Buying Christmas and birthday gifts for friends and family members can be hard, particularly if they have reached the stage in life where if they want something they can just buy it without having to wait.

Buying gifts for people with pools are no exception to this but at least there are a wealth of things you can buy them that they may not have considered to make their pool more fun or make maintaining it easier.

I know my wife gets annoyed when she asks me what I want and I say “nothing” but the truth is if I need something I buy it – well I “need” a Porsche but so far I haven’t bought that.

I have divided these gift ideas for pool owners into inexpensive gifts, expensive gifts, plus gifts for men, women, children and the family dog.

gifts for pool owners

Inexpensive pool gifts

Pool signs

There are many different pool signs available. Some are funny and others set out the pool rules. You can even buy personalized pool signs. See a selection of pool signs on Amazon.

No pool owner ever has enough pool inflatables and they are available to suit all budgets. There is a great selection of pool inflatables on Amazon.

3 Pack Inflatable Pool Floats Hammock,Water Hammock Lounger, Multi-Purpose 4-in-1 Swimming Water Floating Rafts (Blue&Navy&Rose)

These floating hammocks are great and very popular as, unlike many inflatables where you lie on top of the water, with these, you float but your body stays under the water keeping you cool.

Floating Drink Holders

One of the most popular is the Diveblast Premium Floating Drink Holder which can also hold snacks as well as glasses, cans or even bottles.

Pool Cleaning Course

If you are buying a gift for a new pool owner who is just learning about how to maintain it then a great gift would be the best pool care handbook and video course available.

The Swim University course is recognized as the best available. I bought it some years ago and it has paid for itself many times over.
