The Outdoorsy Friend
You’re getting a gift for someone who loves spending their days absorbing nature. They love soaking up the sun all year long, and they’d rather be camping or spending their time with animals than being stuck inside all day.
The Parachute Expedition Hammock is the best choice for any outdoorsy type. It’s perfect for camping, cottage trips, and transforming your backyard into an adventurous vacation or getaway. We also recommend checking out our Mosquito Net Hammock for keeping all the summer fun without the bed bugs.
If you know someone whose face is always tucked away behind the spine of the book, there’s only one gift that surpasses books themselves: a great, new place to read. There’s nowhere more relaxing to read than on the comfy fabrics of a new hammock. The Deluxe Mayan Hammock Chair is perfect for avid readers. They’ll be able to comfortably curl up while getting lost in the world of their next favourite read.
The Stylish Friend
Getting a gift for someone who’s obsessed with stylish colours and patterns? Pick a hammock that matches their drive for all things beautiful. The Deluxe Quilted Hammock is cherished for its stunning patterns, and they’ll give your stylish friend the stunning backyard makeover they’ve always wanted.
Who says you can’t play video games on a hammock? A gamer deserves comfortable seating just like everyone else. The Colombian Hammock Hanging Chair is perfectly versatile and comfortable for hours gaming and streaming. Game on!
The Social Butterfly
It might be hard to find the perfect gift for the life of the party. Why not try a hammock? You’ll brighten up their next backyard party or gathering. We recommend the Mayan Hammock – it’s colours as are bubbly and bright as the hammock’s new owner. Plus, it's large enough for sharing!
Hammocks make a great gift for couples. They offer a sense of serenity and relaxation that any couple could benefit from. We recommend the Deluxe Brazilian Double Hammock. It’s perfect for pairs who want to share a relaxing moment together.
The Frequent Sleeper
Let’s face it: we all have one friend who dozes off frequently. For your sleeping beau or beauty, consider choosing the Deluxe Nicaraguan Hammock. Its materials bring out the best naps you can take.
The Whole Family
Picking out a gift for a family or large group? We’ve got hammocks for a crowd of any size. Our XL Family-Sized Mayan Hammock is perfect for fitting the whole squad. No need to take turns on the hammock!
The Early Bird
While you might enjoy sleeping in, some people get up early to take in every drop of sunlight they can get. A hammock makes the perfect gift for these folks – they’ll be able to sit outside, enjoy their cup of coffee, and watch the sun rise with a Cotton Rope Hammock.
Some people don’t like fancy things, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ‘wow’ them with a stunning gift. The Polyester Rope Hammock has a simple design, but it’s comfortable and slick without being jarring.
