Certain people are very difficult to shop for. There are young girls with very specific tastes in clothing, young men who only appreciate high-end merchandise and adults who already have everything. Christmas ideas – As we get older and start to establish our values, the spirt of giving is something that makes us feel fulfilled. We all want to put smiles on the faces of our loved ones, so we put effort and care into gift selection. Shopping for others is usually a pleasant experience, except for those difficult to shop for.

A few years ago, I purchased a portable hot tub for my dad as a Christmas present. It was expensive so the siblings all chipped in and we presented the spa to him as a gift from all of us. I was nervous because it was my idea. If he wound up never using the gift, I would have felt responsible. But this was not the case. He inflated it a few weeks later, and has been using it almost every night since. The gift was a huge success, but the truth is, I got lucky. Now that he has been using it for a year, I can see all of the qualities that made it such a wonderful gift. I want to share them with you.

Quality Over Quantity, Christmas ideas

Some people value quality higher than quantity. People like this will appreciate a gift that they are able to actually use.

A blow up hot tub is more expensive than most people would like to spend on a gift for a person. But if you are able to get a few people together, it is manageable. The reason that an inflatable spa is a quality gift isn’t because of its price. It is because the recipient will be able to use it and enjoy for years to come. The person who receives the inflatable jacuzzi as a gift will quickly realize that inflatable hot tubs are worth it.

Soaking in a hot tub is a wonderful experience. It is relaxing, soothing, and helps you forget about the stress of everyday life. The person that you purchase a portable spa for will love the gift. The reason is because it is a quality gift that they may not have ever purchased for themselves.

Big Gift Under the Tree

When you go downstairs on Christmas morning and see the presents under the tree, you can’t help but feel excited, no matter how old you are. You inevitably start looking around trying to figure out who each present belongs to. The bigger the gift, the more exciting the surprise. Imagine how excited the person that you are shopping for will be when they see a huge wrapped portable jacuzzi with their name on it.

Blow up spas weigh around 85 pounds when they are packed in a box. Manufacturers ship in nearly a 4-foot by 4-foot box, which is large and impressive. I promise you that if you wrap a portable hot tub and put it under a Christmas tree, it will stir the most excitement out of all of the presents.

Use It the Next Day

One of the biggest selling points of inflatable spas is how convenient they are. It is easy to set them up and they come with all the accessories necessary to use the tub. This is great because whoever you give the tub to can set it up and start using it the following day.

It takes about 30 minutes to hook up all the parts and begin inflating the tub. Then it takes about 10 minutes to inflate the cistern, and 30 minutes to fill it with water. Once it is filled with water, you turn the heat pump on and let it do its work. The best inflatable hot tubs have heat pumps that can increase the temperature of the water at a rate of 4 degrees/hr. The rating applies to cold ambient air temperatures.

Health Benefits

Another great thing about hot tubs is that they have more to offer than just being a luxury item. Hot tubs have health benefits as well. Hydrotherapy helps reduce stress, reduce pain from arthritis and increase circulation. A hot tub may be an appropriate gift for an elderly person struggling with arthritis or an athlete recovering from an injury.

Not Obtrusive

One of the characteristics that make blow up jacuzzi desirable is the fact that they can be stored when not being used. For people that have small backyards or decks, or those with no permanent allocation, this is a valuable feature. The best portable hot tubs aren’t obtrusive because they can easily be packed and stored away. This adds to their value as a gift. There are ways to minimize inflatable hot tub electricity usage. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about your gift becoming a financial burden.


It’s very possible that an inflatable tub is outside of your budget for a gift. Also possible that you don’t think it can make a good gift for anybody in your family. The intent of this article was to get you thinking outside of the box. Hopefully I brought up some good characteristics of a present that will help you find that perfect item for that hard-to-shop-for person.
