In The Swim Holiday Pool Toys Gift Guide

Winter Holidays are a great time to surprise the people on your shopping list with pool toys and floats. For one, it’s probably the last thing they’d expect, and second, now is the time to take advantage of In The Swim’s Winter Holiday Sale!

Great floats like the Giant Swan or Alligator look hilarious next to a tree overflowing with gifts and can also be timely for the family winter vacation to a sunny beach or pool.

Giant Animals Floats 

Floats like the Giant Flamingo, Pegasus, or Swan lend an air of elegance to your pool, ambiance  even? Kids and teens just flip for these fun pool inflatables. Pool gifts just make a natural and fun addition to a stack of gifts – even if your pool is closed for winter!

From giant inflatable rubber ducks to sharks, and  unicorns to parrots, there’s a giant animal ride-on float for everyone.

Naughty or Slice?

If giant animal riders aren’t your thing, maybe you’re a bit of a foodie? With 7 kids growing up, it was always tough for my folks to buy something to make each kid happy and even harder to buy something that we all could enjoy together.

The Giant Pizza Slice Float is great because each slice can connect to another to make a giant pizza, or half pizza – depending on how many slices are in your home.

Everybody loves pizza and this pizza slice float, plus nobody can argue about what’s on it when you are the topping!
