27 best gifts for shrimp lovers 2022

    Imagine this: a beautiful seaside town, mist rolling into the bay. You take a sip of an iced martini and your eyes are filled with delight as the server puts on an amazing cocktail of shrimp. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Slowly, dip the jumbo shrimp into a tangy cocktail sauce as you think to yourself, “There is a god, and the shrimp must love it.” If you can relate, then, boy, are you ready to get a treat. We call all cuts of meat obsessed with crustaceans and those who claim to be “shrimp teeth” – this one is for you.

    Come on, all come to BIG SHRIMP RODEO. There’s a shrimp-themed item for absolutely every sea bug lover, and if you know a shrimp lover, you know it’s not a hobby, but a lifestyle. Grab some Old Bay and discover the vast ocean-like world of shrimp-inspired jewelry, cocktails, home décor, nail polish and more shrimp products. So go ahead, let the shrimp flag fly, and repeat after me: “I love prawns, I don’t care who knows!” Just a little lemon, and we’re on a magical adventure with shrimp.

    For candle lovers who love shrimp

    Shrimp tend to take a back seat to Big Daddy lobsters when we talk about fancy seafood, but we like to be different, crunchy, and cooler than usual. What better way to express your love for oysters than with some delicious shrimp-style decor? Guests simply won’t be able to ignore an exquisitely crafted cocktail-style shrimp on ice candle, or the exquisitely handcrafted piece of art the Lemon-Shrimp Candle by Brooklyn-based artist and curator Janie Korn.
