Holiday Gift Ideas for Sailors

If you think your sailor is going to sleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads this holiday season, you should pay closer attention to our holiday gift ideas from APS! Here are 4 more for you:

Looking for a purse but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on one of the high-end fashion brands? How about a unique bag made just for the gal who loves to show off her love for sport and utility?  The Harken Sailcloth Purse is the perfect size and comes in 3 different styles. It’s the ideal bag for everything from shopping trips to tent parties, and you can’t beat the price!
Looking for a gift for your skipper? The Gill Helmsman Gloves are the just the thing. These gloves are waterproof and insulated, and they offer enough grip and dexterity to keep your driver’s hands on the tiller (or wheel) all winter long. These gloves also offer adjustable wrist cuffs for a better fit, and a drawstring closure to help keep the elements out. I might even wear these skiing this season!

Do you have a sailor in need of a high-performance, fully-waterproof sailing jacket? The Musto MPX Race Jacket tops this category. With Gore-Tex® fabric and an athletic cut, this jacket will protect from the elements while not hindering performance. I consider the Musto MPX line to be the best in its class, so this is where you want to look if you know someone who could use truly waterproof yet breathable gear (and if you want to be their favorite person for, uh, eternity.)

Lastly, looking for something inexpensive but cool? Our APS Camo Trucker Hat is probably the raddest APS branded item we offer. Your crew wants it, your kid wants it, your friends want it, you want it, Santa Claus wants it … pretty much everyone wants it. Heck, I have one, and now I want another! Snag it [here].

Well, that is all the advice I have today from down here in APS-ville. Happy holidays and sail fast into the new year!
