Christmas Gifts for Outdoor Swimmers

There is not long to go until the big day, so we thought we'd help you out with a some great gift ideas for wild swimmers.  We have put together some gift inspiration for outdoor swimmers from our shop and a couple of our favourite small businesses.

Festive Swim Hat

Look like a pudding in a fabulous Christmas Pudding silicone swim hat from Cool Bathing.

We have recently added these sip lid flasks from Hydro Flask to the shop and they are proving very popular.  They keep your drink so hot that it is worth remembering to add a little cool water before you take it on your swim.  They are available in a huge range of colours.
