8 BBQ Host Gifts for Under $25It's grilling season - my favorite time of year. And not just because it's the hubby's turn to cook!
Summer brings people out into the open. Neighborhood walks, summer picnics, family cookouts … We're out of hibernation and social again. We're all about the grill these days. If you have as many barbecues to attend as we do, the host gifts can really add up. Plus, it gets a little tricky when your host is a guy (or a couple!). Here are 8 gifts for the grill master in your life that won't break the bank.
Flirty Aprons1. Flirty Aprons, $25.95
This apron is slightly over my original budget of $25. But isn't the 95 cents worth it for these adorable aprons? The phrases are too corny to resist!

4. BBQ Tool Belt, $24.95
This tool belt holds spices, condiments, and grilling tools right at your fingertips! I think I could get the hubby into one of these a little more easily than an apron.

Man Candles5. Man Candles, $1.99-$27.99
Candles are a long-standing tradition in hostess gifts, but now they come in dude scents for the guy in your life. Yankee Candle has just released a line of candles for men, including Riding Mower, 2x4, First Down, and Man Town. I don't even know what that means, but I think the hubby needs it.
