No matter how old you are, swimming pools can be lots of fun- especially with the right accessories!
Whether it’s a housewarming gift for someone who just moved into a home with a pool or a birthday present for a swimming enthusiast, these great items will make fantastic – and fun – gifts; especially if you are hoping to get invited to their next pool party!
1. Floating Speakers
No party is ever really complete without music, and pool parties are no different. However, it can be a challenge – and potentially dangerous – to get speakers close to the pool.
New technology has made water-resistant, floating speakers possible, and they’ve become the extremely popular for those looking to bring music pool-side. Battery operated, they will keep the tunes around the water without the worry of tripping over electrical wires or having to get out of the pool to change the volume.
Another essential element for every party, coolers keep the cold drinks easily at hand so you don’t have to walk through the kitchen while soaking wet! The RiverRough Company has come out with the Cooler Raft, which is essentially a cooler on an inner tube, with four built-in four cup holders. The strong vinyl handles and rope ties which secure the raft to prevent tipping makes this a great gift for anyone from pool owners to cottage goers.
3. Sonoma Chaise Loungers
Made of a solid foam and covered with waterproof PVC rattan, the Chaise Loungers are another poolside must-have. They can be used in or out of the water and fold up for easy storage, making them ideal for those without much yard space.
4. Color Changing Fountain
This floating fountain is a fun and unique present sure to get a great response. With no special plumbing or wiring required, it shoots illuminated plumes of water up to 16 feet high and includes three lighting options: red, yellow, and blue. A variety of pattern presets are available to help you create a funky – or romantic – atmosphere. Easy to install, these fountains operate under water pressure along for a safe and novel addition to any pool.
5. Underwater Lights
If you’re looking for a gift that will set the tone for a pool party, rotating pattern coloured LED lights are sure to be a hit, not matter what the age of the person receiving it. Accessories like this can be widely found online and usually come in several water-proof, battery-operated options. Essentially they’re tennis ball-sized clear globes that sit on the bottom of the pool and emit various colours when turned on. Unfortunately, this means they have to be manually retrieved at the end of each night, but if somebody is willing to take the plunge, they’re well worth it!
You can never have enough poolside entertainment. The next time you have to think of a unique and fun present for a friend or family member, try one of these fun water additions!
