I love pressies which are both fun and useful. Form and function.

Square frying pans are available here and cost about 6.50. Ive had mine for 2 years and the teflon coating is just starting to wear away.

I dont think any woman who is a keen sailor would dislike a present which is boating related and useful.

If you want girly things ... sarongs, nautical T Shirts, moisturiser and lip balms... I use heaps of it with a built in sunscreen to combat our tropical weather in Australia! A good book on one of our women sailing heroines, I love my Kay Cottee 'First Lady' book and Ellen MacArther book they inspire. She may even enjoy checking out my web site ... like www.cruising-women-on-yachts.com/sea-quotes.html or www.cruising-women-on-yachts.com/beauty-afloat.html

I second the head lamp. Better than a booklight!

I would like to have a better knife - mine is a good one, a Gerber, but I can't get the blades out of the darn thing without a screwdriver. Are you reading this, George?

A beautiful eyeglass lanyard trimmed with beads or shells. Don't buy the Croakie shell or bead ones, they break.

Have to log off now, to check out the Swiss Diamond and Square skillets.

I like this thread - good ideas.
I was pleasently surprised how much Lisa liked the set of good foulies I got her for Christmas. Keeping her warm and comfortable means she'll like being on the boat even when the wx is crummy. I also got her her own inflatable kayak so we don't have to share the one and can explore together. She gave me a good headlamp and I love it. Roll-up jigsaw mat? I'll look for one and a camer tripod too (she also got me a small under water camera which I love).
Heres another idea - have a camera shop make a calendar of 12 favorite pictures. Or is there an outfit that could put 52 of your favorites on the back of a deck of cards?

I got a small camera tripod for my small digitals. They are about 6 inches long and they are great.

How about a food saver? I know it sounds kind of bland for a gift...but I would like one especially when cruising.

Uh no...anything that has to do with food preparation or cleaning will get you in the dog house.

How about flowers? I have never seen any woman get upset about a nice bouquet and a sweet card to go with it.
