With Thanksgiving in our rear-view mirror and Christmas approaching, the time to get your holiday shopping finished is drawing near. If you’re anything like my mother, you refuse to step into any mall, at any time, for anything after Thanksgiving. She prefers the luxury of ordering online and skipping out on the massive lines and grumpy shoppers. Besides all of that, the worst part for me is trying to find a gift for a relative who seemingly has everything. (We all know one and if you don’t, you’re probably the relative) Well, if they own a pool, this blog might help.
Very few people consider gifts for the pool when they think of Christmas. Over at Inyo Pools, we’ve complied a list of great holiday gifts for the pool owner in your family. Not only are pool gifts fun, they are also unique. Our gift ideas range in category and price to fit everyone’s budget. Let’s explore some cool holiday gifts. Feel free to give us a call if you have any more ideas to add to our list.
Pool Toys/ Floats
Although this may seem like the most obvious thing to purchase for a pool- who cares! It is also the gifts that never goes wrong. Why, you ask? One of the cool things about swimming pools is the fact that it’s made for the family. All ages can be included with proper safety. The same thing can be said about pool toys and floats. Although there may be an age minimum to certain toys, there’s definitely no age old enough where the pool is no longer relaxing and fun. And what’s a pool with no toys?
Yes, you can go to Walmart and pick up pool noodles there as well. Yes, they may be slightly cheaper, but the quality also reflects the price. Our box of regular pool noodles have proven to be durable, reliable, safe, and resistant to chemicals and water absorption. Pool noodles can be used for leisure or for exercising purposes. They’re great for play in and out of the pool. They can hold up to bending and splashing and pretty much whatever your kids can throw at them.
Who doesn’t love to lay back and relax in the pool every now and then? If we’re being honest with each, I am not the best floater. There is nothing relaxing about my floating. I need something that’s going to be comfortable enough to where I’m not worried whether I’m going to tip over or not. The Spring Float Recliner does just that. It has a head and foot rest for maximum relaxation
The Sea Saw Rocker is one of the largest inflatable pool toys we offer at a whopping 90 inches in length. This product comes highly recommended from several of our Inyo staff, all with rave reviews from previous customers. Be warned- this rocker is large
Most of my family and friends use the holidays to surprise loved ones with lavish and thoughtful gifts. However, I also have some family members who use the holidays as a time to give us something we need, rather than what we want. A healthy balance of needs and wants is always appreciated. If you happen to be one of those family members, automatic pool cleaners might be a great mix of want and need. Automatic pool cleaners makes cleaning the pool a lot faster and a lot easier. Here are our top pool cleaner gift ideas.
If you’ve never believed that cleaning could be fun, you’ve never seen the Jet RC skimmer boat in action. This speed boat jets around your pool, picking up leaves, bugs, seeds, or anything else that may be on the surface. It comes with a rechargeable battery that operates up to five hours. It’s fun, but it also encourages the kids to be a part of maintaining your pool.
This is one of our most popular pool cleaners for many reasons. The Pool Cleaner is a patented 2/4 drive, which means it has the robust and the power to overcome obstacles that normally stop other cleaners. If it encounters an object, the skirts lifts up over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner. In other words, it’s a pretty cool cleaner. There is a limited edition black version that is available, too.
The Polaris 360 is unique because it’s one of the few pressure-side automatic pool cleaner that operates without a separate booster pump. It connects to the pressure line in your pool and is suitable for all in ground pools. The special edition black version is ideal for pools with dark bottoms. Everything is included for immediate use. It sweeps, scrubs, and vacuums the bottom, walls, and steps of all pool surfaces.
Have a family member who claims to have everything? Well, ask them if they have a sauna.
Why drive miles from home just to sit and relax in a sauna with complete strangers when you can enjoy the experience right at home? Bring the sauna right to your backyard with the Buena Vista single person sauna.
