i'd say something sailing related. either a gift card or jacket/gloves like you mentioned. they would probably be happy with anything you get them. men are pretty easily satisfied.

SailChick,
I'm always reminded of that line from Bull Durham that candlestick holders make a nice gift and that's what I always give for wedding gifts...so I went looking for some shaped like anchors, yada, yada, yada...and ended up here..surprise..there's actually some nice stuff that just might fit the ticket of being unique and not something they'd buy themselves. Just a thought.

Thanks Guys!

Just kidding as I probably know them.
Anyway, its probably not necessaty, but a gift card to Ruth Chris's would be very nice.
(you did say 100 - 150??) Thats a lot. But the best steak house anywhere.
You do know them!...Mark & his boat neighbor Rich (with SUN OF A SAILOR).

Great ideas..thank you! Keep em' coming.
I know I don't have to get them anything...as they told me "That's what friends are for." But really, they've been my Big Brothers all season, helping me figure stuff out when needed....and I'm so overwhelmed with gratitude, some meaningful token of appreciation will help me express it.

I should have added that $100-150 is definitely too much. Like Denby and others have said, they probably enjoyed the sail and would feel bad about taking an expensive gift for doing you a favor.

The ultimate "thank you" might just be to help them out if the tables are ever turned. But if you want to show them your appreciation now, a modest gift card or any of the other suggestions (food -- yum -- good, knife -- sharp -- good) surely would be well received.

Those multi tools are always nice to have...have you seen either of them wearing/carrying a knife or tool? A rigging knife slips easy into the pocket for the guy that isn't a gadget freak.
