16 Unique Nautical Themed Gifts For Travelers

 16 Unique Nautical Themed Gifts For Travelers

In the same spirit as the holiday gift guide published last week, this list contains 16 unique ideas for nautical themed gifts that would be perfect for friends or loved ones who are captivated by the sea.

Lots of the ideas you'll find below are handmade items on the lower end of the price scale, with a few being more splurge-worthy. Again, I've tried to focus more on things that you or your loved ones will actually be able to get some use out of, but of course there are also a few ideas that I thought were too sweet to leave out. Bon voyage!

#1. Some Sea Animals of the Gulf Coast Art Print // "This bright tangerine orange print focuses on the fauna of the Gulf Coast, a unique and distinct eco system wrapping around the southern and south eastern United States." Be sure to also check out these Atlantic and Pacific sea animal prints!

#2. Octopus Tentacles Coffee Mug // A ceramic octopus coffee mug is perfect as a stocking stuffer for anyone enthralled by the legends of mythical monsters from the deep seas.

#3. Ahoy Pillow // This colorful nautical pillow to brighten up your home and bring your love for the ocean inside. Anchors aweigh!

#4. USS Constitution Revell Kit // An intricate model kit for those blessed with great patience and an affinity towards ships or shipbuilding. Building a model ship would be a fantastic way to spend the cold winter months when many of us are inside much of the time anyways.


#5. Hand Engraved Compass // A special brass engraved compass (that actually works!) with a custom message for your friend or significant other. 

#6. Little Ship of Fools: Sixteen Rowers, One Improbable Boat, Seven Tumultuous Weeks on the Atlantic by Charles Wilkins // A true story and certainly an adventurous read about a rowboat expedition that crossed the Atlantic Ocean. 

#7. Striped Organic Triangle Bra Lingerie Set // Fashionable in black and white stripes reminiscent of sailors, this modern underwear set is bound to keep you comfy. Made in the USA from super soft organic cotton.

#8. Blue Planet II: A New World of Hidden Depths by James Honeyborne and Mark Brownlow // This hardcover book features 300 images from the acclaimed BBC series of the same name. You'll find it covers some of the world's most colorful coral reefs to icy Arctic waters and everything in between.


#9. Bushnell PowerView Super High-Powered Surveillance Binoculars // Land ho! Durable, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive, these binoculars are perfect for bird or whale watching. 

#10. Nautical Cosmetic Bag // A lovely little nautical inspired cosmetic or toiletry bag that's just right for storing your things.

#11. Earth Pak Waterproof Dry Bag // Whether you're surfing, kayaking, boating, or relaxing on the beach, these waterproof bags are meant to last for years and keep your belongings completely dry. Bonus: each bag also come with a waterproof phone case!

#12. Everlane The Silk Wide Leg Pant //  It's easy to be comfortable and look polished while you're on the go with a classic wide-leg silhouette pant in drapey, striped silk with an elastic waistband. Made ethically in China.


#13. Sterling Silver Anchor Necklace // This handmade sterling silver anchor necklace is a sweet gift for those who want to keep the ocean close to their heart at all times.

#14. Snorkel Mask // Perhaps it looks a little funny, but this panoramic full-face snorkel mask is light years ahead of the masks that only cover your eyes and nose. This one comes with anti-fog technology and completely bypasses the gag reflex normally associated with having a snorkel in your mouth, making it easier to enjoy discovering underwater worlds.

#15. Nautical Sailor & Mermaid Journal // A journal tailor made for daydreaming of the sea. 

#16. GoPro HERO 6 Black // Want to document your beach vacation or river rafting excursion? Then the GoPro HERO 6 is the right camera for you! With extraordinary video and photo capabilities, waterproof up to 10 meters, and one of the smallest and lightest cameras out there, this has you covered for all your travel needs.
