Must-Have Outdoor Gifts

Turn your back garden into THE place to be when friends and family come round.

We're not often blessed with the best weather in the UK, but when we are it's pure bliss. Outdoor furniture is a must for enjoying the sun and we have plenty of options for you depending on your #gardengoals.

Garden Trading have a great range of tables and chairs including small bistro sets for 2-4 people, large tables with benches for parties of 10-12 plus high tables and stools to make your own bar!

We're in love with the OKA sunbed for cat naps and lazy days in the sun, while Cult Furniture has plenty of options for long-lasting rattan furniture. Want even more relaxation? LemonMade have a great selection of deckchairs with fun and quirky prints or go further with Hamaca hammocks in your back garden!

If you want to heat things up, a fire pit or chiminea is an absolute must-have for keeping warm when nights get cooler and creating a great atmosphere outside - did we mention you can also roast marshmallows? La Hacienda has plenty of options where a fire pit can turn into a table, a chiminea can turn into a grill and you can even add a pizza stone too. Many also have wood storage designed underneath the flame to keep warm, dry and ready for topping up long into the evening.

Speaking of things hotting up, we have plenty of barbecues to feed all the family, and friends too. From small, camping accessories that are great for travel, to the king of the grills - there's something for everyone.

What's a party without some mood lighting? Add festoon lights, oil lamps and garden torches to create a warm atmosphere and keep the fun going until late into the night. We love these torches from ZaZa Homes to dot around the garden, the fibreglass wick should provide you with years of use.

For a more relaxed atmosphere, opt for outdoor lighting from Garden Trading such as festoon hung in the trees, along the fence or the inside of a parasol. We love the rechargeable lanterns that can be placed on tables, around the patio and within the garden - plus it's environmentally friendly too!
