Keep their inspirations high with an annual subscription to a sailing or cruising magazine like Cruising World. Written by sailors for sailors, these make classic gifts.

Helly Hansen Crew Jacket

You’ll find a couple Helly Hansen products on our wish list in 2021. Their quality and craftmanship is undeniable and a favorite of sailors. Fashionable, waterproof and windproof, this best-selling sailing jacket keeps you dry and warm in chilly conditions.

Helly Hansen Pack

Compact and waterproof, Helly Hansen backpacks and dry bags are your best friend while on charter. Perfect for those dinghy rides to shore, these packs are convenient and can hold all your souvenirs without the plastic shopping bag. 

Log book

Quoted as being “the best log book available today”, this gift is for the serious captain in your life who is looking to advance as a yachtsman. Designated as a cruise planner, this leather-bound log book keeps track of your hours at sea.

Soggy Dollar Rum Cake

For those lovers of the British Virgin Islands, a Soggy Dollar rum cake makes the best gift that’ll surely have them fondly remembering sipping on a famous Painkiller cocktail on the beaches of Jost Van Dyke. This 4-pack of mini rum cakes includes flavors like vanilla, coconut, chocolate chocolate chip and cinnamon pecan streusel. 

Anchor Bracelet

Show off your love for the water year-round with this unisex anchor bracelet. It comes in five colors, including navy, and can be easily worn daily or dressed up for nights on the town. It’s waterproof and fast-drying so it never loses its shape.

Beer Koozies

Keep your canned beverages ice cold with these fun life-preserver themed koozies. Built with two thermal insulation layers, these insulators keep your beverages at the right temperature while keeping your hands dry from condensation.

Boat candle

Looking for a fun stocking stuffer? Look no further than these charming candles in the shape of a sailboat. Made with food-grade paraffin wax, these are ideally used as cake toppers for any nautical-themed celebration.

Chillys reusable bottle

Sustainability means protecting our oceans, beaches and planet from pollution like disposable plastics. Show your love of the ocean by using a reusable water bottle when you’re on the go. These reusable BPA-free bottles from Chilly’s are our favorites.

Gift certificates

Last on our list is the best idea of all! Give your loved ones the ultimate gift and plan for the next time you’re on board with us. Sunsail offers gift certificates and branded sailing gear, so you can put a smile on the whole family’s faces this winter.
