Whether it's Father's Day, your brother's birthday, or you need that perfect gift for your husband, we've put together a list of some of our favorite items for the men in your life. Whether your man is into grilling by the pool, working on old trucks in the garage, or just falling asleep in the recliner while his favorite team is on the tube, we've got great gift ideas for every type of man in your life.
First, let's bring the fire!
Charcoal Electric Fire Starter
Ditch the lighter fluid and the matches. This magic, flaming wand ignites charcoal, briquettes, wood logs, and pellets in less than a minute. Plus it's a toy and tool all in one!
Wireless Meat Thermometer
Monitor your next cookout without leaving the couch with this wireless meat thermometer. This nifty cooking device helps you grill, bake, pan fry, or smoke with accuracy and consistency, time after time. Take some pressure off your man's next cooking adventure without risking a burnt steak.
"Dad Bod" Grilling Apron
Hey, you can't earn a "Dad Bod" overnight, so why not flaunt it? Let Dad show off his grilling knowledge and Dad Bod with this comfy, ultra-breathable cotton apron. From kitchen to grill to table, this adjustable apron keeps Dad's clothes free of barbecue sauce and lets visitors know Dad is all about serious gear and serious grilling.
Two-Sided Cast Iron Griddle
This cast iron griddle from Barebones has a reversible cooking service, so you can cook pancakes on the smooth side and grill burgers on the grill side. Use this bad boy over a camp stove, home stovetop, or campfire and experience the pre-seasoned, natural oils already smothered on the griddle.
Greatest Play Mugs
Remember the Michigan State jump pass? What about when Kobe hit 81 points for the Lakers? Your man remembers. Help him celebrate his favorite team with a ceramic, dishwasher/microwave safe mug. Not only are these mugs beautifully designed, but they are also colorful enough to spice up your mug rack. (In addition to mugs, you can also find posters, coasters, baby onesies, and more.)
Copper Growler with Tap
Your man can be a pretty serious guy, right? But there's nothing he takes more seriously than his beer. Well, this mini keg is a half-gallon-sized tap that keeps quality beer fresh and on tap for weeks at a time. Let Dad enjoy the finer things, any time he wants.
Badass Barebones Field Knife
Whether your man is actually a badass or he just plays one on the Internet, this field knife from Barebones is a must-have. This 6-inch carbon steel blade has a durable walnut handle and waxed canvas sheath with a copper accent. (Yep, not only is it high quality, but it's also seriously cool.)
Black Truffle-Infused Hot Sauce
Does he love hot sauce? Of course he does. This set of two includes the original black hot sauce, and it also includes the new, hotter red sauce. This unique, luxurious hot sauce complements your meal without overpowering it, but it's also known as "mildly pungent," as it hits the 2,500-3,000 range on the Scoville heat index.
Handy 4-season Glove
Whether he's clearing brush or moving a still-smoking charcoal grill, every guy needs a quality 4-season glove. These waterproof leather gloves have a ribbed cuff and a "breathable hipora membrane" (whatever that means). Most importantly though, they're built to withstand anything from grabbing a burning log to ice fishing in 25 below temperatures.
Every guy loves to grill, right? Described as the "evolution of fire," Traeger's next generation of pellet grill brings an unrivaled wood flavor to meats, veggies, and more. These set-it-and-forget-it grills allow smoke masters to smoke, bake, roast, braise, and BBQ all year long. New models have Wi-Fi capability, and there's commercial and portable options to choose from.
"Grillin' And Chillin'" Cooking Apron
The grill won't be the only thing sizzlin' for this summer. Get your favorite backyard BBQ king our red-hot Grillin' And Chillin' apron. This adjustable apron is made of comfy, ultra-breathable cotton, so he can stay cool and dry all summer long. Grab this limited run item before it's gone!
Best Pit Barrel Cooker
They call it a "Be-All-End-All Cooker" for a reason. The Pit Barrel Cooker comes in either a 14 or 18.5-inch barrel. Both options allow for meat (such as juicy ribs) to hang vertically over hot coals while heat circulates around and tenderizes the meat – and it looks pretty badass while it does it. What can beat no-hassle cooking in a literal barrel of fire? Not much. Oh yeah, there's also a cool horseshoe handle for the lid.
