Heading for shore at full speed ahead is Christmas, and before we know it the big day will be here. We know how difficult it can be trying to find a suitable present for a sailor, that's both unique and something that relates to their favourite hobby. Hours can be spent trawling the high street with little reward, so being home to all things nautical and the first port of call for all seafarers we've done the hard work for you and have put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas for the yachtsman in your life.

Paper Charts

Sea Chest carries a full stock of up to date Admiralty charts and having a whole host of sailing enthusiasts at the helm of Sea Chest we all have at least one sailing trip in the pipe line! With this in mind our paper charts make excellent stocking filler ideas, perhaps even a hint as to where you'd like to be taken to next! Covering all areas of the world we're sure there's one route that will whet your appetite! You can view our extensive range of paper charts here.


Plotting Instruments

With paper charts in mind, you'll find it pretty hard to navigate your way around one without the necessary chart plotting instruments. These make great extra stocking fillers that are practical and efficient, we have a range of finely crafted course plotters, dividers and pencils to help you plot and plan your next trip with ease!


Emma Ball

For something coastal themed with a novelty factor, we love these Emma Ball greeting cards, tea towels and calendars from her range. Featuring her stunning watercolour designs & artwork these make fantastic gifts for those who are fond of the seaside and appreciate her colourful coastal designs. A great selection of gifts to keep your yachtsman grounded! You can view our full range of Emma Ball products here.




Colouring Books

For those days where the weathers like pea soup and it's too dangerous to venture out you need to have enough onshore activities to pass the time away! Adult colouring books have become hugely popular in the last year and for good reason to! You can while your time away easily with these books and they provide a therapeutic escape from the realities of life. For the sailor at heart we would definitely recommend Lost ocean which takes the reader on an enchanting underwater adventure! For a limited time too with every purchase of a colouring book you will receive a FREE packet of colouring pencils!


Ocean: A Photicular Book

One of the latest additions to Seachest's range of nautical books, is this extraordinary book that will introduce you to the world of photicular technology! The end result is like a movie in your hands and it will provide a bit of fun throughout your sailing journeys!


Whatever type of present you're after for your seafarer you'll find something appropriate and fun that they'll love! You're' a few clicks away from purchasing the ideal present and from the comfort of your own home!
