10 Fun Gifts for Pool Owners



Friends having fun at a pool party

Pool owners love spending time in their swimming pools with family and friends. It’s the season of giving, so now is the perfect time to show your favorite pool owner some love with waterproof gifts everyone can enjoy! From personalized décor and fun pool floats to practical backyard additions, here are 10 pool-themed presents you can give someone this year.

1. Pool Floats

What better way to relax in the pool than floating on a lounger or tube? There’s a wide variety of pool floats to choose from including the traditional pool lounge and fun inflatable tubes such as a dinosaur or an avocado float that includes a beach ball! You can also opt for a higher-end lounger or a luxurious floating lounge chair for ultimate comfort.

2. Personalized Swimming Pool Décor

Pool owners take pride in their poolscape, so give them something sentimental that’s made specially for their backyard. Add some flair with a personalized pool sign or deck plaque. You can also find personalized pool towels they can use any time of the year!

3. Pool Games and Toys

Bring classic games like cornhole and volleyball to the pool for some extra fun. It isn’t a pool day without some splashing, so don’t forget the squirt guns. Want something for the kids? Try a ring toss game or an inflatable basketball hoop. There’s a pool game out there for everyone to enjoy!

4. Pool Goggles

Help keep your friend or family member’s eyes safe from the chlorine with a new pair of swim goggles! If your favorite pool owner regularly uses their pool to work out, there are smart swim goggles available that include guided workouts and real-time swim metrics so they can track their performance via a one-time gift membership.

5. Aquatic Exercise Equipment

Is the pool owner into fitness or water aerobics? You can’t go wrong with a pair of aquatic dumbbells or even a fitness kickboard for a convenient workout in the pool. If they enjoy running but not the heat of the summer, gift them an aqua jogger which lets them float upright while running in place. Add some ankle weights to the mix for extra resistance.

6. Patio Umbrella

After a long afternoon of splashing around in the pool, taking a break in the shade is a must. A patio umbrella is a stylish and practical addition to your friend or family’s backyard that will offer instant relief from the sun’s rays.

7. Pool Party Supplies

We all know that one pool owner who throws amazing pool parties. Add to their pool party accessories with everything from floating snack and drink trays to beverage coolers and even floating color-changing LED lights to keep the party going all night long!

8. Automatic Pool Cleaner

There’s no better gift than time! Maintaining a clean pool takes a lot of time and energy between manually collecting debris and scrubbing the pool’s floors, walls and waterline. If you’re feeling generous this holiday season, an automatic pool cleaner is a perfect gift to help them take the hassle out of pool cleaning.

9. Pool Accessory Storage

It’s easy to accumulate a plethora of pool accessories with limited space to store everything. Help your favorite pool owner keep their pool toys, towels and floats organized with a storage deck box or a mountable towel rack.

10. Poolside Chaises

Every pool owner could use some poolside chaises beside their pool to soak up some sun or take a nap on after a long day in the pool. Plus, these loungers can serve as additional seating, so everyone is comfortable.
