Posted by Jen Brueggen on Dec 11th 2019

The holiday season can feel chaotic, and trying to run all over town to find holiday gifts for everyone can be overwhelming. 

We want to help!

Scroll through our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide of items $30 and under to help you find some great gifts in the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Gift Shop. We are also open on Christmas day for that last minute gift!

For the Sloth Lovers: 


The Sloth Upside Down Shirt is our #1 selling item in The Gift Shop! 

Enjoy a hot beverage and "hang loose" with the Sloth mug, and don't forget the travel mug for all of your adventures. 

Inside The Gift Shop, you can find many sloth-related items for under $30, like ornaments, pens, plush toys, and so much more!

If you want to upscale the gift, include a Rainforest (Sloth) Encounter for $40 per person. Purchase online here: Rainforest (Sloth) Encounter

For the Office Co-Worker:

Make sitting at a desk more fun with a set of bright orange pencils, as well as a beautiful belly print of an American Alligator hatchling mousepad and paperweight

Enjoy waking up with a cup of coffee in a new mug. We have mugs available in our online store and more can be found inside the Gift Shop.

Be sure to make a trip out of the office to enjoy the outdoors with a Behind the Scenes tour, for $10 per person. 

Or get adventurous, and zip over the zoo at Crocodile Crossing Zipline Adventure!

For the Celebrity Fan:

Celebrities of all kinds have come through the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, like Tom Petty and Frank Robb & Chance the Chicago Alligator. 

You can wear the same shirt Tom Petty and Frank Robb have, the Alligator Farm "Tom Petty" shirt with rolled sleeves.

Relax with a fun coloring book about the Adventures of Frank Robb and Chance the Chicago Alligator. A portion of the proceeds from this book go to First Responders in Chicago, IL and to crocodilian conservation projects.

To take these gifts to the next level, get the best seat in the zoo to watch Maximo and Sydney's feeding show! For $20 per person, you get closer to the action to watch these Saltwater Crocodiles jump for food. 

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Gift Shop is open to guests, without needing to purchase a zoo ticket. It is right next to our Ticket Office, and open from 9am to 5pm.

Holiday hours are 10am to 4pm on Christmas day, so stop by if you need a last minute gift!
