Not everyone lives in a climate that requires closing the backyard swimming pool at some point in the year. In fact, many of our southern friends are probably reading this blog poolside while soaking in the warm rays of the sun. Before you step away from the computer to top off your iced tea or fruity beverage, consider adding a couple of sure-to-please pool gifts to your holiday giving plans this year. Your pool-loving family and friends will get the pleasure of enjoying them right away, and you’ll be done with your shopping all the sooner.
Here are just a few ideas that always bring big smiles and even bigger fun:
1. Remote controlled water soaker
2. Floating basketball game
3. Mermaid swim fin
4. Starfighter pool float
Even if you don’t live in a warmer climate and you’re reading this snuggled up by the glow of your fireplace, you will still bring a thrill to your pool-loving friends and family members with these gifts. They can look forward to using their new pool gear when swimming pool season rolls around again, and the anticipation might just inspire them to help you with pool-opening tasks this time. An unexpected gift for you, too!
Now is a great time to make sure that your swimming pool signs are up to date. Use them to post pool or spa rules, add humor for your guests, or state that your pool is closed for the season. Here are a few of our favorites!

Mine is a remote controlled boat. Remote controlled boats are fun for everyone, they don’t require athletic ability, and they can be enjoyed no matter if you are hanging out in the water or lounging poolside.
A favorite choice among pool owners is the boat that doubles as a skimmer. Remote controlled pool skimmers make the clean up of leaves and surface debris a fun activity rather than a chore. Additionally, it’s easy to create your own games with a remote controlled pool skimmer and score points with every bit of debris collected.
Another fun remote controlled boat resembles a flying saucer and squirts water at the touch of a button. You can surprise an unsuspecting friend with a stream of water shot from twenty feet away — just be sure your friend is a good sport.

Whether for one child or a party full, you can find something that will please. Click on the links below for more information on each great choice! Many more are available at BackyardcityPools.com.
