Promising review: "The perfect way to keep kids busy. I pulled out a s'mores roaster after dinner and watched their smiles grow. Bought several for holiday gifts. Love it!" —niceman

Price: $49.99

Promising review: "I just put these up for spring and summer and needed two strings for a smaller deck area. I love that they are bright! The plastic bulbs look like glass but take away any broken glass worry. The strings are super strong but easy to hang, and I used cable ties through the hole at the top only every three or four to attach to the railing to keep it secure. I love these so far this season. Worth spending a little more for better quality." —Saltydogbarkley

Price: $40

Promising review: "The Opalhouse by Jungalow all-weather rattan pod will fit perfectly into any boho outdoor space. It is easy to assemble even though there are a lot of nuts and bolts, and everything you need is included in the humongous box. The seat cushion is firm but comfortable and large enough for two. This Opalhouse item looks and feels well-made. I think you could definitely keep this piece of outdoor furniture indoors, especially if you have a casual den/lounge area or if you are partial to boho decor. Just toss in a couple of pillows and a cozy Target throw, and you’ll be all ready to curl up with a good book." —Dusti

Promising review: "Beautiful bird feeder for the price. Holds a decent amount of seed. It was a little hard to open to fill at first. Unscrew the ring, and give the top a good pull-up. The seal seems really durable." —cto

This hammock comes with everything you need to set it up, plus a portable bag in case you want to take it on a camping trip!

Promising review: "Love this little guy! I wanted a hammock for a while but didn't want to invest too much before I knew how often I wanted to truly use it. This seemed the best starter hammock because of the price point and because it's so lightweight and versatile — I didn't need a frame, and it didn't risk damaging my trees either.

It's so silly easy to set up, and within five minutes of opening the box, I was lounging (and it only took that long because I was finding the sweet spot for adjusting, given the tree spacing in my yard). I think the only issue one might have is if your trees are too close together. Mine are about 15 feet apart, so I got the strap around the trunk, gave it a little slack, and then swung it sort of jump rope style to get it a little higher up the trunk without needing a step stool. Between this and using the tightest loop setting on the strap, I was able to get the hammock taut enough that I didn't touch the bottom when I got in.

I love the color, love the lightweight feel, and love that the bag it folds into becomes a little pocket on the side for small things. Overall, a really good buy!" —Landfall

Promising review: "Easiest assembly of all time. These chairs look amazing and are quick to assemble. Holes line up perfectly, so if something seems off, make sure you haven't mixed up which arm is right and left, or you have the bolts backward. We bought six for our fire pit and have had our eyes on Polywood for a long time. They did not disappoint." —Kipp

Price: $199 (available in seven colors)

Promising review: "This pool is amazing. It's super cute and functional. I've had this pool for two summers, and it's still going strong. I've set it up on my patio many times and taken it to friends' houses for mini-dip parties. It's very comfortable with two adults; we've had as many as five! Do yourself a favor, live your best life, and buy this pool. You will not be disappointed." —Target reviewer
