Gift Ideas for Every Kayaker
For a kayaker that is just getting started or building out their set-up, check out Gear Talk: What we Use in our NC Kayaks, where we shared info about our favorite gear. This is what we carry every time we hit the water, but some of these items took some time to add to our collection.
For the kayak camper, Kayak Camping (a journey of our journeys) walks through our changing set-up over the years. We included some thoughts on packing for mileage or luxury to help you pinpoint the type of kayak camping for your kayaker. If kayak glamping is more in line with your gift ideas, Our Kayak Glamping Set-up will help you find some great options for a luxury kayak camping set-up.
Of course, we always think a custom kayak is the perfect gift – we even have solved the problem of how to wrap it. Your kayaker can select their perfect design after you surprise them with a kayak under the tree. With our extended #GivingTuesday, we’re donating 10% of proceeds from all kayaks ordered now through December 29.
Did you know that you can get a Christmas Ornament upcycled from custom NC Kayak scraps? As part of our manufacturing process, we have several square feet of scrap fiberglass with each kayak we make. These scraps are in the same beautiful array of colors and finishes as the custom kayaks we create. One day, we realized we could upcycle these scraps into Christmas ornaments. The results are perfect gifts for the kayaker on your list and lovely additions to any Christmas tree. You can find them in our North Coast Kayaks Etsy shop.
