Silver Resin Crab - DG8800

Our new range of resin silver sealife has sold out twice and we are trying hard to keep these in stock! The crab at a respectable 23 cms in length should have plenty of meat on it! He's 17 cms deep and 4 cms thick!

£17.95 each
£30 for 2



Silver Resin Tonna Shell - DG8801

Silver resin tonna sea shell

Silver resin tonna shell

Not one of the larger items in our range of silver resin sealife, these are made to look like tonna seashells and can be displayed with the lip down or the lip up!  Approx 12 cms long, 9 cms high and 6 cms deep. We think these silver resin tonna shells display best with some of the other smaller resin shells. We've recently started selling a lot of these as accessories to florists looking for a vessel to create a display. So if you are looking for shop window display ideas, these would be a good choice.

£7.99 each
£13 for 2



Silver Resin Fish - DG8802

Our silver resin fish stand upright on their own and are 18 cms long and 13 cms tall with a depth of about 5 cms. Anglers amongst you could perhaps inform us of the species of fish!  He's looking handsome though and with apologies he doesn't have any green sheen, that's the reflection of the trees behind us!  

£12.95 each
£25 for 2



Silver Resin Murex Shell - DG8803

These pretty murex resin silver shells look good with the lip facing up or down. They measure 10 cms across, 7 cms high and 6 cms deep. A good accompaniment to this shell would be the silver resin tonna or how about alongside our silver resin lobster? It's the look!!

£6.99 each
£10 for 2



Silver Resin Long-tailed Fish - DG8804

I'm quite sure that while snorkelling in the Maldives, I have been overtaken by one of these - and with both eyes fixed on me! Our resin silver long tailed fish measures 21 cms in length, 15 cms long and at £15.95 you can save the airfare.

£15.95 each


Resin Silver Starfish - DG 8805

What's more enchanting than a resin silver starfish  measuring 15 cms in diameter and 4 cms deep. Priced to sell at £6.99 or 2 for £12. One of these with a lobster?

£6.99 each
£12 for 2



Silver Resin Lobster - DG8806

Super sized for a classic nautically themed decoration at 36 cms long,  8 cms high and 15 cms wide. One of our best sellers this year.

£24.50 each
£45 for 2



Silver Resin Plaice - DG 8807

In our range of resin silver sealife our plaice is the only item that can be wall hung with an area on the back large enough for a nail. It measures 33 cms long, 23 cms high and 5 cms thick. Looks shiny!

£18.95 each
£35 for 2



Silver Resin Trumpet Triton - DG8808

Designed to look like one of the worlds most beautiful seashells - the trumpet triton. It's impressive in size at 28 cms long, 10 cms high and 8 cms deep - could be used as the feature shell if displayed with the tonna and the murex shell.

£18.95 each

Metal Conch Seashell - DG8502

Metal conch shell

Probably not the best picture of these beautiful silver coloured metal conch shells but very much the look this year and we promise to add a few more pictures!  19 cms in length,  16 cms high and 12 cms deep. These metal conch shells are limited in supply and these look rather nice displayed with the other metal seashells we have added to the site.

£35 each


Silver Metal Spinusus Shell - DG8503

Silver coloured metal spinusus seashell and looks great alongside our metal conch shell  - these fast selling metal seashells come in some of the more interesting seashell patterns and this lovely item is 39 cms long. 18 cms high and 16 cms deep.  One for the bathroom or living room?  We will beat any price elsewhere and even have a chat with you about this product, give us a call on 01202 285163 seven days a week.

£22.50 each


Silver Metal Terebra Seashell - DG8504

Silver coloured metal, this is how we describe these as 16 years in retail and several years in internet retail means if we left the “coloured” part of the description out someone from trading standards will be ringing the bell. Very beautiful though (and silver coloured metal), terebras are one of our favourite seashells and attractive for display.

These are 50 cms long, 9 cms high and 5 cms deep and we won’t charge you too much in postage and packing to dispatch to your door. These look rather nice alongside our other (silver coloured) metal conch shells and spinusus shells.

£16.95 each


Silver Metal Clam - DG8505

Our silver coloured metal clams are representative of a seashell no longer being imported in to the UK so really, perhaps these are the best way to remember them, unless of course you scuba dive. They are very beautiful and a reminder of all things stunning in the deep blue sea.

They measure 53 cms in length, are 35 cms deep and approximately 12 cms high.  Excellent for classic nautical décor and just under £100. We can display these to touch and feel in our shop on Poole Quay, but always email first at to ensure we bring one down from "internet headquarters!"

£99 each
£180 for 2



Metal Salmon Bookends - DG8507

Not quirky, more classy - we like these silver coloured metal salmon bookends which are 24 cms long (each) and 12 cms high. A nice nautical addition for those fish cook books in the kitchen!



Silver Metal Scallop Shell Dish - DG8558

These quite charming silver coloured metal scallop shell dishes are 38 cms long, 32 cms deep and approximately 12 cms high and make for excellent décor (with a practical use) for nautically themed homes.

£59 each


Silver Metal Nautilus Shell - DG8559

Our silver coloured metal nautilus display shells have the look of the pearlised nautili with a little more weight and clearly these would be harder to break (therefore easier to post!) Excellent nautical décor and part of our very popular range of silver metal seashells. Very much a current look and please email if there are any silver metal seashells you require but don’t see up here as we have new stock arriving every week.

25 cms long, 19 cms high and approximately 14 cms deep.

£45 each



Metal Seahorse - DG8500

Our metal seahorse is often sold in combination with our metal seashells.

10 x 6.5 x 28cms high

£19.50 each
£35 for 2




Metal Triton Shell - DG8515

This is part of the heavier metal range rather than the resin silver range which is much lighter

13 x 13 x 38cm

£29 each


Wooden Ships Wheel with Fishing Boat - DG15433

A new wooden decorative ships wheel for us and measuring 22.5 cms. We often get asked if these work  outdoors. That really depends on how safe your neighbourhood is and how long you want it to last so probably best to ask yourself both these questions in no particular order whilst looking and assessing where you think it would look nice outdoors. Absolutely perfect for inside though and we do like the fishing boat which we think is a very thoughtful touch by the designers. Pretty rustic colours and with a hook on the back.

£8.95 each
£16 for 2


Sand and Sea Storage Chests - DG15512

We are now selling our storage boxes in sets of two. We were selling these individually but Lisa kept sending the wrong size out so to increase customer satisfaction and for a more accurate outcome how about both of them? They are made of wood with pleasant nautical detail and the largest measures  25 cms by 15 cms and the not so large comes in at 18 cms by 10 cms . This is length and width. The pleasure boat is not too scale in the background so you wouldn't be able to park it in the larger one. If you are looking for seaside decoration ideas you'll find the latest look nautical décor here folks.

£19.95 for the set of two


Blackboard with Nautical Glass Top - DG55628

Useful nautical décor, our blackboards measure 63 cms in length and 40 cms across, set apart from the competition by the rather fetching nautical glass frieze at the top of the board - excellent for beach hut décor, and you need never forget anything again.

£12.50 each


Beach Driftwood Pieces - DG7813

Beach driftwood pieces

Beach driftwood pieces for all kinds of work and these come in nice chunks - the smaller being about 3 inches and thicker and the longer pieces measuring in at around 6 inches but they're thinner. A great assortment of beach driftwood pieces for all kinds of uses and nicely dried so quite light - ten pieces will weigh just over 100 grammes. We'll take requests for certain sizes of beach drfitwood pieces but we'll usually selll a cross section and good varied assortment. Craft makers tend to like the smaller pieces as out on the Dorset coast it's easier to come across larger driftwood. I have a story about once taking my kayak over to Brownsea Island and finding all manner of beautiful driftwood so I filled the hull and paddled the mile or so back to Poole Quay but didn't quite get through the shipping lane upright - much easier just adding driftwood to your cart!

£0.60 for 1 piece
£5.50 for 10 pieces
£10.00 for 20 pieces



Decorative Mopani Wood


Mopani Wood

Decorative Mopani wood
One kilo mopani pieces are about 30 cms long

Mopane Wood


Real mopani (or mopane) driftwood originates from the northern parts of Southern Africa and is found nowhere else in the world. It is one of Africa's heaviest timbers and is sometimes even used for building houses, but here in the UK the wood is increasingly being used for interior and exterior decorative reasons as drfitwood decor.

Over the last year we have had more and more enquiries from interior designers and even other retailers to buy mopani wood for display and "stand alone" decor. This is a completely natural product and no two pieces are the same. They do of course vary in size and a smaller piece measuring several inches is likely to weigh around a kilo. Large pieces, of decorative mopane wood like the images shown are likely to weigh six or seven kilos and can be up to 20 to 24 inches in height and 18 inches in diameter.

For larger orders our prices will be below wholesale and the most competitive in the UK. Contact us with your requirements.

We hand pick the very best from large stock quantities but if there are particularly shapes you think you require please add a note in the shopping cart check out. The outdoor images are of a perfect piece which can be used as a feature in any room of the home and which jewellers and other corporate buyers have been buying for display purposes.

Please enter the weight you require below but bear in mind the smallest pieces will weigh about a kilo and be several inches long.

Oh and by the way... the nautical connection is tropical fish, because they absolutely love this stuff in their fish tanks (without the jewellery or Rolex watches though). Mopani wood is often used in aquariums because it doesn't decompose as quickly as other woods. Mopani wood for aquariums direct from Dorset Gifts!

If you have any questions about sizes or quantity (we have these large and small) please give Jamie a call on 07711 247762.

End to end they measure 115 cms and the paddle at its widest is approximately 15 cms. Two hooks on each end of the oar coatrack require a couple of nails to make hanging this lovely decorative item as simple as can be. The paddle coatracks are one of our best selling lines this year. We have these in slightly larger sizes too - so please email for a size and quote.

115 cms long by 15 cms at their widest.

Set of Two Wooden Beach Storage Boxes - DWBW12

Wooden Beach Storage Boxes


The wooden beach storage boxes are in and we like them! In our shop we sell the similar larger crates but these, which we sell in sets of two are a nice size storage box for a nautical room.

Decorative Wooden Seahorse

Our wooden seahorses are all handcarved and painted in white and make charming displays for those awkward corners of a beach style nautical home or nautical interior. We sell these in three sizes. At 60 centimetres the decorative wooden seahorse listed as small is quite substantial but they "grow" right up to 100 centimetres. This is a new line for us this year selling fast in our shops.

Paddle Key Rack - DG7435

Paddle Key Rack

Paddle Key Rack

Our suppliers describe these as paddle coat racks but they're 40 cms long and 7 cms deep so we're going with paddle key racks - everything about these says "keys" and not "coats" but check the size and hang from the decorative paddle what you feel comfortable with. Our Paddle Key Rack is certainly a dainty nautical good selling line (for keys).  

£9.95 each

Wooden Ship's Wheel

Wooden Ship's Wheel

Our wooden ships' wheels are made to a traditional style and of solid timber. They make a great nautically decorative item or maritime gift.

Wooden Ship's Wheel - DG7335

Wooden Ship's Wheel

Wooden Ship Wheel

Heard the one about the pirate who walks in to a bar with a wooden ship's wheel attached to the front of his trousers? The barman says to the pirate..."What's the ship's wheel for?" and the pirate replies "I haven't got a clue but it's driving me nuts". Well we have now decided to sell these at Dorset Gifts just so that you can break the ice, crack the joke and not get a laugh too. These ship's 'steering wheels' are a substantial 62 centimetres in circumference and don't come polished like our others but with a natural rustic look. Great as nautical wall decor and a must if you are looking for nautical design ideas but not recommended as a spare on your boat! These ships wheels are for decorative purposes only!

62 cms across

£42.50 each
£80 for 2



Whitewashed Ships Wheel with Rope - DG7440

Whitewashed Ships Wheel

From the spokes on one side to the spokes on t'other side we have approximately 40 cms radius to steer the boat away from troubled waters. We like the care our suppliers have shown with the roped finish too. Shipmates, these are white, we say "white washed" as we live on the edge, but will get some more images up for this item soon.  Something for the wall and at under £20 a solid wooden bargain if ever there was one.

£19.95 each
£35 for 2



  Wooden Ship's Wheel Mirror - DG7419

Wooden Ship's Wheel Mirror

Wooden Ship's Wheel Mirror

Heart Cockle Shell Tea Light Candle Holder

Heart Cockle Shell Tea Light Candle Holder - Beach Candle holder

These beautiful natural coloured heart cockle shell candle holders could be used many ways for nautical decor. The tip just has a base and although there is not a pin for a candle, you could stand one on it (as long as you take care to make sure that it is stable and safe) but we have tried these with tea lights and think they look best this way.

Cockle shells can sometimes have a very white bleached appearance but these are what we call a natural white colour and they work best with the candle light. These beach style candle holders are great as nautical centrepieces. If you are looking for seashell decor ideas, you might want to consider these.

These come in two sizes.

Nautical Knot Door Stop - DG7255

Nautical Knot Door Stop

Nautical Knot Doorstop

We sell some interesting nautical door stop products on our site and this is one of the best. Our nautical knot door stop! Incidentally, a nautical knot in speed terms is equal to 1.15 land miles per hour. This information could be useful to you one day, but these of course are the other type of knots and we'd say are essential nautical decor for any sea themed home. They weigh over a kilo apiece so are an object perhaps not to consider if your wife/husband throws things at you, but on a serious note look classy and fitting in any beachy home - most poular destinations are bathrooms and living rooms! Attractive maritime rope effect on this nautical rope doorstop.

14 cms high extending to 30cms at top of the rope.

£16.99 each
£30 for 2



Decorative Lobster Pots

Decorative Lobster Pots

Lobster Pots

Ever been in a nautical pub or nautical restaurant in the West Country? If so you will be sure to have seen these decorative lobter pots adorning the walls and ceilings of said establishments. But they are not only for pubs and restaurants, these decorative lobster pots look equally good in any nautically themed home or shop window display.

Bone China T Light Sea Urchin - DG1959

Bone china sea urchin

Well, we sell real sputnik sea urchins, alfonso sea urchins and many more... so when we came across these real bone china sea urchin t-lights and admired not only the seaside "glow" but also the size and beachy look of these, we knew we had to sell them. You just need to take the top off and place  a t-light inside in the little dish. It will out-shine any real sputnik sea urchin in its vicinity. These nautical t lights stand an impressive 9 cms high and 9 cms in diameter and make for a pretty marine decoration.

£15.99 each

Nautical Chest

These cute little nautical mini chests suit a variety of purposes and each has a different nautical design. If purchasing one or two we will select the most popular but if purchasing all four we will add one of each of the four designs.

Nautical Chest


Rustic Trinket Box  - DG15467

Rustic Trinket Box

Rustic Trinket Box

We like the way these trinket boxes have been handpainted to give a distressed look and the fishing floats on the top of each box as well as the real shell and rope. These rustic trinket boxes are hinged at the back and the internal area is 9 cms x 4 cms.

11 cms long  x 5 cms wide 

£3.99 each
£7 for 2
£10 for 3



Nautical Chest Money Box - DG11172



Dinky little money boxes. Beach hut money boxes have always been a strong seller for us, but how about these resin nautical chest boxes? 9.5 cms long. £10 note not included as it wouldn't be fair.




Wooden Decorative Anchor

Wooden Decorative Anchor

Wooden Decorative Anchor

These wooden decorative anchors are part of the range which includes the best selling Rustic Effect Lighthouse and have similar netting and shellcraft as surface decorations. The blue and white colour has been popular this year and these wooden decorative anchors can be hung from the rope at the top. Ideal for a nautical interior, beach style home or as an anchor gift! These anchors measure 10.5 inches in height, 6 inches in width and are approximately one inch deep weighing just 160 grammes.

£8.99 each
£15 for 2



Wicker Ships Anchor - DGTROT7

Another nautical line from our man in Manila. These rather nice real wicker anchors come in at 52 cms length and are 40 cms at their widest. They twist and they turn and no doubt they float too but have a hoop at the top to help you position them and they are, of course handmade.

£12.50 each
£20 for 2



Rocking Harbour Homes - DG5007


These rocking products are going to be a good seller this year and the harbour homes, which are made of wood, rock at 20 cms long and 14 cms high - if you've got one of these on the beach table chances are your friends and enemies will ask you where it's from - fancy being our agent?




Houses and Fish Nautical Ornament - DG4992


With the fish down deep, the ladder in place and the seaside houses (the one on the right looks like our shop!) this really is one of our favourite little ornaments. Made of wood and unique. 11 cms high and 6 cms wide.




Steep Hill and Buoys on Wooden Block - DG4994


And it is a steep hill too so the various buoys hanging over the edge are a good idea - made of wood and quite unique - not to be easily found elsewhere! Approximately 10 cms high and 10 cms long - that's a 1 in 2 hill!




Punch and Judy Show in Tin and Wood - DG5003


Let's not under estimate the importance of politically incorrect Punch and Judy shows. You can now have one in the home! At approximately 15 cms by 11.5 cms they shouldn't take up too much room either.




Wooden Ship's Propellor Model - DG7536

Wooden Ship's Propellor

Another interesting nautically themed line, a rustic brown coloured wooden ship's propellor which sells well alongside our wooden ship's wheel. These wooden propellor models have been made from a nice heavy hardwood and are suitable to be hung from walls and hung from walls only. As with our nautical ship's wheel we recommend this is only used for decorative purposes and never to propel a boat... not even in the direst of circumstances, thousands of miles from land in a tropical storm. If your boat develops a propellor fault please may we refer you to your motorboating handbook and the RNLI "Things to do when..." leaflet. Please leave this on the wall. A very popular addition to the decor of nautical themed pubs and restaurants or any nautical interior.

Boat Paddle

Boat Paddle

Boat Paddle

Chosen not least for the interesting neutral colour of the wood and design, these decorative boat paddles have always been good sellers and are just the right size for a "splash" of nautical style without taking over a room or area.

Decorative Sailor Pair


Sailaway Nautical Bunting - DG6515


Nautical bunting

Seaside bunting


It took me half my life to work out what bunting actually was. I always knew it was a certain attacking move in American baseball and something to do with rabbits but never knew just how popular and pretty nautical bunting could be! Not easy to take photos of though so we apologise for the images but feel displayed this way you get a better feel for the detail of the seaside themed polyester flags which measure 18 cms in depth along a length of approximately 260 centimetres. This nautical bunting will add a generously sized dash of decoration to a nautical home, sea themed occasion, beach side wedding or anywhere where nautical decor is called for. Please e mail us for new styles which we are sourcing and selling in our shop. We won’t be beaten on price either for bulk orders of bunting. Just request a quote.

£9.99 each



Red Ensign Flags

Nautical Red Ensign Flags


Red Ensign flags or “red dusters” date right back to the 17th Century and were flown by the Royal Navy and more latterly British Merchantmen. These are made from high quality rot-resistant polyester. We have a great-value printed range as well as the heavy duty sewn versions. These are supplied in individual blister packs with euroslots. The best in nautical decor as well as more practical sailing reasons, they also add a patriotic touch to any conservatory or garden.

Sounds of the Sea Metal Mermaid - DG8600

These beautifully sculptured metal mermaids have been received well, as mermaids usually are and she is certainly divine, measuring 50 cms high and 26 cms  across with a depth of 21 cms.  Although we know mermaids are usually solitary if you want to catch two there's a small discount.

£99 each
£180 for 2

A beautiful giant metal ornament on a stand of  a diving mermaid - a unique piece made of metal and standing 117 cms high, 40 cms at its widest and 65 cms deep. We have several more images to add so please email us at if you would like these sent to you.



Giant Beach Hut Display Stand - DG9042

Our huge beach hut display stands are a super line for our business customers out there seeking a really big sea themed display stand. These are available in brown or white and stand a whopping 212 cms with a width of 96 cms and depth of 38 cms. They have six shelves including the base so lots of room for those nautical accessories. Try one of our Welcome Aboard Liferings on the eaves at the top! Would look rather good within a beach hut too and if you've got one of those huts that cost £200,000 then you could take a "belt and braces" approach with one of these items!

£295 each
£550 for 2


Set of 2 Metal Birdcages - DG7948 

Not strictly nautical, well certainly not something we'd like to see a seagull in but perhaps a useful nautical wedding accessory or shabby chic (still not really sure what this truly means)  accompaniment to the beach hut or beach themed room at home. The larger of the two is 53 cms high with a 23 cms diameter and the smaller is 43 cms high with an 18 cms diameter and we like them a lot. Birds probably don't like them though, so leave them empty with a little note saying "this bird has flown" or "seagull" if you're particularly seaside orientated. We don't sell notes, just birdcages.

£39 for a set of two
