Promising Review: “I looked high and low for an outdoor sectional at an affordable price, and this set fits the bill PERFECTLY! It was super easy to put together and has so far held up beautifully. I agree with other reviewers that the cushions are as white as can be, but that’s what I bought, so that’s fine with me. I bought a few colorful pillows to break up the blinding white, so it looks great.” —Alex Haack

Price: $972.79 (originally $1,215.99)


A pop-up wind-resistant gazebo if you like the idea of having a gazebo in your backyard but aren’t willing to shell out a few thousand dollars for a permanent one (why so expensive?). It can fit up to six people and only takes one minute to set up and break down. If this isn’t a win then I don’t know what is.

Promising Review: “This screened gazebo was so easy to pop up by myself. It provides some light shade and bug protection. It’s so nice for the kids to sit in while having a picnic lunch! It seems to be very sturdy. You will need to use the sandbags in a breeze, do get some sand prior to setting up the first time. I didn’t have sand yet so I used some other weighted bags for the first few times.” —HDUngar

A cult-favorite Weber charcoal grill that’s the perfect size for any outdoor space — be it patio, balcony, stoop, porch, or yard — and can barbecue grub for a decent amount of guests. At last, you can make those TikTok grill recipes that have been burning a hole in your saved folder.


Promising Review: “I bought this for its size. We like the Jumbo Joe size but not the fact that you have to place it on a table to use, so when I saw the Jumbo Joe with legs I knew we had to have it. This is perfect for taking to the beach for the day and easy to store because of its small size. And even though it’s on the small side, it certainly is large enough to grill our chicken, ribs, lamb chops, and veggies for 20+ people! It’s perfect.” —Tent Lady

Price: $119.99

Promising Review: “I bought these to decorate our labor space so as to make the cold hospital room feel more warm and comfortable. The L&D nurses loved them, and we got tons of compliments. They gave off enough light to avoid turning on the lights in the bathroom completely! When our baby was born, my husband wrapped them around the outside of the clear hospital bassinet so we could check on the baby through the night without turning on the overhead lights. The postpartum nurses also gushed about them and thought they were a neat idea. A total bonus was our baby loved the soft, colorful light, and they looked great in pictures. We’ve continued using them at home for two months, and the same batteries are still going strong. I love the timer option, so I don’t have to worry about them burning all night. The bulbs stay cool, and the wire is light enough to position almost anywhere. We love them!” —trenshin

Promising Review: “I LOVE this table. I was attracted to the cool boho side design and I liked the openness of it. What I didn’t expect was for it to look so elegant. It doesn’t really read overly boho or rustic…just unique. It looks much more expensive (and I looked at a lot of high-end ones) and the reflective glass top keeps birds from pooping on it, another hidden benefit. Very sturdy yet lightweight. Arrived quickly and well packaged. A winner!” —Val

There’s something about laying in a hammock that makes me feel like cloud-watching isn’t a waste of time. I’ve been spending more time reading since I purchased this, which was a personal goal of mine. It feels sturdy and functions the way I expected. All around, I’m happy with this purchase. Very reasonably priced compared to other hammocks I found online. You won’t regret buying it!Happy Customer

Promising Review: “These pots are pretty reliable, inexpensive, and nice to have around if I need to pot something. The built-in drainage is nice. The only thing to keep in mind is that it seems a little more shallow than it looks. I don’t usually plant very tall plants in it. All the colors keep me coming back for more.” —Justoneofamillion

A tabletop fireplace to heat things up in your backyard. Just imagine sitting next to the warm ambient fire sharing laughs or marshmallows. We see you and your family creating many memories with this!

Promising Review: “Easy to set up. Comes with a propane gas line and propane tank saucer. All you need to get is a 15 lb propane tank. The warmth from the flames is perfect for a rectangular outdoor umbrella table. The gas can be adjusted from low to high using a knob. One problem I encountered was that even after hooking up the gas line and turning on the gas, the burners would not ignite. It turns out that the lava rocks should not be packed too tightly over the small holes in the pit. After I loosened the rocks, the burner lit fine. I’m super happy with this stylish fire pit.” —elonmuskfan

Price: $170


A classic outdoor clock that also measures the ambient temperature. This stylish yet functional piece of decor is perfect for leaving your phone inside so you can truly enjoy time outdoors without reaching for your device every two seconds to “check the time” (only to end up mindlessly scrolling through your feeds).

Promising Review: “I’ve had two of these for a year now; one under a covered porch and one on the side of a shed exposed to the elements. Both have worked great in our rainy PNW weather and still look like new. I only use them to tell time from afar and never pay attention to the temperature gauge so I can’t speak to that feature. Would 100% purchase again.Michy

The birdbath was a birthday present.A Satisfied Customer
