Fun Nautical Gifts We Want In 2017

As each year passes in our wake, we’re building quite a collection of holiday gift guides. Last year, we introduced a new category to the family with our 2016 fun nautical gift guide, featuring a few unexpected gifts for the nautically minded.

Ugly Shark And Santa Sweater

Ugly Ocean Shark Sweater

For certain people the holiday season does not start with Thanksgiving meal, or the playing of Holiday Music, or catching sight of the first winter snowflake… it starts with pulling a really ugly holiday sweater over there heads.  For those who enjoy ugly sweaters, value comfy warmth and have a love for the ocean there is nothing better than the Santa Shark Ugly Christmas Sweater! ($69 via Amazon)

(A less nautical – but really cool – ugly sweater option is the DigitalDudz “Crackling Fireplace” Christmas Sweater!)
