If your father loves the outdoors, and especially boating, then consider these great Father’s Day gifts for the dad who loves sailing.
If your dad isn't lucky enough to own his own sailboat, then rent one out for a few hours so your dad can take a spin. If cost is an issue, get other family members to chip in and make it a group outing. Start with lunch on the marina and then surprise your dad with his very own cruise around the bay. It will be an afternoon he'll never forget.
Most guys love their gadgets, so why not find one that also taps into your dad's love of sailing? GPS devices, waterproof sailing watches and marine binoculars are popular gifts, as are digital compasses, waterproof socks and gear used to maintain the sailboat.
Help keep the thrill of the sea alive even away from the boat by framing a picture to remind your dad of one of his favorite adventures. Photo ideas include a picture of his favorite boat, a snapshot from his first sailing trip with his own father or a family portrait taken during a recent sailing vacation. Make sure the photo is high quality and that the frame will match your dad's home or business decor.
Help to keep your dad up to date on the world of sailing by buying him a year's subscription to a sailing magazine. There are many different publications available, including Sailing Magazine, SAIL Magazine and Cruising World Magazine, so you're sure to find one that will pique your dad's interests. Take a look at the magazines at a local bookstore before you purchase a subscription to make sure your selection is a good fit.
Father's Day is just around the corner, so it's time to start thinking about what to get dad on his big day.
