With the Spring Season upon us, we thought we’d share some must-have apparel and accessories for the sailor in your life (or yourself!).
Breathe new life to your lucky sunglasses, you know the ones that have somehow managed to not go overboard. High quality polarized shades are a must on the water! We found this amazing product, to replace scratched or missing lenses in your favorite pair of sunglasses. Fuse Lenses are Polarized, mirrored, provide night vision, you name it! They list just about every make and model for popular sizes, but if you don’t see your pair, you can send them in and they will cut a custom pair for you with the color and feature of your choice. We love them because comfort and personal style can come in all shapes and sizes.
The one that started it all, the Authentic Original is still hand-sewn using time-honored craftsmanship, with premium materials and the wet/dry traction that made them legendary. Effortlessly setting the bar for what a real boat shoe should be, seafarers love the A/O’s capability, and street-farers crave its classic cool. Full-grain, unlined leather uppers resist effects of salt and freshwater to provide long lasting wear coupled with rust-proof eyelets and rawhide laces. The original razor-cut Wave-Siping™ for ultimate wet/dry traction provides sure footing boat deck to back deck. Already have a well-loved pair? Check out the Sperry website for updated styles as well as nautical inspired clothing and accessories. We love them because Sperry Top-Sider's boat shoes are tried and true.
We found this necklace quickly, but nautical jewelry can be a thoughtful gift this season. From knot earrings from Tiffany, sailor bracelets and Mystic Whaler bracelet from Mysticknotwork, to a diamond pendant from your local jeweler. The possibilities are endless! We love this idea because it’s a great way to capture and memorialize a moment.
You have to check out this product! It is a classic dog leash, perfect for your favorite crew member. It has a spliced loop at one end and a bronze shackle on the other for easy attachment. Made of Sta-Set and available in many different colors for the perfect match. We love this because it will truly set you and your crew member apart.
The Doggy Boat Ladder is an excellent choice for use with arthritic, older, or overweight pets. It’s portable, lightweight and durable and makes boating fun and safe for you and your faithful friend. The ladder attachment is adjustable to smaller widths by sliding the arms inward. We love this because even old sea dogs can use some help from time to time.
Try these easy but practical finds at stores nearby.
Classic Nalgene (hyperlink) water bottle is amazing for any purpose.
Here’s one for the future sailor/boater joining the team this year. Check out these cute baby gowns which could easily work for a boy or a girl.
Finally, just in case someone needs a refresher course, share this funny book, Sailing for Dummies, when you need a good laugh! This can go so many ways, from a possible gag gift to give a power boat lover, to share your love of the wind and water with a new convert.
