Edible Ideas

Is Dad into seafood boils? Take a cue from that and mix up a batch of yummy, crunchy Seafood Boil Trail Mix (1). Then, package this special snack in muslin bags hand-stamped with nautical designs.

Or concoct a super-flavorful homemade Seafood Boil Seasoning (4). Bundle up half-cup amounts in cheesecloth tied with twine, then seal in cello bags to give as favors.

DIY Home Items

Send guests home with quaint scrap wood sailboats (5) assembled from wood block bases, with fabric sails and flags glued to a stick. Great sailing accents for a home desk, living room coffee table, or mantel.

For home entertaining, guests will find these DIY nautical-inspired coasters (2) pretty interesting. They’re made with a vintage mussel graphic on paper – or any nautical pattern of your choice – glued to cork rounds.

Or why not opt for those popular hand-decorated coffee mugs (3) – each one sporting a sailing-related graphic made with Sharpies?
