Let the shopping begin!
Many a dive has been aborted because of a damaged O-ring. Not anymore with this handy save a dive O-ring kit. It comes with 12 O-rings in various sizes and a pick for easy installation. Small and compact but oh so useful. Add it to your keys or attach it to your dive bag so you never have to cancel of dive because of a blown O-ring.
This is a nice handy reference for identifying those fish they just saw on a dive. This guide covers 78 species of the most common fish in Florida, Bermuda, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Made of waterproof plastic so it will be nice and durable on the dive/snorkel boat. Lightweight and easy to pack so it is perfect to take along on a dive trip.
Keep your diver nice and toasty on and off that dive boat. Nice looking shark dive flag lets everyone know what sport they love. And just thinking of tropical diving can give a warm feeling to any diver. One size fits all for this scuba diving gift.
As every diver knows, safety is the #1 priority on any dive. This safety whistle is a lightweight and easy device to bring along but goes a long way in the safety department. If someone ever finds themselves surfacing a long way from the dive boat, this whistle can be used to attract the attention of the people on the boat. Just clip it on a BC to always have it on hand and at the ready. A very practical and meaningful scuba diving gift.
Salt water/air can wreak havoc on the zippers of those wetsuits, drysuits and dive bags. This easy to use zipper lubricant will have those zippers sliding up nice and easily for many dives to come. It comes with a brush to help brush away any dirt or salt deposits stuck in the teeth of the zipper. Once clean, use this lubricant for an easy pulling zipper. Works on metal, plastic and nylon zippers. No more tugging on that dive boat.
Give your scuba diver a special place on the tree each year (or on the ceiling fan pull, etc.). A cute ornament with the diver and 2 colorful fish. Hand painted and made of resin. Available in female diver and male diver versions - a scuba diving gift for both sexes.
I thinks these look so cool. Don't get confused by all those bags - and luggage tags - looking alike anymore. Add these unique tags and your luggage will stand out. Comes in a set of 2 and has leather straps for long lasting wear. Lots of different colors and graphics available.
While we are talking about travel, here is a great idea for both the plane and the dive boat. This collapsible water bottle rolls up when not in use to save that precious space in your bag. We know how important it is to stay hydrated, especially when diving. This bottle comes with two leakproof lids, a one touch and a twist cap. (Disclosure: This is our product which we manufacture).Click here for the Collapsible Water Bottle
Bring your diver back to the underwater world every time they use the phone. This iphone case cover is vibrant and beautiful. Who wouldn't want to look at this every day? It also lets the world know what your diver is passionate about. This case is slim and lightweight.
I (heart) Love Scuba Diving is printed on this sleek looking metallic pen. It is a combination pen with both a black ball point pen and integrated stylus. Can be used on ipad, iphone, tablet or any device that has a touch screen. Keep your divers screen free of fingerprints and scratches. A practical scuba diving gift with a touch of whimsy.
Nothing is worse than seeing an expensive dive accessory making its way to the ocean floor. Your diver can use this to have a secure connection to those cameras, knives, lights, etc. The design of this lanyard allows you to connect either side to your wrist or your accessory. It can then be put on the wrist or connected to the BC. Available in several colors, including bright colors making it easier to spot underwater.
It is easy to get dive gear mixed up with other divers on the boat - or divers/snorkelers in your family. This is an easy solution which is used by many dive shops. Use this waterproof paint to mark all your gear and make identifying your gear that much easier. Comes in different colors and is non-toxic. (Note: Does not adhere very well to fins.)
Nothing can ruin a dive faster than a foggy mask. Having to constantly put water in and out to get that fog off the lens is one big pain. Which is why no divers bag should be without an anti-fog product. This gel is good in all water temperatures and can last for multiple dives. You can get alot of happy divers by giving this little bottle as a scuba diving gift.
Let your diver give a little personal touch to his correspondence, papers, etc. This diver is etched in a white maple wood block. Just press down on the ink pad and - presto - a personalized touch. A unique scuba diving gift for the diver in your life. (Ink pad is not included)
Hang it wherever you want a little whimsical touch. This garden flag (18"x27") doesn't have to be limited to the garden. Hang it on a wall, ceiling, railing, etc. Great for dens, rec rooms, man caves and more. And bring a nice though of diving whenever you see it.
A practical gift for your scuba diver. This kit contains all the basic items needed to help treat minor cuts, scratches, headaches, sinus block, plus other dive related medical problems. It is compact so it is easy to throw in your bag and take it with you. Hopefully a gift they won't ever have to use :) - but they will be eternally grateful if they do need it.Click here for the Scuba Diving First Aid Kit
I thinks these note cards are just beautiful. Sharp and vibrant, they display close-up pictures of underwater life. The inside also has a faint picture of the underwater world. A great way to add a personal touch to a diver's thank you cards, those saying "thinking of you", or whatever occasion fits the bill. Pretty enough to be framed too. There is also a series of note cards available with schools of fish. Take your pick for a special scuba diving gift.
Being a diver means being around water. And we know what that means. Protect that valuable phone with this waterproof case. Keeps out sand, dust, dirt, etc. too. It can also serve as a handy place to keep those tips for the dive crew, keys, credit cards and all those little things can be hard to find in a bigger bag.
Keep Calm And Dive On is the message on this dog tag. A double duty scuba diving gift. Wear it as a dog tag and/or be ready to pop a cold beverage at any time. And show your love for diving at the same time. It is made from chrome plated metal and comes with a 24" chain which can be shortened. So if you just want to attach it to your dive bag, shorten the chain and be ready to celebrate after a days diving.
I love this idea. It says it can be for a bracelet also but I like the idea using it as a zipper pull. Add this to your backpack, luggage, coat, dive bag, etc. It will also have the added benefit of identifying your item if someone else has a similar one. And best of all - it is under $6 with free shipping! A very versatile scuba diving gift.
A simple, easy to use noise maker when you want to get your dive buddy's attention - or anyone's attention. Just put it on your tank, reach back, pull and let it go to hit the tank and make a noise. So your dive buddy won't have to miss that amazing sight you just saw. Also good as a safety precaution if you need someone's help.Click here for the Tank Banger
If you have ever used a plastic mask strap, you know this is a must. It is a neoprene cover that fits over an existing strap on a mask. No more pulled hair! So easy yet so good. I would never use a mask again without a neoprene cover or strap. You can pick from a variety of colors for this scuba diving gift so pick your recipient's favorite color.
Protect that phone with a vinyl skin that let's everyone know your passion. (Note: This is not a hard case or made of gel, etc. It is a vinyl sticker that protects from scratches, etc.). This particular one is for the iphone 5/5S but other models are available.
Have a diver that loves their loose tea? Here is a cute tea infuser shaped like a diving helmet with a counterweight that looks like a dive tank. This tea infuser will have them thinking of those great times underwater as they are waiting for their warm cup. It is a novel way for a diver to start their day.Click here for the Scuba Tea Infuser
This makes a nice scuba diving gift - a scuba flag license plate. Display it proudly as you drive around town. Good reviews on the quality of this plate. And the price is certainly right!
If you have ever experienced jaw fatigue, you know a more comfortable mouthpiece should be on the list. Or maybe it is just time to replace that old worn out mouthpiece they have been using for years. This gets good reviews and makes diving that much more comfortable. A more comfortable dive without spending an arm and a leg? It's a winner! Comes in different colors too. A scuba diving gift that will make their next dive more comfortable.
If you ever tried to get a point across to someone under water and they didn't understand, you know a dive slate is the thing to have. I always bring mine with me. Small enough to fit in a pocket if I don't need it too. This slate has a couple options: you can buy it plain or buy it with a compass or get one that glows in the dark. Now that sounds cool! (Just rollover the pictures under the description for the different options.) Don't let the diver in your life get frustrated trying to communicate, get them a dive slate.
I love this decal. Just a simple diver that you can put anywhere: car, bumper, laptop, windows,etc. Really anywhere with a flat surface. Personalize what they have. It also comes in a variety of colors. Just pick their favorite and you are done.
If the diver in your life ever complained about chafing or blisters from his/her fins, this is the answer. Get them a thin pair for lycra socks that they can wear under their booties or with their full foot fins. A scuba diving gift that decreases chafe and increases pleasure.
So there you have it, 25+ scuba diving gift ideas for under $10. Hopefully you can use at least one of these ideas to surprise the diver in your life. Whatever the reason for the gift is, we hope they love it!
