Spend less time at the grill and more time enjoying the party.

  • Select meat type, choose preferred cooking temperature and close the grill—then walk away!
  • Stainless steel probe tracks meat temperature
  • Monitor features belt clip so you can step away from the grill while keeping an eye on your meat
  • Transmitter ranges 300’ and alerts you when your entrée is ready
  • Backlit digital screen displays meat type, preferred cooking temperature, current temperature and target temperature
  • Remote uses 2 AA batteries and transmitter uses 2 AAA batteries (not included)
  • For indoor and outdoor use

2. Age Your Own Whiskey Kit by Woodinville Whiskey Co.

The Age Your Own™ Whiskey Kit includes two 750 ml bottles of 110 proof White Dog un-aged whiskey, a 2 liter aging barrel, pouring funnel, two tasting glasses, and step-by-step instructions. Because of the small barrel size, the aging process is significantly accelerated with nicely aged whiskey available in 3-6 months (you be the judge!). Aging barrel can be refilled and reused 5+ times.

A lightweight, portable speaker that brings the party with you. The Beats Pill is wireless and Bluetooth enabled, so that you can play music from your device or take calls. Small enough to fit in your hand, the Beats Pill surprises with its powerful signature sound.

Just because you (or your dad) is nerdy doesn’t mean you can’t have great-looking, healthy skin. Kiehl’s has been a premiere men’s skin care company for over 160 years! Heck, they started as an apothecary in New York’s East Village neighborhood. (Nerdy, I know.) For only $42, you get all this:
