Novelty Gifts for Pilots

Make a pilot feel special by giving him a novelty gift. A pilot has stressful jobs, as he has the lives of hundreds of people in his hands while he flies the aircraft. In addition, pilots are usually away from home and loved ones on a regular basis. An aviation-themed novelty gift is a way to put a smile on the face of a stressed-out pilot.

Aviation-themed Ties

Even though ties are a typical gift for men, they are an important part of the pilot's uniform. Give a tie with classic World War II fighter jet designs on it.

Helicopter Calendar

Give the helicopter pilot in your life a helicopter calendar. Impress your pilot friend by giving her a calendar which displays 12 different types of helicopters in captivating photographs. Such a calendar can be found at

Dawn of Flight Playing Cards

This collectable deck of cards has photographs of the women and men that pioneered early flight. The pictures are mostly in black and white, with some are even in colour.

Key Chains

Key chains make great gifts as they are small and affordable. There are key chains for all occasions. To give a meaningful key chain to a pilot, find one that has air speed and/or horizon indicators on it, or one that is a replica of the plain the pilot flies.

Airplane Paper Clips

Give aeroplane paper clips to your pilot friend so he can organise his paperwork in style. Coworkers of the pilot will wonder where he got such a simple yet noticeable item.

Aviation Clocks

Like the key chains, you can find clocks in the shapes of horizon and airspeed indicators. Or give a clock that looks like a compass. These clocks can also come in desk sets accompanied by pens.

Aviation Coasters

Your pilot friend will be proud to put her favourite mug on top of her new coaster that looks exactly like an airspeed and horizon indicator. Buy a whole set with about six different coasters for your friend to enjoy.
