Specialty retailers in the patio furniture, barbecue/grill, and fireplace industries should use this period to attract new and repeat customers. Offering accessories or smaller items can be a great way to lure customers into the store. Gift baskets filled with barbecue sauces and grilling tools make perfect gifts for outdoor chefs. Gift certificates for those dreaming of new outdoor grills or patio furniture are also great gift ideas. Below are a couple of outdoor items that are perfectly suited for gift giving.
