It’s no secret that over-the-top pool floats have been a trend this year – we’ve been seeing them all over Instagram, from Coachella pool parties to celebrities’ own backyards. These giant colorful floaties come in all different shapes, from your favorite animal to your favorite snack, and they aren’t just for relaxing anymore! Check out our list of this summer’s coolest pool floats to help you host, party, joust (yes, joust!), and just chill, all from the comfort of your own pool.
This gigantic rainbow unicorn pool float is literally the stuff of fairytales! If you have a friend who’s a dreamer, a floater, and a unicorn lover, then you’ve found the perfect gift for them: a unicorn who doesn’t need to be trained or cleaned up after.
Inflatable Luau Cooler Bar
A pool float that’s fun AND functional! The perfect gift for someone who’s always too busy hosting to enjoy their own pool party, this float will keep the drinks and snacks close and cool. They won’t have to worry about running back and forth for food, which also means no wet feet in the house! Plus, the cartoony palm trees and colorful fish are adorably tropical and a perfect decoration for any pool party.
Styled after the calling card of any great party, this interactive Red Cup Party Pong Pool Float will have guests playing and drinking together all day and night. And when party time is over, you can stretch out and catch a tan on it just like you would a normal pool float!
Giant Pink Flamingo Pool Float
Move over, giant swan float – summer calls for beautiful, tropical flamingos! This 4-foot tall bird will add a gorgeous pop of color to any backyard (I love the way it looks against the bright blue pool water!), as well as a cute place to relax for hours on end. Plus, who could resist that cute face?
This summer, pool floats aren’t just for relaxing. Inspire a little friendly competition with this inflatable jousting set – whoever knocks their opponent off their log wins!

Giant Chocolate Frosted Donut Pool Float
This sweet spin on a boring old inner tube is too cute to pass up on this summer! There’s a giant food-themed pool float for anybody’s taste (ranging from creamsicles to soft pretzels, and everything in between) but this tasty looking sprinkle donut is by far my favorite. The bite taken out of it is not only quirky, but serves as a comfortable spot to rest your legs while you float in the pool all day long.
The perfect gift for a best friend or loved one with a summer birthday, this float is designed like the classic “best friend” necklaces we all had in middle school. This cute nostalgic design only gets better when you learn that the two pieces can be clipped together, so you can float with your best friend without drifting apart!
