Man Gift

I have been long-suffering when it comes to purchasing “man gifts.”   I am always at a loss to come up with something that goes beyond the boring ol’ tie and wallet default, but recently I stumbled upon a genius idea… buy him something that SEEMS like it’s for him but will secretly benefit the whole family!!! Man oriented cooking gear and a good man cookbook.

Now that it is summertime, my husband loves nothing more than scorching meat on a hot fiery bbq and his hero/mentor/favorite person on the planet is Adam Perry Lang. Adam Perry Lang IS the “God of BBQ” and these books ARE the holy grail. I have personally tasted many of the recipes and although they can be labor intensive they are all beyond incredible. Lang recently released a short version of his first book “Serious BBQ” called “BBQ 25”  which offers less time-consuming recipes but if you know someone who loves to grill – get them a copy asap!  Also worth nothing is that Lang splits his time between London and NYC which I thought was pretty cool and he is opening a restaurant with Jamie Oliver in London in October 2010.

Then again there is always the beer holster.

I love the Eva and Oli maternity bag and would love to win one so hopefully I’ll be lucky and be in with a chance to have one of these lovely bags.
