Fire Up the Grill for Father’s Day

Fire Up the Grill for Father’s Day
Grill Game Strong

One of the best ways to spend summer days and nights is grilling outdoors–and the adored pastime has Father’s Day written all over it. Traditionally manning the grill was dad’s domain, and while that’s an outdated notion in a lot of families, (including Athena’s), the idea of firing up the burners al fresco still has massive appeal for pretty much the entire family, dad included. The best lazy warm-weather days are the ones spent eating and grillaxing under the sun, hopefully with some good-looking gear and swoony surroundings. With that, here are 10 essentials to gift your padre or father figure. They’re functional, high-quality pieces he can reach for time and again, all season long.
