If you're going to buy a book for your buddy then there's plenty to choose from - covering underwater photography, dive destinations, history, skills, fitness and fish guides. My favourite this year is Glass and Water by freediver Mark Harris. If you're looking for something a bit different then try Taming Tigers by freediver and race-jockey Jim Lawless - a book full of tips to be who you always wanted to be but were a bit to scared to try. Much cooler than 'Feel the fear and do it anyway'!
Divesangha create ethical and stylish clothes and accessories for divers - my favourites are the hoody, poncho and towel. And best of all they have a sale on now! Also on my wish list for Christmas is a Fourth Element bikini made from recycled 'ghost' fishing nets.
For the hardy dive-all-year buddy, consider a thick, cosy Dryrobe to keep them warm between dives.
