Moderately Priced Gifts For Scuba Divers:
Ideas for presents priced between $10

Multi Functional Face Mask

Unfortunately it is a sign of the times. If you need to wear a mask, why not do it in style and show your love of scuba diving? If you don't need it as a mask it can also function as a headscarf, neckband, headband and any other way you see fit. This could easily be useful in  a variety of outdoor activities. If they are not underwater, as least this can give the wearer happy thoughts of our wonderful sport :).

World Dive Map

This is a gorgeous dive map. One of the best that I have seen. It has over 500 dive sites listed all over the world. The unique aspect of this map is that it has wonderful hand drawn features. This map is available in paper, canvas, a foldable version and - best of all - a towel! When they use this on the dive boat and they will get lots of compliments!

Portable Digital Luggage Scale

With all the extra fees they tack on these days during plane travel, you don't want your diver friend to get caught with overweight fees. Or be stuck in the airport moving items from one bag to another. Get them this easy to use digital luggage scale. It is small and portable so they can take it with them and make sure they don't go over the weight limit after adding their souvenirs! One of those very practical - and probably money saving - gifts for scuba divers.

Outback Hat With Dive Flag

You know how much sun a diver can get whether on land or on the dive boat. This wide brimmed hat offers great protection keeping the sun off the face and the neck. No more of those sunburned areas! It features side vents and a removable, adjustable chin strap. Also available with the image of scuba diver on the front. A practical gift for scuba divers that will keep on giving.

Kissing Whale Couple Key Chains

Now you have to admit these are cute. They are magnetic and make it appear as the whales are kissing. This would make a great gift for your favorite diving couple (or for you and a friend :) ). A practical yet whimsical gift for scuba divers of all ages.

Metal License Plate Frame

Instead of a boring old frame from the dealer - or no frame at all - let your diver show his love for the sport. And he will think of being under the water every time he walks to the car. What better present than to transport someone to their dream destination - if only for a minute.

Scuba Diving Wrapping Paper (other graphics available)

Scuba Diving Wrapping Paper

Waterproof Label For Gear

Dive Flag Pet Collar

Face Mask With Regulator

I just got a kick out of this face mask. If we are wearing one we might as well have fun with it. This mask features the image of a dive regulator with bubbles coming out of it. Sure to get lots of smiles from other people - especially divers!

Dive Mask Strap Cover

Don't let the diver in your life go off with a plastic mask strap. If you have ever used one, you know how it pulls your hair. Use this easy to cover wrapper - just put it around the existing mask strap and voila - no more pulled hair. So easy yet so good. I would never use a mask again without a neoprene cover or strap. There are a variety of designs to choose from. Pick one to suit your divers personality!

Save-A-Dive 0 Ring Kit

There is nothing worse than having to call a dive because of a blown o-ring. Well, with this save-a-dive kit, your diver can keep on diving. It comes with 40 o-rings and silicone lube. Use it for o-rings on hoses and tanks as well as lights, regs, cameras and gauges. You will be profusely thanked after the diver is able to save his dive! One of those practical gifts for scuba divers.

Heavy Duty Bottle Opener

Either of these would make a fun yet practical scuba diving present - a heavy duty stainless steel bottle opener. Choose one with the dive flag or one with a diver that can be personalized with the diver's name or other saying. A perfect way to pop open that bottle after a nice day of diving. This is a large opener (7") and would make a nice functional gift for the diver in your life. Bring it out at parties and see the comments you get.

Dry Bag

waterproof case for divers and snorkelers

This makes a nice scuba diving present - a waterproof drybag and phone case to protect all the items a diver brings on the boat (towel, shirt, cash, credit card, c-card, keys, phone, etc.) but wants to keep dry. I don't know of any diver that couldn't use a dry bag. I have several myself in various sizes and use them all the time - both off and on the boat. This item comes in a range of different colors. A nice practical gift for the diver in your life.

Reef Safe Leave-in Conditioner

If you have ever dove, you know how tangled a diver's hair can become. Combing out long hair can be a painful nightmare. Not to mention the damage extended sun time can do to hair. Enter this leave-in conditioner. You can leave it in all day and help protect your hair. And best of all your friend can go diving with it since it is reef safe. This company also makes a highly regarded reef safe sunscreen.

This water bottle is made of stainless steel and 100% BPA free. It's a fun gift and will be perfect for their next dive trip!

Lightweight Turkish Beach Towel

turkish towel for scuba diving travel

I have several of these towels and absolutely love them. They are lightweight and pack down to a small size so they are great for dive travel. While they are soft to begin with, they get softer with each wash. They are also quick drying so they are great for the dive boat. It is the only towel I use when traveling(I no longer use my microfiber towels). I have bought countless of these for gifts and my friends and family also love them. They come in array of colors and designs. Note: There are alot of these towels out there and I have gotten a couple as gifts. LOL. However, the other brands I have received are not as lightweight nor fold up as small so I only use them at home.

Waterproof Car Seat Cover

Now this is one of those practical and useful gifts for scuba divers. They will never have to worry about getting that car seat wet after a dive again. Easier and better coverage than that old towel on the seat. This cover is made of 3mm neoprene - just like a wetsuit and will protect the car seat not just from water but also from odor, stains and wear for years to come. It slips right on the seat, doesn't slip and will contour to the shape of the seat. And better yet, it is machine washable for easy care. This is rated 5 out of 5 stars so your diver will be happy with this gift!

Mesh Dive Bag

Now this is another practical and useful gifts for a scuba divers. This will hold all your diver's gear for easy transport on and off the dive boat. You always want your gear together and in a compact space for your ease of mind, the safety of your equipment and to be considerate of other divers space. This rugged mesh bag can also just be dipped into the rinse tank with all the equipment in it if in a rush. The bag also folds for easy and compact storage when not in use. I never go diving without my mesh bag. Gets great reviews.

Surface Marker Buoy With Whistle

lycra scuba diving sock

You want to make sure your loved one is safe. This scuba gift can help, especially if a diver gets separated from the group. This SMB is 6 feet tall (don't buy a shorter version) and is in the highly visible orange color. It also has a whistle attached for another safety signaling device. Great idea for all dives but pretty much a necessity on drift dives where it is much easier to get separated. Let your divers know you love them and want them to be safe! One of those practical gifts for scuba divers.

LED Dive Light

Whether night diving or wanting to look into cracks and crevices during the day, a dive light can be a diver's best friend. This one is guaranteed to a depth of 150 meters and is light weight at only 6.3o z. This light has 4 working modes and comes with a rechargeable battery. This light gets great all around reviews from divers and should serve your diver well. Another practical and useful dive gift.

Solar Powered Phone Charger

Who can't use an external charger for their phone. This one is solar powered and includes two USB ports, type C port, dual flashlights and a compass kit. This one would be great to use on a dive trip and it is light weight at only 7.2 oz. so no weighing down the luggage. Of course, this can be used in a variety of environments such as camping, hiking, beach going, fishing, etc. They will never be at a loss for power and can capture their memories without worrying about the phone charge.
