Gifts for Swimmers #1 – Swim Lessons

If your child loves to swim, why not gift them swim lessons? We love swimming at Aqua-Tots because my kids can swim year-round in their 90 degree pool! Swimming year round helps so much with skill retention, too. (Check out this post on the benefits of year-round swim lessons for more info.) Plus, it gives the kids something to look forward to during those cold winter months!

For kids who already take swim lessons, consider asking family members/friends to contribute to an extra day of lessons, a private lesson, a special camp, etc. as a gift idea. It’s something your child will love and it won’t clutter up your house! That’s the main reason why I love gifting “experience gifts.” I even wrote The Ultimate List of Experience Gifts for Kids a couple years ago!

Gifts for Swimmers #2 – Swimwear

Swimsuits and trunks can wear out quickly, especially when kids are swimming year-round. Plus, it can be tricky to find the next size up in-store when your kid outgrows swimwear in the middle of winter. Avoid that problem by surprising your favorite swimmer with some new swimwear to brighten up their next pool time!

Gifts for Swimmers #3 – Goggles

You can never have too many pairs of goggles, especially if your kids are swimming multiple times per week. These are our favorite goggles; both of my kids wear them. I like that they snap closed in the back, so there’s no yanking hair out to get them on and off.

Gifts for Swimmers #4 – Water Bottle

Swimming is intense exercise! It’s important for your children to stay hydrated before and after their time in the water. Make hydrating easier with a fun water bottle!

You can even make a little project out of it by selecting a plain water bottle and some waterproof stickers, then let your child decorate the bottle to make it their very own. (Bonus: They’ll be able to easily identify their one-of-a-kind bottle, meaning they won’t end up swapping water bottles–and germs–with others.) If you go that route, I highly recommend this water bottle. Colton’s been using it daily for school and sports for over a year and it’s been great at keeping the water cold!

Gifts for Swimmers #5 – Personalized Towel

Swimmers go through a lot of towels. Why not gift your swimmer with their very own personalized towel? Some of the designs are so cute that I want one for myself!
