Birthday gifts are easy to buy for people if they tell you what they want in advance, or they drop not-so-subtle hints to family and friends. But what happens if you need to get a birthday present for someone that seldom alludes to what they’d like?
Well, if you know the person in question enjoys spending time on the water in their spare time, it can help you with your quest. With that in mind, here are a few inspirational birthday gift ideas for water sport lovers that enjoy having fun while they keep fit on (or in) the water:
1. Surfboard Wax and Remover
Is the water sports lover in your life someone that enjoys grabbing a surfboard, heading to the coast, and hitting the waves? If so, the good news is there are many gifts you can get them. But what are the best gift ideas?
It’s probably best to avoid things like surfboards as they are very individual choices. However, you could always get them some things to look after their surfboards, such as surfboard wax and remover.
2. Kitesurfing T-Shirt
There are many places to go kitesurfing in the UK, making it one of the country’s most popular sports. Kitesurfing is something you can enjoy on land, but it’s equally as fun on the water.
Some kitesurfers might go on land or in the water, depending on where they feel like going at the time. One kitesurfing gift idea that’s both great and useful for land or water is a t-shirt!
3. Neoprene Paddling Gloves
Does the person in your life enjoy kayaking in their spare time? You might not know it, but around 146,000 people each year go paddling in a kayak. Many water sport enthusiasts go kayaking in canals, lakes, and on the coast.
Something that avid kayakers use all the time – and need – are neoprene paddling gloves. They’re durable gloves that make paddling so much easier, and they keep hands warm at all times.
4. SUP Shoes
SUP or “stand-up paddleboarding” is a water sport you might associate with sunnier climes, but it’s something that has grown in popularity in the UK over the years. It’s a fun pastime that involves a lot of exercise but keeps paddleboarders fit and healthy!
One gift idea for the SUP enthusiast in your life is some specially-designed SUP shoes. They are high-grip and versatile shoes with a full drainage system, with some even having a built-in heating system!
5. Seven-Layer Protection Sunglasses
One final gift idea for anyone that spends their time on the water, regardless of the time of year, is a pair of sunglasses. But not just any ones: the water sports enthusiast in your life will need ones that offer seven layers of protection.
As you can imagine, it’s crucial to have good UV (ultraviolet) protection from the sun when you’re spending a lot of time on the water. Sunglasses that offer multiple layers of protection are ideal for water sports enthusiasts.
