Great gift ideas for animal lovers this Christmas
Published: Dec 1, 2017Searching for that unique gift for your friend or loved one? Well, look no further! I’ve compiled our top 5 gift ideas that will make the perfect prezzie for your nearest and dearest this Christmas.
Number one - Lemur experience
First up, is the chance to hand feed and meet ring-tailed lemurs! Sounds amazing, right? It really is! This fab experience is the perfect present for a lover of animals. It allows you to meet the lemurs while they bounce and climb around you. You can purchase a voucher via the website which can be redeemed at any time by giving us a call and booking a timeslot. The voucher gives two people the chance to walk on to Lemur Island and meet and feed the lemurs. It also entities both participants entry to the Zoo, so you can wander around and see all the other animals. If lemurs aren’t really your thing we also do a penguin and macaque experience.
Number two - adopt an animal
This one is great for those with a favourite animal. You can adopt anything from a lion to a sloth. This awesome gift means that you can adopt someone’s favourite animal for a whole year! The money will contribute towards the vital conservation work that we do here at Newquay Zoo. Not only that but as part of the package the recipient will receive entry to the Zoo to see their adopted animal and they’ll even get a fluffy toy too!
Number three - Keeper for a day
Its got to be the ultimate gift for those 'wannabe' zookeepers. This gift gives you the chance to become a zookeeper for the day. The recipient will spend the day with the keepers and will get to find out exactly what it’s like to look after some of the awesome rare and endangered species that we keep here. They will spend some time in each section and will take part in tasks such as feeding the animals and mucking them out! The keeper for a day experience is for ages 15 and over and comes with entry to the Zoo. Younger people needn’t miss out, as we also run a Junior Keeper experience for ages 8 to 14 who will have just as much fun.
Number four - Annual Pass
The perfect gift for people who love zoos. Get them an annual pass and they will be able to visit Newquay Zoo AND our sister zoos Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts as many times as they like for a whole year. They can even get discounts in our food and retail outlets when they are visiting. We offer individual or family passes. If those suggestions don’t quite cut it, then this one certainly will!
Number five - give the animals a gift
The ultimate gift for someone who already has everything. You can purchase them a gift for one of our animals. Check out our Amazon Wishlist to find out exactly what our animals want for Christmas and purchase something for your recipient’s favourite animal. Not only will your recipient love it, but so will the animal. For example, buy a Boomer ball for our lion, Boss, and he’ll have hours of entertainment that will also enrich his health and wellbeing. Then, when your friend comes to visit, they might even get the chance to see their item being used by one of our animals.
