Backyard Firepit

Backyard Firepit

Share some beers and some stories this summer around Smith & Hawken's original Backyard Firepit ($129). It's got an extra-thick copper basin and a hefty one-piece wrought-iron stand. To go double-duty, ditch the spark screen for a chrome-plated grill ($29) that converts the Firepit into a barbecue to feed the unruly guests. [Thanks, Lawrence!]

  • Semi-Pro Croquet Game

    Although in many places the game of croquet has been overtaken by drunken battles of cornhole or horseshoes, croquet is still an enjoyable time, and can be made even more enjoyable by the quality and convenience of this Semi-Pro Croquet Game ($170). This Italian-made set includes four hand-carved beech mallets, regulation-size balls, metal wickets, and striped stakes, all of which go on the included trolley when not in use. So go ahead, make a lazy afternoon of it with some croquet and afternoon tea — your family (and your liver) will thank you.

  • Transparent Canoe-Kayak

    You can check out all of the aquatic action going on beneath you with this unique hybrid canoe-kayak ($1,600). Its transparent hull — which is made of the same material as the cockpit canopies of fighter jets — lets you and a mate enjoy the underwater sights. The canoe has a lightweight anodized aluminum frame for easy transportation, and comes with two double-headed paddles, a water bailer and two flotation devices.
