If you have a pool, and you’re a mom, you probably spend a large portion of time either at the pool side or in the pool supervising the kids. I know I do. And since Mother’s Day is just two days away, I thought a list of nice things for Mom to use pool side would be fun. And if you need a gift idea for Mom, maybe this will help.
An Automatic Pool Cleaner
Who cleans your pool? When I was younger it was my mom. She would spend a few hours every Saturday morning scrubbing and vacuuming our pool. All the while my brother and I were impatiently watching and waiting for her to be done (notice our lack of helping). I’m willing to bet that she really liked the Kreepy Krauly we eventually decided to purchase. So if the mom at your house cleans the pool, and she digs practical gifts, this might be the way to go. If you’re wondering what pool cleaner would be best, check out the blog article about just that.
A Space for Mom!
Give Mom a space of her own by the pool! If money is no object I recommend a cabana. I think the bar in the picture is a nice touch. Just don’t forget to stock it. Premier Fiberglass can design and build a cabana, pergola or gazebo just for your mom if you so desire. We can also design an outdoor kitchen or fireplace if your mom likes to entertain and spend her free time outdoors. Let Mom sit down and put up her feet while the rest of the family whips up a tasty meal.
For those of us who are on a smaller budget, maybe Mom would like a chair that is all her own and super comfy. I think I’d like some really nice, fluffy, quality towels. And if they were white, I could even pretend I was at a spa resort, and that those hollering kids belonged to someone else. But I digress. And as long as we’re making a space for me, I mean Mom, to lounge by the pool and feel like a queen, how about a garden or patio mister to keep cool. These handy things make those hot afternoons not quite so hot. Or a nice patio umbrella that can do double duty for the picnic table for outdoor dining and entertaining, and always look great by a pool. Any way you go, I’m sure Mom will feel appreciated in a space lovingly put together for her.
Mom’s in the Pool!
Is your mom always in the pool, either with the kids or for fitness? Maybe Mom would appreciate a pool lounger, and if it’s big enough, she could even have some snuggles with the kids while floating. Or have a relaxing solo float after the kids are in bed. Does Mom like to swim laps? Maybe some new goggles or even a swimming tether would be appreciated. Celebrate Mother’s Day with a family game of water volleyball, or a water fight.
Whatever you choose to do, be sure to tell Mom that you love her. Because, really, that’s all we moms really want for Mother’s Day.
