Over 30 Gift Ideas for Water Enthusiasts 

Living the Florida lifestyle means being surrounded by waterways and adventures. There is so much excitement and freedom on the water, from multi-day kayaking trips and jetski journeys to wandering on a paddleboard on beautiful freshwater springs. Exploring Florida's pristine waterways never gets boring. Even the simplicity of swimming can be refreshing and relaxing.

If you love the water or know someone who does, I'm here to help you explore ideas to make gift shopping easier. That water enthusiast in your life might be the easiest person to shop for. So, let's paddle out and bag your favorite gifts. Here's my gift guide this year:

INFLATABLE PADDLE BOARD

An inflatable stand-up paddle board is affordable and practical. You can carry this in the trunk of your car, and it's relatively easy to set up. You could also search nearby to see if any paddleboard rentals are available, but if you plan to be on the water often, this is a better option financially in the long run. The difference between the inflatable and hardboard is the ease of transportation and technical attributes. I prefer hardboard but utilize inflatables for backpacking and when I need a compact option.

MEDICAL KIT

It's imperative to bring a first aid kit on your trips. This kit is compact and includes the essentials. If you cut yourself while on the water, clean and bandage it immediately while making the best effort to keep any open wounds out of waterways.
