Gifts for Dad – The Grill Master

Bye Bye, May and Hello June! Summer is coming and so is Father’s Day, which means it’s time to start looking for some great gifts for Dad. What better gifts to give YOUR Grill Master than these personalized BBQ accessories I found on Zazzle — which, by the way, are on SALE, RIGHT NOW!

My husband, the father of my children, believes himself to be an expert when it comes to the art of grilling, and has therefore dubbed himself The Grill Master. Well, a Grill Master needs an apron like a King needs a crown – it’s a necessity. I love the style of this one, very bold but still classy, and you can put whatever name you want at the top.

It is very well made – a nice thick canvas fabric to hold up to his grilling shenanigans.. which usually involves the dog jumping on him at some point, and at least one shout of, “FIRE IN THE HOLE!”

Does your Grill Master have a secret sauce? Mine does – or so he says! It IS a bit of a mystery, I’ve never actually watched him to see what he puts in it, but it usually tastes pretty darn good. It could very well be just a regular jar of BBQ sauce. But I like it, the kids like it, and that’s all that really matters.

I thought a special bowl just for his top secret sauce would make him smile, so I designed this one with him in mind. This is customizable too, you can change “Dad” to any name! It’s actually a chili bowl, but I thought it would be better than a regular bowl since it has the cool little finger handle. 🙂

Every time MY husband gets his grill on he comes running in to the house in a panic at some point, saying “I NEED A PLATE!” and I scramble to find him one that he can’t destroy. Paper plates are too flimsy and I’m terrified he’ll break one of my ceramic plates — not that losing the plate is a big deal, it’s the shards all over the ground for a blind dog and a 1 year old to walk on that scare me..

…well now he can have his very own plate, and a towel to match. A very classy design on both with his initials; the plate is melamine so it can take a beating (no shards!)…

..and the towel is absorbent enough to handle his messes! I like the black towel, it will hide any stains that are sure to come from his secret sauce, and it looks great on the grill.

Our Grill Master just got a new grill, so I think these gifts will be a big hit! Don’t tell him I used it as a prop for my photo shoot.  😉

May is almost upon us which means that it is just about time to remind the Moms of the world just how special and amazing they are. I didn’t get it before, not really, but now that I am a Mom, I have the inside scoop.

So now is your chance to tell the Moms in your life that they ROCK, and to thank them for putting up with  loving you and taking such great care of you.
