It’s been just over two years since I became a homeowner. Within that time I have made many other purchases. Some good, some bad and others destroyed by my high energy children. If they were good enough the first time around I would be willing to buy them again. Here are some of my favorite outdoor buys purchased on Amazon that I recommend and would buy a second time, starting with my beautiful patio set.
Candle Holders: https://amzn.to/3fuWkDz
Poker Table Topper: https://amzn.to/3rpYb1X
Poker Chip Set: https://amzn.to/3GCHNBK
Be careful with this purchase! Make sure to take care of it by winding it down when not in use. I did not buy the base and it got away from us several times in the wind and needed to be rescued. I would say buy the base too if you can.

Patio Heater: https://amzn.to/3GsT5IJ
The patio heater has also lasted us through the seasons. That is until it flew out the back of our truck trying to take it to my brother’s house to celebrate NYE. I haven’t bought the replacement yet, but this is an absolute must buy again for me. It made the holidays so much more enjoyable.
Fire Pit: https://amzn.to/3FyVaSf
The fire pit is just now starting to give out on us, but it was very good to us. We used it almost every night in fall and early winter. I will be purchasing a new one as soon as possible because we love to build fires in this family.
Sometimes when it’s absolutely unbearable outdoors, I like to move the party to the garage. That’s where my lovely space heater comes in. This one is a rather new buy, and is good for a party of 4 to 6 people.
I would eventually love to have a rug to match the umbrella. The stripes are beautiful and so aesthetically pleasing. This one is good for the price and size. I will be getting this one asap as well.
As you can see in the Amazon photo above, this is what the patio set used to look like. I no longer have all eight pieces due to a tiny Fourth of July accident that blew one of the table’s to smitherines. But I would buy the missing pieces again. My children also broke the Lounge Chaise but I will be getting that again for sure! I hope the pictures give you an idea of how well the furniture has lasted throughout the seasons. I have not used any lacquer or paint, as I only remove the cusions for certain times due to weather. The cushions have held up very nicely and are easy to remove and wash since they have zippers. I have also used a power washer on the cushions which was very helpful and it worked nicely.
As for the other items, we have lost several poker chips, but because there are so many included in the set, we are able to play without worry. The topper itself has lasted through several family parties and spills but suffered mildy. You can’t tell and it still looks almost brand new.
How do you entertain outdoors year round? What are some items you would add? Don’t forget these seasonal items go quickly! Don’t get caught unprepared, spring is right around the corner. Get your backyard ready for your next backyard event!
