Holiday Gifts for 2019

The Louisville Zoo Gift Shop can take you and your loved ones on an incredible wildlife adventure this holiday season. Our educational toys and books can help you and your little ones discover together the world of animals and creatures living on our planet.

Join the herd this holiday with our precious elephant items. Our life-like elephant plushies are sure to spark imaginations and fun play times. Show your support for elephants and the Zoo’s animal ambassadors Fitz and Mikki with a tumbler, tote bag or a cozy hoodie to keep warm during chilly days as you trek the Zoo!


Fashion meets fair trade. You can help to create a better life for artisans and protect the environment, all while providing one-of-a-kind delights. Hand-made and eco-friendly items, created in small villages and benefiting the residents of these communities, are available in the Main Plaza Gift Shop. Our fair trade area also features a collection of handmade musical instruments.


Need something extra special? Give them a one-of-a-kind gift that helps people and wildlife! These ornaments are hand stitched in small villages and adorned with sequins and other shining details to make the best collectible souvenir ornaments around. Plus, a portion of the proceeds are donated to help an endangered species.


Make their days a little wilder with snow leopard swag including hats, tees and plushies — plus mugs from our conservation partner Snow Leopard Trust. They’re sure to add a “spot” of fun to their everyday routine!

The Main Plaza Gift Shop is open daily, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the Zoo is not required to shop.
