If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone who loves boating, fishing, or just spending time on the water, a boating or nautical themed gift can be both useful and appreciated. Fortunately, they come in every price range. Here are some suggestions for that boating and water lover in your life.
Check out a local boat show, where you can browse all kinds of gift ideas, including a new boat! You’ll find some of the latest and greatest gift ideas at any boat show – whether it’s books and DVDs, technology and gadgets, gear and accessories, or simply a fun or personalized gift with that extra special touch.
Technology and Gadgets – From the latest boating gadgets to boat accessories that make life easier or more fun on the water, every boater appreciates thoughtful boat gifts that are fun to play with too.
Marine GPS Navigation – Technology for GPS navigation is always evolving. The latest gadgets for handheld or dash mount GPS devices make a great gift for the boater enthusiast, for replacements or an upgrade gift.
Marine Fishfinder – Your favorite fish hunter may appreciate a little help reeling in the catch of the day. New designs in marine fishfinders feature excellent shallow-water performance with alarms for fish size, shallow water or deep water. They can even provide wide viewing angles. With inexpensive grayscale or premium full color units, there are many price point options for marine fishfinder gifts.
Boating Book Gifts – Adding to a boater’s library of boating resources is always appreciated, especially by relatively new boaters. There are endless options for boating books, including: learning how to boat, boat maintenance, seamanship, buying a boat, living aboard a boat, navigation books, family boating books and more.
Nautical Letter Clothes and Gifts – The colorful Nautical Flags that are used in boating each stand for a letter of the alphabet and are a great way to spell out Crew, Captain or First Mate. Have them printed on shirts, towels, caps, bags, mugs, or any other item you’d like to personalize. Speaking of personalized, any boat owner would love items sporting their boat name, marina or favorite boating destination, including guest and hand towels, throw pillows or a welcome mat.
Nautical Decor Gifts – Decorating your boat with nautical inspired flair such as anchors, ship’s wheels, lighthouses, nautical flags or favorite marine life is a great way to demonstrate your passion for boating and the water.
Any furniture, seat covers, pillows, canopies, or bags that come in a Sunbrella fabric – which is very tolerant of UV rays and heat – will last and look good longer.
Marine Life Cookie Cutters – For the nautical party hostess, Amazon has sets of marine life cookie cutters including a seahorse, whale, dolphin, tropical fish, shark, seagull, crab, lighthouse, or lobster. Use them for cookies, scones, even tea sandwiches.
Happy shopping, and don’t forget the nautical gift wrap!
