Does coming up with ideas for all the people on your holiday list consume too much time and contribute to your stress? Don’t fret — we have the best holiday gift ideas yet!

Marine Layer Duofold Infinity ScarfThe Marine Layer Duofold Infinity Scarf in Sea Blue is multi-seasonal and multi-functional. It’s stylish in the colder months, and on the boat, this oh-so-soft scarf can protect hair from the wind and double as a skirt when heading to a dockside restaurant.

AnchorRosyRedBag- croppedCaptain Blankenship, an organic beauty company, makes products with organic and wild-harvested ingredients. Wrap up their all-purpose Anchor Balm and Rosy Red Lip Balm, nestled in a silkscreened bag, with the summery Ray of Light Sea Salt Hair Spray. The sea salt gives hair a beachy texture and its organic chamomile, lemon, lime, and grapefruit essential oils gently lighten tresses.



SeaTurtle oceana cookie cutterIf your loved one usually smells more of sugar and spice, this sea turtle cookie cutter is a novel present. It comes with a sea turtle adoption certificate and supports Oceana’s work protecting sea turtles.

Cheating the seaDoes someone on your list love action and adventure books? Rescue Pilot, Cheating the Sea by Jerry Grayson recounts rescues at sea, including the infamous Fastnet Yacht Race of 1979, when 25 yachts were lost during a storm. Grayson and his helicopter rescue crew put their own lives at risk to winch shipwrecked sailors to safety.


Effie's book coverFor readers who devour tales of family, friendship, and love (with an occasional racy pulse), Evanthia’s Gift by Effie Kammenou makes a wonderful holiday present. This warm tale of generations captures readers and lets them forget that cold winds are blowing outside. By the time this novel has been savored, spring will be closer than ever.


Hudson Navy Anchor (1)We just want to adorn babies, don’t we? Adding in the nautical motif of this hand-knit Hudson beanie makes any wee one more adorable. It’s knit in soft acrylic and comes in sizes from newborn to eight years old, because all kids deserve warmth and cuteness!


whales tail ShirzayA sparkly whale’s tail necklace says the wearer is a stylish sea-goer. Beautiful apatite stones, sterling silver and, of course, a lobster clasp make this a lovely gift. In addition, Sueanne Shirzay Artisan Jewelry is offering readers a discount on all items through the end of 2015 with the code BOATING15.


SandbarIt’s never too early to think of summer, and The Sandbar is a fun product that creates a personal shade and refreshment cabana (and probably sparks a party) at every boat raft up.


Simrad GO7 (Front) Home Screen HR PRGThe Simrad GO7 standalone multi-touch chart plotter and echo sounder is intuitive even for those with little or no experience with chart plotters. Know a boater who wants to go more places and do more things? This will be an appreciated and valued gift.



Nautical Scout pansWhile the gift of a bigger boat may be ideal, giving something that makes a boat seem roomier is great, too. Those that cook aboard will enjoy the luxury of two- and four-quart collapsible pots that also nest within each other. Nautical names including Sea Green and Marlin Blue are as fun as the pots are practical.


Bogg BagThe Bogg Bag is a sturdy, tip-proof, non-slip, waterproof, and washable carryall for the boat and the shore. It has three clear accessory bags that pop into the holes to keep smaller items within reach. Give it as is or customize it, and maybe toss in a few more practical and fashionable items from our list.


CJ lifejacket_2089CC ALTDon’t forget your canine companions this holiday season! Make them more comfortable on the boat by swapping their bulky life jacket for a Critter’s inflatable life jacket. The automatic inflatable life jacket for animals uses the same technology and UL-approved materials as auto-inflate human life jackets.


What Happens on the Boat ZazzleSometimes, only a funny tee shirt will do. If this one doesn’t quite describe the boaters you know and love, there are more to choose from, including I don’t need therapy. I just need my boat!
