If you have been thinking about getting your family a swimming pool, Christmas may be the perfect time to make this purchase. A swimming pool is the ultimate gift for kids and adults of all ages. Instantly, you can turn your backyard into a fun place where your kids want to be! Plus, swimming is one of the best physical workouts.
Since you’ll have to wait to have your pool installed, you may be wondering how you can surprise your family with the gift of a pool. Here are some ideas for sharing the news with your loved ones on Christmas.
Frame a Picture of the Pool
If you have an idea or blueprint for your upcoming pool project, frame it and present it to your family on Christmas morning. If you’re not sure of the pool design, any pool picture will do. You can also make a collage of the ideas you have for your backyard oasis using pictures of pools, outdoor fireplaces, patio furniture and more.
Give Everyone their Own Pool Toy
Another fun idea is to give each person in the family their very own pool toy. For example, moms love comfy floating lounge chairs with a sun shade. The kids will enjoy pool toys like beach balls and pool noodles. And dads, well, they’re never disappointed in inflatable beverage holders, floating bars and volleyball nets.
Put Together Pool Gift Baskets
If you want to give more than a single item to your loved ones, put together pool-themed gift baskets. Include all the pool essentials such as an embroidered beach towel, sunglasses, flip flops and sunscreen. By the time summer rolls around, everyone will have what they need to swim.
Wrap a Piece of Pool Equipment
Stop at a pool shop and purchase a piece of pool equipment that you’ll need for the pool, such as LED lights or a cleaning kit. When your family opens it up, they’ll discover their real gift – a custom inground pool!
Create a Scavenger Hunt
You can also take your family on a scavenger hunt to find out what their Christmas present is. Start by leaving clues around the home that eventually lead everyone to the ultimate gift: the pool. At the end of the scavenger hunt, you can use one of the gift ideas above to share the news, such as a framed picture or piece of pool equipment.
