Holiday Gift Ideas for Boat Lovers

The season for gift-giving is right around the corner.  Even if you aren't an early shopper, part of you knows that it's time to start thinking about the gifts you will be purchasing.  The best boat rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks tends to lean towards gifts that revolve around boating.  How can we help it? It's our favorite thing!  

We know there are a lot of people out there that love boating as much as we do.  If you know a boat lover, (don't worry, they will make it obvious) BomBay Boat Rental Company has a few great gift ideas for them.  If you are the boat lover, get out your pen and paper and start adding these to your own wish list.  

You can never have enough towels on a boat.  You're in the middle of a large body of water, so things are bound to get wet.  Get your favorite boat lover their own set of absorbent towels in their favorite color.  You can even find some great nautical themed towels once you start looking.  

Beach Bags
Along with towels, there are lots of items to take with you for an awesome day out on the water.  A great big tote bag to throw all of those things in is a wonderful gift.  Everything you need in one easy-to-access spot together.      

These are another necessity on the water that it's wise to keep more than one of on hand.  Sunglasses are small items that often end up in the water, left behind, or sat on.  Having a backup or two saves you from squinting for the rest of your boat trip.  The polarized kind are best for cutting the sunny glare from the water. 

Nautical Blanket
Late into the fall and early in the Spring, boat lovers will be itching to get back out on the Lake.  A great big blanket to cuddle under on those chilly trips is a great gift idea.  

Dry Cases
Wallets and cell phones are a couple of items that you want to stay as dry as possible while you are out boating.  You can find a variety of waterproof cases and bags for many different needs.  These will keep the important stuff dry and safe.      

Tubes & Floats
It will be next summer before these get much use in this particular area, but an active boater that loves getting off of the boat and into the water will be thrilled to receive these as a gift.  

Those hot days out on the Lake are a lot easier to take when you have a cooler full of refreshing drinks.  Small coolers are great for short trips and easy to carry.  Large coolers can hold both your drinks and a nice picnic lunch.  

Boat-Themed Clothing
Shirts, jackets, hats, socks... this list can go on and on.  A true boat lover will proudly wear all of these clothing items when they go out.  It's a great boating conversation starter!

Wall Art
To help your boating friend keep their favorite hobby front and center in their home or office, pick them up a piece of art featuring a great saying or cool picture of the water.  If they own a vacation home near the lake, this is a great gift for them to furnish it with.  

Magazine Subscription
Boating magazines are perfect for keeping up-to-date with the latest products and trends.  They are also filled with helpful tips and information.  Bonus- this gift will keep coming to them every month.  

Aerial Photo of a Favorite Lake
If your friend has a special body of water that they frequent,  like our very own Lake of the Ozarks, an aerial photo showing the entire thing is really cool.  They will be able to see all of their favorite coves at once.  

Gift Certificates
There are lots of waterfront bars and restaurants all around the Lake of the Ozarks, and people usually have places that they simply have to stop at every time they got out.  A gift certificate is a great way to treat them to one of their favorite places the next time they are out on the boat.   

Boat Rental Membership
Renting a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks allows you all of the fun of being out on the water without all of the work involved with storing, cleaning, and transporting a boat of your own.  BomBay Boat Rental Company offers both boat memberships and wave runner memberships that can be used at any of our locations.  They come in a Weekday Plan, 7-day Plan, and a Family or Shared plan.  A boater gets the joy of 6 months of boat rentals, April through September.   

If you are buying gifts for anyone living near the Lake of the Ozarks, then you most likely have a boat lover in that group.  Hopefully this list will help to make your shopping this season a little easier.  You should definitely join them out on the water.  You are sure to be a boat lover too by the end of the trip.  Then we'll expect to be seeing a lot of you at BomBay Boat Rental Company.
