Best Smelly Tourist Gift

A Sea Sponge from the Tarpon Springs dock

Nothing quite says “I thought of you while on my Florida vacation” like a sea sponge from the Tarpon Springs dock area. I mean just look at it. It’s the perfect gift. It’s useful; even while wet, the naturally scratchiness of the sponge rakes off the first couple of dead layers of skin you’re always carrying around. You can also bestow a Tarpon Springs sponge on loved ones with a hygiene problem as a gentle clue that they should shower more lest they become as smelly as the sponge you’re giving them. The sponge also makes a perfect decorative item, giving off a unique scent that’s somewhere between red tide and old salt.
