They're probably the hardest the shop for. The ones who make you question your decision, not once but twice. The one who you always get a gift receipt for. The one you hold your breathe for while they unwrap the gift you got them. You know who I'm talking about - the one who has it all. Whether they're a sailor (racer or cruiser), paddler or angler, they're still hard to shop for when they have it all.
"They have everything."
"They just buy it themselves."
"They own half the store."
"Oh I don't know..Don't they have that?....I'll just get them a gift card!"
Some of the most common phrases murmured at Fogh when shopping for that tricky someone. Well I'm about to make shopping for that particular bunch, hopefully, a bit easier with a gift guide on what to get the one who has it all. And, well, if it doesn't help then may the force be with you in finding something (or go the gift card route).
Just a little touch of nautical style. No home is complete without it. I mean really, how much more nautical can you get besides anchor print and blue & white stripes.
Price varies according to size.
They may claim they have one or many but chances are they're probably lost somewhere never to be found again; or it's only attached to one specific hat. Having a hat clip that is not permanently attached to a cap, allows them versatility in what cap they wear - tilly vs. traditional or visor vs. ball cap.
If they're water people then chances are they've heard of Zblok or at least know that zinc is one of the most popular forms of sun protection for when out on the water. Why? It doesn't burn your eyes, it's not greasy and it works. So why gift it for the one who has it all? Well besides the fact that it works (even if you burn easily), you can never have too much sun block! Besides it's is the perfect size to throw in a drybag or PFD pocket (if you get the stick version).
Also available in a stick.
Splicing yourself or at least knowing the very basics is becoming a thing of the past. But we still think it never hurts to know the very basics. The D-Splicer Kit is an awesome kit for the rookie or the pro, especially those who use smaller diameter line as it's ideal to use with line less than 4mm. Plus the storage tube keeps everything together when it's not being used!
Perfect for home, cottage or boat. The Joi Light consists of eight bright LED lights that are powered by a single tea light candle. Seriously, no power cord or batteries required - the small tea light powers all the LED lights.
Pretty snazzy right?
