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!

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.

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.
