Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? There's only a few weeks left until the big day, so even if you haven't started, we've got your back with more than 30 gift ideas ranging from small stocking fillers all the way up to larger items the sailor in your life will cherish for decades. You can view the selected gift range over on our online shop here, or take a look below from some of the highlights.
Nauticalia Hip Flask
Perfect for a sneaky tipple on the go, this hip flask is emblazoned with a navy and white nautical theme.
Named Red Stacking Mugs
This way you'll always know who's done the washing up, and you'll always have the right mug!
Coast FL14 Head Torch
Bright and convenient, the FL14 headtorch from Coast can keep you hands-free and safe aboard deck no matter the weather or time of day!
Port and Starboard Socks
At sea, an emergency can happen at any time, and it is vital that everything aboard can be clearly identified and described. Where 'left' and 'right' could lead to confusion, 'port' and 'starboard' are perfectly clear and unambiguous to a seafarer (providing they're put on the right feet)!
Skipper Socks - 3-Pack
Ideal for proving your authority aboard a vessel - now in a gift pack!
The Fitzroy Nautical Clock Set
Starting from £80, these mariner's clocks are ideal for anyone with a boat that needs an upgrade. Beautifully crafted from brass, they include quick fitting and vibration resistant attachments that reduce the sway on the mechanisms inside and ensure their accuracy no matter the conditions you're sailing in. The Fitzroy range comes in formats including a standard Clock, tide clock, barometer and Thermometer/Hygrometer.
And of course, for the sailor who has everything, we offer gift cards ready to be personalised by you. Let them chose exactly what they want this year with a gift card in multiples of £5.
