1. Reproduction Sea Diver Decorative Diving Helmet
Nothing is more synonymous with scuba diving than the antique diver’s helmet. Although almost no modern divers know what it’s like to dive with such a helmet, we still all love the symbol. Grab this desk or shelf decor for yourself or your favorite diver, and they’ll be thanking you every time they sit down to work.
2. Scuba Flag with Diver Vinyl Decal Sticker
BEST FOR YOUNG DIVERS
If you haven’t yet noticed, vinyl decal stickers are everywhere. Gen Z loves using these bad boys to decorate their water bottles, laptops and bedrooms. If you’re looking for a budget gift for a young diver, check out this sticker. Its flag and diver design leaves no doubt that the user is a certified diver.
3. Personalized Scuba Diving Ornament
While the recipient of this ornament will only be able to use it for a couple months a year, this type of decor will bring warm feelings year after year, whenever it’s removed from storage. Not only does the ornament show our sport of choice, it’s also personalizable, meaning you can choose to print your favorite diver’s first or last name across the BCD. Several colors are also available for the fins and mask.
4. Dive Flag Wine Bottle Stopper
BEST SMALL GIFT
A dive flag wine-bottle stopper is a sure bet if you’re looking for ocean home decor to give as a gift. Affordable and effective at conveying the mood, this small gift for scuba divers is available with several marine animals printed across the top. Each one is in the classic ‘dive flag’ style.
5. Sharks Area Rug
BEST FOR SHARK LOVERS
One of our very favorite home decor options for ocean lovers and scuba divers includes this rug complete with a shark pattern. Available in a range of sizes, this rug shows everything from whale sharks to hammerheads and thresher sharks. We could imagine this in a kitchen, living room or bathroom. This really is a great choice for anyone who can’t have too many sharks in their life.
6. Shark & Whale Posters
BEST WALL DECOR
Educational and stylish, these shark and whale posters are every bit as useful as decor as they are for learning the various marine species. They could work well in a kid’s bedroom or a bathroom, but really they are subtle enough to be hung just about anywhere. Our only criticism would be the inclusion of the orca on the whale poster.
7. Cast Iron Octopus Toilet Roll Holder
BEST FOR BATHROOMS
Some people might say that octopuses are an overused marine life decor motif, but we beg to differ! We don’t know a single diver who isn’t tickled by seeing these cephalopodes. And, this has to be one of the most inventive pieces of home decor for ocean lovers that we’ve seen. This cast iron octopus is designed to hold your toilet paper, blending into most bathroom interior designs.
8. Scuba Diver Shower Curtain
This diver shower curtain is one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a while. You can get the same print on a towel or throw pillow. Keep an eye out for periodic free worldwide shipping offers from this site.
9. Motivational Shark Throw Pillow
Add a little levity to your home decor with this motivational shark throw pillow. Thanks to the neutral color scheme on this pillow, it could probably be used on most couches or beds, but on closer inspection, your guests will see that this is just another addition to your ocean obsession. But who doesn’t love great white sharks that need a little pep talk?
10. Octopus Throw Pillows
BEST CLASSY DECOR
Marine life and ocean home decor isn’t the most subtle on the market. Some might even accuse it of being a bit garish. So, if you’re looking for some classier decor that still shows off your love for scuba diving, we can definitely recommend these octopus throw pillows. The square pillow covers don’t come with inserts, but once assembled, they will look great on your couch or bed.
11. Mermaid Tail Blanket
BEST FOR MERMAIDS
Give your favorite mermaid a relaxing tail sleeping blanket. This would be an enchanting choice for divers and ocean lovers, allowing them to stay cozy and dream of underwater adventures even when they’re on land. This particular blanket is available in adult-size and comes in a plethora of colors. But, child sizes and other patterns are also available across the internet.
12. Limited Edition Shark Respect the Locals PADI X Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Bottle

This particular Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Bottle can hold both warm and cold beverages, keeping them at the desired temperature for hours. Plus, by carrying the shark and PADI logo, everyone you meet will know you’re proud to be a diver.
13. Engraved Scuba Glass
Toast to underwater adventure with this scuba diver engraved glass. Whether you intend to use it for water, soda or something a tad bit stronger, this glass, which is some of the best drinkware for divers, is up for the task. We especially love the retro diving helmet design. A set of four would make them everyday drinking glasses, or simply buy one as a gift for someone who loves scuba.
14. Whale Shark Camper Mug
First caffeine, then scuba diving with whale sharks. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea in this camping-inspired ceramic mug displaying the largest fish in the sea. The navy sprinkles with white specks add a realistic touch to the design, making you think the shark is actually swimming through plankton-filled waters.
15. Octopus Coffee Mug
If you’re looking for the best home decor for ocean lovers and scuba divers to give as a gift, you’ve come to the right place. This octopus coffee mug is definitely something they’ll love. Affordable and well-made, this piece is something that will stay in the kitchen forever. We’re really just suckers (yes, we went there) for how the handle is one of the creature’s eight tentacles.
16. Deep Tea Diver Tea Infuser
The deep tea diver tea infuser is a long-time favorite. It comes in a variety of designs, but this silicone version is especially easy to use. Plus, it’s available in three fun and vibrant colors.
17. Biodegradable Rubbish Bags
Plastic is the enemy of the ocean, and although biodegradable rubbish bags might not be the most glamorous gift, eco-conscious divers will appreciate the thoughtfulness. Buying for yourself? This essential piece of home goods will come in handy for months while helping you make less of an environmental impact with your waste.
18. Whale Tail Beeswax Reusable Food Wrap
BEST FOR THE KITCHEN
For something a little less… trashy, we love this Whale Tail Beeswax Reusable Food Wrap. Unlike disposable plastic wrap, these beeswax wraps are reusable and long lasting.
