Best Gifts for Kayakers
Looking for a gift for your favorite kayaker? I’ve compiled a list of 10 gifts that any kayaker would want. Be sure to scroll all the way to the number 10, it’s going to blow your mind.
Cambond Waterproof Phone Pouch — This little guy is pretty clever. It lets you bring your phone on the water, keeps it dry, has an anti-break lanyard and acts as a floatie for your phone.
Kayak Handles — This might not seem as sexy as some of the other gifts on this list, but having one kayak handle break is a real drag….literally. Any avid kayaker would love to have a couple extras on hand just in case.
Bonnlo Kayak Cart — Hauling kayaks around is easier with two people, but for times you’re heading out on your own this carrier will get your kayak to the water quick and easy. The wheels are no-flat airless tires so you’re never have to worry about pumping them up and it easily carries a single or double kayak.
Campark ACT74 Action Camera — With a 2 inch HD screen, WIFI remote control and super 4K recording this little guy packs a punch. You can even add additional acessories to mount it on your kayak or if you’re entering white water your helmet.
NRS Ultra Light Paddler Medical Kit — It’s always good to be prepared, even when you’re out on the water. This little guy is small, lightweight and compact. The bag is made from tough ripstop nylon and it has a HydroLock zip seal to keep your supplies dry.
Astral Layla Women’s Life Jacket PFD — I know what you’re thinking….a “women’s life jacket”? Seriously though this is a GREAT life jacket. It’s women’s because they actually take into account your bust size! No more feeling like you can’t breath! Trust me it’s a winner.
Unsinkable Polarized Women’s Karma Sunglasses — I have lost more than one pair of sunglasses to the ocean. It stinks. I feel bad that my plastic sunglasses are in there and my eyes can’t really take the blaring sun. BUT no more! These babies float! Meaning if they fly off your face you can paddle over and retrieve them.
Werner Sho-Gun 1 PC Straight Shaft Paddle — I LOVE this paddle. Back when I lived in MA I helped lead kayak tours around Salem. This paddle is super lightweight and very comfortable….but with those two characteristics comes price. If the carbon fiber paddle is a little too much this Bending Branches Whisper Paddle is pretty good (but heavier).
See-it-safe Sport Case — This case makes a great stocking suffer or small gift for a new paddler. It holds your money, ID, credit cards, keys or any other items you need to keep dry when you’re out on the water.
Oru Kayak Beach LT Folding Portable Lightweight Kayak — I’m a little obsessed with this thing. It’s like a giant piece of origami! It’s a kayak that folds up and can be carried in a bag on your shoulder. It’s amazing! At the very least you should click through to see the other photos….and possibly watch a video.
