CuriOdyssey Gift Guide

Hello from the CuriOdyssey Gift Shop! This holiday season, please consider us for your local holiday shopping list needs! CuriOdyssey is a 501c3 non-profit organization, with all store purchases going to support/care for CuriOdyssey and the animals that call us home. 🐾

Happy Holidays, everyone!

🎁 Wildlife Wishlist

Ever wanted to give our ferrets a new toy to play with, or keep Caro the bobcat cozy? Our Wildlife team has a wish list of items they’d love to have to make our critters comfy!

🎁 Otter Feeding Experience

Gunner needs his lunch, and you can help! Buy a private feeding for yourself or a loved one for some personal time with everyone’s favorite otter friend!

🎁 Sponsor an Animal

When you sponsor your favorite animal at whatever level you choose, there are all sorts of benefits! Not only have you supported an amazing CuriOdyssey critter, but you’ll get a plushie, keeper notes, and can even bundle it with a membership!

🎁 CuriOdyssey Membership

Speaking of, the best way to support CuriOdyssey is to visit whenever you want! Snag a membership at your chosen level to get access to members-only hours, special events, program discounts, and more!

🎁 IlluminOdyssey Lanterns

The best way to remember IlluminOdyssey this winter is to take a piece home with you! We sell our amazing carry lanterns in the gift shop (they’re made right in-house by our amazing exhibits team), and they make amazing presents for kids!

🎁 Camp and Workshop Spots

Experiences make the best gifts, and we’ve got plenty of them in store this winter and beyond! Buy a kid in your life a winter workshop, or even a whole week of Winter Camp for a science-filled holiday break.

🎁 Birthday Party Packages

Who doesn’t want to have their birthday at CuriOdyssey? Surprise your favorite kiddo by renting our space for their big day.

🎁 Hakuna Matata Vibes

Save the world with your holiday cards! Hakuna Matata Vibes has amazing conservation-based stationary featuring our animals by a local Bay Area Artist, helping you shop local, support small, eco-friendly businesses, and support CuriOdyssey when you buy them in our gift shop!

🎁 Busy Playbox

Shop truly local with Busy Playbox! These incredible artisan sensory toys are also sold in our shop and are made by a member of CuriOdyssey!
