Arvidson Pools and Spas

The secret to giving the perfect gift is in choosing something related to the recipient’s life, hobbies, or passions.  So, if you are seeking the perfect gift for water lovers – swimmers or hot tubbers – look no further than your local swimming pool and spa store. You’ll find for a variety of thoughtful, playful, and useful gifts.   Here are some ideas:


Dry Case Protection

We know it can be difficult to pry digital devices out of the hands of many.  For those who just can’t break away, a DryCase for their Smartphone or iPad is the perfect solution for protecting their devices while still enjoying a soak in the hot tub or perhaps some underwater selfies!

Backyard Decor

Those who have a pool or hot tub in their backyard generally spend more time near and in them.  Help them create a festive atmosphere with colorful signs, flags and doormats.  These cheerful designs are sure to put a smile on their face!

Pool Inflatables & Beach Blankets

Large inflatable swans, unicorns, and flamingos debuted in swimming pools in droves this past summer.  Kids love the large sizes and fun shapes and moms love making their kids happy!   In addition to these unique inflatables, another big hit are large cookie, cupcake, and strawberry shaped beach blankets.  Whether you use them at the beach or the pool, the colorful patterns and large size make them crowd pleasers!

Pool Floats

There are pool floats and then there are POOL FLOATS!  The latter type is made from sturdy, heavy duty fabric that won’t puncture and provides a soft surface for lazy days floating in the pool.  Another popular float is the Super Soft float from Texas Recreation.  These provide buoyancy without inflation and are super long-lasting!

Pool Toys

From waterproof cards and checker sets to basketball sets and noodles, you can find a wide selection of choices for all ages.  These toys make pool time extra fun for kids and provide that added element of playfulness to the annual Memorial Day or Independence Day pool party.

Skincare Products

Although we don’t always associate a pool store with skincare, the sun and water can have a drying effect on skin and it is wise to protect it.  Arvidson Pools & Spas features a selection of Naked Bee skincare products from hand & body lotion to lip balms.  They also carry a complete line of NoAd sunscreen products at a variety of SPF protections.  These products make great stocking stuffers!

Spa Scents

Turn a hot tub into an aromatherapy experience with InSparation scents in both liquid, crystals, and new this year, spa bombs!  These product are sometimes overlooked by hot tub owners but can bring a whole new experience to winter weather soaking.

Perfect for Dog Owners

Arvidson Pools & Spas is a pet-friendly business!  Many of our customers own dogs and often bring them into the store where they always get a free treat from our retail team!  Are you buying for a dog lover?  We have a selection of handmade collars, scarves, and leashes available in addition to unique saucers and pet bowls.  We also sell freshly made dog treats from The Pound located in Harvard, Illinois.  These tasty treats are very popular!
