With the promise of a long, sweltering summer (not arrived yet) and my other half's birthday looming and, yet again, a lack of inspiration on what to buy, I stumbled across this hammock on Amazon. A few clicks later and it was winging its way to us.
On arrival, I was not disappointed. It is made of a very durable, hard wearing fabric which is designed to be weather resistant (ideal for Scotland's four seasons in one hour) and comfortable. We are fortunate enough to have two trees close enough to secure the hammock to. All that is needed is two special ropes which are secured around the trees and two D-clips to attach the hammock too. These were all ordered at the same time. All in all, the purchase came to just under £50.
When my man opened the gift, he was absolutely over the moon envisaging hours of lying in the sunshine, beer in one hand, good book in the other and he fixed it up immediately. Now, the sun hasn't shone that much but he (and me too) have spent quite a bit of time, lying back gazing up at the sky and rocking restfully to and fro.
The hammock is easy to get on and off, you feel secure in it and it is very comfortable. We live in a quiet-ish street so once you're ensconced in the hammock you can drift away.
I would highly recommend this as an unusual quirky gift that will be used well by the recipient and everyone who visits will want to have a shot too. If you don't have two trees in the right position, there are other options such as a cradle type set up but I can't comment on what these are like.
