Whale Housewares Gift Ideas

If you are looking for a gift for someone who loves the sea, sea animals or more specifically whales, then this post is for you. I stumbled upon some really cute whale patterned housewares at West Elm and realized that I wanted to see what other whale marvels I could find. It turns out there are many whale products (in case you have a nautical theme in your house or Moby Dick is your favorite book). Even if your house is not a shrine to the almighty ocean, you can still add a single cute whale to your decor. Why? I’ll tell you why; because these wonderful creatures don’t go out of style. Let’s begin our immersion into whale overload.

Whale Jacquard Towels

You get two different towels in one! Each side has the contrasting pattern of whales than the reverse. If you are feeling like you’d rather have white towels in your bathroom one day and feel like having gray the next day – go right ahead. Just fold them the right way :) These whale patterned towels are available in several sizes including bath towel, hand towel, and wash cloth.

Trending: Polka Dots

I have always loved polka dots. They are a classic pattern; they don’t really go out of style. However, there is a polka dot trend going on right now and polka dots are back in a big way. I have spotted dots on dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, bags, accessories, and even home goods! Needless to say, I am ecstatic. I can never have enough polka dots in my closet. No scratch that – I can never have enough polka dots in my life.

In my excitement to share all the beautiful polka dot goodies I found, I went a little overboard. Now I have so many goodies I want show you that I had to break them up into categories. I will not be posting a large image and description for everything because the post would be too enormous. So I have added these little javascript widgets that let you browse the goodies and decide if you want to look more into them. The only down side is that you can’t see these nifty widgets if you read the blog via our newsletter from your email. So I encourage you to visit the blog on a browser so you can see all the polka dots in all their glory.

I hope you share my love for dotted patterns. Let’s get down to business.
