‘Tis the season to be thinking about holiday gifts for your loved ones.  Instead of fighting the crowds at shopping centres, look no further than a swimming pool.  There are many reasons a swimming pool makes an awesome gift.  Let’s look at the top ten reasons why:

  1. It’s the gift that keeps on giving

With some gifts, like toys, computers, or apparel, it may last a few years at best before becoming worn out or obsolete.  And while trips are nice gifts, it’s a one-time experience.  With a swimming pool, it’s an investment that you can enjoy for many, many years to come.  Each time you have a fun, memorable experience in your swimming pool, it’s like receiving another gift.

  1. The smile on your family’s face

A swimming pool is a pretty amazing gift.  Imagine the look on your family’s face when they learn they will have their very own swimming pool!  That is a smile you’ll remember for a lifetime.

  1. You’ll be in the running for “Parent of the Year”

There are a lot of fantastic gifts out there, but not a lot compare to the fun and joy of a swimming pool in your backyard becoming a reality.

  1. It’s a gift for your family…but you get to enjoy it too

Most of the time when you give a gift, it’s only for the other person to enjoy.  With a pool, not only do your loved ones get to enjoy it, but you get to reap the benefits too.  So really it’s an opportunity to give yourself a gift as well.

  1. It’s memorable, and creates memories too

Your family isn’t likely to forget the moment they received a swimming pool as a holiday gift.  In addition to the fond memory of finding out they’ll get to enjoy their very own swimming pool, swimming pools also create amazing memories that last a lifetime.  Swimming pools are a great way to bring family and friends together.

  1. It’s more than just a gift or possession

A swimming pool is more than just a “thing.”  It’s an experience.  Think of all the fun times ahead you’ll have, being able to relax and unwind by the pool, enjoying your own personal oasis right outside your door.

  1. It’s less expensive than a pony, and less maintenance than a puppy

Many parents have that child that asks Santa for a pony every single Christmas.  A pony is not only expensive to buy, but expensive to keep up with between farrier and vet care, food, and board.  While a puppy is less expensive, it’s still a lot of maintenance.  Although pools require maintenance, you’ll find it’s far less than toilet training a puppy.  And with a pool, you can leave it by itself during the day and on weekends instead of having to arrange a kennel.

  1. It’s not just a pool, it’s giving the gift of health too

Swimming pools are a great way to encourage healthy, active lifestyles in kids.  It helps encourage kids to get outdoors and swim.  And it’s not just for kids!  Swimming is a great way for adults to stay healthy and active too.

  1. It’s a gift that can increase your property value

A swimming pool can increase your property value so that you can rest assured that your holiday gift is economically helpful.  Studies show that pools can increase your property value by 7.5% or more.

  1. Future gift giving will be much easier

Is it hard to figure out what to get your family for holiday gifts?  Once you have a swimming pool in place, the possibilities are endless—and easy.  For kids, pool toys and pool games are great, while for adults there are landscaping and decorative ideas.
