Best Holiday Gifts for Boaters on Lake Hopatcong

November 30, 2012

Looking for the perfect gift for the boater in your life?  Look no further.  Here are ten of Bridge Marina’s favorite gift ideas this year for boaters, just in time for the holidays!


Sunglasses 

A good, polarized pair is a must when you’re boating on Lake Hopatcong.  Check out Maui Jim’s extensive line up of shades.


A Gift Certificate from a favorite Lake Hopatcong Restaurant

Whether it’s the Windlass, the Jefferson House, Alice’s or elsewhere… a gift certificate’s a great way to give the boater in your life something to look forward to next year (or provides an opportunity to enjoy some winter views of Lake Hopatcong!).


An instructional “How To” Book

From simple safety to complex handling procedures, a good instructional “how to” book will help the captain in your life feel more comfortable at the helm and have more fun on the water.  We like Robert Sweet’s “Power Boat Handling Illustrated: How to Make Your Boat Do Exactly What You Want it to Do,” available on Amazon.com.

 

Nautical Serving Tray

For those who love to entertain dockside (or at home), we thought the “Cleat Serving Board with Compass” from Uncommon Goods, handcrafted to look like a dock with cleats as handles, was a perfect way to serve up cheese and crackers. 


Nautical themed bottle opener

A perfect gift for the entertainer as well, Orange and Pear offers a clever little rope bottle opener and cork pull.


A new towable or tube

What a great gift to find under the tree for kids or the kid at heart! Plus you can “try them out” in the snow. Bridge Marina’s end of season sale continues at its marine store, with 30% off its entire inventory of tubes.


A personalized canvas tote

Land’s End offers the classic canvas tote in a good variety of sizes, colors, and styles to carry gear, snacks and more. 


A gift of Lake Hopatcong history

From Christmas tree ornaments to beautiful books highlighting the lake’s eclectic history, the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum has a number of great gifts for the Lake Hopatcong lover in your life.  Check out www.lakehopatconghistory.com/museum-offers.htm.


Shammy or other cleaning products

A shammy is great for drying off the boat or cleaning up small spills around the boat. These make great stocking stuffers and are available at Bridge Marina’s marine store.

Waterproof case

A waterproof iPhone or iPad case would be ideal for the technologically savvy Lake Hopatcong boater in your life.  We’ve tested LifeProof’s cases a few times at the marina.

Bridge Marina is happy to help with any other suggestions or service needs for boaters.  Please contact us at info@bridgemarina.com or 663-1976.  Happy Holidays!
