My DDs are both learning to swim this year in class. They have costumes, goggles and towels (those micro fibre ones from Decathlon).

Any ideas where I could get some nice dive sticks? Other swimming related gifts - had thought of a nice swim bag. I think I saw someone recommend a good online swimming website recently which I have now forgotten! TIA

Amazon has loads, there's a whole range of finding Dory stuff that is mostly reduced now too.

My two had these little sharks which rotate as they do down; they still use them in fact:

Oh bollocks and I've posted that twice - sorry! Thought the link had blocked

Amazon has swim toys, things like sinking sticks, flip toys you have to blow underwater to flip over and so on.

I got some nice swim bays on eBay with their names on, we got mermaid ones but there's a big range.

I found a lovely swim bag on Not On the Highstreet which I had personalised.

I bought zoggs dive sticks that DD loves.

A noodle.

Those towels that they wear like a cape, and have a hood. Usually decorated like a character.

A beach ball to play with in the water.

Zoggs dive sticks are very well liked by the kids at our pool

I'm guessing you might not have space at a public pool, but this style cric us popular - very flat, and 4 handles.

Oh, and a set of flippers /snorkle set if your pool will allow.

A friend does printed clothing and has lovely kitbags for £12 printed - you send her a pdf of what you want, and she prints it on the bag

Trunki paddlepak swimming bags are really good, and in fun designs
