*I have personal experience with some of these products and companies, but others are merely neat ideas I found online. None of these are paid endorsements. Add your positive and considerate thoughts to the comments section.
Let's get right to it. Here are some of my favorite Submarine themed gift ideas for the year. You can skip my comments and see the whole list on my Pinterest Board Here. I'll be adding to this board so check back if you need more ideas! Also feel free to help me out and add your ideas to the comments at the bottom. Here we go....
We played this with a group of submariners and their wives. It was epic. Basically it's like battleship on steroids. Great for groups of six or eight. Pairs well with a fruity white or an IPA. ;)
If you haven't checked out 16 Submarines yet, you need to! Operated by a Submariner family in Washington State, they have some great items, like these swanky gold cufflinks.
I'm a notebook junky, and I love to give fun notebooks and pencils as gifts, especially to school aged kids. You never know what you'll inspire. Pottery barn also has some cute submarine PJs.
I'm a little biased because I designed these, but Lauren (a fellow sub wife) does a great job with these cute magnetic wine charms. A unique and simple gift for the sub wino in your life.
While you have your cute wine charms (above) you need glasses too! I've never seen any of her products in person, but she has great reviews on etsy. She has lot's of fun nautical designs too.
Books make great gifts, and this one is particularly sweet. Written by a submariner's wife and illustrating life aboard a sub for kids to understand.
I couldn't help it. I know it's nothing new, but I love this SO MUCH.
One of our favorite submarine gifts in our shop this year is our embroidered kitchen towels. Available as a set or as singles. Great for hostess gifts, your mom-in-law, neighbors, your deployment wife, etc.
A great stocking stuffer for your submariner! My husband has one of these and he uses it all the time. I stole it to open the zillion boxes we had to unpack after our recent PCS.
The cutest submarine baby gift ever! A useful, simple toy, from a great company.
While we are shopping for baby, how about the cutest baby booties hand made by an awesome submariner's wife. Available in lots of colors with soft furry insides. Your baby's piggies will thank you.
We don't have one of these, but It looks stunning. Would be beautiful on a mantel! If you have one of these, comment below so we can have a first hand account.
We love our fleece submarine blankets. Available in several colors (including a christmas blanket) and several sizes. These blankets are unbelievably soft. Hands down our favorite gift in our shop this year.
OMG. It's a dolphin wine caddy people. I wonder if my husband will read this?? Hint Hint.
I stumbled upon this on Etsy by accident, and I'm so glad I did. So beautiful! Submariners, this is what you need to get your wife/girlfriend. You are welcome. She has some really beautiful creations in her shop, all are worth a look!
Great stocking stuffers!! Who doesn't love crazy submarine socks at the holidays!
Do we have any Disney fans out there? I found several vintage copies of this Tomorrowland poster available online. This would look amazing in a game room, kids room or even a bathroom!
Our scarves are always a best seller around the holidays. Mom-in-laws love them, just sayin'. Oh, and they are fun for holiday parties as well.
I haven't smelled this soap, but I am assured is NOT a combo of amine, grease, body odor and baked bread. Several friends have raved about this so It was a no brainer for this list.
I'm a sucker for vintage handkerchiefs, and this Irish linen pocket beauty is too lovely to pass up.
With a wide range of designs, we've got your tea/coffee drinker in the family covered.
These look like designer collars fit for any super spoiled submariner's pup!
If you haven't already purchased a piece by Katie this year, chances are you are way too late now, but I have to include her in this list because her artwork is so lovely, inspiring and unique, and her hand made cribbage boards are truly works of art. Check out her Facebook page and maybe you'll have a shot at a piece next year.
You just can't have a submarine gift list without FishGill Designs! Check out their Facebook page to order, or check your local Dolphin Store. These ladies are the best!
And Don't forget to check out your local Dolphin Store, if you are in Groton, Norfolk, Kings Bay, Bangor or Pearl! Support your submarine community and shop local!
