Christmas may be done and dusted, but summer presents a great opportunity to spoil family and friends with pools in their backyards. With New Year sales in full swing, you can find some useful pool gifts at great prices.
If you know someone with a pool, you’ve probably heard from them how they’re in their pool a lot right now. You can help them to get even more out of summer by gifting them pool toys, floats and poolside accessories.
If you’re not quite sure where to begin when it comes to pool gifts, we’ve made a list of some popular items that the pool owner in your life will certainly appreciate. Read on to find out!
Pool volleyball is exactly what it sounds like. A set will come with a floating volleyball, as well as a net to place along the middle of the pool. You then select your teams, and your side of the pool! You can find affordable pool volleyball sets at many retailers. The game is great for swimmers of all ages, and is easy and quick to set up and pack away. It’s also wonderful to get a bit of exercise into a swim!
You can find pool fishing games in all sorts of varieties. These are perfect for entertaining kids, especially on days where swimming might not be happening due to bad weather. The sets usually feature a simple plastic fishing rod and items to pick up, like plastic ducks or fishes. The rod may have a hook on the end to pick up the floating items, or it might have a magnet on its end to pick them up.
Pool floats are guaranteed to be enjoyed by the whole family, and ride-on inflatables are no exception. Ride-on inflatables are available in all sorts of designs, such as horses and unicorns, and there are even rolling inflatables that you sit inside of and push forward with your hands to roll around the pool! These could be the perfect gift for a family member or friend who likes to host pool parties.
For those who love to relax, an inflatable pool lounge makes for a useful gift. Pool lounges are designed for you to rest in your pool while having something to drink, listening to music or reading a book. Some of them have built-in benches perfect for holding snacks, and cup holders as well.
If the pool owner in your life has a swimming pool and happens to also love golf, you could always gift them a pool golf set. These usually contain a golf green that floats on the pool, a putter, and a set of floating golf balls. The people playing the game then stand on the side of the pool (or further back depending on their skill level) and attempt to get a hole in one!
Inflatable Movie Screen
You’ve probably heard of traditional projector screens that can be set up in the backyard, but have you heard of inflatable movie screens? These make for a unique gift for a pool owner, as they are large inflatable screens that connect to a projector to create an immersive outdoor cinema experience. Inflatable movie screens are positioned poolside so that pool owners can lounge around in their pool watching their movie of choice. Keep in mind that these screens tend to be on the pricier side in comparison to other pool gifts, so watch out for good deals.
Floating Pool Lights
Perhaps the pool owner in your life loves to entertain? The perfect accompaniment to a pool party or a dinner in the backyard, gorgeous floating pool lights will instantly add a splash of colour to the pool, turning it into an eye-catching backdrop. There are plenty of designs to choose from, like spherical lights, flower-shaped lights and star-shaped lights. You can also get them in multiple colours.
As highlighted above, there’s a lot of options out there when it comes to gift ideas for the pool owner in your life. Benefit from the summer sales to find the best pool gifts at decent prices for your family and friends.
