holiday gift guide for hot tubs

Jingle bells, jingle bells - do you hear 'em? The holiday season is upon us, which means thoughtful friends (like you) are making shopping lists of gifts for friends and family.

Since you're reading this, we're guessing you're probably a hot tub owner. If so, this means you likely know others who also belong to "The Hot Tub Club." A gift that helps them enjoy their spa is the perfect way to show you care about their health and well-being.

If you're ready to start shopping, Hot Tub Works has you covered! We have gifts for all the hot tub owners on your gift list, and they're priced to fit any holiday shopping budget. Let Santa take a break. It's your time to shine as the ultimate gift giver this year!

To tell the truth, these gifts are great for any special occasion - not just the holidays. Here are 10 ideas to get you started:

Aromatherapy Products

There are so many forms of spa aromatherapy - crystals, elixirs, spa beads and even scented spa shock. They all make great gifts or stocking stuffers, and they're quite affordable. If you've never tried aromatherapy in the hot tub before, you really should. Aside from the enriching aromatic experience, each product provides uniquely focused relaxation for the user. Whether refreshing the mind or rejuvenating the body, there's an aromatherapy solution for every need or occasion. All natural ingredients and the perfect blend of moisturizing botanicals promise to soften skin, relieve stress, reduce inflammation and soothe aches and pains. These products are perfectly safe for spa surfaces and won't clog jets.

Waterproof Playing Cards

Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? These waterproof playing cards go great with a floating game table, or they can be used all by themselves. Durable PVC material makes the cards completely waterproof without being too stiff to shuffle. This is a full deck of 52 regularly-sized playing cards, which comes in its own plastic carrying case. These cards are excellent for hot tubbers relaxing with others in the spa, but they also work quite well in a swimming pool setting. Give the gift that provides hours of fun for any age group!

Filter Flosser

If you've owned a hot tub for any amount of time, you know how time consuming it can be to clean a hot tub filter. With a Filter Flosser, that chore can be done in just minutes. Not only will it save the gift recipient a ton of time on regular hot tub maintenance, but it will also conserve water and prolong the life of their filter cartridges. The powerful, precise stream of water goes deep between filter pleats to provide a simple, efficient cleaning experience.

Spa Ozonator

Here's a gift that's sure to please! Spa ozone systems are a simple, yet effective way to rid a hot tub of bacteria, viruses and other organic contaminants. If the person you're buying for has a newer hot tub, chances are pretty good that it already has an ozone system built in. However, if the hot tub is more than a few years old, an ozonator will likely be a welcome addition. Spa ozonators reduce the need for sanitizing chemicals, and they leave behind no residues or harsh by-products, making this a great option for people with sensitive skin. They also pair perfectly with mineral sanitizers.

Spa Cover Lifter

Many people who own a spa already have (and use) a spa cover lifter. However, if someone on your gift list doesn't yet have a cover lift, or if they need to replace their old, rusty one, Hot Tub Works has the perfect gift you've been searching for. A spa cover lift is a gift of convenience, making it possible for anyone to open a heavy spa cover by themselves. It also helps prevent damage to the cover while it's off the tub. Lightweight aluminum and sturdy steel cover lifts are available to accommodate most spa covers, large or small.

Lighted Napa Bottle Chiller

This gift will be the talk of the holiday party, as well as every hot tub party after that! This unique wine and beverage chiller is illuminated by color-changing LED lights. Choose from 24 colors, 4 color-changing settings and 2 brightness levels at the touch of a button. The rechargeable battery provides 8-10 hours of lighted entertainment, making it perfect for parties and get-togethers. The weatherproof design allows it to be used outdoors or indoors - it's up to you! Just add ice, add your favorite canned or bottled beverages, turn on the light, and it's ready to go.

Insulating Spa Blanket

A floating thermal spa blanket is an inexpensive gift that can save any hot tub owner a chunk of change. The most notable benefit is that it prolongs the life of a spa cover by blocking chemicals and water vapor from gassing off and absorbing into the cover. This blanket also increases a spa's efficiency by locking in the heat. This lightweight thermal blanket is easy to put on and remove, and it comes in two convenient square sizes: 7'x7' or 8'x8'. If the spa isn't perfectly square, simply trim the blanket with scissors to match any custom shape.

Spa Care Kits

Looking for a gift that just keeps giving? Surprise the hot tub owner on your shopping list with a spa care kit. There are 6-month maintenance kits for both chlorine and bromine users, multi-packs of scented spa shock, a spa cover care kit, floating sanitizer systems and cartridge refills, as well as all-inclusive spa start-up kits. We even have a kit for spa owners struggling with hard water issues. Just place a spa care kit in a wicker basket, add a gift bow or some colorful tissue paper, and give the gift of worry-free hot tub maintenance this year. Spa care kits also make fun "teaser" gifts if you'll be surprising a loved one with their very own hot tub this holiday season.

Cantilever Umbrella

While soaking in a toasty hot tub, the last thing anyone wants to do is bake in the sun - especially when the weather gets warmer. This is why many hot tubs are located in shaded areas or under some type of roof or overhang. However, there are quite a few spas that don't have that optimal placement, which is where offset cantilever umbrellas, also known as market umbrellas, come in handy. Hot Tub Works has two styles available - one is a 10' umbrella with a metal plate that slides under your hot tub (3 colors available), and the other is a 9' umbrella that can be bolted down or attached to a sturdy base (12 colors available). Market umbrellas also work well for patio tables and seating areas.

Infrared Sauna

We saved the best for last! Imagine the look on your loved one's face when you surprise them with a brand new in-home sauna. The growing list of sauna benefits is simply incredible. Besides soaking in a hot tub, there really is no better way to relax your muscles, detoxify your body and unwind at the end of the day. It's not just a sauna - it's a valuable wellness tool and is often considered a health investment. From extravagant 4-person infrared saunas to the less expensive single user or portable models, there's a relaxation station for every budget.

Not finding what you're looking for? There are so many other great hot tub gifts available in our online store. Another idea is to provide a "personal spa service" of sorts, helping the hot tub people on your list drain and clean the spa and/or condition the cover. Other ideas include an outdoor carpet or wood runners to help keep feet clean, new spa towels and a towel rack, or you could even spice things up by adding some music to their spa area with a waterproof outdoor Bluetooth speaker. It's not too hard to find the perfect gift. The options are endless! If you need more ideas, check out another one of our popular hot tub gift guides: Great Gifts for Hot Tubbers.

From all of us at Hot Tub Works, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
