Summertime Essentials

Vacation Gifts and Summer Fun
June 20th marked the official beginning of summer. The best part of summer is getting together with friends and family, cracking open a couple of your favorite ice cold beverages, and cooking way to much food on the grill. We are rapidly approaching the biggest grilling day of the year with the July 4th holiday. If you are not hosting a party, chances are you will be attending one, and either way you’ll want at least one of these grilling gifts. Here are a few must have 4th of July gifts.

The great thing about grilling gift baskets is you can bring them with you to a July 4th BBQ to give as a gift, or if you are hosting the party, you can use the gift basket to make your party a hit. An absolute must have for any outdoor BBQ is the Grillin & Chillin BBQ Gift Basket. This basket comes with all sorts of grilling tools that every griller can use. It also is packed with different rubs and sauces. But what makes this basket so special is the Barbecue! Bible - Sauces, Rubs, and Marinades, Bastes, Butters and Glazes Book. This book contains 200 recipes on 320 pages, and I have yet to find one recipe that disappoints.

A grilling gift basket is a great gift to give to the hosts of the party. It also is a great gift to give yourself if you are planning a summertime party, but what about the person manning the grill? They often are too busy feeding every one else that they don’t eat until everyone else is done. Isn’t time to thank them? The Grillmaster Apron Plus Personalized and in Color of Choice is the perfect way to do this. This apron is essential to any serious griller. Not only does it keep the sauce off of you, it also holds some invaluable tools. The extra features on this apron include an oven mitt, bottle opener, and towel. The Spacious pockets are ideal for holding grill tools or other barbecuing necessities. The Grillmaster Apron also has a bottle holder that is designed to hold your favorite beer. Top the look off with your Monogram embroidered in the color of your choice, and this apron very well could be the best grilling accessory ever.

If you are traveling to get to your BBQ, you always need to be prepared, two of the most important items to bring to any BBQ, bonfire, camping trip, or any other summertime activity is a cooler to keep your refreshments cold and a chair to relax in. The Cooler and Seat Personalized and in Color of Choice fills both of these needs. This fun item combines a cooler with a sports seat. With this gift you will always have a fresh drink or a cool snack within an arms reach. This gift is also embroidered with your monogram so you never have to worry about someone taking your seat.

All these gifts make a great addition to any summer time activity. It doesn’t matter if you are grilling, tailgating at your favorite sporting event, your just enjoying a warm weekend with the family. Anyone of these great summertime gifts is sure to add a little pizzazz to your next summertime get together.

Father's Day Gift Basket Ideas

Fathers Day Gifts
Father’s day is officially right around the corner. With each passing day, the window of opportunity to order a Father’s Day gift and receive it on time gets smaller and smaller. If you still haven’t thought about what to get dad this year, don’t worry it’s not too late. You can still order some great gifts from Arttowngifts.com. When you think gift baskets, Dad is probably not the first thing that pops into your mind. However, after you check out Arttowngifts.com’s line of Father’s Day themed gift baskets it might be.

If your dad is like mine, then grilling is much more then cooking, it’s a borderline religion. This year feed the addiction with the Grillin & Chillin BBQ Gift Basket. This basket was designed with the grill master in mind. The basket contains just about ever tool and gadget need to grill. Plus you get some BBQ sauce and rub. The best part of this basket is the Barbecue! Bible book, this book has over 300 pages with 200 recipes. Get your dad this gift and keep him busy grilling all summer long.

Would you prefer to get your dad a more traditional gift basket filled with great tasting treats? Take a look at the A Great Dad Gift Basket. This wooden basket is stuff to the brim with tasty treats that your dad will love. Enjoy the nuts, sausage, crackers, cheeses, cookies, and popcorn for days to come. This basket also comes with a large ceramic great dad mug, because no Father’s Day can be complete without a brand new coffee mug for dad.

My dad is the kind of guy who likes to throw a cold one back every now and then. He doesn’t drink all that much. He says there is no reason to drink now that his kids have all moved out of his house. I always thought he was joking, but now and days I only see him drink a beer when the family all gets back together, so I am beginning to believe that us kids do play a part of his drinking. That’s why this year I’m getting dad the Father's Day Beer & Snack Gift Basket. Not only will this bring a smile to his face and play on an inside family joke, but it is full of some tasty contents. The basket has three different great tasting beers and the perfect snacks to accompany these beers.

This Father’s Day remember gift baskets can contain more than just caviar and anchovies. Arttowngifts.com has a whole line of Father’s day gift baskets. It doesn’t matter if your dad is a griller, golfer, sports fanatic, or just a great dad, you are sure to find a basket that fits his personality.
