    What about some red, blue white flags. I saw some in a magazine a while ago and the flags were on a piece of rope and were triangle in shape and they were hanging on a wall. They looked really cool.

    New curtains are always a quick way to update the look of a room.
    You could applique or embroider or stencil anchors & boats etc on some of his linen
    Also those transfers that go around the top of the wall.
    Maybe a big plush parrot to make the room look more pirateish.
    A new rug.
    Some of the old fashioned looking maps on the wall (the ones that are brown and yellow shades) or some ship prints
    A pirate chest toy box

    find a nice big 3d picture frame and go for a scavenger hunt with oscar collect some sand, shells sea-weed, driftwood etc and maybe a few items from a gift shop with a naughtical theme and have fun creating an art work together or if you could find a double fame include a picture of Oscar or both of you on your adventure providing a keepsake to remember the day by.(actually a nice b&w pic of Oscar picking up a treasure off the beach would be sweet)

    Thanks for all the ideas girls.... I am a bit useless when it comes to boys stuff! We live near the beach so I thought it would be a good theme! Just struggled coming up with ideas! That gives me a great starting point!!

    How about a boat bookshelf, I love those!
    I have boat thememed bunting, that's the flags someone else was talking about.
    Ebay has many canvas paintings too.

    You can also add 3 paintings of boat (canvas) and each one has a different flag at the top.
