Mothers Day Gift Ideas for Moms who Love Boating


It's that time of the year again when we celebrate that important woman in our lives -- our mothers! Mother's Day is on May 11 and if you don't already have a gift for her, here are a few nautical-inspired gifts for the mom who loves boating! 

Sailing Lessons

Nothing compares to getting out on the water and feeling the breeze while onboard a sailboat. For mothers who want to learn how to sail, sailing lessons are a great gift idea! If your mother is a pro, consider renting out a sailboat for the day or reserving a weekend for her to sail her heart away. 

Great Lakes Cruise

The Great Lakes have a bounty of cruises available for the mother who loves being on the water. Many of these cruises offer sightseeing, sunset and even lighthouse cruises. Check out Keweenaw Excursions, Great Lakes Cruising or Pearl Sea Cruises

Take her Fishing

What better way to say "I love you" than taking your mother on a fishing excursion. Not only will you have time to relax and enjoy each others company, but you also might reel in the "big one"! If your mom is really into fishing, consider gifting her a new fishing pole.

Waterproof watch

A watch is always a classy gift to give, but for the mothers who enjoy being on water, the hassle of taking off your watch before each dip into the lake may become annoying. Gifting mom a waterproof watch is the perfect way to say thank you. 


For the adventurous mothers who like to partake in a little exercise while boating, inflatable kayaks are a great gift idea! Inflatables such as Intex, Sea Eagle and West Marine Scamper offer great kayaks for mom, at a reasonable price.
