This is our selection of gifts for your those who are in love with life, who are active and restless, who swim or just thinking about it. Our gifts will help you to bring something new in the life of your loved ones.
X-WATERS Swim Slot
Let’s start with the most interesting, because a swim slot is always a good gift for a swimmer. Diving in the New Year with an adventure ticket in your pocket — sounds very intriguing! How to get a slot as a gift:
Just buy a slot — if you know everything about the plans and capabilities of your loved one and if you are sure that the swim fits (dates, location etc.). Choose any swim at x-waters.com and tick the box «It’s a gift».
Or buy a gift certificate — to choose the swim later or to get additional options (insurance, t-shirts, buoys, hotel accommodation, etc.).
Another book is never too much
The right words and ideas can sometimes change a person’s life. The well-known publishing house Mann, Ivanov and Ferber is a space of development and confidence that books can change both people and the world. Interesting reading for your free time:
Eat and Run. My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness.(Scott Jurek and Steve Friedman)
The book presents a mental picture of the world of an ultra marathoner, for whom running is a way of life. It is impossible to spend so much time in motion without any internal core — to live that way.
Wheelmen: Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and the Greatest Sports Conspiracy Ever (Reed Albergotti and Vanessa O’Connell)
Lance Armstrong won seven Tours de France after staring down cancer, and became an international symbol of resilience and courage. Perhaps his personality prmoted this sport more than anything else. Then, in January 2013, the legend imploded. Lance admitted doping during the Tour de France. This is a journalistic investigation, an in-depth look at the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud, and the greatest conspiracy in the history of sports.

Swimming school visit certificate
This gift is for someone who has long been planning to learn how to swim. Choose a swimming schools to fit your taste. The most common in Russian cities is the I Love Supersport Swimming school. They offer a variety of programs for any level. And most importantly — after the pool you will certainly get into the open water!
Sports or swimming store certificate
Endless lists of top gifts for swimmers advice you to buy glasses, equipment, caps, nose clips, wetsuits, swimwear, etc. And if your loved one is an experienced swimmer (and if a beginner — it is even more true) do not buy that! Swimming outfit is a very personal choice. It’s hard to get the right size, color, or type (or maybe s/he doesn’t need it at all). For a good gift just get a certificate.
T-shirt or sweatshirt with a swimming print
Fortunately, every city has a printing studio to put an image on the clothes. Think about swimming and sports or come up with a motivating slogan. Imagination is not your strong side? Download one from a photo stock (they cost mere peanuts). We, swimming enthusiasts, really love bright clothes! And everyone is really happy to get our merchandise, it’s so true! Sweatshirts, t-shirts, swimwear, jammers, stickers… we’ve got a great choice of gifts. Be sure to check out @xwaters_shop
Efficient cosmetics for lovers of swimming in the pool
Water sports are a harsh lesson for skin, so it needs constant care. Morevna, a Russian brand of cosmetics, offers many after-pool care products. They are hypoallergenic and suitable for daily use: face cream and body balm actively moisturize and nourish the skin neutralizing the negative effect of chlorine, shower gel without SLS / SLES gently cleanses the skin without overdrying and neutralizes the smell of chlorine. And the most popular product — cream against rubbing — protects the skin from rubbing in wetsuit and sportswear.
And what are your new year gift ideas for swimming enthusiasts?
