Let's face it, it's holiday shopping season and we have to answer those same annual questions. Where are the best places to go shopping? Where are the best deals on the best gifts? What would be a good gift to buy for that quirky brother, that artistic cousin, or that friend with very distinguished tastes? That third question is always the most difficult one to answer but when you shop at Design Toscano, you will find quality gifts for the most challenging people that grace your list. Our site also happens to be a good fit for the first and second questions because we offer such a huge variety of objets d'art, high quality resin garden statues, and fine interior decorations for very good prices.
That said, even if you aren't sure if your brother would prefer a Bigfoot Statue over the unique Zombie Gnombie, you can always give him a Design Toscano gift certificate to let him decide. This is an easy way to let the special people in your life pick out the gifts that suit them best. Since our catalog comes with the gift certificate, you can bet that they will have lots of fun looking for the best Egyptian decorations, animal yard statue, or other beautiful items to decorate and add magic to their home.
This holiday season, instead of fretting about finding the right gift for everyone on your list, give Design Toscano gift certificates from $10 to $500.

Sometimes it's hard to find gifts for the holidays because we just end up thinking about the same types of presents we gave the year before. It might be clothing or some useful item but we don't often think of giving decor for the backyard. This is a perfect gift for anyone who has at least some green space behind the house. If the person in question likes to spend time in the garden, that's even better, but anyone with a backyard could use high quality decor for the garden. Even if he or she already has a fine display of Greek garden statues or a fun bunch of garden gnomes, you can bet that they will love to take the wrapping off another statue for the yard.
To find the best garden statue for that special person, think about how they have decorated their yard along with their hobbies, what they like to read, and so on. If they only have gnomes and other cute garden statuary, garden fairies like the Dreamland Fairy Statue is a good bet. They might also like high quality animal garden statues like adorable Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan. However, if that special person is a fan of science fiction or fantasy novels, buy gargoyles figurines like the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a realistic dragon skull statue.

Garden statuary encompasses a much wider range of subjects than most people realize. While gnomes and fun welcoming signs continue to be popular additions to the backyard (and there's nothing wrong with using them as decor), nowadays, you can also accent the garden with a highly realistic animal yard statue, decorate the yard with stone garden angels along with a wide variety of religious statues, or add a unique touch to the yard with a fantastic Bigfoot Statue.
To bring a bit of Africa into your yard, put statues like the fantastic Lioness with Cub and the Stalking the Savannah Cheetah Statue on display. Both of these fine animal sculptures capture the essence of wild Africa with beautiful details and characteristic behaviors shown by these felines in the wild. Compliment these striking sculptures with the impressive Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Sculpture.
Religious statues come in many forms and range from classic Christian statues like the breathtaking Ascension: Grand Scale Christ Sculpture, artistic angel-themed decor such as the Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze, and beautiful Asian religious statues such as the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture.
As far as unique statuary goes, you won't find a better selection of fantasy-themed and unique resin garden statues anywhere else. In addition to our signature Bigfoot Statue, we also make it possible to decorate your yard with friendly alien decor, a quality Humpty Dumpty Sculpture, and much more.

The garden is meant to be decorated. While you don't have to string lights from the trees (although that can also look nice at the right time of year), the backyard is always going to look better with a bit of decor. Resin garden statues add character and can let you decorate the yard with everything from Greek garden statues to highly detailed animal garden statues and stunning stone garden angels. However, if you would rather stick to a more contemporary touch when it comes to garden decor, you may want to consider using certain Asian garden statues.
While a large Buddha sculpture can add a majestic, timeless touch to the garden, Basho the Sumo Wrestler provides a more modern look. As he squats in classic Sumo fashion Basho gets ready to wrestle any of your garden gnomes and gives the garden a unique east Asian touch. To add depth to your contemporary garden sculptures, pair Basho with a Far East Garden Fighters Sumo Gnome Statue. The Sumo Gnome is also dressed for a wrestling match but looks far too happy and cute to actually do any wrestling. On the other hand, the Far East Garden Fighter Ninja looks more than ready to defend your backyard from squirrels, rabbits, and other intruders. To round out your display of contemporary Asian garden sculptures, you can't go wrong with the beautiful and musical Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain.

At Design Toscano, we hold a lot of sales. Sometimes, a sale is for garden statuary while other times, it might pertain to animal garden sculptures. However, keep in mind that even when we don't have an official sale going on, hundreds of our high quality decor items are still on sale. For example, if your garden could use a few extra religious-themed sculptures, just head to the main page for religious statues and check out the sale items. While the items that are on sale vary and change, you will always find several wonderful religious sculpture options for great low prices.
The beautiful Miraculous Medal Madonna Sacred Garden Statue is one of our best selling religious statues. Modeled after antique Madonna statues found in the yards of many Italian homes, this fine sculpture is carefully painted by hand and is an excellent addition to Roman Catholic residences and anyone who appreciates Madonna-themed art. For additional peace and serenity, pair it with the elegant Madonna of Notre Dame Garden Statue.
Stone garden angels are also religious statues and are meant to inspire. The Glory del Cielo promotes inspiration with detailed wings, carefully carved robes, arms folded across the chest, and an innocent peaceful face gazing up at the heavens.
If you would rather go with Asian-themed religious statues, the Monument-Sized Giant Buddha Statue is also on sale.

Some of us like cats, dogs, and 'traditional' pets, while others love animals of all sorts. If you or someone you know absolutely loves animals of all kinds, the following three animal garden statues make excellent backyard decor:
"The Expert Fisherman" Black Bear Statue": This sculpture of a bear is a true work of art that shows the behavior and beauty of a Black Bear with fine, accurate details. If you look close, you might even see the satisfied hungry look in the bear's eyes. Put this sculpture of a wild bear in the backyard to give your place a touch of the wild and pair this excellent sculpture with other statues of forest animals like the Mother's Love Doe and Fawn Sculpture for full effect.
Sandman and Porker, the Piggies Garden Statues: Pigs can be incredibly cute, especially when they are young. Sandman is fast asleep after eating a full, satisfying meal. However, his friend Porker is still hungry and shows it with alert, inquisitive eyes. These adorable animal garden sculptures make a wonderful compliment to a backyard with garden gnomes and other fun statues.
The Galapagos Tortoise Statue: This big spectacular sculpture of a giant land tortoise will be one of the most amazing statues in your collection. It looks so real that neighbors might wonder if you have a private zoo.

We are all familiar with domesticated common animals like dogs, cats, cows, and chickens. While those animals do make excellent subjects for an animal yard statue, sometimes, we want something a bit more on the wild side for the backyard. Keep the cute statues of laughing pigs and dancing geese near the back door but let the other parts of your garden go wild with sculptures of bears, moose, and other beautiful wildlife. The popular Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture is one such item. The very realistic nature of this sculpture shows that artist Samuel Lightfoot must be familiar with seeing bears that fish for salmon in wild Alaskan rivers.
This statue is a work of art that will be admired by every guest to the garden. Its details and natural beauty also make it an excellent item to display in outdoor-related stores and restaurants. Pair it with the equally realistic "Expert Fisherman" Black Bear Sculpture, another talented creation by Samuel Lightfoot.
The Simon the Fox Garden Statue lets you pay homage to one of nature's craftiest creatures. The fox has been immortalized in folk tales and cartoons in many a culture, and in Japanese traditions, is viewed as a magical creature. For that reason, this realistic depiction of a wild Red Fox works well with garden fairies, gnomes, and other mystical creatures.

The backyard can have a pleasing display of garden fairy statues and Greek garden statues but won't be complete until it also boasts at least one animal yard statue. Animal garden statues can add a key, natural touch that helps to complete the look of a backyard. Although a sculpted fountain gives a crowning touch to backyard decor and no garden should be without one or two elegant garden benches, animal garden sculptures showcase the stunning and dramatic beauty of nature's palette. However, once you realize that the garden could use a statue of a wild animal, which type of animal do you get?
If you are looking for "cute", you can't go wrong with a Meerkat Sculpture. While many animals look cute in their own way, the Meerkat is unbelievably and undeniably adorable. In fact, this mischievous little creature looks so cute, it can be hard to believe that it actually exists. Its tiny black paws and little black mask make this furry creature look like it's always up to no good while its big pleasing eyes and tendency to stand on its hind legs melts the heart with ease.
However, if you would rather opt for majesty and drama, forget about the Meerkat and get a stunning Tiger Sculpture! The Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger Statue blends fine details and beauty for a very realistic, powerful depiction of this big Asian cat.

Animal garden sculptures make for eye catching decor that can fit into any decorating theme. Statues of wild animals such as lions, tigers, or deer celebrate the beauty of the natural world while statues of squirrels, roosters, and other familiar animals give the yard a cozy, wholesome touch. Although animal statues tend to be viewed as outdoor decor, some sculptures can make just as beautiful a statement when displayed inside the home. Brutus the English Bulldog is one such statue. This fine resin statue captures the fierce yet comical appearance of an English Bulldog intent on protecting its favorite chewing shoe, bone, or flower patch. Put this quality animal yard statue just outside the back door during the summer and put it next to the television during the winter.
The Playful Puppy Dogs Statue also looks just as cheerful when placed in a sunny summer garden or admired inside the home. This beautiful little statue captures the cute and happy appearance of puppy dogs at play with fine, realistic details.
Climbing animal statues can also make excellent wall decor inside the home after they have graced the walls in the garden. One such sculpture is the Giant Garden Gecko Lizard. The glossy green hues and bright yellow toes of this striking, three foot long plus gecko sculpture will add a bright bit of color and character to the walls of your home.
Find these and dozens of other excellent animal garden sculptures at Design Toscano today.

Halloween is much more than entertaining trick or treaters with candy and frightening decor. It's also a celebration and we show it by attending and throwing Halloween parties. These aren't just any old parties either but festivities that include Halloween-themed games, food, spooky music, and more. Two of the essentials for any Halloween party are costumes and decor. They help turn a regular get together into a memorable Halloween bash and decor plays a huge role in determining whether your party is a hit or one that ends up being forgotten a few days later. The following are three animal garden sculpture ideas to turn your Halloween bash into an unforgettable event:
Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture: Yes, Sasquatch is an animal too and one that makes a perfect fit for Halloween. Display this detailed depiction of the North American Ape on a tree in the backyard and it will be a frightening reminder to stay out of the woods (or your backyard) at night!
The Bad Intentions Giant Warthog Garden Statue: Add character to your Halloween decor with this intimidating statue! Modeled after one of the roughest, toughest wild pigs on the planet, the sharp, long tusks and stout, mean look of our Warthog makes it look like a natural gargoyle!
Growling Gray Wolf Statue: Use this very realistic statue of a growling wild wolf to give your yard a truly frightening touch.

Greenman statues can add an interesting touch to just about any type of backyard decorating theme. They can inject trees and garden walls with personality while acting as a nonchalant background decoration and work well with everything from classic Greek garden statues to realistic animal garden sculptures. However, if there's one holiday when this unique type of decor stands out, it has to be Halloween. Certain types of Greenmen sculptures can take center stage in Halloween displays on account of their eerie appearance. The Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture might look benign during the day but shows a completely different face on an October night. As the shadows lengthen, this garden statuary piece looks much more sinister and foreboding. Hang it on a tree in your yard and it will be just about guaranteed to give a sudden scare to Halloween party guests.
The same can be said of the even more frightening Spirit of Nottingham Woods Greenman Sculpture. Its piercing eyes and craggy features lend an uneasy, life-like look to any tree. Don't be surprised if you see party guests and trick-treaters alike giving this creepy decor a wide berth on All Hallow's Eve. Bring your trees to life with Wilhelm and the Spirit of Nottingham but don't forget to top off your greenman decorating by hanging the fantastic Poison Ivy Forest Witch on the front door of your place!

For most of us, the garden is somewhat of a green oasis. It represents a slice of the natural world and a peaceful place to which we can retreat and escape the hustle, bustle, and noise of the urban landscape. Various animals and plants also use our gardens as places to rest and recuperate and birds tend to be the most conspicuous of such wild backyard visitors. At this time of the year, quite a few birds are actually migrating south to escape the colder temperatures of October, November, and the winter months. Take a close look in the backyard and you will probably see some of them foraging in the trees and in the grass. Those birds need as much food and rest as they can get to make it to their tropical wintering grounds and are therefore even easier to watch when you present them with a bird feeder.
To feed those hungry migrants while adding beauty to the backyard, put up a Rabbit with Box Birdfeeder Statue. This cute detailed statue is a cheerful addition to any yard and has a "box" that can be filled with bird seed, flowers, and other types of natural decor. Pair it with the cute Rooster with Box Birdfeeder Statue to make sure that all of the birds coming to your yard will have plenty to eat.

Elephants are one of the most easily recognized and well known animals on the planet. Although wild herds of these large, impressive animals only occur in protected areas and remote regions of Asia and Africa, just about everyone in the USA and Canada is familiar with the elephant. Given their rather odd, unique appearance and immense proportions, elephants can't help but make an impression and this is partly why they have been associated with luck for centuries. The appealing nature of elephants have also made them the subject of hundreds of paintings, emblems, and sculptures. In Victorian gardens, they ranked among the most noble of animal garden statues and continue to fulfill that role in modern times.
The Good Luck, Trunk Up Baby Elephant Statue expresses the class and noble beauty of the Pachyderm with finely crafted details. Standing more than five feet tall, it raises its trunk as a sign of good fortune and adds an exotic yet classy touch to any yard. This lifelike animal yard statue also works very well as a conversation piece in a hotel or restaurant and looks even more realistic when paired with the truly Enormous African Elephant Statue. This fantastic depiction of an African Elephant stands nearly eight feet tall and shows the same textured hide, long tusks, and drooping trunk as the magnificent beasts that rule the plains of Africa.
Give your garden a beautiful, magnificent dose of good luck with these elephant statues and other stunning resin garden statues from Design Toscano.

Frogs are one of the more interesting members of the animal kingdom. They spend a fair part of their lives as aquatic creatures, hop and jump instead of walk, make interesting sounds, and can come in a beautiful array of colors. They are also innocuous, friendly animals to have near the house especially because the tadpoles eat the larvae of mosquitos and other biting bugs. As decor, they also make a pleasant, fun addition to the edges of backyard ponds, pools, and fountains.
Bronze garden frogs in particular make a wonderful addition to the backyard, especially when they also act as fountains on their own. The Lily Pad Frog is a cute, solid bronze animal yard statue that depicts one of those long-limbed amphibians hoisting a lily pad high over its head to show that frogs have just as much strength in their upper body as they do in their legs.
The Playful Pond Spitting Frog Bronze Statue is a beautiful, solid bronze statue that is 16 inches wide. It shows the same striped pattern on the legs as a live Leopard Frog and recycles water back into your fountain or pond in a long stream that issues forth from its mouth. Pair that realistic frog statue with the Lazy Frog on Lily Pad Bronze Garden Statue for a fun amphibian sculpture in a much more relaxed pose.
Find these fine bronze frog statues and dozens of other quality bronze and resin garden statues at Design Toscano today.
