Five Presents To Buy Boat Lovers This Holiday Season

For someone who loves boating, we have a myriad of gifts that you’ll love to purchase for the special boat lover in your life. From cameras that can be taken out on the water to better foot attire to avoid any accidents, we’ve selected these five present ideas because they are great for anyone who spends time on the water. In addition, they are all great presents that aren’t gender specific or even in a certain age bracket. Plainly put, these presents are for people who love spending time outside, on a boat, with the wind flowing through their hair. Even if you’ve already purchased presents for the person who loves boating in your life, these gifts can always be bought any other time of the year.

Water Friendly Footwear

The first superb present you should purchase for your loved one is water friendly footwear. What exactly is water friendly footwear? It’s footwear that’s great for going on boats with! This type of footwear is waterproof, slip-proof, comfortable, and constructed for quick drying. They are also fashionable pieces of attire that will help you stay comfortable and safe while you have fun boating. If you’re shopping around for the perfect gift to get a loved one, then water friendly footwear is a great gift because so many people wear improper footwear and run the risk of becoming hurt due to it.

You can find water friendly footwear at shoe or department stores and the best brands to purchase are Crocs, Tevas, Birkenstocks, Adidas, and Columbia. Each of these brands created shoes that will keep someone safe while doing anything in the water. It’s vital that you have the right shoes to boat in to avoid anything detrimental happening to your feet. Additionally, they dry fast, so you don’t have to worry about making a mess on the ride home.


Does someone in your family love going bird watching while boating or watching the ecosystems while drifting on a pontoon? Binoculars are a great gift for people who love boating and the outdoors. What’s neat about binoculars is that they can be used for so many things and people seldom think of them as a present. This present is also perfect for a man or a woman no matter the age as long as they love seeing things on the water better. The Steiner brand is a great option for binoculars because you’ll have a very sharp view of whatever the focal point may be. In addition, there are high light transmission boosts, so you can see in the dark.

Fishing Gear

Fishing gear is always needed by someone who adores boating and fishing. From hooks to lines to sinkers, your loved one can always do with some extra gear for fishing. Take some time to fish around with your loved one to see exactly what they are missing in their tackle box, so you can buy them something they’ll love and use frequently. What’s great about fishing gear is that you know they’ll need whatever you end up buying them since they frequently go out fishing. If you’re not sure about anything that has to do with fishing, then check out our blog Essentials For Your Fishing Tackle Box to learn what a fisherman needs.


If you know that your loved one wants to disconnect from reality when they going boating, but still capture pictures, then a waterproof special camera is a great option. With a special type of camera called a Sioeye, you’ll be able to take pictures and live stream videos while you’re out on Lake Lanier. While your loved one can disconnect from reality, they can also capture the memories of your fun day together and share it with everyone on board. A camera for boating is a great gift because you can’t buy snapshots of memories and a photo says a thousand words.

Water Activity Gear

Lastly, we have water activity gear that you can purchase for your loved one. While this gift category is a bit broad, it’s still a great one because the gift receiver will be able to have some fun with it once the weather warms up. Now, you’ll need to do some digging to determine the best water activity gear for your loved one, but there is a myriad of options out there to purchase. You can buy water skis, wakeboard, or an inner tube. Poke around and ask your loved one what they might want and surprise them with it.
