But if you're one for adding a personal touch to all of your gifts, there's absolutely no reason why a life preserver can't be customized. From painting a friend's name on it to transcribing a personal message, this is a surefire way to make sure your friend feels appreciated.

There are countless ways to bring the ocean into your home or a friend's, and these are just a few of them. So the next time you're looking for nautical themed home decor, you'll have a great idea of where to start.
