As the holidays are quickly approaching, it’s sometimes challenging to know what to buy for everyone on your shopping list. A good rule of thumb for thoughtful giving is to focus on an area of interest a person already has in their life. If you know someone who owns a pool, they’ll probably be more than happy to receive something that would enhance their swimming and poolside experience (see Part 1). Here are a few more ideas you could consider getting for the pool owners in your life.
Pool Entertaining Equipment and Accessories
If you know someone who loves throwing pool parties, why not give them some gifts that will take their next backyard bash to the next level? These could include everything from durable plastic dishes and cups that are designed to be used at a pool party to an outdoor sound system. You could even splurge and get a water-proof TV for those who want to host outdoor sports or movie nights. Some other great pool entertaining gift ideas would include pool party invitations, tropical decorations, and floating drink coolers and tables. You could even include some party favors for them to give out. You could even put together several of these items to create a complete pool entertainment bundle!
Pool and Patio Games
Another way to enhance your friend’s pool experience is to buy them some pool and patio games. These could include a shuffleboard, corn hole, or ladder ball set for the patio. For the pool, you could purchase beach balls, a volleyball net, or even a floating ping pong table or golf putting green.
Pool and Patio Lighting Options
You can help your friend transform the look of their pool with some fun new lighting ideas. For example, you could buy colorful floating globe lights, battery-powered LED tea light floats, or a set of solar sconces to illuminate their garden path. Tiki torches are another great option. You could even get a fun and funky light-up disco ball for them to use at their next pool party!
Pool Cleaning and Maintenance Equipment
Though it may not sound as glamorous as some of the other gift ideas we’ve already mentioned, a pool cleaning and maintenance gift would be extremely thoughtful and practical for any pool owner. This could include pool test kits, chemicals, skimmers, brushes, or even a pool vacuum. If you do plan to buy test kits or chemicals, make sure you know whether your friend’s pool is a chlorine or saltwater pool as it can make a difference in the types of chemicals and tests they’ll be able to use.
Pool owners love getting gifts that will make their time around the pool with friends and family even better. Whether you choose to give decorations, organization tools, floats, fitness equipment, entertainment accessories, games, lighting options, or maintenance solutions, your gift is likely to be a big hit with that special pool owner in your life. If you’re a pool owner, be sure to let your friends and family know how much you’d like to receive some of the items mentioned on this list this upcoming holiday season.
