Those are all wonderful gifts ideas. If you are wondering about a good seamanship book, check out this webpage: http://giftsnautical.com/categories.aspx?pid=343

I really like two of the books; "Celestial Navigation" and "Endurance: An Epic of Polar Adventure". Your friend, or whomever you're gifting will probably like it too.
