There's nothing better than enjoying time on the outdoor patio. Besides the weather (sun, cool breeze), there's also the outdoor grilling and even fun family games. The perfect patio gift is one that's useful but even fun. And of course you have to set the scene with the addition of a rug, lights, and more.
Here are the best patio gifts.
Keter Cool Bar Outdoor Patio Furniture and Hot Tub Side Table
This isn't just a table, but also doubles as a wine or beer cooler. When the table top is down, it's an elegant but unassuming side table. When it goes up, it reveals a 7.5-gallon ice bucket with double-wall insulation — perfect for filling with cans, bottles, and ice. A drainage plug in the bottom of the bucket makes clean up easy and a simple twist of the top returns it to its coffee table position.
Hampton Bay 24-Light Indoor/Outdoor 48 ft. String Light
String lights in a bedroom continue to be fairly trendy and outdoor lights are functional and stylish as well. Hampton Bay's lights measure 48 feet, with two feet between each bulb. The weather-resistant bulbs emit a soft, warm glow and they're also impact-resistant, so even if they drop, they shouldn't break or shatter. These would look great if you string them up on a wall or even wrapped around the legs of a table.
Fab Habitat Cancun Reversible Rug
An outdoor rug isn't a necessity for everyone, but it truly can make a patio look more stylish and pulled together. Fab Habitat's rug is easy to clean and it's resistant to sun damage and fading. Both sides of the rug feature the colorful print and the material is actually recycled plastic. If you ever want to roll the rug up and take it on a picnic or to the beach, it comes with a convenient carrier bag.
Phi Villa 13'x13' UV Block Sun Shade Gazebo Canopy with Hardware Kits
On a hot day, you probably know the importance and appreciation of having a covered patio. One way to provide coverage conveniently is with a portable gazebo canopy. Phi Villa's canopy is waterproof and has a UV protection layer. The 13 x 13 foot cover is easy to assemble and can comfortably fit 15 people under it.
Roccbox Portable Wood and Gas Pizza Oven
There's a likelihood you have a grill, but what about a pizza oven? You're sure to be the envy of your neighbors with the portable oven that cooks a pizza in as little as 60 seconds. The legs retract, which makes for easy storage, and part of the exterior is wrapped in silicone so you don't have to worry about burning yourself. Though it's a pizza oven, it also cooks steaks, veggies, and more.
MosquitoBOff Natural Mosquito Repellent Incense Sticks
Outdoor spaces usually come with pesky insects. To help control mosquitoes, an incense stick from MosquitoBOff should do the trick. A single pack comes with a dozen deet-free incense sticks that you burn and then plant in the ground or a flower pot. It's safe around children or pets.
Vivere Double Cotton Hammock Vivere Double Cotton Hammock
Don't be surprised when everyone in the family fights for time in this comfy hammock. But they can take turns or even share, as it holds up to 450 pounds. The heavy polyester material is quite durable and it attaches to the metal stand with heavy duty polyester ropes. It's also easy to adjust the hammock so it's as low and relaxed or a bit higher and tighter to fit your preference.
Blufree Bluetooth Speakers with Colorful Lights
There’s only one thing better than laid-back beats playing by the pool, and that’s bringing the beats in with you. This clear globe-shaped Bluetooth speaker will get any party started with some surprisingly rich sound quality, then keep the party going with up to eight hours of battery life. It has built-in buttons that make quick volume switches a breeze, and it has seven different light modes that follow the beat of the music, and light up the pool while it floats.
Freeport Park Bui Painted Solar Mobile Wind Chime
For a wind chime that truly stands out, here's a major contender. It features solar powered hummingbirds that change color. Not only is the sound soothing, but watching the changing colors is sure to mesmerize both children and adults. The mobile measures just under 27 inches and comes fully assembled. It's such a fun addition to an outdoor space.
GoSports LED Light Up Cornhole Set
Don't forget to add some fun to your patio space and that's easy to do with GoSports' cornhole set. The set comes in a few colors and can be played day or night, but you really might want to reserve it for nightfall, as the rings have built-in LED lights. This doesn't just make the hole easier to spot, but it's also pretty festive. The foldable frame is made of durable aluminum, but it's still lightweight enough for one person to carry.
