father's day gift idea: relaxing furniture for his backyard
He was always there for you no matter what crazy hijinks you performed as a kid. He coached you through sports, helped you with your homework and was your partner in crime when Mom wasn’t around. This Father’s Day, give Dad the gift of relaxation and years of comfort in his own backyard sanctuary with a cool and unique piece of long-lasting, beautiful teak furniture.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of relaxing outdoor furniture is the classic hammock. But hammocks don't have to be boring or an eyesore. The Biltmore Hammock ($2,550) made of soaring tusk-like posts made of solid hardwood is as manly as it is elegant and would look great poolside or in the middle of the yard. And mom will love it's chic silhouette with crisp white fabric that she can decorate with an array of pillows in her favorite colors and prints.
More often than not, Dad just loves to relax with Mom or his favorite kid (that's you!). He can enjoy one-on-one time with a series of fun but practical teak furniture pieces that suit his style. The Bel-Air Double Teak Sun Lounger ($3,060) is a cool option that helps him take a break while being able to easily chat it up. Comfortable yet modern and sleek, the lounger also comes with a convenient sliding tray for drinks or books. Cushions, which can be ordered separately, come in a variety of colors and patterns to match the decor or his favorite hue.
He can also spend some quality time with those he loves on a classic Teak Garden Swing Bench by Anderson ($670). Imagine his delight when he can swing on the porch or patio to enjoy the sunset after dinner or watch the grandkids play. If he doesn' have a roof or porch, Anderson also has a handsome Teak Glider ($1,325) option that can easily rest on the patio and give him the same relaxing swinging motion.
And if Dad just wants to kick back on his own, give him a Father's Day gift that gives him some respite from the day, like this Teak Reclining Chair with Footrest ($490) or a Teak Rocking Chair ($625). Both have a simple but sturdy and elegant design that Dad will appreciate and will be able to use for years and years to come.
