s love for dolphins comes from their love for Miami Dolphins and you are searching for a Miami Dolphins gift idea, you can buy them a Miami Dolphins phone case.
4. Dolphin Art
The obvious gift for the dolphin lovers
When thinking about dolphin things, dolphin-themed art is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Buying your favorite dolphin fan a dolphin painting or figurine may be the obvious choice, but it is also a safe choice, as every dolphin lover loves to decorate his home with dolphin art.
A bathroom decor for dolphin lovers
Chances are that the dolphin lover in your life also loves water and taking baths. And nothing would thrill a full-blown dolphin enthusiast more than to have some kind of dolphin bath decor to look at and enjoy while taking a bath.
It could be a shower curtain, a bath mat, a towel, or an entire dolphin bathroom set. And while you may think that no self-respecting adult would want to play with a bath toy, I have to admit that I would jump into a bathtub full of dolphin bath toys head-first anytime.
You might want to take a look at gifts for lovers of other animals too!
A cozy dolphin present
Dolphin lovers obviously love dolphins. And when you love something, you want to hug it and wrap yourself around it. Therefore, a warm, soft, and cozy dolphin blanket would make a wonderful dolphin gift that would cheer your friend and light up his/her face even on the darkest day.
7. Dolphin Book
A great gift for the person who wants to learn more about dolphins
Dolphins are fascinating animals, for sure! They are not just super cute. They are also empathetic, playful, and incredibly intelligent. Perhaps your dolphin-loving friend may want to learn more about these amazing animals, the way they live, feel, and tick.
He or she may enjoy reading New York Times’ bestseller Voices in the Ocean: A Journey into the Wild and Haunting World of Dolphins, How to Speak Dolphin – a heartwarming novel by Ginny Rorby, or Scott O’Dell’s Island of the Blue Dolphins. Alternatively, you can also choose a dolphin coloring book.
A personalized dolphin gift
We tend to start the day with a soothing cup of hot coffee or tea. And while the drink may wake us up, the mug can set the tone for the day. And believe me when I tell you that a true dolphin lover wouldn’t appreciate a mug with a motivational quote or an empowering motif nearly as much as a personalized dolphin mug. Seeing a dolphin’s elegant shape or cute smile would make sure that your dolphin lover friend starts the day with a smile.
The perfect dolphin gift for kids
In case you are searching for the perfect dolphin gift for girls or boys, opting for a simple dolphin toy is probably the best way to go. Kids that love dolphins just want to touch them, kiss them, and hold them. As holding a real dolphin is more or less impossible, a stuffed dolphin is the best and snuggliest alternative.
A kind and unique dolphin gift
When I was younger I loved dolphins selfishly – I just wanted to watch them and touch them (at least in the form of a stuffed toy), without ever considering what the dolphins want. Now, I only care about what they want. And all they want is to be free and safe. If the dolphin lover in your life feels the same way, he or she would love nothing more but to support a non-profit charitable organization, dedicated to the wellbeing and protection of dolphins.
