Something Everyone Will Love

There are more than 10 million homes in the United States alone that have swimming pools. But what pool gift ideas should you consider?

After all, there are so many cool pool gift ideas that it can be hard to pick just one. Fortunately, you don’t have to pick just one if you don’t want to. But where should you start?

Keep reading and learn more about the different gifts for swimming pool lovers you can choose from below.

For the One Who Loves the Basics

There are many general and basic gifts that you can choose for those who own swimming pools.

You can never go wrong with pool accessories. For example, a pool thermometer or patch kits are always welcome gifts. When it comes to maintaining your pool, these are staples every pool owner should have.

Testing the concentration of chemicals in pools is crucial to keeping it top condition, so having the appropriate tools is a must. And that’s exactly what pool patch kits are for.

Fluctuating temperatures may mean that your pool heater isn’t working very well.

Other than thermometers and test kits, other great basic gifts can include chlorinators and even pool toys. Pool toys can always come in handy because, after all, they’re great fun. More than that, there are plenty of options to choose from, such as floating volleyball toys, beach balls, and pool noodles.

Even if there aren’t any kids to play with these pool toys, they can still be a riot for adults, especially for parties where everyone can join in on the fun.

For the Cleaning Enthusiast

If you know a pool owner who is also a cleaning enthusiast, you might want to be a bit more specific with the pool gifts that you intend to give.

The perfect gift, of course, would be a leaf net. A leaf net is a very finely woven net that allows a person to filter things like leaves, dead insects, and other debris from the surface of the pool. Cleaning the pool this way is important because if no one ever skims the surface of the pool with a net, all the debris on the surface will eventually sink to the bottom of the pool.

Unfortunately, pools will naturally get dirty without cleaning them every once in a while, but leaf nets make the task very easy. There are also pool vacuums that make great gifts for cleaning enthusiasts. These vacuums make it easy to suck up whatever debris might be sitting at the bottom of the pool.

For the One Who Loves Relaxing

Owning a pool doesn’t have to be a chore and it won’t be for the pool owner that loves relaxing. Basking in the sun, floating across the water, and playing by the pool are some past times that your relaxed pool owner might spend their time doing. That’s why several products make perfect gifts for those who love relaxing by the pool.

Consider a pool heater, for example. More often than not, summer isn’t hot enough to keep pool water warm enough to float around in. That’s why we have pool heaters! No one likes jumping into a glacial pool to do the front stroke. So if your pool lover doesn’t already have one, they’ll be inviting you over to take a dip in their heated pool water.

Maybe they’re one step ahead of you and already got the perfect oasis set up. You can opt to make their relaxing backyard get away even better with floating wine glass holders. This way your pool owner can relax away while sipping their favourite beverage only a floatie away.

For the Floatie Fanatic

Speaking of floaties, some pool owners live to have the best collection around.

These days there are so many options, from different shapes, sizes, colors, and even themes. There are all sorts of floaties to choose from. For your float fanatic, you might want to pick up a pair of floating beach chairs, maybe a doughnut-shaped floaties, or one of those that are in the shape of animals such as swans, sharks, and so on, and more.

The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to floaties. But if your pool owner has already got their pool equipped with all of these options, then an interactive game floatie will have them jumping for joy! From basketball hoops to soccer goals, and beer pong tables, there are floatie games for just about everyone.

For the Techie

If you know a techie who is obsessed with fiddling with the more technical characteristics of their swimming pool, then there are certain gifts you should consider.

You can opt to get them a waterproof speaker. There’s nothing worse than accidentally splashing your poolside radio with some water, or worse it takes a deep dive in the pool. That’s why a waterproof speaker is a perfect gift! Some pool speakers even have lights and different sound capabilities! Whether they’re hosting a pool time cocktail hour or having a relaxing afternoon poolside, a waterproof pool speaker is an excellent gift.
