The Holiday Playbook: 5 Gifts That Any Swimmer Will Actually Use

A swimmer needs more than just goggles and a swimsuit. Here are five gifts you can treat your favorite swimmer to this holiday season.

Any time you’re on vacation with friends or family, there is usually one person who just has to get in a few laps in the pool before they can fully relax with you.

This holiday season, lean into their healthy habits with these five gifts to make any swim session easier, better, and possibly, even more effective.

When they start to shave a few milliseconds off their personal records, they may even thank you.

To make any swimmer’s life ten times easier, let us put you on to High & Dry’s Ponchowel. A combination of a poncho and a towel, it’s the perfect way to dry up after a swim. Whether they’ll be wearing it from the pool to the shower or all the way back home, the ponchowel will definitely be a staple in their swim bag from now on.

2. Speedo Slogan Print Cap

Here’s the thing about swim caps: over time, they almost always manage to rip right down the middle. So no swimmer can have too many extra swim caps in their arsenal. Bonus points if you choose one with a fun print to make them stand out in the water.

3. JBL Endurance DIVE

For the swimmer in your life who loves to go long distances, get them a pair of JBL Endurance DIVEs. Made for swimming, these headphones are waterproof and have a built-in MP3 player so they can load their playlists into it before hitting the pool.

4. TYR Big Mesh Mummy Backpack

Contrary to what one might think, swimmers actually carry a lot of equipment to the pool—a kickboard, a pull buoy, fins, paddles, goggles, a water bottle, and more. The TYR Big Mesh Mummy Backpack will be the last bag they need to take to the pool because it’ll fit everything they need.

5. Garmin Venu Sq 2

For the swimmer in your life that you really want to spoil, get them a new smartwatch they can wear to the pool, like the Garmin Venu Sq 2. Among its many features, they’ll surely love the water resistance, heart rate monitor, and health tracker the most.
