Gifts for the Deck or Patio
Gifts for the Deck or Patio
Homemade gifts for the deck or patio are great for the Holiday! Especially when they really mean something, which is why our Tufdek team has pulled together our top 10 gifts that go great on a vinyl deck. So, get your hammer ready as there are some great ideas below to get you started on your search for that perfect handmade present.
Gift Idea #1: Day Bed
Picture a couch with no back – that’s a day bed! It can be square, rectangular, or even in a sectional shape to suit a larger vinyl deck or patio. All you need is a good base of 2x4s, a platform, and a big cushion.
Gift Idea #2: Sofa for Vinyl Deck
Another great gift for the deck or patio is a sofa. It is really just a day bed with a back to lean on, great for corners and against the edges on a Tufdek vinyl patio. You’ve got the basics above, just add another piece!
Gift Idea #3: Pallet Bar
Upcycle some free or cheap old pallets into a cool, rustic bar! Add some lights for ambiance and you have a great gift for mix-master in your life.
Gift Idea #4: Storage and Side Tables
In the same vein as the above ideas, you can easily build storage benches/ottomans, side tables, coffee tables, etc. See what the vinyl deck needs, figure out what your loved one wants, and go from there!
Gift Idea #5: Cool Drinks on Hot Days
Here’s an easy gift for the deck or patio. Take a regular cooler, create a cedar box with a hinged lid, and pop it inside! Now cool drinks are easily accessible and you have a great-looking box that can double as a coffee table or bench.
Gift Idea #6: Fire Bowl
This one is so easy, yet a great gift. A fireproof bowl, special glass, and fuel are all you need. All these are available at home building and outdoor stores. A five-minute gift that means something!
Gift Idea #7: Converted Chandelier
Upcycle an old chandelier to hang over a vinyl deck. Simply replace any lighting with solar lights, or even wrap with tiny white holiday lights to be used all year round.
Gift Idea #8: Wall Planters
Help a small vinyl deck become a green oasis with a wall planter (or more than one). You can have a group of smaller boxes, or try a pallet – they work well and leave lots of room for plants.
Gift Idea #9: Hanging Planter
If there’s room to hang plants, help by building a few hangers. All you need is some rope and platforms. Include a gift certificate to a local nursery so your loved one can get plants in the spring.
Gift Idea #10: I don’t DIY!
