Check out Grill Charms

Still looking for that illusive gift?
Check out Grill Charms for every guy in your life!
Orders placed by 12/20 are promised to arrive in time!
I have come across one of the hottest (literally!) most unique holiday gifts of the season. This product was recently featured on ABC's prime time reality TV show Shark Tank as well as the June/July Grilling Issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. A mom entrepreneur invented this stocking stuffer and grilling innovation after a very spicy light bulb moment during a dinner party she hosted went terribly wrong and she wound up with spicy food instead of her mild.Grill Charms™ offer an entirely new concept in outdoor entertaining. Grill Charms™ are dime-sized solid stainless steel charms that are placed in food BEFORE grilling. The serrated stem holds the charm in securely while flipping, moving and grilling food like the Grill Master normally does. Grill Charm™ food prior to cooking to distinguish spices and flavors, steak temperatures, or to avoid health or allergy issues. They stay in before, during and after grilling so when dinner comes to the table, simply look for your Grill Charm, and everyone knows which one is theirs.
There are four "hot" collections to choose from this holiday season.
