It’s not hard to see why a cute giraffe is a favorite animal among many. They have so much personality – ranging from majestic to goofy and everything in-between. (Malcolm from Madagascar is SO lovable!)
We scouted around for cool giraffe gift ideas for those quirky people who identify as a little preoccupied with the gangly beauties. After some deliberation, we chose these giraffe gifts to help you for your next gift for Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or just because you want a special gift for that animal lover in your life.
World Giraffe Day will be here before you know it (June 21, 2021), so let’s get shopping.
Gifts for Giraffe Aficionados Everywhere
1. Fading Giraffe Wall Art
The modern feel of this monochrome giraffe print is so versatile, it would fit right in with any contemporary decor. It’s available in eight sizes on print or canvas, and five color schemes. As with all of Minted’s fine art, it can be framed in-house with twelve classic or specialty moulding options and four borders/matting options.
2. Donation to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation
If you want to give a wonderful gift that’ll pull at their heartstrings, make a donation to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation in your giraffe lover’s name. Every donation contributes to giraffe conservation initiatives in sixteen African countries, including education for humans about the unique needs of the giraffe, giraffe translocation efforts, and environmental conservation.
3. Plant Eater Giraffe Sculpture
Who wouldn’t want to wake every morning to this fun gift idea — a giraffe serenely feeding on foliage in the backyard!
These beautiful steel lawn ornaments would make a gorgeous addition to any yard. Better than plastic flamingoes any day. (Sorry, flamingo fanatics!)
Each giraffe is made from 16 gauge cold-rolled steel that darkens to an even prettier patina over time. Mama measures 19″L x 4″W x 45″H, Baby measures 15″L x 3″W x 34″H.
4. Hipster Giraffe Apron
by HGOD Designs
Cool guy, indeed. Not only are we a little bit in love with the giraffe design on this apron, but the apron itself is also really well made. It’s made from three layers of extra-durable waterproof fabric with a polyester outer layer for easy clean-up. The next strap is adjustable for one-size-fits-all flexibility. Machine washable, delicate cycle.
5. Calm Giraffe Dish Towel
Everyone should have this little baby giraffe in their kitchen. His serene smile is a perfect example of why this cute animal is so awesome. And so polite, too! “Kindly do not alter my calm.” If we all set boundaries like that, we’d all be a lot more chill.
This kitchen towel is made from 100% lint-free, absorbent cotton. Machine washable, no bleach.
6. Gift Wish Giraffe Bracelet
Speaking of great messages, the concept behind what the giraffe printed on this card represents is inspirational to those of us everywhere who are proud to be a little different. We thought this would be an especially sweet giraffe jewelry gift for a pre-teen or teenager who needs a little reminder that she’s amazing. Just as she is.
The card is personalizable, and the bracelet is available in a ton of colors.
7. Naked Giraffe Poster Wall Art
by Etsy: AlltheFrillsRibbon
Hilarious giraffe art isn’t so hard to come by, but this fun gift idea is at the top of the list! It comes in several sizes, perfect for a bathroom, guest bedroom, or powder room. Is it strange that we’re a little jealous of this giraffe’s soothing bath?
8. Girafficorn Pegasus Paper Doll Kit
Oh if only the mythical girafficorn pegasus were real. Take a moment and imagine it. We’ll wait.
Fantastic, right? Unfortunately, such magical creatures don’t exist, but this posable paper doll kit is the closest we’ll get. We thought it would make a perfect stocking stuffer as a toy gift for a kid, or perhaps as a teacher’s gift. Bring joy to anyone who loves all things giraffe.
9. “Olive” Vintage Giraffe Portrait
Giraffe art escalated: this graceful lady is perfect for any wall where giraffes are welcome. (We’re also quite inspired by her sense of restraint in refraining from eating that delicious plant.)
She’s available in three sizes, both in print and canvas. A set of six notecards with the same image are also available to grace mailboxes everywhere.
We guarantee your giraffe fan will adore her as much as we do.
10. Giraffe Tea Ball Infuser
by Etsy: GiftAndSupply
If your giraffe lover also happens to be a tea lover, this tea ball infuser would be right up their alley! It’s made from stainless steel, including the charming dangling giraffe charm. Bonus: If you’re brewing in a bigger pot, the charm is quite large and heavy enough to keep the infuser from getting lost in the teapot.
11. Giraffe Flip Shirt
by Etsy: CrazyDogTshirts
At L&L, we love these flip shirts. A great gift for your giraffe-obsessed friend, or just a friend who needs a little pick-me-up. The shirt comes in sizes S to 3XL and are even customizable.
12. Giraffe Wine Bottle Holder
How much fun is this gal having?! Gift her along with a nice bottle of wine, and you’ve got THE perfect hostess gift for your giraffe fan! The figure is hand-crafted from resin and weighs in at 2.2 lbs. – definitely hefty enough to keep that bottle in place.
13. Giraffe Bottle Stopper
We’re into the wine-related giraffe gifts, in case you hadn’t noticed. Or wine-related gifts, period, if we’re being honest. But lest you think us one-dimensional – both the wine holder and this beautiful bottle stopper can do double duty with bottles of artisanal olive oil, vinegar, etc.
It’s made from stainless steel and features a handy flat bottom, so it’ll stand up straight on a flat surface. (We thought that was a nice detail.)
14. Gia Giraffe Planter
A perfect gift for the giraffe lover with a green thumb! This gilded giraffe measures 10.5″H x 8.5″L 4.5″W, perfect for a small-to-medium-sized houseplant. It’s great for the kitchen, or anywhere a windowsill could use a little giraffe charm.
15. Giraffe Notebook
by Eve Emelia
“I just really like giraffes, OK?” As if anyone needs to defendtheir love for the noble creature that is the giraffe!
You may have also noticed we’re fans of a good quality journal because we include them in our gift lists relatively frequently. (See? It’s not all about the wine all the time.) It’s because they’re so versatile, useful, and there’s a notebook out there for whatever you’re into, including giraffes.
This one measures 6″ x 9″ and features 108 pages of unlined paper.
Personalized Giraffe Gifts
16. Custom Silver Bangle Bracelet
A bangle bracelet will always be a timeless gift, especially when it’s personalizable! This silver bangle bracelet includes a Swarovski birthstone charm, an initial letter charm, and an adorable giraffe charm. When ordering, in addition to selecting the birthstone and initial, be sure to include the bracelet’s size, and whether it’s for an adult or child.
17. Personalized Giraffe Pendant Necklace
If they’re more of a necklace person, this dainty giraffe charm necklace is a great option! A great necklace for layering, too.
The necklace is handcrafted from 925 sterling silver with yellow gold, rose gold, or silver plating. Select from sizes 13-20″ and specify the initial you’d like to include on the pendant for an extra-special gift.
18. Personalized Giraffe Puzzle Box
If you’re looking for a really unique gift, this keepsake box is it!
Handmade to order, this gift set features pieces like a puzzle that disassemble to reveal a beautiful keepsake or jewelry box. You can have it personalized on the bottom with a special message for that giraffe-obsessed special someone. She’ll love this gift so much, you may even make it to the level of giraffe on her “things-I-love” scale. If you’re lucky.
19. Personalized Night Light
by Etsy: LilysLights
We were gonna say this is perfect for a child’s room, but let’s face it, an adult giraffe lover would appreciate it just as much. It’d make a soothing nightlight for any bedroom or bathroom.
20. Giraffe Engraved Wooden Spoon
This handcrafted solid beechwood spoon features a beautifully detailed giraffe etching, and you can choose to engrave the handle with a special message, too. Give as a Mother’s Day gift, a stocking stuffer, hostess gift, or just because you know a cook who loves giraffes!
21. Custom Giraffe Mug
We love this giraffe’s bookish attitude – she’d definitely make a great afternoon-tea-with-a-good-book reading companion. Your giraffe enthusiast may also use it as a penholder for her desk, a cute makeup brush holder, or even a succulent planter. It’s made from 100% quality stoneware with a black design and white glazed finish. *Note* This mug isn’t microwave or dishwasher safe.
The Sky’s the Limit!
Or “Reach for the highest branch!”
Or “Stand Tall!”
You get it.
There are plenty of ways we can encourage our giraffe-loving friends to channel the noble majesty of their favorite animal. Whether it’s a personalized necklace, an inspirational t-shirt, or a conservation donation in their honor – we think we’ve found the perfect giraffe gift worthy of a spot at the top of the list.
The best part? You won’t even have to look high and low. Ha! Top of the list? High and low? Ok, we’re done here.
