Summer is a busy season for many people, and it seems like there’s no shortage of events: graduations, birthdays, weddings, baby showers…you know the drill. If you’re looking for a small token of appreciation or congratulatory gift for a SCUBA diver, you’re in luck. LeisurePro has a large selection of gift-worthy items that don’t require any detailed knowledge of SCUBA on the part of the giver, but will be sure to please the diver recipient. Here are a few of our suggestions.
Stickers are and always have been somewhat of a collector’s item, and the more unusual the better. People enjoy stickers even if they have no intention of ever actually sticking them on anything, so if you don’t see any bumper stickers on your recipient’s car, don’t fret. Maybe your sticker choice will be just the one they’ve been looking for to adorn their car window, laptop, or favorite water bottle. If you’re just looking for a cool, simple gift to slip into a card or as an addition to another gift, a sweet SCUBA decal is an easy one to get your hands on.
Pins are basically a three-dimensional form of stickers, and boy, are they ever collectible. People wear pins to express all manner of things these days, and they often incite conversation or appreciation from total strangers. Divers are a fairly proud bunch — we appreciate our roles as ambassadors of the sea, and we know that our activity of choice is rather out of the ordinary. In this way, gifting a diver a SCUBA pin is really giving them accolades for their unusual skills and knowledge, and who doesn’t want a little of that every now and then?
And for the ultimate easiest gift to give, there is no shortage of SCUBA-themed apparel to choose from, but none so ubiquitous as the t-shirt. T-shirts have been known to be passed down among generations of families, depending on the design of and on the shirt itself. Now, if you’re going with the t-shirt as a gift, it is very important that you actually pay attention to the graphics and sizing of the shirt based on whomever your recipient will be. For instance, you shouldn’t give a young woman diver a men’s XXL shirt, unless that’s her typical style of dress. A sad number of t-shirts end up in the thrift store pile or as garage rags due to inappropriate sizing. Find a graphic or style that really suits the diver you’re gifting, and you may never see that diver in anything else!
