Getting a gift for your man can be tough. I mean really tough. Especially if your honey is anything like mine and pretty much buys what he wants, when he wants it, which makes it pretty tough to purchase something when it rolls around to gift-giving-time. However, I’ve gotten a little creative over the years to think more outside the box of what your man wants but may not splurge and buy himself. So let’s jump into it!
Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg reaches perfect cooking temperature and is ready to use in just minutes. Our 100% lump charcoal is made in the USA from only the best cuts of natural oak and hickory for superb performance and results. Lighting the charcoal is always quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to circulate efficiently. Use our natural charcoal starter or an electric starter … and never buy lighter fluid again!
I purchased this a few years bag for my hubs and he absolutely loved it. It works as both as smoker and a grill and makes the most delicious food EVER.
Homebrew Starter Kit
The Brew Share Enjoy® Homebrew Starter Kit was designed by our brewmasters to provide the best out of the box first-time beer brewing kit experience on the market. This all-in-one kit includes everything you need to start brewing today including our Block Party Amber Ale recipe kit and 5 gallon stainless steel kettle.
So I will say my husband isn’t a big beer drinker but my mom gifted this to my Grandpa a few years back and he absolutely loved it and I thought it was the coolest idea. How many guys wouldn’t want to take to make their own brew? And, bonus points for it being a totally unique gift that he probably wouldn’t buy for himself. Plus, it’s on sale right now! Win!
