Prep for Shark Week Like a Pro



Even though it takes place in August, which happens to be way too close to the end of summer, Shark Week is hands down the best week of the summer. We know you’ve probably already set your DVRs and taken your summer beach vacation in preparation, but in order to fully commemorate the splendor that is Shark Week, you’re going to have to pick up a few things first…

While you’re watching chum fill the waters as you’re sitting on your couch, you might find yourself subconsciously hiding your feet under the covers, lest a shark come and grab you. Keep your toes safe with playful Wide Mouth Shark socks by  K. Bell ($10 women, $10.50 men). Even though these sharks are snacking on your feet, they won’t leave a scar.


If you decide to prepare yourself a fishy feeding frenzy tv dinner one night, you better keep the theme going. BotaniStix Shells on Copper napkin rings ($9) are not only stunningly beautiful, but their nautical beach vibe are perfect to accompany your dinner as your watching Jaws Strikes Back.


Glam it up for Shark Week with the fiercest jewelry around. Honey Rose & K’s Bite Me Necklace ($48) is the perfect piece to show everyone you mean business. The jawesome necklace is a Megalodon fossil shark tooth with a repurposed vintage rhinestone diamond and will add a bite of beauty to your Shark Week ensemble.

There are those of us that are into Shark Week, and then there are those that are into Shark Week. For those that fall in the latter category, you should probably just take your obsession to a year-round fad. Electra, the leading lifestyle and leisure bicycle manufacturer has a great solution for those of you who want to swim with the sharks. Their Cruiser Attitude Shark 3I Midway Grey ($859.99) is one killer bike. Ride the town in style with the baddest predator around.


To go along with all your fabulous Shark Week cocktails, it’s only fitting to have something just as fintastic to drink them out of. ModCloth‘s Sip at Your Own Risk Tumbler ($15.99) seems like it was made just for Shark Week.


This one is just self explanatory. Why sit on your couch and watch Shark Week when you could be watching from the comfort of inside a shark’s mouth? It’s a no brainer. This Shark! Bean Bag Cover is the only home comfort you need…


Get your comic relief from this clever Shark in My Soup Bowl ($44). The porcelain bowl is perfect for soup, but would also make a nice bowl for dips. Surely whatever chum you decide to put in your great white shark bowl will be something worthy of sinking your teeth into.
