Last Minute Father's Day Gift Guide

Who sparked your lifelong interest in boating? If it was your father, this is a great time to say thanks for introducing you to something you enjoy so much.

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 19TH. With this weekend fast approaching, and with so many of our readers being from boating families, we thought we'd share some last minute boating gift ideas from our friends at Boat Name Gear.

Order By Noon on Tuesday
There are a few custom items you can still get if you order from them right now, before noon on Tuesday, and choose their express shipping option, including:

A Personalized Boat Name Polo Shirt
BoatNameGear will custom stitch two lines of text, perhaps your dad's boat name and hailing port, to the left-chest of these 100% cotton polo shirts in the color and font of your choice. Get It Now

A Personalized Boat Name Tee-Shirt
Just like the polo shirt, but it's a tee-shirt... No collar, no buttons, no worries. It's the perfect shirt for relaxing on the boat or off. Get It Now

Order By Noon on Wednesday
Need more time? There are a few less-custom items you can still get if you wait as late as noon on Wednesday, and choose their express shipping option, including:

A Generic Boarding Mat
Dad will love these generic welcome mats, available with one of two messages, Welcome Aboard or Please Remove Shoes. Both mats welcome people aboard the boat, but at the same time they remind guests that they're about to enter a place that's very special to someone.

The Captain Polo Shirt
This is the shirt that started it all at Boat Name Gear, and still one of their most popular items. A simple white polo shirt, with "Captain" embroidered on the left chest in dark blue lettering. More info


Gift Certificates - Order ANY Time
Maybe you should just let Dad pick out his own personalized items so he can get exactly what he wants but wouldn't normally buy for himself - bath towels for the boat, a comfy robe, a personalized boarding mat... you never know! Our gift certificates are emailed instantly when you order them, to yourself or to your gift recipient. Get one now
