There is a children’s museum near us that they remodeled a few years back. They now have one area which has a glass wall where you can watch otters swimming underwater. One day, my family stood there for an hour, just watching them chasing each other and playing. It was almost impossible to pull the kids away to see other parts of the museum.
I can’t blame them. We can’t help falling in love with these friendly creatures. If you know someone who loves these cuties as much as we do, then you will find something for them here with these adorable otter gifts that include both sea otter and river otter themes.
1. Garden Sculptures
Otter themed gifts for the home
I think these playful animals would look so cute in my front yard hiding in the plants, perched in the crook of a tree. They just add extra life to a yard. I’m sure other otter lovers will think so too.
For indoors, creative wall art, such as an otter photo canvas or whimsical signs, will look beautiful hanging on the living room wall. Don’t forget some otter coasters so guests don’t leave unsightly rings on the furniture. Plus they really tie a room together.
2. Funny Wine Glass
Otter merchandise for adults
These are great gag gifts, or secret santa gifts for wine lovers. You can even get a wine tumbler with a lid to take the beverage on the go.
Looking for a hostess gift? I like when people bring a bottle of wine to gatherings. The sad thing is that after the wine is gone, there is nothing to remember the gift by. Next time you want to bring wine as a hostess gift for an otter lover, give a sea otter wine stopper to go with it. This way, every time they open a bottle of wine, they will think of you.
For the beer drinker, get a sea otter pint glass, and pair it with a six pack of their favorite brew.
3. Rain Umbrella
Unique otter gifts
I have not seen these before. I actually found them by mistake. What good luck! Now otter lovers can take walks in the rain without getting drenched.
But when they do need to get drenched, to get clean, you can give them a sea otter shower curtain for their bathroom. To make a set, add in a bathmat. Some come with a matching toilet seat cover and toilet rug.
4. Classy Cufflinks
Otter gifts for him
When he gets dressed up, he can still show his love for these cute creatures by sporting them on his cuffs.
When it’s leisure time, he can wear an otter hat. These aren’t just for men. You can find hats for ladies too. Get him a cool otter keyring as well. Some have inspirational sayings, and some double as a bottle opener.
5. Holiday Ornament
Otter gifts for Christmas
Who wouldn’t want one of these cute ornaments? You can get one with two otters in a heart for a couple gift, or choose an ornament with a custom amount of otters as a gift for a family. Many allow for customization with name and year.
Don’t forget cozy otter Christmas sweaters. Get one for each member of the family, kids too. Make sure to include grandma and grandpa. For the littlest pups, fill an otter Christmas stocking full of goodies.
6. Otter Oven Mitts
Otter presents for the kitchen
The thing about oven mitts that makes them great gifts is that nobody can have too many. They get stained, and wear out easily for those who do a lot of cooking. Plus, I find that I always get food on them when pulling pans out of the oven. This means my laundry pile grows higher, and I need to grab a replacement set out. These cuties will make a big hit in the rotation.
I spend a lot of time in my kitchen cooking. I enjoy creating recipes from around the world to write about in my food blog. However, after standing on my tiled floor in my bare feet for a long time, my knees and ankles hurt. A cushioned floor mat would help ease the pressure. These decorative otter floor mats are adorable. They come in longer runner sets too.
You can also get some kitchen towels for drying hands or dishes.
7. Otter Throw Blanket
Cozy gifts for otter lovers
When the weather is cool, we like having the windows open for fresh air. However, sometimes the breeze and the dampness are too much for me, so I like to cuddle under a blanket. Even in the summer I keep a plush blanket on the couch to cuddle up with. Sometimes the air conditioning is too cold with the vent blowing on me. My cat likes to curl up on the soft plush blanket too. This blanket will fill those similar needs for otter lovers.
Our house is completely tiled, so my feet tend to get cold. Fuzzy otter slippers make great gifts for cold feet. For lazy days lounging around the house, get some otter pajamas. Nobody wants to go out when the temperature drops.
8. Sea Otter Necklace
Otter gifts for her
These necklaces are great as birthday gifts. For Mother’s Day you could give her a cute mommy and pup otter necklace. Or for an anniversary gift, choose a necklace with two otters kissing.
I prefer rings. There is a huge selection of otter rings to choose from. Some are tiny and delicate. Others look like painted artwork or detailed sculptures. It is hard to pick which one to get. Good thing I have ten fingers! You can also get sea otter earrings. Some are mounted on wires, but others have tiny studs, making them great otter presents for little girls.
9. Decorative Mouse Pad
Otter gifts for the office
Now that I am working at home, instead of teaching, I need to personalize my office space. It is important to do this even when your office is not at home. One way to achieve this is with a mousepad. These sea otter mouse pads will add some pizazz.
But that’s not all! You can also get an otter tape dispenser, and choose from several notepads to make lists or jot down memos.
You might want to take a look at gifts for lovers of other animals too!
10. Sea Otter Plush
Best otter gifts for kids
An otter teddy bear will be adored at any age. I remember going off to college and bringing a few stuffed animals with me to remind me of home. And I was in no way the only one. Stuffed animals are a comfort at any age, but especially for kids going through difficult times, such as gaining or losing family members, moving, or starting a new school.
Start kids on a path to learning science with some sea otter books for kids. When I taught preschool, the children were fascinated to learn animal facts. It was amazing the way their brains absorbed the information at that age. For the tiniest otter lovers, get some infant onesies. They come in both short and long sleeves, so they can wear otter gear all year long.
11. Whimsical Otter Mug
Otter themed gifts
An otter lover will love looking at these friendly creatures while sipping coffee every morning.
For bringing beverages on the go, they will appreciate an otter tumbler. Whether they like to take a second cup of coffee with them to work, or want to save the environment by ditching the plastic water bottles, they will find this gift useful. Do they prefer to bring healthy lunches rather than wasting money on takeout every day? They can enjoy their lunch with their favorite animal, by using a sea otter lunch box. These are great for school kids too.
12. School Backpack
Otter themed gifts for kids
These backpacks are great back to school gifts. But they don’t have to be just for kids. Teens and women often use backpacks as purses now, and men use them to tote their stuff around.
If you are making it a back to school gift, include a cute pencil case so they can easily find supplies, without having to dig around too much. You can also choose a few otter composition notebooks. They come in wide-ruled, as well as college-ruled.
