The Orca D560 and D520 are also among our top 10 Christmas gifts for scuba divers. Torches are incredibly useful pieces of kit for helping divers see the underwater world around them more clearly.

Both practical gifts under £100, these torches have a depth rate up to 150 meters and are made using a corrosion resistant construction. The D560 has a light output of up to 630 lumens, whilst the slightly more expensive D520 has a light output of up to 100 lumens.
The Apeks RK3 Fins are a brand new set of fins that have been designed alongside the US military, made from thermoplastic rubber to provide great power and efficiency in the water, whilst ensuring maximum durability. The compound used is slightly softer than other fins making them much springier, and providing a little more ‘snap’ on the down stroke. Spring straps make it easy to get the fins on and off, whilst a firm blade with a good sized foot pocket further enhances comfortable access, even when using drysuit boots. Priced just below the £100 mark this is one of the most practical scuba diving gifts for him or her that all diving enthusiasts are bound to love.
The Beuchat Explorer HD Bag is another one of our gifts under £100 as part of the Black Friday sale. Providing ample space for storing and transporting diving essentials, the Explorer HD Bag is made from 1000 deniers tarpaulin material that’s extremely durable, and is complemented by a secure welded seam. A U-shaped double cursor zip fastener provides easy access, whilst an additional zippered pocket provides secure storage for keys and/or papers for under flap protection.
Another practical choice among our top 10 gifts for scuba divers in 2022 is a line cutter. This is an essential piece of kit for all divers to carry in case they need to cut through lines or other entanglements in case of emergencies - they’re also useful for sports like sailing, climbing and skydiving.

The clean cut ceramic blade is capable of slicing through almost anything, and the line cutter comes with a handy harness pouch and a spare ceramic blade. There are a range of various colour options to suit different individuals.

These gloves are definitely one to add to your list of Christmas gifts for scuba divers for those who dive in cold water. Ideal for supporting the thermal properties of wearing a drysuit, the Scuba Dry Five Dive Gloves are made from ultra supple 5mm neoprene to prevent cold hands!
