What to get a mermaid for Christmas? Wetsuit, regulator, a liveaboard trip, a scuba diving voucher – there are plenty of great gifts for divers out there. Unfortunately, most of them come with a hefty price tag or don’t make for a good surprise because scuba gear is super personal and usually needs to be tried and tested first.
Luckily I have got you covered with a selection of great scuba gifts for big and small mermaids to use on the surface or underwater. Best of all – there are great gifts for scuba divers for all budgets on the list!

For big kids
Need to pass the time until your next dive? These scuba gifts are for big kids only and will bring the underwater world into your living room.
One piece at a time
I have always been a huge fan of puzzles – the bigger, the better. These ones are great if you can’t go diving but don’t want to be without your favorite marine animals for too long.
Take only pictures, leave only bubbles
Underwater photography is getting more and more popular so if you have a bigger budget a camera is the perfect gift for divers. For the non-professionals, the best and easiest cameras to use are a GoPro or a Paralenz.
If an entire camera isn’t in your budget check out useful dive gadgets like a floating handle, underwater case, or red filters.
For reading mermaids
I love scuba books and novels, so much so that I have put all my favorites together in one post: 10 Books every Diver should read.
If you need a present for a scuba bookworm this year check out these:
Color the sea
Remember when you learned in your Open Water Course that and how colors disappear the deeper you descend? How about adding a little color back into the underwater world? At least on paper, you can do so with these adult coloring books.
Travel Scuba Accessories
Whether you are going on a liveaboard or just packing for your next dive adventure in the local quarry – accessories to travel and dive in style are here! Passport cover, Gone Diving luggage tag and certification cards holder, and the coolest dry bag I have found on the market make perfect gifts for divers.
Beauty & the Sea
Gifts for scuba lovers should also love the ocean – Stream2Sea is the company when it comes to reef-friendly products. Sunscreen stick, travel kit, the most amazing leave-in conditioner, and back to the 80s – whale shark scrunchies!
