    Due to COVID-19, we've been coveting our outdoor space more than ever. Whether you have a garden, a backyard, a rooftop deck, or even just a tiny balcony, here are some products to help keep your outdoor area warm and cozy throughout the fall.

    1. A space-saving infrared space heater that mounts to a wall or pergola so it doesn't take up precious floor space, and heats up in just seconds to keep you warm and comfortable in cooler weather.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my roof deck and it works as advertised. It gives off impressive heat output, and it's made of good material and seems very durable. I love the fact that it comes with a remote and I can adjust the heater without having to get up. And it can even be used indoors if needed. It's exactly what I was looking for." β€”Lina

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    2. A fashionable indoor/outdoor area rug to keep your feet warm and cozy when you relax on your patio or porch.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this outdoor rug! I’ve never owned one before and I was a little nervous about how it would fare after a rain storm. I wondered how long would it take to dry and if it would start to smell. After a long summer of mixed weather, I can say that this is an extremely well made product. It dries very quickly and always feels soft and clean. It adds the perfect amount of color and comfort to our outdoor space. I highly recommend it." β€”Lauren

    Get it from Wayfair for $89.99+ (available in eight sizes).

    3. A seriously soft and cozy fleece throw blanket you can use from summer through fall and clean right in your washing machine, so you don't have to worry about it getting dirty outdoors.

    Promising review: "This is a lightweight blanket that's still very fluffy, soft, and super cozy. It's light enough to be a summer blanket but it also keeps you warm enough during the chilly fall nights. It also has two different sides: one side is more sleek and the other side is fluffy. It has become one of my favorite blankets and I would definitely order again." β€”E. L

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 27 colors and in four sizes).

    4. A tabletop propane fireplace that is as chic as it is practical and can be used to both provide warmth and light up an otherwise dimly lit space.

    Promising review: "I have been using these string lights for two weeks now on my outdoor porch and I am very satisfied. It rained the other day and I completely forgot about the lights.

    Promising review: "I was not expecting much for a $15 light, but I was amazed at how well this worked. I clasped it onto my umbrella pole in seconds and it was ready to roll. There is a dim, medium and high setting, which you can change with the click of a button. This light is bright enough to enjoy dinner outside around a large patio table. I used it during the summer and fall and it worked perfectly." β€”louconn
