Last-minute Christmas gift ideas for the sailor in your life

Updated: Feb 25, 2020

If you always shop online and you haven’t yet finished your festive gift shopping, perhaps in the hope of snapping up some great late deals, now is the time to place your final orders to ensure that they actually arrive in time for Christmas.

The Sun has usefully produced a round-up of this year’s last order dates for the leading online stores, but if you’re trying to pick a gift for someone who has previously made use of our yacht charter agency in the UK, what items would we recommend?

It isn’t necessarily hard to grab a great late gift

Here at Sail Puppy, we are keen sailors ourselves, and would like to think that most of us aren’t too fussy!

The truth is that there are many items that the typical user of our yacht charter agency in the UK is likely to appreciate seeing under their tree. They range from yachting-themed books and videos and bags such as a new kit bag or rucksack, right through to suitable sailing clothing like a hat or gloves, or even boat bits along the lines of blocks, winches and wind indicators.

But what specific items do we like the look of?

Yachting World recently compiled a ranking of some of the sailor-suitable festive gifts that they most liked, and it’s fair to say that it contains many of our favourites, too. They include the likes of Henri Lloyd neoprene gloves that incorporate a grippy surface on the palms, as well as the clever portable Garmin inReach that enables sailors to keep their friends and family up-to-date on their location.

We also liked the look of such options as the Lifedge Ultimate cable that is corrosion and tangle-free proofed for effective waterproof phone charging, the SOG Multitool with a proper blade, the GoCycle portable E-bike and – of course – a subscription to Yachting World itself. The latter is priced from as little as £19.49 a year, or £16.49 in the case of the

digital issues for the iPad or iPhone.

There’s no need to choose any other yacht charter company in the UK

Alternatively, of course, you may be reading this as a keen sailor yourself, in which case, you may just want to buy yourself a fitting Christmas gift, in the form of a thrilling but also affordable yachting break, from a company that you can trust.

As an experienced but also truly independent company, here at Sail Puppy, we know all of the ingredients that help to make for great yachting holidays, and are well-placed to assemble the ideal winter break for you.
