Shopping for someone who loves boating can be a little difficult. The good news is that there’s a whole market dedicated to these enthusiasts. If your friend is a daredevil and likes to boat when the tide is high, perhaps a good quality leather jacket will make for a great present.
There are plenty of nautical gift options you can look into. We suggest avoiding fishing gear, maintenance tools, and drink coolers. Consider something quirky yet useful that brings a smile to your friend’s face.
Following are the top five gifts you can give to a boater friend:
Waterproof Solar Charger
If your friends love spending time on the water, they will appreciate having a reliable power source. We all love solar devices, as they are environmentally friendly and allow you to power various devices.
Look for a charger that is made with marine-grade materials and is designed to withstand harsh outdoor elements. Such a charger is perfect for charging phones, tablets, GPS units, and more. It’s also great for emergencies, providing power when no other source is available.
Underwater Camera Drone
If your friend has a thing for exploring the underwater world but hates getting wet, they will love an underwater camera drone. With this device, they can dive underwater without the claustrophobia that some people have with water. This gift is perfect for peaking into the world underneath.
The drone is operated using a remote. You can also control it by linking it with your mobile phone.
Rope Knot Guide
One of the things that most boaters brag about is their fancy knotting skills. However, if your sailor friend is a beginner and has trouble remembering the basic knots, let alone the advanced ones, this gift will be perfect for them.
Each card has a short description of the knot and its use, along with illustrations on how to tie it.
If your friend loves boating in the ocean, this gift will prove to be very thoughtful. Plus, it will give him the opportunity to tell a wild tale of how he got stranded in the water for hours, ran out of drinking water, and, thanks to you, had the filter to survive.
Tactical Survival Bracelet
Boating enthusiasts usually love to spend time on the water. This is why safety is always their top priority. A tactical survival bracelet is made of high-quality materials. It has features like a built-in compass, knife, and fire starter, so they will always be prepared in an emergency. Made of paracord rope, this device is extremely durable.
The compass will be their safety net, the knife can be used to cut the rope in an emergency, and the fire starter will allow them to signal for help with an SOS sign if you are on an island.
So, what do you think — will your friend like any of these?
