1. Photographic Art of Anna Maria Island

It’s true: you can never really capture the energy of a vacation destination in a photograph. This doesn’t stop many of us from trying! The shop features work from at least 50 artists, many in the local area. The shop’s photographic work is some of its most immediately satisfying. Snag a picture of Bridge St or the famous AMI sunset. Pictures of local (and often endangered) wildlife are often available. The work changes often, so you may never know what to expect.

These photographs are some of the best beach souvenirs in all of the Anna Maria gift shops.

2. Coconut Musical Instrument

This fun and funky musical instrument are one of the shop’s best-selling items. It is a perfect example of the kind of creativity found on Anna Maria Island. The instrument harkens back to the island’s roots. Made from real coconut, this handy instrument is similar to a thumb piano. Multiple spoon-like prongs can be plucked to make some dazzling and eccentric sounds. It is a very clever contraption and a great gift for kids to pluck and play away with.

3. Glass Chimes

The glowing glass chimes of the shop are a delight. You are almost certain to see them sparkling in the shop windows when you walk on up to the deck. They can hang freely or be set up as a desk stand item. The glass turtles are incredibly popular and just a wonderful addition to your home. The glass is handcrafted, capturing colors and strands inside to make the shell glow.

As far as hanging art and décor goes, you have many options. You can go for one of the colorful hanging balls featured outside the building. They have that nice laid-back charm you can take home for yourself. Big glassfish, octopi, turtles, and more can be hung up in your beach-themed home. Three Island Monkeys can also help you make arrangements to have items mailed.

There’s a whole lot to love here that goes far beyond these three spectacular gifts. The shop has a wide selection of artisan-made items, including kitchen tools, candles, baby toys, pet items, party goods, furniture, clothing, and even more.
