Welcome to Day 7 of Cruise Critic’s Gift-o-Rama, in which we’ve been unwrapping our 2011 gift picks for the cruisers among us. Better yet: You can actually win some of our choices by simply being a Lido Deck subscriber, including today’s gift, Gargoyles Sunglasses. These shades provide 100 percent UV protection, and are designed to withstand a lot of wear and tear, making them perfect for cruisers on the go. And yes, you can snag a pair for free!
Congratulations to hmc30, who receives a Cruise Critic swag pack. For more information on the cool stuff we’ve been profiling daily on our ever-growing gift-guide-in-the-making, click here.
Here’s the 411 on today’s gift-list-ready find:
What it is: Gargoyles Sunglasses ($95)
Why we like it: Every cruiser needs a sturdy pair of sunglasses to get them through those sunny Caribbean days, and we think Gargoyles fit the bill. These shades are lightweight, offer 100 percent UV protection and feature shatter-resistant ballistic defense lenses — that means you likely won’t have to worry about crushing them in your day pack while on excursions ( or you know, sitting on them when you’re trying to get settled in your deck chair). Plus, you can easily have your prescription added to the lenses. They are even available in dozens of styles and colors, so you’re sure to find a pair perfectly suited to the cruiser on your to-gift list.
Where to get it: Check it out here.
The fine print: We’ll be showcasing one gift each day through December 9 and picking a winner of either the gift itself or a Cruise Critic swag pack at random from among all subscribers to the Lido Deck. If you’re already a subscriber or you subscribe before 6 p.m. this evening (December 5), you’ll have a chance to win a pair of Gargoyles Prowl Sunglasses in black.
Check here for the rules, and be sure to come back each morning at 10 a.m. EST to see the gift du jour — and to find out if you won the previous day’s giveaway.
