Quick Gift guide:
A Multi towel/ a sports towel- This is a towel that is super good at absorbing water. As a person who swims nearly all day in the summer, these are great to have during the summer because they will keep your towel relatively dry. Same goes for those who have winter meets. You can
use this Multi towel to absorb all the moisture you picked up from your race and then use your towel to keep warm. This little guy ranges from 10 to 15 dollars.
New pair of googles- sometimes they crack or break during the season. Always great to have a spare. Make sure to check in with a swimmer to see what they specifically want in their goggles. Tinted, anti-fog, there is a huge variety so inquire before you buy.
Go for the grab bag- Grab bags are great because you get quality suits at a fairly cheap price. The only thing is you don't know is what kind of print you will end up purchasing. You usually get a funky print at a very affordable price.
I’m going to take the next two weeks off, so I will speak to you all in the new year! Stay swimming and stay happy!
