Gift Ideas and Gear for Boaters - 2019

Gift Ideas and Gear for Boaters - 2019

by Veronica Jeans December 16, 2019

The holidays are upon us, and finding gifts for the boater on your list can always be a challenge. We have compiled a list of some of our favorite cool finds around the internet. Whether you are looking to deck your decks with boughs of kelp, refresh your wardrobe or accessories or find some new toys to enjoy on the water, we’ve found many things that already have us smiling.

Toys for boats

We guarantee the boater you are shopping for has many gadgets for accurate navigation, correct depths, and the ability to see further, through black of night and thick of fog. We found some amazing options so that everyone can enjoy the next cruise or sail.

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

This one is fully submersible!! It floats!! Left it on deck in a rainstorm? Looks like it would survive. This can get splashed and reviews say it can handle a little roughness should it get dropped or knocked over during an acceleration or tack. It has a long battery life and AUX port, this device can also be paired with other speakers for a surround sound effect, which couples perfectly with this Waterproof Outdoor Solar Power Portable Charger It can be powered anywhere under direct sunlight. We love these because they have a failsafe for just about every situation on a boat. Now if only the power bank floated…


Nested Wineglasses - Save Space!

We found these nested wine glasses that condense to take up less space, which is always a plus in a tiny galley! Couple them with these awesome multipurpose Slip On Silicone Coaster Charms. Why have static coasters and separate wine markers when you can have a two-in-one? The set of six flexible Slip-On Silicone Coasters wraps tight around the base of your wine glass to prevent slippage, protect your tabletop and help you find your drink again. We love these because they are extremely functional.

Windscoop Ventilating Sail

Have you seen these around the marina? The Windscoop Ventilating Sail puts an end to hot, stuffy cabins and sleepless nights. The Windscoop is aerodynamically designed to force the slightest breeze down into your cabin to keep you cool and comfortable. It can be hung from a halyard boom or a roller furling sheet. Fits any hatch or companion-way up to 4 feet wide. Nothing to install. Since the Windscoop has no tie-downs, once you put it up, it will follow variable wind. Works with most screens. Windscoop is packed in its own protective nylon storage bag. Colors vary. We love this because somedays even popping down below to get something can be a much dreaded chore.

 Hammock For Two

This rugged, incredibly comfortable hammock for two packs down exceptionally small, making it great for boats. Its super tough high-tenacity nylon taffeta is also breathable, lightweight and soft on your skin. It's your all-access pass to relaxation. Big enough for two and palatial for one, the DoubleNest still manages to stuff easily into its attached compression sack. Take it anywhere, set it up in seconds flat, lay back and…oh, did you want to join me? I've got room for one more! We love this because it allows you to easily kick back and enjoy the sun, wind, and surf quickly, easily and thoroughly.

ReelSonar Wireless Bluetooth Smart Fish Finder

The mobile fish finder and app that you can bring with you wherever you fish. The iBobber was designed with portability and flexibility in mind so anglers of all skill levels and types could take the latest in portable sonar fish-finding technology with them on the go. Using an iPhone or Android mobile device anglers can mark fish, map depth contours and underwater structure, save water temp, weather and location, species, photos, and hot spots and choose to share on social media directly if desired.

Docktail Butler Marine Food and Cocktail Table

Perfect for entertaining! Includes Adjustable Folding Rod Holder Mount - Large Serving Tray for Grill - Boat Cup and Bottle Holder - Boating Accessories Storage - Cockpit Dining

The Scrubba™ Wash Bag

It’s the world’s smallest washing machine and the ultimate travel essential.

A modern take on the old fashioned washboard. Great for longer sails. The Scrubba bag also doubles as dry sacs to keep gear dry between washes. We love this for its multi-functionality as well as it’s practical inventiveness.

Cool Led Gloves

Cool Fingerless LED Flashlight Gloves

Docking at night or fishing at night can be difficult. With these cool gloves you will be able to do anything at night when you don't have a light, especially docking when the electricity is not working on the dock.

How To: Knots Coffee Mug

Are you a sailor, a whaler, or just a good scout? UPG will help get you ship-shape with our How to Tie Knots mug. The mug has a cleat for a handle and comes with a length of rope. As soon as you open the box, you can follow the step-by-step instructions to learn eight classic knots. So what are you waiting for? Pour yourself a hot cup of joe or chai, or cocoa, or hot buttered rum, and practice tying knots you'll need for sailing, fishing, or earning a merit badge. Is it the perfect coffee mug or the perfect pastime? (It's a tie.) You should probably buy two, one for home and one for the boat! For sailors and lubbers. Brine not included.

Leather writing journal for boaters

You can draw mind maps, sketch ideas or write notes freely on the page. Perfectly work as writing journal, drawing pad, scetch book, travelers notebook, diary planner, coupon organizer, photo album and so on.

Handmade Nautical Anchor Bracelet Navy Blue and stainless, Handmade in the USA

This is from Matt, the owner: "Snags, grabs, and scratches...those are complaints we heard about anchor bracelets, and why we hesitated to make them. So, we carefully designed these anchors with a curve to rest on your wrist and not catch on everything or everyone that dares touch them.

We are liveaboard sailors and everything we make in our shop could be made aboard as we travel. Real sailors making for other sailors, this is your chance to join in the New England tradition as it enters the fourth generation."

personalized puzzles

Personalized Puzzles, Made in the USA

This is for those boring circumnavigation days when you can have fun putting this puzzle together. The best part is you can create these puzzles from your own photos.

But I must warn yer, this is for the experienced sailor or puzzler only! :)

We hope you enjoyed this short but packed list of gift ideas for boaters. Have something else to add? Let us know in the comments or give us a shout out on our Facebook page! Cheers Mate.
