Holiday Gift Ideas for your Dock


I find it harder and harder each year to buy gifts for my family and friends.  I find myself picking up something at the last minute knowing it will likely never be used.  This year I decided to be more practical and give things that I know will be of use and that they'll be able to enjoy year round.  Since I live in a boating community and we all have docks, here are some ideas I came up with.

Please share your ideas if you have others.

These items are great gifts that can be added to year after year.  Buy just one, two or three and then keep giving over and over.



Solar Piling Cap
Lights automatically come on at dusk and turn off at dawn and provide 360 degrees of illumination for docking your boat or just dock safety at night. The solar piling cap lights are completely waterproof made of durable UV resistant ABS. 

These solar lights are mounted on top of a sturdy steel base, housed inside an attractive, Colonial style 12" tall, 4" wide vinyl pillar. Easy to install and NO WIRES. These decorative and functional dock accessories will add style to your dock day or night. The lamp is designed to illuminate your boat, dock and stainless steel cleat, and not shine in your eyes

How to use LED Strip Lights for your Boat, Dock and Deck Landing

LED Strip Lights are one of the most requested items.  While rope lights have been around for a while and mostly used during the holidays, LED Strip Lights have a multitude of uses and are used year round.  The waterproof LED Strip Lights can be used on your docks, decks and boat houses to provide enough ambient lighting for your social gatherings while keeping those bright lights out of the eyes of your guests.




LED Strip Lighting offers the perfect solution to creating energy efficient, stylish accent and mood lighting.  Strip lights are discreet, flexible and since they come with a strong adhesive, they can be mounted virtually anywhere.

Strip Lights come in a variety of colors and are purchased by the reel.  You can cut and connect the LED strip to just about any size and mount anywhere.

The Lunasea Flexible Strip LED in Blue is my personal favorite.  You can design your own mood lighting for your boat, your dock or your favorite outdoor space.

More Holiday Decoration Ideas - Underwater Lighting




I absolutely love the newest trend of illuminating your dock area with underwater lighting.  Technically advanced and built to perform in the harshest marine environments, LED Underwater Lights come in a variety of styles, sizes and colors.

Resistant to corrosion, simple to install and fully sealed waterproof electronics, LED lights can project a powerful beam covering a wide area.








While underwater lights are a great holiday decoration idea, they're not just for special occasions.  My dock landing is the focal point of my home.  All of our outdoor activities are held near or on our dock.  Underwater lighting can enhance the social atmosphere and provide safety lighting for your guests.  Create a unique waterway by lighting your dock and enticing your neighbors to follow along, creating your own lighted waterway.

Dock Lighting Mistakes To Avoid

A lighted boat dock will provide you with convenient and safe access to your boat. When you are designing your boat dock you should be sure to install lighting that provides you with proper visibility. When you are docking your boat at night or in harsh weather conditions, your dock lights will allow you to safely maneuver your vessel. To assist you with your project, here is a look at some common boat dock lighting mistakes that should be avoided.
Installing Elevated Bright Lights 
When you are installing boat dock lighting, it is important to avoid installing lights that are tall and very bright. If your lighting is installed too high off of the level of the dock, your visibility may be compromised. Instead, it is a great idea to install smaller lights that are at the hip level of the average person. This lighting level will provide you with proper visibility when you are getting off of your boat.



Choosing Metal Light Casings is another boat dock lighting mistake to avoid.  Since metal reacts and corrodes when it comes into contact with water, metal lights will quickly deteriorate when they are installed on your boat dock. To ensure that your boat dock lights last for as long as possible, you can choose lights that are housed in waterproof plastic.
Do Not Neglect the End of the Dock as you are designing your boat dock lighting.  You may want to pay specific attention to the area where passengers will disembark from the vessel. However, it is also highly important to illuminate the end of your dock. To ensure that you are able to identify your dock when you are pulling in during the nighttime, you can incorporate one or more colored lights into your design.

Residential Dock Ideas

We found this boat dock that is designed with a boat lift and a side lift for a smaller wave runner or other personal watercraft.  This looks to be a great design that still allows for ample room to move around the dock without being too crowded.  Also, a fantastic look with the pilings trim and the roof details. We don't see any cleats on the actual dock, which we would definitely add.
