Shark week note card
Shark gusseted reusable snack bag
Love Shark Week enough to drop a line to someone else who loves Shark Week? Do it on this themed Shark Week notecard by Etsy seller Dawn Correspondence (find her on Twitter and Facebook). It reads, "Don't bother me. I'm watching Shark Week" in black print on a blue background with splotches of red. Dun dun. Dun dun. Dun dun ...
Not quite Jaws scary but still perfectly Shark Week-themed, the shark gusseted reusable snack bag by Etsy seller A Stich of Mine (find her on Facebook) is the perfect solution for moms who don't pack their kids' snacks in plastic baggies. This shark snack bag is lined with water and stain-resistant nylon (BPA-free), has a double stitched Velcro closure and stands up, thanks to the gusseted bottom.
Shark bite dog collar
Take your Shark Week decorations (or shark-themed bathroom) to a whole new level with this shark soap. Etsy seller The Pig and the Peacock (find them on Twitter and Facebook) created three-ounce glycerin soaps with little sharks jumping out. Watch out for your fingers!
Even if your dog is more Nemo than Bruce (from Finding Nemo), Etsy seller Creature Collars (find her on Facebook) created a cute-but-tough shark bite dog collar for Fido. The collars are created from top-quality fabric and heavy-duty interfacing. Each collar from Create Collars is made to order, so your shark bite collar will be custom-created according to the size you need.
Shark bite terrycloth cover up
Shark wall vinyl
This year, the shark is on the beach, not in the ocean. Don't worry, though -- it's just the adorable shark bite terrycloth cover up by Etsy seller The Trendy Tot (find her on Facebook). And it will turn your cute little beach-goer (or poolside lounger) into a stylish and sweet shark. The cover up comes complete with a hood -- check out the super-cute shark lining -- and shark appliqué that's machine-stitched onto the front. In sizes 12 months all the way up to 5/6.
Bring Shark Week into your living room! Not just on your television, but on your wall -- in the form of a three-foot wall vinyl. This shark wall vinyl by Etsy seller Put 'em in the Wall (find them on Twitter and Facebook) adheres easily to any smooth surface -- walls, mirrors, windows and more. When you're ready to take the wall vinyl down, you can do so easily without damage to your walls.
