Giveaway & Review: Things Remembered Personalized Grill Set [CLOSED]

I don't know about you, but I personally find shopping for men's gifts to be far more difficult than shopping for women or children. The main problem is that most of what men want (power tools, electronics, tech items, etc . . . ) seem to cost a lot more money than I am able to spend. Luckily, Things Remembered has a wide array of gifts to choose from for under $75, under $50, under $20, and even some under $10.




Since my husband enjoys grilling, I thought that this personalized grilling tools set would be the perfect gift for him. It is much nicer than the one he had and, since these tools are presented so beautifully in this personalized storage case, I think he will take much better care of them (rather than forgetting about them and leaving them outside). I chose to have the box engraved with our surname, but you can opt for a longer personalization in a smaller font size.


This set comes with four essential grilling tools . . . a spatula (which can also be engraved), tongs, a fork, and a basting brush.


The wooden storage box is lined with a soft fabric and elasticized straps to keep the tools in place. The handles of the tools are made of artificial wood and come with straps for hanging. The spatula has a serrated edge for cutting meat and the bristles of the basting brush are silicone.


This set comes in a cardboard Things Remembered box that you can either wrap or just put a bow on it for easy gift-giving. My husband is usually very practical when it comes to functional things like cooking tools. He likes things to work well, to be sturdy, and easy to care for. This BBQ set is all those things.


Visit ThingsRemembered.com or your local Things Remembered store location to view their full line of gifts for Dad. For a limited time, you can received Free Shipping on U.S. orders of $100 or more. This is perfect if you need to buy for your husband, your own Dad, and your father-in-law this year. Be sure to check the estimated shipping dates on the bottom left of each product page to make sure you can get your gift sent on time for Father's Day, which is June 20th this year.
