If you have a boat owner in your life and you still haven’t figured out what to get them for the holidays, don’t worry – there are plenty of great seafaring items to choose from! To help you out, we’ve compiled a quick list of some of our favorite gift ideas for boat owners this year including our very own shock-absorbing boat seat pedestal, functional products, and ways to entertain.
If you have a fisherman in your life, then a device that allows him or her to locate nearby fish more easily is the perfect gift. In addition to this functionality, the high-sensitivity GPS allows waypoints to be marked so that your loved one will be able to keep track of brush piles, stumps, docks, and other items. Many boat owners also use this as a navigation tool to more easily return to the boat ramp.
This year, gifts for boaters and a lot of other people on your list might look a little different because of face masks. The truth is that we’re not going to need face masks forever, but for now, they’re a great way for people to express their favorite hobbies and a whole lot more. You can find plenty of masks on the market right now that are nautical themed such as ones decorated with boats and others with sea creatures.
As any boat owner knows, scuffs and other markings on your vessel are simply a fact of life. The good news is that boat erasers will get rid of these blemishes very easily. They don’t contain bleach or any harsh chemicals, which means that you can safely use them on both the boat itself and on anything you bring on board. All you need to do is add water to the eraser, squeeze it, wipe away the marks, and dry the area.
No list of gift ideas for boat owners would be complete without our personal favorite, the shock-absorbing boat seat pedestal. This device can be retrofitted to most types of boat seats and will absorb the often-harsh vibrations that every boat experience whenever it’s out on the water. This improves the driver’s comfort and helps avoid health issues such as aches, pains, back issues, and more.
There’s a good chance that nearly every person who’s ever been on a boat has either spilled a drink because of the waves or seen it happen to someone else. The easy fix is to pick up an anti-spill cup holder that will keep your drinks steady at all times. These items can also be used while in your car, which makes them the perfect versatile gift for a loved one.
There are many different types of gift ideas for boat owners that are for entertainment and one of the best is a waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Having music available always makes the boating experience more enjoyable and not worrying about the device getting wet makes it even better. One particular speaker on the market, the IPX7, can stay submerged for 30 minutes in one meter of water.
Food is always an important part of every boating adventure and keeping your food and beverages nice and cold will make everyone onboard happy. These ice chests typically come with bottle holders on top, which makes them even more convenient. Whether your loved one plans to have a picnic out on the ocean or wants to bring along some bottles of suds, this is the perfect gift.
This year has been a precarious time and we want to make sure that everyone stays safe and sound while continuing to enjoy the holiday season. The shock-absorbing boat seat pedestal created by Seaspension® is a great way to show your favorite boat owner that you care for their health and safety.
