    1. A bronze fire pit to keep you warm as you make s'mores and share ghost stories. It even comes with a grill grate and cover, so you can cook a few burgers outside this summer.

    The Coral Coast Rubbed Bronze Crossweave 36 in. Wood Burning Fire Pit burning near a lake

    Promising review: "The first time I used my fire pit, I had a backyard cigar party for my birthday. My friends loved it. They were shocked when I told them I am also able to barbecue on it using the extra rack it came with. They looked at the pit again with their mouths dropped. LOL! The second time I used it was during the boxing fight and that was the first time I barbecued on it. I loved it! If you love a deep and wide bowl for your fire pit, then get this one. Instructions were simple to follow. I used a power drill to put it together. It was not required but trust me when I say it got the job done much faster and made pieces more secured onto the fire pit. I love the fact that it came with a manual that explained in details how to use and take care of the fire pit after each use." β€”Shinell

    Promising review: "These planters are built to last; rain, sleet, hail and snow are no match for them. There is a drainage hole with a plastic plug insert, and small water reserves in the base to keep plants hydrated in between watering. I cannot say enough great things about these planters. Light enough to move around when full of soil, but still sturdy enough to stay put in high winds. A great buy!" β€”Lisa472

A little confusing to put together, but after a couple tries I got it right. You do need a drill or screwdriver to assemble it. If using outdoors, perhaps you should seal it with a super good quality resin." β€”Tori Detroit

    The Perky-Pet Sun and Star Lantern Wild Bird Feeder hangs from a post. A rainbow bird sits on its ledge, eating seed.

    Promising review: "This bird feeder has become a popular feeding area for the entire bird gang. It also has enough room for the doves to feed. We closed up two of the openings because we felt it was dispensing too much seed, and it has worked out really well! We like that we can hang it or maybe place it on a post if we decide to move it. Very pleased with it." β€”Nancy81

    The stainless steel NewAir 15” Built-in 90 Can Outdoor Rated Beverage Fridge with Auto-Closing Door and Easy Glide Casters on a back patio

    Promising review: "We've been keeping our fridge out in the hot SoCal sun for over a month now, and it's been great at keeping everything cool. Pros are that it is QUIET and that with the adjustable shelves, I can keep a variety of can and bottles in here so I have something on hand for everyone who stops by. This was a quick set up from unboxing to install, and it comes with optional casters in case you want it available to move around. It also shipped super fast to us once ordered. My cons are that with the stainless steel front, it tends to smudge easily, and if you have sprinklers near it, you'll get water spots outside. With seeming endless space for cans, but a small footprint, this is a great edition to our outdoor entertaining area." β€”stirandstrain

    Price: $839.99

    Greenworks corded lawn mower

    Promising review: "I purchased this mower as my lawn guys retired and new services were beyond my budget. I am older with back problems, so I needed a lightweight machine. Assembling it was simple, as was adjusting the cut height. Great cut, easy maneuvering, and I was able to tuck it easily in my crowded garden shed. Can't do that with a gas mower. I'm totally pleased with this versatile mower. Yes, I would buy again." β€”Jo

    Price: $180.56

    32. A mosquito repellent lantern because the sunset is easier to enjoy when you're not swatting bugs away from your eyes.

    The Thermacell Bristol Mosquito Repellent Patio Shield Lantern

    Promising review: "Mosquitoes LOVE me! I've tried everything, and they still attack me, so I thought I'd give this a try. Each morning I love to sit with my coffee on the front porch. I come out, turn on the lantern and while it starts clearing the area I make my coffee and feed the birds. Then about 5-10 minutes later, I sit and there are NO Mosquitoes! It's amazing. Get one!" β€”Happy Girl

    Price: $32.99

    33. An outdoor shed to store your gizmos, gadgets, and more. This shed even has functioning vents, skylights, and windows!

    Promising review: "A quality product for the price. No leaks. It was fairly easy to assemble as it came with good instructions. We easily got it put up in two to three hours (husband and wife). The foundation is, indeed, critical. Get it level. Make sure it has a good solid base. No need for costly concrete; you could use treated boards, pavers, etc. Just get it level." β€”Tex98

    Price: $799
