When choosing any gift, the person's personality and interests are key. I love these kayak cufflinks, but they would not be a good gift for someone who never wears a fancy shirt that could display a pair of cufflinks.
If, however, your friend works in a job for which he must wear a dress shirt, but you know he'd much prefer to be out on a lake paddling his heart out, then these cufflinks would be perfect!
The joe bender figurine would fit anywhere. You could place this little guy on a side table or find this little trinket a place on a window sill or on a curio shelf.
The kayak pens are just for fun. They can be carried around by a person of any age. Each time your friend writes a grocery list or works on her homework, she will imagine she is really paddling her kayak among the loons. The pens come as a four piece set and include two blue and two red pens. They would be a fun gift for a teacher who is also an outdoors enthusiast. (There is no indication on the website, however, as to whether the ink is also red and blue. My guess is that they are all blue ink and the red is describing just the kayak-shaped casing, but I could be wrong.)
The clock adds a nice touch to the decor of an office or home. The backgound image shows a peaceful water scene. Although the description on Amazon says it is a kayak, It looks more like a canoe to me. I believe the photo is from the movie "Deliverance." Whether the picture is of a kayak or a canoe, however, this 10 inch diameter clock is quite beautiful. Great for your own home or as a gift for a friend who shares your outdoor passion.
