Nautical Charts, Maps & Compass Designs are HOT!

The beach lifestyle is all about ease so online shopping is definitely a must in our book!  I sure don't miss the crowded parking lots; waiting in line and pushy shoppers. It's great shopping from the comfort of your cozy cottage while enjoying a warm cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

What's hot this Holiday season? 
Nautical Charts, Maps & Compass Designs!

A practical gift and oh, so stylish! These Nautical Chart Coasters are available from Ocean Offerings. The nautical chart is the trusted ally in fog, a blueprint for a weekend escape, and shows the way to a safe anchorage in unfamiliar waters. Displaying the chart allows the sailor to stay close to his passion even when land-locked. This set of four (4) coasters create a "mural" of one large chart area. >> SHOP NOW

Stop by Caron's Beach House for a fabulous decorative nautical tray with hand-painted details of sailing ships, old world maps and maritime symbols. This nautical treasure is made of heavy porcelain, and antiqued for just the right look to complete your nautical beach house decorating scheme! >> SHOP NOW

Nautical sketches to delight your imagination! A plump handmade pillow created by BeachsideStyle. The pillow offers drawings of boats, yachts, sailboats along with compass sketches, and interesting comments as if written by the Captain in the Ship's Log, or by a letter from the crew on each side. What a perfect home decor accent or gift for the nautical lover in your life! >> SHOP NOW

What a thoughtful & practical gift!! The Nautical Mini Chart Bag from Cottage Coastal are built to withstand the sand and the seawater. Canvas can be abused by a beach environment, which makes these bags great for lugging all your necessities to where ever your favorite coastal destination may be. >>SHOP NOW

When you're done charting your path, check out these International Code Flag art prints by Expressionista. These are a great Christmas idea where you don't have to be a boat enthusiast to enjoy this fun and funky wall art. Put up one or add a couple - they have great impact on any wall, desk or shelf.

Since some of the phrasing is cheeky, a set of letters to make up a word or name, would be a fun way to bring humor into your space. >> SHOP NOW

Now that you've got your shopping started don't forget to decorate your nautical Christmas gifts with these coffee stained gift tags from Beach House Living! Each set of six (6) tags have been oven baked and hand stamped in navy images of compasses and anchors over a soft metallic gold French script background.
This classic styling is suitable for the boat or water lover. >>SHOP NOW

...and we love this Custom Longitude & Latitude Sign from Outer Banks Trading Group. This Colorful Compass Rose in the center is ivory with a black bevel. >>  SHOP NOW
