Mayan hammock double


If you're searching out Christmas gift ideas for friends and family, Mayan hammocks are a worthy consideration.

Everyone loves an opportunity to relax and take a break in their spare time. You probably even know a few people who live life at a breakneck speed and need to slow down! Either way, this hammock will is a true winner, indoors and out. 

Obviously we’re a bit biased, but our Mayan hammocks are some of the comfiest we’ve had the pleasure to experience. A nap in a Mayan hammock is a bit like sleeping on a cloud or floating in zero gravity. Regardless of what you call it, whoever receives your gift is sure to thank you after their first use.

Traditionally, Mayans from the Yucatán Peninsula hand-wove these ornate hammocks. No one knows exactly how old this highly skilled tradition is, and it’s been passed down from generation to generation for many years.

The fabric of this hammock looks as beautiful as it feels. Plus, you’ve got the choice of a full spectrum of colour options when you order one. Careful, though: the Mayan hammock’s knack for becoming a relaxing cocoon might cause feelings of jealousy! Your friends and family will be so relaxed and content, you’ll probably want to buy one for yourself.
