Hey guys. Guess what? CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Have you finished your shopping? I haven’t. Unfortunately, most of the gifts I need to buy are not for swimmers or triathletes. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t have a great time browsing the holiday gift guide from SwimOutlet.com. They have a great array of gift suggestions in a number of categories and price ranges.
Need some suggestions? Well, here are my personal favorites. First off, for the wacky swimmer or triathlete who spends way too many early mornings at the pool.
When I first started swimming for fitness, I bought a black bathing suit. I did not want to draw attention to myself. I figured I did enough of that with my splashing and flailing. Thankfully, I’ve gotten over myself and this winter, will be sporting this fabulous suit at the pool. I love fun Christmas sweaters and this suit is FABULOUS. And encompasses my love of snow. Plus it can be worn well into the new year. (Of course, if you prefer something Christmas specific, there’s also a suit styled after a Santa suit.) And who can resist pairing it with a silly swim cap. We all know that training sucks up our social lives.
(Hey, maybe I can meet a fellow over-scheduled triathlete at the pool thanks to this cute suit.)
Okay, okay. So you want to go more practical but don’t want to spend a ton of money.
How about some fins or other training accessories and a pair of goggles? Every swimmer I know has at least three pairs of goggles in their swim bag and still manages to forget them when they go to the pool. As an aside, I really like Sporti brand swim accessories. I have a kickboard from them as well and it’s incredibly sturdy and buying it didn’t break the bank.
And though I purchased swim-related items from SwimOutlet, they aren’t just swim focused. They know that a number of their customers are triathletes, so they have clothing and gear for running and triathlon as well. Check out their holiday gift guide and pick up a few gifts for your friends or maybe something for yourself.
See you at the pool!
