Do you have a boater on your Christmas list? Here are some ideas for great gifts for boaters. These are things that as a boater in the Pacific Northwest I love. Boaters don’t have an abundance of space onboard, but some things are very useful to have. Whether they have a sailboat or powerboat, here’s some ideas to consider for what to put under the Christmas tree!
Between packing things to and from the boat, to being at a port and going into town for supplies, boaters always need totes. Why not create a personalized custom tote!
Insulated tumblers are a must on boat. Tumblers keep your coffee hot, and your cocktails cold wherever you are, from the cockpit to a dinghy ride ashore.
3. Heated blanket
A heated blanket is an essential staple on my boat. Preheating your bed in the shoulder season, and keeping you warm in the winter. My new found love for heated blankets is keeping you warm for afternoon lunch and drinks in the cockpit in the cooler weather!
4. Hot Water Bottle
Another great way to keep warm on the boat using no power. A hot water bottle is a great staple on the boat.
5. Travel Bocce
Travel bocce is a great addition to the boat. It’s lightweight and compact, making it easy to bring ashore and find some space to play. This is a great game I’ve loved having aboard, you can pretty much always find a little space to play.
Padded seats are an added luxury on any boat. They add comfort in the cockpit, to the front deck when reading, or even in the dinghy!
7. Inflatable Paddle Board
An inflatable standup paddle board is great on the boat. It packs away to a reasonable size to stow, and it’s a great way to explore and get some exercise while you’re at anchor.
Nautical bracelets are always fun, wearing them while you’re out boating, or reminding you while you’re on land that you should be out boating.
9. Solar Inflatable Lanterns
While I do like to reduce plastic, these are nice on a boat. They work great for adding some light in the cockpit, taking out on the dinghy, or an alternate to candles down below.
Nautical oil lamps are a lovely addition to the boat. Offering a great light in the cockpit, or down below in the cabin. Oil lights are lovely and make a great gift.
