The season of giving is fast approaching and it might be wise to get a head start on your holiday gift lists. We find it best to narrow down what the person is passionate about and brainstorm gift ideas that might help fuel their passion. For instance, boaters, scuba divers, and anglers have distinct needs and preferences that make finding the perfect gift a unique challenge. But not to worry, we’ve done the brainstorming for you and created the ultimate holiday gift guide for ocean lovers and outdoor enthusiasts so that your gift hits the mark this holiday season.
Your Boat On A Shirt
The boater in your life is most likely in love with their boat. And we totally get it. Fuel their passion for boating with a custom boat UV shirt. That’s right—print the design of their boat on a shirt! It’s a thoughtful way to help them show off their pride and joy. Order a custom boat shirt with Shrimp Road Surf Co. They’ll create the design and print it on a high-quality UV shirt for total sun protection. Better yet, get it for the whole crew or family!
A dry bag provides peace of mind for anyone who embarks on frequent ocean adventures. These sturdy bags are perfect for boaters, scuba divers, and anglers, keeping equipment and personal items dry and safe on board. Dry bags come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, but we recommend reliable brands such as Yeti, Patagonia, or Osprey. No doubt, the person receiving this gift will get a lot of use out of it.
An underwater camera is a thoughtful gift to help your favorite scuba diver capture moments under the surface. Brands like GoPro and Olympus offer user-friendly cameras designed to thrive in various underwater conditions. The GoPro Hero series, with its compact design and 4K video capabilities, ensures vivid imagery and ease of use, even when navigating the depths. On the other hand, the Olympus Tough series provides exceptional durability and stunning image quality, making it a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts.
Donate To Marine Conservation In Their Name
Donating to an organization like Reef Relief in someone’s name is a thoughtful and meaningful gift, especially for those who are passionate about marine conservation and the environment. Choose to donate in honor or memory of someone and include a personal message if the organization notifies the recipient. Use this space to explain why you chose this gift and how it reflects their values or interests! It might even be a nice touch to give the recipient a physical card or certificate. You can create your own or see if the organization provides printable certificates for this purpose. Include details about the donation and what it could help achieve.
There’s nothing like a good pair of reliable leggings to wear on the boat or during a dive. Wanderlust Hats & Apparel makes durable (and stylish!) ocean-themed leggings for adventurers who want to show off their love for the ocean. (Check out these groovy whaleshark leggings!) This brand is committed to protecting our marine environments and donates a portion of every purchase to coral conservation programs.
Customized Nautical Chart Art
You can’t go wrong with a personalized gift, especially for the boater, scuba diver, or angler in your life. Consider creating customized nautical chart art featuring a favorite diving spot, fishing location, or boating area. Various retailers on Etsy specialize in customizable charts. This unique gift will celebrate their passion for the water. (Psst, Shrimp Road Surf Co has a special Key West chart UV shirt!)
Gift the angler in your life a game-changing accessory with a high-quality fish finder, designed to take their fishing adventures to the next level. Using advanced sonar technology, these gadgets offer a crystal-clear view of the underwater world, making it easier than ever to locate fish and navigate through their habitats. Garmin is a reliable brand for navigation and sonar technology, and you can find new or refurbished options on Amazon. Whether they’re a seasoned pro or just getting started, a fish finder is a practical tool that promises more successful (and sometimes enjoyable) fishing trips.

The best gift you can give your favorite boater, angler, or scuba diver is protection from the sun. Grateful Diver and Grateful Angler supply eye-catching apparel for the biggest ocean adventures. Explore our range of long sleeve UV shirts featuring unique artwork, and consider pairing it with a hat to shield their face in style.
