If you have a man in your life who loves to sail or boat, then consider getting him a nautical-themed gift for a special occasion, such as his birthday or Christmas. Nautical-themed gifts cover a wide variety of useful and decorating categories. You can strike a balance and incorporate your own creativity. But set your budget first before it gets too far out to sea that you can't rescue it.

Life Raft

Purchase a life raft for the gift recipient's boat. A life raft is a good idea for any serious sailing or boating enthusiast. If something should go wrong on his boat, then he can help get passengers to safety on a life raft. It also would be a good idea to include an emergency first aid kit with the life raft.

Sailing Lessons

For the novice sailing enthusiast, purchase sailing lessons. Keep in mind that this can be an expensive gift, and it may require travel funds should the gift recipient need to travel far to get to the sailing location. There are many companies that provide sailing lessons. Get referrals from friends and those who work at sailing/boating shops. Also, make sure that any company you choose has all of the proper licenses and certifications.

Coast Guard-Approved Life Jacket

Make safety first by getting the gift recipient a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket that he can have on the boat with him at all times. You can tie a big fabric ribbon around the life jacket and present it without any other gift wrapping.

Nautical Maps

Buy a book of nautical maps of the waterways and water areas that the gift recipient frequents or would like to visit. For the serious boater, this is an excellent gift and helps to keep him on track and know where he is in unfamiliar waterways.
