How to Pick Out the Best Gargoyle Gifts

The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set - MediumPay a visit to European castles and Gothic cathedrals that were built during the Middle Ages and you will see classic gargoyles glaring down from the ramparts. However, advances in resin garden statues have made it possible to put the same types of fantastic gargoyle garden statues on display right in your own backyard. They also make excellent gifts for anyone who appreciates unique garden decor but we should always try to pick out the most appropriate gargoyle statue for that lucky person.

To pick out the best gargoyle gift, start out by thinking about the garden where it will be put on display. If the person in question has garden gnomes and other cute statues, the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set will look right at home. These super cute gargoyles will look even better in a garden adorned with the eye-catching Babble, The Gothic Gargoyle Statue.

If the lucky recipient of a gargoyle gift happens to enjoy Gothic decor, there is a very good chance that they already have a gargoyle or two. Take a look in their garden to see if they already have something classic like the  Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a fantastic, frightening beast like Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle Sculpture.

Keep in mind that no matter which gargoyle you go with, when you buy that high quality statue from Design Toscano, it's going to look fantastic.

Spitting Gargoyle Of Notre Dame Statue, Historic Direct Casting

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I saw the original first-hand on the roof of Notre Dame de Paris in 1995. You had to pay to go up there, but the cathedral was being restored, and watching the workmen patching the parapets and cleaning the gargoyles was worth every franc. Things were badly weathered, and I think some of the gargoyles were actually replaced by precise copies. I really liked the spitting gargoyle and to be able to present him as a gonzo 41st wedding anniversary gift to my husband was simply golden. "Spitter" is sturdy if weathered-looking, built to last, just like the original, and commands enough presence with his size and forbidding visage that our dogs are yet to insult him even after several months. We love our "Spitter!"

Pay Nothing for Regular Shipping on Gargoyle Figurines from Design Toscano!

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle SculptureGargoyles have graced the ramparts of castles and cathedrals for centuries but thanks to modern resin technologies, we can also put these fantastic sculptures on display in our very own gardens. The detailed, bat-like wings, scales, and other intimidating features of this old Medieval form of art are an essential aspect of any Gothic decor theme, while the classic appeal of gargoyles makes even the most ferocious gargoyle suitable for a garden that also features angels, animal garden statues, and beautiful outdoor water fountains. The timeless appeal of the gargoyle makes this a suitable sculpture for both indoors and the outdoors and a fine gift for someone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

Whether you buy a gargoyle statue to be used as a winter holiday gift, or to decorate your own place, today is a great day for purchasing a gargoyle or two. Buy gargoyles today and tomorrow from Design Toscano, and you pay nothing for regular shipping! The absence of regular shipping costs makes today an excellent day to buy cute little Emmet the Gargoyle Sculpture for the garden, or Talysus the Terrible for the backyard.

Garden Décor: The Overlooked Excellent Gift Idea

"Dreamland Fairy" StatueSometimes 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.

Gargoyle Gifts for the Holidays

Argos Gargoyle Sentinel StatueThere are many types of presents that we can give for the holidays but the key to a good gift is finding one that will be appreciated or even adored by the recipient. If someone on your holiday gift list happens to love stories with dragons, plays fantasy video games, or is an aficionado of the horror genre, they are going to love it when they open that gift wrap and find a gargoyle statue. Gargoyles are classic decor that can give home and the garden an enchanting, magical touch. The different types of gargoyle sculptures also make it possible to find a gargoyle that fits into every decorating theme.

Cute Emmett the Gargoyle will look right at home in a backyard replete with cheerful garden gnomes, animal statues, and other light-hearted decor. Whether you put little Emmett off in a corner or right next to the back door, guests will love this littlest of gargoyles.

If you would rather see a classic, fierce, and intimidating gargoyle, Boden the Sentinel fits the bill with sharp claws, half open wings, and a no-nonsense expression on its fanged face. Put Boden on one side of a garden path and Argos the Sentinel Gargoyle on the other for full magnificent effect. If those are too fierce, you can go back to the cute route with The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles Sculpture Set.

Buy these gargoyles and any of the unique items on the Design Toscano site by the end of Sunday, November 17th and pay nothing for regular shipping.  

Free shipping ends on Sunday, November 17th and can't be combined with other offers.

Gargoyle Gifts for Halloween

Draga the Gargoyle Vampire StatueIt might still be warm outside but the cool, crisp days of autumn are just a few weeks away. As the weather gets cooler, many of us start to think about putting our favorite garden fairies, gnomes, and other resin garden statues back into storage. However, at the same time, we also need to start thinking about how we are gong to decorate the backyard for one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Halloween is going to be here in the blink of an eye and a big part of that fun holiday is turning the backyard into a temporary display of haunting, frighteningly good decor.

This Halloween, instead of sticking to the same old cut-outs of ghosts, glow in the dark skeletons, and pumpkin-themed decor, reward yourself and friends with the gift of gargoyle figurines and get serious with your spooky display. Shock and impress guests with detailed and realistic gargoyles such as Draga the Gargoyle Vampire Statue. Not only does this finely carved fiend watch over your Halloween party guests, but it also wants to bite their necks and shows it with a sinister look and sharp fangs.

While Draga watches guests from a corner of the yard, greet them at the door with fantastic sentinel gargoyles such as Argos and Boden. The sharp, regal details, toothy maws, and impressive appearance of these gargoyle statues will tell guests that they have just walked into the best Halloween party in town.

Find magnificent gargoyle sculptures and the best in garden statuary at Design Toscano today.

Resin Garden Statues as Gifts

Balancing a Dream Cherub Garden StatueGarden statuary doesn't have to be limited to your own decorating projects. Buy statues and sculptures of gnomes, fairies, and other subjects for friends and family and you might be surprised at how much they like such a gift. Resin statues and sculptures make for excellent gift items in part because people don't usually get them for a birthday or other occasion. They represent a fun change from the status quo while providing loved ones with long-lasting, beautiful decor.

Of course, you have to make sure that the sculptures you pick out will also be appreciated and loved by the person you are giving them to. For example, you probably don't want to pick out a gargoyle statue for someone who never watches horror films and has no interest in the fantasy genre. He or she probably won't appreciate even the best of gargoyle gifts so it's better to stick to something like animal garden statues or a beautiful stone garden angel. There are dozens of detailed animal sculptures to choose from and we have a veritable host of angels suited for every taste and garden.

Order these resin garden statue gifts and anything else on our site between now and February 14th and get 20% off the regular price.

This sale can't be combined with other offers.

Fun Gargoyle Gifts

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureGargoyles are such an interesting type of garden statuary. Unlike their angelic counterparts, these statues are designed to scare away evil spirits and evil-doers and attempt to accomplish this with toothy grins, a formidable muscled appearance, big clawed hands, and intimidating bat-like wings. They are the very definition of frightening so it might seem odd to put them in the garden. Nevertheless, these mythical creatures can be quite endearing and many of us find them to be simply fascinating. They remind us of gothic cathedrals, royal European castles, and fairy tales. They lend a certain sort of enchantment to any garden and that's why gargoyle figurines also make excellent gifts for just about anyone.

Emmet the gargoyle sculpture is downright cute and looks about as intimidating as a puppy. In fact, he looks like he needs a friend and will find plenty of fans when placed in a prominent spot in the garden. On the other hand, you wouldn't want to go near The Chained Cathedral Gargoyle. There's a reason why this protective, feisty gargoyle is kept on a chain and he shows it with tensed muscled arms, outspread wings, and an open, toothed maw.

For a truly frightening gargoyle, you can't get much more terrifying than the sculpture of Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows. The fine details and savage of appearance of this gargoyle make it seem as if the beast  is ready to come to life!

Get 20% off any on sale gargoyle or other on sale item at Design Toscano until February 1st as part of our Mid-Winter Clearance Sale!
