Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A wicker swing you'll want to use basically every day in the summer to enjoy the beautiful weather while reading a book. I can already feel you starting to relax.


    Price: $202.77

    2. A retro three-piece rocker set I'm pretty sure I saw in an episode of Veronica Mars the other day – if that show's coming back. it def means these are still in style.


    Promising review: "These chairs remind me of the ones my parents had when I was growing up. They are solid and good quality for the price. They are not the heavyweight chairs from the 1960's, which makes them easier to move. I put them together in about one hour. Pleased with them and will likely purchase additional from this line as I continue to decorate my outdoor living space." —Linda

    Price: $202.04

    3. A wicker table with a removable lid so you can store all the random things you don't want sitting out when you're not outside using them.


    Promising review: "This table is super cute and high quality. I like that you can store things inside as well. Plus, the lid is removable." —Lisa

    Price: $85.08

    4. A three-piece chair and table set you can soak up the sun in. Just don't forget to wear sunscreen!


    Price: $249

    6. A chiminea to keep you warm when the temp cools down but you're not ready to go inside just yet.


    Promising review: "I'm really enjoying my chiminea! It actually came a day early, was easy to put together, and I have used it every day since. It is not EXTREMELY heavy duty, but a small fire is plenty to warm it and you too. I love sitting in front of a fire, and this chiminea is just the right size for my wife and me." —Jarrett

    Price: $91.52

    7. A set of two all-weather wicker chairs so you don't have to worry about them when it suddenly starts to downpour at 3 p.m. (because that's what it does in the summer for some reason).

    22. A griddle cooking center – once you start using it, you may end up cooking every meal on it. Yeah, it's that good.


    The griddle has two heat zones, a fold-away prep table, and a 360° grease pan and rear grease cup, so you can clean it easily. Plus, it has a paper towel holder and a stainless steel lid so you can steam, roast, smoke, or warm and make whatever kind of food you want to on it.

    The set comes with four chairs and a fire pit table.

    Promising review: "We set the chairs and fire pit up on our patio. They were easy to put together. The chairs were uncomfortable at first, but once we broke them in, they were comfortable. For the price, it is exactly what we wanted." —Jackie
