Scott and I recently went to a lovely wedding in the GA mountains. The setting was quaint and rustic and they got married in a little mountain chapel deep in the heart of the woods.
For their wedding gift, we sent them a grill. I know, isn't that what you might expect from GrillGrrrl and hubby? Because they didn't register anywhere, we didnt want to get them something too random and we figured Heck, everyone needs a grill to start off a life together!! So we got them a really cute Green Weber Kettle Grill. I didn't even know they came in green- love it!
Weber 757001 Gold One-Touch 22-1/2-Inch Kettle Grill, Green
We didn't haul this grill all the way to Georgia. We shipped it of course. We couldn't show up empty handed to the wedding so I made them a “BBQ Gift Basket”. Instead of using an actual basket, I used a chimney starter which any new charcoal grill owner will need. Consider this a “Grilling Starter Kit” complete with fire starting paraffin cubes, cedar planks, BBQ rubs, artisanal spices, sauces, tongs and even various woods for smoking. I even got the chimney started through security at the airport!
The idea here is to be creative as only you will know what your friends tastes are. But I see their being many uses here: “Housewaring gifts, Father's Day Presents, a chimney starter stocking for the BBQ/Grilling in your life.
Let me know what makes it into your BBQ gift basket! Heck, maybe this will catch on. If you would like a custom BBQ gift basket, email me and we'll make it happen. email@example.com
I'll wager and say this is one of
the more unique gifts the bride and groom received.

What a great idea for a gift. And I can’t believe you got this through security.
What a great idea, too cute. If I REALLY liked the person, I’d see about slipping a Thermapen in there.
For me, the simpler it is, the more it looks presentable. I like how you prepare the BBQ Gift Basket for a wedding. I appreciate it and can use it for any other occasion. The last time I sent a gift basket was for my Dad and purchased it through https://auntlauries.com/product/grilling-gift-basket-for-men/. It was so simple, yet the things inside were well appreciated.
