Having a hard time finding the right gift for the foodie on your list? Here are three suggestions, ranging from the practical to the ridiculous. Got a cheese-lover on your list? Consider a subscription to Culture (culturecheesemag.com/), a magazine devoted to all things cheesy. Yeah, it’s a little expensive at $30 for 4 issues, but that wedge of St. Andre wasn’t exactly cheap either. What’s better than grilling while tailgating? How about the ability to brand your favorite team’s logo onto that hot dog or hamburger? The folks at Grill Toppers (thegrilltopper.com) have you covered, with cast-iron Husker grilling accessories/branding irons that enable you to sear your sincerity onto the protein of your choice. Prices range from $17.99 for a hot dog version to $49.99 for a grill-spanning grate that has five “sear circles” with various Husker logos. Lastly, why settle for run-of-the-mill ice when you can pay for something we can all get for free? Whether you have too much cash in your pockets or just forgot the recipe for ice, the folks over at Glace have you covered. Five of their luxury ice balls that are roughly the size of pool balls will run you $40. That may seem steep, but the Glace folks promise the spheres “will crackle and spider” but they “will not break apart like less deserving ice or home-made ice.” Go to glace-ice.com to marvel at their fabulousness.
