If you’re looking for inspiration for special gifts you can buy for your loved ones this Christmas, we have some great ideas.
The gift of travel
Ferry gift vouchers mean you can send your loved one on a fantastic trip without committing to dates. So whether you want to send your loved one on holiday, give them a journey home or simply treat them to a new experience, the gift of travel is the perfect Christmas present for this yule-tide. With most operators offering gift cards or vouchers your gift will give future adventures and something to look forward to. For a completely unique experience why not give a Hovercraft Experience Flight.
Unique Scottish island experience and maritime-themed clothing range
The ideal gift for wild swimmers, hikers, cyclists or those with an interest in Scotland’s rich maritime history, the range of hoodies, sweatshirts and t-shirts offers a striking and unique Christmas present. My favourite: the Corryvrecken Swim Club hoodie. https://shop.calmac.co.uk/c/clothing/
Kids ferry-themed toys
From cuddly soft Captain Teds to COBE ferry building sets, the Red Funnel gift shop has some great gifts for young mariners and naval engineers: https://www.redfunnel.co.uk/en/isle-of-wight-ferry/why-choose-us/gift-shop/
A taste of the Isle of Wight
Whether it’s a gift for someone or something to enjoy yourself, Wight Taste shops and cafes have partners with local Isle of Wight suppliers and have plenty to get your taste buds tingling. Pick up some famous Isle of Wight Tomato sauces from The Tomato Stall, garlicky treats from The Garlic Farm or some Mermaid Gin featuring locally foraged samphire. Wight Taste stores can be found at Wightlink’s Portsmouth Gunwharf port, Fishbourne port and Yarmouth port, plus onboard their vehicle ferries.

Fill your santa boots with duty free
Warner’s Christmas cake gin, that special fragrance or gift set, or if you’re just stocking up for the Christmas period, duty free is now available on ferries to the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands, France, The Netherlands and Spain.
