Penguin Thermos

  • Drink Up!

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink

This Thermos may be adorable, but it’s also practical. It keeps beverages hot for up to 8 hours and cold for up to 12 hours. Also, even with his little penguin feet sticking out of the bottom, the Thermos fits most standard car cup holders.

User Experience

I've used this thermos and it's been a delightful experience. The adorable penguin design makes it a hit, not just with me, but also as a gift for others, especially for those who have a soft spot for penguins. Despite its small size, it serves its purpose well, keeping beverages warm for a decent amount of time. However, in my experience, it works best for water. The thermos also doubles as a cute storage container for small treats like chocolates, adding to its appeal.

Comfy Adult Penguin Onesie

  • Person or Penguin?

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

Help a penguin-obsessed friend wear their love on their sleeve…and head and feet and everywhere else with this penguin onesie. It works as cute pajamas, or a Halloween costume, or a Halloween costume and then pajamas. The only problem may be getting them to take it off to wash on occasion.

Personal Perspective

For someone seeking a fun costume, this penguin onesie could be a delightful choice. Its overall comfort and unique butt zipper feature have been quite a hit with my daughter. However, it does run small so you might want to size up, and the pockets are disappointingly tiny, barely fitting a standard smartphone. While the fabric is cozy and the design adorable, the quality is fairly mediocre, especially the stitching and the placement of the eyes and beak.

Cartoon Penguin Oven Mitts

  • Don’t Drop It Like It’s Hot

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink

Penguin gifts seem to fall into one of two categories – adorable cartoon versions of the funny tuxedoed birds and more realistic depictions of them. These oven mitts are super-cute cartoony versions of our favorite feathered friends.

Community Feedback

Great functionality and performance initially, but durability of these oven mitts was a letdown. In my first use, the outer material split after moving a hot oven rack, revealing the insulating layer underneath. Despite the effective heat resistance during a cookie baking session, the fear of further material splitting and potential finger exposure prevented me from using these mitts again.

Penguin String Lights

  • Trip The Light Fantastic

  • $$$$$
  • Decor

What’s better than one penguin? A whole string of them! If you have friends who are penguin lovers, they’ll go bonkers over these penguin string lights where each little guy has his wings spread. Penguins may not be able to fly, but they’ll look like it when they’re strung up in the yard.

First-Hand Impression

In my experience, these narwhal lights exude an adorable charm and emit a brightness that is pleasing to the eyes. The size of the narwhals was smaller than anticipated and the wire, being exceptionally slender, demands careful handling when arranging them. I found the lack of a timer to be a minor inconvenience, and the need for a clear AA battery pack necessitates a bit of creativity in concealment. When lit up, the narwhal design is not as discernible as I would have preferred, but the thin, flexible wire allows for a variety of display options. The pricing felt a tad steep for a single strand, but the joy these lights brought to my narwhal-enthusiast daughter made them worthwhile. Despite these minor drawbacks, the overall visual appeal and the delight they bring to children, makes these lights a captivating addition to any room.

Sterling Silver Penguin Family Necklace

  • Pretty Penguins

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Sentimental

This necklace features three cutout penguins from biggest to smallest. It would be an especially sweet present for a new mom or as a Mother’s Day present to a mom from her kids. This penguin accessory comes in gold, rhodium, or rose gold plated silver.

User Experience

After receiving this penguin necklace, I was pleasantly surprised by its adorable design and well-crafted figures. Despite the thin and somewhat fragile chain, it shines brilliantly and doesn't compromise the overall aesthetic appeal. I appreciate the attention to detail, although the hollow finish on the back could have been smoother for a more refined look.

Nope Penguin T-Shirt

  • Lazy Penguin

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

If you’re looking for penguin gifts for a friend or family member who likes to lounge, this t-shirt proudly announces that they’re resting. It features a ridiculously cute cartoon penguin napping and simply says “Nope” on the front. We all need days like that.

Personal Perspective

Love how this shirt has been a hit with everyone! The material is of excellent quality with a fantastic print that's held up well. I particularly adore the cute penguin design, which was a big win for a friend of mine who is a penguin enthusiast. It's not just visually appealing but also supremely comfortable to wear. However, do be mindful that these shirts tend to run a bit small, so you might want to consider sizing up.

Wine Bottle Opener

  • Wine Time

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty, Practical

Introduce some quirky fun into cocktail hour with this penguin themed corkscrew. Twist as his wings go up, then push down on those wings to remove the cork. This would make a fun housewarming gift, or a great wedding present paired with a good bottle of wine.

Community Feedback

As an avid wine enthusiast and animal lover, I found this wine opener to be quite charming. Its black matte texture with silver handles gives it an appealing aesthetic, though using it to open bottles can be challenging at times due to the handle's design. Uniquely, the tail acts as a foil cutter, albeit requiring a bit of pressure to cut through the foil effectively. The corkscrew mechanism may take some getting used to, but once adjusted, it works quite efficiently. Even when not in use, this wine opener serves as a fun, decorative piece. Despite a few minor usability issues, its unique design and solid construction make it a delightful addition to any wine accessory collection.

Glass Coffee Mug

  • Penguin Power

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty

This mug features realistic-looking penguins who, thanks to the clear glass, appear to be swimming in the coffee or other beverage inside the mug. It’s microwave safe and would be cool to pair with a bag of coffee or special tea blend.

First-Hand Impression

This lightweight mug, adorned with a unique iceberg design, fits comfortably in my hands and has an intriguing acrylic-textured handle that seemingly protects against heat. Despite its delicate appearance and small, somewhat awkward handle, it has survived regular use and even the microwave, proving it's not just a beautiful piece but also unexpectedly sturdy.

Fleece Throw Blanket

  • Snug As A Bug

  • $$$$$
  • Decor, Comfort

Since your penguin-loving friend doesn’t have a warm layer of feathers like an actual penguin (we assume), give them this warm layer instead! This fleece blanket is soft and warm…and covered in penguins. Heaven.

User Experience

This penguin-themed blanket is a hit in our household thanks to its plush, silky texture and adorable design. While it's more lightweight and compact than expected, it's perfect for cozying up on the couch or bringing along on travels. The color leans more towards dark blue and purple rather than the gray shown online, but this didn't dampen our enthusiasm for it. Just remember to keep its softness intact by avoiding the dryer and hanging it to dry instead.

Penguin Snow Globe

  • Penguins On Ice

  • $$$$$
  • Decor

Snow globes are an especially fun decoration at Christmas and also make great keepsakes to bring out each year. This one has two penguins inside the water globe in the Arctic. Two more penguins decorate the outside of the globe. The snow globe also plays “Wonderful World,” so it’s not Christmas-specific and could be up all winter long.

Personal Perspective

I'm quite pleased with this musical snow globe that I purchased for my son's birthday. This product, with its adorable penguin motif, struck a chord with him as he has a deep fondness for these flightless birds. Of note, the music emanating from the globe is soothing and helps him unwind, although the tune doesn't play in its entirety and is a tad fast. Despite a minor mishap where the globe's glass shattered, the music box remained functional and continues to be used during my son's bedtime routine. Additionally, the quality of this product is commendable, surviving the trials of a young child. In the end, it's not just a decorative piece but also a cherished possession.

Penguin Stress Relief Balls

  • Let It All Out

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty

Give these stress balls to someone with a high-pressure job, school, or other responsibilities. Squeezing the penguins will help them to get out their stress and aggression…if they can bring themselves to do it. Then again, these toys are so cute they may not have the heart to squeeze them. These are also great for kids who just love to squish things.

Community Feedback

For anyone seeking a durable, sensory toy, these unicorn squishies have been a hit with children as young as three and as old as eight. These soft, colorful, and squishy toys have proven to be quite sturdy, surviving even the vigorous play of a first grader for over a month. However, be aware they can get a bit sticky, picking up dirt easily and requiring frequent washing, and the decorative elements like painted eyes may peel off with time, but these minor flaws don't seem to diminish the children's love for them.

Penguin Steering Wheel Cover

  • Protected By Penguins

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty

A steering wheel cover is one of the more unique penguin gift ideas out there! This adorable cover adorned in penguins should fit most car steering wheels. It also saves the wheel from sun damage and makes it easier to drive on a hot day.

First-Hand Impression

This steering wheel cover is both visually appealing and functional, although it occasionally slips during turns. Its comfortable texture makes handling my car during the summer heat a more pleasant experience, despite the installation process requiring a bit of effort. The red hue, which might disappoint those expecting a vibrant tone, leans more towards a subdued, duller shade. However, motorists with larger steering wheels might find the fit awkward and constantly slipping, which could potentially interfere with their driving comfort.

Penguin 16-Inch Backpack

  • Penguin Prep School

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Practical

Kids will love this penguin backpack for school, but plenty of adults will love the pack, too! It’s large enough to fit certain laptops and has plenty of room for pens, books, gym clothes, or many other everyday items.

User Experience

Definitely, this backpack has been a delightful surprise, with its high-quality material and adorable penguin design enduring weeks of daily use by my 3rd grader without any signs of wear. Despite its white color which can show dirt easily, it's proven to be easy to clean and surprisingly water-repellant, keeping its contents safe even during unexpected rain showers.

Happy Feet/ Happy Feet 2/ March Of the Penguins Box Set

  • Triple Feature

  • $$$$$
  • Entertainment

These three movies all feature penguins, both real and imaginary. Penguin lovers can learn more about these amazing creatures by watching the March of the Penguins documentary. Then they can unwind with Robin Williams, Elijah Wood, and the others who voiced the hilarious Happy Feet and its sequel.

Personal Perspective

This triple feature set of Happy Feet and March of The Penguins has brought immense joy to my household. The realistic animation in Happy Feet 1 and 2 is remarkable, it's clear the animators have put in hours of work studying real-life penguins to capture their movements so accurately. Watching the documentary, March Of The Penguins, narrated by Morgan Freeman was a wonderful insight into the life of penguins. From entertaining my grandkids to calming down an elderly lady I care for, these DVDs have been a source of happiness and amazement for all, making them a valuable addition to my DVD library.

I'm Not Short I'm Penguin Size Sweatshirt

  • For The Vertically Challenged

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

Help your diminutive friend be proud of their size by reminding everyone that some of the best things – like penguins and certain people – come in small packages. This black sweatshirt says, “I’m Not Short, I’m Penguin Size” and features a cartoon of a dancing penguin.

Community Feedback

For someone who appreciates fun attire, this sweatshirt was quite a treat. Initially, it captivated me with its adorable design and plush texture, to the point where I contemplated keeping it for myself! My daughter, an avid penguin enthusiast, also fell in love with it at first sight. However, this sweatshirt wasn't all it was cracked up to be. After a few laundering cycles, the once vibrant design and lettering began to fade and peel away. While the concept was delightful, the sweatshirt failed to maintain its charm, disappointing in its durability.

Penguin Kitchen Timer

  • PST: Penguin Standard Time

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty, Practical

Kitchen timers are fun little gadgets that are a great way to add a little quirkiness to kitchen decor without going over the top. This penguin timer goes up to 60 minutes – simply turn the top of the penguin and his head will rotate back to the start position as he counts down the minutes.

First-Hand Impression

I'm quite fond of this timer despite its quirks. The penguin design is delightful, though setting the time can be a bit tricky as you have to turn it first and then adjust to the desired time. While it generally works well and has a loud ring, it has been off by a few minutes on occasion and has even gotten stuck a few times, requiring a slight jiggle to restart it.

Fleece Penguin Pajama Pants

  • Penguin Pajama Party

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

Pajamas are such a fun gift because you can get a pair for your friend or family member and then get matching pairs for several other people! Match your bestie, get family PJ pants for you and the kids, or get some for an entire extended family. These fleece pants will keep everyone warm and comfy and come in sizes for the whole family.

User Experience

I'm quite fond of these pajamas and their cozy, soft fleece material. They feature a high waist design, which I personally prefer, providing a comfortable fit for my curvy physique. The sizing appears to be true, with a bit of extra room in the larger sizes for added comfort. However, though well-made and resilient in the wash, they do lack pockets, which I found to be a slight drawback. The patterns, including a snowflake design, are vibrant and don't fade over time. I also noticed that the pants tend to run a bit long, requiring a cuff or two for a perfect fit.

Penguin Mom & Chick Stuffed Animals

  • All In The Family

  • $$$$$
  • Comfort, Sentimental, Novelty

This plush set of a mom and her penguin chick would be a thoughtful present for a penguin-loving mom at a baby shower. It would also make a great gift for a teen, or a young adult who loves these birds and is moving away from home.

Personal Perspective

I found these penguins to be incredibly soft and well-crafted, bringing a sense of absolute cuteness overload. My own experience mirrors that of other users, with my children carrying them around everywhere, much like their favorite movie characters. However, one slight downside was that the baby and mom penguin were sewn together, which prompted some minor modifications. Despite this, the penguins made a delightful addition to our Christmas decorations, fitting perfectly on our staircase.

Penguin Gummies With Fruit Juice

  • Snack Attack

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink

If you’re making up a care basket or package for a college student or simply want to treat a friend, these penguin gummies are flavored with fruit juice. They’re also great for snacks or to have at a penguin-themed party!

Community Feedback

I've had a delightful experience with these penguin gummies. They are not only adorable but also quite tasty, reminding me a lot of peach rings. Despite claims to the contrary, they are not sour, but this doesn't detract from their deliciousness. The size is also perfect - small enough for a satisfying bite without having to wrestle with half a gummy. One of the best features is that they emit a delightful aroma that rivals the taste itself. All in all, these penguin gummies have been a hit with my family, especially my daughter who was thrilled to receive them.

Penguins Can't Fly Shirt

  • Penguin Delusions

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort, Novelty

This shirt reads, “Penguins Can’t Fly. I Can’t Fly. Therefore, I Am A Penguin.” Sure, makes sense to us. The shirt also features an adorable cartoon drawing of a penguin who appears to be trying – and failing – to fly.

First-Hand Impression

After purchasing this shirt for my son, I can confidently say that the fabric quality is top-notch. It's made of soft yet sturdy cotton, perfect for a good night's sleep or daily wear. The silkscreen design, featuring a cute penguin, has remained intact even after two months of use, adding to its charm. Although it's a crew neck, buying it two sizes larger solved any discomfort issue. It's not just me, even my son, a penguin enthusiast, adores this shirt and has added it to his favorites.

Stainless Steel Penguin Cocktail Shaker

  • Mixing Penguin Potions

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty

This penguin cocktail shaker is a sophisticated way to display a love of penguins (he is wearing a tuxedo, after all). The stainless steel shaker has an 18-oz capacity, so it can be used to make drinks for a group of people at a dinner party or just a couple at home in the evening. It was inspired by the art-deco style of the 1920s and 30s.

User Experience

I recently started using this HIC Penguin Cocktail Shaker and it's been a delightful addition to my kitchen. I've found it to be a reliable tool for making chilled beverages, with no leaks or cracks even when shaking vigorously or pouring hot coffee over ice. The 18/8 stainless steel construction ensures durability while the penguin design adds a fun element to the process. Although the material isn't the highest quality, it's more than sufficient for occasional use and definitely serves as an eye-catching statement piece.

Penguin Wallet

  • Protect Your Pennies

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Practical, Novelty

This penguin wallet features a mom and a baby snuggling together, with a striped pattern in the background. It’s large enough to fit several credit cards, money, and a driver’s license. Plus, it has a loop so it can be used as a wristlet.

Personal Perspective

Best in terms of design and quality, this wallet has impressed me with its vegan-friendly material and abundance of slots for cards, cash, and a zippered compartment for loose change. The layered colors and designs, especially the pig and butterfly styles, are super adorable and the fact that some proceeds go to an environmental organization makes me love these wallets even more.

Crystal Penguin Earrings

  • Precious Penguins

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Sentimental

These earrings feature penguins, with silver and black crystals outlining the penguin bodies on each ear for a special, sparkly design. While they are stud earrings, they’re slightly larger than many studs, so they’re striking and sure to be noticed!

Community Feedback

These penguin earrings are both adorable and elegant in their small size, which makes them perfect for younger wearers or those who prefer understated jewelry. I found them to be of excellent quality, looking particularly endearing on my ears, and I've received numerous compliments when wearing them at the zoo where I volunteer. They also come in a lovely box, eliminating the need for additional gift wrapping, making them an ideal present for anyone fond of penguins.

Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems

  • Penguin Poetry

  • $$$$$
  • Entertainment

Although this is a kids’ book, adults will find themselves learning a whole lot about penguins from the funny, clever poems! From how moms travel for ages to feed their new babies to how dads take care of their little chicks to how the whole family is reunited in the end, everyone will come away from this book with a little more penguin knowledge and admiration for those hardy little guys.

First-Hand Impression

I absolutely adore this book for its unique blend of humor, education, and delightful illustrations. Reading poems about penguins and seeing their world through vivid pictures truly captivated my daughter, sparking her interest in both poetry and wildlife. Despite having to purchase multiple copies over the years, each reading still brings a warm smile to our faces and has become a cherished family favorite.

Fleece Penguin Slippers

  • Happy Feet

  • $$$$$
  • Comfort

These scuffer slippers are great to wear around the house and for short trips outside. They’re anti-slip, lightweight, and lined with fleece for warm feet. Each slipper features a penguin on the front, with wings that stretch up from the slippers. They’re unisex and come in both kid and adult sizes.

User Experience

I fell head over heels for these penguin slippers, their charm and warmth is undeniable. However, while they're perfect for my son who adores penguins, I found the sizing to be slightly off - they were either too big or too snug. Despite this, they're cute and comfy, but ensure you double-check the size before making a purchase.

Extra Large Penguin Cookie Cutter

  • Cute Cookies

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink

Your baking friend will love this penguin cookie cutter to make sweet treats! It has the simple but distinctive outline of a penguin with its wings spread, so it will produce cookies that aren’t too fussy or hard to make. Then, adults and kids alike can get as creative as they want to with decorating them!

Personal Perspective

Great for penguin lovers, this cookie cutter created adorable and unforgettable treats at my festive gatherings. Despite some reviews suggesting it wasn't sturdy enough, I found it to be durable and able to cut through my whole wheat gingerbread dough with ease. While I initially bought it for the holiday season, my toddler's fascination with penguins makes this a fun baking tool we'll be using year-round.

Penguin Hat, Scarf & Mittens Combo

  • Warm Up!

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

This fuzzy snow hat with attached mittens keeps wearers warm from their head to the tips of their fingers! The hat features a penguin face, with a stuffed orange beak sticking out of the front. It’s an adorable way to stay warm during those cold winter months!

Community Feedback

Got this hat in black and was initially taken aback by the pointed ears - it looked more like a cat than the bear I was expecting. With a quick fold though, I transformed the ears and it looked perfect! The paws, stitched on rather than the cheap vinyl you often see, added a charming touch. One minor gripe I had was that the mittens were a tad small for my arms, and the fur didn't cover my arms when I used them, but overall, this hat is a warm, fun addition to my wardrobe that's always a head turner.

Cartoon Penguin Coin Purse

  • Cash Carrier

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Novelty

This little coin purse is decorated with several small penguins all over the sides. It has a clasp lock to keep coins safe and the PU leather outside wipes clean easily. It’s a great little gift for keeping spare change, lipstick, or other small items in.


Cute Swimming Penguin iPhone Case

  • Phone Home

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Novelty, Practical

Help your penguin-obsessed friend protect their phone while at the same time proclaiming their love for penguins! This phone case shows penguins swimming, leaping, and frolicking. It fits the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro 6.1 inch phones and is a great layer of protection along with being very cute.

User Experience

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this iPhone cover, especially given its reasonable price. It fits my daughter's iPhone 12 like a glove and the raised edges provide an extra layer of protection in case of accidental drops. The design is vibrant and aligns perfectly with the Apple logo, giving the illusion of a hanging string - a nice touch of whimsy. It does scratch easily over time, but I don't mind ordering another when it becomes too worn, considering its affordability and the bonus screen protector included.

Baby Penguin Wall Art

  • Penguin Pictures

  • $$$$$
  • Decor

This wall art features a baby penguin in ink, staring straight out of the frame. It would make a great baby shower gift for a mom who loves penguins and would be very sweet in a nursery! You can choose to give the picture framed or unframed, and as an art print or on canvas.


Origami Penguin Necklace

  • Playful Penguins

  • $$$$$
  • Sentimental, Fashion

These penguins may be made of sterling silver, but they bring to mind paper penguins made by using origami. They’re handmade in New York and are a sophisticated way to show an affinity for these fine feathered friends.


Emperor Penguin Lunchbox

No products found.

Check Price
  • Let’s Do Lunch

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty, Practical

The emperor penguins adorning this lunchbox are realistic-looking, so although it’s labeled as a kids’ lunchbox, adults could easily use it as well. The picture on the side shows emperor penguins swimming through water, and the lunchbox has a pocket for a water bottle, along with an inner pocket for organizing.


Waterproof Penguin Apron

  • Cook In Style

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Fashion, Practical

If your penguin-loving pal also happens to be the family chef or just likes to cook, they’ll appreciate this apron to keep their clothes clean while they work. It’s made of waterproof cloth and is lightweight, so it won’t bother them to wear. It also has two front pockets for storing things while cooking.


Fuzzy Penguin Slipper Socks

  • No Cold Feet

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Comfort

You don’t have to be a penguin-lover to love these soft, fuzzy socks! However, people who do appreciate penguins will love the socks even more…the toe of each sock looks like a penguin face, and the rest of the sock is decorated with snowflakes. They’re perfect for chilly winter nights!

Personal Perspective

If you've ever experienced the annoyance of slipper socks sliding off, these slipper socks are a refreshing change. Not only do they stay put, but they also have non-slip grippers on the bottom, which adds a level of safety when moving around. The combination of warmth, comfort, and adorable designs make these socks a hit, but do consider getting a size up as they run small.

I Just Freaking Love Penguins Tumbler

  • Don’t Judge Me

  • $$$$$
  • Food & Drink, Novelty

This tumbler, which comes with a convenient lid to prevent spills, announces, “I just freaking love penguins. Ok?” The picture of the one small cartoon penguin with his wings outstretched is totally adorable also. It holds 12 ounces of wine, coffee, or any other beverage and is insulated to keep drinks hot or cold.

Community Feedback

Love the design on this tumbler, it's adorable and perfect for any penguin fanatics out there! It's not the light blue as shown in the picture, it's white, but that doesn't detract from its overall quality and appeal. It keeps my drinks cold all day long, a feature I appreciate, and seems to be just as durable as more well-known brands, although I've yet to try out the straws.

Penguin Color-Changing Night Light

  • Light Up The Night

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Decor, Novelty

This penguin nightlight is great for kids! It has a smart touch sensor and remote control that can turn the light on or off and change the light’s colors. There are also various modes of light, including fade, strobe, flash, and smooth.

First-Hand Impression

Excellent product with charm and practicality, this night light has been a beacon of comfort for both my recovering loved one and my young child, with its soft material and delightful color-changing feature. However, its remote functionality can be somewhat unreliable after periods of inactivity, and the charging port's awkward positioning complicates the recharging process, these small issues aside, the appeal and usefulness of this night light remain undiminished.

Penguin Pencil Holder with Phone Stand

  • Penguin Pencil Pushing

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Novelty

Corral pencils and also have a place to display a phone with this stand. The front features a penguin looking upward, and on his back is the hole for a handful of pencils. His tail curves up to form a convenient phone stand.

User Experience

This penguin-themed holder sparks joy with its adorable design and functional purpose. Despite its smaller than expected size, it adequately holds a modest amount of 4-6 pens or pencils and even secures my phone with patience. Made from resilient plastic and maintaining a realistic penguin depiction, this holder adds a charming touch to any desk setup and is appreciated by those who love penguins.

  • Chug-A-Lug

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Food & Drink

It’s important to stay hydrated, and this water bottle cheerfully reminds drinkers to do just that. The side of the bottle says, “Chill out and drink your water” with a friendly cute penguin. The time markings on the bottle are a great way to keep track of how much water your penguin fan has gone through by certain times of the day.


Penguin Paper Clips

  • Penguin Paper Prepping

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Novelty

These purple penguin-shaped paper clips are not only adorable, they’re very practical! Your penguin lover can use them to organize papers or as bookmarks. The shapes are distinctly penguin-looking and can be clipped on things by slipping the wing on the outside of the paper.

Community Feedback

If you're in search of a touch of whimsy for your office, these penguin-shaped paper clips surely do not disappoint. Not only are they charming in their unique design and vibrant purple color, but they also hold up to 10 sheets of paper effortlessly, making them as practical as they are delightful. I find them to be a fun addition to my desk and they coordinate well with all my other purple accessories. Despite being slightly pricier than your average paper clip, their quality and distinctive style make them worth every penny.

Penguin Ice Tray

  • Chilly Penguins

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Food & Drink

Penguins are already used to the cold, so hanging out in a freezer for a while shouldn’t phase these guys at all! The ice cube tray shows the distinctive beaks and round penguin bellies, so it’s easy to identify the little creatures even though they’re made of ice.

This would be a great present to combine with the penguin cocktail shaker we shared above!

First-Hand Impression

I'm really enjoying these silicone molds. They're perfect for my soap embeds, especially the mermaid tails and the penguins, which come out looking adorable. Initially, I noticed a chemical taste when I used it to make ice cubes, but a thorough cleaning seemed to solve that issue. These molds are considerably thick which is great for durability, and it's easy to remove the final product without any breakage. My toddler also loves the duck molds, we've had fun making ice cubes and baking crayons with it. However, do note that the molds are smaller than standard ice cube trays, so keep that in mind.

Cute Penguin Toiletry Bag

  • Cosmetic Upgrade

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion, Novelty

This toiletry bag with maroon red background unzips to show four compartments where shower gel, shampoo, a toothbrush, and other toiletry items can be stored. It’s a great way to stay organized on the go!

User Experience

This toiletry case delivers on roominess, making it a breeze to pack all my essentials, and the penguin pattern is a delightful touch. However, there's a slight snag, literally, as the hanger hook tends to pop out and catch on other items in my suitcase.

Segmented Penguin Wind Chime

  • Sweet Cool Music

  • $$$$$
  • Decor

A penguin wind chime like this one is one of those unique penguin gift ideas that most people won’t consider, but which will be well-loved. This wind chime features a segmented penguin – each of the different segments of his body move in the wind, making the chimes ring.

Personal Perspective

This brass penguin sculpture, doubling as yard art, is certainly a delight for the eyes, but falls short of its wind chime function. It's wonderfully heavy and detailed, yet it requires quite a strong gust to produce a deep, clanking sound, which might not meet everyone's wind chime expectations.

Penguin Flash Drive

  • No Flashing

  • $$$$$
  • Practical, Novelty

Just about everyone can use another flash drive. They won’t be likely to lose this one, though! It comes in the shape of a penguin – simply remove his head (sorry), and the drive can be inserted into a laptop to be used. This drive also comes with a chain, so it can be linked to a keychain, or even worn as a necklace when it’s not being used.

This USB stick is not only functional but irresistibly cute with its penguin design. I've found it to be a conversation starter, with others often cooing over its charm whenever I use it. While the silicone material is smooth and soft, one must be gentle with the chain, as tugging too hard might lead to damage. Despite its minor flaw, it's a delightful little device that I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again.
