Unique Gifts for the Pool Lover in Your Life

December 14th, 2021 by

The holidays are here! And while in most climates that means backyard swimming pools have been closed and covered for the season, the spring thaw will arrive before you know it and anticipation is already building in pool owners. So, this is the perfect time to get a swimming-related gift for the pool lover in your life.

Here are some ideas to get the creative juices flowing.

  1. Motorized floating party tray – Serve guests in style while they swim with a floating tray that holds drinks and snacks. There are even versions that are motorized and radio controlled to add an element of fun to delivering refreshments.
  2. Pool’s edge rock climbing wall – Rock climbing is a great way to test your strength and skill. Scaling the heights with the welcoming water of the pool makes it even more fun. While not an inexpensive addition to a pool, it’s sure to be a hit!
  3. Remote-controlled skimmer – Turn a chore into a challenge with a remote-controlled skimmer for chasing down floating leaves, bugs, and other debris. No more assigning this task; family members will be fighting for the chance to use this “toy.”
  4. Waterproof smartphone case – Give the gift of underwater photos and video! While many smartphones are designed to be water resistant, a waterproof case allows a pool lover to jump in and capture the fun with no concerns about damaging their phone.
  5. Inflatable movie screen – Imagine gently bobbing on the water as you watch your favorite movie on a warm summer Saturday night. With an inflatable movie screen sitting poolside, your floating lounge chair is the best seat in the house!
  6. All-weather pool table – If your favorite pool lover also loves pool (as in billiards), there are tables that will let them enjoy both at the same time. Outdoor billiard tables can be set up poolside or even in the shallow end of the pool!
  7. Personalized pool gear – Whether it’s a lifesaving ring or a set of pool rules, owners love to show their pool pride with personalized items bearing the family name.
  8. Floating bluetooth speaker – Hit play and turn up the tunes, or rest and relax to soothing sounds all without getting up from your pool float.

Pool Gift Perfection

If you want to see a pool lover’s eyes light up this holiday season, get them a fun pool-related gift and watch as they daydream about the arrival of summer. The list of unique pool accessories is virtually endless.
