So basic, but so important! Having a nice set of grilling tools is a perfect gift for the grill lover. The most important parts: brush, tongs, and spatula. I like sets that come in a case so they have a home and easy storage.
Why this is a good gift: Might as well have an amazing set of something that is used so often!
I use these ALL the time so of course I am including these in the 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list! I love grilling veggies, and I like to have them cut up because smaller pieces equals more char! Grill baskets are perfect for smaller items that you do not want to skewer. While I love skewers and kebabs, they can be cumbersome. But with a grill basket, just throw everything in and go! The holes in the baskets ensure that the flames can still reach through and you are not losing out on that grill char and flavor.
Why this is a good gift: Faster prep time for those smaller items while still allowing direct access to the flame.
One of my biggest pet peeves when grilling is when food falls through the grates! Grill mats will stop that problem, and also let you grill things that need a flat surface. The grill mats will even let you still get those desirable grill marks on your food through the mats!
Why this is a good gift: Easier to grill anything you want!
Cooking on a salt block infuses the food with the Himalayan salt, plus it makes for an amazing presentation! There are different sizes of salt blocks, so check for which size you think would be most appropriate. I like the 12×8 size as it is very versatile and one of the larger sizes. And if you get the salt block holder, make sure that it is the same size as the salt block!
Why this is a good gift: A fun and fancy showpiece!
Is your grill lover also a fish lover? Replicate those cedar plank salmon dishes that you find in restaurants with grill cedar planks.
Why this is a good gift: Bring the restaurant home with some flair on the grill!
Having a gas grill comes with its perks, however you miss out on the flavor and smoke factor of a wood or charcoal grill. A smoker box is the perfect way to replicate a smoker and get some extra flavor into your food! A box like this is perfect because it works in all gas grill types and is easy to use.
Why this is a good gift: Expand the function of your grill by making a smoker!
With or without a smoker box, wood chips are a fantastic way to infuse flavors into anything you are grilling. There are many combinations and flavors available. Get your grill lover a set of different wood chips like this pack of eight! If eight is too many, go for a few flavors like this pack of four. The plastic containers mean easy storage and labeling.
Why this is a good gift: A variety of smoke flavors for grilling versatility and creativity.
Sometimes moving things around on a grill can be cumbersome due to the heat. Especially if you are trying to grab skewers with tongs! Grilling Gloves are a perfect tool on this 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list so that you can use your hands without getting burned.
Why this is a good gift: Better dexterity without burning your hands!
Grilling meats to the proper temperature is extremely important for health and safety. Plus, you want to make sure you cook those steaks perfectly to everyone’s tastes. A grill thermometer is an easy way to get the perfect cook on your food. I love this grill thermometer because it has a portable unit that alerts you when your food is done. It also lets you program the specific food you are cooking and the pre-programmed options, taking a lot of the guess work out of grilling.
Why this is a good gift: Ensure food is safe to eat and the desired level of doneness.
Having a nice, metal set of skewers is a luxurious way to grill. No more thin wood skewers that catch on fire and give you splinters! Some sets come with a grid to rest the skewers on, keeping them from sticking to the grill, such as this set.
Why this is a good gift: Eco-friendly and easier to use with some personal flair.
I am a lover of jalapeno poppers! I love to make new combinations, and this pepper roaster is perfect for the job! It comes with a pepper corer to get the seeds out. Then you just stuff with anything you like, put them in the roaster, and pop them on the grill. Since they are vertical, there will be minimal mess.
Why this is a good gift: No spilling peppers!
For the ever popular beer can chicken! This chicken roaster is a great way to get that whole chicken grilled or smoked. It props the chicken upright and collects the juices in the bottom of the pan. This prevents flame ups from grease getting into the fire. It also comes with a shaker that can be used to apply a rub or seasoning. A classic grill tool that deserves a place on this 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list.
Why this is a good gift: Classic and functional.
If your grill lover is also a fan of oysters, this is the perfect gift! The pan fits twelve oyster halves and is a perfect way to get a grill or smoked oyster.
Why this is a good gift: Something fun and unexpected for the seafood lover!
Fish is notoriously one of the more difficult items to cook on a grill. The delicate and flaky texture makes it difficult to flip and more prone to sticking to the grill. A fish basket is designed to hold fish and any accompanying ingredients together. The basket keeps the fish off of the grill grate so it does not get stuck.
Why this is a good gift: Makes it much easier to grill fish!
When I first started trying to grill pizzas, I found that the crust would often burn too much on the bottom before it was cooked all the way through. Very frustrating for this pizza lover! But having a grill pizza stone is a perfect way to use your grill while controlling that flame. A must have on this 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list for the pizza lovers!
Why this is a good gift: No burnt pizza!
A popular item to cook on grills is a burger! But sometimes those burgers can be difficult to move and may fall apart. A burger basket keeps the burgers intact and protected within the cage. This makes them less likely to stick to the grill and less likely to fall apart. They are easy to flip this way and makes the burger basket a must-have for burger lovers in this 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list!
Why this is a good gift: Easy to flip and holds the patties together!
A griddle is a great way to give more flexibility in what can be cooked on the grill! This griddle is reversible with one smooth side and one grill side. The smooth side is a great function for the grill itself because you can cook things that need a flat surface.
Why this is a good gift: Another way to add more flexibility to the grill!
I love a good char from my grill, and this cast iron press is a perfect way to get that! The weight of the press places more stress on the grill contact points. The cast iron press can be used on almost any items that you want a good char or grill mark on, making it extremely useful. Another must-have from this 20 Gift Ideas for Grill Lovers list.
Why this is a good gift: An unexpected tool that will be versatile and useful for any grill lover.
I absolutely love using flavored salts, especially on the grill! The different flavors season the meat or vegetable. There are so many different flavors, getting a variety pack is a great way to let your grill lover experiment with new ideas! They are extremely versatile and a fun gift that can be used in many ways.
Why this is a good gift: A unique gift that your grill lover can experiment with!
Even when it is cold outside, you can get your grill fix and bring the grill indoors! I love to use my griddler with the grill plates. It is not quite the same thing, but it is pretty close! The indoor griddler grill is very versatile, with both flat and grill plates, and can be used for numerous tasks.
Why this is a good gift: Perfect for the grill lover when it is too cold to grill outside.
