With Christmas just around the corner, you’re probably rushing to find the perfect gift. Here are some thoughtful and affordable gift ideas for people who love scuba diving and the ocean.
Holiday gift suggestions for diving enthusiasts
1.) Customizable Diving Log – This is an ideal gift for newbie divers and even advanced divers. You can use it to keep track of your underwater adventures. There are customizable diving logs that enable you to design your front cover and add multiple images.
2.) Underwater slate – An underwater slate is another nice gift for a beginner. It comes in handy for underwater communication because it allows the diver to scribble notes, draw a map, or even jot a funny message.
3.) Tank Banger – This simple tool can be very useful when you need to get the attention of your dive buddy or another diver underwater. The elastic band makes it easy to stretch and slip over your scuba tank.
4.) Dive torch – A dive torch is a great gift for divers; especially for beginners who do not have their own equipment yet. Recreational divers can use it during day time to shine light through holes in the reef and under overhangs. A dive torch also illuminates your way during night scuba diving UAE.
5.) Underwater tactical knife – A dive knife is another great Christmas gift idea for a scuba diver. This tool can be used to cut fishing nets that have become entangled around marine life. You can also use a dive knife to knock on your tank to get a fellow diver’s attention. It is not used as a weapon to harm underwater life or damage the marine environment.
6.) Waterproof Dry Bag – It’s a nice and affordable gift for any scuba diver because you can put your dry or wet clothes inside. It can also keep electronics protected from wet conditions. A waterproof dry bag is versatile because you can also use it for trekking, camping, and other sports.
7.) Towel Poncho – A towel poncho will help keep you dry and warm when you get out of the water. It can serve as a warming blanket to shield you from the sea breeze while you sail back to the shore after deep sea diving Dubai. You can also wear a towel poncho while strolling along the beach.
8.) Reusable Water Bottle and Reusable Straw – Only a fraction of water bottles are recycled while countless others end up in landfills every year. These discarded water bottles find their way to the ocean which can threaten marine life. Support marine conservation by giving a reusable water bottle for Christmas. Another eco-friendly and affordable Christmas gift is a reusable straw. Single-use straws are environmental hazards because they end up in landfills and into our oceans. They can harm marine life such as fish, turtles, dolphins, and even sea birds. A plastic straw can get lodged in creatures’ noses and throats. When exposed to sunlight, wind, waves, and other natural elements, these plastic straws break down into tiny pieces and turn to “microplastics”, which are ingested by living things, including humans.
9.) Reef-safe Sunscreen – Show your love for the ocean by giving a reef-friendly sunscreen. It does not contain harsh chemicals such as parabens, benzophenones, parabens, and other skin irritants that can harm marine life.
10.) PADI Dive Course – If you’re feeling generous, what better present to give a scuba diver than a dive course? If your family or friend has not dived in over six months, a ReActivate Scuba Refresher would make a great gift to rekindle the person’s love for the underwater world. You can also consider giving a Specialty Course to enhance the recipient’s knowledge and skills in diving.
We hope these gift ideas will help you find the perfect Christmas present for your family, friend, or colleague who loves exploring the sea. Happy Holidays!
