If you know someone who loves octopuses but don’t know what to get them then this post is for you. From home decor to apparel, you will find octopus gifts you most likely haven’t seen before.
Growing up I used to be scared of octopuses because of how they were depicted in Little Mermaid. With Ursula the sea witch, appearing to look like an unfriendly and evil octopus, it did affect my perception of them.
While an octopus can be dangerous, as they do have 8 arms and some can be highly venomous, they are also highly intelligent creatures with outstanding camoflage abilities.
As a scuba diver, I’ve grown to love and admire these fascinating creatures of the sea. Instead of being afraid of them, I now look forward to octopus encounters. They are no longer intimidating but more intriguing.
And to be honest, now that I have new-found admiration and respect for them, I wouldn’t mind receiving octopus themed gifts once in a while!
