Gifts For Boat Owners

Buying gifts for boat owners can be a challenge. One way to decide is who will be receiving the gift. Will it be the Boat Captain, First Mate/Galley Cook, and/or a Boating Family?

The next consideration is your budget. Gifts can range from stocking stuffers to electronics and more. Keep in mind space is usually very limited on a boat which is a consideration when purchasing gifts.

Boat Captain - Stocking stuffers could include gift and fuel cards, a multi-tool, floating keychain, or marine whistle.

Safety items are another option - life jackets, harness, or a search light.

It may be difficult to purchase clothing for boaters such as shoes, boots, rain gear, or sunglasses. A gift card for a marine store allows the boater to choose his/her own gear.

If the boater on your list subscribes to a particular boating magazine, offering to pay for a renewal is a gift idea.

Electronic choices - waterproof VHF radio, GPS, chart plotter, radar, or depth sounder.

New boaters may benefit from educational boating books, a dvd, or a gift certificate for a course they wish to take.

First Mate/Galley Cook - Cookbooks, nesting pots, galley items such as thermos, nautical placemats, a welcome aboard mat are all gifts to consider for the galley cook. Storage containers, color coded glasses, and napkins are more options.

Speciality coffee or tea along with a nautical mug, or a selection of their favorite spices are small items to add to the galley.

Depending on your budget, and if it is on the boater's wish list, a barbeque for the deck railing will expand the cook's ability to prepare meals on board.

Boating Family - There are many gifts a boating family can enjoy. A nautical theme calendar, card games to play on board, matching t-shirts or hats with their boat’s name, or a book on their cruising area are all gifts which could easily be put in a gift basket.

The gift basket itself may be a useful for boating, for example, a duffel bag, folding cart on wheels, or a large cooking pot. Nautical themed napkins, paper plates and non perishable food add to a gift basket the family would appreciate.

A logbook for writing about their on the water adventures is another for the boating family. A camera and photo album are another way for a family to record their boating trips.

Whether you choose a boating gift for the captain, firstmate/galley cook, or a boating family, there are many types of gifts to fit any budget.
