Aldi is selling this huge swimming pool for under £90 – er, and an inflatable kayak

In Aldi stores from tomorrow, but check online too for these garden buys. Not fast enough? We've found alternatives too

Looking for fabulous garden ideas to keep the kids happy over the holidays – or to take away with your on your staycation? These aren't quite the waterparks in Spain you'd had in mind back in chilly January, but they are fabulous, generous sized pools, including the new one from Aldi, back in stock in stores tomorrow (or so we're told; fingers crossed!). If you can't get the Aldi pool in time before it – inevitably – sells out, we've come up with a ton of mail order alternatives, listed below in price order.

And, just because we can, we've thrown in the Aldi kayak – and, obviously, a few alternatives that shouldn't go out of stock faster than you can say, 'Er, I can't fit this kayak in my basket'.

The best pools from Aldi and beyond

And now for kayaks...
