Whether you’re buying for an animal lover, a choosy child, or “the person who has everything,” our zoo gifts will take the guesswork out of your holiday shopping . . . and please everyone on your list!
Treat them to a Tortoise Meet & Feed
If you’re familiar with the zoo, you’re most likely familiar with Al and Henry, Reptiland’s oldest—and most beloved—residents. These “gentle giants” are special creatures, and we offer guests the opportunity to get to know them with Meet and Feed the Gentle Giants! Venture into their habitat, feed them a healthy snack, and take home a photo commemorating the whole experience! Zoogoers of all ages rave about it, and we know whoever you gift it to will as well!
Make Someone a Zoo Parent
Congratulations, it’s a . . . zoo animal!
Show loved ones you care by adopting an animal in their name. Our Adopt-an-Animal program makes a great gift for individuals AND families. Choose from 10 different animals with packages starting at just $30. And if you’re short on time, this gift can be shipped directly to the recipient with a personal message from you!
Buy Fair Trade
Many items in the Natural Selections Gift Shop are fair trade, and each purchase supports merchants, artisans, farmers, and more in developing countries. Learn more about fair trade.
On top of that, you won’t find these items anywhere else in the area! Our fair trade merchandise ranges from recycled paper ornaments to fine jewelry and spans all price points. Shop fair trade and enjoy unique finds and quality products at reasonable prices—all while supporting communities across the globe.
BONUS: Save 20% on your entire gift shop purchase through December 31!
Let the Recipient Choose
Give your recipient the gift of FUN with a Reptiland gift card! It never expires, and the recipient has the power to choose how it’s spent. Here are a few ideas:
- Zoo Membership – the gift that keeps on giving . . . the whole year
- Special events – throughout the year we host several events including Reading with Reptiles, Birds of Prey Day, Dino Days, and Flashlight Safari
- Behind-the-Scenes tour – discover the inner-workings of an AZA accredited zoo
- Birthday party – join our party animals for a WILD birthday celebration
- Gift shop merchandise – from silly souvenirs to African artifacts and everything in between
- Tortoise feeding and/or Adopt-an-Animal (described above)
- or just a fun day at the zoo filled with all of our exhibits and live shows!
Regardless of how they are redeemed, Reptiland gift cards are always money well spent! To purchase, stop in or call us at 570-538-1869—we’re happy to mail the gift card to you or the recipient at no extra charge! (We’ll even email a special print-out that can be given to the recipient if you’re extra short on time.)
Whatever your holiday gifting needs, we’re here to help. Stop in seven days a week from 10am to 5pm to shop in our gift shop, pick up some zoo gifts, or get assistance from our friendly staff!
Have a happy holiday season, and we hope to see you soon!
