Holiday Gifts With Love From Corpus Christi Attractions
Gather some of that Corpus Christi spirit and bring it home for the holidays with one-of-a-kind South Texas gifts you can’t get anywhere else.
Texas State Aquarium
Take to heart the mission of the Texas State Aquarium – conservation, preservation and appreciation for the Gulf of Mexico – and wrap it up as a gift.
The gift shop features lovely home goods, including pillows, soaps, coasters, candles and even holiday stockings.
Where else can you find stuffed animal octopii, sea turtles, stingrays, shark, whales, jellyfish, otters… even sloth? Or how about some sassy socks to warm the tootsies? Your sea-savvy kid or future marine biologist will love these cuddly denizens of the deep. Some adults would be thrilled to receive these, too!
Every dollar you spend supports education and conservation programs.
- Schedule a 2018 Family Overnight trip.
- Add an Exclusive Encounter with birds, fish and even dolphins.
U.S.S. Lexington CV-16 Aircraft Carrier Museum
The U.S.S. Lexington offers unusual tokens for your veteran, navy or service brat or WWII history buff. Or maybe someone who just loves uniforms or big ships?
Scale models and toy ship replicas, custom dog tags, aviator shades, sailor caps, reprints of original WWII era newspapers make great gifts to help kids explore history though play.
The gift shop is brimming with ball caps and T-shirts featuring the U.S.S. Lexington. Don’t forget the stocking stuffers: Fridge magnets, pencils, challenge coins and everything Rosie the Riveter (she’s a shop fave)!
Give the gift of history and preservation:
- Book an exciting Overnight Campout for your kids or group.
- Donate military items to the Curatorial Program to become part of history.
Art Museum of South Texas
Our stately Art Museum of South Texas is a work of art in and of itself.
Elegant books, from gorgeous coffee table editions to biographies of the brilliant architects behind the museum’s design take up an entire wall. Your art lover will go nuts for the original art, affordable prints, and the traditional Mexican Tree of Life and Day of the Dead-inspired pottery by the Castillo family.
Don we now our gay apparel! Wearable art like the 80s-inspired geometric bangles by artist India de Landa or the scarves and neckties featuring designs straight from the works of Texas legend Dorothy Hood are as unique as the people on your list.
Support the arts in total immersion:
Give the unexpected! Grab some souvenirs at the beloved Selena Museum.
Pick up goodies available nowhere else: collectable cards, pencils, koozies and posters. Check out the official line of T-shirts and our favorite, the baby onesie.
Does your Selena fan have everything? The gift shop carries music to make any collection complete or to launch the adoration of a new fan.
So book your trip to Corpus Christi to enjoy the cool winter season and to shop and add some amazing coastal exclusives to your gift list!
