11 Holiday Gift Ideas for that Special Boater in Your Life

Your friend Billie lives on a boat and after days of on-line and store-to-store shopping, you finally found the perfect gift. At last years holiday gathering, you anxiously watched Billie unwrap the 18″x24″ abstract painting that you thought would fit perfectly on wall of Billie’s boat.  Billie was elated, but when October and November rolled around the painting was nowhere to be found. Before you know it, another year has gone by and you have to restart the painful process of finding that perfect gift for Billie.

So where do you start? Here’s a starter list that will cover a range of budgets, boating lifestyles and tastes. If you have more ideas to add to the list, please feel free to do so.
