Posted on

2. A maniacal monster just in case you have to remind those gnomes who runs the backyard.

Promising Review: "My Gnomezilla scares critters of all size away from my yard. She is my first and last defense against unwanted vermin. Great purchase." —jaimed

Get it from Amazon $24.99.


4. A tough guy to let the squirrels know this ain't a garden to mess with.

Promising Review: "Really cute gnome. Looks just like my husband (smile). Perfect addition to my garden. We get a lot of rain and it seems to be holding up well. I thought it would fall over easier, but so far it stands the test of time and Pacific Northwest weather." —J Raschko

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

5. A family of sunbathing turtles who'll show you life is better in the slow lane.

Promising Review: "This is the second one we've had. The first lasted about two years before it was damaged. It's a nice addition to our Koi pond. The lights last longer if they have a full day of sun, but recently after a cloudy day, they still burned around six or seven hours." —tonymcc

Get it from Amazon for $11.70.

6. An intricate bird feeder for the ~chirpy~ morning person.

Promising Review: "I love to sit in the morning and drink my coffee while watching the birds. I've had several bird feeders over the years, but every time I get one, the squirrels get to it. This bird feeder is so pretty in person and is very nicely made! Not one squirrel has been able to get at the birdseed. It's wonderful to watch the little birds get in there and sit on the perches and enjoy." —Heather A. Stafford

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

7. A flock of dancing flamingos who'll put real meaning to party animals.

Promising Review: "The pink flamingo whirligig is really cute! It is bright and colorful, and seems to be well-made. I enjoy watching them dance outside my kitchen window." —JEH

Get it from Wind and Weather for $39.95.


8. A glowing string of lights to transform your backyard into a fairytale escape.

Promising Review: "I hung these in a tree in my backyard and love the way they light up in the darkness. It makes my yard seem so inviting. I liked them so much that I ordered two more, so now I have a total of five solar ornaments hanging from our maple tree." —Mary

Get it from Plow and Hearth for $29.97.

11. A very wise doggo who is his own master.

Promising Review: "Sister's surprise birthday gift — and was she surprised. 'Bubba' adds a peaceful, calm aura to her garden. Who knows, she may get Junior next year." —CountyGirl

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $33+.


12. A crafty kit that'll turn your next Sunday morning cleanup into an art project.

Promising Review: "These are really good. Don't need strong sun, and can be used indoors under room lighting to charge. Quite charming." —R

Get it from Wind and Weather for $9.95.

15. An ornamental owl who doesn't give a hoot about the nocturnal life.

Promising Review: "This little recycled beauty was quite a find. I was so amazed at how truly breathtaking it was. It was so ingenious how they made this from a mason jar. I would have never thought of that." —Toni

Get it from Wind and Weather for $24.95.


21. A cuddly duo who'll give all your friends a *fuzzy feeling*.

Promising Review: "The eyes are SO beautiful and real looking, you really have to look twice, as they appear to be very real. Size is perfect, exactly the same as the real baby bunnies that already live in my yard! Excellent purchase, highly recommend as a very special addition to your garden." —SpikeysMommy

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

22. A shameless squatter for cheekily greeting your guests.

Promising Review: "This is the neatest and cutest thing for any gnome garden. My neighbor, in his previous life long ago, went through a 'mooning' phase in his youth. Luckily for all of us in the neighborhood, he has outgrown that, but just to acknowledge that, I put Moonie in the flower bed between our two yards (you can guess which direction the buttocks are turned toward)." —A C Hill

Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

23. A curious cat who's definitely more of an indoor kitty.

Promising Review: "Hahaha! Great piece. Cute, well done. Can't wait to give it to my daughter. All her cats are that color and she spends a lot of time on the computer. I can actually see this happening." —Virginia Bres

Get it from Amazon for $18.90.


25. A radical wizard who's ready to rock but not roll (he's delicate, after all).

Promising Review: "This is perfect for the aging hippie in me. Great little gnome, and fits in perfectly in my garden. Better quality than pieces I've purchased at a higher price!!" —tcb

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

27. A tight-lipped toad who knows what happens in the garden, stays in the garden.

Promising Review: "Love this tree frog! I tried several trees in my yard to see which one would fit the groove of the frog. My hybrid Bradford pear was a perfect fit! The frog just fits and looks so natural looking! You will love him!" —Thrify Shopper

Get it from Amazon for $12.98.
