Narrowboat & Canal Boat Gifts – Top 10 Ideas for Christmas and Birthdays
Here are our top 10 narrowboat & canal boat gift ideas for your family and friends who just love boating or being by our wonderful UK canal and rivers. We have picked beautiful gifts that would truly make a wonderful present for someone. They are all themed on narrowboats and canals, as well as the colourful wildlife such as kingfishers and dragonflies. These perfect canal boat gifts and accessories are sure to save you time hunting about.
For just £8, get someone a cute lavender bag with a narrowboat scene on both the front and back. Too cute to just hang in the cupboard, better to hang on door knobs so you can smell the fragrance and admire the design.
This canal scene make-up bag is only £18.50 featuring a lock, lock house and ducks. It has a waterproof lining so can be used as a make-up bag or wash bag. Other designs are available that include a wildlife ditzy of kingfishers, dragonflies and herons.
These oven gloves have been designed in watercolour and printed onto fabric to create a gorgeous collection of canal scenes including narrowboats, locks, bridges, kingfishers to name a few. At only £25 they make a lovely gift and can be matched with an apron and tea towels. They are available in 4 different ‘seasons’ so you are sure to find a colourway to suit.
Look no further for your canal themed interior, we have found the perfect cushions: narrowboat themed on one side and wildlife ditzy themed on the other. The wildlife side is also in velvet so adds a touch of luxury. Can be bought in 4 different colours, all to complement each other. They will brighten up any interior at £46 each.
Personalised calendars are a really fun idea. Gather together all your narrowboat holiday photos or days out by the canal and put them together for the year. It means the canal experience goes on living.
This adds a little bit of tradition to the gift ideas, with the design of this notebook being canal folk art. We love the colours and design, and so will any canal boat enthusiast. At just £11.40 it’s a great stocking filler.
We are continuing to take bookings as normal for our 2021 hire boat season – at the moment these are still only being taken online. Presently we are still not taking short break bookings, but will honour those already booked with us.
Please Note: Unfortunately due to social distancing measures we are still unable to accept bookings from novices for the 2021 season. All customers will be assessed and must have had previous experience of handling a narrowboat and the working of locks – by booking you are agreeing to these conditions.
Bedding Update: Please be aware that we are once again providing duvets, bedding and towels for hirers however politely request that you provide your own pillows and pillow cases.
The main hirer will need to wear a facemask whilst signing the necessary handover forms.
We will of course review all our decisions regarding novices, bedding and short break bookings at the start of the 2021 hire boat season, and again during the season as and when necessary. For the continued protection of our customers, and in addition to our normal strict cleaning regimes, we shall carry on applying a Microbe Shield at intervals on all hire boats during the course of 2021 season.
