1. Holiday Gifts For Pool Lovers

    Finding the perfect gift isn’t easy. The most thoughtful gifts require some imagination, creativity — or at least a little research. If you have a pool owner on your list, you’re in luck! We’ve done some of that research for you and came up with great ideas for fun and useful pool-related items anyone would love.

     

    Get personal. These days you can customize almost anything. A set of personalized cabana towels, insulated can sleeves or a special pool sign would look awesome in their outdoor oasis. Or DIY and stencil their name on a USCG-approved life ring or a lifeguard chair. Purchase plans and ready-to-assemble kits online for a lifeguard chair that’s sure to be a big hit.

     

    Make it fun. When water is involved, adults are basically kids in larger swim suits, so they’ll appreciate a toy as much as any tot. There are all sorts of games designed for kids, such as wacky diving toys, but consider something the whole family can get in on. How about a friendly game of backgammon or an exciting round of table tennis? Floating versions put a whole new spin on these classics.

     

    Practical-ly perfect. You can’t go wrong with practical gifts such as festive plastic tableware, colorful pool towels or a drying rack. And one can never have too many floats! But opt for something they might not already own, like the Spongex Unsinkable Pool Float or zany Pool Petz for the kids.

     

    Waterproof their gear. Do some sleuthing to see whether they’ve invested in waterproof cases for their smartphone and tablet. If not, look no further! Lifeproof cases provide submersible protection that could save the day — and make them forever thankful they have a thoughtful friend like you.

     

    Fit for giving. Pool workouts become even more effective with aqua fitness equipment such as swim gloves, dumbbells and jogging belts. Who wouldn’t love to move their workout to the pool during hot summer months — or anytime for that matter?

     

    Light up their life. If you’re still stumped, consider a cool lighting gadget, such as the rechargeable Ocean Blue Nova Floating Pool Light or a floating fountain. Get lights and action in one with the Dancing Water Light and Fountain Show. There are a multitude of reasonably priced options online, at Home Depot and your local pool supply store.

     

    If you’re shopping for the pool lover in your life, the only difficult part will be deciding what to get! From inexpensive toys to splurge-worthy items, the perfect gift is just a click away.
