A beautiful coffee table book, both inside and out. This time is all about setting a beautiful tablescape – whether you’re hosting a group or dining alone.
Gingham has gone chic, and this tablecloth from Heather Taylor Home is a favorite amongst Yardzen staffers. The classic print is perfect for any occasion. Underfoot, consider this beautiful outdoor gingham rug from Serena & Lily.
Over The Table Rod
This over-the-table rod from Terrain elevates any outdoor dining table. Add string lights and foraged finds from the yard to create a warm and whimsical scene.
Tabletop Mesa Fire Pit
The Mesa is Solo Stove’s newest addition to their family of fire pits. Perfectly sized for adorning the tabletop, the Mesa sets the scene for after-dinner drinks and smores. Consider this Peppermint Smores Kit for a holiday flair.
Fresh Magnolia And Eucalyptus Wreath
A beautiful arrangement of fresh-cut magnolia branches and eucalyptus picked from the Northern California foothills. This wreath is handcrafted and made to order so you can enjoy the earthy, crisp textures of the outdoors in your decor this season.
Sunset Teak Outdoor Lounge Chair
The Sunset Outdoor Lounge Chair from Crate & Barrel is one of Yardzen’s most popular chairs, and for good reason. The neutral style and tones fit beautifully in any style yard, and the plush, low-slung frame makes this chair so comfortable that you won’t ever want to go inside.
Matte Black Lantern
Add instant ambience to any outdoor entertainment with these high-quality, low-price lanterns from Terrain.
Angled Obelisk Chiminea
This beautiful fireplace in raw, weathering corten steel has enough star power to serve as the centerpiece of any outdoor entertaining scene. Complete the gift with a canvas log carrier.
For the Backyard Chef
There’s nothing like cooking under the stars – especially when it’s in your own backyard! These gifts will encourage the chef in your life to hone their skills alfresco (lucky you!).
Spark Grill Essentials Pack
Spark Grills has grown a cult following thanks to their easy-to-use, all-in-one charcoal grill. Set the temperature from 250 all the way up to 900 to cook anything from slow-cooking meats to high-heat pizzas.
Pi Pizza Oven
We love Solo Stove’s Pi Pizza Oven so much that our co-founders did a photoshoot for the launch! Pictured here in Adam and Allison’s Mill Valley yard, this multi-fuel (wood and propane) oven makes a crispy, thin-crust pizza to die for! Plus, just like all things Solo Stove, it’s easy to move and store away. And, don’t forget the condiments! We love Brightland Olive Oil and this Spicy Honey.
Enamel Dinnerware & Serveware
Jenni Kayne and Lulu & Georgia both offer beautiful options for backyard-friendly serving and dining. Gone are the days of bright-colored campware (although, we love that too!); these pieces come in timeless neutrals that work beautifully inside and out.
Six Seasons – A New Way With Vegetables
This beautiful cookbook honors the bounty of the garden with simple recipes that celebrate terroir. Consider adding a shitake mushroom log to the gift for some homegrown umami.
Bistrot Flatware Set of 5
Classic, high-quality, long-lasting silverware that imparts the feeling of an elevated campout.
Barbecue Multi Tool
When it comes to grilling, the many pieces of cookware can quickly become overwhelming and hard-to-store. For that reason, we love this “King of the Grill” tool, which includes a spatula, fork, brush, corkscrew, and bottle opener. Plus, it comes in a beautiful gift box!
Trestle Teak Table
Don’t forget the outdoor dining table for all of those backyard meals! Explore more of our favorite outdoor dining tables in our shop.

Kid’s Gardening Gear
Dutch gardening company, Snoeber (since 1913!), makes heirloom-quality garden tools for kids and adults alike. We especially love their children’s line, like this trowel and this spade, which will not only last a lifetime (unlike most kids tools, which are plastic and break easily), they look beautiful even when strewn about the yard. Plus, get kids excited about gardening with this beautiful book, “In the Garden” Picture Book.
