1. Double Hammock:

It is a great present for a couple. What can be better than to snuggle in a hammock in a cold winter day?  It comes with its own stand so it can be installed anywhere. Indoors in winter and outdoors in warmer days so it will be useful all year round.

It also comes in a variety of colors, so it's easy to find one you like. A great patio gift that's sure to please everyone. What's more? It was hugely discounted at the time of writing and cost less than $20. 

2. Sitting girl statue:

What better way to ornate your backyard than adding a statue? There are several themes on offer, like animals, angels and gnomes. A popular theme nowadays is people statues as they seem to add life and joy in your garden. 

A good place to find garden statues online is Wayfair as they have a broad choice and offer good prices. We like the sitting girl with the fairy in her hands but don't hesitate to browse for more choices.

3. Gate Arbor:

This intricate scrollwork will add style to your garden even in the middle of winter. The ornate wrought-iron designs bring to mind Turkish homes and speak of faraway land. 

It's a nice decorative touch for someone with a big open garden but will not work in small and confined spaces.

    I love these ideas! My aunt and uncle just downsized to a luxury trailer, but they have some outdoor space on a lake. I did not save to get them a gift for indoors because they just got rid of so much? The double hammock or the statue would be so perfect for their space!
