Father’s Day is just a few weeks away, so it is time to get together the perfect gift for your favorite home cook and grilling fan. The more specific to your father’s lifestyle and interests, the better the gift. So if cooking is his favorite thing to do, or if he loves trying out new ways to use the grill, check out these gift ideas.
Meat Thermometer: Brookstone.com offers a few options for these handy gadgets. For $29.95 you can get the Always Perfect Chef’s Fork Digital Meat Thermometer. They also offer a Grill Alert Talking Remote Meat Thermometer for $69.95. This is really great since it has a wireless remote. You can literally toss the meat on the grill and walk away and mingle with your guests. The voice prompt alerts you when your food is almost done and completely done!
Personalized Grill Grate: This gift is on the pricier side, but if your dad is a diehard sports fan, tailgater, or would appreciate your last name displayed across your grill, this is a good, unique gift. Prices start at $134.99, depending on the size of the grill. You can get his favorite college team or even create your own grill grate.
BBQ gift basket: Target offers an already made basket for $37.99, but you could really personalize your basket by making it yourself.
