    The Top 5 Swing Set Accessories and Outdoor Products for Every Holiday Gift List

    It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we have recommendations for the best swing set accessories and backyard products to give this holiday season. Whether you're shopping for your husband, wife, children, or extended family, this list has something for your loved one.

    Swing Set Accessories and Playset Ideas

    Our first recommendation is the Eastern Jungle Gym Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Bracket. We suggest giving the bracket to your favorite DIYer. The bracket makes building an A-frame structure easier than ever by creating a safe, secure angle for your lumber. This bracket may be used to build a number of outdoor structures. Made with top-quality steel, the bracket features a one-piece design with welded seems. It is extremely heavy-duty, weighing 10 pounds.

    Perhaps you have in mind a more complete hardware kit that includes the Easy 1-2-3 Bracket. Look no further than the Classic Cedar Swing Set Hardware Kit. This kit comes with all the hardware you need to build an A-frame swing set. Three swings are also included. Simply purchase your own lumber and this kit and set aside 1-2 hours for assembly. Then you will be ready to surprise your kids with a brand new swinging structure right in your backyard. All of the hardware provided in this kit is extremely heavy-duty. It is designed to support both children and adults so the whole family can play!

    Families that have an existing swing set may want to upgrade their current activities or add a new swing. The High Back Full Bucket Swing is the perfect accessory for the very little ones. This swing allows children of all ages to enjoy the swing set. Recommended for children six months and older, this swing seat is fully enclosed. It also features a high back for additional support. The bottom half of the swing chains are coated in soft plastic for a pinch-free grip. This means parents can rest assured, knowing the kids are swinging safely and comfortably while having a ton of fun.

    More Backyard Ideas: Sheds and Trampolines

    Shifting the focus to outdoor items that go beyond swing set accessories, our next suggestion is a storage shed. Maybe your kids are older, or perhaps you are shopping for your husband or extended family. If that's the case, consider a backyard A-frame storage shed. These multi-purpose storage structures are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Choose from wood or vinyl and customize your colors. Additional options include shutters, double doors, windows and more. The classic A-frame style compliments any backyard or outdoor area. Often offered pre-built or built-on-site, these sheds fit backyards of all sizes. You can even turn your gift into a family bonding activity! Clean out the garage with the family, or gather and store all of your swing set accessories indoors for the winter months. The kids will be happy to help set up Dad’s perfect Christmas gift.

    Last but certainly not least are Springfree trampolines. These products add a whole new level of fun to the backyard. Available in multiple sizes, Springfree trampoline are springless, which means there is a reduced chance of injury. With soft edges and a safety net enclosure, this is a great gift idea for mom, dad and the kids. Springfree Trampoline come standard with Tgoma – Take Gaming Outside and Make It Active. Tgoma is a gaming system that allows the children to connect their tablet to the trampoline, making the experience more interactive. The app features games that incorporate education, fitness. The kids will have so much fun they won't even realize they are exercising. When the children are at school, mom and dad can get outside and use the trampoline to get active, too. In our opinion, a Springfree trampoline is the perfect holiday gift for the entire family.

    Making the Most of the Holidays

    If you have an extra vacation day around the holidays, take a few hours to spend time as a family enjoying your new products and incorporating physical activity into your routine. We want to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season and a wonderful New Year!

  • Holiday Gift Idea for the DIYer: Swing Set Bracket

    Holiday Gift Idea for the DIYer in Your Life:

    Multi-Use Swing Set Bracket

    For many of us, holiday shopping gets a bit more difficult each year. First, there's the challenge of selecting an original gift that the person doesn't already have. You also need to find something that fits your budget. And of course, if you're like us, the element of surprise is a necessity, too.

    When it comes to the DIY-er in your family, we have a suggestion that meets all of the above criteria: a solid steel swing set bracket. Our Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Brackets are extremely versatile. They have a 45-degree angle between the legs, and 14 pre-drilled holes for easy assembly.

    While we use our swing set bracket exclusively for playset purposes, we've heard of customers using the product in a variety of ways.

    Swing Set Bracket Uses

    Here are some of the ways DIY folks around the country have used this piece of hardware: Hammock stands.

    - A homemade, A-frame hoist with a solid wood beam. One customer planned to use this for lifting tractor implements, cradling livestock/large game, and supporting motorcycles when performing maintenance.

    - An A-frame for a single swing or a bench swing (one of the many products for which we use the bracket).

    - Adding a swing to an existing structure, such as a deck or a playhouse.

    Planning and Presenting Your Gift

    There are a few different ways you can give your loved one a swing set bracket. The first option is to purchase one (or two, depending on the project you think he or she may have in mind), wrap it and present it. Be sure to account for the heavy weight of the item when you go about wrapping and transporting.

    Another option is a gift certificate to be used toward the purchase of the bracket. Depending on the amount, this could give the recipient some flexibility to add additional items (hardware, a swing, etc.).

    Our last suggestion applies if you are the DIY expert in the family. If this is the case, you could use these brackets to make one of the above-named items as a gift for a loved one.

    A Solid Option

    No matter which route you take, a quality, steel swing set bracket is a useful gift. It leaves no shortage of possibilities for DIYers! Whether used for a swing set or an unrelated project, a swing set bracket is sure to be a memorable holiday gift.
