Hi, this is Kyle from APS and I'm here to share with you our top sailing gift picks under $50.
I'm going to start with this. This is the SALTI 3rd Wave bracelet from SALTI up north. Comes in this nice gift box. Why would a sailor like this? It uses real stainless hardware for on and off here, and these lines are all high tech. This is Dyneema, Technora, and a high tech small diameter control line. If you don't know what those are, don't worry, the sailor will. Very nice styling. These are hand made, and it comes with this nice SALTI charm. This is the 3rd Wave nautical bracelet by SALTI. Very popular in our store.
SmartWool socks. Doesn't sound very exciting. Let me tell you, you give these to somebody and they put them on their feet on a cold day, they will love you. We sell these for about 10 years. I know everybody on staff wears these and in my house at home. What's so nice about them? They're Merino wool, so they don't stratch. Don't think about regular wool. They guarantee that they will not itch you. Now look at the inside. Look how plush that is, so comfortable.
What's so nice about the Merino wool beside it not itching you? Wool has a really good ability to wick moisture, but when you can't get all the moisture out because you're wearing a rubber boot or something like that, it also has the ability to absorb moisture. Synthetic socks can't do that, and your feet will feel wet. In these, not going to have that problem. They're so thick and comfortable. I know at our house we end up wearing these as slippers around the house. They're a do it all sock by SmartWool.
Okay, Sharon Green's calendar, the Ultimate Sailing. Take a look at the imagery in this. Forget your electronic Outlook calendar. They're boring. You’ve got to see some of this. You got that hanging up around the house, in the room, at the office, people will take note, and it's just engaging photography. Ultimate Sailing calendar by Sharon Green for 2017.
Okay, SailorBags. This is the Chesapeake wine gift bag. This is a new product for us. It's made of sail material. Just slide a single bottle of wine in, pull that tight, nice way to present a gift. On an more practical side, if you're taking two or three bottles of wine to a picnic out on the water, slide them into this, keep them from clanking around. Nice piece by SailorBags.
Okay, last piece. This is a new product by Wichard. This is their offshore serrated knife. It is a single-hand operation, locking blade. Has serration here for getting through the tough stuff, and then a standard blade up here. Locking on the back. Closing it. This particular one is the fluro one, which means at night it will actually glow. It makes it easier to find in the glove box or in the chart table. Then it has actually a practical adjustable lanyard. That's the offshore serrated knife by Wichard.
