We’re making our lists and checking them twice, because ready or not, the holidays are coming. It’s the perfect time of year to give the swimmer on your list something they’ll really love, like new training gear and accessories.
As a former competitive swimmer in my youth and long-time Masters Swimmer myself, here are eight gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to any swimmer this holiday!
1) Arena Powerkin Carbon Air LE – Arena’s newest print, with the latest technology, the Arena Powerskin Carbon Air LE is at the top of my list. I think any swimmer would agree that a tech suit is one of the best gifts ever!
2) FINIS Glide Swimmer’s Swim Snorkel – Give the gift of proper body positioning and breath control — they’ll thank you later! The FINIS Glide Swimmer’s Swim Snorkel comes in fun colors and fits perfectly in a standard size stocking!
3) Speedo Teamster Backpack – Everyone’s favorite swim bag, you can’t go wrong with the Speedo Teamster Backpack! I’m always amazed at how much I can fit in here.
4) Dolfin Kickball – The Kickball is a multi-use training tool that makes a fun add-on gift for any swimmer who’s looking to hone in on their technique. Plus its multi-functional and not too large, making it great for travel!
5) Arena Python Mirrored Goggle – The Python goggle, the newest style from Arena, is equal parts comfort and style. Any swimmer would be lucky to unwrap these and who doesn’t need a new pair of goggles?
6) Waterfi 2GB iPod Shuffle Waterproof Swim Kit with Swim Active Headphones – A gift that rocks (literally)! The Waterfi iPod Shuffle is the perfect gift for any level of swimmer, to help them jam through their laps. I love having music break up the monotony of some of my sets.
7) Garmin Fenix 5S Sapphire Multi-Sport Watch – Give them a gift that does it all! The Fenix is the latest multi-sport watch from Garmin that allows swimmers to track, train and time themselves in and out of the pool. The best part? It’s compatible with Swim.com, the world’s most advanced swim tracker!
8) TYR Training Suit – Wrap up one of TYR’s newest prints, and gift them a best-selling training swimsuit! There are so many style options so there’s something for everyone!
